The only reason I am would have given this hotel 4 of 5 is because of the location. There were homeless people in the area just outside of the hotel and the park across the street when we pulled in. However, the next morning, the park was filled with people playing volleyball and just hanging out. So, I am going to give it a 5 since the hotel itself was a 5.
The hotel itself, I'll start with the room...it was very nice. There were two double beds with a separate area with a pull out couch. That area was separated with a door. There was a flat screen television in both areas. The bathroom was located between the two areas. The toilet and bathtub/sink were separated by a door, but the sink was out in the middle, so you could use the sink while someone was in the bathroom. There was both a fridge and a microwave and plenty of mirror space in the area between the bedroom and sitting area.
We we called for maintenance when our air conditioner did not seem to be working right, within 10 minutes, and had it fixed within 5 minutes. The man was courteous, said that we were in the area of the motel that had a brand new AC unit, so it required a little different filter than the previous kind, so the other workers may not have known that. He also was kind enough to give us a restaurant recommendation.
When we called the front desk, they answered by saying, "Thank you for calling the Best Western Royal Sun, how can I help the _______ family?" They were VERY nice and helpful.
The pool and hot tub were both nice. The pool had an 8 ft deep area, so my kids could dive off the edge. The hot tub was a good temperature, not too hot, not too cold. I could see the exercise room where some people were working out, but we did not go in.
Breakfast? Very unusual, but GREAT...go to the hotel restaurant and order one of 8 made to order breakfasts...pancakes, eggs, etc. You get one drink with your meal, but the food was fresh and good! It was nice to order like you would at a breakfast restaurant, have it brought to you fresh, but then NOT pay for it. It was very good breakfast.
There is a reason this hotel is rated so well...the service, the clean rooms, the good layouts of the rooms, and breakfast. Again, the only thing that would have brought it down to a 4 was the location and presence of homeless people on the property, so just be aware of this when you are pull up to the hotel and don't see a picture perfect area.
