Red Lion Hotel Seattle Airport

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There was quite a bit of molding in the bathroom and the bathroom had no window or ventilation. The wallpaper was wrinkling as well. There were holes in the ceiling in the hotel hallways and the elevators were awful! Hotel staff was a bit unkind and several of the men working there near the entryway would stand outside gawkin at us (two women). You can’t order to your room. The restaurant next door was not the best either, but the staff there are kind. I do not recommend this hotel and will not be returning.

Quick overnite stay before early flight, very convenient to SEATAC, I could walk to terminal from hotel. Hotel was entirely acceptable, better than many hotels at Sea-Tac. Parking looked like it might be a problem but I didn't have to park a car. Free breakfast was available at 6AM but my flight required I leave before then.

This was probably one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in. The building is a little old but it has character. There were no bed bugs at all and the rooms were very clean. The staff never bothered us once during our 4 night stay. We prefer it that way and that our stuff is undisturbed the entire time until we leave. I’ve had my laptop stolen or spilled on many times before so this is very big for me to rate a hotel now ! Very friendly and helpful desk staff! The only problem was some sort of fragrance on one of the pillows made my eyes burn and as usual the hotel towels are super stiff but that’s just the problem with the heavy detergents they use or something. Solid experience, I will use red lion again!

Convenience, good location, shuttle 24h and fast, staff friendly.

The hotel was nice, although when I was booking online I never noticed anywhere that you had to pay for parking. It’s around fifteen dollars a day which would have been nice to know before I booked. Also there was no air conditioning in my room which was fine as the outside temp never got above seventy but the room itself at night got stuffy, uncomfortably so. They did have a temperature unit on the wall that I tried to turn way down but it was pretty old and I don’t think it was for air. Altogether the room was lovely and the hotel and staff were extremely nice. I would visit again.

Our stay great with one small problem. There was a light switch near the bathroom door and witch turn the tv receiver off and it would take about ten minutes to get the tv back

If you r finding a very cheap and comfortable hotel then I want to recommend this "RED LION HOTEL" I was there from March 18th to 19th 2018 and I am very satisfied about this Hotel. Very close with transportation just 5mins work away from this hotel and you can move any place include the downtown of Seattle also International airport or Boeing Museum.

The rooms was clean, big and a 60” tv. Shuttle service to and from airport was great. I’ll be back!!

super comfortable bed; nice room; 24 hour airport shuttle; staff very pleasant and helpful; restaurant directly on the grounds

It’s quite convenient place to stay if you’re on business. The room air conditioning isn’t adjustable in the room only heat from central ventilation. Sleep with our window open. The room is quite roomy the bed is comfy. To our surprise there is a slice of pizza left behind the drapes. Don’t know how clean is our bed poor housekeeping

An excellent experience - will stay there again. Liked the easy walking distance from airport to hotel. Was quiet and the shuttle was prompt in the am.

This is a difficult review to write. The rooms were quiet, clean, and up to date. The staff people were helpful, patient, and cheerful. BUT the first room had a broken faucet, the second room was already in use and messed up, and the key code didn't work for the third room. During the second stay (yes, we had two reservations) the key card code was switched twice during our stay. Sooo, I am discouraged about recommending or reserving again--looking for smooth stay, not irritation.

Perfect location if your in transit or catching a flight out of SeaTac. The room was clean, but pretty basic...nothing fancy. No real complaints. Overall, a good experience.

Surprise! Parking will cost an big additional fee. Orbitz website won't tell you that, and hotel staff doesnt care that you weren't told in advance. You're on your own, and this is on Orbitz.

We needed a hotel which was close to the airport. The Red Lion's shuttle ran more often than other hotel shuttles we'd taken. We were greeted by friendly staff and the check in was smooth and quick. The room was spacious, bright and clean. The internet was fast. There were restaurants within walking distance.

Room was good. Breakfast was very lacking. Restaurant and bar closing at 9 pm first 2 nights. Karaoke 4 nights or so a week. Not what I want after a long day on the road.

Free breakfast not great Bed comfy Window needs to open all the way Shower nice and hot Convenient microwave and fridge Overall okay stay

Clean, great room and price .. lovely staff bummed that orbits is forcing me to write a lengthy review .. the hotel was great ... jeez... give me a break Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxcccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

WE WERE LEFT AT THE TOP FLOOR OF AIRPORT WITH A DOG AND LUGGAGE AND A PERSON THAT NEEDED A WHEEL CHAIR NOT GOOD THE ELDERLY NEED TO BE DROPPED AT THE FLOOR TO CHECK IN. .
