Very fun hotel! We loved the silent movies playing on the outside wall of the building as well as the beautiful paintings! Breakfast was great and the rooms were very clean and well laid out. Central downtown location, close to great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and Riverfront park.

Ruby2 is nothing fancy, but they did a nice job when they remodeled. The rooms have updated decor, are comfortable (standard motel-style) and clean. We only stayed in Spokane one night, so this was perfect for us. It is in walking distance to restaurants and they offered a free bike rental, though we did not use it. If you're looking...

Simple, clean, funky and fun. Loved the photo booth in the lobby. Wish the weather would have been nicer to use the cute bikes - but planning to next time. Convenient to anything you want to do downtown so there is really no need to drive once you get there. Looking forward to our next stay.

Very clean and spacious room and bathroom, everything looks new. Very friendly staff; free bicycle rental (they even let me take the bike on the day I checked out!) On the downside - close to the railroad, trains can be heard.

This reno'd motel is clean, simple... convenient. The staff is fantastic. I'd HIGHLY recommend, and will return in the future without hesitation but the train tracks across the parking lot need to be acknowledged. The train tracks are SUPER busy (almost continual trains running while we stayed on a Wednesday night). Staying at Ruby2 might be a struggle for very...

Came into Spokane via Train, was later than our check in time. The staff was very helpful and understanding, and gave us the room so we could get some extra rest, and a place to shower before heading to our destination

We stay at the Ruby 2 every chance we get. The rooms are clean comfortable and the staff is great. This is the third year we have stayed with them for the St.Patties parade weekend and the Irish Drinking Team Pub crawl. Location is great. Easy to walk to local restraunts and night life. I recommend this hotel to anyone...

We had a nice stay here. It's centrally located and appears to have been recently updated. Everything was nice. It's a little close to the train tracks but it wasn't terrible. The trains at least slow down as they proceed through downtown Spokane.

Great location in downtown Spokane! It seems that all the rooms have been recently refurbished and are adorned with unique artwork. Overall, very happy with the quality of the property, my room, and service. While this didn't bother me, a note for light sleepers is that the hotel is right next to train tracks, which was very noisy overnight.
