We've stayed at several strip hotels over the last 7 years and we wanted to try a budget hotel for a change. The money saved is more than enough to compensate for any small disappointments you may have with the Royal Resort.
It's quiet, calm and doesn't have the big hotel attitude. Check in was a breeze, no queueing and efficient, as was the checkout process. They do take a $100 deposit on your card but it gets refunded on departure.
The rooms are more than adequate and the beds comfortable. Cleanliness was good, although we missed out on maid service a few days in a row because we slept very late (our fault not the hotel's). The bathroom is small but has everything you need and the water is hot, shower pressure is good. The small 'kitchen' area is OK for making tea and coffee in the supplied percolator and a small refrigerator is fine for milk and any snack items you want to store.
The building has a dated feel, probably a 60's or 70's construction and the rooms are a little tired with pretty bland décor but if all you do is sleep in it then it's no big deal.
If you are like us and use the hotel as a place to crash out, clean up and use as a base, the Royal is a good choice. We didn't try any of the other facilities like the pool or Barrymore restaurant but we were told by a couple of other residents that the Barrymore has a good reputation.
So the true test is would we go back? YES WE WOULD, and will next year.
