So, this is competing for the cheapest accommodations in the Herkimer area. If you book here, you have to have tempered expectations. Unfortunately, $65 doesn't get you very far these days, even when it comes to super low budget motels. I was relatively pleased with the check in after midnight. I hit a buzzer, and about a minute later a... More

Lodging choices in Illion, NY, the virtual birthplace of the Remington Arms Company in 1816 are quite limited, and the owners of the Red Carpet Inn are quite aware of this fact. Upon our 6:20 pm check in on Friday, June 6, 2014, no one was in the office, but after pressing the bell, a young woman came out with... More

We stopped here since it looked ok on the outside. First room toilet did not flush. Gave us another room that you could tell no one had stayed in for a long time. Inside the toilet had a dirty ring around it from not being cleaned. Dust on lamps. DId not even have a clock or a phone. Worst place... More

We stopped with our band on tour this August and tried to get into the Herkimer Motel but it was full. The desk person called ahead to see if there were any rooms available at the Red Carpet. There was a big Military reenactment in the region and most inns were full. We were coming in with 2 vans and... More

You know, I should learn- as the old adage says, "you get what you pay for" We only needed a place to sleep- it was already late and we were leaving early in the morning- so I thought I'd just find the cheapest place I could... This motel is not clean. The "continental" breakfast is a joke- they have one... More

My review can be summed up quickly: We were gone within 20 minutes of originally checking in. The full story: I reserved a non-smoking, King bed room. When I walked into the room, it reeked of smoke. I immediately returned to the front desk and told them. The man was confused and I explained that this was a non-smoking room... More

Mold all over Bathroom tile, black grout, sharp edges on the shower stall aluminum, no rooms are handicapped accessible, small enough to prevent walking with a walker. Bathroom had one half roll of toilet tissue, no hair dryer, carpet was old, dusty. One lamp did not work, no plastic wrapper for ice bucket, but no worries, the ice machine was... More
