We got a fantastic rate for this hotel. It was a great location. Close to the main shopping on N. Division. Also close to the performance centre, within walking distance. Close to shops and restaurants. It was very clean and quiet. Staff was friendly. Will definitely stay there again. Also easy to find and easy access.

My recent stay at the Red Lion River Inn proved to be a pleasant experience. After some of the reviews, I was beginning to wonder if this was a wise choice. However, there was no smoke smell, sheets were clean, decor was good. I traveled with my dog and she was treated like royalty. Would I stay there again, you betcha.

I'm sorry but there are times when we stay in hotels that i would like my bedding washed and new sheets put on, that is sometimes why i stay at nice hotels, so someone else does the sheets and i know they are clean!!! Well we excuse me soiled the sheets and we did not make our bed so that they would come in and make the bed up with new sheets. Guess what, we came back at 9:00pm at night exhausted from a long day out and about and dirty soiled sheets! My husband said he wondered if they made the bed before we came in for the sheets looked sort of wrinkled not like they normally do when you stay in a hotel,. So beware, if you stay here ask them if they changed the sheets!!!!!

I was here for a company training. The location of the hotel was good. For the price of the room I thought it should have been cleaner. I found hair and other dirt that was not mine. It also had a slight musty odor. The first night was sleepless. They had a big group who was very loud and disruptive through out the night. I did not complain about the not so clean room, but I did address the noise issue the next morning. The staff at the front desk were apologetic and credited the price of the room by $25 for that night. They said it was not the first complaint about that group and said if I had any further noise issues the next night to please call the front desk and security would handle it and they would move me to another room if necessary. Great service! The second night was alot quieter and I slept great. When I checked out the staff asked how my second night went.

Our family of 5 stayed at this hotel for one night. It is outdated, and dirty. After checking in, and locating our room, I was upset at how dirty our room was. The bathroom was filthy, with dirt and hair piled up in the corners. The tub looked filthy and was stained. In the room, there was dust around the perimeter of the carpet, and dirt and dust piled up in the corners. My infant son dropped his pacifier and it rolled under the bed. When I bent down to retrieve it, I found his pacifier, a film of dust, and trash (yes, trash!) under the bed. The carpet was filthy, as evidenced by the grime that my son's socks had on them after crawling around on the floor. Unfortunately, the hotel is old and in need of a thorough cleaning and remodel. I woudln't stay again.

On the upside, the staff was friendly and honest. After checking out, I received a call. The staff member stated that they had found a small wallet of mine. It contained grocery and store savings cards, and I didn't realize I had left it. They called me to let me know, then mailed it to my home. I really appreciated their honesty and friendliness.
