HORRIFIC! Red Lion Hotel is 2 Star at Best

Pros: The Parking
Cons: So many too list, check out Yelp, it will help you out.
Location: Location was a great selling point.
We Checked in and Checked out Immediately. The line of people doing the same thing took us just under an hour to do so. You couldn't call anyone on the phone or talk to anyone in person in any reasonable about of time. In the room you will find Bugs, Mold, and extremely smelly water. We had stayed at the Holiday Inn which took us in for less money and with High Quality Staff and Rooms. The listing on Travelocity had this room rated at a 3.9, no where close. After our experience we Yelp'd it.. and to our surprise we were among a number of similar stories. This Hotel should shut down the bad rooms and do some serious improvements before taking anyone's money.

Good park location

Pros: Location is great close to Walt Disney World. The landscaping and lobby well kept although some of the walkways had poor lighting and looked worn.
Cons: Free shuttle to Disney would be great, should tell customers about any renovations going on. The restaurant was closed for renovations.
Location: Excellent location for WDW parks. Many restaurants in area, Perkins and Bob Evans restaurants are across the street.
We arrived on Wednesday 11/22/17 stayed 2 nights. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The next day was Thanksgiving. We called housekeeping to tell them we didn’t need the room cleaned but needed towels. They said sure we will send them to your room. We went for lunch and returned but no towels. The housekeeping staff went home early to enjoy thanksgiving. ( Understandable ) We had to find some on our own, we did by the pool.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed every aspect of your stay. We do provide complimentary shuttles to the airport. Your feedback is very much appreciated.

Just a place to sleep.

Cons: Direct shuttles to the Disney Theme Parks. The only shuttle goes to Epcot and then you have to get on the monorail.
Location: Disney Word is five minutes away.
Honestly, it was what you paid for. Hotel staff was helpful and the location was great. A/C in the room worked, shower was clean and beds were comfy. I booked this hotel for a short weekend trip to Disney with my daughter and it did the job. In a bind, I'd stay here again.

Great find

If doing a disney vacation and not staying at a resort this place is a good choice. Right near the exit to the parks. Clean. 3 pools. Staff is nice enough. We had some very minor issues. Bathroom is a little small, to the point where we could not close the bathroom door if the toilet seat was down. You had to close the door first. Weird. Flood light in the pool near us popped out so they had to close the pool for the day but there were 2 more and a kiddie pool. Also 3 laundry rooms but two machines in one and one machine in the other were broken. Other than those small inconveniences our stay was great.

Dingy and dirty.

The place was dingy and dirty. One of bed sheets look like snort was on it and the other bed sheets look like it had poop and blood on it. We took a photo of it to the front desk and was offered a full refund. But we had to scramble to find another hotel that night. We will never again book at a Red Lion hotel.
