Both designed under the Best Western Plus ethos, the Peppertree Airport Inn and Peppertree Liberty Lake Inn sit just outside Spokane, making either an ideal headquarters for exploring eastern Washington's myriad attractions. Along with the universal amenities—both hotels feature a 24-hour indoor pool, complimentary WiFi, and a daily breakfast buffet including egg soufflés, waffles, juice, and coffee—each hotel offers a unique experience. Befitting its name, the Peppertree Airport Inn lies less than 3 miles from Spokane International Airport, easily accessible thanks to a free 24-hour shuttle that also runs to the nearby Northern Quest Resort & Casino. At the Liberty Lake Inn just east of Spokane, guests sip beverages and appetizers during manager's receptions, held every Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., or kick back in a sports lounge called the Pepper Zone, where two 55-inch plasma TVs look out over two reclining couches and a pool table's equally cozy felt. Far away from the bustle of Seattle, Spokane thrives amid its beautiful natural surroundings. The Centennial Trail, a 37-mile paved multipurpose path, follows the swift-moving Spokane River throughout the city and beyond, and the 90-acre Manito Park features five landscaped gardens, playgrounds, and a duck pond where goslings can be seen inflating their water wings for the first time every spring.

The black-belt instructors of Warhorse Karate Jiu Jitsu believe that developing character on the inside matters as much as learning to defend oneself on the outside. That?s why throughout their classes, they emphasize principles such as modesty, integrity, and perseverance to help pupils overcome the conflicts that can?t be resolved through traditional coup d??tat. For the times when those skills are needed, they prepare students by training them in in a mix of styles such as Kenpo karate and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Through progressive classes for kids as young as 6 through adults, instructors drill participants in both unarmed and armed self-defense. For those interested in developing defense skills for the ground, they teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This focused approach, along with its sponsorship of charitable organizations such as the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation, has won the academy many accolades. Warhorse Karate Jiu Jitsu has won Krem?s The Best of Spokane contest in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 in addition to taking the top spot in the Inlander Best of the Inland NW awards.
