Great location and great staff! JIMMY, TONI and DANIELLE were so friendly and helpful! You are just a short walk to great restaurants and shopping. Beds were comfortable as well! Had these great charging stations next to the bed!

settled for ground floor...because the upper floors were booked??? there was no one in the parking lot!?? Staff was very nice, breakfast was mediocre~ the guy next door shut his bathroom door every hour(he was probably alone) and woke me up each time~ the adjoining door is that thin!

Was on a business trip when I visited the Red Lion.

Used the hotel transportation to and from the airport and once downtown. Beka, and Jimmy were both awesome. Extremely helpful and nice. Joy at the front desk always greets with a smile and checks you in fast. My only complaint is the room A/C never got cold enough to sleep really well. Hopefully it was a one-off problem. Great food,...

The room was clean and quiet. The hotel restaurants had good food. The shuttle service was fantastic. If they weren't taking people to the airport, they would take the hotel guests to wherever they needed to go. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit.

My family and I stayed here despite reading customer reviews that it was outdated or old looking. It was most certainly not. There was a friendly staff and very modern looking decor. My only complaint was that it was a little noisy above us in beginning of the night around 10pm but that calmed down quickly and we slept on...

The staff here seemed a bit overworked, overwhelmed and not all that friendly. Front desk staff and bar staff both. They are doing a renovation in the lobby area. Hopefully the new look will give the employees a new attitude. Rooms were fine. Nothing special. Clean and comfortable. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either.

Good spot to stop in on our roadtrip farther south. The amenities were good and the front desk staff were nice. We had some drinks in the lounge and watched the hockey game and then went to bed. Nothing special but no complaints.
