This hotel is in poor condition and if it was not for the storm we would not have stayed here. If you don’t mind a dirty room and hair on the sheets be my guest. Never again will drive home from work instead of this nasty place.

I would like to rate this hotel higher. We have stayed here many times but the parking is not secure. The front desk people will tell you they don’t have a problem but the shuttle drivers will tell you the truth and they have break in problems while leaving your car here AND

We try hard to advise our guests of the best security measures to avoid break-ins, and we are so sorry this happened to your son in law. I apologize for our team not being more concerned for your situation, and I will address this with them. I do appreciate you letting us know.

The Red Lion has seen better days. The bar/restaurant closes at 10pm weekdays and earlier on weekends! However, there is an Applebees close by, which is a lot busier! Rooms are clean and some have been redecorated, the hot tub remained open in winter but didn't look very

A bed bug on my my bed in the Renton, WA Holiday Inn
more dirt
the door had obviously been sticking badly for some time and nobody has bothered fixing it
example of how dirty the counter was
dead bug on wall, looked like it had been there a while
It’s to alert both the hotel and trip advisor that suspicious 5 star reviews have been posted. I am asking Trip advisor to look into this. When so many individuals only make one review none before or after a five star and so many people that have made multiple reviews post one star a pattern appears that indicates the reviews are not legit. This degraded the trust in the review system.

It's outside of the airport. If i remember well the pick up place is 3A. However the phone was broken there. I have used the One by 3C. It's a free phone (the number is written in the directory). Just Give them a ring and the bus 18 will be sent to pick You up

I stayed there in February 2015. There was construction work being done on the entry doors but other than that, it was clean. I also had no problems with the staff. The rooms are small. The thermostat wouldn't let me get the heat down as low as I wanted it but I opened the window and solved that problem. I would not go out of my way to stay here or even choose it as a destination but, I thought it was OK as a transient overnight spot. This is only recently a Red Lion so it will probably be a while before it fully meets their standards.

"Request something away from the elevators and try facing south. North just looks at all the rusty equipment on the ballroom roof."
"Don't stay here, they won't honor your reservation!"
"Try and find out if the renovations have been complete and/or if they can assure you of a renovated room."
"Decent room. Clean. Comfortable bed. Quiet."
"Check ahead of your stay on the quality of the pillows. They were rock hard for our stay."
