We needed a place to stay passing through en route to Vegas and ended up paying about $79 for a room. We were very satisfied considering the amount we payed. Just a few things to be aware of: Hotel seemed pretty dated (curtains in our room had holes in them and walls were beat up.) "Complimentary breakfast" was passable; limited... More

There are some renovations that still need to be done ceiling patching in the room bit overall it is nice. It was quiet and clean and the full... More

A mature hotel but well maintained. Big pool and surprise breakfast. Coffee shop instead of standard self serve in most hotels. Bath room toiletries were of very high quality. The place just exceeded our expectations. We will make sure to stay here again!

This hotel is an older facility, but is reasonably priced and clean. The rooms exit to the outside, and depending on where your room is, it either is to the parking lot or the protected but outside walkway. My room was on the second floor. As I rolled my luggage, a small ice chest, and my brief case towards my... More

I love this chain of hotel, they were very accommodating when it came to my son's service dog, although at first they misunderstood the fact that I was looking for a dog friendly room (which are smoking rooms) they gave us a non smoking room. The pool although we didn't use it was huge and very inviting.

It was fine for the price. Large room, relatively clean but run down. I'd agree with the other reviewers who said it needs renovation. Free wifi was nice. Free breakfast was a plus. Six things to choose from including a quick cold option if you need to grab and go. It was basic but hot fresh food beats a stale... More

I wanted to be able to share my amazing stay at the Red lion Inn. When I walked in to the lobby Emily at the front desk was really nice and very professional. I was able to get a clean comfortable room without having to wait. I just wanted to say thankyou to Emily the front desk agent.

While clean, cool in our room while 107 outside, this hotel needs to be closed and completely renovated and repaired. It was shabby and not so chic. The pool and hot tub were closed by the health department, however they did advise us of this at checkin. The "free breakfast" was ok, but the menus were worn and grubby. The... More
