Red Carpet Inn Albany Downtown
Ranked #36 of 50 Hotels in Albany
Reviewed 18 November 2017

Nice older hotel but clean and convenient to downtown (1.5 - 2 miles); Took Lyft to Palace Theater downtown for less than $6. Room was clean, but mattress should be replaced with better grade. Was just basic with no padded top. I would stay here again and recommend to friends. It's not a 5 star hotel, but for about $70 on a weekend, it works just fine for a lot less than other hotels in the area. Room had small refrigerator and microwave, TV and well functioning, quiet, heating unit.

My husband and I stayed here to break up a sixteen hour drive. The placed was filthy! The carpet was so gross I wouldn't take my sneakers off. The bed sheets had several cigarette burns in them. We brought our own pillows in and I left them there. We slept as best as we could (considering the noise and partying that was going on) until 6am and checked out quickly! When I told the man at the front desk about the holes in the sheets he very cheerfully offered me a cup of coffee. No thanks!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

We were quite surprised at this motel. We were using it just as a lay over on vacation and were a little worried to be honest. When we pulled in we were nicely surprised at the neat appearance and the front desk staff was very nice and helpful in finding us a room earlier than 3PM. He also made some very good suggestions for restaurants in the area. The only complaint I would have is that the non-smoking room smelled like smoke.

Room Tip: Check the room for smell iff you are very sensitive to smoke

Dropped to stay for a night before I continue my trip. Selected by price! Well don't expect much for a couple of dollars, but u get a lot. My room was smoke free, car found place directly in front of my room. Room itself was clean, not spotless. The tube needs some new silicon around the walls , but okay.
Receptionist was friendly, the lobby offers free coffee in the morning. The room doesn't have a coffee maker which is a minus. Wifi is strong and complementary. Beds were comfy.

Recommended for one night .

A little worried with the reviews I saw, but my room was fine. It was not smoked in, and it was clean and comfortable. The staff was professional. The property is well kept. I will recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: most of the rooms have parking right in front of the door
