Red Lion Hotel Port Angeles
Travel Blogs from Port Angeles
After our long bus ride to Victoria, we did manage to fairly quickly get a cab to our hotel, The Rialto . . . when picking this particular property out . . . I had no idea it was across from City Hall . . . and a couple of blocks from Chinatown . . . and on one of the main drags . . . a really nice place.
We had breakfast at The Rialto …
Port Angeles, WA I review the map and I can make my "destination" in one day. The weather dictates that I leave today to reach my destination in time. The interstate was designed to just that, go from one state to another. We will not see Oregon intimately. Once Navi announced the mileage on Interstate 5, Bonnie and I settled in for some high speed …
I sat on the balcony this morning and watched a tiny little harbor boat push a huge freighter out to sea. It was just unbelievable. The water in the harbor must be very, very deep to handle ships this large. I also spent more time being extremely curious about the marine animals swimming around in the bay. Kip finally spotted it today (so I was …
Sleeping with the balcony door open was fantastic, until about 7:45 in the morning when the freighter in the harbor let out a totally uncalled for bone-rattling horn blast that sent me into a kung-fu pose atop the bed. Kip recovered more rapidly than I and fell quickly back to sleep. I spent the next half hour on our balcony watching a man search …
I got up at 6:00 a.m. to do what I should have done days before ~ pack my suitcase for the trip to Seattle, which starts today! I like packing; it's the preparation of the clothes TO pack that I can't stand. This may explain why I was loading wet clothing into the dryer in the wee hours of the morning and frantically trying to decide how many …

Historical Traveler Reviews Red Lion Hotel Port Angeles
I paid the extra few bucks to have an ocean view, the result was a first floor room separated from the ocean by twelve feet of grass, eight feet of path and some shingle. The room was as comfortable as any I ever stayed in and the facilities were all up to scratch. The coffee making facilities worked. The wireless internet was a professional installation (multiple APs within range at all times) and the speed was decent. The staff were very pleasant and good humored, checkin was fast and efficient. The parking lot had plenty of convenient space and was well lighted.
My husband and I stayed at the Red Lion P.A. over Memorial Weekend. The view room w/2 Queen beds was priced at $169/nt. If not for the view, I would have considered the room to be very over-priced. Upon arrival, the room did not seem very clean, old food stuff on carpet and mirrors and all glass in bathroom unclean. Added to the general appearance, the room did not smell fresh. I had to request housekeeping to come and clean the sliding windows as they were obstructing the view. I am not hard to please, but one thing I can't tolorate is an un-clean room with unpleasant oders. The general housekeeping of the hotel was not up to par, hallways needed to be vaccumed, windows washed, etc.
I rate this hotel 4 out of 5 simply because of the location. We needed a place to spend the night before we crossed to Canada on the ferry, which left at 8:20AM, and used priceline. We got a fare rate, lower than the best rate. Though the room wasn't the best, and we had no view, it was late and we just wanted some rest. But parking was only 5 dollars a night, less than the lots, and the walk to the ferry was only about 3 blocks. Overall, it was a fine experience. The room was clean, and that's really all we need.
Great Location and Great Value
When we visited the Seattle/Olympic Penninsula area on our Honeymoon we stayed at the Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles, Washingtong. The hotel room was enormous and the rate was excellent. We were 25 feet from the water with a great view of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and yet we were only minutes from the beautiful Olympic Mountains. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a base of operations for exploring the Olympic Penninsula.
Would stay there again. Room was huge. Next time I will pay the extra for the water view-it's worth it.
We stayed here for 2 nights in late August. The hotel was clean, the room was plain, and everything was as it would be in an average 3 star hotel. The view however, is astonishing. We had the 2nd floor balcony room overlooking the water and the sunset. Absolutely stunning.
We didn't want to stay at a Bed & Breakfast, and this seemed to be the only "major" hotel in the city. We reserved a Queen waterfront room for $99 per night in mid-May. (We wanted a King, but surprisingly there were none available.)
OK stay in Port Angeles
We stayed at Red Lion Inn, Port Angeles, during our trip to the Olympic Peninsula in early november 2003. There was a choice of harbor view ($10 more) and non-harbor view rooms - we chose the non-view room. Our room was slightly larger than average and was beginning to show its age (particularly the bathroom), but they were generally well maintained.
The large 27 inch TV was a plus. There was an outdoor hottub, although the outdoor pool was closed for the winter season. The adjoining seafood restaurant was a letdown though - food was subpar and prices too high. There are no shortage of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. We saved $10 over the walk-in rate by booking through their website online.
Home away from home.
Wonderful experience. People were very friendly and helplful. Price is half what you will pay at other area hotels that are not near as nice or centrally located. You bet I'll stay here again.
Red Lion overpriced
I wouldn't stay here again. Vastly overpriced for what it is. The first room was smelly and had an old used towel in the bathroom, and noisy folks next door. We moved and that room was much better - upstairs and away from the dock area. There has to be a better place in Port Angeles, just for the night while waiting for the early ferry!
