“ok room for price, but......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

the owners are very cheap, and rude. carpet was filthy. there was 6 of us traveling together in 2 rooms, each room only had 2 towels, and 2 rags. when asked for more, they gave us 2 more. then the other traveling with us went down to get more, and they made us give them one of the towels we got. on the 3rd day, (we did not want housekeeping) we asked to trade out towels, they gave us 2 each and said we would have to wait until the others washed and dried, and there were maybe 40 people tops staying there? when we finally did go ask for more towels, they were very rude and would not give us any until my sister and my wife got very nasty with them. then to top it off it was the day for us to leave, and one of the male workers was standing down in the parking lot stalking us, and at 11:02 the lady was knocking on all the doors of the ones who were supposed to check out at 11 asking if they were leaving yet, we were out of our room, but the ones next to us were still getting luggage out. the breakfast consisted of 2 kinds of cereal and coffee, the carpet in our room had burn holes all in it, we spilled something and trying to do the right thing and dry it up, was sprite, and the towel we wiped it up with was black by the time we dried the sprite up. the beds are not very comfy, very hard almost like sleeping on the floor. the ac worked good, but was either on or off. no in between. the room did have a fridge, and microwave, tv had lots of channels, location is convenient, and quiet. for the price it was ok, the staff was awful, and the service even worse. could use a little updating, and it is very obvious the owners are cheap. there was also no hair dryer which the women did not like. the shower curtains looked really old. would stay again if only for 1 or 2 night, but not for 5 like we did this go round.

We were driving from Charlotte to Houston and were looking for a cheap hotel on the west side of Atlanta. This Royal Inn was perfect. Good price, clean room, easy access, firm bed. Simple but solid, not the Ritz but just what we wanted and expected. After two weeks on the road with some poor hotel stays this restful night was appreciated

The Manager and his wife has nasty attitudes with Locals,Blacks,and what "They" consider trashy white people. They have one side for who they feel doesnt meet up to "Their" standards,and the other side,for those that are out of town,or people that they feel have a little money; it's obvious that "They" discriminate!! that is why several of us have joined to gather to file a discrimination suit against them! The wife is very nasty! They try to please whites,while treating others any kind of way! That is not how we do it here in the USA. I had 2 rooms,and kids,that They didnt even want to be seen outiside playing(Black of course),but their own wld play outside freely! Bad business!!!! very unfriendly!!! we have consumer/customer Rights!!

On a weekender to Atlanta for shopping at the Dekalb International Market, Wife and I decided to stay the night in Douglasville. We use interstate traveler coupon books for research and better rates on lodging. The coupon for Royal Inn stated “New” and “Hot Breakfast” for $45.00 per night.
As my wife remarked, “If this place is new, then I’m a beauty queen.” While the rooms/facilities were not run-down shabby, it was far, far from new construction. And, I’m sorry but, a hot breakfast consists of more than do-it-yourself waffle and coffee. Yes, they had a few cereal choices, milk and juice. However, the only “hot” items were the waffle and coffee. We’ve partaken of better cold continental breakfasts with more choices and offerings at establishments we paid less for per night.
A major repeat stay deal breaker was the beds. Lord, I think a slab of stone would have been more comfy. Granted, it is hard to find an inexpensive hotel with decent beds nowadays, but these were awful to the extreme.
On the plus side, the rooms were clean and the family who owns and operates Royal Inn were very nice and helpful. They were not banging on the door and swooshing us out at 11 o’clock on the dot like some places.

Room Tip: Use coupon books from gas stations and rest stops.
