We initially were going to book the Best Western Alladin via Hotwire for $58+tax. After seeing the BW only had an indoor pool with no hot-tub, we decided to splurge and spend $20 finding a great rate for the Red Lion with two Queens.
Was a little disturbed the hotel is right next to I-5 but it is very quiet in side with no freeway noise (good windows/insulation). We discovered the Sport Pub Restaurant does not allow minors - looked decent too with lots of plasma screens. Then we discovered the Hot Tub was not working (being remodeled). Decided to be cheapskates and save $20 and hit the BW Alladin instead. Alladin was definitely a big step down (no fridge or microwave like the RL.) Wish we would have stayed at the RL. If hot tub was working and on-site restaurant allowed minors, I'd give it 4 stars. This place though isn't worth more than $80 a night for the area ad type of hotel. I can see how people paying more may have been disappointed a bit. It's nothing special.
