Royal Park Hotel gets hilarious Yelp review


If you need a hotel in Rochester, Royal Park Hotel is the place to go — at least according to Yelp user Mikahl E. who took to the review site to sing the hotel's praises.

Yelp reviews are always pretty entertaining, and this one is no exception. We appreciate Mikahl's honesty about his intoxication level, and while we aren't quite sure what a "well appointed bathroom" is, we assume it's a good thing.

Here's the full review: 

I will absolutely stay here again anytime I need a hotel room in Rochester. The room was spotless, had comfortable a mattress, and a well appointed bathroom. But the best part for me is the fact that when I made my reservation a month ago, in the "additional comments" portion of the reservation page, I jokingly put "please leave a framed photo of Carlton from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" on the nightstand (I may have been drinking when I made the reservation). Needless to say, I had completely forgotten about that until I noticed it in my room last night and literally fell over from laughing so hard. I'll add a photo if possible. 

10/10 will stay again.

And add a photo he did. Needless to say, we'll be requesting this at any hotel we stay at in the future.
