Driving up it looks like a dated motel, and once inside that continues although they are being renovated. No valet/bell service but ample parking. Front desk staff not engaged at all...almost on remote. Housekeeping staff on the other hand were absolute delights and always friendly. Rooms are a bit of a hike and the elevator was intermittently working the days...

Great comfortable updated hotel; very good restaurant on property and other good restaurants a short walk away; great river walk below the hotel along local marinas on the Columbia River; staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We were not here for a conference, but there is great conference space here. Looked like a nice pool...unfortunately too cold to enjoy it.

This hotel looked like it would be a nice location if the weather is good. We had rain on a short 2 night stay. Restaurant had a view of the river with a deck to enjoy with sunny weather. Rooms were spacious with good beds. Very large facility with large conference meeting rooms.

Amazing views and good food. A bit on the expensive side though. Staff were busy but attentive, spent more time apologising than serving, but we needed for nothing. Had a nice night, we were staying on the island.

I picked the Red Lion because I was traveling alone with my 5-year-old niece figured I'd need help. I specifically chose a full service hotel because I thought that perks like valet and bell service would make the experience that much easier. I pulled up to find a vast parking lot and no valet. Parking was easy, but with hauling...

I always stay at Red Lion when visiting my dad in Portland. I find the hotel comfortable, clean, good food, and friendly. My only complaint is the band after midnight. You can hear the loud base which is pretty loud. Could not sleep till they were done at 2am. If one is on the street side u might not hear...

Great location and view. Restaurant was great. Front desk people are not friendly or helpful. Most rooms are newly renovated, so they are clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking and easy room access. Great location for visiting Portland and Vancouver, close to lots of shopping.

Stayed here for 2 weeks on business. The rooms are large, spacious and well maintained. Housekeeping is generally good and the sheets get changed daily and the room is always made up nice. The walk to some of the rooms from reception is quite epic and gives a feeling for how big this hotel actually is. This would be something...

Beautiful view. Nice comfortable bed. The hotel is so large!! Got lost a couple of times trying to get to our room. 😜😜😜😜😜😜. The bathroom had been renovated and was very large. Beautiful walk in shower...the bed was one of the better beds lately in a hotel. Balcony.

Hotel met our expectations and was close to what we wanted to do and see while in Portland. Short trip to catch the yellow line downtown. Close to the marinas to look at boats. Close to some good places to eat and hang out.
