We have stayed here multiple times in the past 10 years and always enjoy it. The location along the river is great. We always manage to get in a few walks, and it is a pretty easy walk to downtown across Riverfront Park. The rooms could use a bit of a makeover, but are comfortable. Our room smelled a bit...

The smell of cigarettes was overwhelming. Just because they say it is smoke free isn't enough. Probably needs new carpet and drapes to really smell better. Hotel overall is a bit dated, but a lovely location on the river. Food was average, and restaurant was understaffed.

Good afternoon and thank you for your recent stay with us. Of course I am disappointed to read that your room smelled like smoke upon check-in. We are definitely a non-smoking facility, however, unfortunately every once in awhile a guest will smoke in or around a room causing some extra hard work for our amazing housekeeping staff. We do have...

I recently booked Red Lion River Inn via phone as I saw an advertised rate of 99.85 Canadian at Par on their website. The lady I booked the room through assured me that it would be 99.85 plus tax Cdn at par. I was quite happy with that rate. The room was okay. The beds were comfortable but the room...

The hotel was Not the Quality establishment it was years ago when I was last a guest. The hallway carpets were dirty and needed a good cleaning. We checked into a room that was in need of dusting and smelled strongly of mold. We waited approximately 45 minutes for the guest service attendant to arrange transfer to another room. Once...

I liked the location, very nice path out back along the Spokane river that goes by Gonzaga. The patio was a nice spot for coffee, meal or drinks. The room was clean & the front desk very friendly at check-in.

Booked a double queen room online at a really decent price for the first night of a week long car trip with my 78 year old mother.

We found this motel acceptable, but getting a tad worn out. The location is great but everything would benefit from an upgrade. The service was great and the staff friendly. If you are looking for something special, this probably isn't the place to stay.
