Reviewed July 11, 2008

This hotel was much nicer than the price led me to believe. It was clean,quiet,and in a conveinent location only about a mile from a trolley station. This hotel has all the necessities including a tv, fridge, microwave, Coffee machine and the tv had HBO as well as many interesting local news channels. If you are bringing a kid then make sure you bring a basketball there is a basketball hoop in the driveway.

Understand before you read that this is not an upscale motel and never will be. Nevertheless, we were surprised and pleased by this quiet motel on the main road into Cooperstown. My husband had little trouble checking in, and we found the room, while not a model of modern luxury, to be comfortable enough.

The room was clean and fresh towels were provided for both days of our stay. Microwave, coffeemaker, fridge and cable were all supplied and in working order. The room contained two double beds and a small table and chairs. A couple of inexpensive plastic patio chairs outside our door allowed us to enjoy the cooler evening air. The A/C worked.

Since this hotel was going for half the $$ of the chain motels, I felt we received excellent value and would have no problems staying there again.

Our only problem -- an alarm clock in an unoccupied room that went off at midnight -- was dealt with fairly quickly and did not repeat.

Our overall impression: "Good, basic accommodations for people on a budget -- wait a minute, that's us!."

Based on previous reviews, my friend and I were a little apprehensive about staying at the motel, however since we were only staying one night, and on a limited budget, we decided to chance it. After checking into our room, we were quite pleased with the accomodations. The room was clean, with a micrcowave and a fridge and the shower and bathroom were also clean. Nothing fancy, but for the price, it's typical for similar motels in the area and in other parts of the country. The motel is several miles south of Cooperstown, but it only took us 5 minutes to get to Main St and the ride was very scenic. We also found a great little coffee shop (Java Joes) to get something to eat and drink. Altogether, we had a great time in Cooperstown. If you are on a budget, like we were, then this motel will suit the bill.

My sons and I stayed at the Red Carpet Inn expecting to find the motel acceptable based on AAA's rating. It took 10 minutes to check in ( I was the only one in the office) which should have sent up a red flag immediately. The clerk seemed to be "bothered" by my presence.
Upon entering the room everything looked fine. We settled in and one of my sons used the bathroom and upon flushing discovered the water in the bowl filled to the top. It did not run over, yet. The water slowly subsided but about 15 minutes later my son hears water running. Upon entering the bathroom the toilet had overflowed because the water in the tank was running. I turned the water off at the stopcock and proceeded to "mop" up the mess. I called the office and no one answered. We shortly departed to go downtown and I stopped in at the office to report the problem. The clerk, a different one than when I checked in, acknowledged the complaint. When we returned from downtown we went straight to bed. The next morning we noticed that there had been no change in the condition of the toilet. Upon checkout I mentioned it to the clerk again and all he said was that no one told him.
My advice is not to stay at this place. It seems that the customers are a bother to the staff.

Stayed at this motel for 2 nights because the Holiday Inn Express had no rooms available. The lady at the front desk was less than friendly. The room was decent-sized and clean. The housekeeper did an acceptable job. There is no pool, game room, or any other on site diversion for kids. The room was quiet, and the a/c cooled the room effectively. I would stay there again, but it would not be my first choice in Cooperstown.

We booked this location because it was rated by AAA and was convenient to Cooperstown. We should have slept in the car because it would have been cleaner and the staff less abusive. We did not inspect the room upon arrival because given the track record of AAA reviewed places we assumed a certain level of quality. However, when we went to shower the following morning we discovered used towels hanging on the hook behind the door, a filthy tub including brown/black residue on the bottom and a streak of shampoo on the wall and a soap wrapper behind the door.

Friends of mine who stayed in the adjoining room also reported poor shower cleanliness and apparently a dirty toilet as well.

Upon checkout I brought these details to the attention of the clerk who assumed a combative tone and stated because we did not notify him he was not given the opportunity to correct it. I stated we did not discover the issue until just before checkout but again he essentially told us it was our fault since we did not notify him. It wasn't the hotels' fault because they failed to clean but it was instead the customer's fault. Hmmm.

I attempted to give the clerk a final opportunity to make amends and he became visibly angry. Thinking at this point discretion is the better part of valor I decided to just pay for the room and leave.

My wife and I (and my friends) emphatically DO NOT recommend staying at this hotel, at the very least because hotel staff was rude and decidely un-accomodating. Stay there at your own peril!
