I stayed here twice during a recent family vacation - our first and last nights of our trip. Our first impression was that this was an unusual property for a Hampton - much larger than your typical Hampton and laid out quite differently. It has a small gift shop and even a small restaurant in the lobby, and the pool / jacuzzi is in a glass-enclosed atrium at the front of the building. The layout leads me to believe that this may have originally been a Doubletree or generic Hilton at one point, or at least was intended to be something other than a Hampton.
That being said, the rooms were quite nice - plenty of space for my family of three. The location is also very quiet despite being very close to the airport and I-90. It's a bit dark at night and somewhat isolated from the rest of Spokane, so don't plan on walking to anywhere for lunch or dinner (which I'm assuming is probably why they have some sort of limited meal service on site). The service was also friendly and helpful, and the breakfast - albeit your typical Hampton offering which varies little from one property to another - was well prepared. One pet peeve I have with Hampton and other similar breakfast buffets is things don't taste fresh or just aren't prepared well (runny oatmeal, fruit that is well past its prime, stale pastries, etc.) None of that was a problem here. In fact my wife commented that the oatmeal was much better than what she can usually find in a hotel.
One small issue we booked a room with a king bed and a pull-out sofa bed, but when we got into our room during our first stay there was no sofa bed, just a regular couch. By then it was close to midnight (our flight didn't land until 11 PM) and we had an extremely sleepy 7-year old in tow, so we chose to just bite the bullet and plop her down in the bed with us. I think it's the first time I've ever seen a Hampton room where the couch wasn't a sofa sleeper. Again it was a small issue and I'm sure the front desk could have done something about it had we asked. The second room we stayed in at the tail end of our trip had the sofa sleeper as booked.
We also enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi, which are much nicer than those usually found at Hampton properties. The pool room was actually comfortable to sit in. Enclosed pool rooms tend to get a little steamy on summer days but it wasn't an issue here.
I would most definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again if I ever visit Spokane again.
