We stayed three nights.
Pros: Good location in a nice area with plenty of restaurants and shopping close by. The Royal Inn is a large, sprawling complex with many buildings and a large, attractive and well maintained pool bordering a pretty lake. There’s a Mexican Restaurant, closed but undergoing renovations, and an outdoor bar (also closed), both adjoining the pool and overlooking the lake. With so many rooms, guests were spread out throughout the whole complex so we didn’t have any neighbors next to us. Our room was the smallest and cheapest with 2 double beds. The bathroom, microwave and fridge were in an alcove off the bedroom, and it felt more spacious not having everything jammed into the one room. The building we were in was single room width, so our room had cross ventilation front and back with plenty of light and windows that open. The room itself was clean and adequate, nothing luxurious, but fine for us, and the bed comfortable. Housekeeping did a good job, cleaning, replacing soap, glasses and towels every day.
Cons: Older motel a little down at the heels. Needs some sprucing up and minor repairs outside. Upon walking around, I saw some tiles near the pool area that needed replacement, some stair tread strips that were peeling off, and one outside a/c vent cover that was missing on one of the rooms . Pool area furniture should be replaced for cosmetic reasons. The cheap white plastic chairs and tables detract from the pool’s overall nice appearance. The Tiki Bar next to the pool and overlooking the lake is closed and forlorn looking. Hopefully, they'll renovate it along with the Mexican restaurant next to it, which they're currently working on. Some of the guests were a little 'sketchy', but for the most part, I saw nice people - truckers and families with children. Definite Negatives: No coffeemaker or hairdryer in the room, and no complimentary breakfast. The lobby has complimentary coffee, but I don’t like the inconvenience of leaving my room to get it. Not having a hairdryer is also a big inconvenience. The air conditioner in our room was noisy and sounded like it was on life support, making puffing noises like a ventilator. It didn’t keep us awake, but we did get the feeling we were in ER when we first got into bed.
Note to Management: Invest a few bucks and put a coffeemaker and hairdryer in all the rooms.
