I've never had a bad stay at the RL until this time. Room reeked of lung darts, cushion on the chair was torn with stuffing hanging out and the coffee maker had the wrong carafe so you had to hold the lid of it against the bottom of the filter basket to make coffee. Other than that, room was fine.

So if youre gonna have a rewards program you should make it at least work enough so that things are easier for the guest... this is almost like trying to prove something in court... hopefully things will streamline when the app is up and running better bc there is no excuse for the ineptitude of most of the staff in...

We enjoyed our stay this is my seventh time here. I usually do not write reviews, but the hotel has always been clean reasonable priced, and friendly staff has served us well. Also, there is a dining area we tried for a buffet style breakfast that was nice.

I stayed here several times in the past and never did I have this much trouble with my room. The first room I had had dirty sheets so they had me look at another room. The 2nd room I looked at had a broken heater so they had me look at a 3rd room that also had a broken heater....

Only complaint is the CLC booking/ rating system. Been having issues with overcharging. This happens with the red lion in Redding as well. Sometimes my CLC doesn't go through. Please address this. Thank you.

carlw666, thank you for your review. It looks like the CLC rate doesn't change for our hotel. I think Redding may have a different negotiated rate with CLC. I will forward your concerns to our accounting department and see if they can see why your card number might not work.

We have been coming to this motel about 2-3 times a year to meet with friends and enjoy a visit and dinner in Eureka. The place is unfortunately going downhill. The king size bed is very very comfortable and the rooms are nice sized. Three of the lamps in the room had burned out lightbulbs. The bathtub floor was kindof...

dcarver2017, Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your comfortable bed, sorry the rest of the room was not up to our standards. We do try to keep the homeless out of our hotel, they sometimes get by the front desk while we are busy. Thank you for the information on your review.

I remember the bed as being very comfortable....but don't plan on sleeping late here, as any noise in the hallway comes right into the room. Friendly staff and lots of parking right out front. The hotel's restaurant / bar is a very simple room with a basic menu. Our waitress was really great. She was the only one waiting tables...

We stayed at the Red Lion Hotel in Eureka for one night during Thanksgiving weekend. The hotel looks charming upon our arrival and the service was great. Rooms are spacious and clean, any issues we had were dealt with immediately. Breakfast served in the morning is worth the money. Hot breakfast with many options and food being replenished constantly, resulting...

Possibly the most disgusting room I've ever stayed in. Bedbugs, used coffee in the machine, hairs on the pillows. The front desk and corporate management were notified and did absolutely nothing. Zero. Stay away!

Good afternoon Sarah I am sorry your room did not meet our standards. As I told you yesterday when I spoke to you the bug was not a bed bug.
