The Lobby was locked with a sign on the door to call for check-in. I called 4 times over a 30 minute period and was forwarded to another phone's voicemail, leaving messages each time regarding my desire to check-in with no response or return call. I had to search and ask a housekeeper to get someone assist me with check-in. The elevator was not working, I was told it was being repaired. Climbing three (3) flights of stairs (outside) to get to the room and the keys didn't work as directed.. Oh, did I mention the dead cockroaches in the stairwell! The room was nice, clean and great air conditioning.

We have stayed at the Rodeway Inn Palm Springs Downtown (a/k/a the Royal Sun) 3 or 4 times over past 20 years and felt it wa a good value for the price. On this visit we had several issues: 1) Every room on every floor had huge boxes stacked in front awaiting replacement of furniture. Piles of old furniture and empty cartons were in the parking area taking up significant parking spots on a busy weekend. 1st morning a huge box was blocking the walkway. We had to walk on it to get out. We were not informed prior to staying. 2) The rooms do not have a sink & vanity in the bathroom. you must stand at a sink alcove in the main room. 2) Automatic lights turn on when you enter the room, however, there is a sensor which turns on those lights when someone in the room moves around. I asked the front desk and they did not know how to disable it. I had to unscrew the bulbs to keep from turning the lights on inappropriately. 3) There is no light near the ice machines near the elevator except on the ground floor (which was out of order). Thus you can't see a special instruction to push a small black button before pushing down the dispensing chute. When I called the front desk to ask about ice at 8pm there was no answer, twice. 4) The entire facility is run-down. And we found ants in the bed. I feel strongly enough that these were avoidable issues (we never had a complaint before) that a refund of some kind is in order.

Great Stay

We recently stayed at the Rodeway Inn and were very pleased. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the room was clean and comfortable. Pool and whirlpool were also very well maintained. Breakfast options are minimal, but include cereal , fruit, waffles, juice and coffee which is all we really needed to start the day. The location is close to downtown and the airport which was very handy. We will definitely plan another stay in the furlture and would definitely recommend this Hotel to others traveling to the Palm Springs area.

A bit dated.

Pros: The breakfast was good but the location for it was too small.
Cons: Some of the male staff at the counter looked glum and were a bit abrupt.
Location: Good location and the pickup location for the free Buzz bus service is very close to the hotel.
It was fairly clean but the hot water tap in the bathtub was dripping 24-7 for 3 days. After we told the staff about it 3 times it finally got fixed. The telephone cord kept falling out of the phone, even after the cord was replaced. Some of the towels looked like they had been used for several years as they were pretty thin.

Nice stay

Pros: heated pool, room was close to pool for kids, clean rooms
Cons: More fresh fruit at continental breakfast.
Location: Hotel is close to downtown area with lots of restraunts.
Very pleased with stay, we were upgraded to pool side room upon request at arrival. Pool was nice and warm, my kids enjoyed swimming. Continental breakfast was ok, some variety. Would be nice with more fruit. Rooms were nice and clean. Bed was good in comfort, just use to a softer bed at home. Close to downtown area. Would recommend the hotel to others.
