Red Carpet Inn and Suites Scranton

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's old and smells like cigarettes but I had a slightly new mattress with basic amenities. It's right off the highway and walkable to downtown. If you want something affordable and basic I would go for it.

old, not good managed, room not really clean. In total, never again.Hotel should be demolished and build new.

I wouldn't stay in this hotel for more than one night. Did not feel very safe.

It was old and needs updating. The location wasen't bad. Walking to food and bars and shoping.

The phone was broken. There were dead bugs throughout our room. Messed up our locks and we had to be relocated to the other side of the hotel. As I was waiting to speak with the front desk staff, he was on the phone with what seemed like a friend and I had to wait for about 10 minutes. The next day, instead of checking out quickly, the staff attempted to recharge us for the paid room. Not pleased in general.

Checked in after a flight delay due to weather around midnight. No issue with check in. Room was musky smelling, the air condition was not turned on and room smelled like wet carpet, however the carpet was dry. The Towels in the bathroom were worn out and thin; the rags I use in my work shop are better than the ones the hotel provided for bath and shower. No shampoo or conditioner in the rooms, the lamps were all unplugged but one. I would never pick this hotel again. Had I gotten there when flight was originally scheduled to arrive, I would have checked back out and found a better hotel. A sign in the lobby said continental breakfast but none was provided. Upon check out the desk clerk did not even ask how my stay was. I would recommend taking this hotel off your list.

The room was very basic and clean-ish. Besides being very close to downtown and cheap, there's not much else to recommend about it. You get what you pay for.

The motel was near Steamtown National Site and also near the Steamtown mall, both of which are lovely. We had nice meals nearby. The staff was satisfactory, but overall, we were just happy to be there. It was nothing outstanding. We just appreciated our accommodations.

I travel 100 miles every other weekend for educational purposes. Yes, the continental breakfast was not available until 7am. I need to be at my destination at that time. Served its purpose a place to sleep.

I was there for the Jazz Fest and the venue was just a 10-minute walk away so the location was good enough. The room was spacious and that's about all I can say that was good. The room smelled so bad when I opened the door that I thought something had died in there. Thank goodness for travel-size febreeze! I sprayed the whole room. The coffeepot was unusable because it was dirty. One of the toiletpaper rolls had been dropped in the toilet or something wet, allowed to dry, and then put back on the holder. This hotel severely needs an update. I think everything in there is from the '70's. Dingy. I will not be staying here again.

the hotel location is great, but not managed and kept up well at all. the hotel has a lot of potential if proper management were there.

Hotel was easy to get to. Was clean and room was fine. Not much for amenities-no food or bar and older tv but it was very convenient and comfortable. Mall nearby and various eateries.

The room itself had odor and sticky rings on the end tables, where a soda or something had been set down and the table was never wiped. I arrived late, very late and exhausted so I didn't even go back to the front office to complain. My cable did work and I didn't see any insects or rodents, so I stayed, although I did not feel safe. I made a pyramid with the furniture in the room to place against the door, since I was at ground level and could hear comings and goings of other people and cars.

This place could use a little bit of maintanance. The room was clean. The only issues that I had with the stay was that the carpet was worn around the bed. Also I had to slam the bathroom door shut in order to get it to shut properly. I think the price could have maybe been $15 to $20 cheaper. Otherwise not a bad nights stay.
