Fairbridge Inn Express
Ranked #34 of 46 Hotels in Spokane
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

I came to the FairBridgeInn in Spokane only due to all other hotels being sold out. First off there was dried blood on the shower curtain and a big yellow spot on my sheets so disgusting. Also the carpet between the bed and the bedside table was full of dirt and dust one of the most disgusting hotels ive stayed in the hallways are also dirty and nothing in the room is newer than the early 90's I would never recommend this hotel bring a tent and stay in a campground would be 100 times better.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled solo

Our room was dirty. There were stains behind beds and the furniture. You wouldn't have noticed them unless you were looking behind the beds or furniture. The room even felt dirty. The shower/tub was clean. Beds were comfy. Pillows were a bit small. Blanket was scratchy and old. Found hairs in the bed and nightstand. Breakfast was gross. They had a little bit of everything- but it tasted horrible, and the food was all cold. There is a 7-11 and a Starbucks just across from it, I would just get breakfast there instead. Wonderful location, just right off the highway. There are homeless people hanging out all hours at the 7-11. Front desk service isn't that friendly. I would probably come back again. I think if you have an issue with homeless people, untidy rooms, and unfriendly front desk service, this hotel isn't for you.

I found the desk and other help very pleasant. The room was up to par, giving every detail some thought. The bed was so soft and comfy! The AC and heat were my choice and worked wonderfully...TV was great! The shower was great, and the amenities, were all there. I was able to enjoy a cup or two of real coffee with the maker in the room. The morning breakfast was a delight! A full range of good food to select from. Frankly, I will miss this "home away from home". This was great!

Room Tip: non-smoking is probably better for your health, but if you need to smoke inside, get the smoking roo...

The front desk service was without a doubt the rudest I have ever encountered . The room was adequate you get what you pay , but with staff that unbelievably rude and indifferent I would not stay again at any price. Pay an extra 10-20 bucks a night and go somewhere else!

This property has decent rooms, the room we stayed in was not completely clean. There were items under the bed, otherwise the rooms were ok. The bed was comfortable and loved all the pillows. If you want a room away from street noise ask for a south side room. furthest away from Division.

We stayed at the Fair Bridge on March 27,2014 for three nights. The staff was friendly and maid service was good This hotel does not appear to have had any upgrade and very little maintenance. Small rooms, furniture damaged, refrigerator very noisy, the pillows were old and hallways were dark. The lobby consisted of the small desk, a computer stuffed in the corner. The complimentary breakfast was reasonable but there were only 4 tables and they were 4ft from the desk making it uncomfortable for everyone. While walking back into the hotel a side door was ajar and it appeared that all the maintenance staff, house cleaning (laundering) and those who handled the breakfast food were using this small area.

Room Tip: Staying downtown at this hotel is not ideal for reaching Spokane River Walk. To leave or return it...

We stayed in the Fairbridge Inn between snow cat skiing in B.C and our flight home. We were just looking for a clean, comfortable, inexpensive place to stay that would give us easy access to downtown Spokane. It met our needs. The room was similar to any other mid level motel such as Holiday Inn. The area felt safe. It is just down the hill from Gonzaga. We just happened to be there during restaurant week, so dinner was a great deal. We would readily repeat our stay.
