Rather than hotel/motel chains, I much prefer older hotels with character and charm and the Royal did not disappoint. Built in 1908, much of the original hotel remains but modernization has taken place. We stayed in an older room overlooking Main St but the room, and town, for that matter, was quiet at night. We're not big television viewers, so...

Friendly staff. The room was comfortable enough. It would have been nice to have some bigger TV. There was no hot water available in the morning. That is the reason I will not go back. That, and we had to listen to a loud squealing/ groaning sound every time anyone used water. That sound woke me up several times. By...

Thanks for providing your review and enjoying the comfort of the room. I'm concerned about the no hot water and noises to disrupt sleep and quiet - those are things we work hard to resolve. We'd love to have you back here for a great stay!

We recently stayed at the Royal Hotel on a Sturgeon fishing trip. The hotel was built in 1908 and has all the wooden floors and feeling of a 100 year old hotel, but they have also added some WIFI and TVs for some modern convenience. Great location right on old Main Street. Staff were friendly and the rooms comfortable. I...

Hello! I have to start by saying that even though I was not overly impressed with the room, the staff were amazing and the old hotel is really very cool. Unfortunately what I did not find impressive at all was the room. The room was, to say the least, very spartan. There was nothing in it all to make it...

Thanks for your comments, Mike. Glad that you enjoyed the service you received from the people working here - we did enjoy having you here - and the ambiance of the hotel. I'm sorry that you found the room "spartan". There's a whole variety of rooms in the hotel with a variety of size of room and character to go...

The staff are really genuine and the place is immaculate. The restorations to date are impressive and you can really appreciate what the owners have done. They have a ways to go but the room was super clean, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, very quiet. Did I mention the clawfoot tub? Well you can't put a price...

Staff are always super friendly, rooms are fantastic, especially considering the price. Right downtown, close to everything. I live within easy driving distance and yet will definitely stay again any time I can find an excuse.

This century old hotel has that certain quirky charm many travelers look for. What really made our stay really enjoyable were the cheery and genuinely welcoming staff. It's clean and furnished appropriately for the era and farming town it represents. In other words, not that over the top frilly country charming look so male travellers can feel comfortable here too....

We enjoyed our stay a quiet room. Beautifully decorated and updated. The staff helped us with finding us a room on the lower floor since i have MS and cant do too many stairs. Was nice to see a older hotel redone using older style but orignal woods. New windows keep the road noise down too almost nothing.

A friendly heritage hotel that has been lovingly restored by the owner. Tons of character and memorabilia in the lobby and rooms. Great food in the restaurant plus a gay-friendly bar next door, Wilde Oscar's!
