As Las Vegas regulars, we were very nervous about staying here as we usually stay at Riviera and are generally happy there. Royal Resort was a good deal and didn't have the sting of the 'Resort fee' that many Vegas hotels charge (including Riviera) which are getting very high.
I am pleased to report that our stay was a pleasant one! The rooms are lovely, clean, have huge beds, lots of wardrobe and drawer space, an extra fold out bed, table, comfortable lounge chair, microwave, refrigerator and freezer, iron and flat screen TV. The view was also great, from our room we had a view of the pool, the Encore and a distant view of the Rio. The hotel even provided good quality toilet paper, tissues and Treseme shampoo and conditioner!!!
The area is fine, ignore other reviewers who say it isn't, it's a stones throw from the Vegas strip! Yes there are drug dealers who hang around outside Dennys/Walgreens (across the road), but other than that it's fine. By the logic that this is in a bad area, you could call the entire strip a bad area!
Yes you have to leave a $100 deposit, but if we'd stayed at a hotel with a resort fee we would've paid that and not got it back!
The only criticisms of our room were:
1 The heating didn't work. This sounds like a joke in Vegas but in November it gets chilly at night.
2 The safe was locked on arrival so couldn't get in it to use it.
There is a member of staff who can fix these things; when we told the staff at reception about the safe, they said to ask at 9am the following day for the maintenance guy, we then asked at 10:45 the next morning and he hadn't arrived yet! We never bothered telling them about the heating as we would never be in when the maintenance guy was so there didn't seem to be any point, plus, as we didn't have a safe we could use I didn't feel comfortable having people in the room while we were out!
Overall we had a lovely stay and would (and probably will) stay again.
