I have stayed at other hotels and inns in Pendleton and even though Red Lion is a little higher in price I will pay it for the comfortable beds and a very quiet nights rest. It means a lot when that's what you are paying forGenuine Expedia guest review
"Room was clean and reasonably priced"
I found the room clean and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and helpful. They had a nice lounge with live entertainment on Saturday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A let down, overall"
Pendleton is a small historic old West town, so we didn't expect bells and whistles. But Red Lion has a decent reputation. The receptionist when we checked in was not busy with any other customers but was quite brusque with us. She dramatically whipped out a printed statement for us to initial regarding smoking on the premises or sneaking in an undisclosed […] pet and one other thing I forget. It might've been prohibiting loud music. All of these 'infractions' carried fines. OK, I get it. But we don't smoke or travel with a pet. And after feeling like we'd been scolded properly, we went to our room and it had the unpleasant trace smell of oooold cigarettes. This didn't happen recently. Replace the stinky carpet people!

"Nice place to spend the night"
Nice place to stay on our way through Pendleton. Convenient - right off the freeway - nice views - very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and easy place to stay"
The hotel was easy to find. It's about a mile from downtown. The room was nice, as was the lobby area. I would warn other travelers that the hot tub is outside and closes fairly early. Also, breakfast is not included in the price. And the hotel's restaurant closes fairly early in the evening. But I would still stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent place to stay..."
This hotel is nice and quiet. Located off of I-84 there was no noise from the freeway. The room was clean, beds were very comfortable and front desk was pleasant. One bit of advice-there is a Shari's Restaurant across the road. We ate there and it was horrible. Flies were everywhere and the food was awful. It is best to pay a little extra and eat at […] the hotel! Red Lion has a nice place to eat and worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice hotel for the weekend stay. Very clean and comfortable. We just couldn't watch the Duck game there but it was a nice stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Second visit as pleasing as the first!"
While on a trip to visit colleges, we happened upon this hotel by chance because it was dog friendly. We were so pleasantly surprised at the hospitality, comfort, and setting. When we traveled again for college move-in, we made it a point to stay there again. It was just as we remembered, fantastically comfortable and such a friendly staff. We will […] definitely be back!!

"Nicest hotel close to everything"
Quiet, clean and very large rooms. Bathrooms are very large and nice and staff very helpful. Stay here about once a month and enjoy it very much. Take family with me when I go and they love it alsoGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms are large and very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had the buffet breakfast, and it was a little understaffed and the lady that was seating us was confused as how we could pay cash. She wasn't very organized.Genuine Expedia guest review
"room excellent for disabled"
The room we were in was geared to assist the disabled. I so appreciated the shower and the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"a bit noisy in the hallways"
Comfy , good location. Easy in and out for handicapped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We got a big room for our bucks!"
We booked a room that day in the morning and had a great experience... the room was a decent size with room to maneuver ( we booked a disabled room since my mom whom I was traveling with is 85). Ended up on the first floor with a big suite of sorts. We enjoyed an evening meal at the restaurant and the waiter was very nice, a young man was very accommodating. […] In the morning the buffet was excellent with a well worth it price. Overall nice stay...way to go Red Lion! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ok for overnight stay"
Hotel is older and showing its age.everything about it was just ok, nothing special. Bed was ok, pillows were horrible. Bathroom has not been refurbished since the hotel was built. We were just looking for an inexpensive overnight and this was the least expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find"
We were just passing through. Up and gone early. We would stay here again if the price is right.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great view from the restaurant"
just passing through - adequate place, nice front desk, decent bar food and serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is a little long in the tooth. I had to pay an upgrade fee to get a room with a view and it wasn't worth it-ground floor with only a partial view. Desk clerk told us about the awesome breakfast buffet and when we checked it out it was substandard to say the least. Drove into town and had a freshly prepared breakfast for less than the price […] of the buffet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Older hotel. Definitely not as clean as I would have liked. However, friendly service at front desk. I liked the sliding door for quick access to parking lot . Also a fridge. The best part for us was the swimming pool outside .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very helpful, rooms are nice and spacious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice staying, wish the service was a little better about helping with late check out. My wife had fallen sick and need alittle later check out. They told me I had to wait until the manager got back the next day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good area, and pool and bathroom o and the breakfast for 4.99 was not bad at allGenuine Expedia guest review
"An older hotel but not a bad one."
We were on the road, just stayed one night. Red Lion is a hotel with some mileage, it can use some updating. We like the large room and lots of public space. The pool is nice, a bit chilly outdoor but kids did not mind. Staff are friendly. We had a comfortable stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good breakfast 4.95Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice for a quick stay"
The room seemed nicely appointed, but the staff did not seem to be very happy to working there. Overall no real concerns, the room was comfortable and clean, and we will most likely stay there again when we visit Pendleton.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice older hotel. Staff very friendly. Views from most of the hotel are wonderful. Unfortunately our room had a view of a building that had a hole knocked in it. But since we were only there to sleep for the most part it was fine. The bar staff was wonderful!! Good time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, Comfortable & Great View From The Lounge"
Had a very relaxing evening after a LONG day. Quite in the room and hotel lounge. The view over the wheat fields what relaxing and the service was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to town."
enjoyed the pool and visiting the downtown area which are both very kid friendly. Close to freeway.Genuine Expedia guest review
still has covert cigarette smells, hard to open the main door to get into the area where the rooms are. The bed was comfortable, but the products used to remove smoke smell caused stuffiness.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We wished we stay at a different hotel."
We had a 3 night/4 day stay. The staff, the room view out the back,and the workout room was excellent!. The areas that we were disappointed in are: the large stains in the hallway carpet areas, no restaurant/food service from 1pm to 5pm or after 9pm, the bar opened at 5pm and closed by 9pm, the breakfast buffet was very sad because the food was of POOR […] quality, the other times we ate there it wasn't that good either (we ate out after the first 24 hours), the coffee in the room SUCKED ( went across to chevron for coffee), the bed sheets and pillow case had blood spots on them and the bed did not smell clean/fresh until they brought us new sheets/cases, not one room's balcony had outside chairs to sit on (we asked for chairs to sit on the balancy, received banquet type chairs), the parking lot hasn't been taken care of in many, many years (LOTS of large cracks that need to be filled, etc) and the staff resembles a skelton crew. The new out of the area owner(s) who took over in approximately April of this year let all the management staff go shortly after their purchase and now the employees run the hotel. We wished we stayed at a different hotel that had a work out room, pool, restaurant, and bar. The pictures on the website are misleading. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Could be a little more accomodating"
We were moving out of state and this was to be our first stop. Got a late start, then had car trouble and decided to wait until the next day to start out. Even though it was after the cut off time to cancel the reservation, I called anyway to let them know we wouldn't make it in case they needed the room for another guest. At the same time made the […] same exact reservation for the next day. Cancelled reservation included breakfast, 2nd one did not. The hotel made a pure profit from our cancellation of two rooms the first night. You would think they could have thrown breakfast in the day we actually did stay there. We had one pet room and the carpet was very stained. I know it's not under their control what people's pets do, but they could do a better job of cleaning the room. The other two hotel chains that we stayed in did not have stained carpets. So other than the awful carpet and no breakfast included in the stay, it was a nice hotel and very quiet.

"Easy freeway access"
The hotel was easy to find,guiet,secure and has a great setting.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has large rooms with very comfortable beds. The breakfast is very nice at a reasonable price. The only complaint was the internet access at our particular room was not working when we needed it. I'm sure the management will address this issue in short order.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and smelly."
We arrived at the Red Lion at the 3:00 check in time, but were told our room wasn't ready. Although we were tired from a long day of driving, we had to wait over 45 minutes to get our room. The lady at the front desk was very nice about it, though. The first thing we noticed was that the entire hotel smelled musty and old. The carpeted floors were lumpy […] and uncomfortable to walk on. Our room was reasonably clean, but smelled musty and nasty. The television was one of the old tube versions, and was nearly unwatchable, as the picture was fuzzy no matter what channel we used. The ice bucket in our room was dirty, so didn't use that either. We decided NOT to eat at the restaurant in the hotel, as the musty smell was everywhere and would have put us off our meal. I definitely can't recommend this place to anybody unless they're desperate for a place to stay. I wouldn't repeat the experience again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet and comfort with an awesome view"
This is a fantastic hotel for a very reasonable price. Easy to find from the freeway, with a majestic view of the prairie around Pendleton from the pool and back gardens, and a sense of privacy and quiet from the rest of the city. Lots of room for kids to play safely outside. My room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. And quiet! I really liked that […] the room was equipped with glass glasses instead of plastic. Breakfast buffet is full of choices to fit everyone and the food is good. Too bad it wasn't included in the price of the room, but for only five dollars on top of an already reasonable room rate, the convenience was well worth it. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and quiet."
Hotel was very conveniently located near the highway. The rooms were fine and were particularly quiet. Our only complaint might be that the breakfast "buffet" was not really a buffet, but it was adequate. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very disabled friendly"
very well designed for handicapped (non-wheelchair) customers. the entire hotel was very accommodating for physical disability.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Shabby and tired. No amenities."
This hotel was very disappointing. Dining room and bar don't open until 5pm so there was no place to get a soft drink or lunch. Pop machines were empty and to get ice, you had to go downstairs. Staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. We were told there was full breakfast service in the morning but when we went to the dining room, only a Continental […] breakfast was offered for $4.99. The room was small and shabby and had a view of the parking lot. I would never stay at this motel again and would never recommend it to anyone. There are a lot of motel choices at this location to choose from and we will choose another motel next time we are there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel needs a major update. The carpet, curtain, bedding furniture, tv, etc are all from the 80's.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, but haunted"
The staff was friendly and accommodating, the premises were clean although somewhat dated. The beds were not particularly comfortable, but they did the trick for a brief overnight stay after a day of driving. The only problem we ran into was the supernatural experience we had during the night. We left the light in the bathroom on for our daughter because […] our nightlight that we usually use had burned out. Shortly after getting in bed, my wife and I both observed the shadow of a man pass against the wall, as if someone had just walked in front of the bathroom... which was impossible since all of us were in bed and no one could have walked in front of the bathroom. After telling ourselves we hadn't really seen what we definitely did see, we attempted to sleep. While we slept, the covers of the bed were pulled off of us, and we had the sensation of someone standing near the bed and talking to our daughter, because she was clearly reacting and talking to someone we could not see. After we left the next morning, we read that the ghost of an employee who committed suicide is said to haunt the hotel. That must be who we ran into. He didn't seem aggressive or angry at all, just playful. So as long as you don't mind the chance of encountering a playful ghost in your room and having the covers pulled off of you in the middle of the night, then go ahead and stay here.

Great hotel for a great price. I always like when there is a vanity outside of the bathroom, so two can get ready in the morning. Very clean & comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in the Pendleton area."
The Front Desk changed our room without any problem when we decided we wanted a different view. The room was very nice, comfortable bed, very clean room. Didn't eat at the hotel restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
