After reading the reviews, I booked this hotel based on comments about the excellent customer service by Sam & his family. We stayed one night during spring break,before leaving the next day for a Princess cruise. While the hotel is a little older, it was clean, well maintained, and quiet. My husband checked us in and was so impressed with... More

Our second time to stay here, and we will ALWAYS come back here when we visit Galveston. The rooms are so clean and cozy. They do excellent keeping up with cleaning.

Owners are doing the minimum to have this hotel open. Problem is it really should be closed. He seemed nice, but the hotel was dirty and everything about it was bad. I had a hard time making my family stay. Will be curious to see how long this review stays up and most of these reviews HAVE to be submitted... More

I booked a reservation for a few days during spring break not noticing that there is an age issue for my party to check in. I called and spoke with the owner, a very nice man, told him our situation and he was very understanding! We aren't a group of partiers, we're just trying to get some sun at the... More

Recently 8 of our family members embarked on a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Galveston. We arrived on the night of the Galveston Mardi Gras Saturday night event. Although we had a hired driver from HOB airport, we didn't have transportation to get to dinner that night. When we arrived at the Red Carpet Inn, we were not impressed by... More

My daughter and her family checked in here on Valentine's night. They would not be arriving until later that evening, close to 10 or 11 pm. We were worried because the online reservation stated a much earlier check in deadline. I called and spoke to one of the owners and explained the situation, and there was no problem at all,... More

The owners of this place are very nice and accomodating. They are picky about who stays here so you will not find wild parties or loud neighbors being an issue. They are still recovering from "Ike" so everything is not pristine and there are no elevators which can be a problem for some. There are no services nearby so you... More

My wife and I have been cruising out of Galveston since 2008, and every year we go back to the Red Carpet inn. The rooms aren't anything special but the service is exceptional. Sam remembers us even though it's only once a year. He always treats us as family not as guests, The best part is it's just down the... More
