The Red Carpet Inn in Albany, New York is a ideal place to unwind, whether you are visting Albany for business or pleasure. Just outside of downtown, with a nice view of the Empire State Plaza, yet only 2 blocks from highway I-90 at Exit 6. Conveniently located 2 miles from downtown Albany, Empire State Plaza, and the Times Union Center. Area malls, universities and state offices are within a few minutes drive. Albany Memorial Hospital is adjacent to the hotel, and the Albany Medical Center Hospital and College, is approximately 3 miles away. Albany Airport is 4 miles north on Albany Shaker Road, the corner cross street. Add in plenty of open, green space with an outdoor picnic area, gazebo, and fountain, and you have all the convenience of a downtown location without the clutter. The hotel has a splendid view of the downtown Albany and surrounding areas. Free wireless high speed interent access is available. Mr. Subb, I Love NY Pizza, The Lighthouse Tavern, and Ta-Ke Japanese Steakhouse are all walking distance.

Gross

I understand you get what you pay for but oh my was this a disgusting place. There was hair all over (and not just hair from your head). There was candy stuck to the floor, the room stunk and was filthy. The sheets were not cleaned. Just awful. From here on out I will never book a room unless it's at Marriott or Hampton!

No good

The staff was rude and un helpful. The room was not clean. It had an ungodly odor. I asked to change rooms and met resistence. The amenities were poor and the bed matress had a sheet over it. Not ok

Old but clean and comfortable

The facility seems a bit old but the room was clean, the shower and linens were clean, heat and cooling worked well. I'm not a fussy person so the value was appreciated. I would recommend this to a non-fussy friend but not to someone that is finicky.

Clean and Comfortable

We were only in town one night and just needed a place to sleep until we could drive home in the morning. I normally won't stay in this type of hotel, but for this situation it was not my choice. The room was better than I expected for the price, very clean. The beds were really comfortable. I always do thorough bedbug checks and I was relieved to find no sign of them. The only thing I didn't like was the mattress was covered with a flat sheet instead of a fitted sheet which was a pain to keep in place. Other than that I'd say it was a great value.

Horrible!

Checked in ..went to our room and checked right back out! Heater was falling off the wall, outdated beds, tv and the room smelled horrible! The worst part, a man smoking pot in his doorway 2 doors down! Very unsafe neighborhood..I left as quick as I could! I was given a full refund.

You Get What You Pay for,

This room was Ok, its nothing to write home about, and not the worst place in Albany. We only stayed there 1 night and i found the beds a little stiff for my liking, but that is probably becuase i own a double pillowtop matress at home :), there wasn't any type of breakfast, just coffee, which stunk becuase I dont drink coffee. Would I stay here again? Maybe, if the price was right, and i was stuck, yeah, if there was another place open around the same price I would try the other place. guess it depends on the person really.

Good Value, Clean Room, Friendly Staff

The room and bathroom were very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was no breakfast in the morning, only some burnt tasting coffee. But threre is a Stewarts across the street. (Stewarts is a local convenient store & has good coffee and some decent breakfast choices) Overall, I was very pleased with the room and the price. I recommend this hotel as a great choice for an inexpensive, clean overnight.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Take right out of the hotel parking lot. A short drive or walk, you will find a mini mall with a pub called Ship something. The food was good and the staff was friendly. Nice atmosphere.
