Hotel Ruby is located in downtown Spokane and located close to the central attractions. While outwardly the hotel may look a little dated the rooms and fittings have been updated including the addition of original art that helps it stand out from the cookie cutter chains.

The owners of this motel have taken a bare bones standard roadside motel and turned it into a work of art. The linens, shower and other room appointments were updated and stylish. The location is a few blocks beyond the hub of downtown activity: an easy walk. They have taken extra precautions to improve security. Parking is in short supply,... More

We attended a concert and chose the Ruby based on a recommendation by friends and the price and location. Staff was excellent and checking in and out were both easy. We had to park at the Ruby 2 as this main location was full, but that wasn't a big problem as it's only a block or so away. Breakfast was... More

Hotel Ruby is located in the heart of the city and within walking distance to several restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Great artsy and reasonable place with lovely staff! Construction near and getting into hotel abit of a challenge. Good value though! So wonderfully near restaurants, park and shops! Wonderful and helpful staff and we loved the ability to open the garage like door at night for cocktail hour to open up the bar area.

Could have let us know about the construction out front. Rooms were nicely decorated and clean but stuffy feeling. Jonathan and D'Angelo were amazing at the front desk. Loved the free bikes. Close to everything

Dear 808HawaiiGirls, We truly apologize for any inconvenience the construction might have brought. The city informs us only periodically on the process, but we are more than happy to share what we know with our guests. We love our bikes too, such a wonderful way to explore downtown. We sure hope you visit again soon! Best, Hotel Ruby More

We will definitely stay here again when we visit Spokane in the future. Great little hotel, excellent location and very friendly and helpful staff. The bikes were a fantastic perk. The hotel is near the train tracks but didn't bother us at all 😀👌

I loved this hotel. The room is small and a bit noisy and stuffy. But the stylishness of this downtown hotel more than made up for any problems. I l was happy for the elevators as a convenience for the narrow outside stairs while carrying luggage. Parking is cramped but we managed to find a space. Charming and artfully done.

We like the overall look and feel of this hotel! Staff is friendly, rooms are nice! Funky décor and right downtown. Only issue is parking! Breakfast could use a little more imagination, but was decent! The room itself was clean and comfortable! Recommend it to anyone!
