I chose this hotel because of the brand name due to the fact that we were traveling with our dog for the first time in eight years and I figured I could count on the Red Lion to have an acceptable pet room. I am a hotel snob and cannot stay in a dirty rundown room.
I booked on-line with the hotel website for a premium view, balcony and king bed for $189 plus taxes. The pet fee was an additional $15. Parking is free.
Upon check-in, I was given the choice of first or second floor, with the second floor having a better view. The hotel made no mention of there being no elevator, but having read the reviews on this site, I asked my husband if he would want to carry our heavy suitcase up the stairs and he said he would so I accepted the second floor. There is a ramp at the far end of the hotel, but that only gets you from the parking lot to the first floor rooms. I found no ramp to get from the first to the second floor.
I found room 254 to be very clean, nice decor and had no pet odors. It was very spacious. Hidden inside the armoire, there was a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. I especially liked the bathroom was very large, updated decor and had a full vanity inside. There was also a smaller sink and vanity outside the bathroom so my husband and I could get ready in the morning at the same time. The shower head was very large but barely had water trickling out. I discovered by turning the large saucer shaped shower head, that it would change the spray pattern.
We did not eat in the attached restaurant, but we ordered room service for breakfast and it was very good, especially the crispy hashbrowns. Two plastic chairs were provided on the deck, so we enjoyed the great view while having breakfast. I also brought along a loaf of bread to toss to the seagulls from our deck.
