This hotel is old, but still decent and after experiencing several hotels with only full beds, it was great to have queen size beds. The room was big, clean, had a fridge, microwave, safe, dark curtains, and towels for the pool available at the front desk. There was a nice heated pool area and hot tub. The pool was too... More

Stayed here for an event at the Hacienda Cantina. Great location for it because it was walking distance from the venue. It's about a 10 minute drive to downtown where all the restaurants are. The hotel is in pretty good shape, it has a vintage feel to it. Pool area was clean, plenty of chairs. The room had a microwave... More

The Royal Sun Hotel is one of the many we have stayed that really helped us financially and yet provided most of what we could want. On the fringe of Palm Springs it is perfectly situated for access to any parts of the Dessert canyon. It is a hotel that we have gone back to 3 more times since the... More

We spent a very lazy, relaxed 4 weeks here. Very good, friendly atmosphere from both staff and other guests. Unfortunately we had booked through booking.com so it cost us $2500 more than if we had booked directly with the hotel. Very expensive lesson learned.will definitely never use booking.com again

Actually, comparing it to Motel 6 probably isn't fair to Motel 6 since I haven't seen the Palm Springs Motel 6. There was a group of us staying in the area to attend a big party. Since we just need a place to sleep, we didn't want to spent a lot. The place definitely needs some updating. Carpet was torn,... More

Our son was staying in this hotel so we decided it would be easier if we stayed in the same place. I must admit our room was clean but it was very dated, bathtub needed caulking, lamps needed new light bulbs. We heard people stomping or walking above us. The walls were paper thin. For a one night stay it... More

Good budget hotel with a nice size pool and hot tub. Also had a small gym and washing facilities. Rooms were clean and well presented. Basic breakfast included but was adequate. It's a little off the main strip but you get value for money here.

Booked with group. Asked for adjoining pool side rooms...willing to pay more. Did not accommodate. Being at the pool every night we noticed ALL of those rooms were EMPTY. Complained daily of the idiot above us who stomped & slammed between 6-9 am. Then between 10-11pm. Our 2 rooms had a 1 yr & 3yr old. It just kept going.... More

We have been going here at Thanksgiving for 19 years. We get gound floor pool side rooms. This year there were 23 of us. The kids love it and now bring their kids. Serve yourself breakfast every morning where the kids can get thier own food and bring it out by the pool. Not the fanciest but has all you... More

On my way to spend Thanksgiving with family, I spent one night at the Royal Sun Inn. The hotel is convenient to downtown Palm Springs. I stayed in a first floor room near parking, as I had requested. The single room was comfortable with a queen-sized bed. There is free WiFi. One inconvenience was the fact that there was no... More
