There is a nice sized living room/ dining room area with a pool table, board games, books, and a television. We have stayed here many times and had friends from the area come visit us. There is PLENTY of room to hang out and catch up. There is also some fire rings/ seating area outside and a pool area inside with 2 hot tubs. My kids love that! We have stayed here both in the summer and in the winter (skiing is just 20 minutes away) and get 2 rooms every time we are there.( 5? trips) The rooms are not huge but we are either sleeping or in one of their dining/ family areas together. Everything is always clean and the staff is ALWAYS very helpful, personable and FRIENDLY. Our family LOVES this place.

Hotel is very clean, easy check in with delicious cookies available at check in, nice room, very friendly staff and excellent location. You can’t beat the price. I don’t think there are any other accommodations in the area that provide the same value.

This hotel is a gem. Everything was wonderful - and the details within the space, including the gas outdoor fires, the pools, the details in the rooms, the billiard table, the entry space - excellent and well designed. We were very impressed! The staff were all accommodating, professional and more than willing to assist with kindness and capability. You can see they love to work there. As well - the Farmhouse Restaurant is a gem as is the Cantina. We loved the brisket. It exceeded in every single way. THANK YOU! We will definitely be back.

No cable tv at night after a day n the sun. The food was not great and when reported to staff they said sorry there is y anything we can do. There are no mirrors in the hotel other than the bathroom. The hot tub was good and the fire outside was nice ambience. It was fun to have the pool table and place to hang out.

Dear Guest. Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the spas and outdoor fires. It sounds like you experienced a few issues, though. We apologize for the satellite outage and are sorry you didn't get the breakfast you expected. Because there is no kitchen at the hotel, we are limited to a continental breakfast. For a hot breakfast, we recommend our restaurant, Breakfast Cantina, which is just across the street. Thank you for your suggestion about the mirror. We will take that under consideration. We hope you will you come stay with us again. Hotel Ruby Ponderay.

We like this hotel because it is conveniently located near Sandpoint (5 min. drive), sits well back from the highway which makes for a quiet night's sleep, has clean rooms, friendly staff, and amenities such as free breakfast, all-day free fruit and coffee, pool, bicycles available, and a very competitive price compared to others in the area.

We enjoyed the two fire rings outside the dual hot tub and pool inside. Excellent fitness center. Breakfast was VERY little. Tucked behind other businesses-tricky to find. Very clean. Ice handy. I recommend.

I wish the bed would have been more comfortable. Room smelledlike dirty feet. Loud noise in hallway and up stairs after 10. Staff was friendly and helpful. I think carpet needs cleaning and a new bed would make a difference.

We know that hotels can be noisy places, especially on the weekends, but when guests report issues to us, we're more than happy to address any inconsiderate behavior with neighboring guests. We hope you will give us a try again.
