    Property condition


    Great to be in the forest. The rooms were tired. When we checked in the was a band playing in the lobby and it was difficult to hear. Great concept, maybe a more laid back jazzy band would work best. Had some appetizers at the lounge which where great.

    I stayed here a few years ago when it was Red Lion instead of Hotel RL and had an entirely different experience. Despite the new trendy lobby and restaurant (which is cute), my first room was unfinished (e.g. dirty tub, naked pillows, no towels...). After trucking up to the 3rd floor and back down again I had to stand in line (again) and was given a new room with no discount or upgrade. Okay, fine. But then the second room was smaller and the tub wouldn't hold water so I had to keep the tap running while I soaked in the tub which was counterproductive to using epsom salts btw. When I checked out I told them about the tub and simply received a thank you for letting them know. I don't think I'll be going back, ever, despite the great location and overall quietness of the facility.

    5/5 Excellent

    The room was extremely comfortable. I especially loved the pillows. The shower was just a bit frustrating, as it wanted to be either a little too hot or a little too cold, and the tub was slow to drain. Maybe these are things that could be easily fixed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and there was a lovely view of Capitol Lake through the restaurant windows. There was also free, and delicious, espresso in the morning!

    5/5 Excellent

    Clean rooms, good coffee, easy parking and nice beds. Restrooms a bit dated and small.

    So So

    The staff on property were all friendly, professional, and courteous; the bed was comfy, and the shower great. However, this property seemed overworked and tired — lots of guests and not that much maintenance. (my toilet tank ran all the time, dirty stairwells, shower/bathtub grout) It’s a solid middle of the road and not bad for the price. A downside for my overnight were the high school soccer teams who were running/ shouting in the halls/ rooms and hanging out in the landings and halls. There were also a few college kids drinking, slamming doors and yelling at midnight. Felt more like a college dorm/ boarding school than a quiet hotel property during my visit. Easy location, quiet grounds, and not far off the I-5.
