    Aged Hotel in need of more repairs and upgrades

    Much older hotel. In need of many repairs. Elevators did not work well. Bathtub was cracking. It was freezing in my room, had to keep the heater on full the entire night and it still did not warm up. The bed was decent and the room was fairly clean but over all not a good experience.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    I have stayed at this Red Lion location a couple of times, most recently in an accessible room. On both occasions, the rooms were very comfortable and clean, with beautiful views of the lake. Morning breakfast was simple but tasty. The best aspect of this place is the staff. So kind and generous, so helpful.
