“Nice Hotel, Great Beds”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Maybe it was the camping/cabin living that I had done for the week prior to staying here, but the beds and pillows here were awesome. It was also clean and had a nice tv. My son upchucked in the room and the staff steam cleaned it without a complaint.

Breakfast is NOT included, that's the only reason for 4 stars. Its 2014 and it's a $100+ hotel, the breakfast consisting of some scrambled eggs, bagels, muffins, etc should be included and not $5/person.

This is a nice hotel. The staff were excellent to deal with and were always friendly. Only complaint: This place DOES NOT have a continental breakfast. We were not notified of this when we first checked in, so be aware! They will charge you $5 a person and you can't take anything back to your room. However; there are tons of restaurants nearby, mostly within walking distance.

Our room was fairly clean. Found a beer cap by the bed but other than that, we had no complaints about the room.

Hotel staff is nice and outdoor pool is great! Hotel does have some upgrades, like flatscreen tv and new beds/bedding, as well as countertops. It could us new carpets and drapes, but overall very good.

I was impressed with the cleanliness, comfort, and layout of the room (a double queen.) There was a long vanity with mirror outside the bathroom. Everything in the bathroom worked well. The bed was super comfortable, there was a flat-screen TV, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot, a comfy upholstered chair, plus a good desk chair at the small table for doing computer work.
The front desk clerks were all friendly and helpful over my three-night stay, and the room stayed spotlessly clean.
The only thing that the hotel didn't have, was a complementary breakfast (there is a five-dollar charge for the full breakfast buffet), which didn't matter to me, because I was at a conference with meals provided. But I know that families who travel like having the free breakfast offerings to help keep the daily expenses lower, so they should be aware.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

I stay in Red Lions now and then and am always satisfied. This was a passing through one night stay and I was not disappointed. I booked on a travel site which was to my surprise $20 less than the hotel site (and I have a member number). As I write this it is morning and I am having coffee outside in the most pleasant shaded courtyard sitting between two bubbling streams, nice start to the day. I had made a mistake on my reservation and needed 2 beds rather than one. No issue, corrected with a smile on check in. I slept soooo well in a nice comfortable bed. Great shower pressure and decent amenities, clean and tidy. This all seems to be the general consensus of most reviewers and they are right! There's a big sign at the desk asking guests to rate them on TripAdvisor... I usually scoff at that but this hotel earned a 4 star review.

This hotel is typical of other Red Lion locations--a nice enough, comfortable hotel, with large rooms, decent furnishings, and good service. This is a fairly large hotel, with what looks to be hundreds of rooms in a complex of multiple large buildings--it seems to be the kind of place that hosts a fair number of group meetings or smaller conventions. The center grounds are very attractive, with large lawn areas and simulated creeks and waterfalls. The center grounds also include a nice, large pool.

Next to the front desk area is a bar/lounge, and apparently on Sunday nights (it was a Sunday night that we stayed), it's home to a VERY LOUD karaoke event, with a number of drunken revelers "singing" (if one can call it that) off-key karaoke at high volume levels, which according to the desk clerk usually lasts until about 1:30 a.m. Seeing (and hearing) this, we asked for a room far away from the bar, and we were accommodated--we heard absolutely none of this in our room. I would imagine that those in the main building closest to the bar were not so lucky. As a hotel that presumably accommodates guests who intend to get some sleep, this probably isn't the best venue for this sort of event.

All in all, it was a comfortable, pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the bar/lounge--they do have some loud events there some nights

Red lion is mainstay and this hotel is fine. Great service at check in, rooms are nice and the conference facilities are convenient. Not a luxury vacation resort but I didn't expect one. Good choice to stay here
