4 out of 5
The hotel was nice, and will stay there again. There was one confusing thing that occurred. Travelocity advertised the room including Continental breakfast. However the hotel said no, it’s $6 per? I showed my itinerary and Red Lion honored it. That’s good. Otherwise that would have been a pretty expensive bagel and cream cheese. My feeling is don’t blow a good place By nickel and dime-ing customers.
