We stayed in a premium queen room, which included 2 Queen beds, a fridge, and microwave. The beds were seriously so comfortable, my mom and I joked about strapping them to the top of the car! There was also a nice little nook with a vanity/mirror outside of the bathroom, which is very handy when 2 women have to get... More

Stayed one night on the weekend of the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Spokane. I booked this hotel through Priceline and got an amazing deal on the room. But, apparently when you book a discount room they stick you in the back 40. Our room was easily a block from the front desk, if you get turned around easily you... More

I was so glad to read that you enjoyed the hotel and shuttle service. What a great time of year to stay and be apart of all the fun festivities on St. Patrick's Day! You are right that our property is large, we have 245 rooms and span approx. 1/4 mile along the river. I promise that we don't choose... More

A whole bunch of us checked in to the Red Lion by the river. The first night, we noticed a bunch of ants near the bed area. They changed our room. The next morning we noticed ants in the bathroom! They kept saying this was the first time anyone had talked about ants...they offered to move us again, but we... More

I appreciate you speaking with me about your recent stay, I am sorry you had to experience ants in the room you stayed in and that the staff made you feel that you were responsible. Customer service is usually one of our strong features but we obviously fell short with you, for that I truly apologize. I am glad to... More

Check in was easy. Room was clean. They had a breakfast that was really good with a lot to choose from. Was in walking distance to the Spokane arena and other down town stuff. Was kid friendly. Will stay here again. Very nice place & people. Plus the price was great!

My wife and I have a bit of a sentimental attraction to this hotel. We stayed here one night of our honeymoon 25 years ago. We had dinner in Ripples on the river, the hotels restaurant, where there was live piano music with dinner. After dinner we strolled the paths along the river. We often go back because of the...

place was very nice and Ripples does there best to accommodate all food and drink needs. Rooms very nice. You can ask for a room near the water. Security was walking the grounds ensuring all access doors were secured.

We drove to Spokane for a WHL hockey game Feb 21. We had phoned ahead and were given the WHL game rate. Arrived early but the desk staff gave us some options on room choice. We decided to wait until room 106 was ready and they called us on my cell phone not long after. Great service. Free parking with... More

I stayed here 2 week-ends in a row only for the rate. (2/21)We were in at 5:00pm and out at 6:30AM. So so angry with one front desk clerk telling me she was not sure I could get coffee at 4:30 to 5:00AM, and that the buffet and coffee was available at 6:00AM! When I made the reservations a gentlemen... More

The room was clean, luckily ours was near an outside door because it was a hike from the lobby. We were able to park near our room and use that door, which was a blessing with an 8 month old. I had planned to ask for this, but the front desk clerk was in such a hurry to check me... More
