Very clean rooms, but also very small. Old school with slight updates. Horrible parking though. We were in our room for maybe 5 minutes, other than to sleep, so this was fine. However, if you were to spend a lot of time in your room, spend the extra money and hit the Davenport. :) It was a bit loud around... More

Normally, we stay at a different hotel. We were in Spokane for a concert (the venue not being the concert hall across the street) but looked into hotels close before making reservations and Hotel Ruby was one of them that popped up. It also had a lounge, which we were looking for... something to do after the concert. Free breakfast... More

Stumbled across this cool little retro hotel in downtown and we are hooked! Great location where you can park the car and not get back into it till it's time to go home, easy strolling distance to the riverfront park and pathway, the mall and movies, all the theaters and great places to eat downtown. Room was tight but filled... More

We booked one night but added a second because it was clean, comfortable, and right downtown. So much is within walking distance. There is a lot of street noise, but we expected that because it is right downtown. The king bed was very comfortable with excellent pillows (always a problem for me). Rooms are small, but have a second sink,... More

We stayed here on New Year's Eve in the Deluxe King Suite and really enjoyed our stay. Clean, nicely appointed room in a super location downtown. The staff was really pleasant and helpful and overall is was a good value and wonderful stay.

We booked one night at the Hotel Ruby on route to Montana. First off, the good stuff: we found the staff to be very personable, and having a little cocktail lounge right off the lobby was great for a nightcap. It's very centrally located. The continental breakfast the next way wasn't fancy by any means, but it was totally decent(make... More

$73 plus tax a night, $93 News Year eve, fairly clean. Noisy as it's near railroad tracks and a busy intersection. Ruby is downtown, near the city centre mall -- the mall has some great shops. Overall it was good.

The room decor is modern and no complaints with the bed. The room doors face the outside so there is a lot of noise as people walk down to their rooms. This motel is close to everything which makes it nice.

Our second time staying here and we were happy both times. Always clean, great service, free breakfast, and a bar in the hotel! Only downfalls are the parking situation and the mattresses. The on site parking only holds about 20 cars, after that you have to park at their sister hotel about two blocks over and walk back to The... More

We appreciate that you took the time to leave a review about us, thank you! So glad to hear you had another great stay here. Our rooms are quite eclectic and come in many different sizes. If you request the north wall, then the queen rooms are a bit bigger than the rooms on the south wall, and are about... More
