I stayed 12-29-19 the room was in need of much repair the plumbing barely worked the walls need painting. The tv didn’t work. They did give me another room but it was just as bad. At 11 pm there were people hollering and partying all night. I would not recommend staying here!

Though expensive (they periodically send out meal discounts which is thoughtful) the Red Lion Inn is always worth every penny.

I heard great reviews about this place, I was here due to another bad experience with a differnt Inn in the area. I'll start off with saying staff was friendly and accomadating. Second, I felt uncomfortable being in the room itself. It's not a well maintained Inn. Third, not a great selection in dinner. Overall, this place wasn't for me… Read more

Overall, this place wasn't for me personally, mostly because of the vibe and the cleanliness. Read less

This historic inn has lots of charm but it comes with shortcomings, 1.) our beds were extremely uncomfortable, leaving for a near sleepless night. We did opt for one the less expensive rooms, but that shouldn't be reflected in the beds.

This historic inn has lots of charm but it comes with shortcomings, 1.) our beds were extremely uncomfortable, leaving for a near sleepless night. We did opt for one the less expensive rooms, but that shouldn't be reflected in the beds. There was not hot water in our room sink. 2.)The restaurant was good but the quality of the meals did not reflect the price. $42 for prime rib with very mediocre sides. Braised Pork shank was good but swimming in pan juices so that side of polenta became art of the broth. The pool and hot tub were nice and open for use. As photos indicate the inn is well kept but far short of a 5 star experience. Read less
