My teenage son and I recently stayed at the Red Lion after looking for an affordable hotel with a nice outdoor pool to escape to while visiting relatives. I hadn't been to this hotel in almost 30 years -- when it was the "Town Plaza", and was skeptical about whether or not it would be up to snuff. We stopped by and looked around before booking a room and were pleasantly surprised.
While the exterior of the buildings give the hotels age away, we found the room to be as nice and as clean as any new hotel. We stayed in the "newer" building -- the Corporate House" , overlooking the beautiful pool area. The carpet, bathroom, bedding and decor all looked brand new.
The sparkling pool with a 9' deep end, new lounge chairs on the large patio, and huge hanging baskets of flowers made the pool area a highlight for us.
Breakfast buffet was included with our room packages and had eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and pancakes. Not gourmet fare, but much better than the continental breakfast many serve, and as good as most expanded buffets.
You wouldn't want to expect a new, luxury hotel, but for the great rate we got ($89), this older hotel more than met our expectations and made for a great getaway.
