    It was almost directly across from a grocery store and away from the freeway noise.................but that's it..........................

    My first impression of the host was not good; filty fingernails, but it got worse; when I turned down the bed to rest after a long days drive I found mouse droppings in the bed. There were other indications that vermin lived in the room such as chewed bits of paper on the cabinet and on the floor. Initially I didn't twig to that. The outdoor area around the pool was unkempt; the entire place was run down, dirty and already had lots of four legged little friends. I immediately asked for a refund and left. The host tried to get me to move to another room but there was no way. Even the towels looked dirty. One of the lamps by the bed had no lightbulb; I left before I checked the others.

  • Family with children

    The reason we stayed here was because there were no other rooms available in the Spokane are under $100 for the night we needed and we were not willing to spend that much for just a place to sleep. So the only good thing I would say about this hotel was that it was available for a reasonable price.

    Extremely slow wifi and at times was non-existent. Unkept, pool area. No continental breakfast until 8 am and then was just a box of doughnuts and coffee. Hotel was generally very run down, with broken down chairs etc lying around. Room was large and reasonably clean but very rundown. Train across the highway ran through several times in the night, blowing its horn.

  • Group of friends

    Rooms were well maintained with all the basic needs including WiFi.

    Location, its just beside railway line n we could here train horns all thru night!

  • Group of friends

    Cleanwell maintained large rooms

    Exterior not overly inviting however, seemed best within town.

  • Family with children

    The desk clerk was very friendly. The room was very clean.

    The office reeked of cigarette smoke. The office phone was busy for over a half hour when we called to get the password for the wifi. We never got it. The grounds were littered with cigerette butts, half eaten food and random stuff. The free continental breakfast never happened. We were at the motel until after 8 am on a Sunday and the office was locked up tight. The swimming pool is closed for the summer. The web site did not reflect that when we decided to stay there.

  • Older travelers

    Not much.

    The first room had no running water and the tub was dirty. Then the second room had a shower head that sprayed everywhere but in the tub. Flies in the room and the front part of the air conditioner was on the floor. I would not stay here again. I would rather sleep in my car!

  • Older travelers

    Location along my route was good. Enjoyed roaming around Ritzville though the town seems decaying and empty.

    The motel was among the worst one or two we have ever encountered. The advertised pool had not been useful all season. The place was messy. It took a mechanic to get the shower to work. Overall we feel let down and think a full rebate is appropriate.

  • Older travelers

    The window didn't lock and we were on ground level. It wasn't the nicest part of town. The light that was hanging from the ceiling was getting ready to fall down.We had to ask for a light bulb for one of the few lamps in the room.

  • Older travelers

    There is a train track close to the hotel and trains come through "all night long"..........BEWARE !!

  • Older travelers

    The price.

    The advertised seasonal pool wasn't open. There's no ice machine on premises. The in-room microwave and refridgerator were filthy. There was no remote control for the tv. Several light bulbs in the room were burned out. There was no bed pad on the bed (sheet was straight on the mattress). The sink faucet was very difficult to operate.

  • Family with children

    DId not get breakfast as advertised. Staff did not answer phone. Internet connection was very poor. Television was ancient 13" tube with poor picture and no channels. Pool was empty of water and there was no spa as adveritised. Terrible experience in general.

  • Older travelers

    They gave us a good upgrade which ended up saving us money. They were very helpful in recommending a charming nearby restaurant. The room was very basic but okay for our purposes.

    The only downside was the noise from trains that frequently passed by in the night nearby

  • Older travelers

    * It was the cheapest in Ritzville * Good shower * Bed & pillows were comfortable

    * Hot water did not come on in the bathroom sink, husband had to fix it so we could wash our face and hands. * The TV was broken, so a "TINY" little replacement was brought in. * There were crappy curtains on the window (Let TOO much light in), instead of real drapes like most hotels and motels. * Only 1 blanket on the bed and it was too thin, no spares in closet. * The TRAINS all night long SUCKED........ Every single time we just got back to sleep, here come another one.

  • Older travelers

    Very spacious and very clean rooms. Better than a well known chain motel we stayed at the night before.

  • Group of friends

    The motel was easy to get to and served our purpose. It was an older motel, but the staff was very accomodating and helpful. The price was less than some of the newer motels. There was a coffee maker, frig and microwave in the room and the rooms were a good size. There were a few trains that went through town, but they didn't seem to bother us too much.

    It's an older motel, but priced reasonably.
