The improvements in this older motel are paying off by providing a very clean and comfortable stay. While the frequent freight train whistle blowing may bother some, you can get ear plugs from the helpful and pleasant hosts. The homemade breakfast waffle was most welcome one cold morning! The hosts are available with helpful info. and insights into the area.... More

If you make your choise to stay in a motel at Route 66 you cannot expect brand new spots. Yes, thismotel is outdated but it is clean, rooms are spacy and beds are OK. The owners are nice, they serve home made waffles and fruits at breakfast. The trains did not keep us awake. Wifi is good

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...
