First off, you're gonna hear the trains no matter where you stay downtown. The Ruby 2 was clean, beautiful bathrooms, the silent movie playing on the outside wall was off the hook! We really enjoyed the ability to unload and park our vehicle right outside our room, can't do that at the Davenport! Room was lovely, service was great. This...

We often stay at the Ruby 2... the staff is great, and this time they took Canadian dollars at par! We also like to visit the Lounge at the ruby 1, and use the discount on beverages they provide. The rooms are basic, but clean and functional. Beds are comfortable. I wouldn't bother with the continental breakfast... but it is...

C'mon. This is a refurbished old motel next to the train tracks. Fortunately, the trains don't blow their horns and move slowly, but you still hear them all night long. And, the room and bathroom are tiny. You can barely turn around in them. No amount of sleek styling will change that. Plus, they've taken a page right from the...

The room was very clean, WiFi was a bit funky, and front desk service was efficient and friendly. The rooms are well maintained. The trains going by the hotel are noisy, but fortunately no train horns. We slept fine despite the trains coming by, but if you are very sensitive to noise you may want find another place. The location...

For position, Ruby2 is great. A couple of blocks from the centre of town. It offers ample off street parking (for an additional $5), but as a warning: unless you arrive mid-afternoon aim straight for the underground park - it is crazy on the upper parking deck as the check ins increase. The rooms are clean and beds comfy. But...

Thank you for taking your time to give us your feedback! We’re glad that you enjoyed the hotel itself and our great locations. Unfortunately, those trains are something we cannot help but we do have ear plugs at the desk for your use. Come see us again next time you’re in Spokane!

Certainly inexpensive, clean and comfortable. Were able to access our room in early afternoon, receptionist Cheyenne very helpful in advising where shops were so we could get items needed, helped us arrange airport transportation. Great location. Would stay again.

I have no complaints about this hotel- 3 of us stayed one night and paid just over $100 per room. We got a pair of double beds in each room (2 rooms) that even had an adjoining door between them- how perfect is that for a getaway with friends?! I interacted with three different employees in person and on the...

Really impressed with this hotel, especially given the price and prime location. Clean, nice touches with toiletries, but mostly incredible front desk staff (Cheyenne is WONDERFUL!) who were warm, welcoming, and went far beyond expectations! Definitely recommend this hotel to those traveling in this area.
