The Royal had a fire a few months ago and it is now gated and closed with no time to reopen. This place went down hill fast. Don't know what happened but hopefully There will be new owners or the currant owners will do some much needed upgrades.

My trip started out with a problem getting reservations on CHEAPTICKETS.COM.Upon my arrival the Manager was able to help me out with a great deal on a mini suite and the Motel provided me with free transportation to and from the nearby downtown nightlife.Despite the older Motel the grounds are very well manicured the rose bushes trimmed and smelling great...

The room was disgusting and had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. The room had dirty floors, floors had not vacuumed, the linen on the beds were dirty and they... More

This is a dump. Go somewheew else! Dirty carpet, drawings on the walls, no blanket you have to use the not so nice bedspread. Fridge not clean and interior partially broken. One channel working on the tv. The only good thing was the free internet and the proximity to the weird restaurant Fosters bighorn where the food was excellent.

This is probably the dirtiest place I have ever stayed. Rio Vista is such a nice little town it deserves a good motel. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to exist. This place had a mirror in the bathroom that looked like it had never been cleaned, a very dirty floor with bugs dead, and the walls were stained. The TV did... More
