Our family have been staying in Yakima every summer for over 12 years. We have previously stayed at this hotel numerous times. This time I really noticed the cleanliness of all parts of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I huge upgrade from previous visits! The breakfast was great for the price. Room was comfortable and quiet.... More

After a horrible experience at the Best Western in town, we came here and the Manager, Maria, was awesome!! Enjoying a nice , quiet stay out in the sun by the pool. This is our second stay here and both have been great. Highly recommend!!

But that was 20 years ago. The carpet is funky. The stains are many. The food is mediocre. The service at the front desk was grudgingly given. It needs a major overhaul. One easy thing... Get the front desk staff to smile. It is obvious they are not proud of the place now. I cannot recommend the place any longer.

First the pros: The bed is comfy, the shower great, the A/C efficient, and no bedbugs. Breakfast was very good with a nice variety of foods, hot and cold. The catered food at an evening reception was delicious. The cons: Sheets don't fit the King bed well and the mattress pad was too small; bathroom not cleaned completely (open soap... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. Easy access to the freeway, on a main street, but very quiet. Our room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. There is a very nice outdoor pool. They have a decent buffet breakfast at a low price. I would stay there again if I were to return to Yakima.

The older a hotel is, the more it smells of air freshener and deodorant....this was a fine example! Nothing really wrong with it, but nothing to get excited about either. I'm sure one could do better simply by staying somewhere newer.

Hi Stephen, Thanks for the feedback. Although we are an older property we like to pride ourselves as being clean, comfortable and a great value. Not many hotels in town can say that they have 2 outdoor pools, free full, hot breakfast or a great lounge. Hope to see you again in the future. More

HVAC unable to handle summer heat. 85+ degrees INSIDE our room at 10 p.m. Many guests wanted fans, none left for us. Would have been nice to open window or sliding door, but no chance of that in downtown Yakima. Checked out at 5 am & was told they've had "issues" with air conditioning- ya think?

I'm sorry you had the experience that you did. The central air is struggling in the hot temps. We have installed air conditioners in half of the rooms affected and the other half will be done very soon. Hope you'll give us another chance. Thank you! More

Room smelled like stale smoke. Room air conditioner not working. Try finding an ice machine. The staff was not responsive. You could not reach front desk by phone. Elevator was not working. Service in the restaurant was slow. This hotel was far from being up to Red Lion standards.

Hi there, I'm sorry you had the experience you did. It is certainly not typical. I hope you will give us another chance in the future. I am happy to let you know that we've installed air conditioners in each guest room and have about 15 still to go and the elevator is also in good working order. More

The Red Lion in Yakima is atypical of my other Red Lion experiences. It really reminded me of a slightly upgraded Motel 6. While the decor of the rooms was nice, it was haunted with a sense of grubbiness. This probably has a lot to do with the super humid rooms with poor airflow and poor cooling elements. I had... More
