I love the Royal Motor Inn, but for only two reasons - Location & Price. I hate the Royal Motor Inn for everything else!
The RMI is the hotel with the best location in Moscow. From the hotel you can walk to downtown and campus the only things you usually need to do in Moscow. This is also the lowest price hotel in Moscow so maybe all we should expect is good location.
The rooms never feel clean. Tie-died sheets do not reassure me that sheets are clean. The place has that old musty smell. The staff is unfriendly and not at all flexible. Our room was not cleaned during our last stay. The bathrooms need to be remodeled. This would not be a huge expense for the RMI. A key change would be new showerheads - only $7 each at their local WalMart. Why would they expect guests to have a satisfactory shower when the water either dribbles out or shoots out the side? The next low cost change would be the shower curtains. Also less than $10. How can a hotel have shower curtains that have that sour smell to them?
