    Historical Traveler Reviews Red Lion Hotel Seattle Airport

    You Get What You Pay For!!

    from

    The 24 Hr. Shuttle was the only redeeming quality of this hotel. We checked in after midnight local time (3 am biological time) for a 1 night stay. Checked in with TONS of luggage for an Alaska cruise and was given a room on the 2nd floor w/ NO ELEVATORS. No one to help us carry our luggage up stairs and all the way to the back. They said the hotel was full and no 1st floor rooms were available. (I suspect it was more likely due to it being a priceline reservation). Sure couldn't prove it by me as we never saw more than 10 people the next day. The room smelled and their breakfast buffet the next morning was expensive for the pitiful selection.

    We asked the desk to call a taxi for us, but instead they called a towncar. It was OK..but I'm sure we paid twice the rate of a taxi. Priceline or not...never again!!

    Noisy Lion

    from

    The hotel is undergoing renovation. There are no parking space. The 2 days my family were there, we did not get any sleep. We could hear our neighbor upstair all nite long. We could here the kids in the hallways. Very bad experience. Would not recommend.

    The Good Times Are all Gone Now

    from

    The wife & I have stayed here in the past, and previously it has been a suitable accommodation. However, it is now to the point were it is a very marginal facility for the rates that are being charged. Specifically, the facility is located directly across the street from the airport. However, after calling for and waiting for their shuttle for over 20 minutes, we hired a cab to take us with luggage to hotel. At 2200 hours, there was a line of 6 persons in the main lobbly waiting for service and only 1 desk clerk - who was trying hard but was obvisouly inexperienced. In the room, the desk was sitting on top of the armrests of the desk chair - somebody had forgotten to measure clearances when ordering the newer, cheap chairs for the older desks. There was no lamp for the desk - the nearest being across the room and the cord would not reach. In the bathroom, controls for the comination bath/shower were loose, with the result that the hot water could not reliably be controlled. All-in-all, a formerly fine hotel that is cutting costs right and left with seeminly no one in control. My recommendation would be to consider one of the other hotels along the strip if service is important, or else just be prepared to accept whatever one gets and just hope for the best. Definitely not a three-star hotel at present.

    Wasn't Impressed

    from

    We stayed at the Red Lion Seatac before an Alaskan cruise in July. The rooms were old, and they did not seem very clean. I won't be staying here again.

    24-Hour Shuttle Only Plus

    from

    I stayed at the Red Lion Seatac for 1 night on a Park & Fly package. My room was huge and but overdue for renovation. It seemed as if the management thought that by putting new carpeting in the room it would make up for the dirty microwave, the over-caulked bathroom and the well-worn comforter. The restaurant next door was overpriced & as worn as the hotel. I'll stay at the Doubletree the next time I have an early flight.

    Just okay. Good for saving money.

    from

    Very average hotel. Not great condition, but adequate if you're out to save money. Smells kind of bad. Some holes in the comforter. Things like that. Very tiny TV's...bathrooms not so great, very tiny. Not your typical Red Lion, but close to airoport and cheap.

    Average.

    from

    Pulled in late one evening, prior to a morning flight. Was OK but nothing special. Easy to get to the airport.

    Don't waste your money on the breakfast there. Even for a hotel, it was very expensive for what we got.

    My Mistake

    from

    Booked the hotel for 3 nights due to the surprisingly lowER price compare to other hotels in the area. It was in the middle of ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE. Hotel is shabby...not Red Lion quality I expected. Broken and old. However, the yard was nice though.

    Infested!

    from

    I couldn't be more dissapointed with the Red Lion Seattle Airport Hotel. My family booked two nights in the hotel, one going to Disneyland, and one on the way home. Knowing that Red Lion Hotels generally offer above average rooms, and service, we were looking forward to our stay. However, the hotel was shabby and old. Our bathroom was dirty and covered in caulking and paint that the maintenence or remodeling crew did not have the sense to clean up properly. Although we had planned to have room service, the ajoining resteraunt did not have any kid friendly items on the room service menu, thus we ordered in a pizza. The next morning, we awoke to a room completed infested with ants! The floor was black with ants which had come in from the outside. There were so many ants you could not even walk anywhere on the carpet without stepping in them. When we complained to the management, we were offered a complimentary breakfast. After looking at bugs all morning, the last thing we wanted to do was eat! Upon our return, we entered a room which was so HOT that we had to immediately open the window in order to breathe. There was no air conditioning in the room. We sweltered all night and left after only about six hours in the room. I will NEVER stay at that hotel again, and may never stay at another Red Lion.

    Not Really a Red Lion but still OK

    from

    The Red Lion, hurriedly converted from a West Coast when we came, looked overdue for renovation. Our room had some paint peeling, but the restaurant was good and the lobby nice enough. Our building was unfortunately separated from the main, but by only a few feet. The location was good, especially for the excellent Museum of Flight, but the property really felt like the decent West Coast hotels rather than the added luxury you expect from Red Lion. This was in March 2003

    ... and Mount Hood, were stunning. Look at that list who could want for anything more?

    The wildlife was pretty cool too, I saw a marmot for the first time. They're funny little fluffy fat things that whistle. About the side of a big housecat and kind of like a cross between a guinea pig and a cat. Very cute. We spotted lots of different birds including a whole load of grouse - I almost felt like I was back in Yorkshire at that point.There were some lovely ...

Well we know now that it doesn’t always rain in Seattle (we’re yet to see a drop) and air-conditioning would certainly have been welcome during this ...

Tonight we opted for a night in a indian gaming casino on Muckkeshoot reservation just south of Seattle. They are happy to have people in RV's stay supposing that at sometimes they will come in and gamble and eat. We met the security guys that drive around and keep everyone safe and were able stay the night at no cost. We slept ...
