Booker Beware! Beyond Gross.
Booker beware! This is not the Convention Center Red Lion. Unfortunately, I didn’t pay attention, as I didn’t know there was a second Red Lion in Yakima until I tried checking in at the other one. (Front desk said it just opened last summer.) This was the GROSSEST hotel I’ve ever been in. Passed a lot of closed, boarded up, fenced businesses as I got closer. Front desk person walked away when I entered, ignored me when he came back, and was talking on his phone while checking me in. Room was on ground floor and was filthy, like someone had snuck in and used it. Tiny curly hairs in and around sink, mirror was splattered, TP roller was empty, with the spare roll sitting on toilet tank. Beds were two different heights with just a sheet, blanket, and another sheet on top. Went to close curtain, aluminum window frame was gross with mildew, AND WAS NOT LATCHED. Yup, the window was open, probably for the neighboring homeless to come and go. The only saving grace of this hellhole was the strong smell of weed (which I happen to enjoy), probably due to the dispensary that butts up to the back. (Had to wonder what that smell was masking, though.) I’ve stayed in plenty of dive motels, and I’m okay with that if they’re clean. I would not recommend this to anyone. Sleep in your car. Really. I was afraid to sit down, hauled my things out and waved goodbye to all the homeless setting up camp across the straight. Hotels.com should remove this property.
