A newly renovated hotel downtown. The hotel was very trendy, clean and affordable. The breakfast was ok and probably right for the price. The staff was great. Only negative was you could hear the trains passing by in the night.

Very comfortable beds, they took a old chain hotel over (old motel 6 type) & did a great job of cleaning it up & making it nice. They are still doing little things here & there to continue to get even better. However, the train noise is not good at all if you are not a sound sleeper. But there... More

Ruby2 may look like a standard motel, but it's really a great hotel in disguise. Comfortable rooms, great beds, and a price that can't be beat. Throw in friendly, helpful staff, and a great location for bonus points.

Very nice hotel, convenient location for my convention. Updated room and good beds. Staff were excellent and very helpful. Had problems with the t.v. but they fixed the problem promptly. I had no problems with the train going by, but can see how some people might not like it. It did however rarely go by, to be noisy, anyway.

Cute room. Bed was comfortable. We stayed on the 3rd floor which is about eye level with the train tracks. I was so tired I didn't notice out much. Didn't like the shower situation much. I'm short and couldn't reach the handle without getting completely wet with cold water. If you have a choice between Ruby2 or Ruby original. Go... More

I liked this hotel as it is conveniently located near a concert venue to which we were going. The price is reasonable and the room is very clean and updated. One thing to note is that there is a rail line backing onto the parking lot. I barely noticed it, so if that bothers you then you should be aware... More

I was very impressed with the property, especially for the price. It appears to be an older motel style property, but has been stylishly updated and meticulously maintained. Many nice restaurants within walking distance. What a great value!

Staff was really good. Motel is located very close to the railroad tracks so there was some noise. Breakfast in the morning was good and the waffle mix was really awesome! We had a bit of a funky smell in the room.

This hotel has style and flair. It shows a committed ownership. The rooms are very clean and the shower is exceptionally appealling. The location is convenient for walking around the CBD and getting to and from the freeway. Many restaurants nearby.
