Rooms were very clean and the staff was very nice. Even the pet room was very clean. Only stayed one night after a late check in but had an enjoyable relaxing evening. It also sat along a beautiful river and close to downtown and Zags campus

We stayed in a premium queen room, which included 2 Queen beds, a fridge, and microwave. The beds were seriously so comfortable, my mom and I joked about strapping them to the top of the car!

Stayed one night on the weekend of the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Spokane. I booked this hotel through Priceline and got an amazing deal on the room.

I appreciate you speaking with me about your recent stay, I am sorry you had to experience ants in the room you stayed in and that the staff made you feel that you were responsible.
