"Everything you need for a Great Getaway"
Obviously this Red Lion has been around for quite awhile and undergone some renovations, but it has everything that is expected of a quality, modern hotel. We attended a function in the ball room downstairs and stayed the weekend. Good location, on a small lake, great staff, good food in the restaurant. We had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was average and comparible to other 3 star properties. Nice grounds and view of the lake from rooms at the back of the hotel. Evening desk attendant at check in was extremely friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a downtown activity."
I needed an moderately priced hotel close to downtown for a weekend event I was attending. This facility was perfect. Very quiet and secluded.Genuine Expedia guest review
"COMFORTABLE CLEAN & QUIET"
Here for a week stay. I have nothing negative to say whatsoever about the cleanliness & comfort of the hotel. Everyone was professional and courteous. The Restaurant service was relaxing and atmosphere of the servers are very welcoming. I will most definately recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not at the standards of most Red Lions I have stayed at. Food ok, smelled super musty in our room, not able to regulate the heating cooling system. Needs some upkeep for sure.Genuine Expedia guest review

The name Red Lion means to me affordable quality. I did not find that here. The hotel looks nice enough but in my room I found some issues. First off I snoop into everything so I was suprised to find that the ice bucket was full of water. I reported that to the front desk as I was leaving to meet with my mother and was assured it would be taken care […] of. When I returned the young lady from housekeeping personaly appoligized to me, which was nice. I was then looking at the 2 water bottles on the desk and as I was reading that they cost 2.00 each (something that should be included don't you think?) I noticed that one of them was missing the plastic seal and was in fact open! I took this to the front desk and was advised that I would not be charged. I then went in for dinner and sat in the lounge area. I had the lobster and crab melt which was very good but I did notice that though the chairs were rather comfortable they really needed to be recovered. They just looked shabby. Back in my room I steped out onto the patio to walk the grounds as I was on the ground floor, I noticed a paper cup on the air conditioner full of water and ciggerett butts. Now I do smoke and respect non smoking rules but the staff should really look at ALL areas of a room before calling it clean. Removing the grimey handprints from the glass would be nice too. All in all I would think twice about staying again and really had higher expectations from a Redn Lion Inn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Older, but generally well kept. Heat/air conditioner unit in room, extremely loud and strong forced air, lack of accurate thermostat control, i.e. did not shut off. Wireless internet compimentary and worked well. TV dated, but okay for casual use. In quite business/residential area. Requires transportation to go anywhere. Okay for a short stay or conference/business […] tavel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good hotel, especially for traveling with pets"
This was the best maintained Red Lion I have been to. Room was very clean, staff was great. Would definitely recommend, especially for people traveling with pets.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was greeted at the front desk and without delay, had my room keys.The clerk at the front desk as well as the bartender and waitress at the restuarant/lounge were both friendly and efficient. Everyone seemed glad that I was there. In short, everyone made me feel welcome. In addition, the view from the bar/lounge was great and both the room rate and […] the food / beverage charges were very reasonable. Next time I travel to Olympia, I will stay at the Red Lion.

"Convenient & close to the freeway"
The hotel itself was very nice and the staff was pleasant. We unfortunately stayed on a night that they had parties going on in the banquet rooms. Our room was relatively close so our door was constantly being pushed and jiggled with the intoxicated party goers. The banquet breakfast the next morning was definitely not worth the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in a great location"
The hotel was comfortable and clean and the staff were courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is great place for family vacation. excellent location and superb facility. Highly recommended for family vacation hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable with a view"
I had to stay here during Thanksgiving weekend for business. The location was tough to find at first, but overall, everything went well. The staff was very friendly and the room service was wonderful. Thank you. I will definitely come back when I return to Olympia Area for business.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what it used to be"
The Red Lion is definitely showing some age. While the location is perfect and the people are friendly, the hotel is in DIRE need of some renovations. The rooms are musty and uncomfortable. For such a prime location they should provide a better quality establishment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to freeway and Mall."
We had a nice big room on the ground floor. Very animal friendly. The only drawback was the mattress was much too soft. The lady who checked us in was very sweet--it is nice to see a senior hired. Thank you,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and bar"
Older hotel. Room was dated, but comfortable. No refrigerator or microwave in room. Good location with easy access to highway, shops, and restaraunts. No restaraunts in walking distance, but has a restaraunt and bar in the hotel which we ate at and thought the food was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For it's location and price, beautiful lobby and I wish we would have had a room on the "view" side, make sure to ask! That overlooks the water, we looked directly at a building making our room very dark. Beds were probably the most comfortable I have been at a hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really nice facility and room"
I was just here for a quick overnight on my way north, but during the short time I spent, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the facility was. My room was very comfortable and super clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great hotel. The beds were very comfortable. My only complain was that the room smelled a bit moldy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice Hotel. Initially hard to find. Visible from the freeway on the second pass. Great location to everything in Olympia. A little old, but the best in town.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient to Evergreen State"
Hotel is in a lovely location and convenient to Evergreen State. I stayed here taking my son to college. Staff were pleasant. Room comfortable. I will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
After a busy day, its a great place to come back to. This Red Lion is my go-to hotel in Olympia.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location...needs some maintenance work."
We've stayed at the Red Lion before and had a great experience. This time, we found it lacking. Hair on the bathroom floor, clothing tags under the edge of the bed on the floor and the paint and bathroom door needs some general maintenance. Maybe it was just the room we had this time????Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't get room with pass through to adjoining room! Doors are not soundproof.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rose, a desk clerk, was particularly helpful. Pool was good. Restaurant good. Upgrade to a balcony view room. It was worth it!Genuine Expedia guest review
OkayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was ideal for us as we were only staying two nights before getting our flight home from Seattle. Only an hours drive. The hotel is well situated for visiting other local attractions and a short drive to the coast. The conference facilities seem excellent so the hotel is suitable for all types.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very satisfied. Setting was very attractive, employees were very helpful, The TVs in the room could be updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great place to stay!"
Stayed for a week due to a baseball tournament. The beds were comfortable and the facility was awesome!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Such excellent service and a great location"
I was not too impressed with the "newness" of the carpets and hotel interior as I arrived, but my opinion of the place went higher and higher as I stayed. The staff was excellent. I asked for a microwave oven and it arrived in minutes. The employee who delivered it and set it up refused a tip. I discovered in the morning that I had forgotten to bring […] an antiperspirant. I called room service and had one in less than one minute. The bed was very comfortable, and the buffet breakfast in the morning was wonderful and less than $7.00. The next time I go to Olympia, I will stay here again. No question. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A-1 on the Jukebox"
Comfortable, beautiful. Only downside, walls a little thin. Highly recommendedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoy the happy hour, Friday. Prime rib and the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
was fine except for the food prices were too high, plus $2.00 for one bottle of water wse outrageous, we went to Target got 24 bottles of 3.97, hallways were pretty hot and screens on the windows wouldhave been nice to have. otherwise, was pretty good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super Fluffy Pillows!"
Came in for a friend's wedding in Olympia and stayed 2 nights. Parking is great with plenty of trees instead of a concrete jungle. I loved the pillows they are super fluffy!Genuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable and congenial with quite a good restau"
We enjoyed our firt experience in a red lion. Only objection was the perpetual pop music both inside and ouside the hotel, inclusing the lobby. Restaurant and pool area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All was great. Great food too and staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved the stay at your motel. The entire motel was immaculate and the staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. I'd recommend your hotel to anyone traveling to Olympia.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable, excellent restaurant and room service. Memory foam mattresses were devine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One of the better Red Lions I've stayed in."
Usually I am skeptical about most Red Lions because they have been outdated and not remodeled to more modern standards. This Red Lion was a diamond in the rough in the fact that even though it hasn't had a major face lift, it has held it's beauty over time. The area where the hotel is located is beautiful. The view from the lounge is alluring and the […] drinks and food are good. The room was clean and spacious with good linens. If you are on a business trip, I would definitely recommend this hotel to prep for a meeting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quet and clean"
Quiet large room. No continental breakfast. Coffee maker in room could be better. Easy access from I-5 freeway. Check-in easy even though arrived around 1;00 AM on a Monday night.Genuine Expedia guest review
i reserved a king size bed and when i got there all they have was doubles. not very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really, I mean really needs updating"
Adequate stay. Not fancy, not dilapidated but just adequate. somewhat clean. Basement rooms in the north wing do smell a little musty and stale but certainly not unlivable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
In enjoyed my stay there, the rooms were very nice. The staff was cordial and polite. I was working construction and wasn't exactly looking like a high class roller and was treated very kindly. Thank you for that. When I stay at hotels I like to stay at a nicer hotel, and yours was a great stay. The staff in the lounge was very polite also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel had what we needed. It felt clean and comfortable. The walls were a little thin, since we could hear exactly when our neighbors woke up, and the windows are old aluminum (= noisy). The pool was fun, but shallow. And there is a hot tub. I don't know why that's not listed or maybe I missed the listing, but there's no picture. Whoever picked out […] the bedspreads should be fired. The most important thing about a hotel is not having bugs, and there on the bedspread are bugs! in the design. Maybe they thought they were being funny? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved the surrounding trees and the pool. The suite we stayed in was roomy and convenient with two bathrooms. The breakfast was delicious and pleasant to be able to look over the landscape outside while eating. The only thing that I would suggest is adding a door between the living room part of the suite and the bedroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
