The Red Lion was a very nice stay. I had called ahead to make sure our requirements were met. Initially the desk clerk was a bit unhelpful, but once we arrived at the facility, she was quite pleasant. She was able to give us a good recommendation for a place to eat away from the facility. The lobby windows overlook... More

I really liked this hotel, it was clean! A nice size room, a comfortable bed and it was clean at a great price. The staff at the desk is courteous and good with quick check in and out.

Beautiful views, great customer service. Quiet part of town, no traffic sounds blaring you awake. Breakfast was good, breakfast hostess was a little rude, an older woman who took no nonsense from teenagers who forgot their breakfast vouchers. But other than that incident, everyone else was pleasant.

Red Lion Inns are usually quality places. Not this time. First we found the bath mat was soaking, dripping wet. Then one of three vanity mirror lights was not just burned out, but completely gone.

We returned to the Pendleton Red Lion after 20+ years. Not much has changed - including the fabulous view over the rolling wheat fields to the Blue Mountains.

The hotel is pretty average and fairly nice. It's a bit outdated and smells a bit old. Breakfast is at a charge and no room service. For the area it is a decent hotel. There are multiple options in Pendleton. The staff was friendly but the check-in process seemed to take forever!
