We're Royal Oak's Hip, Local, & Social Boutique Hotel!

In the 1950s, the Jones Royal Motor Inn came to life in multiple phases, surrounding a home nestled in the center of the parking lot. From the 50s to the 80s, our beloved Jones Motel welcomed guests with open arms, offering the best modern amenities just steps away from the bustling center of Royal Oak.

Unfortunately, in the early 2000s, the property started to look a bit shabby. But that’s when the local business owners stepped in with a grand plan to restore this once-stunning structure to its full glory – and boy did they succeed! 

Say hello to the brand new and totally playful Hotel Royal Oak!

Locally Owned & Operated

The ownership group swooped up this snazzy hotel in 2014 as members of the community with strong ties to its history. They’re all about keeping its past alive while looking towards the future! Fast forward to 2023… local business owner and ex city board member, Jim Rasor, snatched up the ownership group! His big goals? Keeping that super cool and unique boutique experience for all guests!


Get ready for an all-inclusive experience that’ll make your stay unforgettable! We’ve got you covered with free parking, speedy wi-fi, specialty coffee and hot chocolate in the lobby, live entertainment throughout the summer, and even bluetooth room keys. So keep your phone close and say goodbye to the hassle of room keys!

Community Hub

In 2021, Hotel Royal Oak kicked off an outdoor concert series to bring joy to the community and our lovely guests. Tagging up with businesses in town, Hotel Royal Oak is also treating our guests to discounts and promotions at several top-notch eateries in Royal Oak’s downtown district.
