Will never stay here again!!!
Room was dirty. Fridge was really dirty. The room smelled really bad. We asked to get help to fix the non working tv, front desk said they would be up to fix it, never showed up and when I told the lady at the front desk she tried to say they went into our room twice to fix it. We were in the room and no one ever showed up.

We found hair in the bathtub in on totiet seat in around the the sink. In room itself was kinda dusty. I told the front desk about it they told me they would send someone up while i was out. Came back late around 8:30pm in walk in the bathroom with all the hair still there.

My stay.
Well the restaurants and lounge are closed, which is opposite to what it says here, so if you are looking for hotel and food after a long day working, don’t go here. You will have to drive a distance or a long walk to get to food. And the breakfast wasn’t the hot usual breakfast but was more of a grab and go with a couple of warm things. Not worth the price. The road nice was minimal, rom the 4th floor. The highway noise, that was different. The lawn maintenance across the street, they were rude power blowing so early. Checkout was simple. Room was clean and no carpet. Balcony was a nice touch and enjoyable to look out.

Perfect location.
The hotel is in a great location, very near downtown, but far enough away to be quiet. Lots of local restaurants!! The hotel it nice, bur you can tell its aged. The rooms are well kept, and the curtains are beautiful!!!

AwfulStay
It looked nice, and the bed was comfortable, however; the bathroom had rings around the toilet bowl, there was something sticky by the bed & next to thewindows on the floor, the tv did NOT WORK, and there were dogs on each side of us that despite contacting the front desk they did NOTHING to correct the issues. I probably could have gone to a crack motel and gotten to sleep & watch tv which was not the case at this Red Lion in Idaho. It wasn't worth the money because of the problems.

Ok, but if I wasn't on a specific diet, I'd wouldn
It was quiet, and nice. I was surprised that there was a charge for a basic breakfast offering, so I completely skipped that. Starbucks offers better for less.

Clean and very nice roomwith a balcony
The hotel itself was just beautiful and the room was very nice . We had a corner room with a balcony overlooking the city on the 6th floor. It was gorgeous and the room was exceptionally clean. Bed was perfect and overall an excellent stay. Also the manager, Alan, was very quick at responding to my questions.
