When there are so few options...Posted Sep 3, 2014
Pros: The location is convenient, and the rooms are decent. The fact that there is WI-FI, microwave and refrigerator in the room is definitely a plus.
Cons: There could be better options with the free continental breakfast, and it could run later than 9 AM
Location: Like I wrote previously, it is close to the LIRR, ferries, supermarkets, ATMs and restaurants
We were visiting Fire Island, and there are few options on the island itself - hotels there charge $ 200 and up a night, but there is a minimum stay period - which means something like $500 in the hole. So whenever we stay out there overnight, we stay at the Red Carpet, which is located close enough to the train station and the ferries... It does have a close location to restaurants and a supermarket... and it's still better than the other options around.

One night stay.Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Size of the room.
The room was nice and big, but the bathroom floor was sticky. I would stay there again, but not if I could find a place closer to where I wanted to go.

Honest/Fair ReviewPosted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: read above
Cons: read above
Location: read above.
Pillows sucked. Bed was average. Guy at front desk was nice. No tissues in the room. One small garbage can in the room. Small bathroom, shower could have been cleaner but it was okay - I'm not picky - no woman would like it. Room had a smell but not awful. One light bulb out. Sketchy area but safe enough. Located next to a ton of food/bars/shopping, etc. No frills, average stay.

Old hotel; needs much repair; overpriced.Posted Oct 14, 2013
First room frig did not work at all. TV remote did not work. You had to control TV by manually working switches on back of set. Second room TV remote only occasionally worked. Had to turn off the set by unplugging. Carpets were old and dirty. Overall, the motel suffered from differed maintenance. It was a mistake booking through Expedia. Bad cancelation policy for this particular motel, and Expedia price was more expensive than booking directly with motel. Expedia advertised the motel as providing a "full breakfast". In reality it was only less-than-minimum continental breakfast: no fruit, and no hot selections. Night clerk was grouchy, and unwilling to address problems. Daytime staff was only slightly better. The motel was formerly a Econo Lodge; went independent two years ago.

Barely the BasicsPosted Oct 5, 2013
Pros: I truly did not like anything about the hotel. A very disappointing experience.
Cons: All those things mentioned above.
Location: As stated above.
This "inn" is a very old building in a strange location behind a gas station/7-11. The reception area is dated and sparse, the staff stiff and abrupt. The breakfast area consists of 3 small round tables and 6 old, dilapidated chairs that are stained and have a distinct "stale" odor. The "continental breakfast" consists of a dozen donuts and another 1/2 dozen pastries in a plastic display case, alongside a cereal dispenser containing Raisin Bran and Fruit loops. Coffee and juice are from automated dispensers. The rooms themselves are clean but shabby. The bed linens had tears in them, the mattresses were literally "lumpy", and the towels were stiff and rough. The desk chair was covered in paint stains, the bathroom sink drain was clogged, and the shower floor was dirty. There was a single hanger in the room, no iron or ironing board, no hair dryer, no coffee maker...truly a room with the fewest amenities I've seen in many, many years. For the price, you would expect at least the quality of a Holiday Inn Express or Best Western. Very disappointing.

If there are no other options....Posted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked a last minute trip to Fire Island so were very limited on options to stay. Most all hotels on the Island were a 2 or 3 night min, and between $400-800 per night. This Inn did not have restrictions, and was much cheaper. However, it was pretty old and although just being cleaned, it was dirty with stains and burn holes on bed, and everything smelled of smoke (it was a non-smoking room). I wouldnt suggest for a family stay, or a romantic night. But if you are with a friend for a quick night sleep, and not planning to hang in the room, I guess this place would work.
