Very large, spacious room, great vintage bathroom, all in green, and a nice tiled shower stall (but also has a tub next to it). Comfy bed and clean, quiet room (does not face a busy street, but rather faces a large grassy area, presumsbly where the pool used to be) and best of all a fantastic price. All in all...

This place gets good reviews, and it should. Nothing fancy. No hair drier in the room, BTW. But clean, mattress was OK for the night. Large bathroom with stand-up shower and a tub. I paid $40 + fees, which I thought was great. Ended up having to take care of a little business matter (fast wifi too) and they were...

There are so many good and bad things about this motel. The bed was comfortable and the shower very good, but the rooms need a deep cleaning and had stains on carpet and side chairs. Access to ice was another issue. It is close to the local walmart which is helpful since there was no coffee or snacks served in...

We were passing through Farmington and needed a place to stay for the night and found this up a side street from the main road through. The motel grounds were very well maintained and for a cheap place to stay it did the job - the room was large and clean and the bed comfortable. The only slight concern was...

We like the old-style motor inns because you can drive right up to the front door. The motel is located between the airport and old downtown area. The basic room with a king bed was huge. It included a table, large counter, microwave, and refrigerator, as well as both a tub and separate shower. Both sides of the bed contained...

Had trouble finding someplace to stay in Farmington, NM and stumbled on this place. Huge room, very comfortable beds, large vanity, refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom included a large tub AND a separate shower! Very well maintained and super quiet in residential part of town. Loved the old style entry and fully tiled bathroom in beautiful colors. Best motel stay I've...

We were passing through town on our way to Utah and just needed a place to stop for the evening. This place was a good value. The owners keep the place up well and it was very clean. Some minor things kept it from a very good review. The ice machine was broken (I survived). In the middle of the...

The Royal Inn is set apart from the street with walls, giving it a quiet atmosphere and sense of seclusion. The room was large and well furnished and very clean. When I couldn't operate the remote for the TV (which had a complicated set up) and the manager couldn't get the problem solved on the phone, he came right over...

We were looking for a place to lay our heads for the night and what we discovered was a wonderful step back in time. Arrived very late with no reservations and were greeted with a warm welcome. Opened the door to the room and found a room that has been meticulously maintained from the 60's. Separate shower and bath, Large...

We travel to farmington often to visit family for years and I wish I had known about this place sooner. I Couldn't agree more with positive reviews below, although it is not out of town as one reviewer stated, but it does have that feeling. This hotel is the best kept secret in town; we'll be back for sure!

“Hotel is shaped in "L". #1 is on far right by entrance road and #40 (or so) on far left and across small parking area from office (also closest to office). #20 is in the corner of the "L". We were in rooms #19 and #26, middle area, and didn't hear a sound all night. Both king sized bed rooms but #26 had a joining door and was much bigger than #19.”

“The motel is shaped in an L. The rooms on the L nearest the office are the most quiet, as they back up to a hillside instead of Airport Ave.”
