Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with the Royal Sun Inn and taking time to review. We are sorry that you were disappointed with the stay, but would have been better if could have put observations in detail so that we could have addressed it. In any case we have adequate steps to improve the rooms and décor seriously and...

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...

This was an average hotel who provide you with everything you require in a fairly short stay. The rooms are of a reasonable size, with microwave and fridge. Nice enough pool area and reasonably priced when compared with the rest of Palm Spings. The location is reasonable and it takes about 20 minutes to walk to the popular downtown area....

This is an average hotel. Good points are - hotel isn't over priced, has free wi-fi, lovely lobby, has an ample breakfast, located near the downtown area. Rooms are equipped with a microwave and a small refrig, and the beds are quite comfortable. Not so good - bath towels should be replaced as they are extremely thin and quite small....

Beds are comfortable, furnishings fine. Internet was a bit spotty despite my room being close to the office. I stayed here due to price. but have found nicer places at good rates on other visits.

On checking in I found the only person in my 3 week holiday in Mexico & the States that was not pleasant. I was also charged $65 + Tax per room which though still cheap seems different to most others. Check rate when booking as my friend who lives in PS said that it should have been only about $40...

This was our first time visiting Palm Springs, which at Christmastime was cool and refreshing. The downtown has great restaurants for all times of day, and everyone was very open and friendly (did it help having a babe in arms?). The Royal Sun was a great value: for its $50/night including taxes it offered a reasonable room with fridge and...

Stayed 2 nights here. For just under $50 dollar p/ night I have no complaints. We were given a queen bed room on the 3rd floor. It had an awesome view of a mountain. Yes, the room is a bit dated, but the bed was very comfortable. Carpets and furniture were clean. It had a fridge and very powerful microwave....

When I first stumbled on The Royal Sun Inn online I thought there was something wrong: a rate of ~$40/night at a place that had fairly decent reviews. Looking to save money and not being able to find anywhere else that could beat that price, I took up the offer for a two-night stay. Though the oh-so-dated 1950’s design of...
