Royal Plaza Inn
Interesting side story arising from the Oluwatofunmi Kaiyewu story. Kaiyewu had been a medical student at Windsor University Medical School at St. Kitts in the West Indies. Students who fail courses at the main campus are sent to Royal USMLE courses taught at contract schools in the US to retake those classes. One of these courses is taught at 2400 West Main St. in Carbondale, which coicidentally is the Royal Plaza Inn. According to this, the Royal Plaza no longer rents rooms to the public but serves solely as a dormitory for students from Windsor and is either an extremely fine hotel or slowly falling apart.
