“Great value and even better service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The hotel is right off the water and is right next to a ferry crossing. The rooms were clean and didn't look run down at all. The price was amazing for the location. I slept great on the beds. The best part was the service. The person at the front desk was very kind, friendly and went out of his way to serve us. Most excellent.
I will recommend this place to friends and family when they head to Galveston.

My husband and I booked this room for our first year anniversary and the service was excellent the people who ran this hotel were amazing! The hotel is older but it's a great value. I really enjoyed our trip! Thank you so much for being so nice!

Red Carpet Inn is close to the ferry, and at about 3 miles from the cruise terminal. The staff is very kind. Rooms have average comfort but clean. It was a good value for my business trip, and I recommend it.

This family owned and run hotel is wonderful. It is located right by the ferry and the seawall so it's location is perfect. The best part about the hotel is the people running it. They go out of their way to be helpful. The security there is also a plus. They really look out for you. I did not expect to be this pleased. This was a welcome surprise. I would and will stay there again.

Red Carpet in is the best. We called multiple places before arriving to Galveston on our cruise vacation and Red Carpet gave us the best price. Once we arrived we were very impressed with the service and friendly staff which offered to help bring our luggage to our room and asked to call their office if we needed anything else. The rooms are clean; area is much quit, it is next to the ferry and not very far away from the Galveston port and not far from the beautiful beach. The next morning the owner allowed us to leave our recreational vehicle in his gated parking lot and offered to give us a ride to the Galveston Port which is about three miles away. I highly recommend Red Carpet in in Galveston for their friendly service, cleanliness and willingness to accommodate. If I ever need to spend the night at Galveston Red carpet in will be the place where I stay for their friendliness, very nice rooms and wiliness to accommodate to our needs.

My stay here was great. The rooms are clean and the pool is awesome! It's well maintained. The location is also great as well since it's close to the ferry boats and beach. Sam, the owner, was very accomodating and friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

A little late posting this . . . We went and stayed (again) at Red Carpet Inn. As usual, wonderful service (I agree with Misti Varner . . . Sam and staff is more like family). Wonderful stay, cold a/c, quiet and wonderful! We forgot one of our pillows. I called Sam and he's saving the pillowcase for us! We're going back Labor Day Weekend, so we'll get it then! Lovely people . . . great prices . . . stressless stay!
There are smoking and non-smoking rooms . . . For some reason (most likely the proximity to Crystal Beach), we've never gotten in the pool, but it looks very clean and inviting. We'll try to do that time Labor Day Weekend!
