I've been to the Red Carpet Inn about ten times in the last half year or so. It's clean, it's quiet and off the beaten track. As of now, in 2014 you can't find much around the hundred dollar mark. If you want clean sheets, a bath you can soak in without worry, and a simple place to crash for the night, I recommend it.
The TV's are modern widescreen 32", every room I've been in has one. The wi-fi is variable from 100-1200kbs but works. There's a mini fridge, microwave and usually an electric frying pan and coffee maker.
I've tried a few other places and if you're on a budget and don't want to deal with crackheads and partiers I think this is the best bet.
Yes, it's a little run down, I don't use the furniture and I doubt they steam clean the carpet every day but it is vaccuumed and you get what you pay for. In this case, I think you get a bit more than when you get elsewhere.
The staff speak fluent English, are friendly and sometimes give you deals. I've never had to call them but all that I've encountered is what you'd expect. Normal service.
So bottom line. I doubt there's a better place for this budget range than here if you just need some peace and quiet for a night or two. Possibly there is but I haven't found it yet.
I suppose I'll just add that there were two times that they didn't have smoking rooms available for me and I had to go elsewhere. I'll just say that those two 'elsewhere' times were an eye opener. That's why I always come back to the Red Carpet Inn.
