Compared with the Staybridge Suites--another hotel in the Holiday Inn chain--this Holiday Inn was no great value. Yes, it was clean. Yes, the bed was comfy. Yes, the restaurant was fine. But for the same money or less with the Staybridge, you get a breakfast buffet and (if you like that sort of thing) a fast-food dinner. Both have a pool and weight room---but the Spokane Holiday Inn version's weight room was miniscule, with a few aerobic machines and all of one--count it--weight machine. You have to blare the TV in the fitness room because you can't turn down the Musak (a clerk explain it goes throughout the public areas). The hotel tries to promote its green-ness---but inexplicably still uses incandescent lights for the bedroom lamps. (Do they think incandescent appeals to a better clientele? Not. It's that better clientele that are using and noticing the use of compact flurorescents.) The maintenance room on the first floor spewed the smell of solvents---paint or lacquer---throughout half of the first floor hallway and into the stairwell. The room thermostats couldn't be turned down below 70 because, a clerk said, they didn't want to risk pipes freezing. "Open the window" to balance the temperatures at night, the clerk suggested. There is a single public computer (for printing our airplane seat assignments and checking email, etc. if you don't have a laptop) that is behind a locked door in the same room as the tourist brochures. And, hello, do you think you can spend $10 to get a mouse with a scroll wheel in this day and age?
All in all, thoroughly average. Yes, I'd stay here again if I had no choice, but you're not getting a good deal for the money. Unless you absolutely need room service, go to a Staybridge or SpringHill Suites.
