We booked for 2 nights. After working a 13 hour day, exhausted we returned to our room to collapse. Beds were made, but sheets had not been changed. Only thing restocked was towels. No cups, glasses, no toilet paper... Good thing there was a box of tissues!

Please remember too, we have service 24 hours, all you need to do is call down to the desk and someone will take care... More

The Red Lion was a great place to stay. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were quiet and comfortable. The breakfast that was included was very good. Lots of hot food variety! The pool was big and fun for the kids!

Nice room, great bedding. Superb lobby. Good brekkie. Only downsides are cramped bathroom and breakfast room -- kinda dark in the morning. Also, hotel is attached to mall downtown, so a few odd folks wandering around at night.

The free breakfast was excellent with lots of choices, including omelettes, bacon, sausage, waffles, french toast, fruit, yogurt, etc. The location was also handy to the mall, downtown restaurants and the...

Coming in from the main highway we could easily see and arrive at this hotel. Once I opened up the large wooden doors and entered through the main entrance, I was greeted by a nice roaring wood fire and a very impressive lobby featuring a chandelier made up of antlers.
