Great value for the price

We stopped here on a roadtrip throughout the Pacific Northwest and were pleasantly surprised after checking in and seeing how high quality of a room it as for the price. The room was clean, comfortable and included free parking as well as a complimentary continental breakfast. Good choice for Spokane!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There are a few good bars and restaurants within about a 10 minute walk to the hotel - do some exploring of the park near the river as well!

Not happy

This is a motel not a hotel and they do not have enough parking at this location, so we had to park 2 blocks away at their other location and walk (at night in the city) back to our location. Also their breakfast is very limited.

Great location

One thing this hotel doesn't say is that there is a Ruby one and a Ruby two. Our friends were at the other hotel which is about a block and a half away.

Vacation

Had a good experience overall. The room looked nice and well maintained. Wish the staff was more clear on if there was a breakfast at the hotel. Not a lot of parking at Ruby one. Have to park at Ruby 2 and walk over.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Parking at the hotel is limited, so plan on parking across the street at the underground garage for free. Still very convenient even if not on premises.

Going for Tool

We walked to the Spokane Arena from here. It was a nice walk, mostly through a park. The room was somewhat dated but it was very clean. I had read the reviews and took earplugs. I am glad I did. I probably would not have gotten much sleep without them. There were people hanging outside their rooms smoking and drinking but they were cool enough. We expected this because of the concert. Overall, it was a good experience.

Needs cleaning and work

Old motel that has been painted to look more modern. Good location, but musty rooms.

Very comfy!!

Very clean, housekeeping staff seem to do a very good job. GREAT BEDS,,,very comfy. good linens & bedding & very good pillows. Close to everything downtown. I was in Rm #101 no noise issues at all. Parking lot is a little tight, if it is full, you need some skills to get in and out. Parking lot is locked at night, so a little extra security for your vehicle. The buy one, get one free drink coupon for the Sapphire lounge is a nice touch. Nice Staff, nice place to stay!!!!

One Night at the Ruby

We really enjoyed staying at the Ruby. Starting at the beginning, the Ruby has jazz-themed decor which I actually kind of hated, but I liked that they had a theme that really tied the place together. When we arrived, there was nowhere to park, but we were directed to the overflow lot about a block away. Parking was only $5 which surprised me, I've been to cheaper hotels where the parking was up to $15/day! We were also given a buy one get one coupon for wine or beer at the lounge. When we went to the lounge at about 8:00, it was empty, and we had a fun time chatting with the bartenders. The ambience in the lounge is very cool--it's dark but not too dark, has really neat lighting (like a jellyfish-shaped light on the ceiling). The drink menu looked pretty good. When we returned to the hotel at around 10:30, the lounge was packed! Our hotel room was great--everything was clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Two drawbacks: the room smelled very strongly of air freshener when we walked in, and I would have liked it if our bathroom had had a larger bathtub, or if there were a hot tub at the hotel.

Very Over-Rated

This is an old hotel which has gone through some minor room modernization. The beds are comfortable and the room was clean. But the walls are paper thin and the noise level is horrible (passing trains, opening/closing the garage gate, rooms next door, etc.). I will not be staying here again.
