I was traveling cross country with my dogs, this hotel come up as a dog friendly place to stay. When we got there we paid for a room but it wasn't until we had already paid that they told us since we had dogs we had to stay in a smoking room. Being a non smoker the smell was awful,... More

Room was just okay. Sheets had stains on them. Bathroom was just passable and the water had a smell. Take bottled water!! It says newly renovated but I don't know what. Reception area smelled like curry. Would never stay here again.....and it's about 8 miles to the shopping.

This is a no frills motel. The rooms make a Microtel look like suites! With that said, the price is right; the rooms are clean; there is flat screen TV; fridge and micro in the room. The internet was fair but serviceable. The difficulty in Watertown is there are high price hotels and low price hotels..... Nothing in the middle.

The royal Inn was clean and comfortable for the price paid. We went over for a shopping trip and this motel worked. The only thing it didn't have was a coffee maker and only one coat hanger. But it did have a fridge!

Booked this online but everything went smoothly, I got everything i asked for. The room was small but clean and comfy. Only complaint was the sheets--clean but cheaply made. Staff was very friendly and patient! Good experience~~would reccomend to another solo traveler! Diner was comfortable and close by

New carpets, in the halls and rooms, new queen beds and linens, nice flat screen tv , clean bathroom. The motel was very clean, and quiet, we certainly would go to this... More

Watertown has tons of over priced hotels but royal inn is by far the best value. It was very affordable had a really nice room with all the amenities of most franchises. The room had nice furniture and all new mattresses. The diner next door is great for both dinner and breakfast. Best part is the hotel is family owned... More

My wife and I had booked several days ahead via Booking.com and when we arrived around 2pm, no one was to be found at the reception. I buzzed and buzzed the bell to no avail. I heard a noise at the end of the hall and located someone there to book us in. I showed her our online reservation for... More
