“Pleasant Place”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

All I did was sleep here but the bed had a nice mattress topper and I slept well. The room was clean. I liked the sheets. The staff were as good as it gets. There isn't much within walking distance of this hotel, but that's fine you'll have a car anyway. There are fun pubs downtown which is very close...about 7 minutes I think. I'd stay here again.

Love the free, live jazz on the weekends here. The happy hour deals are amazing here, too, along with the view...have no strong opinions to share about the lodging here.

Stayed for a weekend convention. Good facilities - spacious, cooperative staff. Room was only average - thin walls and ceilings make for a bit noisy stay (ask for a top floor room to eliminate stomping from guest upstairs). My room did not have a microwave or fridge but both were cheerfully supplied upon request. Location is okay, easy access to the interstate but not any restaurants within easy walking distance that I discovered so if you don't have a car suggest taxi into town.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room to reduce noise from upstairs stompers.

We stayed at the Red Lion inn in Olympia, WA for 3 nights while driving the I-5 corridor looking at area universities. The hotel was average, but the staff were nice, and the breakfast buffet was hot and fresh. Breakfast was included in the "Evergreeen State College" rate, and decent.

The Red Lion has everything I need in a hotel...security, cleanliness, friendly employees, a BAR & restaurant...all at a reasonable price & in a beautiful, serene setting. It's a short walk to Capitol Lake, a great area for walking/jogging. The bar is fantastic with attentive but not intrusive staff & a really good happy hour. This was my 4th stay at this Red Lion & honestly would not want to stay anywhere else in Oly.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have balconies, which is a nice touch.

This place is amazing. The hotel setting is so peaceful. Check in and out was without issues. The rooms were clean. The beds were perfect. The bar was great, even had a happy hour. The breakfast the next day cost $7.95 each, but was worth it. The food was good, and the coffee was hot. I would have loved to stay another night. Will return

We are dog owners. We take our dogs with us always. It has been difficult to find a hotel that was not in the highest price range. The Hilton properties all take dogs, as does the Weston in down town Seattle. These places are in the $250-$450 a night. It's great to find the Red Lion properties, as they are in a mid price range. The have room service, and great place to take your dogs out to do their business. The food is very nice, as are the rooms. A very good deal for all pet owners. If you join the R&R club, free, your pet are no extra charge. We have stayed at red lion properties 3 time this year so far.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side of the hotel are facing Capital lake with balcony's very good view.
