small awkward rooms, but close to venues. good for just sleeping, but not really for relaxing. only one plastic red chair is in the room. beds were very comfortable and just at the time we stayed, a lot of construction noise -- not the hotel's fault. I love that you have red bicycles for people to borrow and ride about... More

Overall experience was average. For the most part, staff was very helpful. The only sour note was during check-in - front desk wasn't overly friendly, he was not overly rude, just a personality issue - not very warm. Housekeeping services were great, although, replacing shampoos and towels were a little excessive, considering towels were used once. Consider giving the option... More

Stayed overnight while attending the Mary-Chapin Carpenter concert at the Bing Crosby Theater, 1 block away. I was unaccompanied, as my wife refused to ride on the back of my sportbike ( I am 63 but immature and proud of it!). The Ruby portrays a classic motel style, three storey walk-up (an elevator is available) and outdoor walkways. The hotel... More

Situated right in the middle of downtown we found this place to be excellent. The rooms clean and well appointed, good use of space with a fridge freezer, microwave and the other usual appointments. They give a voucher for buy one drink get one free in the cocktail bar at the front of the hotel, and that got us to... More

In the heart of Spokane and can easily walk to the area sights. We have stayed at this hotel for many times over the years and several hotel name changes. Nice breakfast area. Definitely the best now.

great location; walking distance to shopping and restaurants and entertainment venues. Friendly and knowledgable staff. That's all I have to say at this point and now I'm just filling this up to make 200 characters; I don't want to write a book about this and I think that saying that we liked the place should be good enough!

This is an updated motor lodge. The property is older, but has been refreshed and redecorated. The location is right downtown, which is nice. Just be warned that there are train tracks and select a room that is not on the same side as the tracks if you are sensitive or would be bothered. There is complimentary wifi, breakfast and... More

Set in the heart of the Spokane arts district, Ruby Hotel is a stone's throw from many great night haunts. The great value of the place, mixed with the quality of the room and service makes this place a great option for those interested in staying the night. I would highly recommend.

The fact that the Ruby is just around the corner from the Bing Crosby Theater, was my initial draw to this hotel, but everything about my stay there was excellent. I arrived around noon, knowing check-in was at three, but parking was no problem. The next day, check-out was eleven, but I was able to leave my car there until... More
