We were really disappointed with this hotel. We checked in on a Friday and the line stretched all across the lobby, took 30 min standing in line. We got a standard 2 queen room and as we entered, the over powering smell of cigarrette smoke was terrible and overwhelming. We asked for another room and the front deak clerk gave us an obvious annoyed looked and said 'there is no smoking in our hotel'. We realize their policy but people DO break the rules and smoke in their rooms. The smoke smell hit us a like a brick wall and I'm shocked the maid service wouldnt report this and have the room properly aired out/cleaned before allowing guests back in. There was a convention in town that weekend so there were no rooms to swtich or any other hotel in town available so we had to spend an unbearable night in this place. In the morning, we opted for their breakfast buffet at $13 per person. The selection was so disappointing. The food was no more than glorified 'complimentary breakfast' choices. Juice, toast/bagels you toast yourself, cereal, stale muffins, rubbery egg beater eggs, overcooked, dry bacon and fruit that was swimming in juice as if if it was cut the night before. This is the usual quality you see with free breakfasts in hotel, not for a paid buffet. I do not mind payiing at all but please offer quality food. There was also a breakfast menu where you could order ala carte items and I noticed the food coming out for other guests was much better than the more expensive buffet. Overall, this placed is overpriced for a hotel that needs much updating. Plus there is overnight parking charge of $9! We paid total of $192 for a small standard room--crazy price for a hotel lacking in so many ways. On the way back into Spokane, we stayed at the newer Oxford Suites right next door for less money that includes an amazing FREE breakfast, clean, smoke free rooms and amazing staff service.
