My main concern is cleanliness. The room was clean. Very outdated, in need of repair, but it had been cleaned. The place had an Indian food odor to it. The "continental breakfast" couldn't have been lamer. The couple running the place was nice. But I don't really feel the few bucks we saved staying at this motel was worth it.

No complaints, the owners went out of their way to get us anything we needed. It is definitely an older hotel, the outside is not updated at all, but it was clean & that was the main thing. Within walking distance to Knoxville Speedway and that is what we were looking for. Will be back again next year !!!

When you first look at the exterior of the Red Carpet Motel, your initial thought may be, “U-h-h, no!” The place doesn’t have what a realtor would call “curb appeal”. However, once inside, it is a very nice, very clean establishment, and one of the best values I’ve ever encountered. (And the owner is very accommodating.) First of all, ignore...

I reserved a room here based on trip advisor reviews that said it was clean. It was NOT clean. The lobby smelled bad. When we entered the room, we could see that the carpet was not vacuumed. The sheets had stains and hair. The toilet had a spot of dried urine. I asked for a refund. The owner was friendly....

I took a chance and stayed at this family run motel. Less expensive than Super 8 / Motel 6 so you never know. Pleasantly surprised by the room's cleanliness and EXCELLENT bed. Comfortable, firm, good support for the back. Small room just for the night but very good internet connection, clean bathroom, good TV reception, working remote, all the basics....

Very close to the race track, you could walk if driving is not an option :) staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are cool and comfortable, you will not find nicer people that are willing to help in any fashion.
