I have stayed in many hotels but never one with such uncaring, terrible service...(Thank God I only had to deal with them during checkin and check-out. The rooms were extremely hot...at one time our room was 95!!!!

I love the new airline crew check in desk. It's nice to get in and get right to the room without having to wait. The beds are very comfortable and it's easy to get a good rest here. It's apparent that they are really making an effort to improve the hotel.

Did not have hot water the first day. Stayed for 4 nights and never was provided after the first day with coffee, creamer, shampoo, conditioner etc. Registration desk needs more people with an actual counter, not just a table. Maybe a sign that reads "Registration" might help.

For the price is sucked and we checked in 6pm 3 hours after check in time just to discover our room was never cleaned. Blankets and pillow were piled up and they promised to accomadate us before we arrived for an earlier check in time because we we're Arriving at 6am from a 10 hours drive

Not one nice thing to say about this property. From check in, to questions, to the bar, to check out it was terrible. Do not ever consider staying at this property. Do not ever consider staying at any Red Lion Hotels.

Paper walls! People next door were so loud! We could hear every word, even the ones in "normal tones". Sounded like 10+ people next door. Called font desk 230 am. They said they would quiet them down...didnt happen! So much for sleep at a hotel. Also no fan in bathroom, no windows to open, very stuffy.

I travel for a living, I stay in a few different hotels a week across the country. This is by far one of my favorites.

If you are wanting a friendly staff, comfortable bed, room and shower, then this is not the place for you. I can see they are in the process of renovating the entire hotel which is nice but our room was so uncomfortably hot & our shower was warm at best. The staff was very unconcerned with our discomfort & ultimately...

Check in/out friendly. Lobby is being renovated, there's a lounge/restaurant on site. No free breakfast with the rate I got. Good that there are doors at the back by the parking lot, so you don't have to go all the way around to the main door. Ample parking on site, no need for reservation, location is good. Room wall is...
