This is the type of place that bred Motel 6s everywhere. Basic room with shower for $29. Except Royal Plaza was about 5 times that.
Everything else under $600./night in the Indio, La Quinta area was booked so we reserved the Royal Plaza Inn. Was very overpriced for what it was. Paper thin towels smelling of foul chemicals, shower head that hits you with a weak stream of water in your breastbone, crappy tv, uncomfortable beds. Not the worst place I've ever stayed just a very basic under $50./night motel for way too much money.
As they say- any port in a storm. Beats sleeping in your car but not by much....More
