About Red Lion Inn and Suites

Situated in an extraordinarily convenient position just off the I-75, Red Lion Inn and Suites is a charming low-rise property offering simple chain hotel style accommodation.

While the décor might be a little plain, the rooms are very well equipped. Each features “Smart” TV with plug and play functionality, pillowtop mattresse, work desk, telephone, ultra-fast Wi-Fi, microwave, minibar, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron and alarm clock.

Leisure travelers will really enjoy using the outdoor pool, while business travelers will likely be more impressed with the business centre and meeting rooms available. All will be able to make use of the extensive free parking out front.

The breakfast is a fairly simple continental affair, but does include that Southern favorite, biscuits and gravy. There are a couple of chain restaurants in the neighborhood, including a Cracker Barrel right across the way.

Downtown Richmond, which holds the Eastern Kentucky University, is just over two miles from the hotel.

Positive Reviews

Cracker Barrel right across the way

Several guests mentioned the Cracker Barrel Restaurant by name, saying that it was just opposite the hotel, and a great dining option when they didn't feel like traveling into Richmond to find a restaurant.

Decent value for money

Though not many guests brought up the question of value for money, those who did were unanimous in saying they felt they had received decent value during their stay. They felt that, while the hotel wasn't fancy, it was clean, well situated and had reasonable room rates.

Very clean

Whatever other problems guests had with their room, its cleanliness wasn't one of them. It was very rare to find a guest speaking about a dirty room, with many comments complimenting housekeeping on a job well done.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast a bit disappointing

There really weren't many kind words written about the breakfast. Guests mentioned that it was extremely basic, with biscuits and gravy about the only item that added a little interest. They would clearly have liked hot food items like bacon and eggs to be included.

No elevator

Although the hotel is only two stories high, some guests sorely missed having an elevator available. It as not that any single trip was particularly difficult, but guests did get tired making multiple trips up and down the stairs each day.

Noise problems all round

The location close to the interstate meant that rooms facing that direction did experience a bit of noise from the cars speeding by. Guests also mentioned that dogs staying on the property would often start barking, causing disturbances all round.
