Although sites like Priceline still list Red Lion (and says “sold out” or similar when you try to book) it shuttered it’s doors in July 2019 due to multiple structural issues. After opening in 1984 and changing hands and corporations, it stopped booking at the end of July 2029, and its fate is now uncertain.

Worse experience of my life. Worse hotel I ever stayed in. Roaches in the room, AC didn't work properly. My daughter found a roach in her bed on night 2 and had to sleep in her car! Only one elevator was working. Place was full of mold. Many of my friends got sick after staying here.

Bugs, mold, leaks...they have it all. Bathrooms leaked water. Cockroaches in rooms. I can’t believe I paid to stay here. I won’t be staying here again. The staff was the only good thing about this place.

We are always looking to provide our guests with a quality stay and a full-fledged experience, so it is regrettable that this was not your experience. Our property goes under routine maintenance for pests, and as such, it is surprising to hear that this was not the case for you. Your feedback has been passed along to our maintenance team and pest service in hopes of a prompt resolution. That being said, we're pleased our team of fun and friendly staff was able to deliver the top-notch service we strive for. Should you revisit the area, we'd love the chance to make it up to you.

found 2 roaches in my room. floor was very dirty with stains all over. The shades had holes all over them. The room also smelled of a chain smoker for a non smoking room. one of the elevators didn't work. the doors to rooms you could not get open & had to almost force your way into your room. This hotel is in DIRE need of a complete make over/ renovation.

What struck me first was the dirty glass doors. The first impression was ruined at that moment. There was no pride in what once had been a beautiful establishment. How sad really! There are numerous examples I could mention about is wrong with The Red Lion at St Joe, but I think you already know. Unless renovations are done it will slowly decay until it is unusable. Very sad!
