Ruby 2 is located downtown Spokane next to the railroad tracks. For us the train noise was not problem as they were no whistles. The room was very nice. The bed was comfortable. We always travel with out own pillows. The people that bought the motel has spent a lot of time and money in restoring the property. Breakfast was... More

This is a motel. They have upgraded it and pretty nice but still a motel . We were on bottom floor with view of parking lot. It was nice to be able to park right in front of room door. Train noise did not bother me. Breakfast looked like standard continental we ended up going to friends for breakfast so... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! If you look at the definition for motel vs hotel, you do find that we fit into both categories. :) So glad you liked the property and hope to see you again soon! Warm regards, Anny More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ruby. Reception was very friendly. The room and breakfast room was tastefully decorated. Reasonably priced underground parking in the downtown area. And they projected Charlie Chaplin movies on the retaining wall outside in the evening!! We would definitely stay there again.

We have stayed here before and enjoyed the hotel. The first time the breakfast room was not completed. This time everything was operational. The hotel is easy to find and there is plenty of parking ($5 fee). Check-in was smooth and friendly. The room was large and well appointed. The bathroom had been totally re-done. The towels were soft. The... More

Thank you for your kind feedback, and I'm so embarrassed to hear about the hangars! Since you stayed, we have put in the type of hangars that can't be stolen, so that shouldn't be a problem anymore. We are glad you enjoyed the property and hope to see you again in the future! Best, Anny More

I have not stayed at the Ruby II for 6 months but did stay there maybe 1 time every other week over the past few years. When I walked thru the door to check in, the front desk worker (Cailona) said, "Mr. Smiley, welcome back". That was before she looked at her computer to pull up my account. It was... More

Everything about this hotel is wonderful, except that I had never been to Spokane before and did not realize it was next to a loud and frequent train which woke me up in the middle of the night a few times. Other than this, the hotel and staff are great. Maybe that was why the price was so good.

This was our second time staying at this Runy2 location and we will definitely return. Clean room, excellent location, price can't be beat. The clerk that checked us in was super helpful. Breakfast offerings are simple, coffee was fresh and fantastic.

Great Price, Clean Rooms, Confortabke Beds and a wonderful staff. I come to Spokane weekly for business and I have stayed at every hotel in town. I have made The Ruby2 my spot. It is clean, consistent and the staff is the best in town.

It is like the trains run inside your room! Terrible noisy in the middle of the night. The trains run by every hour or so and waked me up. This was a terrible experience and such a disappointment. No more Ruby2 fir me.
