If I need to tell my overall expression of Riverfalls Tower in one word, it is 'overpriced'. And I had experience with rental apartments in more than one state and twice in Spokane. I would not recommend it to a friend. First, the good things about the place. The stuff is extremely polite, including the leasing lady. The building is well cared and overall in good shape. I like the community room, the fitness place (which is small but adequate as it is barely used), elevators always clean. The tenants are very decent people and no noise or other problem. There is a closed parking space in the building, which is gated and the building itself has a secured entrance. So, safety is not an issue here. Despite being well maintained, the building is old, more than 30, close to 40 yrs, although not my expertise, I got the impression that it lacks the adequate infrastructure to support the amenities offered by the management in return of an above-Spokane average rent. I moved to a unit which was remodeled after the last tenant moved out. The rent was increased, by more than 25%, because a fireplace, electric water heater and washer/dryer were newly setup, as part of remodeling. The rent increase is fair, or this is what I believed at the very beginning, as these additions can be considered to take the apartment to the 'luxurious' status, if only what was offered was actually what I really got. Soon after moving in, I figured out that tap water in bathroom was cutoff off whenever the washer was running. The ac unit on the wall was my initial preference for heating during the first cold days of december, till i got an electricity bill close to 25% of the full month's rent, which was shocking as I spent more than half of the day outside. The other option, as recommended by the leasing lady, the fireplace, first seemed to be better in heating and cheaper, till just in a couple of weeks it became obvious it creates enormous amounts of soot, when black stains started to crawl up white plastic, walls, shelves, everything, even inside the refrigerator. The heat insulation at the exterior walls/windows must be terrible as I have never witnessed in any other apartment heat flowing from inside out at such a high rate, and I lived in midwest for some years which can be pretty chilly in winters. Another issue, the fact that electricity heater was supposed to be kept running for a good 5-6 minutes before actually hot water starts to come down, does not seem such a big deal at first but becomes bugging when the electricity bills start to drain your pocket especially in winter. Although the building is conveniently located, meaning within walking distance to downtown, and in a nice neighborhood, I would still not consider it the best, as there are not many stores in the close vicinity around nor casual walking is pleasant with the Monroe and Walnut roads creating borders cutting your walking path at east and west. My unit was on one of the upper floors, so I had a fantastic view. However, all through the summer time, the balcony was invaded by a horde of flying bugs, which probably live in the untamed green area down at the foot of the building and were crazed by the reflection of light from the windows. Even if you leave the apartment in better condition then you moved in, it does not help much with respect to deposit refund because the management wants to have their own people clean the carpets and it costs minimum $150 depending on size of the apartment.
