Scottish Inn
Ranked #29 of 51 Hotels in Galveston
Reviewed October 20, 2012

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!

My husband and I just returned from a weekend get-a-way in Galveston. After reading the Tripadvisor reviews, we booked a room at The Red Carpet Inn. We were not disappointed. The owners were super-nice, the room was CLEAN and quiet. We will be booking there on our next trip !

My family and I booked online, and when we arrived at the property, we realized that the pictures on the internet looked much different. The place was dirty and empty (probably because of their bad service). The lobby and the rooms smelled bad, and the a/c in the room didn't even work. The breakfast cafeteria consisted of three stools in the corner of the lobby and a microwave. When we told the manager we would look for a hotel closer to the beach, he tried to pressure us by saying he was gonna sell our room. (By the way, let me repeat, the place was empty). My father replied by saying that we, as customers, had the right to look around without cancelling our reservation. The manager made a scene and yelled at us until we got back in the car. He then proceeded to charge us more than $100 for a "no-show" charge. I do not recommend any one to go to this hotel, especially families with children who expect friendly service

Hello Samantha. You and your father said you were coming back that evening after looking at other motels near the beach. Reservations must be cancelled 48 hours prior to arrival to avoid a cancellation charge of the first night room rate.

The owner was great. We booked online and my husband added a special request.. Of clean sheets (being funny) and at check in he said ,"hello George from Bryan with Clean sheets. The room was much larger then our friends who stayed down the road and paid double what we paved. Rooms a bit older but very clean. Beds nice and hard ;) Great night stay!
