“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed two nights and had a great stay. We had a large family group and we were in and out throughout our stay. Whenever we needed anything they were right there.

All services and facilities were good. Tile in bath was OK but needs some maintenance. Billing format was confusing; I suggest they separate clearly the restaurant and Lounge charges from the room charges.

So the hotel by itself was fine but I second everybody who mentioned 'noisy'...the restaurant was such a disappointment!! It is expensive compared to the quality of service...so there is no host at the host's table ever!! They ask you to ring the bell which you will have to and then they (what seems like deliberate) ignore you..quality of food was fine..I think they have good chefs but my hostesses were such disappointments..interestingly, I was not offered coffee a second time during breakfast or dinner..but I did notice them offering coffee to others...my hostess made me carry my menu while she prepared my table for dinner...well she forgot to place silverware...of course the meal came in late.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we appreciate all guest feedback and take it seriously. I wanted to apologize again for your expectations not being met in our restaurant, and I will definitely pass along this information so our staff can be made aware that this is not acceptable guest service. We do pride ourselves on making sure our guests are happy and comfortable, and I do hope you give us a second chance to show you that!

Best,

It's dated, but the staff were welcoming. The walls/ceiling are INCREDIBLY thin as I could here my neighbor on his 5am call and the person above me pacing constantly. The bed was comfy, but I had a little trouble sleeping due to the pacing overhead. There is also a must of stuffiness that accompanies an older hotel.

We are a seasoned couple, with some days to spend at the Seattle area. After some research we decided the brand becouse we had experienced it before and the location becouse it appeared nice, nearby spots of interest and far away fro downtown Seattle. We hit the Hotel, after a 17 hour plane trip and a drive from SEATAC. We really liked it. We rested, we enjoyed and did some tourism. Exelent!

We returned to the Red Lion Olympia on a return Trip having had a good experience the first time. However we had a party type couple next door this time and the noise coming through the connecting doors ruined our stay. Also the door kept slamming shut at all hours. Poor design of rooms gave us a sleep deprived stay. Nice place if you are a really good sleeper.

We stopped on route to Bend Oregon and found it as it was easy access from the I-5. Friendly service, nice rooms that were quiet. Received a discount on the room (when asked) but needed it explained twice to understand the options!
