First impressions of this hotel are great. It looks modern as you enter. There are free bikes to use which is a nice touch. Check-in is a pain and takes ages. There was just one lady helping with a line of about 5 people. She was friendly and kind but took too long. The food is good but the service... More

Stayed here for two days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was spacious and clean. Nice amenities. Only complaint was brunch. It was way understaffed. I had to wait 20 minutes just to get a menu and another 30 minutes after I ordered to get my food. The waitress was nice, it wasn't her fault there weren't enough workers, she was... More

It wasn't the easiest place to find, but it was well worth the effort. It's not 5-star but is very clean, very comfortable and very quiet. The room was certainly big enough for us to spread out all our luggage and the facilities were all that we needed. Having said that, a tea/coffee maker in the room would have helped.... More

We stayed at RL on our way to Seattle. The room was very pleasant and spacious. There is a huge TV. Breakfast was included. Keep in mind - it is not buffet, it's a la carte from limited options, service is quiet slow. The breakfast area has gorgeous views. We were very happy with our stay.

A good basic hotel, clean and spacious rooms. They managed the conference well and the food was a good quality seeing as they were dealing with 300+ delegates. Nice pool, unfortunately didn't get into the gym.

Since no one at this hotel bothered to ask how my stay was, I'll type it out here. I booked last minute and arrived late and exhausted for an overnight stay between Rainier and ONP. Check in desk is a card table set up in the lobby; check-in staff seemed nice. On arrival to the room at first glance it... More

This was my first visit to a Red Lion Hotel. I was looking for somewhere to stay for the night, on my way back from Oregon to Vancouver, Canada. I found this hotel on line, and picked it because the price looked good, the location near Olympia, but not near a noisy highway, and it was pet friendly. I just... More

Just because there was a recent remodel doesn't mean it is a good place. We waited 20 minutes in line and an additional 10 to check in. The front desk is actually a 6' wide rolling cart with 2 computers. Yes, it really is! The staff spoke unprofessional and wore jeans. I came here because I wanted a nice place.... More

The person who checked us in was incredibly nice and helpful. Wish I'd gotten his name. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. There was a refrigerator. Free coffee in the morning and a specialty drink for each guest with the coupons they give you. Good wifi. That's the good stuff. And good location. They even provide bathrobes... More
