All of the employees were very friendly and helpful. Room was very basic, but clean and affordable. We only stayed over night, but it was right on the highway and their were many conveniently located restaurants.

This hotel is in dire need of an update. They probably shouldn't charge as much as they do for what it is. Our rooms were by the lobby, and an office door that had a loud happy dog behind it. After 10:00pm is too loud, too late to listen to an employee's dog! The power was out all day the... More

Almost everything you need (no clock or microwave), nice people, extra large rooms, nothing fancy. The restaurant/bar/coffee shop right on the property is a big plus. Good food, good drinks, good service.

We stayed here for several nights. The inn needs renovating and changing. The rugs in the hall are worn out and dirty. The hot tub was cold. The lounge chairs around the pool could not have been less comfortable and it would not take much of an investment to improve them. And, there were no pool towels. You have to... More

This is the type of place that bred Motel 6s everywhere. Basic room with shower for $29. Except Royal Plaza was about 5 times that. Everything else under $600./night in the Indio, La Quinta area was booked so we reserved the Royal Plaza Inn. Was very overpriced for what it was. Paper thin towels smelling of foul chemicals, shower head... More

I received a good basic hotel experience for the price I paid. There was a minor issue with my card/lock entry into the room, but I needed to see some friends so the hotel staff remedied the issue while I was gone.

These guys are crooks! Their policy states that a reservation can be cancelled, but they refused to cancel mine.

Great price, nice enough, as I just work, eat next door, and get a quiet sleep. There is a pool, but this is not a vacation spot. I don't ask for much, and I get what I pay for. I stay here for a day or two, every other month or so. Suits me just fine.
