I have stayed twice at the red lion Hotel on Jensen Beach and both times on ordering wine I was presented with the incorrect year only to be told that this is all that they had rather than amending the menu I asked for a room close to the gym which was given to me however I was not made...

The room was updated and clean. There are a lot if planes flying over though, but the view of the river made up for it :) they had a room service flyer that you may hang on the door for breakfast to be brought up the following day, which the kids and I enjoyed. The only bad thing I would...

Our family (6 adults, 2 children) met at the Red Lion Jantzen Beach for my brother's birthday dinner. We live in the area. The hotel lobby and restaurant were lovely and staff were engaged and inviting as were entered. Huge windows overlook the Columbia River with amazing views. There were approximately 5-6 customers in the restaurant when we arrived. It...

Hi Teresa, I apologize on behalf of our restaurant for your recent disappointing dining experience. I can assure you that we have addressed the service issues with the lack of proper timing and long spaces between meals. It is important to keep on pace and also to ensure that the families are able to enjoy each others company rather than...

I stayed at the Red Lion for three nights last week. The room was excellent. Functioned and furnished wonderfully. We had a beautiful view of the river. The restaurant was also excellent. Our servers and the food were excellent. The restaurant has a great view of the river, too. I woke up early one morning (since I was still on...

Ok to stay; good access to streets, freeways, downtown district. Breakfast adequate, small dining area kept clean. Parking close. Currently undergoing exterior facelift, will look nice when completed.

Driving up it looks like a dated motel, and once inside that continues although they are being renovated. No valet/bell service but ample parking. Front desk staff not engaged at all...almost on remote. Housekeeping staff on the other hand were absolute delights and always friendly. Rooms are a bit of a hike and the elevator was intermittently working the days...

Great comfortable updated hotel; very good restaurant on property and other good restaurants a short walk away; great river walk below the hotel along local marinas on the Columbia River; staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We were not here for a conference, but there is great conference space here. Looked like a nice pool...unfortunately too cold to enjoy it.

This hotel looked like it would be a nice location if the weather is good. We had rain on a short 2 night stay. Restaurant had a view of the river with a deck to enjoy with sunny weather. Rooms were spacious with good beds. Very large facility with large conference meeting rooms.

Amazing views and good food. A bit on the expensive side though. Staff were busy but attentive, spent more time apologising than serving, but we needed for nothing. Had a nice night, we were staying on the island.

I picked the Red Lion because I was traveling alone with my 5-year-old niece figured I'd need help. I specifically chose a full service hotel because I thought that perks like valet and bell service would make the experience that much easier. I pulled up to find a vast parking lot and no valet. Parking was easy, but with hauling...
