That is why we went to begin with. If you want a 5 star Red Lion Inn experience, go to Red Lion Inn. This place with its unique history, is the reason we chose to stay there. Sure, some of the rooms are small, but get real, it was set up for the Jesuit priests, and they obviously needed very little in the way of extravagant amenities, and large rooms. It was a boarding house for them so to speak. Our room was clean, the bed not too bad, the bathroom clean and the staff very friendly to us. We had an excellent view of Port Townsend and the bay. We got the New years package and really enjoyed our stay. The food, raises a question. The prime rib was excellent I heard. I had the crab stuffed prawns which left a lot to be desired. The risotto was way to saffron heavy, and the prawns, come on, I know frozen shrimp when I taste them. If the chef was to taste everything before he sent it out, it may have been different. The Ice wine was excellent. The entertainment was a bit less than expected. The jazz group was a bit too underwhelming, as a lot of people did not stick around till midnight. Should have had someone more upbeat, with music you could dance to. Could not help but yawn before the new year even rolled around. Not saying the music was bad, just not right for those who wanted to hoot and holler and bring in the new year. Call it excellent dinner music. The owner was very polite and helped his staff in the dining room, and things went rather smoothly. I would give it an easy 3 1/2 to 4 stars. Just need to get the food stepped up a bit. The owner should have Gordon Ramsey of Hells Kitchen fame come in an tool with the menu if the food was better we would make it a yearly stop for sure. We will go back again.
