“Great location in Spokane”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The hotel is conveniently located next to the Gonzaga Univ campus and a short 5 minute walk from the center of downtown Spokane and Riverfront Park. The Spokane river runs just in front of the hotel and has easy access to the Centennial Trail, a paved walking, running and biking path that runs on both sides of the river. The hotel is clean and comfortable, with spacious rooms. Tennis courts, exercise room, basketball court, two pools. In the afternoon and evening you can enjoy Ripples Lounge and Grill. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Dear Max,

It is so great to hear how much you enjoyed your time with us! We understand how fantastic the convenience of both Gonzaga campus and the downtown paths/park can be. We are even more excited that our staff were able to provide you with excellent service and assistance, and look forward to doing it again sometime soon!

We have stayed here twice before on an annual basis. I have found that the property is starting to show some need for upgrading (carpeting appears to be soiled but likely needs replacement). The sliding door security bar was in need of repair and the grounds around the pool act. are in desperate need of attention. The staff are very friendly, and helpful. We will come again and hope to see things a little improved.

Staying at this hotel has been wonderful. From the friendly and helpful staff, to the great food and inviting dining experience, not to mention the very clean and beautiful rooms. I have definitely enjoyed my stay here and look forward to coming back. If you are in Spokane and looking for a hotel to stay at, look no further...the red lion river inn in Spokane Washington is by far the number one choice!

I was impressed by how much the staff cared. The room was great, I'm not sure that it could have been any better. The restaurant served great food and the view was amazing. Definately plan on returning.

I always stay at this hotel because it is very clean, comfortable beds and rooms. I like the ground floor rooms which open onto the gardens and easy access to the riverside walk. It is also a very pleasant, short walk into town.

I wish I would have had a pedometer. I honestly think I walked about a quarter mile through the halls on the way to the lobby/restaurant. I appreciate the exercise, but be warned if you have small children or mobility issues. It's a typical, somewhat dated, dimly lit Red Lion. The staff is all very nice, very helpful. The breakfast leaves something to be desired, compared with other Red Lions we have stayed at. In all, it's not bad, we were there for a baseball tournament. The location on the river is lovely, but I was too busy trying to find my way out of the maze of hallways to get out there. The staff is great, they get 5 stars, the facility, 2 stars.

Dear guest,

We are so sorry to hear that you had difficulties with the length of our hallways and that the breakfast was not quite satisfactory. We try to keep people who let us know they have mobility issues as close to the front desk as possible, and should location be a specific need we try to accommodate that to whatever specifics the guest needs. We appreciate you letting us know that we can improve our breakfast and are very happy that you found our staff helpful!

So we had very little interaction with the hotel, we book here hoping to use the pool, but it was closed because of weather.

Room was fine, bed was fine, amenities were ok... bathroom was halfway updated, new counter tops but old wallpaper that didn't match.

It is pricey for a hotel that isn't really any better than across the street, and they give you breakfast.

Location was nice, but we didn't book here to walk next to the water. If you have a car its close to downtown that you can drive anywhere. If your going to the convention center its an easy pleasant walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: At the end of the hotel you can see the water from the room.

Green Features: Doesn't matter to me...I don't stay at a hotel based on its envio practices. I want clean, fresh and washed every day.
