“Don't plan on being able to use internet”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

The hotel was clean upon arrival, room was clean, nice bed, pillows were ok...they say they have wireless internet............not true. I went to the front desk to see if I could get some assistance, they just nope, it doesn't work very well, nothing we can do. She said the best connection was at the front lobby...you still couldn't get a strong enough signal to connect up. The computer they provide in the lobby that was wired in was slower than you can guess...with interuptions in service. For this reason alone, if you need internet...stay else where.

First the positives.

Enjoyed having a restaurant on the premises.
Rueben Sandwich, Salad Bar and soups were exceptional.
Appreciated group discount for river boat tour participants
Catered Baron of Roast Beef dinner again was exceptional, particularly the vegetables; hear many positive comments

Negatives
Most uncomfortable beds we have encountered in some 20 years of travel together.Much to soft to sit upon, sleep in, or anything else; still suffering from back aches
On arrival asked for toothbrush as promised on the card; was told to go to Albertsons.
Room paint choice was meant to be restful, but made the room very dark
Limited lighting, again made it very dark
A/C on auto ran all night, very noisy - had to use earplugs to block the noise
Block out curtains were too short, so light showed underneath
Hair dryer output very weak, took a long time to dry my short hair
Luckily had brought our own pillows, because those provided were very thin
CFL lighting in the bathroom took a long time to brighten so you could adequately see yourself in the mirror
Prices in restaurant and room service for breakfast were very high $13.99 for breakfast wrap with coffee; lost many customers in our group
to the adjacent McDonalds for $5.49.

Room Tip: Check for discounts

The Red Lion came through with rooms for us on an extremely busy weekend (graduations) that had pretty much every hotel within 100 miles booked solid. My room (double queens) was in the main hotel area and was very clean and comfortable. The only drawback was a very noisy air conditioning system (mounted in the ceiling.) I didn't get an opportunity to eat at the attached restaurant but the menu looked quite good.

However, my colleague was less satisfied as he ended up in the Seaport rooms across the parking lot (co-located with some banquet rooms) where the noise level was very loud from people standing outside on the sidewalk and in the parking lot. He also commented the decor in this section is extremely dated and worn. If staying here I would insist on rooms in the main hotel area and not in the Seaport area.

My Mom, me and our two dogs stayed here over the weekend. I got a great deal on price and found that if you joined their rewards program, the dogs stay for free - normally $20 charge.
Our room was spacious with two COMFY queen beds. There was a small recliner, computer desk & chair, small fridge, microwave and a mini coffee maker. The tv was large and sat on top of the dresser. I liked the entry way that offered plenty of room to put your suitcase and have a bit of privacy when someone was using the bathroom, which was large too with double sinks, marble counter and curved shower curtain rod - always a nice bonus.
There was plenty of light with free standing lamps on the desk, behind the recliner and on the nightstand. Our room faced the river, but also the freeway so you could hear the trucks downshifting through the night - but that was all. I never heard anyone walking upstairs or in the hallway so I actually slept through the night - what a bonus.
They have a restaurant and bar in the hotel and feature meeting rooms and offer catering as well. They are situated in an area that has a sports store, McDonalds, Skippers and Arbys, plus many other places within walking distance.
For the dogs, there is a large grassy area for longer walks and space to take care of business. Sadly, too many pet parents were not responsible enough to pick up after their animals. I'm always surprised by this - did you not understand what your dog is going to do when you take them out? A nice bonus would be for the hotel to provide bags for this use.
I too, was disappointed by the pool. It was closed and you could use the health club across the parking lot - but who wants to hike over there on a cold evening? And it was only open to 7pm.

Fellow dog owners!

I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay when visiting us last! Being a large breed dog owner myself I know how difficult it is to find a decent, clean hotel to stay in that is dog friendly. Thank you so much for taking the time out to leave such a detailed positive message for us that we can pass onto the staff to let them know there efforts have not gone unnoticed.

I got on line looked at all motels in Lewiston Idaho. The Red Loin looked the best,,, but the inside pool they show is not at the motel. It is next door, but on Saturday night it closes at 7:00 p.m. The rooms they show online is not the room we got. We could not watch the t.v. unless we were sitting on the bed. The room was very dark. I also asked for a quite room when I called in , and when I checked in. I got a room next to the ice and pop machines. On a better note we ate in the quite bar they have an the waitress was very nice and friendly. Dinner was grerat!

On our recent trip to Lewiston, Idaho, we booked our stay at the Red Lion Hotel. We couldn't have been more pleased. We were picked up at the airport (free shuttle) at almost 1 o'clock in the morning. We got right into our room and had a very enjoyable stay. Even their wedding banquet that they put on was a class act . On the first day, the manager made a point of finding us and asking how our stay was and if there was anything I needed. We will be going back. :-)

This hotel was the most pleasant experience in a long while. Very helpful courtisous staff. Asked about dinner and recieved 20 % off, was upgraded to a king suite when our room was not available. Clean and comportable room. They even offered to take us to the Christmas light display.
