As others have mentioned, this is very economical! Rooms are small, bathroom subpar, furnishings kinda funky and mismatched. However, there are positives: mattresses, pillows, sheets are clean & bug-free. Great pressure in our shower. Microwave and fridge provided. Pets allowed. Only one floor means parking right outside your room. Very quiet night in a rural area, mere feet from I-95....

I would not recommend that anyone stay here. It was the most filthy dirty room I have ever seen. The carpet was gross, the curtains were burned by cigarettes, the linens were stained or just plain dirty, the bathroom had mold in the tub and was very dirty. We had to drive around to the back of the building by...

Spent a Saturday night here on the drive from NJ to South Carolina. The lobby looked ok, but entering the room was another story. Very shabby, but that would have been ok. The rug was very dirty and I would not even walk on it without socks. Missing light bulbs, chipped furniture, and the absolute worst were the towels, paper...

We knew when taking the night for $45 it would not be the Hilton or the Ritz. But I would like to expect clean floors and bathroom. We were given rooms behind the hotel which didnt set well but we were all tired and took the chance. Pulling around back it does appear they are trying to renovate and it...

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...

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...

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...
