One day our bathroom toilet wouldn't flush, so my cousin attempted to fix it herself. Apparently it made it worse so the toilet started to overflow!!!! Pee water began to spill out all over the floor!!!! We ran away quickly because we thought it was gonna keep on overflowing!!! Then after a few minutes it stopped so we look in... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat! Straight out the door and onto the beautiful Riverwalk. We took a stroll there right after dinner. The staff are super friendly and they had a Happy Hour in the Bar from 4 to 6 p.m. The breakfast was delicious. The bed was without doubt the most comfortable I have slept on!

Nice room and location. River walk is right out the door. Pet friendly but did not appreciate that the restaurant will not allow pets on the patio. Since we were not willing to leave the dog in the cars or the room we had to walk up the street to Sonic.

Great location, great restaurant. Our room seemed clean, and newly updated, but smelled of cigarette smoke, chlorine and body odor. Not worth the $230 per night during Hoopfest. Normal rates were $79 a night. I booked through booking.com.

There was a lot of renovation to the hotel going on during our visit. We understand that it caused some inconviences to guests. The construction was not a problem. I was, however, disappointed with the room and the deck outside of the restaurant area. There was no ice bucket in the room. I called the front desk and a bucket... More

Had to switch rooms 3 times. Don't take a room in the 400's if you don't like the smell of smoke. The lay out is such that the main hallways run along side 1/3 of the rooms so it can be noisy. Popular w kid/teen traveling groups so the hallways can be noisy as you would expect w large groups... More

This is an older hotel that could use some upgrading in the hallways and common areas. The rooms are not bad and we were quite thankful for the A/C! The hotel borders Gonzaga University which was where we needed to be, and the riverside trail system is just outside the door. This is a convenient hotel if you want to... More

The motel is an older one that could use some updating but it seemed clean enough and the staff was pretty friendly. Breakfast rates were higher than seemed reasonable so we did not give it a try. The room was comfortable enough and quiet. Overall, the location is really the only compelling reason to stay at the Red Lion.
