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

First I will say that I do like Red Lion hotels in Suites. Generally the staff were very friendly. The rooms are always comfortable. They just did a remodel at the Red Lion in Olympia. I think they have a ways to go. All of the floors in every room are wood. Which means if there is a room above... More

I previously stayed here and gave the hotel a positive review. Unfortunately I cannot do the same this time. The hotel has been recently remodeled and it looks nice upon entering the lobby. There are bikes you can borrow to ride around and the lobby is new and modern. However, that is where the good experience ended. The check-in staff... More

Recent renovations of rooms. I love the fact that they put laminated hardwood on the floor to replace the carpet. Room had a 50 inch tv mounted to wall.

Had the opportunity to enjoy a night at this Red Lion, but . . . we did not enjoy. It started with taking over half an hour to check in when we had reservations. Then we visited our room, and it was not a king sized bed as we requested. Nice enough room though, lots of room for handicap access.... More
