“Stay away from the back construction site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Get a room away from the rear of the complex (large sprawling 6 buildings site for the hotel) due to the construction. The room is clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom showed some age but that is to be expected. I had the service guy up to the room 3 times due to the card keys not working. It turned out that the way to pull the card key out of the slot is important - you have to bend the card slightly upwards in order to unlock. Possibly due to the location of the reader not quite installed properly. Once I got the hang of it, the door opens without issue. Also there is no elevator in the entire complex. If you need elevator access, go somewhere else. Otherwise, the location is great. Good value.

Room Tip: avoid the back buildings

Wonderful hotel for a holiday.
Comfy beds, easy check in and out, kids loved having two pools to choose from, easy to locate, close to downtown and shopping in Spokane. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to get away from it all. Beautiful river valley made an 18 hour trip seem peaceful. Thank you for everything the staff was great!

I live at the Red Lion River Inn Spokane three nights a week, every week for my job. It is a very clean well run hotel right on the Spokane river. the restaurant is right on the water with equal amounts of outside and inside seating. the hotels operates six shuttles that they share with this property and another one right across the street. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a shuttle, and the drivers are all very knowledgeable about the city and can offer great advice on different restaurants and places to go.

A sprawling property on the banks of the Spokane River, just over the bridge from downtown. Six buildings, a tennis court, a paito for dinner and drinks. Nice place, reasonable rates, and very busy with locals, travellers, and the average working man.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view, as this will also give you a nice sunrise on a summer's day.

My wife and I stayed for 3 days at this place during a business convention. It was a comfortable place and was fairly inexpensive. The food selection for breakfast was lackluster at best, but for the cost of the room it's tough to complain. There are other places in Spokane to eat.

The hotel is a bit worn and needs some TLC, but the location is great, the river view we had was lovely. That said, the room felt clean. All of the staff we interacted with were wonderful. It would score a 5 if the hall carpets were cleaner and furniture was in better condition. The desk chair was uncomfortable.

The Red Lion River Inn borders the campus of Gonzaga on the scenic Centennial Trail. The staff is wonderful. The design is somewhat dated and the common carpets worn. Small matter--I highly recommend.
