Worst PlacePros: Nothing Cons: Online pictures are better than the hotel room.
Cable didn't work.
Roaches inside room.
worst lodging experience ever.Pros: I was in town for work and we stayed in the casino's most of the week but the prices went up so much for the weekend that we had a book a room elsewhere for 2 nights.. we showed up at the Royal Lodge checked in and went to the room and it was so dirty that we couldn't even sit on the bed as thete were blood stains, dirt mildew everywhere. We went back to the main office and the owner would not refund our money. We even told him we would pay for the night just give us the night back that we weren't staying. he was unreasonable and would not give us any money back and we were only in the room for 5 minutes. we saw another couple complaining about the room next door and they were calling the cops and as did we. The cops showed up and told us that this is normal for this property that they receive a few calls a night when guest check in that aren't looking to do crack or prostitutes in the rooms.. I have stayed in some bad places in the years of my travels but this is by far the worst experience and dirtiest Room I've ever seen. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone and they should be condemned for the way they are kept. Don't ever stay thereCons: I didn't like anything with this hotel. I highly recommend you spend a few extra dollars and go somewhere else as this may be one of the worst properties in the country. if you are looking to do crack or take a sleazy prostitute and lay her down in a bed that is dirtier than her by all means go to this property.. any reviews that said this place was legitimate to stay at are made up by the owners family.. please do not believe them
GROSS DONT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT A DISEASEPros: It was the dirtiest place I have ever seen Cons: I lived how there was food in the microwave the toilet paper was on top of an empty roll not changed and by all means the flys not I could not catch to kill .. I think they lived there since this place was built.
Pros: The location Cons: That my door find lock at all and my phone from the room didn't work the first night and the ax didn't work eather
Wasn't happyCons: Couldn't find my information. Took him about 15 mins. Then told me I would have to switch rooms. That issue was taken care of. Remote didn't work to the TV. Jacuzzi wasn't cleaned out properly. Bed didn't have fitted sheet and room had a bad odor. Water pressure in the shower was very bad.
Great valuePros: You cannot stay that close to AC for any cheaper. The adage you get what you pay for is true tho.
Noone should stay hereCons: When we arrived we went to go check in but waited for at least 5 minutes to be attendeded, when we where finally atteneded to they took a very long time to give us our key. When we got to our room we couldn't help but notice the rotten smell of cigarettes ( in a smoke-free room) and the scent of a backed up toilet. The floors where also very dusty and dirty. When I went to go use the bathroom the floor felt like it was ready to cave in, the toilet looked dirty as did the tub. I personally did not want to shower due to the condition that the bathroom was in and at a point was grossed out. The bathroom looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in weeks and both the tub and toilet had black marks from the lack of cleaning. That's not all though, I also found a blood stain on my bed, a cockroach on the floor, the pillowcases where also very dirty. Also the "complementary" breakfast doesn't come with the room, you actually have to pay $1.25 for a cup of coffee and a cheese danish that you could buy at a gas station. Another complain i have is that the tv doesnt come with a channell guide so for those of you unfimiliar with the cable provider than you will have a tough time navigating the channels, not only did it not come with a guide but the remote barely worked. There was virtually nothing good about this hotel excelt for the location. Overall I strongly recommend that noone stays here due to the poor condition on which the rooms where in. Also the room is not worth the money that we paid, save your money and spend it on a nicer hotel that actually bothers cleaning the rooms.
Needs a upgradePros: Beds were comfy.Cons: The table lamps and the other light were out, the room smelled like sweaty guys, stains on the walls, water tasted like rust, the extra cot was broken before we came into the room. Got a family room and wasn't like the picture. Needs hotel impossible. Never again.
Cons: Very dirty
Greasy AFPros: If you're looking for a cheap greasy hotel just outside of AC this could be your placeCons: It is super greasy! Terrifying stains on the sheets. Weird staff, disgusting stains everywhere, bathrooms are hellish... It's greasy alright
