“five star stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

the staff are very nice. Rooms are warm, stylish and welcoming. The shower heads are too hig for short people to reach and adjust. The beds are not very comfortable, but for a short stay are toleriable. The breakfast was okay.
Nice to have a hotel that looks like a five star hotel, just not at the five star price. I will stay here again for sure.

In this case you get what you pay for and perhaps a bit more. The bed was comfortable, and it is a convenient quiet location. The only real issue i had is how cheap all the fixtures and finishes are, and the lack of thoughtfulness to layout and design in our room. We were upgraded to a "premium" room, which includes a small sofa. The medium size tv is situated off center of the sofa and substantially right of the bed, making watching a show less than convenient. The shower water pressure is a joke.
Housekeeping was good, but some jerk wiped a booger on the headboard and the maid did not catch it. It wonder if that person would do that at their house??? (this probably says more about the clientele than the hotel!)
Breakfast was decent, and the scrambled eggs were fresh and tasty.
The staff seem to carry the day here, as they are very friendly and accommodating.
Overall this a great place for the money. It is roughly $30-40 less per night than the #1 hotel in town, and that savings will go a good ways to buying dinner.
I may choose to stay at a nicer place next time, but I would not hesitate to stay here if I did not have another choice.

I travel about 12 times a year for business and pleasure. I've stayed in quite a few hotels, motels and cabins and the sevice that I recieved at this hotel was the best. Genny at the front desk was extremely helpful. The hotel was packed and Genny made sure that everything was taken care of. Sonia the front dask manager was very helpful with a billing problem that came up. The room was a good sized, quiet and dark (when the curtains were drawn). The bed was very comfortable and I like the fact that someone was thinking ahead and actually mounted the shower head high enough so there was no bending over to take a shower. When I go back to stay in Kennewick, I will stay here again.

Great hotel. We had a spacious well appointed room. In the evening we went to the lobby fireplace for a glass of wine and ordered food from the lobby bistro. Great food and we were allowed to bring our own wine.

This is a very nice hotel tucked away in a very quite neiborhood near some great places to eat. The other Red Lions in the area are HUGE, with multiple restraunts, but are old. This place that is newly aquited by Red Lion is VERY new and has great beds, with updated flat screen TV's and good internet. None of which can be found at the other Red Lions.

Room Tip: Book on the highest floor possible.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel to other people. There was a convention and so we got upgraded into an apartment room. The staff was also very helpful in suggesting a good restaurant...she even wrote out exact directions for us.

This hotel was convenient for my stay in Kennewick, but I would probably have chosen another if this hotel wasn't required for my stay by the hosting hockey association. The room was clean, but the bed and hide-a-bed were not comfortable and the pillows were flat. My husband and son chose to sleep on the floor the 2nd night there. Breakfast was ok - a typical continental, but the waffle maker didn't work right. Waffles were either raw or the timer never went off and they were over done.
