“not a 3 star but ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2004

The Red Cottage is not a 3 star hotel. It is older and pretty basic. The pictures of the rooms are not the rooms you get. Maybe the suites are remodeled but the regular rooms show their age. The room is clean but walls are a bit thin so the morning trains and the vacum cleaner can be heard. The bathroom mirror only extends to 5'9 so you have to duck if you are taller.

Thank ahunton

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2003

My wife and I stayed at the Red Cottage Inn & Suites in August 2003 and just wanted to say that it was great.. My room feautured a DVD player and so many amenities at such a great price that I was amazed.. The staff was personable and extremely helpful with getting my directions and tips for restaurants in the area.

I hope this helps..
