The place smelled funny and was pretty dirty and old. Needs remodeled. So 200 characters minimum huh? What else? It’s located in an area where there’s a lot of homeless people hanging around. Worried about break ins.

Dear Lamchop826, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience at our Property. We are excited to be able to tell you we are currently working on some major renovations to the building and decor, and hope to be able to boast completely new and modern rooms with an invigorating atmosphere by early 2019! We understand your concerns regarding safety in the area, and have employed a private security company to assist in paroling our parking lot after dark to help combat these concerns. We hope that you will be willing to give us another chance the next time you visit the Spokane area. We would welcome another opportunity to provide you with an exceptional level of service and accommodations. Best Regards; Toni Bovino-Francis General Manager

The room was great. Breakfast was great. Daytime staff was very nice. The night time guy at the front desk was cranky. Very comfortable room. Nice facilities. I enjoyed the visit and would visit again.

When I checked in, the person who helped me was awesome. She was friendly and it was a quick process. The room was, let's just say outdated. The desk was pre-computer, the chairs didn't match and the carpet was at least 30-years old. The AC worked well, just a little loud. The

All in all it could have been worse. I've stayed at hotels with burned out mattresses and where I need to keep my socks on in the shower. The bathroom was nice and clean, no mold. The towels were clean, no random hairs. The bed was pretty darn comfortable for the condition of

Do you offer shuttle to the casino?
Hi Cheryl, No, I do apologize, but we do not have a shuttle service at Fairbridge Inn. I am not sure why Brenda L. stated this is not a good place to stay if you have children, but this statement indicates a severe misrepresentation of the safety and security of our Property We have many families leave happy every day, and have never had an incident that would make me second guess bringing my own son (age 12) here with me. So, Brenda, I would just ask that you provide some type of proof or example when stating your personal opinion as absolute truth. Best Regards; Toni Bovino-Francis

What's the earliest you can check in? What is the checkout time?
I think if you show up and ask nicely they can allow guessing 2 pm.
