Good place to sleep

It was, generally speaking, very good value for money. I needed a place to sleep before and after the Irishfest. Since I was going to spend almost all my time at the festival, I didn't need a lot of frills when it came to the hotel, as long as it was clean and safe, and the Red Carpet was excellent in that respect. I just wish they'd made the beds when they came in to switch the towels

Great Value

We found the room to be nicely furnished. We were surprised to find a King sized four poster bed. The upholstered bench was wonderful for holding open suitcases. The traditional decor was tasteful. The bathroom had a few cosmetic issues but everything was clean and in good working order. Although the room had a refrigerator and microwave, it did not have a coffee pot but coffee was available in the lobby (as well as doughnuts in the morning). Very nice for the price!

Red Carpet Inn & Suites

The staff was very nice and friendly, but there was no breakfast or food options. There wasnt even a coffee pot in the room! The location was decent, close to other hotels as well. The room was clean. The elevator was frightening and not something I ever want to experience again. I would not recommend this to a friend under any circumstance!

No pleased at all

For the price, I would have expected more. The 24 hour coffee service was horrible. The wireless internet connection was not working at all. There was no HBO, in fact when you surfed the channels there was a channel that said that they had not paid their bill for it. The entire hotel smelled like a smokers den. They are constructing a new hotel within feets from it, so if you are a late sleeper don't stay there because the noise will wake you up. The breakfast included coffer (horrible) and donuts. I didn't try the donuts so I can't say anything about that. I wouldn't stay there again. I have stayed at lesser price hotels for better service.

Satisfactory.

For a lower-cost hotel, the Red Carpet in Albany was satisfactory. Access was a bit confusing because of construction in a space adjoining the hotel property. Coffee and doughnuts were available in the morning. Some upgrading is needed; there were three electric switches in the bathroom only one of which did anything.

Not a good choice

The facility in this hotel shows its age. It reminds me of old dormitory with worn carpet, unmatched furniture, moldy smell, motley paint, etc. In my first morning, I was greeted by a cockroach in the bathroom. The wireless connection was spotty. It is definitely not work the money I paid for.
