My wife and I stayed here a week while researching Columbia as a place to live. Though just a very budget-minded place, our room was quiet and clean and we got a good weekly rate. The staff were very helpful in providing information about Columbia.

After a long drive on the higway- it was getting late and we needed a place to stay at a reasonable price. The other surrounding hotels were taking advantage of a local baseball tournament, so their prices had been hiked up for this event. The Royal Inn had a good price but it's not the best place. The hotel is... More

The room was absolutely disgusting. Found a dead cockroach in the sheets on the bed. Roaches were crawling all over the place. We literally saw 5 roaches within the first minute of being in the room. They didn't even flee with the lights on. Blood splattered all over the bathroom door. Cigarette burns all over everything. Smelled awful. We were... More

This motel was just terrible!!! We were in town for Homecoming and decided to drive home at 2:00 in the morning instead of staying there.

First we said we'd like 2 beds in the room. There was a sign that said refigator (yes that's how it was written - pretty much tells you the ethnicity) was extra. Anyway we didn't ask for it and he said he discounted the cost for us a bit (like $2). Went to room and somewhat ok-ish bit kiddy bedspread.... More

I am a frequent traveler and I understand the service differences between 1 star and 5 star hotels. It is unfortunate that our new house was delayed on when we could move in, forcing us to get a hotel room on the busiest weekend in Columbia, graduation weekend. The nice hotels were completely sold out and my fiance found Royal... More

The room was adequate. The staff friendly. The location was a bit tricky to find at first but worked out okay. The negative was that the entire non-smoking floor reeked. The room not so much, but you could still get a whiff of that stale smoke smell.
