There was only one small bar of soap in the room and only 1 tissue left in the box of Kleenex. We have stayed in the Red Lion several times before and have always felt very comfortable. Housekeeping just needs to supply the room better. We arrived late and it was raining, so we did not want to go to the office to get more supplies. The breakfast array was nice and attendants attentive. The Red Lion is easy to find and in a good location.

"An Oldie But A Goodie"
I did over all enjoy my stay at the Red Lion Kelso. This Red Lion has been in Kelso since I was a child. Growing up in this area of Washington, The Red Lion was considered one of the nicest places to stay, host your Senior Prom Etc. The front desk staff was very kind and helpful. The Barista at the coffee to go stand was Outstanding. The hotel was short staffed, so often I did have to wait to have someone help me because the staff were performing multiple duties for other guests Example-- the Barista was also the waitress for the breakfast dinning room. But once they were free to help me they were excellent. This is why I gave service a 3 rating. The hotel needs further updating to make it the Shinning Star it once was. JD

"just passing through"
Very nice and great location. Our only negative is housekeeping seemed to be a bit lacking. We only had 4 small pillows for the 2 queen beds, and no bathmat. Not a big deal but worth a mention. The front desk was helpful and the food in the restaurant was excellent.

Rooms are old school, but nice and clean. However, the air conditioning is a joke! Room was very uncomfortable to sleep in if you are a cool sleeper like me! Most likely will not stay there again.

"Hotel close to restaurants"
Very disappointed! When I called Expedia to make this reservation it was confirmed to me that we would have access to the swimming pool. Upon arrival we are told the pool was closed until next week. The main reason we chose this hotel was for the outside pool. It was a disappointment for our boys! Jeri

"Great place to stay"
This was a quaint place to stay. The best were super comfortable and relaxing after a long day. The walls seemed more thin than usual and I could hear the people next door more than I had hoped but it is an older hotel. The staff was extra friendly and very helpful. Saturday morning breakfast doesn't start until 7am when we were told 6am which created an issue as we had to leave early in the morning. The staff member in charge that morning though was extra accommodating to us and two other guests. He brought us sweet bread and coffee and apologized for the confusion. His willingness to still serve us even though we were too early was commendable.

We have stayed in Kelso often, but had not tried Red Lion. We were happy to find helpful and accomodating staff. We were very pleased with the room. We have been given sub standard rooms elsehere and charged more because we have requested a pet room. Not true here. We also found the air quality to be good. No heavy cigarette odors. Thank you, Red Lion!

This hotel is above, say a Red Roof Inn, but not as good as a Fairfield or Courtyard. It's fairly clean, but dated decor. If you must stay in the Longview area, this is a good choice.

"Crashed for one night"
This was plenty comfortable for a one night crash on a trip. My only gripe is that we couldn't get the bright light from the parking lot completely blocked out with the shades. There was a pretty big gap along the side that let the light in. Didn't bother me, but my 12 yr old daughter had to sleep on the floor to fall asleep.

"Poor service"
When I arrived I was told that the queen needs I booked weren't available, and that even though I paid extra to get queen needs when booking, they couldn't guarantee the room would be available. They did not want to provide an upgrade or any compensation. I contacted Hotels.com customer service and they upgraded me to a suite with a king bed. Why couldn't the desk staff do that? Also the rooms are getting dated, with old tv's. They do have nice pillowtop beds though which is the primary reason I stay there.

"Decent hotel for price"
Rooms are a bit outdated but bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good but is only complimentary with certain rooms, luckily ours was included otherwise its 7.99 per person. We're taking potatoes O'Brien, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and pastries. Bar had no music and had poor service with no direct entrance from the pool, which was frustrating. Plus no bar servers came out to pool to take drink orders. Overall decent hotel for the price of 90 per night.

"Overnight stay for 24 hour running race"
Room was fine. Shower great. Room was clean. Upon entry room was cold. Could not get heater working until contacting staff. No one came t room so assume they had to turn something on. Maintenance of heating system appeared bad. Lent was all around the blower. Certainly appeared by sight and smell that the air filter had not been changed in a long time. Room ratre was great for a Red Lion Inn but part of that was clearly due to being a older Inn and the maintenance already mentioned

"Needs Lots of Updates"
The hotel looks worse from the outside than the inside. They have tried to upgrade things but missed the mark, i.e. ... granite on the counters and tile on the walls in the bathroom but old faucets, etc for the showers that hardly work. The new(ish) carpet had stains, the grout in the bathroom was nasty. The doors are ancient. There is no elevator so luggage had to carried up the stairs. It could be nice but they need to invest more time in cleaning and a lot more money. Will not stay at a Red Lion again unless it is brand new.

"Bright lights, cold water, no elevator."
The hotel is nice enough kind of dated. Our room faced the pool area which was closed for the season but they left the lights on so the room was lit up all night the black out drapes were no match for flood lights. Also the water for the shower was cold so I called the desk and they said they would check on it but we didn't here back so the next morning I called and said the valve was broken and showed us how to use it temporarily till he fixed it. That night it was fixed sort of it took us a minute to figure out it was backwards with the hot on the right side and cold on the left. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice enough. We were on the second floor and there is no elevator which is a problem with the luggage.
