This property has decent rooms, the room we stayed in was not completely clean. There were items under the bed, otherwise the rooms were ok. The bed was comfortable and loved all the pillows. If you want a room away from street noise ask for a south side room. furthest away from Division.

We stayed at the Fair Bridge on March 27,2014 for three nights. The staff was friendly and maid service was good This hotel does not appear to have had any upgrade and very little maintenance. Small rooms, furniture damaged, refrigerator very noisy, the pillows were old and hallways were dark. The lobby consisted of the small desk, a computer stuffed... More

We stayed in the Fairbridge Inn between snow cat skiing in B.C and our flight home. We were just looking for a clean, comfortable, inexpensive place to stay that would give us easy access to downtown Spokane. It met our needs. The room was similar to any other mid level motel such as Holiday Inn. The area felt safe. It... More

After driving 6 hours, we arrived to our first room of the night, which had what appeared to be blood on the sheets (no bedspread). They did not offer to remake our beds for us, so we picked up new sheets and blankets to "re-make" the beds ourself (two queens). One of the two different types of blankets felt like... More

The pictures for the hotel are deceiving. Upon entering our room we discovered the beds that appeared to have nice comforters on them in the picture were just a blanket with a white sheet on top. The bathroom floor was dirty and there was hair left in the shower stall. The continental breakfast was okay, but bare minimum. In the... More

We have stayed here several times due to price & location. They have a floor of updated rooms! Be sure to ask for an updated room or you will be disappointed! Also with a good view. Our window was looking into an ally & backside of another graffiti buliding and trash. The older rooms are disgusting. Low dirty ceilings, old... More

Room was clean, wifi was reliable. But the breakfast was boring. They served cold scrambled eggs for you yourself to microwave (weird huh??). Lunch room is small and squishy. Staff weren't very friendly, but the price was good. Right next to a 7-11 with a gas station, so that was handy. If you're on a budget, choose this hotel. But... More

Booked though Hotwire for 1 night; even at the Hotwire rate of $44, I felt I paid way too much. I don't normally write reviews, but feel the 2.5 star rating is misleading. The pros...the lobby appeared clean and the front desk clerk was friendly and provided us with directions and a map to the restaurant we wanted. The sink,... More

You get what you pay for. I was looking for central & Downtown. I got a great deal, but the reality is.......it's in a run down part of downtown. Hotel is run down and fits in with the neighborhood .......close to freeway and soup kitchens. Went for a walk and only saw homeless and destitute.....depressing. It is not in a... More
