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.

"Cold shower until 4 minutes in..."
Other than cold water shower until 4 minutes int it, all else was great. LET THE WATER HEAT UP FOR A WHILE BEFORE JUMPING IN!~ :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean bathroom, comfortable beds; very helpful & pleasant front desk personnel.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a great hotel fpr the price and it was not to far from Seattle. The bathrooms were a little small but other than that I could not adke fpr a better stay for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We liked the pool - it was warmer than others and nice for adults and kids!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in the premium king room, which is nicely located to the inside and doesnt face the roads. It was quiet and the hotel service was very good. The rooms are clean and nicely maintained, although the hotel itself is a bit old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This Hotel Is Just Right"
I have stayed at the Red Lion a hundred times over the last 15 years. It's simply clean and quiet. You won't be dazzled by a marble bathroom but it will always be clean and full of fresh towels. The parking lot is great and always free.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"do it yourself"
No elevator, broken toilet, no rooms ready late on Saturday. The TV was awesome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, great parking, easy access to I405 and Bellsquare.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is located very nicely if your traveling our this area! Quick to get on the freeways and close to downtown Bellevue! Rooms are nice...I just prefer two queens to two double beds! Would definitely use Red Lion again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing I did not like was the location of the room, and the noise from the road and highway. I enjoyed the fact that they picked us up from the Transit Center, as we spent most of our time inSeattle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You will not be disappointed with this hotel, it is as one would expect, nice, clean, good parking, friendly service, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"So so hotel"
In general, it is a very normal hotel without any special advantages. Room is not clean and with bad smell, maybe it is our feeling.Genuine Expedia guest review
In regards to the room itself it wasn't a bad place to stay. Some minor issues with the AC not being ice cold despite being on 24-7. The pillows weren't all that great. The back sliding door didn't close all the way but me managed to lock it. However, the location of the hotel was great. This hotel is right off the 405 freeway and there are plenty of […] places to eat in the surrounding area. Downtown Bellevue and Kirkland are some places worth a stroll. Also downtown Seattle was about 15 mins. Considering the price and short distance of travel, this would be a place to consider. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not, bad, just okay..."
Nothing necessarily wrong with anything except that for the price, the Red Lion should continue to keep up it's entries and small touches top notch. Room was fine, but small things like a small crack in back of bathroom door, wear on doors and surroundings in hallways, etc. Restaurant had no atmosphere, but burger at bar was very good. Outside pool […] with no facilities, very small cramped workout room that looks the size of a guest room. Lots of parking, easy access to everything in Bellevue area.

"Over priced, dogs barked at night, towels missing"
As described. Didn't know pets were allowed in that hotel; some owner must had locked their dog in bathroom whole evening so the poor dog was crying and kicking the walls for hours. Of course we called the desk...nothing happened. After room service, day one we missed a bath towel; day one we miss a hand towel. The house keeper never checked on the […] coffee cups; so we had to go to the front desk to get cups every morning! Breakfast wasn't free; $12 per person to get some pitiful sausages, overcooked bacons and dry scramble eggs was't worthy. A few feathers were siting at the ground since day one until we checked out on the 5th day...and it was $179 tax fees a night! 5-star rate, 2-star hotel, 1-star service. Are you staying? Sorry, not me! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good location to downtown Bellevue"
a bit dated but clean and centrally located in Bellevue. Free parking is a big deal anymore. Price was good for Bellevue-Seattle area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older Hotel -- room updated"
The room was fine but the property itself was older. It was very nice to have a free shuttle to go into Bellevue. With the rain, walking between buildings was wet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very clean and staff was very nice. It would have been nicer if there had been elevators. Can be very hard to get up and down stairs at times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short stay in Bellevue"
Front desk were very courteous, even though it was late. Room itsellf was very clean and looked nice. Only complaint is minor: took a while to find the ice machine and no breakfast included in room price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple hotel in Seattle suburb"
We stayed in this hotel because it allowed 5 people to a room. That being said the quarters were extremely tight with the added roll-away. They also said they charge $15 a night for the roll-away which they waived when I complained about it. Other than the air conditioning not working well and the bathtub draining slowly the accommodations were just […] fine for us. Bellevue is a nice suburb and it's very close to get into the downtown area of Seattle. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Perfect place to stay for our weekend get-a-way .... location was easy access to the freeway, which quickly led us to downtown Seattle for the day...plus Bellevue is a great town too .... Great experience with both the hotel and restaurant ...... very friendly staff, very clean throughout the hotel, restaurant and room, comfortable bed ... we had the […] Premium King Room .... and a very fair rate with free parking. We will definitely be back and stay here for any adventures we have planned in the Seattle area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel - Good Location"
Stay was comfortable. Room was nice. Easy on off freeway. Good proximity to downtown area. Bed was very comfortable. Entry to the accommodation wings was frustrating. Key card only worked part time. Would stay again, and hope I could get into my room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good night sleep"
Why Pay between $250-$600 a night in downtown Seattle, when there is strange people walking around The Red lion was a good place to sleep and rest. I felt comfortable, parking was free and it was close to the office. Area was clean, pool was awesome. Nice friendly area. Definitely will stay again , if I come back to Seattle. JPGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location. Easy trip to Seattle downtown, Mt. Rainier and other points of interest. Restaurants and shopping nearby. Hotel needs some updating. Rooms were clean, but in need of updates. Kids loved to end each night with a swim in the pool. Overall a good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy Location, Nice Hotel, Easy In/Out"
We generally stay in this hotel when coming to the Seattle Bellevue area. The location is easy, the grounds have a tropical atmosphere, the room is clean with comfortable beds, and its easy to get in and out of the rooms without a ridiculous distance to go. IF there is one downside, it might be that the entry areas to the accommodation buildings could […] use some significant maintenance. Both in appearance, cleanliness, and maintenance of the key card entry (which frequently did not work - on multiple buildings). The staff was friendly and helpful and the stay was pleasant as usual.

"Hotel needs total remodel."
Rate is reasonable. Arrived on Friday and hallways from room to outside was dirty. Room was very quiet. Bed linens were queen size for a double bed. Wallpaper was peeling at floor and carpet was loose at door. Restaurant/bar and lobby staff were friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel was clean and the room was spacious. The only problem was the bathroom. It was very small and it didn't have the sink separate from the shower & toilet area. Since two if us were there for business, it was tough for us both to get ready in the morning without one of us having to do hair & makeup elsewhere in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not as good as expected"
The grounds and pool area are beautiful. The front lobby has a strong smell of a combination of wet dog and mildew. The bathroom is big enough for 1 person to turn around in, 2 people can not be in there at one time. The bathroom cabinet is from the 80' s with dings and peeling finish but has a granite counter top placed on it. There is no elevator […] access to the second floor. Our ice machine was broken so we had to trek to another building and climb a flight of stairs for ice. The bed was very comfortable and the front desk clerk was very nice.

Friendly service and clean rooms. Slightly outside of Seattle, but not bad. Although I did book a room for 4 people and only recieved a room With one king bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here while on a trip to see the Mariners play. Very comfortable bed but the bathroom could have been nicer. Staff was great and food at Jonah's was delicious!!!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Affordable, comfortable and convenient"
We chose this Red Lion in Bellevue for our weekend on the west side as it was the perfect location for attending a Saturday wedding in Carnation WA and visiting family in North Seattle on Sunday. The fabulous morning breakfast, next door at Jonah's, was nicer than a continental breakfast (included in our room rate), and after the afternoon wedding we […] were able to retreat to the outside pool where our grandkids joined us. The king size bed was comfortable and our room was neat and clean. Shopping and fine restaurants are just around the corner, additional reasons why we choose to rebook here when we venture over to the Seattle area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice pool, close to great restaurants"
The staff was very helpful and accomodating. The hotel needs a little renovation but clean rooms and great pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
Why spend 200+ for a room in Seattle when you can stay at the Red Lion in Bellevue, the location is amazing, parking is free and it took us 20 minutes or less to get to Seattle and surrounding neighborhoods.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"4th of July"
Clean and reasonable priced room. Easy fwy access , near many eaters and shops. Quite facility and very well aired rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great hotel with great staff"
I have to give credit to the houskeeping staff at this hotel. While on vacation, my daughter caught a tummy bug and ended up throwing up in the middle of the night. (ugh) The housekeeping staff was FABULOUS about helping us out in the middle of he night cleaning, and bringing llots of extra bedding and towels. The swimming pool was great, heated, and […] very clean. We also really enjoyed having Jonah's Restaurant right next door. We enjoyed their yummy breakfast buffet every morning at a very reasonable price. (Kids 6 and under ate for free) We spent 3 days here and traveled to Seattle each day for activities, so the location was great. Still close to Seattle without the Seattle hotel price. We would definately stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bellevue red lion."
I could hear doors shutting most of the day. Didn't bother me at night cause most of the guest were already in there rooms. For the price I figured we would have a free breakfast but that was not the case. $10.50 per person at the buffet.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had spent most of the week staying at another similarly priced hotel in Bellevue that had been booked as part of a business trip, and the Red Lion was head and shoulders above it. It's located on the better side of I-405, so you can walk to many restaurants and Bellevue Square. The room itself was very clean and was recently remodeled. Parking was […] good, and quite close to our room, which was great as we were traveling with a toddler who had lots of accessories. Overall a great value for money relative to the other options in the area! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice facility, well maintained, well situated"
Conveniently located, easy access to main streets and freeway. Did not interact with staff except checking in and out which is good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"COMPETELY LACKING IN QUALITY IN A GREAT LOCATION"
Everything about this hotel exept the location was lacking. This is a almost completely antiquated property - it has dirty bathrooms with older components and mold growing obviously around the wax-seal of the tub. The vanity/tub/commode were/appeared to be very old. The coffee maker was old and inadequate. In short, this property tracks on the level […] of a 1 star hotel except for it's location. The price was completely out-of-line with the poor accomodations. Very pricey. But for the location, this place is a glorified motor-lodge from the 80s. I am not demanding but under the circumstances and given the price, this place is sad. NEVER again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
1, roll away bed was not in room as requested 2. key card did not work on outside door to building 3. Hotel charged $ 2.00 for coffee in the lobby (room was equipped with coffee maker though)... have never encountered this before in any hotel in which we have stayed !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"cut corners on services"
Two day stay with no replenishment of shampoo or soap. Room partly re-made on second day. Paid more for second day than for first day but fresh sheets were not provided for second day stay. Would not recommend this hotel chain to anyone and definitely will never stay here again. Old motel complex that needs replaced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
