It's a cheaper hotel for a reason.. You get what you pay for. Some things to consider before staying... Older. Smelly halls. Mold in the bathroom. No coffee in room. Horrible internet. Good beds. Drafty.

Have stayed here before and it's a decent value for the money. The place needed a reno and it's going on now. Lots of painting, carpet replacement etc going on and will be until the fall. Staff friendly and the rooms are adequately furnished. Breakfast offerings were surprisingly good. Interested to see what the reno does for the pricing but...

The room door got stuck and jammed. Toilet ran all night even if it was not used. There was no shower curtain in the bathroom, the tub drain in bad shape. Alarm went off in the room at 5:00 am. The carpet was dirty and stained. Not what expected st a red lion.

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times. Added lighting in the parking lot gave a better sense of security.Hopefully the renovation will lead to renewed and refreshed rooms. Issues with my room were addressed promptly by the staff and management after my stay - probably why I would consider staying here again.
