“You get what you pay for.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

The price reflects what you get. Breakfast was minimal, juice, toast, english muffin, coco puffs, wheaties, and coffee. No waffle maker, not very many choices.

The room was really outdated. The bed was clean but not all that comfortable. Linens were clean. The door was really hard to open. The door has a deadbolt but only operable from the inside. The key unlocks the bottom lock which is like one of those patio door locks.

Arrived to K Royale starting our family vacation; first thing that happened was our struggle to get the door open. This place is ancient and trust me; not easy to open the door. I'm not one to complain but the smell was extremely overwhelming after walking into our room. It wasn't just a little smelly; it was drop dead awful! I couldn't even open the window because I broke the frame opening it to air the place out, not to mention there wasn't even a screen. I went to the office and I was very professional in my conduct as I told the person who just checked us in of the problem at hand. I received NO apology; he stared at me and had nothing to say. I ended up getting a refund and staying at Holiday Inn Express; trust me it is more than worth the extra $20!

We stayed at the K Royale Lakefront Inn for the 1st time over the 4th of July weekend and it had its good points and not so good. The location is ok, convenient to town and the facility had a great lake front view. Check in was strange, the clerk was not very welcoming almost bothered about our arrival. We were told we would be in a double bed room and asked if we could stay in a king room, we were told it would be an additional cost which we declined and regretted later. I thought it was strange that they would charge more, never heard of that before. What made it more strange is there occupancy rate was maybe 50% for the weekend and saw several vacant king rooms? We got to our room and it was nice, the décor was dated, but clean. Bathroom was small but functional. There was a mini frig, tube TV and a microwave (which we found out later was broken) and the 2 double beds. The beds were so old, uncomfortable, and springy we sank to the middle. Seriously pay for the king and hope those beds have more support. We woke up the next morning both of our backs were hurting. We tried the other bed the next night, no different. When we woke up I went to the office to get a couple cups of coffee and a donut at 6:30 and they don’t open till 7:00 so went to town for coffee. It would be nice to have coffee makers in the rooms for early risers. The facilities were ok one building was newer and the other was older in need of some updating. The pool was enclosed and nice for an older pool, well taken care of. The hot tub was nice the 1st day but by the second day there were a ton of kids jumping in and out including parents with their babies in diapers, obviously we did not go back in. There was a common area right on the lake and it could be real nice. I would have thought they would have mowed for the holiday and had lawn furniture other than almost like random office furniture, there was a picnic table though. They did have a nice grill and a couple fire pits. Everything being said we would not go back mainly because of the beds, they hurt !

K-Royale is dishonest. They do not keep their word. Beware of traveling with pets that if you book on-line they will raise your price but 55% or more because you have a pet and then charge you an additional pet fee. Be wise and go with an honest hotel....beware of these people.

This hotel is right on Lake Huron with balconies overlooking the lake. Great location.
But the rooms, though large are really dreary, there is no in room coffee and the most minimal toiletries I've seen in years. Breakfast is very weak coffee, wax-covered donuts or fruit-loops. This place is not cheap--well into the price range that includes better amenities. And there is a choice between paying even more for a ground level room or walking up and down rickety outside stairs.
Much better value for the same price at several nearby motels.

An older hotel, but a good one. It’s on the beach and has a firepit if you are in the mood for smores. The pool and hot tub are the first things I go to. The front desk is always so welcoming. I miss staying here now that I am so far away. I have always had a great stay and a good nights sleep. I will be back.

For the price you can not beat this hotel, especially traveling with our two dogs. The people were friendly. The hotel is a little old, but it was very clean. It was so easy to take the dogs out to do their business because our room opened up to the back or lake side .... We did not take advantage of the morning coffee and food, so I can not rate that... we stayed here as a stop on our way to the western part of the UP and then again a week later on our way home. We will definitely stay here again.
