Owner was incredibly rude and abusive. First he tried to add $35 to the price for my 2nd night because of Spring Football game next day. Room filthy, non-smoking but strong cigarette odor. He accused me of allowing guests to shower in my room (my son and his friend were in the room a grand total of 2 minutes) and...

My fiancé and I decided to stay here a couple weeks ago. He's a pipeliner and we have our dog with us and it was our cheapest option and it showed. They were very rude when we asked for towels. Also they was loud banging around 12am to the room beside of us. My fiancé had to wake up early...

The male owner is very hateful towards women. And the female owner is just as bad to everyone. You don't get towels. And even though they say minimum 2 people in the room they lie and will swap your rate if you bring 2 people in your room. My wife came to visit and while I was there my rate...

This was the nastiest hotel I have ever stayed in in my entire life! We were evacuees from Savannah from hurricane Matthew. This was the only hotel we could find available. The first room we had was covered in roaches! The second room we had reeked of cigarette smoke which was "non smoking". The third room was better but still...

when I first got there the manager, a Mr. Patel seemed like a nice enough person. I had a reservation for two nights and had to cancel the second night because of a family probem at home. He cancelled it and issued a refund to my credit card. The motel is far below average, but at least it was a...

The location is the only good thing about the Red Carpet Inn. We booked this in conjunction with a concert at Auburn stadium. All rooms for 30 miles around were already taken so we settled on this one. The owners were very disorganized and rude. They had me wait for 20 minutes only to tell me my room wouldn't be...

We stayed here after Kenny Chesney show. My girlfriend booked 2 rooms for our group. Hotel availability in Auburn was non existent. So we were grateful to find a room somewhere. This is no frills hotel. I wouldn't want to stay for more than a night. However,It was clean and it was bug free.

My friend and I were worried. This was the only hotel we could find in a 30mi radius for a concert. We were worried about the reviews but we actually found the hotel to be decent. Our room had fresh carpet and paint. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioner didn't keep us up all night like most hotels....

The husband and wife couple that manages the place were very nice, but the hotel made me feel uncomfortable. There were people outside my room talking all hours of the night. It boasted free wifi, but never worked nor did he telephone in my room. I would NOT stay there again.
