We just finished up our 2-day music festival in Spokane and the Ruby 2 was our host hotel. They provided outstanding service to all of our attendees. The rooms were great, nicely updated,very clean and the beds were comfortable. The location is perfect for your downtown stay. We will definitely be working with the Ruby 2 again. Thank you very...

The Ruby 2 and I were just not a good match. I booked it on Priceline, which said the room was 651 square feet in size and had a coffeemaker. It was less than half the listed size, and no coffeemaker. Upon check-in, I was first advised parking would be an additional $5.00/night. Getting to my room, I found a...

What a fabulous place!! From the lights in the driveway to the 20's theme (silent film included) to the CLEAN, comfy room. Just love it. Awesome murals too! Quiet and near the downtown entertainment district, the affordability of this place leaves more for fun. The only thing that could be better is the breakfast. Typical of hotels though ☺

I needed a place to stay while waiting to get into an apartment. The rate was very reasonable, affordable. Other motels/hotels had turned me down because, although family had paid for the hotel, I was under 21 and had no credit card. This was not a problem for the Ruby2. I stayed 9 days. Clean, comfortable room. Courteous, helpful staff....

Loved it, the lady at the desk was so helpful when taking our reservation, even gave us a discount because my husband was having surgery. Room has fridge/freezer & microwave. Room was clean & the free wi-fi was wonderful. Will stay again next time we are in Spokane!

Was looking for a good, decently priced, centrally located hotel to ring in the new year. Considering the time of year, wasn't holding my breath to find a decently priced hotel for the 2 days I wanted to stay. Came across this place on TripAdvisor, read the reviews and looked at the pictures so I knew what I was potentially...

A unique gem of a hotel, very clean room, nicely appointed and friendly staff. Nice view of the beautiful power plant twin stacks that were lit up in Christmas colors. Thanks Ruby 2 for an enjoyable stay.

At first we were very impressed..the silent movie was cool, rooms are clean and close to everything downtown. But trying to sleep was very hard. Loud trains and you can hear everything in the room next to you. Ugh! Not sure if we will stay here again.
