Great little place in the heart of downtown Spokane is an older motel remodeled and artfully tweaked for guests with budget rather than luxury as their priority. Not all the rooms have had the bathrooms updated so best to ask about that. Windows only front the centre courtyard/parkade so airflow can be an issue. Great staff and very nice complimentary...

This hotel is located in the heart of everything ‘old,’ which is exactly what we like, and what makes Spokane so intriguing. There is plenty to see and do within walking distance, including playhouses, theatres, restaurants, River Park Square shopping centre and the beautiful Riverfront Park. The last time we stayed here was 19 years ago, under the Rodeway Inn... More

We stayed here for one night in late August. What a great place for the money! It was quiet, clean and nicely decorated. The location could not have been better as there were plenty of resturants and shopping close by. I did like that we were in an end suite so that we could leave our blinds open and didn't... More

Just what we wanted--walking distance to most everything downtown, including River Park Square and the Park. Smallish rooms, but very well remodeled; very comfortable King-sized bed, with nice bedding. Very good a/c. Bathroom is small, but very adequate, with a large sink/vanity area inside, and a smaller sink/vanity just outside the bathroom. Usual microwave/fridge. OK closet. All very clean. Wi-fi... More

Not only is it a moments walk to spokane falls, a shopping mall, and multitudes of boutique restaurants, coffee houses, and bars..there is a great restaurant/bar connected to the lobby and best of all FREE BIKE RENTALS!! Simply the best.

Just needed one night to move my daughter in at Gonzaga. Loved the bold colors and comtempory artwork. Didn't get a chance to borrow a bike but liked that they were available. Used the 2:1 drink coupons in the Saphire Lounge and enjoyed the flatbread. Room was clean with just the right amenities. Breakfast waffles were great. A really good... More

Leigh, your comments are appreciated! Glad the flatbreads were good and you loved our artwork. We do use many local artists to decorate the spaces here, and our owner is a big supporter of the arts in general. We hope you can stay again when you come to visit your daughter! Cheers :) More

The motel itself is getting dated. The unfortunate thing is that the bath is the first to suffer. I am assuming this is a recycled old Travelodge, which was not the problem. The problem was that the old "funky" pink tiles in the bath should have been replaced when the motel was remodeled. Caulking can only solve so much. But... More

Hi Tom - so glad you left your feedback about your stay! We do have a few bathrooms left to remodel, and the pink tile will be going bye-bye this winter! Next time you come through town, make sure to request a remodeled bathroom and we will do our best to get you into one of those rooms. Best wishes... More

Originally I was very excited to stay here, seeing that it was downtown and close to everything we wanted to see. First day, room wasn't ready til around 3:30...that was ok. You have to pay $5.00 a day for parking (which is a tight fit), second day came back from "touring" around, no parking available. They have Ruby 2, second... More

Cathy, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Our second parking site at Ruby2, only 1 block east of Hotel Ruby (you can see Ruby2 from Hotel Ruby), is right next door to the fanciest hotel in Spokane, the historic Davenport Hotel - generally not considered seedy. As for Sunday parking, we do try to inform... More

In town for a weekend tennis tournament. The room was very small - a bed and a bathroom - all very clean. At night, can hear the train occasionally and the a/c unit was noisy when it cycled, but it all became white noise and I slept well. $5 parking was ok. The overflow lot was a couple of short... More

My fiance and I picked Hotel Ruby for its price. We were looking for a short getaway and it was perfect. The Hotel is a remodeled motel but they've done a fabulous job of making the building attractive and inviting. The staff was amazing, kind and attentive. You even get to rent a bike for free during you're stay! The... More
