First off we booked through Expedia and no where did it say the amount of the deposit. Which is fine I know most hotels require a deposit but it didn't even say there was one. Even on the Ruby 2 website did it say there is a deposit all it says is a $5 parking pass and $25 for pets.... More

Just stayed 2 nights at the Ruby 2. It was so awesome! We have children and not only were the staff so kind and helpful, but it felt safe. There is convenient underground parking and a continental breakfast with affordable room rates. My oldest son loves art and this place is truly inspiring from the moment you get out of... More

1. Best price we found in town. 2. Right downtown, walking to eateries and the riverfront park, which is nice. 3. Felt safe. 4. Very tasteful place. I read about the train noise. We had a room separating us from the tracks--no problem Low and peaceful hum when the trains went by.

We stayed one night at the Ruby2. The location of this motel is good and within walking distance to Riverside shopping and the park. The parking is convenient although not secure. Our room was a bit small but clean and comfortable. Rooms are accessed by outside corridors - so each room has an outside door and the windows face onto... More

Hi, thank you so much for your feedback! We realize that you took your valuable time to do that. Our parking garage is equipped with security cameras and someone is onsite 24/7. I'm glad you found our rooms to be clean as that is our goal! Our original continental breakfast has been improved considerably by the addition of the eggs... More

My impression of this hotel is that it is below average! The very first thing you need to know is that the hotel is located right beside the train tracks that run through Spokane, & they are VERY active, at ALL hours of the day & night. The rooms are clean & amenities in the rooms (bed, bedding, furnishings, etc.)... More

Thank you for giving us your feedback. I am sorely disappointed to hear about an experience like you had! I can't even imagine a member of my staff telling you to use a gas station bathroom. It seems that they may not have realized that you were a hotel guest, but they should have asked you that first before sending... More

My family was pleasantly surprised by this hotel, it was very clean and had a relatively modern feel to the room. It included a small fridge, mini freezer, microwave and the free Wifi worked very well on ground level. Their downtown location would be ideal for singles or couples as it is within walking distance to allot of pubs &... More

Thank you to our friends north of the border! We appreciate all of your feedback, and your kind words about the hotel. Being downtown does mean trains for many of the hotels, unfortunately. We do have good news about the dated bathrooms, as most of our bathrooms have been remodeled, and there are just a few left to do, including... More

We paid about $75 for this room in late July, + $5 for parking, so I call that $80. Room was modern & very stylish, and spotlessly clean. There is some neat artwork in the parking lot… We weren't really interested in style, but it is a nice touch. Large, nicely tiled shower (no bathtub). Standard continental breakfast of cereal...

We Made reservation at this hotel based on advertising pictures and representatives. But its way overdone! They started the renovation but Didn't complete it! If they do complete to the advertising level it would serve people well without frustration!!! We occupied 6 rooms and none were completed as promised!

The best part of our stay was that the room was clean and recently renovated, but that was it. The train ran by the hotel all night, making it hard to sleep. The check-in area was dirty and smelled. The breakfast was terrible. There wasn't enough room for everyone in the breakfast room, the breakfast was cold and not enough... More

This hotel was a very pleasant experience for us during our weekend stay over the 4th of July weekend in 2014. The hotel used to be a Ramada, and since the Ruby brand has taken over it appears to have undergone large renovation work and is in very nice shape! The room we had was VERY clean, and we are...
