Reviewed February 8, 2014

Recently stayed there for 6 nights and booked via Expedia for a good price, the hotel is coneniently placed for both the Convention Centre and the Strip. The rooms are a good size if a little jaded looking .Beds are the usual large size and comfortable by American standards ,the TVs unfortunately aren't being fairly old and small in size. There are coffee making facilities and a fridge is provided. Could have done with a microwave in the room and the safety deposit boxes are available only at the reception. We had to call out maintenance to repair heating twice.

Also having to pay for Wi-Fi is a nusciance , The Denny's around the corner has free wifi .

Can't comment on the Pools as it was too cold to use them.

All in all for the price we paid it was still good value for money

We have stayed in many hotels in Las Vegas over the past 20 years, but the Royal Resort was a pleasant surprise. Our booking was a last minute one night stay on the way to Los Angles. Searching online for an inexpensive hotel near or on the strip, the Royal kept coming up on the list. I picked the Royal because they did not add $15-$20 per night fee that other hotels added. We laughed as we entered the lobby because we felt like we were in the 1950s Las Vegas. Low ceilings, no noise or smoke. A great place to shoot a "Rat Pack movie". Check in took 2-3 minutes because there was NO LINE. Our room, while a bit smaller than many in the new mega resorts was very clean, updated and not worn. Very surprising. We did not use, but we could see the pool from our room and counted 3 (three!) people in it. It has 3 cabanas and a hot tub. It looked like a nice place to relax away from the mega pools. Plenty of free parking and a short walk to the Encore. We will be back.

This hotel is average at best - a decent price for the space compared to the glitzy casino hotels on the Strip. But it is a very tired, outdated hotel with limited services. It's only real selling point is proximity to the Las Vegas Convention Center. If you don't need to be there, then you can find better for a comparable price elsewhere. What I found astounding were the internet fees - $40 for 7 days, which isn't so bad until you realize that this is PER DEVICE! So if you are traveling with more than one person - say a family with children who use laptops and iPads, you will quickly eat up any savings in room costs with their internet fees. In this day and age, I found this incredible and a blatant rip off, especially since the hotel tries to market itself to families or those who need space for several people in one room or suite. I hope other travelers protest this so that perhaps there will be a policy change in the future. Very disappointing from a facility that should be doing more, not less, for it's customers, especially given the competition in a city like Las Vegas.

I was in Las Vegas for a training class, so I wasn't looking for a big name hotel. The Royal Vacation suites were just what I needed. I exchanged a time-share week, so the cost was minimal.The room was clean and comfortable.

The marquee outside shows the name "Royal Resorts". This is actually not a resort in that there are no activities or amenities that you wouldn't expect in a hotel of similar size. The hotel is conveniently located just off the north end of the Strip. Even though I did not visit any of the casinos, it was great fun to drive along the Strip. I don't think there's a place like it anywhere else.

I did not have to pay for wi-fi in the room because I was a time-share guest. Otherwise, I would have had to pay the going rate of about $8.00 a day. There is free wi-fi in the lobby, but that is not a secure connection.

I booked the hotel on some hotel site. The trick of this hotel is that the price looks rather good but there is cancellation fee. So basically you get stuck in before you know all the things.

OK. When we got there, the outside of the hotel looked really good, but the room for four of us looked small. Wifi is not free.

When we suggested to cancel the room with the folks there, they said that that was not their responsibility and I had to call to the head quarter somewhere else with confirmation number online. What kind of accountability was that?

Pros:

- Good location, very close to the center.
- Great customer service. If you need anything, call and they respond quickly.
OK a place generally.

Cons:
- No microwave in the room.
- Paid wifi.
- Small room.
- Not free cancellation

Calling this place a ‘resort’ might be a little bit of a stretch, but this hotel is definitely a great place to stay. Our room was clean and comfortable.

One of our biggest concerns is being able to quickly get from our car to our room without going through the typical hotel casino maze. This place fit the bill. Parking was ample. Our walk to the Convention Center was easy. We rented a car, but walking the strip was also very easy from the hotel. The Walgreen’s nearby was also handy.

The staff was friendly and helpful with the questions we had and provided extra towels to our room quickly when we asked for them.

We did not take advantage of the pool or hot tub, but both looked very nice from a distance. We did not eat at the restaurant in the hotel.

I agree with another reviewer that the balcony is very small and that the view wasn't great. We found it funny and didn't really intend on sitting out on it anyhow. Not a big deal to us.

A small, fun group formed every night by the piano in the lobby. They seemed to be having a nice time.
