    Not Impressed

    This was one of the worst experiences I have had ever. The pool was too cold, the room were in was right next to the exterior door, so every time people came in or out all night the door would slam shut and we could hear all of the converstions going on. Also we had a non smoking room but reall whats the point when all the guests stand outside your window all night and their smoke comes through the air conditioner.The sheets on our bed had holes in it that looked like cigarette burns. And the hotel staff didn’t contact me after they told me they would make it right. DON’T STAY HERE IF YOU WANT TO GET ANY REST!!!!!!!!! Comment from the hotels management Posted: 16-Oct-09 I apologize for the experience you had at our hotel. Thank you for the detailed critique as we strive to improve from each one received. Our pool is set to summer, which is 80*F+/-.It was recently closed for painting and the heater was off resulting in the drop in temp. As we head into fall season and weather cools down the pool temp will increase to a cozy 85*F +/-. These stairway/entry guest rooms are available at a discounted rate because of their location and potential exposure to noise. We have 4 available, of 150, considering a price benefit. Your dismay in relation to the sheets is noted and will be brought to the attention and resolution of our housekeeping. It is our mission to deliver the best quality and service providing memorable experiences to each guest everyday. I hope you will try us again and see we truly value your feedback. Hotel Management, Guest Services Manager

    Reasonably nice stay

    This is a reasonably priced hotel. The staff were pleasant, the location convenient, the room clean, but that pool is too cold.

    Not Impressed

    Group of us had a total of 3 rooms. All three rooms smelled of mildew. One of the three had spiders in the bed, so we were given a new room. The new room also had spiders in the bed. Finally we were given another room across the hall and had no spiders. Staff was extremely helpful and apologetic. Staff was excellent hotel was not so good

    I wouldn’t stay again

    We checked in on a Sunday and the restaurant and lounge were closed, so we could get no food on site. Nothing I had read or been told reflected that. The room was OK, but, for the price, I would have expected a little bit more.

    Cold Pool

    Good price, but the pool was way too cold to enjoy it.

    Not impressed but what do you expect in Pocatello, ID

    Indoor swimming pool was way to cold for young kids. Our non-smoking room had been smoked in recently.

    Mostly Good!

    Our experience was overall very positive. Our room was clean and comfortable. Two things did stand out as "could be better." One was the pool. We were really pleased that they had a pool and a children’s pool--but they were sooooo cold that we really could not enjoy them. Why not heat at least the kiddie pool? Not good. The other was the restaurant. GREAT breakfast, but we had to eat our meals at the evening in the lounge. NOT the best experience for a young family with children. Why not use the restaurant? There are, however, several good places to eat in the area other than the hotel. We will stay there again when in Pocatello.

    Good Hotel for the price

    The only thing we missed with this hotel was that there was no continental breakfast. Other than that, everything was great.

    Very rude hotel manager

    The hotel manager was very rude when we went to check in, and not accomidating at all. However the cleaning lady was very helpful, and the resturant was great. I would recommend new management and leave everything else.

    Comfortable, clean; no on the restaurant

    I found this Red Lion to be a nice stay. The pool was fantastic, the staff was friendly and the hotel was clean and well kept. Still, the restaurant was out of everything, didn’t offer many healthy choices and the service was slow. Also, their fitness room is sparse. The bike didn’t work, the treadmill had a catch and the display was incorrect and the elliptical machine was wobbly. Oh, and no in room movies. Still, overall, I thought it was a nice hotel and would guess that the indoor pool would be especially appealing to families.

    A nice stopover after a long day of driving.

    The hotel was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. The room was very nice and the shower was great. It was a great place to spend the night after an 11 hour drive.

    Snowed in

    I was here for a week, it was dumping snow so this was pretty much where I was at accept for trips to work each day. facilities were nice and conveniently located. lounge is ok, and restaurant was decent. the pool would probably be better most of the rest of the year, but it is in a big open room that was pretty cold, so going to the pool wasn’t an option.

    comfortable

    The staff was extremely friendly, parts of the hotel were dated, but everything else was okay, not my vacation destination but good enough for a couple of days and very easy to get around town.

    Reasonable rates

    Room was clean and decent, although it could use new carpeting. Located right off the freeway in an area populated by numerous lodging, it was a convenient stop while travelling through the area.

    this place stinks

    I hated my stay. the pool was freezing cold. the hot tub was not working, but was warmer than the pool. they did not have a continental breakfast. the bathroom was scary and old. the tiles of the tub were dirty. the bed was way comfy. that was the only good thing. their internet in the lobby was slower than my dial-up and that is pathetic.

    Travelers tip

    don’t stay here, they are way over-priced.

    If you have to stay in Pocatello, there arent’ many choices

    Although I have stayed at this hotel several times this year without problem, my last trip involved multiple trips to the front desk as the keys I was given would not open the door. It finally took a room change + 30 minutes with an engineer to find a key to work. Not what I wanted to do after 12 hours in travel that day. Also, coffee pot in room was dirty.

    Travelers tip on saving a few bucks

    If you ask, the hotel shuttle will transport you to and from any local establishment, i.e. movie theatre, restaurant, etc., which is nice during inclement weather.
