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

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... More

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... More

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... More

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!
