The worst customer service, quality of room, and overall stay! I got charged for an extra night that I did not stay. I spent two days speaking with different employees who assured me that the issue was resolved. Yet, I still got charged! The hotel was in horrible conditions! I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE LIKE THIS ONE!!!!!!

Our car club just spent the weekend at the hotel. There is lots of parking at this property. We found staff to be friendly and helpful. The grounds and building are clean. The room we had was in very good condition and also clean. The bathroom was up to date and clean. Everything (TV, coffee machine, lights, blow dryer etc.)...

I usually don't stay here from past experiences with this location and the Kennewick location. They were probably prime hotels in their day (1960's). This stay was OK for a single night. I was on ground floor in the corporate wing. The sliding glass door out to the parking g lot was a little sketchy for me. The bed was....

I have stayed there annually for about a decade, then my travels did not take me there for awhile. The place has 2 pools, and is a pretty nice place overall. Close to the Interstate, attractions, and downtown. In the past I got the "Presidential" room as an upgrade! It was basically three normal room made into one. Dining room,...

We stayed here recently for a soccer tournament. The place was okay, but nowhere near the quality of other red lion properties. It's alright for a night or two if you won't be spending much time at the hotel, but the entire property is run down and tired. The rooms are small and very cramped.

Ned, Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry you felt your rooms was a little tight. We have rooms in other areas of the hotel that are a little larger. If your soccer team returns in the future please give me a ring. I'd be happy to get you into one of those rooms. Thanks again!

This place seems to have an unfair rap in some recent reviews. It is clean, has comfortable beds, nice breakfasts, nice swimming pool and a pleasant check in experience. We stayed here with a bunch of other Rotarians and got an excellent price. All in all we were very satisfied and were very pleased with the experience. It is always...

Room was spotlessly clean. Bed very comfortable and no outside noise intruded into the room. Traveled here for business. Only negatives were: 1.) The front desk staff had a hard time locating our reservations when checking in; they didn't seem very helpful or interested. Only when we produced our confirmation numbers did they magically find our names. 2.) Hotel has...

Hotel in town next to the convention center. Very nice staff and accommodations though the king size bed was a little too soft. The location is great and convenient to restaraunts and the greenway trail. We would stay again.

The hotel was much better than I expected. The hotel has experienced a substantial upgrade and it looks great. The bed was very comfortable and the WiFi Internet worked great. Normally I am not kind to hotels that do not offer a free breakfast but this hotel balanced it well by offering a very good breakfast buffet for a $5.95...

We had a fairly decent stay at this location. The hotel is a bit older (on the outside) but staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and recently remodeled. The location is right off the highway (but not close enough to hear highway noise) close to restaurants, the Sun Dome and in a nice part of town. My only complaint...
