“Fair value with no frills, at half the price of the national 3 star chains”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I got this motel at half the price of the national chains down the street and some of the name brand hotels in Oneonta. This review takes the price into account.

Two recommendations:
1. Bring bottled water. The water out of the sink had a slight brownish tint and I was not going to use that to brush my teeth.
2. If you are interested in the tow of Cooperstown, during the busy season it is recommended that you use the shuttle as parking in town is scarce and expensive. The shuttle is $2 all day and runs until 9pm, and the parking lot is a mile or so from the hotel.

The room was clean, simple, and a little dated. The sheets were clean, the foam filled pillows were OK, the mattress was a bit lumpy. The bathroom was clean. Some of the walls were painted over not too long ago, though there was some peeling in spots. The room included a mini fridge and a microwave, and a small table with two chairs. The flat panel TV was HD compatible but the cable package included very few HD channels.

The place is 2 miles from Cooperstown, and even closer to the Cooperstown shuttle. Within walking distance are a couple of restaurants that I did not go to, and there is a small plaza with a grocery store and a couple of restaurants within a half mile. Cooperstown Field of Dreams is a mile away.

The modest facility has 4 separate buildings, 3 with nothing but guest rooms (one building has 2 floors), the fourth is the office and storage building. There is an ice machine and a soda machine, both located outdoors, up against the two story building. The office conatins the minimalist complimentary breakfast, and the staff was helpful enough, though I didn't interact with them other than check in and check out.

Note: Any hotel in this area, close to the Field of Dreams, is subject to the noise of guests going in and out at all hours. Games are played at the fields all day and night as long as the weather is acceptable, so players and parents will be constantly going in and out all day and all night, and the kids can be full of energy, too. Can't blame the hotel for this.

The Red Carpet Inn is a clean, neat, simple, fairly priced motel very close to Cooperstown. We were very pleased when we arrived and decided to spend an extra night because one day in the area just wasn't enough.

The Continental breakfast is just a starter but the coffee was good and the apples fresh. For the money we were more than satisfied.

If we were in the area again.........we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to be equal, most are ground floor with parking adjacent to each room.

This motel is around 3 miles out of Cooperstown and a good priced motel for exploring the HOF. The rooms are cleand and tidy and offered a good nights rest after a long day on your feet. As motels go this was a good standard. We had to drive into town for dinner as there were not too many choices around where we were, which was OK. A good one night stay, lso offered complimentary WiFi.

The Red Carpet Inn filled the bill for our night's stay in Cooperstown. No frills, but the bed and shower were good. The TV was big and had lots of channels. A good place for our short visit that didn't break the bank.

The Red Carpet is a good upstate hotel. We came to Cooperstown for the Belgian Beer Fetival at Ommegang Brewery. The location of the hotel is great. 10 minutes south of town and what should be 10 minutes to Ommegang. It currently isnt because a truck took out the local bridge. The room is clean and neat and the bed was ok. The flat screen.was nice. The grounds were clean and we were able to hang out on the lawn and play Kan Jam. My only real complaint was that the toilet clogs very very easily. My favorite thing about the hotel is it is located very neat Council Rork Brewing Company which I highly recommend!

We were very surprised to see the condition of the room at this price point. It is a great location (with a fine seafood restaurant right across the street---Yum Yum Shack) but shoddy quality. The mattresses are poor, saggy. The toilet seat slipped to one side every time you sat down; we nearly ran out of toilet paper (they neglected to clean our room on the second day----they did give us a $45 credit for that but ........); tissues felt like sand paper----poorest quality I've ever seen. To get ice I had to walk across the parking lot (very small ice bin with no lid). I would not recommend this place. People were nice though. Too bad they can't raise the standards.

My son and I came to Cooperstown to experience Baseball Heaven! Red Carpet Suites met all our needs: large flat screen TV; free WiFi; refrigerator for our beer; clean. If you are looking for a romantic get away, then this is not your place - this is Cooperstown - the home of Baseball! I will gladly book here again and use the money I saved on some of the great attractions and restaurants in the area!
