While participating in the Harbor Days event in Olympia, we stayed at the Red Lion for four nights. This was our first time there and we were very happy with the choice. The hotel is set in the trees and is very quiet and peaceful. It was only an enjoyable 5 minute drive from the hotel to the event at Columbia and State Sts. via a road that bordered a lovely lake.
Upon entering the lobby to check in, we were warmly greeted and our check-in was fast and efficient. It was so nice coming back to our room after a long day and finding a neat, clean and re-stocked room. Very much appreciated and we never saw any sign of maid service.
On our first evening we enjoyed sitting in the lounge looking out on the lake, trees, a beautifully manicured lawn, pool, gazebo, etc. So relaxing!! And, because we were there before 7 pm, we had half price appetizers and reduced cost drinks! :-)
The beds are very comfortable, the bed linens soft and plenty of towels. The room was very clean, spacious with a good TV, and a microwave and mini refrigerator, which we had requested. And, the best part was, the A/C worked very well and provided a "white noise" effect! :-)
Check out was just as efficient and check-in and the desk clerk seemed genuinely interested in the reason for our visit and in how we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back!!
