We've stayed in many hotels across the Spokane area and our track team ended up booked at the Fairbridge. It's not a chain I normally use, and probably won't use again.
For the price, it is what it is. No, it doesn't look like the photos. But our non-smoking room was smoke-free which made me happy. Our room was located on the first floor behind the front desk. So we could hear everyone and cars are parked right up against the window. We had a few safety concerns because the windows didn't seem secure. The room doors also required being securely locked - they don't close on their own.
There are no amenities- no refrigerator or microwave. There is free breakfast and the kids seemed to be able to get a variety of continental types of items and made hot waffles.
I wore shower shoes in the shower and in the room. I checked the sheets and they were all white and the beds were a bit firm. I travel with Clorox wipes and cleaned the bathroom sink, counter, faucets, toilet, and door knobs. I left a tip for the cleaning staff, so our room was fully cleaned and made up when we returned after a long, hot day at the track. I didn't have any complaints, but I also purposely did not inspect any of the room to closely. I did have a few bites on me, but I told myself they were from being outdoors, so I can't say it was from the hotel room.
I didn't interact with the staff, but they weren't rude or friendly. Disinterested is probably the best word.
It wasn't awful, but we have already made plans to have the school make reservations at another hotel when we return next year.
Bright side - Dick's restaurant is across the street! (Washingtonians know why this is exciting!)
