Have been staying at this hotel for four years and it is great as we enjoy going to Saratoga Race track and this hotel is convenient. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Marty is the best and always welcomes you back and goes above and beyond to help with any of your needs or request. We recommend this hotel... More

It was highly acceptable for what we needed. Just a place to sleep for a couple of nights while a family member was in the hospital recovering from surgery. If a place to sleep is all you need, you will be very happy with this particular Red Carpet Inn.

Had to stop in Albany for the nite because of a snowstorm, had to catch my bus back at 9:30 in the morning, couldn't find a single taxi in time, at 9:00 the owner graciously offered to take me to the depot, even refused 20$ i offered him, WOW made my day and saved my trip! Thanks!

I picked Red Carpet Inn for two reasons. First, it only cost $55 and taxes, and second, it seemed to be close to the downtown. After my stay, I still like the price, but am unsure about this location. Looking at the map, it seems easy to get there after one gets off I-90. I do not know why it... More

Looking for a motel, stumbled onto the Red Carpet. Looked clean and presentable and the price was very reasonable. The rooms are clean but not spotless. Amenities are basic but as can be expected for the price. Overall, an okay place for a simple night's sleep.

This was all a bit dated but everything was very clean. The room seemed a bit dark because of the furnishings and it did have the oldest tv I have seen in a long time. Bed reasonably comfortable and slept ok. Really enjoyed the hot shower. Single story with parking outside the rooms, parking area and grounds well kept. WiFi... More

Grounds are beautiful, but the room was terrible. It had a very strong urine smell, and the walls were dirty. When we turned on the air conditioner, the mold and mildew smell was so bad, we had to turn it off. I opened a window to try to get some fresh air into the room, but it had no screen.... More

We stayed here in 2012 and in my review at that time I had remarked that our non smoking room had clearly been smoked in and chemicals used to try to cover it were also present. We stayed here again not remembering our previous stay when we booked. The lobby reeked of cigarette smoke - in spite of the NO... More

A friend and I were in Albany for the Springsteen concert and stayed here for the show. It is an economical motel, costing about a third of other places close to downtown, however you do have to take a bus, cab, or your car to the Pepsi Arena. It is pretty basic, but as with my previous stays, it was... More
