"View is wonderful"
This Red Lion has been around for quite a few years and is clearly showing signs of wear. However, if you have a chance to stay in a water view room you most won't mind. The location is walking distance to downtown restaurants, bars and shops. Ideal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome view of the harbor"
Stayed overnight between camping in mountains, the room we had was a front row to the harbor and watching all the ships coming and going. Nice people and lots to do around the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"best location nice hotel"
very nice hotel. we had problem with the hot water and phone. got a complementry breakfast as compensation. beds are very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to ferry, otherwise disappointing."
Two star at best, a bit dumpy. Reserved 2 water views, only received one. Tone of noises sport teams running in hallways.Genuine Expedia guest review
We love the location however the knowledge of their desk help was wrong on every question or didn't know anything regarding there surrounding neighbors. When asked about restaurants and places didn't have a clueGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for one quick night"
Since its conveniently located close to most of the sites in the peninsula. However, in my opinion, pricey for what it really is: an upscale motel rather than a hotel..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a little long in the tooth for the price. I get it your paying for location but the location ain't that great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is like a 1960's style motel"
This isn't a hotel-it's more like a motel! It is old, and outdated. The rooms are small. You walk up stairs to get to your room from the outside (no elevator). The price is way too expensive for what you get. We checked in, looked at our room with dismay, and checked out without staying there. For just a little bit a night more, we booked at the Holiday […] Inn Express in Sequim, which was clean, fresh, and large enough to be comfortable. Would not recommend this hotel.

"Not worth the price"
My best friend and I recently traveled to Port Angeles for a friend's wedding and we chose to stay at the Red Lion over other local hotels thinking it would be the nicest. Unfortunately, we were very unhappy with the overall condition of the hotel and the price we paid. After seeing the room, we regretted our decision and wish we would have choose one […] of the cheaper hotels. A few of the reasons we were unhappy with our choice of the Red Lion were: the AC made a loud obnoxious noise, the fridge would consistently turn off unless we kept unplugging/plugging it back in, the bathtub wasn't cleaned well (there was hair on the shower wall), when using the shower it made a huge water mess on the bathroom floor, and the front door to the room was grossly dirty.

"Wake up to the sound of the boats in the harbor"
Unfortunately, the hotel didn't meet our expectations. You will hear the horns of the boat as they enter the harbor 24/7. Also, the walls of the rooms are paper-thin... you will hear other guests in their rooms and in the hallwaysGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Red Lion Hotel Port Angeles We would like to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. I would like to apologize for all of the outside noise you were able to hear in your room. We appreciate you taking the time to rate our hotel based on the experience during your stay. You are a valued guest and we do hope that you will stay with Red Lion Hotels again in the future.
"Close to the Ferry"
We chose to stay here because it is within easy walking distance of the Victoria ferry. The room was overpriced and when we returned from Victoria it had not been cleaned or retoweled, although we had not left a do not disturb sign on the door.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Water View Rooms"
We just wanted to rest with a view of the Strait. This hotel provided just that. The staff were exceptionally friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Realized this is an older hotel but, the smell in the room is terrible. Musty, dirty carpets, sink wouldn't drain. Overall, not worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient and clean"
Family of four on a drive seeing the Olympic Peninsula - fit our needs exactly. Recommend getting the waterfront room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Average stay with mold smell in room. Motel was fairly clean and close to the port and ferry.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Waterfront Hotel or Curbside Hotel"
I prefer to stay at Red Lion hotels because of the higher quality. I selected this hotel for this stay, because it was advertised as a waterfront hotel. When I checked in, however, they had us booked in a room in a building behind the waterfront hotel, with no view other than the parking lot and a 40' embankment next to Hwy. 101. When I complained about […] this, the staff offered a waterfront room at a higher rate that I originally bargained for. I didn't want to hassle this and just paid the higher rate. The room was quite nice, and being right on the water was quite an experience. So the only dissatisfaction is with the advertising. There must be a clear distinction made between a room in a waterfront hotel and a room behind a waterfront hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location, Location, Location"
The location is perfect if you are on the road between Seattle and Vancouver and need a convenient place to spend a couple of nights in order to visit Ruby Beach and Hurricane Ridge at Olympic National Park -- both very worthwhile places to visit!! We had a GREAT BURGER at The Next Door Gastro Pub a few blocks away, but would NEVER recommend the hotel's […] restaurant, which is outdated and had awful food. We only wound up at the restaurant because the gastro pub was full to the rafters on our second night... there was no comparison. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel with nice upgrades & renovations"
Nice location by the pier, beach and town. The room had attractive upgraded furnishings with plenty of room for our family of 4. The only thing that didn't match was the carpet. The carpet was in good condition but didn't match the new decor. We didn't use the the pool/ hot tub but they seemed nice and clean for outdoor facilities. I would definitely […] stay here again if in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was a bit run down and I was not impressed with the food at the restaurant. Great location to get to the ferry,Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Rooms were nice."
The room was very nice, furniture looked nearly new, and the twin queen beds were comfortable. The building exterior could use some sprucing up to match the nice room we had.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good firm beds. Smoking in non-smoking rooms"
Pros: Location. the hotel is within a quick walk from several restaurants including Bella Italia. Beds. Surprisingly for a 3-star hotel, the bed was firm and comfortable. Very good omelets at the hotel's restaurant. Their Denver omelet was delicious. Cons: smoke smell. Even though the hotel is non-smoking only, the first two rooms we got had a strong […] smoke smell. I don't know if people smoked inside or the smoke got into the room from the outside (they were on the first floor), but either way, it was unbearable. Front-desk staff promptly gave us keys to two different rooms, on the same level. One of them had no smoke smell at all, while the other one had some, although it wasn't as bad as in the first two. Overall, only one out of 4 rooms we tried was completely smoke-free. AC problems. I didn't test the AC in the first two rooms, but in the second two, the AC unit only worked in one of the rooms. I learned from one of the staff that ACs were old are were being slowly fixed/replaced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, hotel needs some work"
Nice room but our shower was moldy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Waterfront Lication"
Loved it! Great 4th of July fireworksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After spending the day driving up the OR and WA coast from Lincoln City, we were ready to relax. We had good food in the hotel restaurant and were met by friendly staff everywhere. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The only complaint is that the air conditioner did little to cool our room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for a day in red lion, and the experience was generally pleasant. The staff were nice, and location was very good. Rooms were clean, and the views were good (we chose the sea view). On the negative side, the facility can get little love. Our bath doors didn't close properly. Bed was uncomfortable for me. Overall, it was good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel ,would stay there again,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the beach"
We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and it met our needs. Space is tight with the desk at the foot of one of the beds. In room microwave and fridge are plusses for longer stays. The air conditioner was somewhat noisy when cranked up. The location, right on the waterfront, is a definite selling point. Overall, the room was pricy ( $200) for the amenities. […] Pets are $15/night extra. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were a bit dingy and dark. They also had an interesting smell. But the location near the waterfront was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel for the cost"
This is by no means the nicest hotel you will ever stay in, however for the cost, it was very sufficient. The onsite restaurant makes a good breakfast, the rooms were clean, no charge for parking and although the building is older, the room we were in appeared more recently renovated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Need free breakfast. Environment is not so clean. .…Genuine Expedia guest review
This motel was located next to the ferry system. The resurant food was excellent the staff was very friendly. It was a wonderful stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for the location and expectations"
We stayed at the hotel primarily because it was within walking distance of the ferry to Victoria BC. The hotel really exceeded our locations because of several reasons: 1. The staff was incredibly friendly, 2. The restaurant next to the hotel was very good and reasonably priced, 3. The beds were (or seemed to be) almost new and very comfortable (rare […] anymore in hotels), 4. They allowed us to keep our car in the parking lot all day during our day trip to Victoria (saving $10). If we have the opportunity to return, we will stay at this hotel.

"DO NOT BELIEVE THE PICTURES POSTED HERE"
I rarely write reviews, but I figured I'd be a good samaritan and try to spare you the trouble of staying here. I looked at the pictures of the hotel here on Expedia and found them to look pretty nice. When I arrived with my gf, we found the hotel to be much akin to a Motel 6. Plus, the room that we were given was full of tobacco smoke. They switched […] us to another room...same problem. Even without this issue, though, the motel is not great. I would pay no more than $80 to stay here, comparable to other motels. Incidentally, we did not end up staying here, because it was so bad and instead went to the Port Angeles Inn. SO MUCH BETTER AND 30% CHEAPER! If you go there, though, make sure you get a room with a view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Needs a little maitnentce."
My Mom and I stayed at the Red Lion for 4 nights. The room was nicely remodeled and had a very comfy bed. Our room was not serviced the second day we stayed but after a call to the office, fresh towels were brought. The water never stayed one temperature for showers and we was kept awake for most of the 3rd and 4th night due to thin walls and an upstairs […] neighbor who sounded like the were coming through the ceiling at any minute. I believe for the money spent for a room there the improvements should be made to the plumbing and possibly updating the outside of the hotel. That being said, it is the best looking hotel in Port Angeles and I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for Victoria Walk-On Ferry"
I booked the Red Lion as an overnight stay to catch the Black Ball Ferry to Victoria, BC as a walk-on passenger. This proved to be a great idea as the hotel is only a block from the ferry, I could leave my car on premise for $5 a day, and they have a great restaurant attached to the hotel. The room was quiet and clean. I definitely would use this hotel […] again and recommend it to friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location right on Port Angeles Harbor"
This is our second trip to this hotel; exactly the same experience both times. The building is older and shows its age in a few places but is overall well maintained and clean. The views from the harbor side rooms are fantastic. All waterfront attractions and some good dining options are in walking distance. The only thing I've noticed both times is […] that check-in was slow. There was a line both times and the process seemed to take several minutes with each person. Not a problem with the front desk personnel, they were pleasant and seemed very competent; maybe Red Lion's process/system is just a little slow. But overall good and we'll probably be back again.

"Guaranteed reservation not guaranteed."
Reserved 2 rooms but only one room available even though booked well in advance with credit card. Had to find another hotel room in town and split up. Hotel apologetic and gave us upgraded room but not much fun to deal with when on family vacation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better than I expected..."
Room was clean and the decor was nice. Pool was very clean. Staff was very nice. Only complaint is the water pressure in shower was weak and the temperature was not hot enough. Otherwise, everything was nice. No bad smells as others have reported. Overall a good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient hotel in Port Angeles"
The Red Lion is a decent motel, quite large, convenient to the Olympic National Park and the ferry to Victoria. It is on the water (I didn't pay the extra for a water view). Lots of parking, access to the onsite restaurant and a number of local places. My room was a good size, nice shower. Not much more to say--spent less than 2 hours awake in my r […] oom.

"Nice view, OK maintenance."
We were only staying this hotel before going to longer trip of peninsula. Just a night. We had beach view family room on second floor, plus rollaway bed to accommodate 5 people. Rollaway bed was not well maintained. it looked dirty and not very hygienic. But the other two queen bed was great. Heater / Air conditioner in the room very poor, making huge […] noise distracting sleep. We didn't have to use a lot of it but if you do, I think you'll have hard time ignoring it. Overall, price and view of hotel was plus but they need to spend more time on maintenance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I work for Stebbins Engineering Inc. and stay in motels often... We were there to repair the Paper Mills tank(s) in the local area and I thought the Red Lion Inn was supposed to be one of the better "Inns"... In short, The sink in the room leaked on my work clothes/boot and the maid service was lacking they took out the trash and dirty towels but neglected […] to bring fresh ones! I had to go to the front desk every day to complain. they did comp. me two free breakfast but wet work clothes and boot were my sacrifice... very discouraging...
