Salem, Oregon
Reviewed yesterday NEW

70'so through back. Dirty from remodel. Toilet and shower part if bedroom, no privacy. The room was near the pool and every time the wall HVAC came on it pumped the room full of chlorine smell. There was mold on the shower ceiling.

We stayed at 3 Red Lions (downtown Portland by the Jantzen River, Port Angeles, and this one). Tacoma location is not worth the price. To RedLion management: re-brand needs to be a complete inside out change. You have great pictures taken, but your staff here aren't happy, and therefore, their level of service does not reflect your Red Lion mission/standard....

Front desk and breakfast staff were all very friendly during every interaction and it was clear they were in the midst of a remodel so definitely kept that in mind as we traveled throughout the hotel. Breakfast was your standard continental breakfast and hit the spot and the staff was quick to refill the coffee when it ran out. Room...

The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. The price was affordable. But next time we will upgrade to a newer hotel with more modern accommodations. The halls, staircase and entry ways were horribly dirty because of age possibly. But we were wondering to ourselves if it's future involved demolition. You could tell in it's day, it was a grand hotel....

We had to call the front desk to change rooms because the room we were originally given had not been cleaned (dirty towels hanging from the shower curtain rod, obvious debris on the floor). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The bar across the street made it difficult to sleep and get rested after a very long drive, though.

This hotel was very family friendly and the staff was great. Unfortunately it's under an overhaul and we stayed in the before picture. Our furnishings were dilapidated and the room itself was needing some repairs. The beds were comfy though and the pool and breakfast were good. Also the location is convenient. If you are going to stay here, consider...

I was greatful for the effort they showed picking our rooms. All 4 were in the same area and by the pool. Waffle maker wasn't working right but there was plenty of other food to eat with plenty of space and time to eat it. Employees were very nice, wifi was a plus and plenty of restaurants near by.
