We recently stayed at this hotel at the end of a road trip to Yellowstone. We spent the day at Silverwood, and got to the hotel very, very late. Couldn't see how the building looked at night other than it is a big property. We got to our room and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The bathroom...

Room was a decent size. The front desk lady was pleasant. There is not much to the lobby except a free paper. We went to the restaurant and enjoyed our meal. It is not fancy but service and food was very good. There is an outdoor patio. We went to both pools and it was refreshing as the Spokane was...

At check-in, informed we were to have a room in building 6... after telling front desk staff that was not acceptable due to mobility reasons and waiting 20 mins, we were given a room in building 2 - thank you Marisa & Cesley.

We stayed at this hotel after arriving late in the evening in Spokane. The receptionist was rude. There was no food available, no elevator, and no staff or carts to help with bags. Very inconvenient as it is a HUGE hotel. The room was a bit shabby, and the mattress was old and sagged in the middle. Super uncomfortable. In...

This hotel was an alternate to our original choice of staying across the street at the Holiday Inn. We saved $85 a night here and stayed for a total of 3 nights. The hotel was older but remodeled. It is huge and has several wings. It also has two pools, a tennis court, and gym. The location is great being...

This is one of our go-to properties in Spokane. The location is great - very close to downtown, but much quieter. The property is very large and somewhat difficult to navigate, but not too troublesome. It is not the most modern in it's décor, but it is always very clean. The beds are comfortable and the linens plush. If you...

Decor has seen better days but the place is clean enough and the beds are comfortable. Unusual set up can lead to a blocks-long walk to your room. The pools were ideal for my friends children and for the 100 degree heat. On-site restaurant was pleasant (actually the happy hour food and dinner was better than average for Spokane) and...

Firstly, there are two Red Lion Inns within a half mile of each other on the Spokane River and this isn't the right one. The Inn at the Park has a huge outdoor pool with a big slide to make the kids squeal. This one has a small undistinguished pool. The rooms are clean. Both the staff at the reception...

I appreciate you taking the time to write about your recent stay. Some of these items I can definitely address immediately. I agree that the Front desk does need to assist the person in front of them first and I personally apologize for this. I'm glad you found the rooms to be clean and the location and restaurant was enjoyable....
