I stumbled upon this gem on a roadtrip, it is a fantastic historic hotel, rich with history and detail, conveniently located downtown. The rooms are spacious, clean, with high ceilings. I only stayed one night and had free parking on the street in front of the hotel. The hotel has a great atrium with free gourmet coffee all day. Checking... More

This renovated small heritage hotel (reputedly once a bordello) is great value and conveniently located just across the street from the Fox Theatre -- a spectacular Art Deco restoration and home of the Spokane Symphony. Next door is a pleasant restaurant and lounge for pre or post performance libations and eats - called Scratch. At the Montvale the beds are... More

The Montvale is a well renovated hotel in a late 19th-century building on the west side of downtown Spokane, right across the street from the Fox Theatre (the home of the Spokane Symphony). We've stayed there twice, and been happy both times. The rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. This past time, we booked a room with... More

Easy to find this very tired looking hotel. I had booked online. Was tired when we arrived. Front desk was just there to check us in. No personality at all. The room was nice looking with fresh paint but there was a loud constant humming - we couldn't determine the source so we called the front desk. Girl said she... More

We booked two rooms for 2 adults and three children, as we really liked the idea and look of the balcony area and atrium, for sitting in after our children went to sleep. This area was fantastic and really lived up to our expectations. The rooms themselves were very serviceable, the carpets really needed changing, I actually told my kids... More

We booked this room for one night through Travelocity's secret hotel deal and, after reading some of the other reviews, I was a little nervous. If it is a modern, convenient, with all the amenities, bells and whistles etc., you are seeking then book another hotel. If you are interested in a historic building in a great part of town,... More

My young niece and I went to check into the Montvale Hotel in Spokane at about 9:30 after a wonderful day at a WSU football game. We arrived to the room only to find that there was a horrible noise (It sounded like a private jet was landing on the roof). I went back down to the desk and told... More

Really. How could a property be so clueless and out of touch with what is going on. With Airbnb growing in popularity, reliable hotels offering discounts.....this kind of inexcusable lack of service is not acceptable. I loved the old world charm of this hotel. Located in the middle of the downtown core, it was a perfect location. I was on... More

This is a cute little hotel right in the heart of Spokane. Within walking distance of almost everything. The hotel itself was nice “old timey” feel which I really liked, almost like stepping back in time. The place was clean, the bathroom was massive and the bed so comfortable. Parking would have been about $12.00 (which might be a problem... More

Stayed here for a night on my way to Montana. the place has kind of a historic feel to it. The rooms were reasonably comfy. For the price we paid, we couldn't complain much. The parking around the area is limited, so that may be a concern to some.
