"Average" really does say it. Traveled here for a three night weekday stay with Husband. Found a reasonable rate with our AAA membership, liked that the location is off the main strip and snugs up to a residential area, and best of all-- no pets allowed. Not so excellent are all the smokers cluttering up the parking area and stairwells.... More

We stayed one night at this inn and thankful it was only one night. As previous guests have stated the Wifi connection was a joke. I had no setup issue with my device as management commented on other reviews. There is no robust internet service as they want you to believe. I did a broadband speed test and there was... More

Older motel, but updated room. My ground floor accomodations were comfortable, clean, and enjoyable. I really enjoyed the private patio. I was in Palm Springs on business, hence a strong internet connection was important to me, but unfortanetly the wifi signal was terrible at best. Please update your internet system.

We stayed one night which was too long. Came in after a concert at 11;30 pm and had to park on the street in a very sketchy neighborhood. The room stunk so bad of Pinesol! You could hardly breathe! It is true you get what you pay for. Stay somewhere else. The floors all creak so bad. NEVER AGAIN! Free... More

We stayed at Royal Sun Inn for 5 nights, it was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Complementary breakfast every morning. Easy access to everything and always open parking and rooms are always neat.

Stayed here for two nights at the end of December. Hotel wasn't very busy, so I can't speak to how 'thin' the walls are or anything, as there were no other guests in the adjoining rooms. Breakfast was fine. Our room was fine. Hotel was clean and just about what to expect from a little 2 star hotel. My only... More

Paid $46/nt. Managers Special or some such. The place is dated, but all the old items in the room are actually clean. Shower did not work, we felt uncomfortable sleeping at night. The area is kind of creepy, a lot of marijuana smoking going on as well as weirdos in the parking lot. In my old backpacking days when I... More

Stayed here last week on my way home and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quality of the room for the price. Breakfast was great and place was very quiet. Agreed, the place was very empty on a Thursday night. The young lady that checked me in was very nice, but the older two men I encountered later acted... More

This is a cheap 2* motel, and our experience would lead us to definitely stay again. We cannot believe the negative comments made by some reviewers. If you check out late, or use a hotel's telephone system in any way you are asking for problems. Yes, the place is a bit dated, but very clean. We found the staff very... More

1. Paper thin walls, floor, ceiling. I could hear the neighbors conversations perfectly. Walking above was a constant "creek creek creek" 2. Water pipes so noisy I wish I had a Decibel meter. Impossible to sleep after a neighbor flushes or takes a shower. 3. Paper thin towels, washcloths. 4. Soap that dries your skin out 5. Water pressure so... More
