Charming old hotel. However the noise levels from the street and passing trains was overwhelming. Walls needed painting to cover up all the repair jobs. Having to park on the street was a pain-had to go feed the meter as soon as I woke up! Attentive staff. No coffee shop or breakfast bar. This would be a good hotel for someone wanting to stay in a funky older place on the edge of downtown Spokane and wanting a semi-urban type experience. However for someone on business travel this was not a good place. This was NOT a 3.5 star hotel as listed on your site!! I use priceline a lot for staying in Spokane, and now I am worried about doing so again because I don't want to stay in the Montvale again. All my other priceline experiences have been good but not this one. ...

Overall this is an old, antique style hotel with cool character BUT it isn't clean. I couldn't believe how dirty the grout was in the shower/tub. It was DISGUSTING!! Plus when I did finally decide to take a shower, the water goes hot to cold to hot to cold. It doesn't EVER stay the same temperature. The towels were stained. The walls and paint were cracked and patched very poorly. In my room the smoke detector wasn't even attached to the ceiling. It was hanging by the cord.... I will not stay here again. ...

This is a cute little hotel that has exposed brick walls and antique furniture. The rooms have high ceilings and tall windows in keeping with the early 1900s period. We had two different experiences in two different rooms. Our first room was on the south side of the hotel, one block from the railroad tracks and trains ran all night long. The windows appeared to be single-paned and the noise (at least every half hour) was deafening. The room was also situated above the alley where the restaurant's dumpsters were located. At least two times late at night (2:30 am and later) tons of bottles were dumped into the recycling -- painful to the ears when you are half asleep. The bed was very uncomfortable with a minor ditch in the middle. After a sleepless night we were moved to the other side of the hotel which overlooked the street and the Fox Theater. Even with traffic noise it was much quieter and we didn't hear the trains. The king bed had a much better mattress too. The staff was very accommodating. We used street parking the first night and got a parking ticket after missing the meter by 10 minutes. After that it was valet parking. The parking lot is down the block and across the street and usually it is the desk guy who has to sprint over and get your car. We didn't have a problem but if there happened to be several people who needed their cars at the same time they would have quite a wait. There were minor irritants...remote control for the TV didn't work and the WiFi was out all three days we were there. I went to the adjoining pub to get internet. The reason I am rating this hotel this high is because the staff was so nice (willing to make changes for us), and the restaurants/pubs underneath the hotel and on both sides were convenient, had good food/drinks and atmosphere.
