Do not stay at Royal Inn
No towels, no hair dryer, no soap or shampoos. Air conditioner barely worked and room smells. This hotel should have been shut down years ago
Stayed 4 nights in Oct 2017

It was a room. For the price I couldn’t complain, theoretically there is plenty of potential for this to be a great Inn giving some much needed renovations. The staff was quite pleasant though I never received new linen or towels the three nights I stayed there.

3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Sad face IconDisliked: Room comfort
It was a non-smoking room. It smelt like someone had recently smoked in the room. To make matters worse, I had just gotten over a sore throat. The bacteria from sore throats usually spreads into my asthma. So my asthma was irritated by the stench of cigarette smoke. In a non-smoking room, for that matter. Additionally, there was no soap in the room. This is the first time I had ever been in a hotel room with no bar of soap.

Not open
The hotel was NOT open and was told it hasn't been in over a year. So far my card has not been charged but will keep an eye on it.
