My husband and I came to Redding for a school at Bethel Church. This was a very reasonably priced Hotel and our room was clean and comfortable.

When we checked in at the red lion Redding location we were beyond pleased by the two ladies at the front desk Christine and Cecilia. We were a bit disappointed in our room location ( we wanted a room by the pool) but they fixed everything up, no fuss at all. They were very friendly and patient with us😊

Of our 192 different room, there are always certain ones that become peoples favorites. Depending on our occupancy we can most often accommodate your requests. Glad we could on... More

I recently visited Redding on a photographic vacation. My goal was to capture the Sundial Bridge, Mount Shasta, and McCloud Falls via digital camera. I found this hotel comfortable, welcoming and very accommodating. If you don't want to eat out you can order from your room to the bar and grill and pick up your food. A really nice breakfast...

Room was decent and came with a nice small outside balcony to enjoy coffee/ reading. Shower was really noisy and i couldn't get pipes to stop groaning.

We chose Red Lion Hotel after reading the TripAdvisor reviews for other hotels. The location is GREAT! Close to Hwy 44 and I-5. Close to shopping and restaurants. Area appears safe too.

We're so glad you had a comfortable stay. I advised the housekeeping crew of their "missing the mark" on the waste basket. This should not happen again. Our location is one of the best in town, we're so centrally located and there is something for everyone within just minutes. Many things are within walking distance of the hotel. I'm sure... More

Thanks for the four out of five rating. We do have good sized, clean and comfy rooms. Our pool is the largest hotel pool in the area, though not heated it is used almost year round with someone wanting to get a few laps in.

This is a hotel to avoid at all costs! It is located in an area known for "tweakers". The guests are given a paper warning of vehicle break-ins and vandalism.
