quick getaway

For the buck, it's a decent place to stay. Room was supposed to be smoke free, but it smelled of heavy cigarette smoke.

Can't beat the prices

If you're on a budget this is the place to be. The staff is great, very attentive. I used the laundry and the machines worked perfectly.Their breakfast is ok, don't expect anything too fancy (they have waffles on the weekends). Everything was appropriate for the price. I paid $32 a night and for a 2 week stay. The only complain that I have was the water. It was almost always lukewarm. There was no hot water for some reason. The pool was working for the 1st week.

Comfortable classic, a base not a destination

This hotel is a great value in Spokane. It is well worn but clean. No HD flat screens or fancy amenities, but it has helpful staff, an adequate breakfast, a nice indoor pool. The pool even has a lift for handicap access. It is pet friendly, so probably not good for the highly allergic. There is no elevator, so be prepared to carry your suitcase on the stairway. Located on a major arterial, you can get around the north side of Spokane pretty quickly.

When in Spokane in mid to late summer, if you want a tart treat, look for any menu items featuring huckleberries. Fabulous and very regional. You'll find some at the Onion Bar & Grill and other local restaurants.

Business and Pleasure

*The pool was working this time, but they were having trouble keeping the chlorine levels I guess. The pool opened at 10, but when we went down at 11, they were just checking the levels and said they were off, we had to wait an hour. *They removed the waffles from the breakfast bar, leaving muffins, toast and cereal...boring. *I used this site to make the reservation as I was making flights as well. Because I did this I was unable to get points for my 6 night stay. It was only $1 different from the hotel's published rate! *The STAFF is absolutely great, with exception of the owner. She seems to be disconnected, lets say. I have been staying at this hotel for the last 4 years, as it is a good location and value for what I need, but things seems to be changing. I may start looking elsewhere. :(

Visit the Spaghetti Factory downtown. If you enjoy spaghetti, it is a very good dinner and great value. We take a large group almost every visit.

Family wedding @ The Flour Mill

I arrived early, my room was ready. The desk staff were very nice and friendly. I unloaded my car and then immediately changed into my swimsuit and went for a swim. After a 7.5 hour drive, it felt wonderful. The pool seemed like new. It was very clean. My room was on the top floor, which was extremely quiet and safe, as I was traveling alone. The breakfast was basic and healthy. Cereal, fresh fruit, juice, milk, toast, coffee, muffins, and on Sat. morning they had waffles. Coming and going I was greeted by the front desk with Good Morning and Good Evening. I would definitely return to this motel again. I choose it because it was located between the rehearsal dinner location and the wedding the next day.

The Park on the Spokane river is amazing, A must see. I walked for 4 hours through the park and rode the gondola over the river. The weather was a beautiful 75 degrees and sunny.

Bad Night in Spokane

Dirty and smelly room, used gauze pad hanging from towel rack, light bulbs that did not work, uninterested staff, broken pool (no swim), access to room compromised, no seating at breakfast, and the list goes on. Won't stay there again. Wouldn't think of recommending it to anyone.
