“Business trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

This was a quck 2 day business trip stay and it was you average Holiday Inn. Comfortable beds and above average staff. There was construction so that was a little inconvenient but everything else was what you would expect from a Holiday Inn. They have a nice view of Spokane from their balcony rooms.

Lobby area under construction, numerous construction vehicles in parking lot limited parking area. Construction still going on at 8:30, although we couldnt hear it from our room. Room ok, ground floor area fairly worn. Employee let their small dog wander freely through the lobby area (?). Checked out early, but not early enough to miss seeing where someone had left a large mess on the sidewalk in front of the hotel door-not good. Not what I was expecting from trip advisor reviews.

This property is going through an extensive (long) remodel. I have stayed there often and everything has been good. On this trip the pros were AWESOME staff, food really good, and location for me is great. For once there were cons. The parking (temporarily) is not good w/ the construction and my room was noisy- very noisy. That wasn't really the hotel's fault but the "neighbors" were so loud for so long that I moved to another room. I was exhausted the next day. I wish I hadn't stayed because of that. Again the staff is consistently wonderful and they go much further than required. I appreciate that (and I am not affiliated w/ the hotel or people who work there).

The hotel is in the middle of a complete remodel. It would be better to take one floor or area at a time. The rooms that have not been remodeled are VERY SMALL and the bathroom is cramped.
The employees are very friendly and the breakfast is the same as all the other Holiday Inn's. The grass area is full of dog poo and should be cleaned up either by people with dogs or the hotel, not appealing to look out your room at dog poo. You can hear other rooms water when turned on either in the shower or sink, we were woke up at 5:00 due to the noise. Parking is very cramped and hard to get in and out of when people don't park between the white lines.
The Pillows and linen aren't the same quality as other Holiday Inn's.
We will see if we come back to this Holiday Inn or find another one next time through Spokane.

Room Tip: Top floor, so you don't hear the water pipes from the other rooms.

Thank you for staying with us! I apologize to the difficulties you experienced while you were here. We are doing our best to manage the disruptions associated with our public area renovation. It will be so nice to have more breakfast bar space and a nice lobby and patio for our guests to enjoy! The parking situation will also be alleviated when the project is completed. I hope that you will give us another chance to "impress" you on your next stay.

I stayed there one night due to a jury duty request. There was construction on the building, believe having to do with an expansion. The parking was very limited. The "lobby" area was crowded. However, the staff was courteous. I checked in around 7pm, and had no issues at all. I got a room with an awesome view of Spokane and the park. I didn't get a chance to eat breakfast, but it definitely smelled good! Clean room, smelled good (not that musty smell), comfortable bed, big screen TV, easy internet access. Will definitely come back in the future!

We stayed here one night on our way out to Seattle. They are doing a major renovation of this site. It must have been a hotel in the past - it is definitely not the typical Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was in pretty rough shape when we were there. The lobby was a room about 5 feet by 10 feet. They served their "free" breakfast in three makeshift hotel rooms, which was a little weird and crowded with the other guests. There was the typical construction noises going on the entire time - lots of hammering and yelling by construction workers. There is no pool here and no laundry either. The one good thing was the location, it is just a short walk from a nice park and a few good restaurants. If we passed through Spokane again, I think we would pick a different place.

Dear b_bwamu,
Thank you for staying with us. Yes, we are going through a renovation, and I apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused you during your stay. With the exception of the electricians and the plaster/stone crew, construction is finished by 4:00 pm. The electricians and the plaster/stone crew are finished around 6:00 pm normally. Also be reminded that the construction is happening all at one end of the hotel which should minimize and noise during the day to the guest rooms. I hope that you will come back and stay with us again after the renovation is completed. I hope your trip to Seattle was successful.
