After driving for 5 hours to get to the hospital for an emergency visit to a family member, I was greeted with a scowl by the woman at the front desk. My father who was in the hospital booked the room for me. She would not let me check in because my father was not there to sign for the... More

Used coupon from travel plaza book. Sister and I felt totally unsafe in area, parking lot and hotel lobby even though Victor said it was safe. Intuition told us to leave. Opened door to nasty, smelly room and said no way. Went and asked for money back. He said he would credit us and it would take 5 days but... More

We stayed here on our way from Niagra Falls into the White Mountains area. It was conveniently located at the Interstate. However, we had to go through a very dodgy area to get to the hotel. Also, the poeple who stayed there seemed dodgy, too. Our first room had a dead mouse right next to the bed. They gave us... More

The Red Carpet Inn is located 2 doors from the Albany Memorial Hospital, and right next door to the Comedy Works comedy club. My wife and I stayed at the hotel for a visit to see a top entertainer at the comedy club. The low price of the hotel was one of the considerations for making the trip. The hotel... More

I admit I was a little hesitant about the mixed reviews I read before booking here, but I have stayed at the Red Carpet Inn in Syracuse, NY which was nice- so I thought I would give this one a try. Besides, it was only an overnighter to see friends. Upon arriving, it looked like a busy place. I loved... More

Room at first glance old but tolerable. Cheap!!! When inspected beds we found 2 dead bedbugs. I immediately contacted my bank. The front desk clerk ray and the manager were very pleasant and to their credit gave me my $ back with no issues going out of the way to help me they also did immediately contact the pest control...

I remember this quite clearly as it was just last week, and when NorthEast Pest Control brought their certified, dog, the room came up negative for bed bugs. If you would like, please call me and I will send you a copy of the report. As any well managed property would do, we take all complaints of this nature seriously. More

My fiancé & I booked this hotel a half a week in advance for our trip to Albany, so the price was lower than the daily average. Upon arrival, the place didn't look the best, and I was expecting a run downed room. But I was delightfully surprised by the inside. The room was on the larger size, & same... More

Thank you for choosing the Red Carpet Inn for your stay in Albany. I'm glad you were happy with the room and were able to enjoy the bathtub. I do apologize for the trash and plastic cups that the wind was blowing around the property. The open layout of the rooms coupled with the property being on a hill sometimes... More

Stayed here on a few occasions. The location is adequate, the rooms I've had have always been clean and well-maintained, and the staff (well, the one guy who always seems to be manning the front desk) is courteous, friendly, attentive, and helpful. This place is far from the Ritz, but it's a fine little spot to crash while you find... More

We stayed just one night to be close to the airport. Person checking in just before me was charged $10 less, told for the $55 rate he would get a recently renovated room. Well, I paid the $55 plus tax/fees and expected the renovated room. Instead we got a room with buckling ceilings that we thought were going to cave... More

I am sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your stay. The particular room you had, despite the newer bathroom and furniture, did have the older style tile ceiling. There are however no leaks in the room at all. We would have attempted to move your room if we had notification at the front desk of your concerns. I... More
