Complete Disaster

The room was ok. Somehow what I order online wasn't what I got. I had to jam 3 people in a one bedroom.

parking nightmare

Upon arrival, there was no parking to check in. Had to park in the road, wait an hour for the valet to take my car to the parking lot that is 7 blocks away. Went to room, found out it is the size of a match box. The next morning called the front desk to get my car. Valet could not find my car, and all together waited two hours for them to bring my car to me. I was not the only one waiting though, the lobby was filled with upset guests. I would not recommend this hotel, although it was a good location.

The place is a dump

No room safe as advertised, wall paper peeling, mildew and mold in bathrooms, broken furniture, pillows torn, no dining area, no pool, bed hard as a rock, remotes do not work, filthy bathrooms. 1 bar of soap and 1/2 bottle shampoo in room. Would not refund money back. Would never recommend Nerrens Natchez, MS

Not very impressed

Room service was horrible. The carpet in the room was wet throughout the stay. WiFi did not work half the time and the "in the room safe" was broken. They still charge you for the WiFi and the usage of the safe box.

Total Experience Was Aweful

The hotel moved my reservation to their "sister" hotel. It was 8 blocks away, dirty and didn't even have hot water. The front desk staff at the Royal was rude and not helpful and they refused to let me speak to a manager. They didn't even offer to cover the cost of transportation to the other hotel.
