I was in town for the Missoula Marathon. I was going to stay at the Courtyard but due to my travel budget I was put at the Red Lion. Now I must admit I at times can be a hotel snob but good customer service and make most grey clouds blue. The front desk staff were great! Very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. I arrived to the hotel around noon but my room wasn't available which was okay because checkin is not until 3pm so I wasn't thrown back. As a plus for the hotel there is a Safeway grocery store right next store which I was able to go to to kill some time. Paul at the front desk even offered to call my cell once my room was ready. Just to let you know, the lobby is small and the upstairs bistro style dining area is, lets say "cozy". They held my luggage and I was off to see the town. The heart of downtown is less than a mile away. The hotel is also right next to St. Patrick hospital which can be great if traveling with people who may have medical needs.
One thing that I must mention is there is not an elevator so you will need to use the stairs. The staff is helpful but make a note to self that you will be moving luggage up and down stairs so you may want to request being on the bottom floor. The hotel is pet-friendly but I did not detect pet smell at all. The room was clean but skittle more attention could go toward cleaning the bathroom vents. Another 2-3 minutes and all the dust would have been removed but the effort was noticed. Even as I am typing this review I can't help but keep saying how nice and helpful the staff was. If I find myself in Missoula again I would definitely stay there. Also did I mention Caras park and the carousel are within a mile radius. If you are traveling for business. There is a UPS and a bank within walking distance, about half a mile. Thanks again to the staff for giving me a new and different perspective of the Red Lion.
