The Montvale is a well renovated hotel in a late 19th-century building on the west side of downtown Spokane, right across the street from the Fox Theatre (the home of the Spokane Symphony). We've stayed there twice, and been happy both times. The rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. This past time, we booked a room with two queen beds, which was very large and worked well for a family of three. We appreciated the friendly check-in staff and well-appointed facilities. The free wifi was also a plus. We were able to find free on-street parking, and the front desk staff was clear with us that there was both free on-street parking until 8 a.m. as well as parking in the hotel's lot for a charge. Compared to the other options in downtown hotel (like the Davenport), the Montvale is very affordable for what you get.
Overall we had a very positive experience. We only had two complaints: 1) the noise from the street and restaurant / club below (noisy on a Saturday night, lots of kids on the street shouting, and the windows are single-paned and don't close very well), and 2) the cleaning service, which had some minor flaws. The cleaners came in and made one of our two beds (both of which had been slept in), and changed the towels, but that was it. One of us had been walking barefoot outside the day before, then had left a single dirty footprint that dried on the floor in the washroom before anyone realized. The next day, after the cleaners had been in, it was still there, along with some fuzz / dirt that was on the floor the day before. I can see not washing the floor (although you'd think they'd at least swipe at the dirty footprint), but it was weird that only one bed was made.
Otherwise, we were very happy with our stay at the Montvale, and would stay again.
