We stayed here for one night on our road trip. The staff was very kind to us, seeing we had to call them for a broken fridge and after that for a bath tub plug that failed to work. We got moved to another room without any trouble. The other room seemed a bit more modern (as in the equipment... More

Even though slightly outside of a comfortable reach to the town, this was a comfortable choice for a good nights sleep. Only 5 mins to town by car. Perfect for a nights stay over on a road trip. Booked on Hotwire.

The room was clean, the fridge worked when turned on, the carpet was new, the bed comfortable, the a/c worked although a little noisy and the lift worked and the ice machine worked. The pool was popular with the kids. There was a small convenience store across the road which was handy. The breakfast room was congested and small but... More

We stayed one night. Palm spring (not just the motel, but the city) is hard to find, so print directions in advance. We had a good deal for that room. Big pool area (plenty of chairs with Bbq). Breakfast was ok. When we arrived, the room was hot (it was 48C outside and the fridge wasn't plugged). The room was... More

It is not to big therefore never full of rowdy weekend youngsters. any time I have stayed it seems to be mostly older couples for a quiet weekend. Not too... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Royal Sun Inn during a recent trip to Palm Springs in June. I am always looking for a hotel around or under $75 where the reviews don't mention dirty or bugs. I payed under $70 in off-peak June and got a clean room which included a king bed, cable television, a small stove... More

After some hours driving from LA, we arrived in Palm Springs. It's hot in the desert, so the pool of this hotel was very welcome. We've got a nice room with everything we needed. Breakfast was good with waffles, cereals etc.
