I believe this hotel was the old Red Lion. The hotel was older but nice. It's not up to the Crowne Plaza standards though. The hotel staff was nice. The only issue we had was in the Islands Restaurant. My sister ordered the tasteless, warmed up breakfast buffet (that was prepared three hours before) and was $15. She said it was one star out of five. She has had better free continental breakfasts in other hotels. I ordered from the menu, but had to ask for our waiter twice and he still never showed up! The nice hostess (Michelle) ended taking my order and serving me. I also had to repeatedly request (decaf) coffee refills and the waiter still never showed up. The hostess again had to step in to serve me. Not sure what is going on in the restaurant.
