I love Spokane! - 11/5/2019
Spokane is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. The people are down to earth and friendly. It's very easy to get around and doesn't have the bad traffic of a big city. There are tons of beautiful city parks - pretty much every neighborhood has at least one nice park. There are lots of options for food, going out, and entertainment. Spokane gets a lot of musical and other arts that come to the various venues. I've always felt very safe here and don't have to worry about crime. The area surrounding Spokane includes many opportunities for outdoor recreation, whether it's boating on one of the many nearby lakes, camping, hiking, fishing and hunting. Being from the Seattle and Portland area, Spokane has felt more like home to me because it's very laid back. I would really recommend Spokane as a nice alternative for folks looking to move away from a bigger city. If you are coming from a smaller town, you'll appreciate the "home town" feeling Read More

Schools, yes. Raise a family,eh. - 11/4/2019
I have lived in other cities, but Spokane is where my family lives. I was raised here, left then came back to be with family. It is a beautiful city for the most part, they have really put effort into beautifying downtown area, and if you can look past the homeless people it really is nice. Riverfront park is like the kitchen where everyone gathers for special events. They invested their money well down there.
Jobs are not readily available. If you have no skills it is easy to work at McDonalds, or some other food industry as there is a restaurant on nearly every block. If you are in your thirties and don't have a degree it is tough to find a career. Advice would be to go to the local community college and get a certificate to do something at the hospital or for Avista.
Housing has gone through the roof here, the cost is outrageous. The rent is terrible for what you are getting. We need updated, clean rentals for families, but also the apartments in the area Read More

Mentally Ill white supremacist low income joke - 11/3/2019
Lived in area growing up as a boy then left for ten year until I was in need of some recovery time. This is not the place to heal. Someone here said it best. Absolutely no welcoming or appreciation for ones existence as the norm- could have something to do with the white supremacist culture embedded in the subconscious of every low income ignorant entitled clown stuck here.

Business fraud and unprofessional practices are a common routine here. These people have no value of money or themselves there for any work related experience is an absolute joke. It's very classist in the inland NW. Like blue collar and white collar dont mix while the little dick syndrome is reinforced by your vulgar work attitude. Cant even make a decent living here as a hard working reliable and honest individual since I ain't part of they sick corny white supremacist guy club of disgusting thin skin entitlement. I can say this since I'm a mixed blood white who has a light tan and physical Read More

Absolutely No Recommendation. - 10/8/2019
Spokane is one type of location where you are straight up advised to find a better place to go to. Absolutely dysfunctional setting. Spokane is the absolute worst type of community that one could ever run into. Absolutely no welcoming or appreciation for ones existence as the norm. Neighborhood Watch have affiliations with the Ku Klux Klan and make up false police reports to play Russian roulette. No sense of friendship or real leadership worth your time. Police will treat you like a felon.

Worst Air Quality in the Nation. Worst Job Market in the United States several times in a row. One of the worst places for property crime. Business fraud and unprofessional practices are a common routine here. Bad neighbors who are unwelcoming and suffer from severe psychological, emotional, and behavioral problems. Bad neighbors who attract skunks with absolutely no recourse as to the damage that it causes towards property and quality. Crime is widespread and is never appropriately Read More

Wonderful City to Live In - 8/9/2019
Spokane is a wonderful city. Less traffic and less rain than Seattle or the east coast. You get a beautiful four seasons here, with no season all that extreme (including winter - winter is just cold enough to have snow and lots of skiing. The south hill area is super unique, though there are loads of other great neighborhoods here. Unlike east of the Mississippi, you won’t find a truly bad Read More

Worst Type of Place for Anybody - 7/31/2019
This will be my last and final review about Spokane. Last post on this website for that matter. Spokane Police instead decided to lecture the public about safety rather than punishing the kids who damaged a car driving by. Showing absolutely no respect for veterans who have served for the army. They didn't even charge the teenagers who made threats to an army veteran. Who else thinks this is absolutely idiotic? School districts that have personnel that don't actually teach but coddle troubled youth breeding more problems. Petty and backstabbing excuse for workplace environments.

No community involvement except for a public relations campaign. Absolutely no policing of kids that go out and cause trouble. What good is a neighborhood watch or a police force if they don't lift a finger to help out but be apart of the problem? People are way too complacent with a place that shows no signs of progress and shows the exact opposite. I am moving out of here and I am not coming Read More

Very bad place to be - 6/27/2019
There are numerous people who play baseball in the park across from my house, Rochester Park, and there is no issue. But there is a group of men who are constantly and consistently hitting baseballs into the front of my house and into my car. I keep the balls to discourage them from hitting my house but that doesn’t stop them. I have over 20 baseballs they have hit into my home and car.
I called Carl Strong in the Parks Department on May 10 at 9:19 am, May 10 at 9:50 am, May 31 at 9:54 am, June 5 at 8:56 am and I went to his office on June 6 and was told he and his supervisor were in a meeting.
I called Jennifer at the Parks Department on June 3 and she called back a few days later and said she would look into signage. Nothing happened.
I called Garrett at the Parks Department to make an appointment and had to leave a message, he never called me back. I called Garrett again on June 12 at 8:10 am and left a message. He never called back.
On June 4 one of the Read More

There’s a reason for all the bad reviews - 6/16/2019
There’s a reason there are so many bad reviews... I moved here a couple years ago and was pretty surprised at the ignorance of the people born and raised here. There’s a local pride in Spokane that is admirable and understandable when you’ve spent most or all your life in an area, but as many others stated, this place is disproportionately overridden with drug use, poorly educated and just an overall complacency that makes you wonder why everyone around here settles for such a poor quality of life. Seeing broken out car and building windows, drug use, violence and aggressive behavior downtown during mid day is completely normal here. Hard to put into words some of the things I’ve learned while being here but compared to many other areas, 2 stars is plenty for Spokane.  Read More
