Booked a double queen room online at a really decent price for the first night of a week long car trip with my 78 year old mother. The first hiccup came as I checked in - no elevators, which was my fault for not checking in advance! As other reviewers have stated, though, the staff was attentive and helpful, immediately...

Stayed here for one night on June 27,2016. This hotel was clean and roomy. Free WiFi is provided together with a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave. Delicious breakfast is included. Arrive hungry for breakfast as there are many foods to choose from for your first meal of the day. Enjoyed everything that I tried. Staff is friendly and helpful throughout... More

My family and I have been traveling for almost 3 weeks mostly camping. We have 2 kids and 2 dogs, and a broken I phone! That's what brought us to Spokane, it had the closest Apple Store to us. The staff was friendly on the phone, I had many questions about pool hours(kids) laundry(camping) and checkout(needed sleep). The room was... More

We found this motel acceptable, but getting a tad worn out. The location is great but everything would benefit from an upgrade. The service was great and the staff friendly. If you are looking for something special, this probably isn't the place to stay.

We stayed here once before so we knew what we were getting into and still we booked it again only because we knew how to get there. We were on our way down from Banff and it is convenient to the freeway. The property is huge which is why we were there before - attending a collegiate athletic event where... More

We enjoyed a stay here back in June and it was very nice. Pet friendly, cozy beds, and right on the river where you can take a walk all the way in to town. We would definitely stay here again. Great spot, loved it!

Very nice location. Horrible experience with following through on the confirmed rates, overcharged both nights in spite of assurances the bill would be corrected but once they have your card # - good luck

Booked on line sight unseen and were pleasantly surprised. Upon check-in we upgraded for a bigger and nicer room facing the outdoor pool. The staff were VERY accommodating to our request! Although the hotel is showing it's age, we found the staff and amenities certainly made up for it. The popular Centennial Biking Trail was right out our door and... More

There's old and quaint. Then there's OLD. The Red Lion on Division Street is in a great location--step out one of the back doors and you are right on the river trail--one direction leads to Gonzaga University; the other direction leads to downtown Spokane.

We stayed with a dog and were given a room with a sliding glass door that allowed easy access to lawn and river walk. The staff was warm and welcoming, the room clean and the bed comfortable. Though we didn't swim, it was nice to have a pool on a hot day - people were enjoying this amenity.
