My dad and I are moving me back to Chicago from California. We stopped in Gallup on night one. First off, Gallup is not a "shopping town", so get that through. It's along historic Route 66 in NM. Not best appearance on outside, but amazing management and very clean rooms. They offer smoking rooms, too! Hey now! Perfect for that... More

The title says it all, this motel welcomes you with a strange smell at the reception/breakfast area. And in the morning, when you're looking forward to your breakfast, that smell becomes a problem. The manager welcomed us very friendly, but wasnt so friendly the next morning when serving breakfast, we got the impression that he was running the entire place... More

My son and I were looking for a clean, economical choice relatively close to the Four Corners, and this hotel is just that thing! The room was clean, the beds were not bad and the hotel operators are very friendly! The breakfast is very basic but it does the trick -- important if you cannot afford to blow big bucks... More

My boyfriend and I broke down in Gallup and had to get a room last minute and Royal Holiday had vacancies. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and the King size bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was meager, but acceptable. The pool/hot tub/ sauna were all out of order for our stay unfortunately. Also, the wifi was... More

The hotel looks like it has seen better days, but the rooms are relatively clean and comfortable. It would have been perfect for an overnight stay on old Route 66 except for the trains that blow their whistles as they go by all night. I now know how "My Cousin Vinny" must have felt. The owners are very nice and... More

When you enter the main lobby to check in you will definitely notice a bad smell. The manager offered a bottle of water to you since its 99 outside that was nice. Room is average nothing special. Remote for TV did not fully function sound button did not work if that bothers a customer. I rate it average medium priced... More

I am a woman traveling with just my dog. I am very picky & like things clean. I trusted the reviews & am delighted! I was offered a cold bottled water at check in. Only $10 for my dog.

The Royal Holiday Motel had great people, a very clean room, a comfortable bed, and a good shower. It lacked sufficient electrical outlets for a laptop, two camera battery chargers, two phone chargers and two tablet chargers. We carry a power strip as a good many hotels/motels have this deficiency. The managers/owners were extraordinary. The only drawback is the proximity... More

My grown son and I were on a road trip and stayed overnight here. The owners are truly kind and embody the spirit of hospitality. Sure, all the decor is a bit dated, but it's scrupulously clean. The owners will cook you waffles and scrambled eggs for breakfast, if you like - they practically insisted on it while we were... More

This motel is on historic Route 66, which is to say that the area is quite run down. But the motel rooms are another story. The property as a whole looks a little shabby, but we found our room clean, comfortable, and in good repair. Also, the owners cooked us eggs and waffles in the morning to go with the... More
