We stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of a family road trip. While not regular customers, we have stayed at this property a few times since the early 1990s. The hotel's location along the riverbank is perfect...make sure you get a room facing the river. The rooms themselves are clean, but rather small, and the balconies are... More

Great hotel for the price. Check in was fast and easy. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was responsive to complaints (a dog and a smoker in a non smoking room) and courteous when I asked about the business center. Easy access to the freeway and very close to Spokane and CDA. Short 15 minute drive up to... More

this hotel I'd say is just for the night as you travel thru, Wouldnt say it's good to spend your vacation at. Breakfast is not complimentary but maybe depending on who you book thru as some folks got vouchers. There is a resturant, the price is fair and it's ok and there is a b.fas buffet.

Hotel is about 20-25 minutes away from Silverwood Theme Park. Quick friendly check in. Front desk handled room requests perfectly. Night housekeeper was super friendly as well. We stayed in a third floor room with a balcony over looking river. Overall very pleased with my stay.
