Royal Inn Motel Long Beach
Ranked #35 of 58 Hotels in Long Beach
Reviewed 20 October 2015

My wife and I recently spent the night at this hotel after losing the Hotwire lottery. Supposedly they had this classified as a 2 star, 85% recommended hotel. I find that very hard to believe. 1 star would be 3 stars too many for this place. The location is pure ghetto, parking is a joke for anything larger than a compact car, the rooms are tiny and smell terrible, assuming you have the good luck to not get offered a smoking or smoking room. The staff is nice enough if you can get past the language barrier. Oh, did I mention your new, 6 legged roommates? No? How could I forget?

When I checked in, against my better judgement, I looked around for insects but didn't see anything obvious. When I woke up in the morning, there was a small roach on the floorboard by the foot of the bed. Gross, but I was on my way out the door, so whatever. By the way, you know it's bad when a roach has become just "whatever". It got worse when my wife went to shower and found a fully engorged bedbug in her pajamas and 3 welts on her leg. We killed them both (You're welcome Royal Inn Motel), but had to make sure to quarantine our luggage when we got home so we could wash everything to avoid an infestation of our home.

Don't stay here. Just don't. It isn't worth it. Yes, it was inexpensive, sort of. Another 20 bucks and we could have been in a far nicer place. No one should have to pay to go through this.

Stayed: October 2015

We stayed in the motel for eight days. At the beginning, we were scared by the bad reviews from the internet. So I made a call to the staff first to ask them to make a good arrangement for our stay since we booked two rooms with double queen size beds. When we got there, they already assigned our rooms next to each other on the second floor. The rooms are spacious, neat and convenient with microwave and refrigerator. The location is close to anywhere we went, Disney, Long beach and so on. Best of all, the price is excellent. We really had a good time during this trip and appreciate the help and good arrangement from the staff of the motel.

Room Tip: Rooms are clean and spacious. The location is convenient. And the price is excellent.

Royal Inn Motel isn't usually in my repertoire of places I stay. But as I was in the area for a little while, decided to find something a bit more economical.

In terms of location, the motel is in Long Beach in an area called Cambodia Town. It's definitely in the more "ghetto" part of town but still safe to walk the streets during the day and evenings. Nights are fine if with a friend or more; I walked it alone and was fine. Around the area are within easy reach the basic fast food places, laundry facilities, and convenience stores. Don't expect more than this.

The room itself is a cozy place. It does the job and is clean and has hit running shower, fridge, microwave. Surprisingly, the lighting is well lit. Internet is just okay. A struggle some days to get online. So, we sure you can use your smartphone for data purposes. Rooms are clean.

This is a simple place with simple accommodation. Staff are friendly and nice.

Let me first stat off by saying used to live in Long Beach, so I was in for no big surprise when I booked the room
What I was disturbed to find was that there is a NO VISITORS rule had I known that I surely would NOT have booked that room
Due to allergies I would have stayed with my two grown sons I had planed to give each one of of my boys hair cuts and and a old fashioned straight edge razor shave the management argued with me for over an hour all the while on the phone to his boss in their native langue yelling and hackn up some imaginative phlem.

In the end I just said ENOUGH and did what I INTENDED TO DO as they stared at us and we stared right back

Room Tip: go anywhere but this flop house
