I had stayed at Red Lion hotels in the past and been pleased with the facilities. However, this was the first time staying at this location, and we won't be back. I made my reservation by phone with Red Lion directly, and I was told that I could sign up for their rewards card and earn points on this stay. However, upon checking in, we were told that this location was privately owned and did not apply points to the rewards card. The front desk staff was fairly unhelpful and lacked knowledge about restaurants in the area, etc. The bed was not comfortable and resulted in poor sleep. On the first night we requested extra washcloths in the bathroom. At other hotels when we make that request they automatically give us extras for each of the remaining days of our stay. At this location we had to ask each day. Also, water glasses were not replenished each day. The elevator appears to need some repairs, and my husband felt that the brakes on the elevator were probably going to fail. (An accident waiting to happen.) And parking was difficult to find at times, as the hotel shares its parking lot with some other businesses. The price was good for our room, but with the rest of our experience not being very favorable, we will not be back to this hotel.
