In January of 2012, my cousin, Julie, and I contacted the Red Carpet Inn (RCI) and we each spoke to the owner, Sam Patel, separately. We arranged for a block of rooms for July 28, the night before our family reunion cruise out of Galveston. He agreed to hold a block of rooms and quoted $100 a night. We thought... More

I have been to several motels in USA. I would like to rate more than excellent for this. The reason behind this is their hospitality. I have not such seen patient, lovable & caring owners.

We drove overnight to get here (no sleep), and arrived early. We were exhausted and in need of a shower! I called ahead and asked about check in time, and the owner/manager allowed us to go ahead and check in 4 hours early. The room is not the Hylton, but very clean. Bathrooms are newly renovated which was very nice.... More
