Just came back from a weekend trip to Spokane and stayed at Hotel Ruby, which is very centrally located in downtown, within walking distance from everything, especially shopping centers, restaurants, and the Riverside Park where there are great attractions such as the Spokane falls. The hotel room has obviously been renovated, with red walls, nice fixtures and has a clean, modern feel. There is a microwave in the room, but unfortunately no coffee maker. Even though it's a motel which open access, I didn't feel unsafe, but was woken up at early hours of the morning by neighbors' visitors who were pounding on their doors. Breakfast offers a good variety, and despite being labelled continental, offers hard boiled eggs and waffles, beyond the usual toast and juice that's associated with continental. They also offer toiletries in case you forgot to bring yours, which I did so that was a nice amenity. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
