We are a European couple (British and German) and stayed at the Red Carpet Inn during the Albany leg of our New England Road. The rooms are big enough, they seem mostly clean. The staff have no interest in doing anything for you other than take your credit card details and give you your door key. For the price paid,... More

Was a non smoking room. That had been smoked in. When we unpacked our suitcase at home the next day they wreaked of cigarette smoke. The evening clerk said no extra pillows if you didn't order them when making reservation. Didn't know I needed to ask if a king size bed for two people only had 3 pillows when I... More

Luckily we had our own sheets in our vehicle and I went out to retrieve them. On my way out two young females propositioned me for sex in there room at the... More

A quick overnight stay on way to Boston. Hotel is old & out dated but not filthy. Bed was creaky & uncomfortable but bedding clean. Towels were like loofahs. I got what I paid for (used coupon out of Welcome Center booklet) & have no complaints. It was easy off & on the I90.

For a very reasonable rate, we got a hotel that was conveniently located right off the expressway, neat, clean and well-maintained. The house staff was courteous and knowledgeable. In addition, there is a convenience store located just steps away from the hotel. All in all, a very good value.

A good night's rest. Staff was easy to work with. Room very clean and spacious. Ac and plumbing all worked as they should. No fancy amenities but has room fridge, and on sight laundry facilities. Seems well priced and very accommodating.

Check in was pleasant but my room was like something out of a horror movie. Filth and debris covered every corner where the wall met the floor. There was a hole in the mattress filled with trash. There was also what I assume to be a urine stain on a comforter. I will never pay under $100 for a hotel... More
