Royal Sun Inn itself was another ordinary motel in a quiet neighbourhood in Palm Springs. That's not too bad, and it's pretty close to downtown too, so the location is pretty convenient. The owner there appeared to be a little reserved at first, but after some chatting he proved to be really friendly. He also turned out to be really helpful too despite the many stupid things we did there. First, I had left my iPhone charger at the previous accommodation, and he very nicely went out of his way to help me source for a new one that was left behind by the previous occupants. Even though we didn't succeed in the end, I truly appreciate his efforts.
Next, I stupidly left my bag on top of the car as we were leaving, and as a result the bag fell off the car and went missing after that (go on and laugh, that was an amazingly stupid thing to do). When we realise our folly, the bag was already gone. When we went back to Royal Sun Inn, the bag was not found, but the owner was really helpful about it. In fact, that night, after we had left Royal Sun Inn, the owner called us to gave us an update about the bag (because we had filed a police report, and the police was liaising with the motel too - in fact, I have to say the Palm Springs Police Department was really helpful too, calling me constantly to update me about the bags whereabouts - it was found in the end). I was really impressed by that commitment.
Overall, I will say the motel itself was an ordinary one, nothing overly special, but the service is really impressive. Recommended!
