“Incredible location, refreshing rooms, modern upgrades!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This hotel was a very pleasant experience for us during our weekend stay over the 4th of July weekend in 2014. The hotel used to be a Ramada, and since the Ruby brand has taken over it appears to have undergone large renovation work and is in very nice shape! The room we had was VERY clean, and we are quite picky travellers. The beds/linens are high quality and very comfortable, along with a functional bathroom and regular (expected) room amenities.

The rates are very reasonable, especially considering the amazing location of this hotel. It is located very centrally in Spokane and is within walking distance of just about any major attraction/restaurant in the city. The Riverfront Park (AMAZING) is ~5 minutes away, along with many other sites and amenities. Couldn't have asked for a better location. While here you really should check out the adjacent Steam Plant restaurant - it is quite unique and has really good food.

Now for the honesty, the outside of the hotel (walkways, stairs etc.) are a bit dated, but don't let that fool you! The rooms are really quite nice. Keep in mind yes, the hotel is right by some train tracks, and it can be a bit loud - but we found it didn't bother our sleep at ALL. If you require absolute silence during your hotel stay I would recommend a B&B or something in the sticks..

Oh the room also had excellent air conditioning - VERY important as it was ~98F (~37C) during the day. Wi-fi was perfect also!

Room Tip: Keep in mind there are train-tracks adjacent.

Reviewed 16 June 2014

This hotel wasn't exactly what I expected. It's more of a motel style when I was thinking it was going to be an indoor type hotel. However, it was very clean, and the staff was fantastic! I was never wanting for anything. Walls were a little thin, but not overly noisy.

Front desk screwed up on charge after I checked/rechecked and verified payment card. Charged correct card and then put hold on another. Front deck was rude. Good location though.
