We stay downtown anytime we come for a show or know we are going to have a few too many drinks but this was our first time at Hotel Ruby. When we pulled into the parking lot it looks like the classical downtown cheap motel that is in the works of being redone. The lobby was nice, the guy working behind the front desk was nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable and clean. The bathroom NEEDS redone. I was happy to have nice water pressure in the shower which usually lacks in motels. The lounge was good but a bit on the pricey side, very helpful to get a buy get one free coupon when you check in. The bartender was not the most friendly. It is a very noisy part of town, being in the middle of the entertainment district. But that is also the reason we stayed there, for a show at the Bing Crosby, so we expected that. A lot of bars near by, so could hear people laughing all the way until 3 am, again we expected that. Nice of the hotel to offer earplugs. Most motels downtown charge $15-$20 for parking so it was nice to only pay $5. The jazz artwork through out was a great addition. Really adds to the building. The breakfast was a typical free hotel breakfast. Nothing special but had all that was expected. I would come back for sure at that price. The two people at check out were both friendly. The maid crew was constantly visable. Cleaning hand rails, the free bikes that are available to use to go around town, everything! If the bathroom was redone and I actually could sleep better while I was there, it would be the perfect place for the money! But great place for the location and price.
