Decor has seen better days but the place is clean enough and the beds are comfortable. Unusual set up can lead to a blocks-long walk to your room. The pools were ideal for my friends children and for the 100 degree heat. On-site restaurant was pleasant (actually the happy hour food and dinner was better than average for Spokane) and...

Thank you for your recent review! I was glad to read that you enjoyed Ripples, our on site restaurant that has one of the most amazing patios that sits overlooking the Spokane River. I was surprised to read the experience you encountered with retrieving your small package at the desk. I will definitely follow up on that. Shipping and receiving...

Firstly, there are two Red Lion Inns within a half mile of each other on the Spokane River and this isn't the right one. The Inn at the Park has a huge outdoor pool with a big slide to make the kids squeal. This one has a small undistinguished pool. The rooms are clean. Both the staff at the reception...

I appreciate you taking the time to write about your recent stay. Some of these items I can definitely address immediately. I agree that the Front desk does need to assist the person in front of them first and I personally apologize for this. I'm glad you found the rooms to be clean and the location and restaurant was enjoyable....

We stay here numerous times a year because we usually love it. I'm not so sure anymore. There were conventions so there were therefore numerous guests and groups. I don't mind people but I do mind being unable to sleep because groups were gathered outside of our room cheering, hooting and hollering. This went on well into the early morning....
