The first time we stayed at Hotel RL, we were really impressed. First of all we had received a great price going through Priceline. The renovated lobby and main floor looks very nice and clean. We didn't end up using their bar/restaurant as we got back to our room late, so I'm not sure the affordability or quality of their...

great decor, love the vibe of the hotel, but definitely needs service improvement. Computer at check in didn't work, Bar food was great, but service was slow, not very friendly. Computer for printing boarding pass didn't work either

Service was friendly but not personable. Had to ask about parking, breakfast, basic information that is usually given at check in. Also,was billed an extra $18, i called 3xs and have not received a phone call explaining why.

I'll start with the positives - The beds are comfortable, and the restaurant downstairs had a decent affordable menu for breakfast and into the late night. Wifi was also free, and shampoos etc in the bathroom were of a good quality. The TV is probably the biggest I've had in a hotel room and also had DirectTV. Aside from that...

I have been staying here for 24 years and the new RL is a great improvement. The clean Euro lobby is a nice update and it seems that the former Red Lion Soviet Union style AC system has been updated to individual room controlled units....and not the hot or cold of yesteryear. This is a fabulous location with the transit...

If you are ok with a second tier rundown but remodeled cheaply hotel then this is your spot. Convenient access to lots of things but not much to recommend about the hotel itself. The TV worked well. Entrances except for the main lobby were dirty. Doors, windows and handles all looked well used without being cleaned in the last week....

The room was OK and the bed was average comfortable. I do not like the fact that the beds had a flat sheet instead of a fitted sheet on the mattress nor did I appreciate the microwave having to short of a cord to be plugged in and the mold in the bathroom and no clock radio no phonebook no...

Disgusting room. No A/C. Used tampon on the floor. Tub did not drain and the hot and cold water was reversed. Do not even bother with complaints because the manager Kent did not care and was very rude. He was as disgusting and dirty as the room was!!

The room was nice and clean, the beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was very small though and paint was bubbled up from moisture. When they cleaned it the first day they didn't replace any of the soaps or lotion. Overall it was an average experience, not great but not bad.
