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.

We stayed at the Royal Inn on April 26th for one night. Our room 301 was in the new addition of the motel. The room was normal size with two double beds, flat screen tv, fridge, microwave and FREE WIFI! Coming from Canada the location was good, we stop at motel on the way, signed in, then continued to Watertown... More

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

We went to Watertown, N.Y. for a shopping weekend. Stayed at the Royal Inn, exit 48 of Interstate 81. This was an old motel that has been renovated. 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

In an area of overpriced motels, the Royal Inn was a find. The rooms are basic, clean, and comfortable. Cups are plastic, towels are thin, and there is no free shampoo. But our room, probably one of the more spacious, had a microwave, a fridge, an air conditioner that worked fine, and two reasonably comfortable beds. The desk person, the... More

The service was terrible, guy at the front desk was very rude and unhelpful. The room smelled terrible and was dirty. The people above us were making a lot of noise and the front desk refused to do anything about it. I would rather stay under a bridge than stay here again.
