I was there Teusday and Wednesday. I really liked this property, except for being so close to the freeway. The room overlooked the pool and was next to the coi ponds, Tiki's and plenty of palm trees. Service was great at The Islands, being the only people in the restaurant we were well taken care of. The Islands Sushi and Pupu Bar "is" the bar/lounge, they just stuck a Sushi Chef behind the bar with the bartender. Not much of a Polynesian vibe, a pretty generic room (I thought). But it did have a nice big fish tank, and if you looked you could see a Tiki or two from the bar. The entrance of the hotel has a big outrigger above the door, setting the right tone, but when I walked into the lobby, it felt like any other hotel, I was a little let down. But there, just a few feet away the Tiki's were waiting. For a Red Lion Inn I was pleasantly surprised
