This is the second time we have stayed at this Red Lion.
The positives: Our double queen premium room was huge! Even the bathroom was large with spacious counter space. The furnishings and decorations were very tasteful and modern. Last time we stayed here at the end of our stay we discovered someone else's food under the bed. This time there was a little sign under the beds that said "yes, we checked here". I thought that was a nice touch. The breakfast was great and the children enjoyed the pool. The closest hotel to Tom 'O Shanter ball fields which was super convenient. The check in staff was pleasant and we were asked several times (while waiting) if we needed anything which was nice.
The negatives: We checked in at 5pm and our room wasn't ready.The hallway has a very unpleasant odor to it (I remember the same odor from last year) almost like rotten garbage although my husband thought it smelled like bad fish. The bathroom had long wet hair in a clump on the floor, gross! The light switches were visibly dirty as well as the bathroom door. I would never take a bath, or bathe my children in the bathtub because it didn't look clean. The sheets didn't stay on the beds. I know these are little things but I feel like this hotel could do a better job cleaning the rooms.
Overall you get more than you pay for here...huge room, great breakfast, location. However, I would be willing to pay for more a cleaner room.
