Red Carpet Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

You don't get anything for the money. poor lighting in room, Water pressure very low, have to pay for safe, no breakfast.

My stay Red Carpet Inn Nassau, was good. The location was great close to down town and great eating places. Overall I would visit Red Carpet Inn Nassau again, I would recommend it to friends.

The Red Carpet has a nice pool and newly redone rooms. Things work, and there were none of the Old Nassau unpleasantries that some hotels have (e.g. roaches or rats). There is a shopping center, one of the best in Nassau) and Starbucks right next door and you have a little kitchen in your room, or at least I did. Internet is decent with good reception at least in my room (near the front of the hotel). Like most internet in The Bahamas it was slow or went out occasionally, but i was able to get my needed work done. Red Carpet is a nice, affordable place to stay if you want to really experience the Island of New Providence rather than just going to Atlantis or Beaches or Sandals and staying on site the whole time.

We found it located a bit out of the way but the local bus stopped out front and we used it almost every day, so the location didn't matter too much. The room was very clean and large with fridge and microwave which was handy with a grocery store nextdoor. The two beds were comfortable.The bathroom had a small floor space but lots of counter space. Everyone was friendly and helpfull. A beautiful local beach was only a 5 minute walk away along with several restaurants. A bit disapointed we had to pay extra for internet and the use of the safe. We enjoyed out stay there.

Very close from paradise island. We could walk to Atlantis, about 17 minutes walking. Clean, not perfect but ok for the price. If you plan to stay there for a short stay it's a good place but for a week, I would recommand other places.

The RCI's website was filled with lovely pictures - but was not up to date. If you wanted to raise or lower the air conditioner temp, you had to call the office and have someone come to your room with the remote control. Our A/C wasn't working properly, so the manager came up and unlocked the door that made our room a suite, and turned on the air conditioner in there. that solved the problem but we realized that we had been charged for a "superior room", but only got it because of the airconditioning problem. They wouldn't let you have extra towels for the pool - you were only allowed to have the number given to the room, and had to turn in the used towels to get new ones. The restaurant/bar that was advertised (and shown on the info card in the room)no longer exists - the extent of their hospitality service was a coffee maker. the office and front door were supposed to be open until midnight, after which you needed your room key to get into the hotel- they closed at 8:00, catching guests off guard who had taken the office personnel at their word, and leaving them to yell to someone in the hotel to come let them in. The inn is located in a part of town not considered very safe, and was set back off the road, behind a bank-even taxi drivers had trouble finding it. The beds and furniture were arranged poorly (one of the beds was next to the closet, making it inaccessible unless you moved the bed or climbed over it. However, the pool was fabulous!

Not beachfront but within walking distance of Montague beach (a 1/4 mile long "locals" beach). Restaurants and stores are an easy walk away. On Jitney route. Facilites are clean with frig and microwave. Nice courtyard & pool. A good alternative to the Paradise Island tourist crowd.

Just stayed here for one night because it was just across the street from where I needed to be the next morning to board a diving boat I was staying on for the next week. Beds were fine and comfortable, safe and quite, close to bars and restaurants--few small bugs in the bathroom, but none seen anywhere else. I will stay here again next year for the night before I board the boat--would not stay here if you were looking for a hotel/resort to stay for a week though.

Hotel was fine, great for business!

When we went to check in, the rate was higher than anticipated. We asked for a breakdown for the rate and the receptionist said she did not know. I asked her for the manager, she said the manager was unavailable. I asked her to phone so that I could receive it and she said "No". I said in that case, I did not want the room. She said that we would have to pay one night cancellation fee. I said that I would not pay it because I did not feel the price was the one quoted. She told us to leave or she would call the police. Nice place, I would never go back.

Hotel is located back behind a building from the main road. The taxi driver charged us $40. US from the airport. (The return was only $32) Taxis have no meter so negotiate b/f you leave the airport. The rooms are clean but not too charming. The evening receptionist is not very friendly and seems reluctant to be of any help but, everyone else at the hotel is very nice and friendly. The young lady who runs The Barn restaurant on the premises is highly intelligent, friendly and a wonderful conversationalist. We paid for a room directly to the hotel when we arrived on a Monday b/c the Orbitz rooms were not available. The price was quite a bit. more than the Orbitz rate. This included a VIP upgrade which was a small breakfast, free local phone calls and free internet. Even if you pay for those things seperately, it is still a better value to get the Orbitz priced rate. We booked on Monday night when we arrived and then left during the week to stay in the Xzuma's. We booked a night at the end of the week so we could catch a flight the next day. The location is pretty close to Paradise Island which is about a $10. -$12.taxi fare. There is a fantastic seafood restaurant close enough to walk to called the Poop Deck. Go there and you will see lots of famous ppl have been there, too. Don't ask the taxi drivers for recommendations. Also there is a grocery store in the plaza next door but expect to pay at least twice of what you would pay in the US. Also, there is a Radio Shack and a computer store there not to mention a Starbucks and KFC.

The staff was great, we arrived a little early and they kept our bags safe until we came back from an excursion. Very friendly. It was a little out of the way and you really needed taxis for most anything you would want to do if spending an extended time here, but this maybe true to most island hotels.

We chose the hotel because they indicated it was close to the airport, which it was not. It was actually all the way on the other side of the island. The staff was very nice and the room was fairly decent. Beds were not all the comfortable, but we only stayed one night. It was close to a shopping area and a couple of good restaurants. It was also less expensive than other places we checked. Not a place I would want to spend more than one night though. It did appear to have a nice pool area, although we did not use it. Also the security was good.

Another great stay at this Hotel. The Hotel is quiet and clean and the staff are freindly and helpful. The WIFI worked very well and overall I was very happy with my stay. I would recomend this hotel and will be staying there again when I return later in the year.

We found the Red Carpet Inn to be clean and well managed. We would definitely return. The only negative for us was the distance to downtown Nassau. You can ride the local buses to reach the hotel but they stop running about 6:00 or 7:00 PM. The Harbour Bay Shopping Center which is right next to the hotel is a great place. This is not a luxury property but the price is reasonable and it is value for the price. Would recommend this to people who are looking for a good bargain.

Hotel was very small, with limited amenities. The restaurant had limited menu, hours posted were not honored. The pool was not clean. Front desk was not available 24 hours. There was music playing loudly 24 hrs of the day. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

My stay at this hotel was fine for me and the amount of money I could afford at this time. I guess because of the price, there was no personal amennities i.e. shampoo, shower caps etc. Also, I would reccomend that the housekeeper change her mop head, or use a solution to make the room smell better. Her mop had a sour smell. I had to open the door to let the scent out. And another thing, the toilet water pressure was very low. We had to plunge the toilet to let the waste go down. I amagine it was known to manager because a plunger was in the bathroom when we arrive. Other wise everything was nice. The area was next to a shopping mall that provided meals, clothing, and a grocery store. I would stay at this hotel again.

The Red Carpet Inn is a good choice for people who prefer to spend their money on things other than a hotel. It's quiet, the staff is friendly, the room clean, and there's a full size fridge along with table/chairs in the room. This is good if you want to be able to eat some meals in the room. The furnishings, tv and towels are motel quality as is the pool. There is ample parking. The location is off a main street in downtown and next door to a strip mall that has a grocery store, liquor store, Starbucks, Subway, Pizza Hut, and Dairy Queen. It's walking distance from the Paradise Island bridge and Potter's Cay. It's not on the beach, but there are plenty of beaches to drive to on New Providence island.

The Red Carpet Inn is ok if you're alone. I wouldn't reccommend it for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. Ther were small ants in the bathroom and the toilest overflooded.
