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.

When looking online for a hotel in Spokane, we came across Montvale Hotel. The pictures made the place look very clean which was important to us with a three month old baby with breathing problems. We arrived to the hotel only to find out that the advertising was very far off from the atmosphere, cleanliness, and hospitality that was portrayed... More

We booked this hotel through Hotwire! What a gem! The hotel was very clean. The rooms were spacious... Including the bathroom! We love all of the art and furniture in the main rooms. Classy and sophisticated! Abbey at the front desk was very helpful. We will definitely stay here again if in Spokane! Thank you for a great stay and... More

This is my second time staying at the Montvale and everytime I stay here it gets better. The staff was very accommodating and our room was very clean(the presidential is breath taking). I also noticed that our room had newer pillows from the last time we stayed(the last they were kind of let say lumpy). I love how it is... More

The Montvale Hotel in Spokane, Washington, is one of those hotels if you are lucky enough to know about it, you are in for a wonderful surprise. The Montvale is like no other hotel I have stayed in. I thought at first I was in Europe as the flair of the place as well as the décor, was absolutely European.... More

My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at the Montvale. We were disappointed. The room had stained fabric on the chair and soiled carpeting. You could hear bed noise and foot steps from the room above, due to squeaky floors and an old building. The second floor lobby was a nice place to gather.

Terrible location; no amenities; unprofessional help; noisy; broken down furniture (just because it's old doesn't make it classy!); run down neighborhood; bad parking. It is 90% of the reason I will never return to Spokane. Ugly place, ugly people. Apparently the "decent" people climb up to the "skywalk" to get away from places like the Montvale. In Europe this would... More

I called this hotel today to book a room in the future. I called and the employee said she was caught up checking people in and out so couldn't take my reservation. She promised to call me back within a few minutes. Four hours later, there was no return call so I called again. This time I was put on... More

The person at the front desk was so bad we left and stayed at another hotel. We will probably still have to pay even though we did not stay because it was non-refundable. We have stayed here 4 or 5 times in the past and liked it, but never again if we are forced to pay for the night we... More
