Hotel smelled skunky when you walked in. Owner not pleasant but did take us to our room to make sure it was clean. It had mold throughout the carpeting, ceiling partially caving in, bathroom was deplorable. Did not look in bed, but bedspread was filthy!! Non smoking room reeked of smoke and body odor. We did not stay the night!!!...

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 Very outdated, in need of repair, but it had been cleaned.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....
