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

My honey and I went for a concert at the Bing Crosby Theater and were given an excellent room rate for the night. Just had to show the front desk our tickets. The room was clean and quiet and super convenient to walk to and from our concert just a couple minutes away. We had a few appetizers from the... More

My husband and I loved Hotel Ruby! It was located right downtown - incredibly close to the mall, a bunch of restaurants, and a local brewery. We received a voucher for the hotel bar and had a good time there too. The hotel room was trendy and cute - though very small. The size didn't bother us at all but... More

Okay, it's a restored, 1960's motor lodge. But it's done well, with a great staff, nice breakfast (included) and $5/night secure parking - on site! That's a big deal in Spokane, where the City seems bent on raising every bit of revenue from parking fees and tickets. Truly a bargain. Rooms are smallish, but more than adequately furnished with fridge... More

Hotel Ruby is located in downtown Spokane, across from the Davenport, close to trendy bars and shops. The room was clean and well-maintained, the breakfast with waffles, orange juice and locally roasted coffee was a hit. The staff was friendly and helpful. We really appreciated the parking lot that is locked during the night and the large flat screen TV.... More

Second time staying here. Both times for concerts--once for Knitting Factory and this time for a concert at Bing Crosby Theatre. The hotel did not disappoint again. Friendly people, comfy beds, great shower, good location! We'd stay again!

First of all, the pictures online are not representative of what this place actually looks like. Secondly, the front desk person, Marcel, had an attitude from the minute we walked in. When we walked into our room, it was disgusting. There were stains on the sheets, mold in the shower, etc. I went in to talk to Marcel, he said... More

IMPORTANT NOTE about this review. We had no one named Marcel working at Hotel Ruby the night you came to check in. We did not have a reservation that came in that night and left again with these complaints. This review has been posted to the wrong location. I have advised TripAdvisor that this is not the correct hotel and... More
