Do NOT stay here!! The HOUSEKEEPING STAFF STEALS from their patrons and the management does nothing to help. I left my expensive organic latex pillow (who would steal a pillow, right, except to replace it is over $100) in our room when we checked out, called the next day after I realized it was gone, and about 5 times after that, and even went back to the hotel a week later, and it was no where to be found. This isn’t a small earring that gets swept into the garbage and disappears. This is a king sized pillow that one of the housekeeping staff took. They had no interest in helping remedy the situation and identify where it went so that person still works at the Red Lion. Not to mention that the room was not cleaned well to begin with-there was an opened bar of soap and wrapper left in the shower. We didn’t complain bc we’re not usually complainers, but after the situation with my pillow, I feel it is necessary to warn others about this place. Look and stay elsewhere!!

Thank you for your comments, we are sorry you lost your pillow. I am not sure why someone would want to take it. We spoke with all of our staff and unfortunately housekeepers said that they did not see any extra pillow in the room that you had stayed it. We hope that you are able to find it.

We check in July 5th and immediately check out July 5th !! What a rundown dump . This hotel is in need of a complete upgrade . It was dirty and rundown . The only good thing about this place was the young lady at the front Desk . She was very understanding and said she was sorry . We stayed at this location three years ago and it was nice .

The wood floors were squeaky and slippery. The room wasn't ready even though we came to check in it was close to an hour after we could check in. Nobody under 18 is allowed in the hot tub so my 6 year old that can be in any other hot tub in hotels we've been to he couldn't and my 17 year old couldn't either. The swimming pool was nice though goes from 3 to 8 feet. The beds are comfy. Seems like the walls were a little thin or the child and dog were super loud.

My family and I stayed last night. We normally stay at the Hampton and I wish we did this time. Beds are super soft at Red Lion so my back hurt all night. Rooms are roomy but that's the extent of nice. Beds are on wheels and roll around on the wood floors. Breakfast is an extra cost. They say Buffett like it's a big thing but it's super small and tastes terrible. Eggs were over cookedand sausage was a shriveled piece of meat. Yogurt was warm and coffee was colored water. I couldn't bring myself to try anything else. It was definitly not worth the price paid as the Hampton is 100 times better for the same price as the stay and an amazing breakfast is included over there. I will never stay at another Red Lion again.

Providing a clean and comfortable bed is one of the most important things we can do, so it is unfortunate that yours was not to your preference. It is also regrettable that breakfast was not what you expected. We would love any suggestions on what we can do to improve and ensure a quality experience for our future guests. Safe travels.

Expedia messed up our reservation and the "manager" here refused to refund our money or even let us book the date we were supposed to have one week later. Complete lack of customer service in my opinion. They just canceled my room I booked yesterday for tonight. Because of my Google review. This is how they take care of a disabled American Veteran! Also, the manager lied to me on an email saying that Expedia failed to contact them even though Expedia has documented.It.

Dear Sid, We are sorry to hear about what occurred with the booking of your reservation. Please book with the property directly to make sure that such mistakes do not occur or can be fixed promptly without the involvement of third parties. Our cancelation policy is 24Hr before date of arrival. If the room was booked within the 24Hr period through a third party it is not cancelable. I have also spoken with all my managers regarding this situation none of them have received any calls from Expedia about canceling or changing the dates on your reservation.
