It's not a chain. We are six in the family and had to get two rooms. There was a door between the two rooms so we were able to be in touch and use the two bathrooms at our convenience.I was greeted as though I was a family member. I was offered water at check-in. She asked me if I... More

After checking some of the other hotel offerings in Gallup, we decided to try the Royal Holiday. The hotel is modest and inexpensive, but we found our recently renovated room very roomy, clean and comfortable. Our bed was very comfortable too and we were very happy with our choice. The owners-operators are very friendly and helpful, and the wifi worked... More

We pulled into Gallup after a long day of driving and started looking for a motel. We saw the Royal Holiday Motel and decided to stay there. The couple working at the front desk were friendly and helpful and the room was inexpensive ($45). The room itself was dated and required some basic maintenance. It was fairly clean and considering... More

We got stuck here after the quality inn screwed us out of our room at midnight. What a nightmare. The lobby stunk! We couldn't get out of there fast enough. The lamps didn't work and it wasn't clean. We didn't showering the morning. Just got in the car and drove as far away from New Gallup as we could.

Arriving in Gallup after dark, found there were many motels to choose from. Unfortunately, most of them are near the Santa Fe tracks and you get loud trains coming through 24/7 -- not just the rumble but they blow their horns frequently. Bring earplugs if you want to sleep in Gallup. So I can't single out the Royal Holiday for... More

We pulled into Gallup rather late and very tired. The Royal Holiday was cheap, but it was listed in the AAA book - how bad could it be? At a glance, the room looked fine - clean and pleasantly decorated. It soon revealed itself to be a collection of booby traps. The refrigerator just plain didn't work, and the door... More

This motel was listed as a Best Western in my Auto Club New Mexico Tourbook. They did tell me when I called that they were no longer a Best Western, but they did have two queen beds that we needed, were near where we wanted to eat, told us they had "standard continental breakfast" and the price seemed reasonable based...

My colleague choose this hotel so I didn't have much of a say in where we stayed. This was the worst expierence I've had in a hotel and I've done a great deal of traveling for work. The room was ok except the hairdryer didn't work. I am already weary of the cleaniness most hotel rooms (even nice ones!) so... More

Hotel property is older, rooms were dated but clean and comfortable. They charged a nonrefundable deposit for our dogs. However, we were happy to pay it considering other hotels we checked didn't allow pets. The hotel is across the street from a railroad track and trains were frequent throughout the evening, although we didn't notice many throughout the night. A... More
