I found the Royal Villa completely by chance while looking for hotels. I will definitely be going back. The room was pleasant, the bed was very comfortable, and it was QUIET! :-) I really enjoyed spending some time by the pool and soaking in the hot tub. Doug is also a most gracious host, very friendly, and gave me some... More

Having stayed at the Royal Villa last year while attending Phoenix Pride there was no question where I would land this year. This time I drove the 1350 miles to be there. Finding it was easy; head east off Interstate 17 on Indian School Road to 12th Street, turn left (north), go about 500 yards and there it is on... More

I recently spent a wonderful, relaxing time at Arizona Royal Villa Resort. Host Doug was very pleasant, friendly, and easy-going. I was visiting Phoenix for the first time to celebrate a friend's wedding and Doug was extremely helpful in answering all my questions about the area. Great restaurants and bars were close by. My room was clean and comfortable. Loved... More

I stayed there for a week starting 2-16-14. Doug was great, he worked his tail off everyday as his partner was out of town for a few days. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and have plans to stay there again. I stayed in room #5, which was a very nice comfortable room. I cannot say enough about Doug's hospitality, as... More

I really enjoyed this resort. The hotel is very clean inside the rooms and around the pool. The rooms are renovated with taste. I really enjoyed the jacuzzi day and night, it was fun to relax there. Also the hotel is not far from many gay venues in Phoenix. I don t have a clue what some reviewers said about... More

This is our 2nd stay here, the first being kinda newly opened. I see many improvements more of them surface, instead of real renovations, bath had old tub and just new fixtures stuck on them, shower head small, old and placed very low.

In response to this review, we would like to share on some of the items addressed, namely; 1) "Ghetto rooms" We have no "one side of ghetto rooms". All the rooms are the same as each other. The property next door is a lower income, ethnic, long term rental complex with wonderful people who accept us just as we are.... More

Royal Villas is AWESOME! I stayed a week (in room #13) and had a great time. Doug – the owner – is really sweet and works very hard to insure that everyone has a good experience in a clean, safe environment. Three nights of my 7-night stay the hotel was completely full but it didn’t feel that way; there were... More

Really enjoyed this place. My main goal is to enjoy some warm weather in nude by the pool, and I accomplished just that. The place is clean, location is very good, close to many restaurants and bars, and not too far from the PHX airport. I've read some negative comments about this place, and I've been here couple times now... More

Not gonna lie, as I pulled up in front of the place it looked like a fortress of concrete block and I was a little apprehensive. One step inside the "fortress" alleviated all my fears. The courtyard was extremely inviting and I was immediately at ease. Doug welcomed me and, as I was checking in, he gave me a rundown... More
