Do not stay here. Nasty, disgusting. You will throw up staying here. Half the lights did not work, toilet seat broken, painted tiles in bathroom that were peeling; windows so dirty you could not see out of them; ripped, torn moldy carpets; sheets and towels stained; the pictures on this website are nothing of what the nasty place looks like....

Several of the tiles had fallen off the bathroom wall. The room before it had broken windows and a tv that beaver cleaver's mother would... More

We were at the end of the day traveling along I-90 and were looking for a place to stay. Our first three tries resulted in no availability so we tried the Red Carpet Inn. Like other reviewers have stated the place is old and worn. Our room was clean (but old) and it did the job for the night. The... More

I didn't think this place was too bad..$200 for 8 of us to stay per night. A little shabby and hallways smelled a little of old carpet but no big complaints. Beds were clean and comfortable. Decor is all a bit jaded but I don't care...

Please take my advice and do not stay in this nasty place. Especially because it is surrounded by a Hilton Garden Inn and Fairfield Inn. Please I am begging you spend the extra money and stay somewhere else. I couldn't believe what I saw there. I have never been in such a place. The place stank so bad I couldn't... More

I stayed for two nights to attend a conference at SUNY. The hotel is just across the street from the campus. The room was clean and fresh although some of the hallways were stale and smelled of smoke. The AC/HEATER was quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly. There is local bus from the Amtrak station that stops less than... More

Was surprised by this inn. Thought it would be a hole because of the price. The room was clean and had nice furnishings. Desk staff was nice and not noisy floor. Looks a bit dated til you get to your room. Very close to highway and malls.
