We stayed at this hotel for four days and three nights for a family trip. We have stayed at this hotel before and didn't have any problems, but this time was different. On the second night our AC wasn't working properly and was releasing extremely hot air. So, we called the front desk to have it fixed but later found... More

I am very sorry to hear of the issues you encountered. I am happy to hear that you were ultimately moved to a room to better accommodate you. Additionally, I am sorry for all the confusion regarding the BBQ grill. Clearly our team was not on the same page as you received conflicting information. I will be sure to follow... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of a family road trip. While not regular customers, we have stayed at this property a few times since the early 1990s. The hotel's location along the riverbank is perfect...make sure you get a room facing the river. The rooms themselves are clean, but rather small, and the balconies are... More

Great hotel for the price. Check in was fast and easy. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was responsive to complaints (a dog and a smoker in a non smoking room) and courteous when I asked about the business center. Easy access to the freeway and very close to Spokane and CDA. Short 15 minute drive up to... More

this hotel I'd say is just for the night as you travel thru, Wouldnt say it's good to spend your vacation at. Breakfast is not complimentary but maybe depending on who you book thru as some folks got vouchers. There is a resturant, the price is fair and it's ok and there is a b.fas buffet. There is no direct... More

Booked blindly online and got a great deal. Desk put us in wrong room and weren't very apologetic but did fix it. King room doesn't work for family of three! Well maybe in some states? Close to CDA and Spokane Valley. Would stay again! Cleaning staff missed some spots but nothing major (dirty windows, crud by garbage can) - otherwise... More

Stayed on road trip from Seattle to Milwaukee. Very nice staff, both at check in at night and departure in morning. Room was very comfortable, 2 queens, and clean. Only suggestion would be to enlarge workout room. Very nice cardio machines but no weight machines. Pretty small room, but did have one bench with some free weights. Convenient location, right...

Hotel is about 20-25 minutes away from Silverwood Theme Park. Quick friendly check in. Front desk handled room requests perfectly. Night housekeeper was super friendly as well. We stayed in a third floor room with a balcony over looking river. Overall very pleased with my stay.

Came here after spending several nights at multiple Best Westerns and though the desk staff was nice we would never recommend this property for anyone arriving late. Don't even try to order room service after 8:oo pm. No answer, no call back and just a sorry and should we chase them down from the desk. No mention of when they... More

Location on the river was beautiful. However, the exterior of the property towards the water was not well maintained, and there was limited accessibility to enjoy the water. there seemed to be a lot of potential for improvement here. In addition, while very friendly and nice, the staff didn't seem to have much knowledge of the area, things to do... More
