“Worst stay ever in Blythe, CA”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Price was ok, however, our experience was not ok! Guy blowing leaves with a leaf blower was outside our room @ 6 a.m. waking us up after a late night arrival. No cream or sugar packets were available in room with coffee pods for coffee maker. The toilet stopped up & we had to ask for a plunger. Then the water drained so slowly from the batntub during our showers that we nad to shower with water level in tub above our ankles. Then we were called by 11:15 a.m.about our need to check out of our rm & we explained the troubles & the manager offered to put us in another room to complete our showers, however we had already just dealt with it & it was too late to lug our stuff to another room. Upon checking out, I explained all the difficulties & the lady @ the desk said I had already gotten the AARP discount & refused to refund any portion of the $82.50 we paid. I would recommend staying somewhere else to any other travelers. Try the Days Inn.

The Regency Inn exceeded our hopes and expectations, never imagining we would get so much for such a reasonable price. Room was attractive, updated,comfortable, decent-size refrigerator and microwave.Pool area looked like ancient Greece, breakfast was pretty good with waffles and the usual. Staff very friendly. We came in late at night and had to leave early the next morning so we didn't get to try out the hot tub that the owner had already started warming up for us, knowing we had to hit the road early. Too bad we don't have reason to pass through Blythe more frequently.

I stopped to sleep after driving all night. After trying 4 other hotels, it was the first one that had rooms available that I could check into at 5:00 am. I had a king bed room that was roomy with nicely remodeled bathroom. It is basically an older hotel that has been cleaned up. There was a microwave and mini-fridge in the room, and free wireless internet.

The weather was cool when I arrived, so I didn't test out the air conditioner, and was sleeping during the free breakfast.

We stayed at the Regency Inn 2 times in July. This is a very good motel in Blythe. The rooms are cool when you check in, not hot like in other motels. There is a nice pool and the breakfast is good. The beds are confortable, rooms are clean. We make a trip to California from New Mexico every summer, and I will stay at the Regency Inn from now on.

Picked this one because of a coupon but was pleasantly surprised. Nicely updated older motel. Had almost a greek feel to it. Pool area was beautifully kept up and modern with a fountain out front and nice stonework. Room was also kept up nicely, with beautiful tile in the bath area, extremely clean and everything one could of wanted for an overnight stay. Would recommend to others based on this stay.

During our 3 day stay, the management was ever helpful. When I lost my wallet they had the cleaning lady help in the search, they even went to the troulble to search the trash cans on the premises. The exterior has been upgraded and looks very nice, what the exterior is masking is a very old motel. While out bathroom was clearly re-modeled and looked very nice the main room was still 70's era decor and the plumbing was still old.
The free breakfast was odd, they had individually wrapped small pastries, and of course you standard cereal and some fruit. It was the typical continental breakfast, except for the waffle iron. They had premixed waffle batter and the iron was hot when I walked in.


The room had a musty scent, kinda like Eau-de-Olde-Motel, and the beds were less than wonderful.

However, the room was very spacious and clean. Would I stay there again?

Maybe
