Fantastic location! Our room overlooked the Spokane River. The restaurant had a great view, and it connected to the Centennial Trail. Clean rooms, free parking, free wi-fi and walking distance from downtown.

Thank you for the 5 stars!! We love being on the river and centennial trial almost as much as you and our other guests do! If you're ever here on a Thursday during the summer, the Flying Irish Running club meets here, and visitors are welcome!!

I know some people have written this is an older hotel. But this little place is amazing! We stay here with my little Chi and yes it is a two story hotel, so it is really easy for me to take my Chi to do her business. The grounds are so pretty and well kept (thank you grounds keepers)! And...

Northern Quest was sold out, so this was our second choice and were very happy. Check out was a breeze. The entire property was super clean and well taken care of. The bed and pillows were super comfortable. The bathrooms were clean, spacious, and the water was soft (bonus!). Breakfast at the restaurant was convenient with descent menu options and...

The hotel shuttle picked us up at the airport around 5:30pm on a Friday. The driver was friendly and chatted a bit on the drive to the hotel. The website says “complimentary airport and downtown shuttle service” so we asked if we could stop at a grocery store to pick up a few things. The driver said he couldn’t do...

The rooms could use some refreshing. They already have modern TVs and beds. They just need a bit of TLC in terms of carpet and wall coverings. What is really nice about this place is the staff and location. I am always treated like a king here and the location can't be beat for the price. One of Red Lion's...

We needed a place for a quick overnight in Spokane and stumbled on the Red Lion River Inn's Cyber Monday pricing of 40% of hotel rates. Seemed like a GREAT price for a prime location, which it was in terms of proximity to the shows and errands we had planned. However, the hotel is older and shows some wear and...

I am used to staying in boutique hotels and didn't know what to expect from the Red Lion River Inn. But I must say it was wonderful. The staff was funny and nice, the rooms perfectly fine.

I was worried the place would be a little run down, but it wasn't. It was just as nice as the more expensive hotels in the area. But what stood out was the friendliness and service of all staff.

Dear Guest, That sounds like a potentially very stressful scenario! We are so thrilled that we were able to assist you in smoothing it over.
