“Nice clean rooms, warm welcome by Jay & Casse. Great internet access.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Nice clean rooms. Warm welcome by Jay & Casse. Internet access is great and strong in all rooms without delay in logging in and stays logged in without interuptions. Lots of parking, Variety of breakfast items, something for everyone. Warm delicious cookies served each evening in the lobby area.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. If you want a view of the city higher level floors are better for view.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for one night and we enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and beds were very comfortable. The 24 hour pool is certainly a bonus. I was able to enjoy a soak in the jacuzzi before bedtime without kids screaming in the pool. I have read the reviews from others who have 5 star expectations especially regarding the FREE breakfast!!! I don't know what they had paid, but we got a good deal booking online and we sure got our money's worth. Not the best location, but safe. We took the dog for walks a few time throughout the day and no concerns. The area is somewhat industrial looking.

This is definitely an older motel that has been updated. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The breakfast (with typical fare) is in a nice location on the top floor. The staff was very friendly. However, there was some peeling wallpaper in our room and the carpet in the hallways was stained and needed vacuumed badly. We didn't try the pool or the fitness room. The hotel is not in the best location. This would not be at the top of my list of hotels in Spokane.

Stayed the night here on a visit to Gonzaga University. Staff was kind and helpful. Room was clean and beds were very comfortable. After a long drive from Montana it was nice to settle in for the night, watch some tv and get the sleep we needed.

The breakfast offered in the morning was adequate, not great, but decent coffee, fresh fruit, lousy eggs, good biscuits and gravy and some yogurt. Not the best hotel breakfast we have had but you can get something to eat before you start your day.

One of the elevators was broken and since there are events that taken place on the 5th floor, it can quite a wait till the elevator arrives.

Stayed in Jan. They only had 38% of capacity. I got a super deal via an internet site like Kayak.com or Expedia. Clean. Friendly staff. Cookies and coffee in the evening. Morning breakfast. Free newspaper. HVAC OK. Lighting a bit dim. Pool and sauna 24/7. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Nothing special

I didn't book this hotel as it was apart of a tour of Spokane and Yellowstone national park. But overall, it was good.

Here are the things I noted:
The room was excellent
The breakfast was amazing
The gym was small but moderate
The pool was large and spacious
The hot tub was great
There was music playing in the halls which was a nice touch
We didn't have any problems during our stay

Overall, a great experience! :)
