Apparently there are new owners, so there are still kinks being worked out (like the pool and spa, not a biggy for us). That said, we had the "executive suite" which offers an additional sitting room. This gave us more than enough room to spread out our gear considering we had been camping for nights previous! There are still some... More

The room was okay. If you are a traveler who doesn't need internet access and this is all you care about then you will be fine for the price. The ice machine was marked out of order but previous reviews showed that this has been the case for too long. Fix it already. Our internet access was slower than dial... More

This was a convenient place for me to stop for the night, and for the price I paid I wasn't expecting miracles. The water was off (in the whole Hotel) when I arrived and took a while to be sorted out. Pool closed. Bar/Lounge closed. Vending machine didn't work. There was washing/drying facilities for my clothes which was a welcome... More

Ok, so here's the scoop on this hotel from several visits I've made to Grants my home town. First, the pool has been broken for over 15 years and the management has no plans to fix it ever in my opinion. The front desk workers will not be honest about this because the hotel sells rooms having people believe there's... More

We stayed here one night on the way back from the Grand Canyon. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. It was very affordable and had an AARP discount which added to the value. Breakfast had eggs cooked to order, hash browns, and sausage plus extras like waffles, toast and pastries. The pool was not working when we were there. All... More

We search the Internet for a price deal on a hotel where we could stop for the night as we traveled down I40. We settled on the Red Lion in Grants. The price was real low but the reviews were mediocre. Sure the hotel has seen better years and the pool is "temporarily" out of service. (Doesn't look like it... More

This hotel was a dump. And since we prepaid online we had to do a deposit when checked in. The deposit was never refunded and when I called the hotel, they blamed my bank. I had to file a dispute which the hotel then denied by using the paper they made me sign for my pet fee. So I paid... More

Stayed here one night. Everything in the room worked well. Breakfast was good. They will cook egg dishes to order which was a very nice touch. Unfortunately, the pool has been out of use for quite some time.
