The hotel is quiet and comfy but I had trouble with the pillows. The were lumpy so would advise if you have a sensitive neck to bring your own. The shower is amazing, lots of pressure.

The hotel seems to be stuck in the late 80's but without the feeling you were staying somewhere special as in other Red Lion's. Very few guests, lobby cold, non-inviting. No coffee/tea service that other places I've stayed have. No newspapers, My room chair was stained, computer chair worn out, no TV channel schedule in guest service book. Mattress felt...

I have stayed here before and have had good stays. This time the bed seemed different. Bed was AWESOME, better than I remember. Slept great! Staff is always friendly and willing to help when needed. Breakfast is better than other places but is not free like most hotels nowadays.. See you next time..

My first stay here was nearly 40 years ago! Back then I was a frequent guest while working at nearby manufacturing facilities.

A friend and I stayed for one night in September 2016. Check in was friendly. The hotel was quiet on a Sunday night. Overall, it's a tidy and cared-for hotel, but I think it's time for a remodel. Our room was clean but had a bit of a musty smell, as did the hallways. I'd stay again for an overnight...

Our room was at the back of the hotel, so it was very quiet. But the bathroom was so tiny, it was very difficult just to close the door to use the toilet. I think it was the smallest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel. The soap was black in color and not at all good to look...
