We needed a place to stay overnight close to the Spokane Arena with parking, breakfast and wifi. A deal with Hotwire got us a great rate at this hotel. Once we found out where we were staying, we read the bad reviews on tripadvisor and we were sorry we had booked here. So we were prepared for the worst. The... More

This hotel is not the perfect place. Sure it needs some updating. They say they are but as many times as I have stayed there I never had an updated room. I receive care at the local cancer center and being I live 3 hours away, its nice to have this place. They offer me a discount, which is so... More

Your average freeway side hotel. Front desk check in was easy and staff nice. Breakfast in the am was better than you would expect but still average. The rooms looked clean on the surface but the whole place looks rundown and in dire need of a revamp. I didn't want to look too closely at anything (sometimes ignorance is better).... More

The hotel room is not clean especially the bed linen and the hand towels. Stains and foot print on the linen. Seems to me they are not cleaned at all. The hotel location is close to the highway exits and right next to the gas station. While parking and checking in, we found a few strangers in the street, carpark... More

This is an ok place to stay. Like others we stayed because of the Silverwood ticket special. Towels were poor but beds were ok (2 queens). Free breakfast was good. It is right off the freeway and easy to find. Downtown area of Spokane. Recommend solely for park package. personnel were nice.

We stayed here on a road trip. The front desk lady was very nice. The 2nd floor looked a little run down. The room was okay. The beds weren't the softest, and the shower did not drain well. It seemed clean though. Overall, it was fine for the price.

Hotel was easy to find and adequate for an overnight stay. Room was clean, but the AC was hard to control, either way too cold or way too hot in the room. Bathtowels left alot to be desired, they should try a little fabric softener. Breakfast was OK for the most part, glad we found the extra breakfast seating down... More

The only good thing about this place was the location, right off the freeway after a really long drive. The hotel itself appeared to be nice on the internet/website. Hotel staff was not pleasant. Bathrooms were dirty and no fans in them. Carpets in rooms appeared to have not been vacuumed. Pillows were awful. Had to stack 3. Bath towels... More

We've stayed in many hotels across the Spokane area and our track team ended up booked at the Fairbridge. It's not a chain I normally use, and probably won't use again. For the price, it is what it is. No, it doesn't look like the photos. But our non-smoking room was smoke-free which made me happy. Our room was located... More

Me and my family (around 6 adults and 5 kids) stayed here the weekend of 6/13 for my daughter's 4th birthday and had the most awful experience EVER. The rooms looked nothing like the website, the staff (Noel/Shy/Sarah) are all rude, there was ONE nice staff person Brandi! Our rooms were not cleaned after the first night there, my cousin... More
