The staff were very helpful but had to repeatedly apologies for things like the poor breakfast and the closed gym facility. I had to repeatedly go to the front desk for a bathroom mat and the room's coffee refill. When I made a request, the staff quickly moved to solve the issue. The staff also added they were looking forward to a renovation expected in the autumn. The bed was really comfortable. Many food outlets in the area did not survive the COVID shutdown, but those still open offer a great choice of cuisine.

The hotel is run down and dirty outside of the building. Homelessness is a problem in the immediate area. I would advise against families with kids staying there, and anyone else who wants a comfortable stay. The one good thing about the hotel is that it has a low rate.

Great location. Lousy continental breakfast. My biggest negative was finding hotel. Humongus logo on hotel said "Governor Hotel" with gigantic G also. Another side of 8 story bldg said "Governor" and logo at enterance was large "G" logo 3 laps around block then i went to front desk and asked. Yes this is Red Lion hotel x 6 years! There was a large plastic "going out of business" type sign hanging on front that said Red lion. Why not at least cover old logo with it?? And maybe make it RED? IE RED LION 6 years with old hotels logo? Frustrating to find property.

It was a nice and quiet hotel. The only disappointment was the breakfast was not at a standard that I usually enjoy. The muffins were stale and there was really no hot food options.
