“Sticky finger staff!”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Stayed here for one night after sight seeing in NYC. Rooms are small and have a potent odor and are def outdated! Upon leaving my husband and I thought that one another did the infamous last sweep of the room. I left behind a pair of nice earrings, which I took off cause the bed and pillow were so hard it was hurting, and when I noticed I called immediately. But of course they said they found no earrings. They wouldn't even amuse me with pulling out the bedside table and checking. So pretty sure a cleaning person there has sticky fingers. Also the lady in which I spoke with hung up on me before I could finish my sentence. Never ever again will I stay there or a red carpet inn!

This dump should not even get a quarter star, got the the hotel asked the hotel clerk to see the room before getting a room, he said sure no problem, swipe my credit card and took copy of my Driver License, he said he was busy handed me the swipe card I took a look and didn't like it , it smelled of cigarettes, the TV was from the 50's and was bolted down, I saw and Ironing board and was amazed that it was bolted down also., the straw that broke the camel back was the roach on the pillow, I got my stuff and when down to the clerk and he refused to credit my credit card and give me back my ID, he told me that it doesnt matter he will charge my CC,

I told him we will se about that,

Stay here at you own risk,

If your looking for an hotel to go to NYC, it is not a good choice because its ok to get to NYC by bus but still have to walk at least 10-15 just to get to the bus station and at night its like 50$ in taxi from down town so I would recommed that you paid that 50$ extra and get a hotel in NYC. Whats good about it is the parking is included so if you get something in NYC make sure to check if there is parking and if so, how much, because it can get expensive.

Close to both the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels, although toll is $12 to get to Manhattan. On a busy road but we had a second floor room at the back and it was quiet. Room was dated but clean. Beds were firm and comfortable. Had a micro/fridge and hairdryer that came in handy. Shower worked great. No tissue though so bring your own. Continental breakfast was kind of a joke. The breakfast area consists of 2 tables in the lobby. There were 2 kinds of cereal, muffins and packaged pastries, Tang juice, milk, a water dispenser and a coffee machine. Nothing hot and nothing fancy but clean. Parking was free and ample. We would stay again if we were going back to NYC. Good value for theprice.

I have booked hotel for our senior person near by his co worker place. After I came to know that is worst place to stay, Rooms are stinks. While making booking over phone the staffs are rude. If we look cheapest options than quality of room other facility like pillow,bathroom are very poor. Touristor / Business advisor are try to avoid Red carpet Inn.

Room Tip: Book Esa even if it is far away,That is idle way.Only thing transportation charges need to bear.

We were flying out of Newark the next day and were looking for a cheap place to stay close to Manhattan. This is quite perfect for you, if you are in the same situation.
Sure, the rooms are not great, a bit smelly, quite cold (had to run the heating all night, the bathroom could have been as a fridge anyway) and even the free internet was shaky at times (another reason we booked)
The location is convenient though (only if you have a rental car of course), close to Manhattan and in downtown Hoboken there's actually stuff going on too.
So yea, not a great place. But for this price I don't think you can get any better.
