A little worried with the reviews I saw, but my room was fine. It was not smoked in, and it was clean and comfortable. The staff was professional. The property is well kept. I will recommend this hotel to others.

We are a European couple (British and German) and stayed at the Red Carpet Inn during the Albany leg of our New England Road. The rooms are big enough, they seem mostly clean.

A quick overnight stay on way to Boston. Hotel is old & out dated but not filthy. Bed was creaky & uncomfortable but bedding clean. Towels were like loofahs. I got what I paid for (used coupon out of Welcome Center booklet) & have no complaints. It was easy off & on the I90.
