High ceilings, large rooms and bathrooms, excellent furnishings - the only thing missing is an in room coffee maker. The rooms all circle a common sitting area that goes up to the roof and a large sky light. This was my second stay in Spokane this trip and will be a place I go back to definitely. It's very well...

The Montvale is a quaint, updated older hotel in downtown Spokane. The rate was very reasonable. There was construction in the area so it was interesting getting around. No valet parking or help with luggage if that is something you require. The room was comfortable and very quiet. The ceilings were high and the doors very tall. Rooms open onto... More

We stayed one night at the Montvale and found it very nice. New owners are renovating, so the lobby is stark at this time. Desk staff are very nice. Second floor atrium is very nice. Our room was very comfortable. Price is good. Location was good for walking to shops/mall/park.

This is a historic hotel in Spokane and was lovely. No idea what all the negative reviews are about. Our room was lovely, good size bathroom and very clean. There is only a small car park but we were on a motorcycle so didn't have a problem parking. The reception staff were very helpful. We had a easy walk into... More

My wife and I stayed at the Montvale hotel from July 29-Aug 1 2016. The location is a little ways from everything in downtown but it was a great hotel. The room was great, along with the bathroom it was fairly big. The bed was comfy and the room has a safe as well. Shower in the morning were okay... More

We love old architecture and really enjoyed the Montvale Hotel. Clean, quiet rooms, friendly staff and a great price for downtown accommodations! Good location for walking around town. We enjoyed a cup of coffee at their 2nd floor lobby. We will plan more stays there.

We wanted to stay somewhere we hadn't stayed for our Anniversary. Since we wanted to have a nice dinner and try a few martini bars, we didn't want to spend a fortune on a room. We booked a queen room and we were surprised how spacious it was. We checked in and went downstairs to hit the Gilded Unicorn for... More

My biggest complaint is the mattress being way too soft - nice to sit and watch TV, but not for sleeping. We both kept rolling toward the middle. Also, a weird oscillating noise like a vacuum cleaner could be heard from inside room 317 all night but not in the hallway. Ear plugs would've solved that but I didn't feel... More

I have to give props to the owners because they did a great job restoring this hotel and making it a nice place to stay in downtown Spokane.
