The stay was nice, always like Red Lions, but the car had the window broken out, so did the one next to me. They came out and and vacuumed out the car, but of course won't pay for the broken window. They need to provide security for their parking lot. One part of this which is no fault of Red... More

We were on our way back from Hawaii and had a overnight stop at Seatac airport. I booked this the week before and we had to wait a bit for the shuttle from the airport but the Red Lion is just across the main airport access, so very close. Honestly it was nicer than I remembered from staying here many... More

There was a wad of hair on shower wall. thermostat was broken and stuck on HOT/High. no hospitality, ADA bathroom is not ADA, cannot reach handheld shower head. The food at the restaurant was nothing near special and service even worse.

Well the first negative was the luggage cart with a huge sticky substance covering aboout half of it, next the elevator floor wasn't very nice.
