    Red Lion Hotel

    After being loyal HoJo fans for 7 years, we decided to try out the Red Lion Hotel. Here are pictures from our stay …

    Hotel: Red Lion
    Date of Stay: May 2, 2009
    Room: Standard 2 Queens (front desk told us they only had king/queens and all room are the same, no suites etc.)
    Cost: $94 bucks plus tax, we booked it the same day we arrived.
    Buildings: 2 (main has about 8-10 floors, smaller one has 4-5 floors)
    Food: 1 grab and go (frozen food, chips, drinks), 1 restaurant, and room service
    Pool: 1 (no hot tub at least from what we saw)
    Parking: As of May 5, 2009 parking is $15 a day (more than Disneyland, which is $12)
    Side Notes: Pet friendly ($20 bucks a day, 20 pounds or less), IHOP is next store, Garden Walk is a 5 minute walk, Disneyland is a 15/25minute walk, Denny’s is a 5 minute walk.

    Overall: We enjoyed it very much but will probably only stay there again if we brought our dog along because personally I do not like staying at places that charge for parking. We were lucky enough to stay right before paid parking went into effect.


    As you walk in the door


    To the left is the bathroom door, which has a setting for the lights to turn on automatically when you enter.


    Sink




    Shampoo/Conditioner/Soap is Coconut Lime from Bath and Body Work.


    Blow dryer and towels have their own cubby holes


    Shower/Toilet


    Now on to the closet door


    Inside closet


    Passed the closet and bathroom you will find the microwave, coffee maker, and safe. Coffee is Wolfgang Puck brand, Ice Tea brand is Lipton


    Flat screen


    This water is not free, some unknown brand from Italy, $3 if you want it


    The fridge is under the TV


    Desk/Web access stuff, something my fiancée found funny was everything in the room is so modern but the phones.


    Beds (excuse my fake Louis Vuitton bag)


    Nightstand/another phone/iHome


    Close-up of iHome (iPod not included, it’s mine)


    Chair by window


    Pool with Fire Pits


    Two more of Fire Pits



    Excuse my blurry picture … Pool closes at 10pm


    View of ToT and blue IHOP roof


    View of Fireworks


    *Note: If my pictures seem oddly familiar it is because I posted this on one other disney site as well

    Thanks for the review! I was considering staying there in June... on easyclicktravel I can get a room for $58 a night... but that $15 parking fee... um. I know over the last year or so they have completely remodeled and upgraded everything, but I too find charging that much for parking, on top of the other resort fees they charge to be a bit much. Esp. when there are other places even closer that don't charge for parking. Yes, those places might not be as fancy, but seriously, I don't spend that much time in the room anyway.

    Wow... that looks really nice!!

    Oh... they probably are charging for parking now to offset the cost of remodeling!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
