You can tell this is an older motel that has been renovated. The room was actually pretty good, and quiet considering the motel is not far from Highway 99. They have pet friendly rooms which I often need and are sometimes hard to find. The bar and restaurant are very old school and they do not serve free continental breakfast...

Room felt dated and had a noisy fridge. No shower curtain provided and an odd smell. We walked into the attached bar and walked straight out as it felt like we had walked into 1986. Breakfast was nice but they were out of sausage and they tried to charge extra for orange juice. Overall it was Ok for the rice...

I love the comfortable beds, clean rooms, room size, and the free breakfast. The staff is very helpful plus they help us locating my light up mirror I forgot in our room. They saved it for us till we got back a few days later.

Rooms are dated but clean and very comfortable. Plumbing does have issues that need to be addressed, but overall our stay was very nice.

We've stayed at Red Lion 3 times now and have been happy with just about everything. We've felt it was very worth the money and a good deal with the breakfast. However, this last stay a couple of days ago was a little disappointing as far as the free breakfast goes. What we liked most about this hotel was the...
