Red Lion Hotel Redding

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel itself was great. No complaints whatsoever - pay for the breakfast option, easy & good. Parking was a breeze, but they were very careful to warn everyone about the frequent break ins. My car was full of camping stuff, and we had no problem, but I was worried all night based on their warnings.

Ok hotel for price and location. It only has 2 floors, so no elevator. Our room was designated as non-smoking, but it did have a oder to it. This hotel is outdated and pictures online were deceiving.

I was impressed by the hotel staff. The front desk staff picked me up from the airport even though they were short staffed.

Coffee maker wasn't clean, still had used filter and half full carafe of coffee, air conditioning never cooled down the room, it was stuffy and had a funny smell

Very accommodating! Booked it on line............no issues!

...the hotel is comfortable and the rooms are spacious. The courtyard is inviting and the pool and hot tub are spacious and clean. Unfortunately, there were some new staff members (we have been to this hotel many times) that were less than helpful. There were long lines with only one person working the desk (on Memorial Day weekend!) And the breakfast is no longer included in the room charge - it is extra. First time in three stays that was the case. The staff was flippant about the change and unfriendly.

We requested (at the 800 central booking number) a ground floor room, handicapped accessible. That means no stairs, big bathroom with walk in shower and grab bars in and around shower and around toilet. When we checked in, they tried to give us a second floor room. We held out and got a first floor room, but it was not handicapped accessible. There were NO grab bars in the room, making it impossible for me to shower and difficult to use the toilet. The TV on screen guide was impossible, and seating in the room was so poorly placed that we could only see the TV from the beds. If they had not had a special pricing on this date, we would have rejected this room and gone elsewhere. The Redding,CA Red Lion used to be a classy place to stay. It no longer is. Also, it was storming that evening and the hotel outside of our room was freezing cold.

Convenient. Quiet. Comfortable. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Will come back if w go through Redding.e

Pleasant stay and staff was courteous. Why 50 characters ????????????????????????????????????

Consistent quality and value for a one night stay. Nice breakfast, clean room, everything worked.

Disappointed in room first night. Entered room and it smelled like musty mold. It was the shower curtain. Called and it was changed immediately. Room was not dusted around desk area, patio was dirty with food and wrappers, black business desk chair had food in ceases and we did not have shampoo and soap samples in room. Next day everything was cleaned. I was so tired I should have requested a different room. This was first time there was a problem. They only said sorry.

My stay was comfortable. The hotel is showing its age and will need to upgrade if it wants to compete with the other nearby hotels.

This hotel is a bargain. We spent a week here and we're so pleased with the staff, room/hotel amenities, and location in Redding. We will always go here when staying in Redding.

Staff at this hotel was great and rooms were very comfy!

would recommend this hotel enjoyed our three nights well be returning for seven nights in july

Myself and staff traveled to redding to provide rentals and services for a wedding. The hotel was a great place to stay and unwind during the working weekend. We will be staying there again for next events.

In a convenient location off the highway near some restaurants and shopping.

I have stayed here before, and given the seasonal price new it would be a good value. Met all of my expectations

Clean and quiet. Close to restaurants and shopping.

Had a good 2-night stay at the hotel. Rooms were clean, temperature was good, staff was nice. No elevator to get to the second floor but that wasn't a big deal. Convenient to have breakfast buffet at hotel.

great stay, seemingly "ok" location

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Great news, we have 93 downstairs rooms for those desiring the first floor. Often many people prefer downstairs, while others want an upstairs room. We're like most two floored hotels and do not have an elevator. We sincerely apologize about the odor and hope the Front Desk was able to find you a more suitable room. I am happy to announce we are undergoing renovations and refreshing our guest rooms. The pictures on Orbitz are outdated, but we will have no ones loaded once the renovations are complete. We hope to see you again soon. Take care, GM

adequate but not what we requested.

Dear Alice, Thank you for your review as all feedback helps us to improve. We are sorry your stay was less than satisfying and that there were areas of concern with your room. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee requests but we do have fully handicapped room types on our first floor that can be guaranteed. We hope you give us another chance in the future.
