Nice views, comfy room

We enjoyed having the ground floor room with the sliding door, especially with our little dog. Nice size room and comfy bed. The bathroom was a bit small. The view from the restaurant/lounge was very nice. We had a pleasant experience with most of the staff. One of the front desk employees did not bother looking at our paperwork to see that we had a dog and threatened to kick us out for sneaking the pup in. We were compensated for it the next day. I would advise to make sure there isn't a convention there...it was a bit noisy but overall a decent experience.

Week in Olympia

We spent a week in Olympia visiting our daughter, son-in-law, and new grand-daughter. There were several hotel choices - some closer to our daughter's - but, this appeared to be a very nice hotel in a quiet location. We weren't disappointed! For an older hotel, it was very well maintained, rooms were very nice, very clean, and the staff was very friendly an accomodating. As others have pointed out, if not included in the room, the breakfast buffet leaves a lot to be desired for the price. Ours was included, so it was a good deal. The one thing lacking was a gift shop for buying items you may have forgotten, or any kind of a snack - even a vending machine would have been welcome. The next visit, we'll be staying here again!

You're in the heart of Olympia, but off to the side in a quiet, quaint part of the city.

Good Getaway

Quiet, backwater location that is centrally accessible to all important activities. Restaurant is good food and beer. For wine, choose your own. Have fun.

Comfort and cleanliness at an excellent price

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful visit at Red Lion. The views from the restaurant are wonderful. And it was really nice that the restaurant was open all day. The hot tub is outdoors and open seasonally and since we went in October so we weren't able to use it. Overall, we had a great stay and I would definitely stay there again.

Quality Burrito downtown on 4th is a wonderful place to check out. They had many vegetarian and vegan options and each item I had was fantastic. Try the vegan chicken tacos!

OK place with great view

On the hill overlooking Olympia, the Red Lion Hotel is fine, but not outstanding. Room looked out on Parking lot with no trees or bushes to break the view. But the view from the dining room, of the water below, was lovely.

Wedding weekend

We were up for a family wedding and stayed 2 nights. The only downside...The first night we had a challenging time finding a place to park that was close to our room, but we heard that every room was booked due to a Dog show. Otherwise the rest of our stay was excellent. We liked our room and found the bed the most comfortable of any motel we've stayed in. The Restaurant looked out over the lake. Lovely. The buffet was small but excellent and had a great price. The staff was courteous and helpful. The maid service was excellent. We would not only stay here again but would recommend this motel to any of our friends and family in the future.

clean, comfortable!

The hotel is older, but the room didn't appear outdated. Friendly staff, comfortable beds and a clean room that wasn't overpriced. The only negative was some very narrow stairways, if you take stairs! We will definitely stay again.
