We stayed at this hotel over the weekend when we were in Vegas as most hotels hike their prices on Friday and Saturday nights. Royal Vacation Suites cost next to nothing over the weekend priced at around 35 Dollars so it was our main incentive for staying there.
We weren't expecting much too be honest - budget hotel standard, nthing more. However we were really pleasantly surprised by the overall quality and service we experienced there.
The room was spick and span and spacious, there were French windows leading onto a small balcony, coffee making facilities and a fridge (note that coffee makers and fridges are hard to find in most Vegas hotels). We had a view of Riviera and Circus Circus from our room which was nice. The bathroom was functional but very clean, pleasantly decorated and had a hairdryer which was important for me.
The pool was quite simple but clean and warm and the hot tub was hot. There are cabanas available for free, and sun loungers with comfy mattresses too. Compared to the pool at Planet Hollywood (see my review of that hotel), the pool at the Royal Resort is miles better.
The front desk staff were friendly bar one lady who was rather curt.
The only slightly negative point I found was that the 'Barrymore' bar which is proudly advertised on the sign outside was never open while we were there and this makes for rather a sad ambience in the lobby which is a shame because the lobby is quite fancily decorated - they could make better use of the space.
Concerning the location of the hotel, it is close to Ross, Circus, Circus and Riviera and a 5 minute walk from Encore. It's not the best part of the strip but it's within easy walking distance of the more coveted part of the strip.
The bottom line: excellent value for money especially over the weekend.
