First let me tell you, I LOVE old hotels. I LOVE historic hotels. I can easily see past many issues just to stay at a one of a kind gem in the making. These were my hopes with this hotel, but I was sadly disappointed. S*line the Manager was passionate about the hotel and the history. He was nice enough...

This dive hotel isn't a hole, but it's almost a hole. If it's your first date to this place then it might end up being your last date. After giving it a chance I WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN because the rate is right and the proximity to restaurants/bars is walking distance, but keep in mind this place is not for...

Came to Binghamton to visit son in grad school. Thought I'd stay at an interesting boutique hotel in the heart of the city. I read the other mixed reviews and took a chance. Really wish I hadn't. Fifth floor rooms in August are hot. AC in room isn't adequate. Had to ask for an additional fan. Front desk clerk demanded...

If you liked The Budapest Grand Hotel movie, you'll love staying at the Grand Royal. There are no uniforms for the staff so your never sure who's in charge. You get to make your own waffles in the morning if you are into high carb breakfasts. The front facade is the former Municipal Building (Looks Grand!) and the reception is...

A cursory glance of the Grand Royale hotel in Binghamton, New York, might reveal a hotel that has passed its hay day; However, a closer examination reveals a management devoted to restoring the hotel to days gone by. The management, headed by the owner Salim, works particularly hard in making your stay comfortable. On the weekends, the hotel boast a...

Why is 0 rating not an option? I tried to book this hotel several months in advance for a graduation event in May. Everything seemed to go fine on the website, but I never received a confirmation email. When I called the hotel, they said they were having some issues with their website, and that there were actually no rooms...

Wanted to stay downtown in hopes of walking to a ballgame at NYSEG. Location is good but the weather did not cooperate. Chose Grand Royale because there's appeal to the old places. This one hints at it but doesn't quite get there. Clean despite showing signs of age (and maybe neglect?) The guy at the desk (Salim) is great. I...

I was intrigued when I saw this hotel; it looked very unique. Well I can tell you it certainly was a unique experience. I do want to start by saying the staff was very helpful in getting us checked in early. However, the room had no air conditioning and it was in the high 80's. The floor was very dirty...

This is an older hotel that has had some updates, just not quite enough. The bathroom fan was very loud and the elevator sounded like it was going to fail at any time. These issues would not stop me from staying again since it was by far the least expensive that close to downtown.
