We like the old-style motor inns because you can drive right up to the front door. The motel is located between the airport and old downtown area. The basic room with a king bed was huge. It included a table, large counter, microwave, and refrigerator, as well as both a tub and separate shower. Both sides of the bed contained... More

Had trouble finding someplace to stay in Farmington, NM and stumbled on this place. Huge room, very comfortable beds, large vanity, refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom included a large tub AND a separate shower! Very well maintained and super quiet in residential part of town. Loved the old style entry and fully tiled bathroom in beautiful colors. Best motel stay I've... More

We were passing through town on our way to Utah and just needed a place to stop for the evening. This place was a good value. The owners keep the place up well and it was very clean. Some minor things kept it from a very good review. The ice machine was broken (I survived). In the middle of the... More

The Royal Inn is set apart from the street with walls, giving it a quiet atmosphere and sense of seclusion. The room was large and well furnished and very clean. When I couldn't operate the remote for the TV (which had a complicated set up) and the manager couldn't get the problem solved on the phone, he came right over... More

We were looking for a place to lay our heads for the night and what we discovered was a wonderful step back in time. Arrived very late with no reservations and were greeted with a warm welcome. Opened the door to the room and found a room that has been meticulously maintained from the 60's. Separate shower and bath, Large... More

We travel to farmington often to visit family for years and I wish I had known about this place sooner. I Couldn't agree more with positive reviews below, although it is not out of town as one reviewer stated, but it does have that feeling. This hotel is the best kept secret in town; we'll be back for sure!

Pros: - super clean - comfortable mattress - shower and bath in restroom, hot water - quiet - friendly staff - located opposite a dental office, seems a safe neighborhood Cons (minor nitpicks) : - shower head low (I am 5'6" and had to crouch slightly) - room took an hour to cool down once the air conditioning was turned...

If you are looking for a quiet,clean,reasonably priced stay then this is the place. The motel is older with few amenities but does have a microwave and a small fridge. We stayed four nights in June 2013 and this would be our first choice when we return to Farmington.

we arrived at 9pm and the main office was closed. We were greeted by staff outside the office who took our information and gave us our key. They informed us we could pay in the morning. After we had gone to sleep for the night, we heard a frightful banging on our door with a woman yelling something unintelligible outside... More

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Beds were a little hard but room was very clean. Separate tub and shower. Older place but loved the color schemes. No coffee in the room. Quiet place right next to a mountain. Not the best part of town but we felt safe.
