Red Lion Hotel Anaheim

Anaheim, Los Angeles

The hotel

Recently renovated, the Red Lion offers a very comfortable standard of accommodation and a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere just a stone’s throw from Anaheim’s myriad of attractions. Comprised of two buildings, divided by a garden area. Red's Pasta Lounge is open daily and serves a hearty buffet breakfast to get your day off to just the right start. It’s also a great place for dinner with plenty of traditional American charm. For pre-dinner drinks, look no further than Red's Pasta Lounge. If you’ve still got some energy left after a day at the theme parks, splash about for a bit in the large outdoor heated swimming pool with open fire pits. There’s also a fitness centre if you’re keen to keep in shape plus a spacious sundeck for making the most of that brilliant Californian weather.

I won't be staying at a Red Lion Hotel again. The staff looked overburdened and depressed most of the time at the front desk.

I won't be staying at a Red Lion Hotel again. The staff looked overburdened and depressed most of the time at the front desk. I waited 25 minutes to ask a question at the front desk behind a line of three people because there was only one person available. Someone in front of me just wanted extra toilet paper because they were out and the front desk couldn't even reach housekeeping by phone. There was no hot water on day 1, the elevators were both out of service (and we were on the third floor). The hotel advertised wifi, but it was sketchy at best. Both our sink and shower drains had to be attended to because they were so backed up. The breakfast was WAY over-priced, but luckily there was an IHOP right next door. Read less

Recently stayed at Red Lion Anaheim. It is an older property but top notch! The service was great. The property and my room were very clean! I could not hear anything from the adjoining rooms or the hallway. It’s about a 15 minute walk to DL. I will definitely stay here again!

I was so disappointed in my recent stay at Red Lion in Anaheim. When our group arrived at Red Lion we noticed right away that it was pretty dated & could use a bit of a clean-up. Both of the elevators at the front of the hotel were down for maintenance so we had to use the elevator at the back of the hotel (which had a bit of a moldy smell to it, and took ages with everyone using one elevator). The room itself was fine (nothing special), so if the price reflected this I might have been satisfied .. however, it took 2 days of the hotel staff skipping our room before we had to go down to the front desk and request someone come and (at the very least) make our beds & take our garbage while we were out during the day. We also realized pretty quickly that we had no hot water & that our sink was not draining properly. As an apology for the lack of hot water the hotel gave everyone a complimentary breakfast, however the breakfast was not good (or hot) and actually made my roommate feel pretty sick. Overall, I would have rated this hotel even lower (for the price) if the front desk staff not have been so kind to us throughout everything. Always greeting us with a smile & being as helpful as possible given the circumstances. In a pinch and at a drastic discount I might consider returning (as it is in walking distance of the Anaheim Convention Center and very close to Disney as well) ... but I doubt it. Read less

We stayed here for 8 nights. We were in California to visit Universal Studios and Disneyland. We had only adults. Overall this hotel works, but if you are staying more than a few days you may want a better one. The longer we stayed the worse it got. If the Red Lion put money into a remodel it would be more impressive. Good: helpful staff, 10-15… Read more
We stayed here for 8 nights. We were in California to visit Universal Studios and Disneyland. We had only adults. Overall this hotel works, but if you are staying more than a few days you may want a better one. The longer we stayed the worse it got. If the Red Lion put money into a remodel it would be more impressive. Good: helpful staff, 10-15 min walk to Disneyland, close to the ART bus stop, can see some of the Disney fireworks from upper rooms, rooms were clean, affordable, pool is nice, 24 hr ihop next door, 5 min walk from more food including 24 hr subway, cvs rx, Walgreens, Korean, Chinese, pizza, burgers Not great: breakfast was so so (not worth the 11.95$ but if it comes with your package it will more than suffice), hotel is old and breaking down (elevators were often down, no hot water for 18hrs, people plastering and painting in main flow hallway making it smell, stains on floors/walls/tub/sink, staffing at hotel was 1.5 persons (2 people there for very short while then 1 person for a long time) at the check in time causing a long wait line Read less
