Stop Milking this Cow!!

OK, it has a nearly perfect location within walking distance of SEATAC, or SEA if you prefer. From there on down, it is downhill. The staff is good enough, but not plentiful enough. The hotel is dark, hasn't been renovated in at least a decade, and is attached to a restaurant that makes A&W seem modern. The waitresses are friendly, and the food is average. The place is so dark, old fashioned, and depressing that it is nearly an IHML zone by itself. It is well worth taking the free shuttles to a more cheerful, well-lit, and modern facility.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Thirteen Coins, a nearly famous 24 hour eatery is just down the street. Stay away from the fancy stuff on their way to large menu, but enjoy the simple fare that is super good, and prepared in front of your eyes (if you sit at the counter in the very fancy seats).

Worn Out Hotel Close to Airport

Although this hotel has a great location within walking distance of SEATAC, that is about the only thing it has going. It is obvious that the owners have been milking this cash cow for many years. The hotel is worn out, in desperate need of updating, and just seems kind of like the traveling salesman no amenity hotel that it is. With the many shuttles available from nearby hotel, I would pass this one by given a chance to do it all over.

Vacation stop over

Good hotel if you are looking for basic amenities. Very close to airport but confusing directions getting to freeways and coming back to your hotel.

Overall nice but...

My over all experience was very nice, but for one thing. I was pretty upset at arriving after calling two hours prior to my arrival to find that the room I had reserved 2 weeks prior was not clean and I had to wait an hour for them to clean it while I was dead tired. The room however was excellent, comfortable, well worth the money, and clean, very close to the airport, the staff was very nice and apologetic about the room not being ready.

Comfortable, clean place to sleep

My dad and I stayed at this hotel upon arriving at SEA at 10:30pm the night before a week-long cruise to Alaska. The hotel shuttle, driven by an out-going young lady, picked us up after a very short wait and drove us the short distance between the airport and the hotel's front door. We were looking for a short commute between the airport and hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. Hotel staff helped me arrange town car transportation to the cruise ship pier. A computer with internet access was available in the lobby. Breakfast was available at an an adjacent restaurant. Dad and I were quite satisfied with our choice of the Red Lion Seattle Airport.

Decent Airport Hotel

Stayed here on a weeknight during a 1-day business trip. The hotel is somewhat older (about 30 years), but has been reasonably maintained. The bathrooms are cramped, and despite a new shower curtain, and shower head, the tub/shower shows its age, and the drain stopper had long been replaced with a rubber $1 rubber stopper. The adjoining hotel offered a decent breakfast menu, plus a bland buffet. In the mornings they operate multiple airport shuttles, so service was very prompt. Despite my comments, I might stay here again.
