Dear 696kelvinm, Thank you for your review. We know our parking lot is limited so we try to accommodate parking needs by having an overflow lot at our sister property, Ruby 2. We hope you enjoyed your time here in Spokane and we thank you for choosing to stay with us. Best regards

Great downtown location. lots of food and entertainment/shopping within walking distance. Downtown was clean. Good value. Rooms are small-ish but all the basics are covered and comfortable. A little train traffic at night/early morning.

Pleasantly surprised by a small and funky  hotel in downtown Spokane. Resturants all around within walking distance and many good ones to choose from, just ask the friendly and very helpful front desk. Parking (some covered) is $5.00 per night. Cheap! Thank you!   Rooms are clean, updated and functional if a bit small. Bikes are available to ride about town...

I tried Hotel Ruby out because I wanted to try some new hotels as I always stay at the awesome Davenport Historic Hotel when I'm in Spokane. I was disappointed and cancelled the remaining days on my reservation. For me the rooms were just too small, too noisy (parking lot right outside window) and too much light coming in from...

The staff here are professional, friendly and immediately resolve customer concerns. Food at the Sapphire is good and very reasonable. Location is great! Rooms are small, especially if more than overnight stay. Rooms do not have adequate lighting.

We wanted to be near downtown as we were passing through for the night and wanted to see the park and eat dinner downtown. Hotel Ruby is well-located in downtown, walking distance to a lot of things. It's a renovated old motel, but the room was clean and nicely renovated recently. The room is somewhat small, but not too cramped....
