We recently spent 3 nights at the Royal Pacific Motor Inn, and although I was nervous based on some reviews, I was happy with our stay. Some reviews mention the seedy area. The overall area isn't bad at all, BUT as we drove down Broadway, I got very nervous - a block or two before the hotel is a small "red-light" area, with a good amount of strip clubs. My 14 yo son thought it was pretty funny, my 11 yo daughter didn't notice. The block it's in is fine, though, with restaurants, another hotel and some markets and stores. You might want to check it out on Google streetview, though, and see if it is in your comfort zone.
The room itself was fine. Since there are 4 of us in a room, it took me a while to find a hotel with queen beds, rather than doubles. The beds are true queens, and big enough for 2 to share. It is rather dated, but scrupulously clean. We got a 5th floor room on the back side, and found it very quiet. The free parking was a huge savings - other hotels were charging around $45 - $55 a night. The free wifi was predictably slow, but that is typical of hotel wifi.
For what it is - a budget hotel in a tourist city - we were very pleased. If you are looking for luxury with lots of amenities, you might need to look elsewhere and pay more.
