Me and some friends stayed there for a night and for the time i stayed it was a decent hotel. The only downfall was they were still remodeling so for the continental breakfast we would of had to walk to the other Ruby hotel down the street. And i don't think we should have to pay for parking if we... More

This a a modern hotel at a great rate! Excellent downtown location, reasonable parking fees, and good breakfast. Beds were comfortable and nice water pressure in the shower! Will definitely stay here again!

Ruby 2 is a perfect combination of price, convenience and comfort. Convenience: Ruby 2 is in downtown Spokane and within walking distance of just about anything you need down there. It has its own parking area so you don't have to leave your car far away. Comfort: Ruby 2's rooms were cozy and well-decorated. Someone with a bit of an... More

Great place, location and cost. Newly remodeled and just reopened. Had a beautiful walk-in tiled shower. Will stay there again the next time when in town. Be forewarned that a train passes by the hotel a couple times a day (but that didn't bother us). The breakfast included waffles, english muffins, cereal, oatmeal, oj, coffee and milk (no fresh fruit).... More

I travel to Spokane often and I have stayed here twice. It is my new go to place when I am staying in Spokane. Rooms are clean and comfortable, very friendly staff and close to anything you want to do downtown. It has a very retro feel and is cost effective based on similar places nearby.

Last week, my sweetie and I stayed downtown to enjoy our daughter's wedding. Making plans and thinking of that "mother of the bride" budget I was working with, we decided to try something different, new and affordable. New meant trying Ruby2, a slick little renovation of a classic "motor hotel" right in the heart of Spokane's Arts District. And what... More

Very nice hotel. Location is good. Rooms are nicely appointed. Breakfast is good. The front desk was friendly and helpful with directions. There is nothing wrong with the Ruby 2 Hotel. I definitely will consider this hotel for my next trip to Spokane.

We have been fans of the Ruby for a while now - we have never been disappointed when staying there. When we saw they took over the old Econolodge (I think), we decided to give it a try. It is similar in many ways to the Ruby - nicely decorated, very comfortable, all the amenities you want. The price is... More

We've stayed at both Ruby and Ruby 2. Rooms at both were clean, comfortable and well-arranged for the minimal time we spent in the space. Train noise was not a problem (we noticed it when we were awake but it didn't keep us awake) nor was there any disturbance from other travelers even tho the place was quite full. Location... More

The hotel is nicely cleaned. It is right next to the railroad tracks but the sound was not noticeable. It was near the places downtown that I was going to for night life and an easy walk with my parents to Gonzaga University.
