Well-appointed, friendly staff

I stopped by on a cross-country trip.The front desk clerk and bartender were friendly and efficient. The nice-looking restaurant was closed, but I had a sandwich in the bar. My room was at the end of a very very long hallway. The room was well-appointed with the comfiest bed ever and a fabulous selection of pillows. The free toiletries were a local brand and very luxurious. 20 years ago, Red Lion was parentheses hotel in town, and this was apparent.
One note, I am not smoke-sensitive, but the room, while non-smoking, clean, and recently refurbished, had the smell that comes from years of smoking seeping into the walls. This might be difficult to completely get rid of, so be warned, rooms can have a smoky undertone. If this would be a problem, perhaps ask if there are some rooms that have always been nonsmoking.
