The Royal gets a huge "A" for effort. The owners have turned a dump into a very nice hostel-like property. What you get is a private room and bathroom that is clean and comfortable. The rooms are small so I would not consider cramming four adults into one during spring break. The noisy a/c unit helped drown out the noise from Washington Avenue during the night and I slept great. The unit also kept the room cool despite the noise. The bed was comfortable.
If you want to come to South Beach but do not have unlimited funds, the Royal is your spot especially if you're only using the room to sleep, shower and change. In my case, this was a one-night business trip and I found the accommodation a pleasant surprise.
One little tip - the photos posted by the hotel clearly portray this property in its most favorable light.
