This was a last minute stay. It was about 7pm when I checked in to the motel. The cost was $85 for the night. I was not expecting much from a motel. Long as it did not have bed bugs I was fine and there were none!

So I am in the room and as expected it as a room clear out of something from 1970 maybe 1980. The comforter looked old, tv was old, and the side dressers looked like something picked up from a thrift store. But but it was a place to lay my head. The sheets were nice clean and brand new.

I did not ever bother the rush to the bathroom because I knew it would be worst than the room. I went to go shower and to my SURPRISE...the bathroom is something brand new out of 2010 looking. I was so happy. Clear glass sliding doors and nice granite tops. The floor was nice. There was just a little mold on the caulking around the tub frame. Beside that, the bathroom totally change my idea about that motel.

There was no closet, microwave, or mini fridge. But it was good for myself for the evening.

I must say this hotel should not be called a hotel to begin with, because the front desk is rude, and grouchy, the rooms are ugly and not modern to fit my needs, and not to mention the un clean and cheap atmosphere of the room. I will be going somewhere else next time and telling others as well. Not making same mistake twice.

We work on the road and MIGHT be home forty days a year so I have seen them all when it comes to hotels. I don't feel some of the other reviews reflect this hotel at all. We are staying in the handicapped room and the shower is where I want to go when I die--very comfortable and sizable. The base board radiator heat can be a bit much but you just turn on the air conditioner to moderate it to your taste. Our room is very comfortable, the clerks have never hesitated to tell me where to locate a store, restaurant, or service and the maid service which seems to work most of the day and night is always polite and happy to resupply anything I might need. This hotel is like an oyster, kinda beat up on the outside, a little old, kinda rough around the edges BUT inside it is all very good. Our second night here we met a local couple coming out of a room; they come here 3 nights a week to use one of the jacuzzi rooms for his back so yes they do rent rooms by the hour but it is NOT that kind of hotel so don't worry about that. Apparently, the other reviewer thought the Internet Wi-Fi was going to be his home service but it is not. However, it is not bad and overall I have had worse at much higher prices. The lobby looks a bit "sketchy" but I think it is because all the money is going into the rooms. It is a cheaper hotel so I guess the other reviewers thought they should be getting the Hilton for Motel 6 prices. I will never stay anywhere else anytime I am in the Manhattan area again.

As a frequent guest of the royal i would say that is the best value for your money. It is nothing fancy but clean and accomodating. Staff could be a litle nicer but hey you cant have evetything. The motel is also close to everything.
