Upon arrival I was greeted by a very nice lady who upgraded my room to one overlooking the lake. I asked for champagne flutes to be sent to the room and she said she would call the restaurant and have them sent up. By the time I got to my room they were already there waiting for me. Clean and comfortable. A very nice hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fast from anywhere"
I enjoyed my stay because the staff was friendly, the room was clean, it was easy to find, and close to our business destinations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was almost hidden"
I lived in Olympia for three years and so had some idea where the hotel is located. That said, I had to use my GPS navigation to find the hotel. More signage, especially well lit signage, would be quite helpful. The hotel itself was excellent. The staff was wonderful, the hotel clean, quiet, and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved our stay - great for pets also, nice lounge and restaurant - perfect location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to The Capital and downtown"
My husband and I stayed one night for a family event. The hotel was very close to everything so that was the primary reason we booked there. The staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel has been there awhile and there have been some updates, but there are a few things that are a bit worse for wear. The bathroom […] was nicely updated and the king bed was acceptable (kind of high praise from me - I am fairly picky about hotel beds and prefer a little on the soft side). Some of the furnishings seemed a little mismatched but everything worked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was nice, and the hotel was cozy. However, the other guests were not respectful. We heard people running and screaming down the hallway all night long. After complaining about the people next to us having a party, the party still continued all night long.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a beautiful hotel that they have kept clean and up-to-date. It has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. The rooms were really nice and the cleaning staff did an terrific job of keeping them clean. The restaurant had an excellent breakfast buffet for only $7.95! All the staff were very friendly and professional. It was close to everything and very […] convenient. I highly recommend this hotel!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Freeway but quite"
Interesting business park. Almost had a college campus feel. Staff was friendly considering my late arrival. With my early departure I didn't use any facilities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most Helpful Staff"
My company rented out one of the conference rooms for a job fair. We kept asking the staff for things that we had not prepared for/ forgotten back in Vancouver. The staff was so helpful and while they may have been annoyed at our requests they did not show it. I would recommend anyone staying in Olympia to stay at the Red Lion :DGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service but hotel needs updating"
Best reception service ever by Sarah, she made our stay. Like most of all the Red Lion hotels we have stayed at, your rooms, especially the bathrooms need updating. Has a dated feel about the hotel, which is a shame because everything else was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near tennis facilities"
One of the nicer hotels in the Olympia area. Our destination was Tumwater for the tennis facilities, but this was the best hotel we have found in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
My room was quiet comfortable and the reservation was flawless . Great happy hour in the loungeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to The Evergreen State College"
Hotel looks to be from the 70's or early 80's but they do a nice job of keeping it new & fresh.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Red Lion Olympia"
Hotel was good for a one night stay. Good sized room, clean, comfortable bed. Hotel is older, but everything was in good working order. Price through hotels was fair value versus other hotels in the area that day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dated but nice"
My wife and I spent 4 nights there while visiting relatives nearby. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed having a restaurant and lounge on site. The décor is dated and while the rooms are now non-smoking, you can still smell that at one point in time there was smoking allowed. The outdoor pool was very nice but I am guessing not used much in a rainy […] climate like Olympia has. Wake-up calls are set by the front desk and were completed correctly on 3 of the 4 mornings we were there . . . luckily we woke up on our own and were not too late on the morning our call was missed.

"Clean, Comfortable and Quiet"
The hotel was a bit hidden and off the beaten path, but it was very quiet, clean and the rroms were very comfortable. The only issue we had was that although we reserved 7 rooms a couple of weeks in advance, and I stopped by at 10am the morning we were to check in to make sure everything was set up, we still were not all allowed into our rooms until […] after 5pm! We had babies that needed naps, travelers that had been up almost 24 hours, and all we got was "sorry" your rooms are not all ready. As a matter of fact only 1 room was available until 4pm! Most of our 21 person party sat in their very beautiful lobby for 2 hours waiting for our rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"easy access to destination site"
The Red Lion staff was courteous and welcoming. The facility appears to be well-maintained. The bed was comfortable, but there could have been another chair in the room. Unless one elects to use the restaurant at the hotel, one is obliged to travel a few miles for dining facilities. It is a good, clean place, and I would stay there again if the Olympia […] area is my destination. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful rooms, comfortable, clean, quiet"
The hotel itself was wonderful. My only complaint was that we were told we couldn't check in at 3:pm (we had booked a total of 7 rooms) It was well after 5pm before we all got into our rooms. Also, was told by the man behind the counter that there were no connected rooms in the hotel... And there were and we were booked into one of them. To book that […] many rooms, a couple weeks in advance, to request a couple sets of connected rooms and to request early check in since we had small children that needed naps... and then to not have all of the rooms available until after 5 was very dissappointing. The staff behind the counter were not helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for a week at Red Lion, the room was cleaned every day, with fresh towel, soap if we needed it . The restaurant bar and staff was very nice. We bought a couple bottles of wine at the bar to take to our friends home for dinner and they were very accommodating. We would stay again at Red Lion.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had reservations way ahead of time, but no room was available for us until it was too late for us to shower & get ready for a wedding reception!! The rest of our party got rooms right away!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Red Lion Hotel Olympia I appreciate you taking the time to comment about your stay. I apologize for the issues you had at check in, as that is not what we expect our guest experience to be.

"Average experience for high end price"
Smoke free room reeked of smoke, everything worked, quiet settingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and relaxing without fido!"
Dropped in for a one nighter before a week in.olympia Nat. Pk. Big, clean room. Was not warned about dogs being a big part of their marketing. Barking and noises that are reserved for unhappy children. I suspect my wife's allergy upswing was due to animal dander in our room. Nice digs though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"recent 4 night stay"
This was the second time I have stayed at this particular property in the last 5 years. This time around the hotel seemed a little bit run down and I don't remember feeling that way about it last time. Our room was nice with a very comfortable bed and it was spacious. The bathroom not so much. Saw hair on the floor when we first got into the room so […] it obviously wasn't ours. Also, for 2 days running we came back to the room to find that it hadn't been made up. The first day I thought it was because we had left at about 1 in the afternoon and they had finished all the housekeeping for the day. However, the next day we left early in the day and when we arrived back late that night our room had not been cleaned. I called the front desk and they were apologetic but offered nothing other than someone willing to bring us some fresh towels. Perhaps my family will return to this property since we travel to Olympia often but I think next time I will look at other hotels first to see what they have to offer.

The king size bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. Our only complaint was the fact that our room was not cleaned and restocked between our two nights of stay. We would probably stay there again if in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sean was a great desk clerk"
He offered us directions and recommendations and was just generally nice to deal with. Very pleasant way to begin and end our stay at your hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Checking in was a bit long with only one Lady"
No View of Capitol Lake,as that is saved for the higher priced Rooms..Room was big & spacious with a large Bath & shower.. Going to breakfast was nice,except the waitress stopped me to ask if I had a room there,as I had my "BIBS" on.The Breakfast Restaurant over looked Capitol Lake and was very nice to look across it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My home away from home."
I stay at this Red Lion whenever I visit my son. For nearly every year since 2005, I have stayed at Olympia's Red Lion. I love the setting, the view and the remote feeling of the environment without actually being remote. I believe the carpet has been replaced in some areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were heading from OR to Victoria BC and this was our first night stay on the trip. My husband and I as well as our two young sons and my parents enjoyed two of their con joining rooms. The rooms were very large and very clean and comfortable. My husband and our 3 year old son enjoyed the pool very much. We loved it so much we tried to stay there […] on our return but they were all booked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We had a pleasant experience at Red Lion. Very Clean, comfortable rooms. Close to shoppingGenuine Expedia guest review
Bed was comfortable and pillow. I liked that they supply for shamphoo and conditioner. Just lame that a breakfast wasn't provided with the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
My fiancé and I stayed here over our Fourth of July holiday. Our primary destinations were Seattle and Olympic national park, however this hotel had a much better rate than Seattle hotels and it is right off the freeway. It was only an hour our so drive to Seattle. The hotel was clean and the bed was nice and comfy. The grounds of the hotel are very […] pretty and wooded with a nice view of the lake below. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel needing updating"
The outside was beautiful. The staff super friendly and helpful. The room had a bit of an odor, mabe like it once allowed smoking, even though the hotel is now non-smoking. The walls had marks everywhere, a simple paint job would have GREATLY improved the overall appearance(the furniture was beautiful). Longer pool hours for summer would be nice as […] it was PACKED at a few minutes until 10pm the closing time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We were surprised to find that this hotel was in a quiet residential / business area/ It was only 10 minutes from our destination. It was hot outside, but the room temperature was perfect for sleeping and remained that way all night.Genuine Expedia guest review

This Hotel was very nice and very user friendly. The staff were very nice and the room was excellent, the grounds were fantastic ! I would recommend this Hotel to my friends and family in the future.

Did have a little trouble finding […] it off the freeway, but thanks to GPS, it worked ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel just off I5"
It was incredibly noisy. complained and moved rooms at 1am. Couldn't!t eat in the restaurant too loud and waitress said it would tak 20 to 30 minutes longer for the food. We got the hotel with the restaurant so we wouldn't have to drive anywhere. Instead we had to find a restuarant. we will not return.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Red Lion Experience Olympia, WA"
Red Lion, Olympia, WA There was a huge convention on the weekend, so it is forgivable that we did not have the best experience. They did not have time to recuperate. Popcorn, gum rappers, and pine needles on the floor and the bed. The restaurant was out of the first 4 items my husband and I ordered. The clock did not work. But,on the up side the staff […] was wonderful, courteous and respectful. I am not sure that I would stay again...it was also a very noisy experience until 3 or 4 in the morning activity in the halls, next door, and upstairs. I could hear the man snoring in the room next door....Thank you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
