"Nice clean room."

"We have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions and had no complaints. The hotel was always clean, but seemed very out-dated. This hotel (or at least part of it) was obviously updated recently, a brand new bathroom, new linens, paint, etc. There was even new carpeting in the hallways. We were very impressed. Great restaurant too."

"The food at the had a wide variety of quality/taste. For example, I ordered the Bison Ribye, most expensive on the menu, while the steak was cook medium rare like I ordered, was tender, it had absolutely no taste for somethat that said was aged for 14days with seasoning but the fajitas were very good."

"The name is hard to find in the phone book. The listing is under Executive Royal Inn but the name over the check in counter and the one that we commonly use when discussing the hotel is Royal Inn. Even on the outdoor sign the Royal is much more eyecatching than the executive!"
