No elevators!!

It was my fault in not inquiring about an elevator when checking into this hotel. Frankly, who would think that there would be a lack of one in today's travel.

Because my husband and I do not stay on the first floor of any hotel, it was a huge inconvenience to not have an elevator to transport all of our luggage to a second floor. So, we opted to keep our lugguge in the car and run up and down the stairs as needed. So, even if the hotel was outstanding, my opinion is jaded by the "no elevator" experience.

We have stayed at this hotel for four nights this year. Great pool, hot tub, with a restaurant & bar, Rooms were comfortable but our stay was ruined by a noisy family upstairs and another one next door. Otherwise we enjoyed our time here.

Got rate on Priceline for good value. Loved our balcony to watch fireworks on the 4th of July! Nice friendly staff at check in and in lounge - good "happy hour" discount on food and food was delicious. Room very clean and very comfortable. A/C worked good as it was hot weather. Parking spots could be a tad wider. We did not use, but pool and pool area looked very inviting. Hotel is all non-smoking but could still smell smoke in lounge area - probably soaked into ceiling tiles,etc., but was not horribly bad. This was rated a 3-star with Priceline, but I thought it rated at least that if not a bit higher (out of 5).

Room Tip: West side 3rd floor balcony had the fireworks view, but is on side nearest I-5. Highway noise did no...

I only stayed here for one night but here are my pros and cons:

PROS: Rooms were clean and comfortable, beds linens were nice and they provide lots of extra pillows. Easy to get to right off the freeway and close to shopping and restaurants in the area. Check in was fast and easy. Parking is plentiful. Their fitness center is great. Lots of newer treadmills and cross-training machines. The weight machine is versatile enough to satisfy most anyone. Staff was helpful if not overly friendly.
CONS: There are NO elevators on this property. I didn't even think this was legal. And I agree with previous reviewers that it is a long, long walk down the hallways to get to wherever you need to go. We were there during a horrible heat wave (104-110 degrees!) and their air conditioner for the hallways and common areas is definitely not up to the task. It was uncomfortably hot. The AC in our room had to be turned down to 60 degrees to make it comfortable. Breakfast was good but they were out of certain things for long periods of time and we had to wait too long for things to be refilled.

Service at this Redding hotel is good. Staff is friendly and efficient. Unfortunately buildings are old and tired... Hallways and rooms dark. However new beds were great! Had a peaceful, restful sleep. Good for that one night stay while traveling through the valley/ I-5 corridor.

We arrived to city around 3am first I went to high rank hotels and inns which trip advisor recommended in redding city. Since it was 4th of july most of them where occupied. We passed the red lion and my husband suggested this hotel, I wasn't sure about the 14th hotel on trip advisor's list. I am so happy the other one's had no vacancies. It's such a nice hotel for the price and I don't know why it's on 14th of trip advisors list. Such a friendly front desk, such a friendly staff and most importantly they are trying hard to do better on trip advisor.
Cons,
Honestly the hotel was dated but it was clean. I wish they would put more healthy stuff for breakfast. It would be nice if they put tooth brush in bathrooms too.
