We were traveling from Yosemite to Crater Lake and decided to stay in Redding for one night. We checked in a little later, but were actually upgraded for free. The woman at the front desk had so much on her plate at the time, but was very attentive and efficient when it came to checking us in. The hotel is...

Dear Shauna S, So happy to hear your visit was a comfortable one! Our front desk does indeed get busier at times, and our staff does work hard at multi tasking efficiently. We appreciate your comments as the reviews help our team to learn how we may service our guests better each time. We hope you will choose us again...

Dear nia261, We appreciate your review, although we are disappointed to hear it was not an acceptable visit. Our goal is always to give the best customer service we can. It appears that your stay was lacking in that area. We are an older hotel, and for that we are in the process of a makeover. I hope the Front...

We had never stayed at a Red Lion Hotel before and were pleasantly surprised. Lovely full service facility. Large room with outdoor seating. The staff were all exceptional. And after traveling all day, having a great meal at their bar and grill was a bonus

My husband and I stayed one night on a drive back to Washington from California. This hotel was one of 3 hotels with 3-plus ratings available in Redding. Our king bed was average, and there wasn't a fridge, but the balcony was a nice surprise. We got drinks in the downstairs bar...prices were average. Staff was nice as well.

All of our rooms include a refrigerator and microwave. They are located below the television in a cabinet. We hope you will visit us again in the future. Thank you, Mitch

We had 2 rooms for our family and a dog. One room smelled terribly of cigarette smoking. This was designated no smoking. Computer problems backed up the line as we checked in. 40 minutes is too long to check in. I have stayed in this hotel before and had a good stay. We had other problems so I won't go...

Dear John B, Thank you for your comments. The Red Lion Hotel takes pride in our customer satisfaction, and we apologize for your less than comfortable stay. The cigarette smoke is a true disappointment, we do have signs posted and all rooms are non smoking rooms; however, there are guests who still disregard our rules. We try to enforce this,...

The dank smell of mildew. Curtains not completely attached to the rod. Stained bed sheets. Thin, threadbare towels. Dirty carpeting (what was that red stuff ground into the rug?). Cracked headboard. Décor last ‘refreshed’ sometime south of 1990. Once upon a time, a Red Lion meant a quality establishment. Apparently, those days have passed. At least in Redding, California. As...

We stopped at RL Hotel in Redding on our way to Southern CA. It was a one night stop and, although the reviews seem quite positive, we found this place particularly underwhelming. The check-in experience was terrible. It took them 20 min only to realize that they have mistakenly given our room to someone else... and once they sorted all...
