Quiet and convenient
The Royal Resort was a great base from which to explore the Las Vegas
Strip. It is located a quick 1-2 minute walk from the strip, near the
north end (just South of the Riviera).
We found we could easily walk to most places. It took us less than ten minutes to get to the Wynn or the Fashion Show Mall, for example. There is also a Deuce bus
stop close by, but the nearest monorail stop is a fair distance.
The hotel itself is pretty basic, but the rooms were clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and we never had to wait to get service at the front desk (checking in and out was a breeze!). We booked through a timeshare, so I'm not sure what the nightly rates are like. I would guess you can find cheaper places, but if you want something small and quiet, it might be worth a few extra bucks to stay here. The pool is small, but we never found it to be busy. The cabanas are free to use.
There are numerous restaurants nearby. We were on a pretty tight budget, so we made good use of the food court in the Riviera and the McDonald's across the street. There is also a 24 hour Walgreens right across the street, which was great for snacks and anything else we needed.
Overall, this is a great alternative to the larger hotels. There's no casino, meaning you can just walk into the hotel and up to your room (no navigating the crowds). It isn't fancy, but it definitely suited our needs. We had a great time!
