We had been driving for 12 hours and at 12:30AM stopped at 2 previous hotels, that were booked, and then came to the Royal Inn. From the outside it looked ok, so we went in and the man at the desk, spoke broken English. He was wearing a winter knit hat, with a knit scarf over the hat and tied... More

From the exterior, the hotel looks ok. Front desk/lobby, ok. The surprise is when you pull up to your room. The lining of the black out curtains in the window facing the parking lot is tattered. There is big gap between bottom of door and the floor. You could stick your hand under mine (not the arm though). Inside, the... More

We were stuck in traffic just at the exit for Dunn and decided to call it a night. Right at the exit was the Royal Inn. Do they have shampoo, wi fi, breakfast, working outdoor pool, fancy hbo? No. They do have a large refrigerator in the spacious room with 2 double beds. Since we were ready to sleep, all... More

Like everyone else, I was tired and was looking for a cheap place to sleep. After a too-slow check in process, I went and unloaded (luckily, only part) of my car. Something made me check under the bed sheets, but everything appeared OK after a quick perusal--with the exception of a stain on the sheet which looked like it could... More

About 30 years ago, this hotel would have probably been beautiful! A lot of rooms, and even a pool in the center court of the hotel. Yeah, Maybe in 1970. Now I'm not picky when it comes to a place to stay when my car breaks down. I found a shop in Dunn, on friday, and they got almost all... More

My husband and I were traveling back to South Carolina, and after being up very early in the morning and the only driver, I was sleepy so we stopped here. We were charged a high price for a nasty room. There was hair in the ice bucket, the bath tub was dirty and the carpet was stained in spots. There... More

Room was insanely Nasty, scary people hanging around, Staff was impossible to work with. Tried to call after my stay to get a copy of receipt and was hung up on 10+ times. This place needs to be SHUT DOWN! NEVER EVER EVER STAY THERE. No matter how tired you are! NEVER STAY THERE!

In July 2008 we had given the the current manager of Quality Inn and Highyway Inn in Dunn the opportunity to run and lease our motel. He was a local resident of Dunn who had been in the hospitality industry for two decades. We have now taken over the hands-on management of the property since 2014 and the previous lease... More
