Exceptionally low rates rule at the Royal Inn Dallas NW — a pet-friendly lodging on a handy, restaurant- and retail-rich highway on Dallas' Irving side of town. This is a two-floor, exterior-corridor property with 45 rooms, where they've jazzed up the decor a bit with vibrant, two-toned wall colors. Cable TV, microwaves and mini-fridges help keep guests satisfied, as do the on-site business center, the guest laundry facility and free parking.
An easy seven-mile ride to Dallas Love Field Airport, the hotel puts guests a five-minute drive to the Las Colinas Mustangs free exhibit at William Square — a rather posh spot, where people mingle and folks in gondolas float along a man-made canal. You can land at top venues like Dallas Convention Center and Dallas Zoo in 20 minutes' time. For fun closer to home, you can hit LB Golf Course, one of the best municipal courses around, less than a five-minute drive.
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is 11 miles away.
