We spent the weekend and decided to book at this hotel. What a great decision. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The decor was retro awesome. The room was clean. The beds were comfortable. There were a ton of good restaurants within easy walking distance. We had an end room near the train tracks. We never heard a train despite... More

I had to stay in Spokane for a night to see a concert, and the first thing that struck me was the quality for the price. Sure, the rooms aren't spacious - but I knew that. They're studio rooms, and that's all I needed. 2 queen beds, a bathroom, and from my room, an excellent view of the city. Very... More

I had to make a very quick trip to Spokane and considered doing the round-trip in a day, but decided to spend the night. Since it was a quick turn-around I wanted a reasonably priced but clean place to stay for the night. Hotel Ruby was a unbelievable find. The location is fantastic in the heart of downtown, walking distance... More

Having only the ability to check in one person at a time, especially between the hours of 3 & 4pm, make for a tedious and dispiriting process. It wasn't until 5 pm that I was able to retrieve my key to my hospitality suite. Doesn't this hotel believe in lights and outlets, the latter that are accessible from the bed... More

We have stayed here before and reviewed it on TripAdvisor last year. Have not visited since but this was our first choice when we were in Spokane last week. As mentioned, this is a refurbished motel right in the heart of downtown. There is a small fee for paring ($5) and the lot is small so make sure you arrive... More

Great location in downtown Spokane - easy walk to riverside park, restaurants, businesses and attractions. Ruby is arty, campy, modern, fun. $88 compact room with fridge, microwave, TV and mini breakfast, off-street parking $5. Bicycles too. Adjoining the lobby is the Sapphire Bar.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Spokane! It was such a great price so i was expecting a sorta dirty hotel. It was actually super clean, friendly staff, and great room for the value. Breakfast was just okay, but you'd expect that from any hotel. The only downfall to the hotel was the shower was very old...

This centrally located hotel came at a great price and met our expectations. We had a room with two beds and it was quite large. Very friendly staff. Great art, music and dance themed, throughout. Comfortable beds, clean rooms. They should add something next to the sink to hang a hand towel. Location could hardly be beat - walk to... More

I got this room with a great deal on priceline. It's just about on the edge of downtown. There was lots of places to eat within walking distance. The room was pretty small. I did however like that you can tell it was recently redone to be more modern. The breakfast was pretty tiny with the normal continental stuff. The... More
