The main problems were PA announcements throughout the night (No smoking etc etc), the bright lights and the floor waxing machine--When you are on the floor and this machine comes back and forth 12 inches from your head is not a nice thing to try to sleep through. - a traveller
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Spokane International Airport.
What to Expect
- A small airport with three concourses (Concourses A, B and C) and limited facilities
- After airport restaurants and shops close for the night, vending machines are the only in-airport snack option. Be sure to purchase food and drinks before concessions close.
- The airport provides free WiFi. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- After security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to landside only. Passengers sleeping airside will be required to go back to landside until security reopens, and will need to clear security again to re-enter.
- Try the business center just off the hallway between the Ticketing counters and Baggage Claim.
- Space and comfortable seating is very limited for sleeping landside. If you stay overnight, there’s a good chance you will be sleeping on the floor. Have a travel mattress, sleep mask and earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones to ensure a good night’s rest!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
