"Lovely grounds; decent food; noisy and musty"
This hotel looks lovely and is set in a beautiful setting over the lake. However, it is the spot for high school athletic teams and can be quite noisy at night. We have stayed here many times as it is convenient to I-5 but this time our room smelled musty and almost like stale cigarette smoke. The staff assured me that the hotel was smoke-free but it […] was not pleasant. I would have had to wait in line again to change rooms so we accepted it. We had waited 20 minutes on check in after a seven hour drive. Despite the concerns, it is good value for the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet and comfortable"
On the way from Bellingham WA to Toledo OR we stopped at the Red Lion Olympia. We liked it so much we booked again on the return trip. The room was nice and big. Nice view from the lanai of the river. Comfortable beds and the Wifi worked. Good restaurant with good food at reasonable prices.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice room, cold coffee in the restaurant"
The room was very pleasant with a nice coffee table and sofa in addition to a very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows. They didn't have a luggage rack, but I set up the ironing board and used that. In the morning instead of making coffee in the room I went to the restaurant and purchased a cup to look at the nice view while I read the paper. Unfortunately […] the first cup was stone cold, the second cup it took 10 minutes to get cream with it so they took it back to microwave it, but unfortunately when they delivered it the entire cup was so hot for another 10 minutes that I could not put it to my lips. Finally, when I was done with reading the paper they brought a freshly brewed cup at an appropriate temperature and to their credit they gave it to me gratis. I would have rather had a nice cup of coffee when I arrived, but things happen. However, if your food isn't the right temperature, you would not be the first one :) Very quiet hotel, nice lobby and grounds. Too cold to use the pool but looked excellent.

"Decent but a little outdated"
I can really categorize the Red Lion as "just okay." Staff was fine and the facility was pretty clean. Restaurant was a better than what I imagine a Denny's would be like, though the coffee was substandard. Still, the restaurant had a full menu so this puts it ahead of other chains that just have the do it yourself waffle machines. Couple of weird things: […] couldn't get the thermostat to cool below 68 degrees and you can hear footsteps from above in first floor rooms. I guess if the location was super convenient, I'd stay again. It is next to the county court house so if I was unfortunate enough to have to go to court, this would be the place to stay.

"nice hotel, away from noisy streets; except some f"
the hotel is easy to get to. It is close to most places we wanted to go to. Except for the freeway noise it is a nice place to relax in. The noise from the hall ways is disturbing maybe they can put in some sealers along the door edges to cut down the hall way noise. The bathrooms could use some updating also.Genuine Expedia guest review

"outstanding... I'LL BE BACK"
GREAT ROOM.. GREAT PEOPLE AND SERVICE.. ONE OF THE BEST ROOM SERVICE FOOD I'VE EVER HAD.. YOUR COOK SHOULD GET A BOUNCE.. and no I'm not related to the cook.. Bottom line we need a hotel like this in southern calif.. again I'LL BE BACK.. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Front Desk was very friendly, check in and out very smooth! pillows were very fluffy! there was a little noise that could be heard from the hallway just normal sounds doors opening and closing, conversations of people walking by, not sure why the rooms are not better built to keep that kind of noise out. Other than that it was a clean room, very nicely […] decorated, the hallway seemed antiquated compared to the décor in the room, shower water pressure was on point! It was a little pricey for the room with no breakfast included and the room service menu was pricey as well, location was great near everything I needed I would stay there again if I could find a better rate or deal Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful short stay"
We enjoyed the pool and outside area a lot. Beautiful landscaping.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good bed. that's about it."
The bed was the most comfortable I've seen in a long time and the room was incredibly clean. That's the end of the good. We were given keys that didn't work on the outside doors, the wrong room number, and the room was incredibly noisy. I loved that we were in a quiet, business area, but we heard every single neighbor going in and out of their rooms. […] I feel bad for myou neighbors who had to hear my crying child. That's why I look for quiet hotels, so they don't have to hear my son. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Another good stay"
I like this hotel. It's a nice place and quiet. In the middle of what seams like a year long re-model. Food is really good, prices a little high.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, a bit aged"
The hotel is nicely located but still close to the I5 and 101. The staff is helpful and friendly. Our standard room was relatively roomy and had fridge and microwave which is nice if you travel with small children. The interior of the hotel is partially a bit outdated and might need so remodeling. Although the breakfast was not included in our rate, […] there is a buffet for $8 which is very reasonable.

Although an older building, the food and service were amazing. I will be back. Lee the waiter was the best that I've seen. Thanks for a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"lovely and convenient"
I regularly travel to Washington state for extended periods, and I have come to think of this hotel as my home base. It is clean, comfortable, and well-staffed. With a small serviceable restaurant and a good bar, it is self-inclusive -- on days when one has spent a full day out it is a good place to unwind at the end of the day. There were workmen about […] during my most recent stay, changing the locks on the doors. This was a bit inconvenient, but the staff did everything they could to minimize the disruption. It has all the things you need in a hotel for business, but at one notch above more basic chains. After looking around, I would rate it the nicest place to stay in Olympia, which does not have its own luxury hotel. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice rooms - bad service at the hotel restaurant"
The hotel is clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the stay in the room. The service in the hotel restaurant was horrible on multiple days and I don't consider myself a picky person. I waited 45 minutes after sitting down just to get a drink on one day. I eventually placed my food order through the bartender. The waitress walked by me multiple times. I knew […] she was busy, so I gave her a lot of understanding, but 45 minutes is a long time to get a drink and place a food order. I spoke to other guests and they mentioned a similar bad experience. Room service is better, because they have to acknowledge you over the phone, but room service cuts off at 10pm, so if you want a late dinner you have to go to the restaurant directly.

"Quality of service decreasing."
This is the forth year that I have stayed at this hotel. Each year, the service decreases. This year only one key per room was provided, regardless of the number of persons staying in the room. Service was slow, and the restaurant was understaffed with employees scrambling to keep up with customer demands. It appears to be poor management.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff were helpful and personable, very polite. The restaurant staff was tired, un- attentive and not interested in us. The food was below par - again - tired and didn't seem important.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Whoop Whoop Red lion Rocks"
Great place good food comfie bedsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing we could suggest an improvement on is the plumbing. The toilet stopped up under a normal usage, and the tub drained very slowly. Maintenance came and unclogged the toilet immediately, and I advised the front desk of the tub drainage situation, immediate action was promised.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome in all the MOST important ways"
Rooms are a bit dated and plain, BUT everything else was MUCH better than what I usually experience. LOVE this hotel, will come and stay here again for sure. Both AC and heat worked GREAT! The food was good, the room was spotlessly clean, and large, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. No problem parking. Overall BEST hotel I've stayed in in a […] couple years and I travel about once a month. Thank you Red Lion! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The only place I stay in Olympia"
This hotel is somewhat secluded, you definitely need a car. If you are there on a weekend it is very peaceful and in a safe area. Handy access to I-5 and Hwy 101, the downtown area and the westside. The people who run the hotel are super nice and very professional. The hotel is tastefully updated, very clean and comfortable. Food service is available […] although I didn't eat there due to other plans. Definitely the best hotel in the area. Too many transients downtown. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quiet, comfortable, clean with very helpful staff"
The buffet breakfast is a great deal, and the restaurant has a lovely, calm view. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Bring an extension cord to remedy the only downcheck - a lack of well-placed power outlets.Genuine Expedia guest review
The food was terrible .Everything at the bar was over priced and service EXTREMLY poor. The cleaning people were nice and did a great job. The rest of the people talked too much and did too little.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet, clean, comfortable"
Red Lion Olympia exceeded my family's expectations. We arrived at 1:00 p.m. and were permitted to check in early, which was a huge help. Room was clean and comfortable and the restaurant was especially outstanding. We ate a number of meals at "fancy" restaurants during a 4-day trip and the Red Lion's restaurant compared very favorably, especially when […] considering its price and convenience.

"Trip to Olympia to move our Mom into nursing care"
We were in Olympia to move our Mom into assisted living. When my mom was sleeping, weh ad to go back to her apratment to clean it out and thought she would stay aslep. She left the room and went to the lobby and was helped by a young man who works there. He bought her a soda and made sure she made it safe back to our room. He also called us to let us […] know. Thank you, thank you, thank you...We will always stay at Red Lion when we go visit Olympia. You have exceptional help there and we only wish we knew his name so we could have thanked him personally. Red Lion is the best! Craig and Sheryl, Eugene Oregon Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniently located on lovely grounds"
Staff were great. Room was clean, beds comfortable. Bathrooms were clean and stocked well. Standard room amenities, had everything we needed. Location was convenient to capitol and downtown as well as to shopping/restaurants and to freeway...yet had a very resort like setting with trees and grass surrounding the hotel. There was an on site restaurant […] and bar which were classy but comfortable with good and friendly service. The hallways and stairwells in the wing we stayed in could use some updating but not that important. Overall the hotel was great. I would recommend it and I would stay there again.
