“Great place to spend a night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

I have stayed here for business for years. This time I was able to bring the family and experience all this hotel has to offer. You will not find a better bed or mattress for a good nights sleep anywhere. The rooms are nice and clean, ours had a view of the pool and patio, which was a nice bonus. The outside pool and waterslide is amazing, inside pool is dark and unattractive. The workout center is well equipped and perfect for a short workout. Business center is really nothing but a couple of computers next to the barista. This isn't a chain hotel on the side of the highway so don't expect a free continental breakfast and microwaved cookies at the desk. There is a full restaurant and bar to use. We skipped eating at the hotel and walked across the park (don't miss this) where there are numerous choices there.

Only complaint is our check-in took 25 minutes because of a huge line. There was an Amway meeting and another conference just getting out when we arrived. That stunk but it was nobody's fault.

Room Tip: Try not to stay on floor #1. Rooms are older and darker as it is one level below ground.

We stayed one night with our dog in a tower premium room. The room was very nice and the beds were clean and comfortable. The hotel location can't be beat. I was underwhelmed by the outdoor pool that appears outstanding in the website photos but was crowded, with not enough seating nor towels. We purchased the package with the breakfast and parking. In the morning (a Monday), we went down for breakfast at 9:00 am and found ourselves with a 30 minute wait along with about 40 other people, for a buffet that was mediocre. Two of us ordered off the menu with much better food. I may stay again if the price was good versus the many other nearby alternatives.

Room Tip: Some of the tower rooms face west. I think those would have a good view of the park and waterfall.

2 adults and 2 kids (6, and 8) approx $300 for 2 nights included parking and buffet breakfast.

outdoor pool was nice, not enough shade though. and TOO MANY CHAIR HOGS. people would put their [--] on a lounger and leave (to reserve it) and come back hours later. that was [--]. hotel staff needs to better manage the chairs and loungers. pool is okay for small kids (the water slide part is about 9-10' deep)

hotel was clean, rooms where a bit small, nice tv's, VERY friendly staff

We stayed in this hotel for a couple days and had a great time. The staff is excellent - whether at the front desk, restaurant, cleaning crew or the drivers - they're all great! Service was pretty quick and the accommodations very comfortable. We absolutely loved the downtown location, since it was just a couple of minutes walk to everything. All in all we had quick complementary airport pickup, wonderful service and quick check in and a smooth stay. The only downside was the very monotonous buffet breakfast that is complementary depending on your room.

This was an ok experience, although our previous stay at another Red Lion was much better in terms of service. The pool and water slide was great for the kids. But we booked in based on the availability of a certain type of room, that would have included breakfast for half our family, and after booking we we told it was not available, so we ended up with two rooms at almost twice the price, with breakfast not included for anyone. I was confused as too who was actually booking my room, as someone was in training, and there was simply a lack of good and clear communication.

I am used to a really soft bed, so I found the bed too stiff. I was really disappointed that they did not offer even a continental breakfast, just because we were travelling on such a tight budget :(

HOWEVER, the service was absolutely amazing!! I have never been treated better at any hotel :)

The excellent customer service made this hotel worth every penny!!

It was our first time staying at the Red Lion , and first impressions are everything!
This hotel would have received a better review from us had they not made us wait 20 minutes for our room to be done, upon checking in. You would think in a hotel of that size you could have accommodated us and not make us wait.

It was clean & quiet. Good value. Not great on customer service.
