Seattle, Washington
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I overall enjoyed my stay but wished they offered free breakfast in the morning. Their restaurant Yankee Grille was horrible! The food was not well seasoned and the grilled chicken tasted over cooked and like a dirty grill. Clean your grill it effects the taste of the meat. Mash potatoes were bland and didn't taste like garlic. Prices were ridiculous

Frankly it's a dump. I stayed here after a delayed flight and where the airline put us up. The rooms had an odor, well worn would be a compliment. Now the shuttle driver was great as was the front desk, but that's as far as it goes. They have a restaurant that I knew from past trips in the area...

Thank you so much for your recent review, and the positive feedback regarding our staff. We are currently in the process of a renovation, and I do apologize for the "dated" condition of your room.

To be fair, there is a lot of potential. The front desk staff was very nice and professional, it's a great location with easy access to I-405 and I-5. The lobby looks nice, but then you walk down the hall to the old, smelly elevator and realize that the place is old and run down. Our room was very marginal,...

I stayed one night. I won't stay again. Shades missing from windows, dirty carpets in rooms. AC that isn't adjustable. Lots of traffic noise. Rooms could really use a renovation and much better cleaning The staff was very nice, polite, and accomodative though. Hotel was close to many restaurants, but too close to the highway.

I'm a high school teacher and I used this hotel for a 3 night stay for our Art Club field trip. The hotel was very clean, staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and things went very smoothly.

Would have liked more light in room. Bathroom fan very loud, but the air conditioning was very good, very quiet and efficient. It was too dim and hard to read. The bed was very, very hard, and not comfortable. Like the luggage stand, but very close to door and hard to get around.

Very nice and helpful employees, but hotel was noisy and not very clean. I'm a very light sleeper, and although the front desk did their best to place me in a quiet room, I still was not able to sleep due to the overall noise level and thin walls and doors. The hotel lobby was OK, but room was very...

I had a very pleasant experience staying at the Red Lion Renton. Their staff was very friendly, rates were good. Free breakfast buffet along with the great room rate. I'm Native American so to see most of the staff as fellow people of color was a definite plus for me. Sometimes I feel judged or prejudice when dealing with a...
