I stayed here for 4 nights. I got the perfect room that I had requested in my reservation made well in advance. The staff are very attentive in this large property. It is being slowly updated, but the surroundings are great too.

Twice I requested the broken glass in front of the doggie bag dispenser (which was never filled even though I requested that also) to be cleaned up. It never was and I was there two more days. Sure hope no dog had lacerated feet! I just stood back and threw my dog's poop bag into the dispenser and hoped I...

Ardith -- I am truly sorry that the glass and doggie bag dispenser were not attended to! I will forward this to our maintenance manager for his research and training responsibilities. I, too, sincerely hope that none of our four legged guests were injured! Rod Russell General Manger

Room is very big, clean but its decoration is outdated. Request room with a river view and you will enjoy a breathtaking of Columbia river view. Hotel is located near shopping mall which you can find Target, Ross, TJ Maxx, Toys r us and Ultra there. It takes only 5 minutes drive.

I stayed three nights at this property. It is large, spread out and on Hayden Island right on the water. It is a nice property with a restaurant and bar and lots of parking and is just off the freeway. My room was comfortable, though the heating system made strange knocking sounds. The restaurant is basic, but serves decent food,...

I stay here at least once a year for the Rose City Dog Show--the staff is usually swamped but do a great job of trying to keep the place nice for everyone while hundreds of people and their dogs set up camp there for a few days. The riverside location is a nice walk in the evenings and it is...

As we had a poor experience in another Red Lion Hotel in the past, we specifically asked for a clean room on the phone when we reserved the room. We also decided to check the room for cleanliness before we make the decision to stay. When we entered the room, the top of the table and bed sides tables were...

Great location! The hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, and a full service grocery store - let's not forget the fact that the hotel sits on the banks of the Columbia River. If ever you enjoy a room with a view, you will be glad you did! All in all, a very pleasant stay; rooms are spacious and clean with...

Snow and Ice caused us to seek refuge for a couple of days and the Red Lion is closeby. We booked a fireplace suite. The room was nicely sized with a great view of the river, but the room was very tired. I asked if this was one of the updated/remodeled rooms and the answer was yes. Restaurant has a...

this was a large elegant building that looks like it was very well built and cared for. The breakfast that was included in my rate was plentiful and delicious.

I ended up being in Portland in January during the worst snow in recent times. Ended up stuck in for a day and the hotel made it very comfortable. Staff was friendly and offered to help dig my car out of the snow. Resteraunt was good too.
