The Odell House management were extremely considerate of a travel error that I made in booking hotels in the Spokane area (another member of my group booked a hotel close to our destination in Coeur d'Alene at the same time I booked the Odell House). I had made my reservation at the Odell House in the afternoon of the day... More

Thanks to this traveler for writing. I hope another time we can keep them, but I wanted to note that we were happy to be flexible because it was such a reasonable request! Sure, our policy says we do not cancel reservations withing 24 hours of check in. This assumes that we have held space for perhaps an extended period... More

My husband surprised me with a getaway to the Odell House B&B in Spokane. It was lovely! Really eclecticly furnished room, very comfortable and relaxing. There were fresh eggs left in the fridge and coffee, so we cooked ourselves breakfast and enjoyed it on the wraparound covered porch. It's in a lovely neighbourhood, with some really funky restaurants within walking... More

I found the hosts to be horrible, rude people. The place was a dirty apartment with worn out furnishings. Just stay away from there. Do yourself a favor and seek a cleaner place with a lot less traffic with nice people. This place isn't it.

Since we have not had guest called Mary since November of 2013--and the Mary we did house is an often-repeat customer who always seems happy with us--I am pretty sure this review of a stay in March 2014 is not from any Mary who stayed with us. Perhaps our Mary is speaking of another establishment? Or using a false Trip... More

My husband and I stayed in Unit C for four nights. We had a wonderful time! The unit had a full size kitchen which was perfect because I was able to cook some of our meals to save us some money on dining out. The queen size bed was more comfortable than my bed at home! The sheets, comforter, and... More

Dale couldn't have been more helpful and the set up is fabulous. We had ground floor bedrooms, a bath and a small kitchen.decorated with beautiful things. The setting is in the historic Browns Addition, kitty corner from the Art and Culture Museum and Campbell House. We walked to a music fest and did people watching. Had breakfast at Jenny's and...

These guests were the most charming people--well traveled, fun and interesting. The unit they stayed in was the Gallery, which is our smallest unit, and yes, has two almost identical queen beds which is useful for some stays to be sure. Most of the units have a bigger kitchen than the Gallery, but a more formal one bedroom setup, then... More

My wife and I were driving across country and this place was really nice. They have an electric car charger, fresh eggs from chickens, and a wonderful host. The neighborhood that the Odell house was really nice also. We walked down to a delicious Italian restaurant and ate on their porch in the nice weather.

This was listed as a B&B. We are B&B owners and we certainly know what qualifies as a B&B and that is it includes breakfast. This is more like a nice boarding house. Each unit has it's own kitchen - no breakfast served. Most of the drawers in our unit had somebody else's belongings in drawers. This is advertised as... More

Though it is always hard to get a negative review, I wanted to thank Maureen for helping to make public an issue that is happening in Spokane right now and may continue across the country. It has to do with short term lodging and how it is regulated. We are indeed licensed as a Bed and Breakfast. We have been... More

My husband and I spent 4 wonderful nights in Apartment E of the Odell House during December 2013. The beautiful home is located in a historic part of Spokane, Browne's Addition, near the museum and diverse restaurants/pubs (great food & service). We couldn't have asked for more in terms of our stay! Apartment E met our needs completely, although if... More

This is hands down the best place to stay in Spokane! I have stayed in apartment B twice, it has everything you could ever need, a tiny kitchen including a great stove, pots, pans, cookie sheets, literally everything, they even have a compost! The bed is beyond comfortable, and there is even a little dining table and couches. Dale, the... More

What a sweet review. And SO many thanks for staying with us again! One of the fun things about reviews, and the great guests who give them, is being able to brag in return. This particularly fabulous guest not only is great to look after, but she saved the house a disaster by noticing a drip in the bathroom. Because... More

What a nice comment, from a very nice guest! I wanted to both say thanks and clarify what we offer at the Odell House. Fifteen years ago, when we first started renting furnished apartments to guests, we had phones in every unit. Then, along came the cell phone, dial up Internet went the way of the dinosaur, and most people... More
