My girlfriend and I stayed here for two days and it was wonderful! Heather at the front desk was extreamly nice and welcoming to us right when we walked in. They have a nice pool and we were able to keep our little dog with us. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was nice.

my car broke down driving back from portland to Vancouver. The Ladies at the front Desk (especially Raquel) were able to help me get my car fixed. Even small things, like calling a taxi for me so i can get food. All together they are a very accommodating hotel

I have been staying at Red Lions chains for awhile now. I have been very pleased with the service and attentiveness. Today I had breakfast, (which I normally don't do) and I was very attended to.
