It is what it is. Allowed me to get a decent sleep half-way on my journey from Florida to New England. They allowed my 2 dogs and had ground floor entry which is why I stayed there. There was some pickup truck noise in the parking lot until about midnight, then turned quiet the rest of the night. AC worked... More

The desk clerk first told us that we did not have a reservation as I held my confirmation In my hand, told her we booked it thru a travel agency, she never heard of a travel agent, I then told her that I was the travel agent. Finally... More

I was scared of the shower. Discusting and dirty. Couldnt even think about taking one. The bed spread was dirty and nasty. After driving thought it would ok just to stop for the night I wish I stopped at a rest stop and slept in my car instead or drive an extra five miles and stay at a better place

Quiet and my bed was clean. A/C worked good. Bathroom looks old and there was a faint smell of somrthing like urine. Afraid to shower here. No blow dryer, iron, alarm clock For $38 including tax and fees, It's ok for the night. Hoping the staff will let me borrow an iron tomorrow. :-)

We weren't looking for anything fancy, just a place to sleep when we arrived at 11pm until we got back on the road again the next morning for a trip from MD to FL. In this price range, I don't know what people expect, but some comments are so out of whack - you get what you pay for and... More

After driving several hours and being it was 11:00 p.m. we had to stop for the night. Thinking that this would be a good place and we were extremely tired by this time we stopped here at the Red Carpet Inn. Well being the person I am I done a quick overlook of the room upon entering, but mind you... More

This place was by far the worst I have stayed at. Would have left for sure, if my car had not broken down at exit 8 and barely made it into the parking lot. Sheets were filthy, the pillowcases were dirty w/ makeup and smeared w/ random nasty... Hole in the wall in the shower (which of course we did... More

This is a 1960"s era property with 75 or so rooms. Although it may me a litttle dated it is exceptionally clean and appealling. My charge was $35 for the night and everthing was exceptional -- from the freindly staff in the office to the maids. For an older property, I don't know how they keep it so clean! Located... More

On Sunday-Thursday, property is VERY quiet! Ask for the high $20/low $30 rate--also find internet coupon. Clean, non-smoking rooms with a just-right bed mattress, good flowing hot shower water, though room doors outside are faded and need repainting; parking lot needs improved restriping/pavement maintenance. Yet, certainly much cleaner room, better beds than heavily advertised, lower-priced Reste Motel just north of... More
