Reviewed yesterday NEW

Recently we had a relative depart by train from Spokane and we chose this hotel to stay in because of its proximity to the terminal. The hotel was clean without any weird smells sometimes associated with venues on the water. The Front Desk was problem-free and the rooms were well-appointed and airy on the riverside. The riverfront walking experience was...

We booked this hotel in error, we wanted the sister hotel Red Lion at the Park. After being assured by the front desk that we wouldn't be charged we were. When calling to dispute the charge I was told I hadn't been charged. What a pain.

Very nice friendly staff and moderately ok facilities, but that is about all. This poor place, at least the section where we stayed (building II) is very old and run down. Though not “dirty”, not clean either. Everything could use a good vacuuming, and tho I confess I am picky about my floors, I don’t have those expectations in a...

Thank you for your review. I have to admit that after reading the details of your recent experience I was left disappointed and a bit frustrated. I hope that when you were here that you reached out to a front office agent and they were able to discuss your concerns and offer a resolution. We are an older hotel but...

The customer service and accommodation of requests was friendly and graciously given by the staff of Red Lion River Inn. The location is convenient for medical appointments and when a driver is required a shuttle is available. This hotel is very accommodating to a guest's need.

We stayed just one night and it was very pleasant... it was end of summer so were able to enjoy the patio by the river and pretty good food, and some lovely entertainment. The room was a wee but tired but fit the bill for the price. Front desk staff were very efficient and friendly ... I forgot my phone...

A nice hotel, good location, good price. Close to downtown Spokane. Quiet hotel. I had a room on the ground level, facing the tennis courts. I arrived early, so was not surprised when my room was not ready, however the hotel staff offered to call me once it was, which I thought I was very nice. I did order room...

I recently stayed here for business and my room was broken into. Not much of value was stolen. When "Rachel Andrade" front desk Manger was made aware of what had happened she disregarded the situation and said there was nothing she could help me with.

We stayed here, and reviewed the hotel, in February; everything stated in that review is still true. A couple added comments: --The price was significantly higher this time, probably due to the event we were attending at Gonzaga. --Check-in with Torrie was a breeze, and she was very friendly. --Room service delivered by Kate was also excellent. Absolutely no complaints,...
