This is a great little hotel! What a surprise. We rolled into town around 9pm Thursday night. When we drove into the area we were a little sketched out at first as it's downtown & there were homeless people nearby. But due to reviews of this place on other sites & the price we decided to take a chance. So... More

A lot of noise during the night. Not only from the trains next door, but from the elevator, refrigerator, ... 5 dollar for the parking lot is also too much. Friendly staff, breakfast was okay, as can be expected from a motel.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your experience was at Ruby 2. I am sorry to hear that the noise wasn’t managed to your satisfaction. If you stay with us again, please request a room farthest from the elevator to avoid noise. With all the concert venues, restaurants and shopping centers close to our property... More

The price and location was perfect for our bachelorette party. It was affordable for all the girls yet very nice and great location. I'm normally am a hotel snob so I was very pleased and happy with the hotel.

Like it's sister hotel down the street (Hotel Ruby), Ruby 2 has a fantastic location. It is centrally located in downtown Spokane within easy walking distance to a multitude of restaurants, shopping, and other activities. Also, like Hotel Ruby, the price is a great value for the location. The rooms though small, are clean and newly renovated. The bed was... More

The interior decor is modern minimalistic. Our room had a queen size bed and one chair. The room was designed well from an efficiency standpoint. While sitting on the bed (or chair) you do not look directly at the small frig, freezer or microwave. It is positioned so you are not looking at an appliance. That is where the good... More

A good, simple stopover lodging for folks on the road. Beds are comfortable, showers effective, and staff quite helpful. Breakfast is a bit haphazard, but makes a decent start to the traveller's day. The 2 for 1 drinks ticket for Ruby 1's Sapphire Lounge is a nice touch.

Ruby 2 is in a great downtown location. The extras are in the renovations, the art work and the friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was very good. This was a great downtown deal for the price. Only one small drawback . . . the room had a slightly musty smell. Pack your Fabreze!
