"Good cheap option in Bellevue"
The outside looks like an old motel but the room are big, clean and quiet. Good quality/price ratio. Certainly as good an option as the hotels next to it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Avoid Red Lion Bellvue"
Hotel is way overdue for an update and remodel. Room felt damp and mustyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from home."
The room we had was perfect for what we needed and for the money. My wife was having a medical procedure done and needed a place that was clean, comfortable and close by the medical office. The room met all our needs and was perfect for the time see needed for her recovery from the surgery. We stayed at the Red Lion in Bellevue for 5 days before flying […] back to our home in Alaska. There was never one complaint about anything the whole time. We have already booked a reservation for 3 nights for her follow up appointment in 3 months. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Could have been much better"
Weekend business trip, one event was at hotel, so stayed there for convenience. Hotel/motel is tired, needs updating, room is cramped, bath room very small, housekeeping did as little as possible, restaurant is mediocre. Will not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Red Lion Bellevue Review"
It was close to our family residence and convenient. Room was clean and spacious. It was located near 2 malls and near the Bellevue downtown area. Would definitely stay here again. The only complaint was the fact that breakfast was at Jonah's restaurant and I was not prepared for the additional tip to be paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel in bellevue - better options but great quality/priceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for the price."
Most other places in Bellevue were around the $300 range which is far more than I'd like to pay for a hotel that I won't hardly be spending much time at, other than sleeping. The room was nice and kept very clean. I stayed for 3 nights and room was cleaned each day. Location was nice because it was close enough to everything but not to close.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Red Lion Stay"
Good price, nice place, clean and very nice staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to events."
I found the linens to be clean but worn. The mattress pad was old and kept coming off the edges. The comforter didn't feel fluffy. Although room service wasn't offered, Jonah staff put together a nice breakfast for my room. I cannot walk well after surgery and appreciated that. I stayed in room 126 Oct. 31. Staff was extremely nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Will definitely stay here again! Pet friendly!"
We stayed here for 2 nights with two dogs. They gave us a 1st floor room with a sliding glass door that accessed a small grassy area.The room was very clean and nice looking. The water pressure in the bathroom was amazing. The bed was a little firm for our taste, but did have a pillow top. The pillows were heavenly. We never heard our neighbors tvs […] or conversations, but doors slamming and occasionally noise from the hallway were disruptive. This died down by the time we were ready to go to sleep. The location has such easy access to the freeway, it took us maybe 20 minutes to get to Pike's Market on Saturday. There was a dog park nearby. Using Grub Hub we found multiple options to have dinner delivered to us. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful any time we had questions. I'd recommend skipping the breakfast at Jonah's restaurant if you didn't get it free with the room.One day the service was great, the other day it was slow. The pancakes and french toast were tough and chewy, etc.The OJ was fresh squeezed & delicious! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Though the customer service was helpful, there were some problems: the key cards we had didnt work (both sets that were changed), there was a dirty towel (stained maybe?), and in the shower there was a used bar of soap. We had a choice of ground floor or 2nd floor but there were no elevators and my 78 y.o mom has an injured knee, so we chose ground […] floor. Only one available was 167 right next to the entrance/exit door. The restaurant was good and the breakfast buffet had good choices. Overall I was dissapointed because I was in charge of choosing the hotel and also recommended it to a friend the same weekend. I wouldn't choose this particular Red Lion again.

Response by Red Lion Hotel Bellevue Thank you very much for providing helpful feedback regarding your stay. I am glad you enjoyed the Jonahs breakfast buffet but I am sorry to hear about the difficulty you had with the key cards, the condition of the towels and that there was a used bar of soap in your bathtub. We take all of our guest’s comments seriously as they assist us in providing better service. I have passed along this message to the Housekeeping and Engineering Managers to make sure these incidents don't occur again. We hope you will be staying with us again so we can prove our ability to exceed your expectations. Shawn Darling General Manager
"Freeway close, but couldn't hear it!"
I stayed here for a convention that was at the Meydenbauer Convention Center which is within walking distance of the hotel. Shuttle service was very accomadating, and dropped off and picked us up as planned. When a shuttle was not available, they sent over a taxi and took care of the fair! Friendly staff, clean rooms, and quiet considering it is alongside […] the freeway! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Bellevue in October"
Easy to get to. Nice dining room Bathroom vanity could have been re-varnished peelingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again - BUT ........."
PROS: Was here for business and found the hotel was well located from our meetings. Hotel was easy to find, well lit, nicely maintained outside and the front desk and room staff were very friendly. Room was clean, had lots of plugs for devices (big plus) and had a great desk, to work on, with a comfortable chair. Bathroom was clean and had lots of counter […] top space. Coffee in the room was good. iPhone (4 and lower)/iPod clock was nice to have too. Cons: The hotel doors were old and noisy when closed (was woken up 3 times about 5/6AM by slamming doors when people were leaving their rooms and didn't bother to close the doors quietly). There were not enough creamers in the room for coffee and I had to keep asking for them. Towels barely wrap around your waist (and I am not a large person). The rooms were worn and outdated (wallpaper was starting to peel from the wall). The walls are thin, I could hear my neighbors conversation on his cell phone quite clearly. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed at this hotel for a week while attending training for my department, hotel was very nice. room was extremely clean, hotel staff was not very excited to be there. except for (kayla?) she was very nice and went out of her way to make copies for me when I asked for them. I will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I shall return"
I stayed here following surgery at a nearby hospital. The hotel staff, especially Yvette at the Front Desk and the other evening shift Lady were absolutely wonderful! Polite, friendly, and helpful. The room was quiet and the cleaning staff were responsive to our needs for extra (old) towels and large garbage bags to protect the sheets. Having the van […] available to drive us to the hospital for post-surgery visit or to the drug store were very helpful as I was unable to drive. Breakfast was great; with good variety of hot and cold items although service was atrocious. The two male servers were not even welcoming. Only the Oriental female server checked on whether we needed something. One night we had dinner, the waiter did not even give us water. There were only six customers in the restaurant at the time, with two servers. These same folks who were at breakfast were not welcoming at night, either. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Red Lion Hotel Bellevue Thank you so much for the great review! We so pleased to hear you enjoyed our hotel and we were able to accommodate you following your surgery. However, I am disappointed to hear about the experience you had with the servers in the restaurant. I have passed this along to the Restaurant Manager to make sure this doesn't occur in the future. We appreciate your business and hope you have the chance to visit us in the near future.
"Great place to stay on business to Bellevue"

"Will never use hotel.com, again."
According to hotel.com, only available room was handicapped room and the cost was higher than regular room. Upon arrival, the room was a walk-up to second floor and it was NOT a handicapped room (no extra space or wheelchair or any other handicap ammenities. Asked front desk upon arrival if stay could be extended extra night. Clerk did not even look […] in computer, but said NO. Asked if continental breakfast was provided and front desk clerk said YES, but there was no continental breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"An Old Red Lion"
uneventful stay... no room service, had to go get dinner and bring back to room. It's just an old Red Lion. The layout of the hotel(different buildings) is confusing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and comfortable."
Even though this hotel is situated right next to the 405, you would not notice any noise. Making it nice and quiet for recovering from a long day. Close to city center so you could walk, or ride a bike, which can be provided by the hotel. I continue to come back because of the low price, but the excellent quality. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were very dates and smelled old, dirty and sweaty. Carpets and tile throughout were did not appear clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the beds, the shower fixture was great, and breakfast was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Is what it is. Small room, duct tape on the floor, taping down power cords...lower priced compared to Seattle. The free breakfast was pretty dang good though. Private parking lot is nice to have, and the front desk workers were polite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Have stayed many times. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. Free parking and Wi-Fi and easy location make it great .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel clearly was purchased from someone else and relabeled Red Lion (previously Bellevue Inn). It is in need of some updating, especially the bathroom in the room I stayed in. It was still a good value and I appreciated the facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Salmon Days Stay"
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large and comfortable. There is an on site restaurant which was quite good. The hotel is just off I 405N and was convenient to the airport, Seattle and Issaquah for the festival. I would gladly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel close to the Transit center in Bellevue"
The hotel was very nice and the staff was fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to SeaTac airport and Seattle"
First impression was that the stay would probably be so-so, however, we were very pleasantly surprised that the rooms (at least ours was, and I assume the others as well) were updated, clean, had the desired amenities, and the stay was quite a pleasant experience (other than it was raining cats and dogs, but we won't blame the hotel for that).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel for the price"
It is old and worn. But pretty clean. Decent place for the moneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but walls thin"
The room was very nice, clean, well appointed. The only draw back was that the walls seemed very thin as there was a group of about 4 young women who were in the room next to me, who used their room as a launch and crash point for partying. They were obnoxiously loud and made no attempt to be quiet in the middle of the night. Despite the thin walls […] that made the noise feel very close and loud, the hotel is a good value in Seattle, where rooms seem to be on the expensive side. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is older but very cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very satisfied with our hotel stay at Red Lion. My wife and I came out here for a mini vacation and couldn't be happier. The room was cozy for the both of us and the bed was extremely comfortable. So comfortable that soon after we checked in we ended up taking a nap. The hotel is conveniently located next to everything that is no more than 5 […] minutes away. Also if you wanted to visit downtown Seattle its only about 15 minutes away but the only downside is taking the toll bridge over although there was no traffic on the bridge there is a fee.

"There are better choices in the local area."
Upon entering our assigned room, it looked fresh and appealing. As we settled in for our night stay, we discovered otherwise. While many of the furnishings are outdated including popcorn ceilings, the thing that got our attention as we prepared for bed was the condition of the bathroom, There was an abundance of mold in the bath caulk and in the bath […] and floor tile grout. Upon taking a shower, one was soon knee deep in water. We also discovered the water in the toilet was so high that one had to be very careful not to dip a hand (gross). But the big issue came as we turned down the lights to read before going to sleep. We noticed a large bug crawling up the wall adjacent to one of our beds . I struck it hard with two rolled magazines only to see it fall to the floor and disappear. That is when we noticed the abundance of dirt under the bed and near the wall/floor. I changed beds with my wife and we stuck it out for the night since it was about ten PM. Since we were pressed for time in the morning, we decided to have breakfast in the attached building only to discover that some fellow travelers were receiving complementary food while we were charged. Upon inquiry, the desk clerk explained that our room rate did not qualify for a free breakfast? He graciously adjusted our tab to compensate for our room and breakfast experiences. We are very experienced travelers having taken over 20 overseas trips and many more in the US, Mexico and Canada. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Loved the Red Lion in Bellevue. Staff very helpful. Rooms very nice. Close to our destination.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here about 4 months earlier and was pleasantly surprised as it was clean, a decent price and conveniently located. That has changed. Had to move from my first room because it smelled of urine. In fact the whole building smelled. The second building wasn't much better and there was a pile of trash at the entrance. The second room did smell musty, […] but it was clean. The saving grace of the hotel is its staff. Kayla at the front desk was particularly helpful and comped us our first night due to the smell issue. We found out from the shuttle driver that the hotel is for sale and they have let a lot of people go. It's a shame because their people are the only thing this hotel has going for it. Probably won't stay there again... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Red Lion Hotel Bellevue I appreciate you taking the time to comment about your stay. I apologize for the issues you experienced with the condition of our rooms, as that is not what we expect our guest experience to be. Unfortunately, the Hotel is for sale, but that shouldn't effect the condition or experience you had. However, I am happy to hear that Kayla and our staff members were friendly and able to resolve the issue. We value you as our guest, and look forward to having you with us again soon.
