We recently gathered the family in Eureka for funeral services of a family member. In all we rented 7 rooms. The staff was most courteous and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us, even loaning us their personal umbrella on a very rainy day. In addition, the breakfast buffet which was...

We came to Eureka to meet our first grandson born on New Year's Day. Having never been to Eureka, we didn't know where to stay. After reading other reviews, we decided to take a chance on this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. Everyone was so nice. All of the staff were professional and polite. I was concerned on the second...

I stayed here with a group for a quick overnight stay during a business trip. The people are nice here, but the rooms are in desperate need of a makeover. Most of the furniture is at least 20-30 years old.

We chose the Red Lion because we were traveling with our (very large) dog (for the first time), and needed a dog friendly place to stay. We loved it! The single queen room was plenty large, and very clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly. The hot breakfast was included and had different items each morning. The only negative...

The staff was wonderful at the front desk and throughout the hotel. The hotel rooms are comfortable and clean. The beds helped me sleep like a baby. The Bar/Restaurant was enjoyable and had good food. The outdoor heated pool is open all year. We had a meeting and the catering staff took great care of us. I will be back!

The Red Lion in Eureka is absolutely amazing, from the spacious and clean rooms to the prompt and courteous service. Front desk agents Caila and Dustin have gone above and beyond to make my stay stress free and memorable. They are both great employees and care greatly about providing top notch customer service.

I recently stopped in the Red Lion late on a Saturday afternoon. Lois was at the front desk. I asked if they had rooms and what the rate would be. He happily showed me one and gave me a great rate.
