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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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.

Nearest room I could get to Auburn at a decent price for this booked out weekend. $55 per night and it showed! Very friendly, everything worked, including the noisy air conditioning and the shower that was loose and coming out of the wall. A huge footprint and lots of rooms, gave me everything I wanted but definitely needs some TLC.... More

for the price you cannot expect much and good because here you arent getting much. although the room had a bed and running water thats about it. and i guess thats all you need. have extremely low expectations if you choose to stay here and remember to bring your own soap.
