“Clean, comfortable, large room for great price!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We really enjoyed staying here so much that we joined the club and will be staying again tonight at another Red Lion location near the airport. The room is very clean with great shower. Yes the hotel isn't brand new but I didn't smell anything but fresh smells. Warming fireplace greets you in the front desk area with large comfortable chairs. Sports bar looked nice with several large TV's. we didn't have time to go there. Best of all, staff was very friendly and helpful. I really appreciated their hospitality. My husband will definitely stay here again on business when he comes in town.

Room Tip: We stayed in double queen and it was fine. Kings were all sold out.

All said it's okay... I think it was updated in 1977. Comfortable beds that still have the old polyester bed spread that you don't want to touch. Stains on the furniture and carpet and a funky smell in the rooms. There is one outlet that is not near the bed and a TV I would have loved to have in 1987. The mattress in new and the sheets are clean... Stay away from the restaurant, unless you like bad service and less than appetizing food.

Stayed here in preparation for a job interview. It was clean and comfortable. Our reservation was for one night although we were staying in the Portland OR area for a couple more. We decided to move because of location and prefer a slightly newer hotel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Full breakfast bar was well stocked and fresh.

I stayed at this hotel last week. It was a very pleasant experience. The price was good. The staff were very helpful. My friends and I booked 3 rooms. We had teenagers with us and they thoroughly enjoyed the pool. No complaints. Would recommend it...

Spacious and large rooms with 2 queen beds.. I was impressed at its size. We loved it and it more than well accommodated our family of 5! It was very clean also. I will look to live in this chain as a great option in future!. It is right off the freeway and is well located.

It was just slightly difficult to find in the hard, we weren't sure which exist was correct. We saw the sign from a mile away though. And by the looks of how big it was, it was VERY impressive.

The hotel definitely needs a major update. It's quite tacky and there's a type of old smell that I just can't put my hands around.

We couldn't find any other hotels so we had to stay here. The staff made it worth while, at least the front desk staff did. They were very friendly and it was very nice to see people that really like their jobs.

Breakfast was well, interesting. It was a buffet but don't be fooled. Make sure you wake up early for breakfast. It was very disappointing that our rate of staying at the hotel included the breakfast, yet we went an hour before they stopped serving and they barely had anything. We asked when they would bring fruit and one lady said soon and another man said they don't get produced shipped on Sundays so whatever was left was what we got -- nothing, that was.

If they have any specials and we are around there, we will probably stay there again.. it's not bad, but don't expect too much.

This hotel is great for a family stop. The outdoor pool is very well maintained with a hot tub, a large regular pool, and even a toddler pool. There is food and drink service at poolside. The staff at this hotel are friendly and engaging. The decor is a bit outdated and worn, but the facilities and service are excellent.
