What a Rat Hole, Terrible, paint peeling, roof shingles falling off, American Flag was shredded and tangled on itself. To top it off, the electricity had been turned off, and didnt expect to be turned back on for several days.

booked online for one price and when I checked in was charged $2 more. Granted only $2 but I was told Gaylord charges 11% tax and booking.com only 8% I was charged a $1 more in rate and $1 more in percentage to make up for it-- they don't honor what you are quoted online. The drive way hasn't been...

First and last time at Royal Crest hotel in Gaylord where instead of tissue you can get a used needle. I understand you're a low budget hotel but the safety of your customers should be a concern. This is the worst place in Gaylord to stay. Whatever they pay the maids is too much. I only wish I could upload...

This Motel is need of a lot of work, the building itself, pool, and workout room. There is no appliances, which is not a big deal until they serve breakfast 30 mins late or later every morning so no coffee before work unless you are ok with running late. The clock didn't work and I had to buy batteries for...

This place at one time was OK! Clean and well taken care of! What happened today, October 17,2016, this place is now something that is found in the 3rd world. This place needs some major work. Rusty brake drums, a pool in sad repair, no water and notices on it. What is up with this place. At least the parking...

Summary: Can't recommend this motel Buildings and grounds are run-down, dilapidated, in need of general repair. There is plenty of room for parking fifth wheels or uhauls. Doors were propped open with rusty drum brake housings. Neither the wifi nor the ice machine were working. Small icebox in room was in the closet, not connected. The room itself was large...

I would highly recommend the Royal Crest Motel if you are looking for a cheap place to do meth or kill yourself. It is shabby and unclean. Many amenities missing or inoperative. Don't expect management to correct anything. Seriously, does Michigan inspect motels? Shut this place down. Then tear it down. It was late and I was tired but I...

The only worse place I've ever stayed was in Mexico and we stayed there to get out of a sand storm. The Royal Crest told me the heater was not working but did not reveal that the TV, fridge, ice machine and floor lamp either did not work or barely worked. Smears on the wall were either lipstick or blood....
