I had booked 2 rooms here because this was the only place with available rooms. The guy acted like he didn't want to talk to me by asking my brother in law if he could help him when he was standing at the door and I was at the counter....after I explained that I was the one that had made... More

When you first look at the exterior of the Red Carpet Motel, your initial thought may be, “U-h-h, no!” The place doesn’t have what a realtor would call “curb appeal”. However, once inside, it is a very nice, very clean establishment, and one of the best values I’ve ever encountered. (And the owner is very accommodating.) First of all, ignore... More

I reserved a room here based on trip advisor reviews that said it was clean. It was NOT clean. The lobby smelled bad. When we entered the room, we could see that the carpet was not vacuumed. The sheets had stains and hair. The toilet had a spot of dried urine. I asked for a refund. The owner was friendly.... More

I took a chance and stayed at this family run motel. Less expensive than Super 8 / Motel 6 so you never know. Pleasantly surprised by the room's cleanliness and EXCELLENT bed. Comfortable, firm, good support for the back. Small room just for the night but very good internet connection, clean bathroom, good TV reception, working remote, all the basics.... More

Very close to the race track, you could walk if driving is not an option :) staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are cool and comfortable, you will not find nicer people that are willing to help in any fashion.

We stayed there the end of May, 3013. This motel is really outdated. It is not clean, lights don't work - needed new light bulbs, smelled strange, over all just gross. The breakfast was just a little fruit and day old donut holes! I would never stay here again!

My wife and I stayed there for a couple of nights over the Memorial Day weekend during a family reunion. We had a good weekend. Rafy, the owner/manager, treated us like family during our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. I am used to a king bed at home and we had to take a smaller one in order... More
