We have stayed here before and reviewed it on TripAdvisor last year. Have not visited since but this was our first choice when we were in Spokane last week.
As mentioned, this is a refurbished motel right in the heart of downtown. There is a small fee for paring ($5) and the lot is small so make sure you arrive early to get a spot. I am not sure what happens when the lot is full.
The check-in process was smooth and the clerk helpful and friendly. We were early so requested a specific room and although the room was not yet made up, they held it for us (It is a room on the end where no one walks past your window so you can leave the drapes open).
The room is a bit on the small side but nicely furnished and upgraded. In particular the bathroom has been well done. There is a small fridge and microwave. The linens and towels are good quality. The only drawback is no in-room coffee maker (it is available in the lobby).
The continental breakfast is basic but more than enough to get the day started. If you want more, there are some really good diners in the area.
They provide a coupon for a two for one drink in the Sapphire Lounge.
Not only is this a good hotel but the price is among the best you will find in downtown Spokane.
We will definitely continue to stay here.
