3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while on business. Washington State University instructed the staff that we were guests of theirs and that our stay including food was to be billed to them. The Inn still required that we give them our credit card. We were dismayed to find a week later that the Red Lion charged... More

What a great place to stay. Despite coming in on a Priceline deal, the staff upgraded us to a 1st floor poolside room simply because I asked. We sat at a garden table outside our room while our kids swam. Rather than restricting to the room service menu, the restaurant allowed us to order off the full menu and then... More

Check in was a breeze.... we had been given a code almost a year ahead for our visit. The rooms were clean and neat... one complaint since it was a 2/double bed room... the Bathroom was really small. There wasn't even space between the door and the toilet. So getting three of us in and out was tricky. Though as... More

The hotel is not great but to be fair the rooms were acceptable. For a town like Spokane you kind of expect a better standard but I guess you get what you pay for. The hotel is sprawling and tired, I would knock it down and start again if it was up to me. The rooms were clean and decent... More

We recently stayed at this hotel at the end of a road trip to Yellowstone. We spent the day at Silverwood, and got to the hotel very, very late. Couldn't see how the building looked at night other than it is a big property. We got to our room and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The bathroom... More

Room was a decent size. The front desk lady was pleasant. There is not much to the lobby except a free paper. We went to the restaurant and enjoyed our meal. It is not fancy but service and food was very good. There is an outdoor patio. We went to both pools and it was refreshing as the Spokane was... More

We stayed at this hotel after arriving late in the evening in Spokane. The receptionist was rude. There was no food available, no elevator, and no staff or carts to help with bags. Very inconvenient as it is a HUGE hotel. The room was a bit shabby, and the mattress was old and sagged in the middle. Super uncomfortable. In... More

This hotel was an alternate to our original choice of staying across the street at the Holiday Inn. We saved $85 a night here and stayed for a total of 3 nights. The hotel was older but remodeled. It is huge and has several wings. It also has two pools, a tennis court, and gym. The location is great being... More

This is one of our go-to properties in Spokane. The location is great - very close to downtown, but much quieter. The property is very large and somewhat difficult to navigate, but not too troublesome. It is not the most modern in it's décor, but it is always very clean. The beds are comfortable and the linens plush. If you... More
