We reserved the Ruby after reading many of the very good reviews on Trip Advisor. However, it was not at all like that when we arrived. It looks like an old motel with entrance to each room outside, dirty carpeting, uneven stairs, cramped parking and not enough stalls that we were told to go to the Ruby 2 (a couple... More

This hotel was the first stop on a road trip that I went on with my friend. We stayed for only 1 night but we were very happy with it. Parking and location were convenient, free wifi was nice, the room was clean and we felt very comfortable here. Breakfast was also nice here. The front desk staff was very... More

Bathroom tile was broken, dirty grout and the front desk person was rude when we expressed our concern and disappointment. Not all rooms have been renevated so be clear you want one that has been, especially the bathroom.

Unfortunately due to a miscommunication among staff, there was extremely loud music playing right below our room (101). I mean shake the walls, floor, and beds loud. This made sleeping (I had my 10 year old with me) impossible until the end of the show - which was pretty late. The hotel staff was amazing. They went above and beyond... More

Good value in an arty converted motel in a good location downtown. The breakfast is a good value. We appreciate the professionally friendly staff who are alert and attentive. We like the convenience of a fully stocked breakfast bar. Appreciated that the live music at night didn't last until 1 am. so a good night sleep and convenient lounge.

My husband and I stayed here for both our wedding night and reception night (two different nights), and it was great! The staff were extremely friendly and we were given a bottle of champagne. Thank you!

This little hotel is the stunning work of some great young minds. It's trendy, affordable, in an awesome location, and the staff goes out of their way to be helpful. This is not a "5-star" hotel in the usual sense -- no high pile carpets or silk drapes -- but for comfort, convenience, and ingenuity in execution, it's 5 stars... More

We were in town for a large convention and opted to stay at the Ruby. It was affordable, it offered breakfast in the morning, and was close to everything we needed downtown. The room was a little on the barren side, it certainly could have used a dresser, the small two draw vanity didn't really cut it for us. However... More

We searched and searched for a lovely but affordable hotel for our wedding night. Hotel Ruby was perfect! The staff went above and beyond and the room was gorgeous. Parking was miserable but the hotel was lovely, we'd stay there in a heartbeat.
