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

small but very comfortable this hotel is all you need for a great few days soaking up the sun in Palm Springs. this is my favourite place in the world. 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.

We stayed at the royal sun inn midway april in hot and sunny Pzalm Springs. It's not in the middle of town, but that didn't matter to us. Check-in was fast, room was big and wel maintained with amountain view balcony. I absolutely loved the sight. Most visitors are older people, guess that's typical for Palm Springs. We had the...

We stayed at the Royal Sun Inn for 6 nights and found the location was excellent. The staff was helpful and friendly and our room was clean. It's a bit dated with the sound coming from adjoining rooms but overall this place was just fine and we enjoyed our stay. The free breakfasts were also good. This was our first... More

So, I booked this place as the Hilton was too pricey. I'm a Holiday Inn kind of guy at heart. This place is a mile off the centre of palm springs, maybe a little more...to the south. Plenty of free parking. Check-in was fine. The room was clean and basic with a good king bed. Wifi dropped occasionally but was... More
