Not a whole lot has changed since it was a strip club A review of Red Lion Inn
We stayed in the Red Lion for one night and were quite disappointed.
The place used to be a notorious Victoria strip club and had burnt down the year before. We figured that after being renovated it would probably be OK. The lobby looked good and the staff seemed professional. Sadly it all ended there. We got to our room which was supposed to be equipped with a kitchen and was not. We were told that our booking agent had made a mistake and should have called them to confirm (even though it was marked on our reservation). Well, whatever, it was late and we didn't want to keep looking. The room itself was small and cramped with obviously the same furniture from the past glory days. We took a shower which alternated from burning hot (scalding) to cold. Taps constantly dripped. The place was clean but could really use a reno. All in all it was not worth the price, but probably wouldn't be too bad if the reno had continued past the lobby.
