Manassas, Virginia

Simple budget friendly hotel. Fairly clean but old and outdated inside and out. Great water pressure! No coffee pot. No clock. Small fridge. Cable. Non smoking. Quiet. Comfortable bed. Pillows were hard and lumpy. 2 minutes to Virginia Tech. Convenient location. Ample parking. Owners seemed friendly. Good place if you just need to sleep, shower and go. Nothing fancy. No...

When you first get there you might think that you pulled up to a little hole-in-the-wall but actually it's not bad. The outside could use a little more tender loving care but inside the rooms were nice and clean. The hotel managers were very nice. If you need an iron make sure that you ask for one they will give...

Harry, the owner could not have been nicer or more helpful during our stay. Hotel is clean, very quiet, simple, and close to VT. Shower and heat worked great and plenty of parking in front or back of hotel. Husband left sweatshirt in room and Harry was kind enough to mail it to us at no charge! Outstanding customer service!...

The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Harry were awesome. Very nice, helpful, and always available. The room was simple and clean. The best part about the room was the shower. The water was hot and very pressurized! Felt great!!

This was a very clean room. It was just fine to sleep in. Not a fancy room no exceptional decoration. Just one small bathroom and 2 queen beds. This room was a very good value. I felt safe. The owners were very nice. They were on site. This is a good room if you are looking for a clean safe...

Minutes after checking out, we were accused of stealing towels from the room. We told them that we did not take any towels but if they would like we can check our things again in front of them. We checked our things and had nothing. They did not allow us to check out or leave. We told them that we...

The only reason this place doesn't get 5 stars is because it's an economy motel. But as economy motels go, it's a 5 star. Real bang for your buck. Clean, courteous, convenient and comfortable! The gentleman who runs the place is gracious and quite helpful. Bring your own toiletries. We will definitely use the Blacksburg Red Carpet Inn again. We've...

This is a dated motel. Worn carpets and even some old stains on the sheets. It was clean, but believe their are better budget choices in the area having stayed many times as a Virginia tech parent. Door to outside would not properly deadbolt. On positive side,staff is very pleasant and it is close to campus.
