This was a last minute book for a mini vacation to h2oi 2014. The room was of decent size the view was awesome. At night you can hang out on the balcony facing the ocean and chat with other visitors. All in all great visit great location on Boardwalk. I'll try to visit again in 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Royalton for the 4th of July weekend. Honestly, I was nervous after reading these reviews. I prepped to sleep in the car. THIS HOTEL WAS NOT NEARLY AS BAD AS THE OTHERS IN OC!!! We brought our own pillows and blankets and everything was fine. Yes, it is overpriced and outdated, but it... More

Payed way too much for this hotel which had no elevator, a horrible condensed smell, ants all over the sink, garbage under the bed, stains on the sheets, and very limited parking. The pool was a block away and when we finally found it, the water was green.

The rooms were very outdated and beds had hair in between the sheets. They also only have pool access but was absolutely freezing and both the pool and the hotel had no elevator (have to give your room key to get a pool key). Level one is actually up 2 flights of stairs and level two is up 4 flights... More

The absolute worst experience we ever had. The motel itself was extremely old, hasn't been renovated in over 30 +years. No elevators, room was located on the 4th floor, walking up flights of stairs and just gets hotter as you go up. It was basically in an attic, seemed like they just threw a room together. The room door was... More
