Canceled our room leaving them our deposit and then booked with this Red Lion. We arrived and were pleasantly surprised after the last local dive that we had just experienced an hour prior. The food in the lounge was awesome and excellent customer service. When we checked in to our room, we found a hand written note written by housekeeping...

A perfect place to stay for visiting the north cascades. Great value for your buck offering excellent accommodation and facilities supported by a friendly and helpful staff. Quality of service in lounge and restaurant good and the menu offered a varied choice.

The room smelled like dog pee, the sheer curtains were torn, the pool and spa were closed "for the season" (in May) and they charge $10 for a Continental Breakfast! Though they allow dogs, we had to keep ours on the bed while we were in the room to keep her from marking all the other dogs pee.

Very pleased. This had to be one of the best hotel experience I have ever had. We have been traveling for a week, staying in multiple hotels and this was the last one and definitely the best. Great way to end our trip.

I didn't exactly choose to stay here. My car broke down nearby and this was my closest walking distance option. A Super 8 was also nearby but I thought the Red Lion would be a little upgrade for my unplanned one-night vacation. Boy was I mistaken, read on: 1) The first photo shows a stain on the sheets (below the...

This is a very average hotel, conveniently located right off the freeway with some good amenities close by. On the plus side, the rooms are quite large and you get two sinks - one in the bathroom with the shower and toilet and the other right outside the bathroom. Bed was comfortable. We had a few sugar ants on the...

This is my second stay here. The rooms are large, neat and clean. I did have problems twice with the door keys - they were not keyed correctly to let me in (including outside) upon arrival, so I had to reload the car and go back up front as I was in the back of the place. It happened again...

We just needed a place to pull off the road for the night. We were very pleasantly surprised. Nice size room and very friendly staff. We ate in the bar, not sure I would do that again but there are other restaurants close by and Starbucks for morning coffee is a half mile away. I would stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry that our bar was not up to your expectations. We have had some staff changes, so we hope that in the future the issues that you've had in our lounge will be resolved. We appreciate your feedback.

Third time staying here on our way back to Canada from AZ. Always friendly and clean with a good potion for on sight dining. 2 minutes from I5 but if you ask for a room on the backside you would never know there was a major highway. This is another pet friendly property and worth while. We will be back

I enjoyed my stay, the room was clean and neat, and the staff at the front desk was very helpful. I did have a bit of a problem with the door key, but soon had that straightened out. I will return to this location.
