I booked our room using our hard earned c.c. reward points on a computer. This hotel was more points than others I checked on but thought it worth it for the river view. Upon arrival we watched bus loads of teenagers unloading to stay there. Not only did we not get a river view, but had to endure late at...

Thank you for your recent review of our hotel. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a river view room, only riverside, and as you noticed we do have a lot of teams stay with us. We hope that you felt free to contact the front desk with any concerns about the noise level during your stay as we do enforce our quiet...

Was in Spokane for a basketball tournament and the hotel near the sports venue...quite delighted so many amenities are so close: grocery store, movie theatre and lots of restaurants! Room was clean and comfortable. Internet was great. The breakfast buffet had farm eggs and a delicious raisin bread!! Wonderful trail for a run or a stroll.

Spokane is a neat city, but we were disappointed with the hotel and learned a good lesson. When we checked the room had smell. We chalked it up to stale air but the smell didn't go away. Realizing it was pet friendly we determined that a dog pooped in the room before us. It was cleaned up but the carpet...

Stayed here with my older parents and their dog. The staff was delightfully friendly at check in and very accommodating for our dog. The pet friendly rooms are all in the same area, but yet the rooms and hallways were well kept and clean. The room itself was nice and the beds delightful. Our ground level room had a sliding...

we stayed there a week ago traveling through Washington. I have never stayed here before. The desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. The rates were reasonable. The rooms were clean and not too fancy. What more could you ask for in a hotel. I liked it and recommend it to others.

We stayed in this hotel for a night during our short trip to Spokane. The hotel rooms were clean, it was super quiet and the beds were comfy. But outside the rooms were smelly and we saw stains on the carpets (in the corridors). We were lucky to book this hotel through Priceline and not paying full price, as it...

Didn't get to stay around the hotel a lot, but it is very nice and close to the convention center. So accessible to other attractions! Room was nice and clean, loved the little extras that they provided and the staff is really nice. I forgot my shampoo and they had tons of extra for me! Tried the buffet breakfast, lots...

Reviewed 19 May 2015

For $167/night I was expecting a really nice hotel with river/park views. The rooms were modest - view was less than average. The long hallways felt like a college dorm. The bathrooms were tiny - yet the rooms were a nice size. Overall a disappointing experience for the money.

I am very sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience. I agree that our hallways can be very long, but we try to use the length of our property to our advantage by providing more amenities like two outdoor pools, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. I hope on your next trip into Spokane we would be able to provide...

We stayed at this hotel when my daughter graduated from Gonzaga University. It could not be more convenient to the university. It literally abuts the university, which you can reach without a car.
