I recently stayed at the Anaheim Red Lion Hotel and let me say it was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Upon arrival we checked in to our very small room and found that the AC was not working properly in the room or on the 8th floor where our room was. Every day we turned on the air and when we came back to our room it was set at 80 degrees, when it is over 90 out, we expect to come back to a nicely cooled room and that never happened. The repair man told us it was the maids that turned it off, but since it turned off at night as well I don't believe that was the case.
Our shower head had barely any water pressure and it was broken. When trying to shower you had to lean up against the wall to be able to get to the water. When I told the front desk at 8am they said they would have someone up to fix it right away, when we arrived later that afternoon it was not fixed. Front desk said they would send someone up in an hour, and that person showed up at 3pm (2 hours later), we asked if they could give us 30 minutes since our kids were still sleeping and the guy said he was leaving in an hour for the day so he couldn't come back till tomorrow. SO we expected that the next day the shower would be fixed, it was not. 3 days without a properly working shower for 4 people is not acceptable!
Also there were huge stains on the sheets, they looked like they had not even been changed upon arrival the 1st day, very gross! Carpets were filthy, dust lined everything even in the bathroom.
I really wish someone would have called to tell us the pool would be closed during our entire visit, as well as the restaurant! To have to be told on our only summer vacation that my kids (4 and 1.5) will have to walk across the street to a different pool is very inconvenient, dragging wet kids all over the place is not my idea of a relaxing vacation.
Staying at the Red Lion ruined our vacation, we would have been better off staying at a motel, the amenities were about the same. I am very annoyed at the service we were provided and the uncleanliness of the hotel during our sta
