The Washington Hotel goes back to the early days of Royal Oak. By 2000, it had become a problem for the local residents and the city when many of the residents were engaging in criminal activity. Royal Oak sort of went to war against some of the old lodging establishments at that time. This hotel, and many other motels, were shut down as a result. The hotel building still stands as of 2023 and is occupied by retail.
