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...

Booked it late and still had a good rate. Checkin was friendly. Rooms are large and clean. I missed breakfast so that is minor. Hotel looks nice with the blue outside. Quiet hotel. Easy acces to restaurants. We stayed between Niagara and on our way to Boston.

A typical motel as you find it on the fringes of many U.S. and Canadian cities, practical and not too expensive. Nothing special in either a positive or a negative way, everything just worked. 24/7 reception, no breakfast, but free coffee in the morning. Not quite close to the city center, but still barely in walking distance.

Have been staying at this hotel for four years and it is great as we enjoy going to Saratoga Race track and this hotel is convenient. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Marty is the best and always welcomes you back and goes above and beyond to help with any of your needs or request. We recommend this hotel...

It was highly acceptable for what we needed. Just a place to sleep for a couple of nights while a family member was in the hospital recovering from surgery. If a place to sleep is all you need, you will be very happy with this particular Red Carpet Inn.

Had to stop in Albany for the nite because of a snowstorm, had to catch my bus back at 9:30 in the morning, couldn't find a single taxi in time, at 9:00 the owner graciously offered to take me to the depot, even refused 20$ i offered him, WOW made my day and saved my trip! Thanks!

I picked Red Carpet Inn for two reasons. First, it only cost $55 and taxes, and second, it seemed to be close to the downtown. After my stay, I still like the price, but am unsure about this location. Looking at the map, it seems easy to get there after one gets off I-90. I do not know why it...

Looking for a motel, stumbled onto the Red Carpet. Looked clean and presentable and the price was very reasonable. The rooms are clean but not spotless. Amenities are basic but as can be expected for the price. Overall, an okay place for a simple night's sleep.
