We were traveling from Pittsburgh to Vermont and decided at the last minute to stop in Albany. We found this hotel. When I went in to inquire, the man at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful- even though it was about 10pm. The hotel was very basic, but completely functional. A typical budget hotel. Clean, comfortable. We had... More

Friends & I stayed for 1 night on way to Cape Cod. Room was clean but in desperate need of update. Hotel needs overall repair and updates. Wifi was good. Basic room had microwave & small refrigerator. Close to i90, across from suny Albany. Booked thru Priceline for $50.

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....

I've stayed here several times and each time stayed in a room worse than the one before it. The last room had no door knob on the bathroom door and the hvac unit Didn't work. 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
