    GOOD VALUE FOR PRICE

    from

    very good value for the price. there is a shopping center within walking distance.there is free shuttle service to and from airport and cruise ship terminals

    CSI Crime Scene could film from this motel

    from

    This motel looked like a room from the CSI Crime Scene Show. First of all 32 of us booked this room from the website and the website didn't tell us that this motel should be shut down. After checking in we discovered the following:

    1. Doors to rooms broken down

    2. Syringes laying in the hallways and rooms

    3. Soiled linens

    I could list more but just wanted to give the highlights. Needless to say our group contacted Lodging immediately and they were able to refund our group. The hotel manager at first wasn't cooperative until I asked the people in the lobby waiting to check in if they would like to take a tour of a CSI Crime Scene room, well the manager got us out of there real quick like. I can't believe that Ft. Lauderdale hasn't closed this motel down.

    Shameful

    from

    What a dump!! My wife and I have been doing quite a bit of traveling the past few years and this was far and away the worst place we have ever stayed. The check in process was very slow and conducted by people who had absolutely no people skills. The room appeared to be clean, but was poorly maintained. The light fixtures were just about to fall off the walls, numerous patches in the drywall were clearly visible and TV reception was poor. The bathroom door was damaged but not properly repaired, just painted over. The result was a door that would not stay closed unless one was willing to stand or sit with a foot against the door. Day two was no better. After a long day of shopping and sightseeing, we were unable to get in our room, the electronic key would not work. Unfortunately, that meant another trip to the front desk. There were 10-12 people in line already, many with the same problem I had, and only 1 slow, uncaring person to help us. Could not wait to leave.

    Horrible business practices ever!!

    from

    I will never refer nor visit a Red Carpet Inn anywhere in the United States. During my mothers visit to the state of Florida, I reserved her a room at Red Carpet Inn assuming they would be a suitable choice for her.

    At the time of check-in, my mother paid her room rate (which normally covers a room key) signed the necessary paperwork and waited for the room key. At that point, she was told that it would require a $10 deposit to recieve this key. What exactly was the room fee for, if you do not get a key???????

    Secondly, the amenities of the room was listed as having cable TV - when she got to her room, the remote control had been removed. She called the front desk, and again was told that it would take a $10 deposit for the remote. Why list the TV as an amenitie, when you have to pay for it?????????

    None of these extra charges where listed anywhere in the office, nor were these charges explained prior to her paying for the room.

    Red Carpet Inn has the worst business practices I have ever seen - not to mention the violation of policy notification laws.

    Not as bad as the reviews

    from

    The hotel is not as bad as the reviews but it is no luxury hotel either. The room was clean and well appointed. Clean and new tile, sink and tub with no odor. A newspaper was there in the morning as well as the shuttle van to the airport. The negatives were the shuttle stops at 10pm and the counter help is unfriendly. The hotel needs landscape and upkeep help but not bad but I recommend a different hotel for the price.

    Uugh

    from

    My stay in this pit lasted about 10 minutes after I found that my pillow was covered in hair from the previous occupant. Generally pretty disgusting! On a positive note they did refund my money.

    Run away fast as you can

    from

    This place is a total dump. Do not stay there. It is filthy. We stayed there one night before our cruise and will never stay again. I took a shower and brown water came out of the faucet after a few minutes. I freaked. I felt very unsafe.

    Avoid at all costs

    from

    The worst hotel I have ever stayed at anywhere in the world. The reception was cold, bordering on hostile, the room dirty, the overall vibe of the place edgy and threatening. I should have left when I was asked to sign the waiver for theft or 'any personal injury' on the premises. Half a star to the cheery shuttle driver who brought me from the airport, singing Temptations songs all the way - deducted for not warning me what I was getting into.

    Dirty and sleezy

    from

    We checked into the Red Carpet Inn in February 2001. We have stopped at a Visitor's Centre and had received a coupon book. The price for the Inn was too good to be true. The run-down room we checked into had not been cleaned since the last prostitue and her customer had used it. We checked out right away.

    Watch Out!

    from

    Watch Out !Stayed at this dirty run down motel in a crime infested area for 2 nights while visiting the FLL boat show. Paid in full for my stay at the time of booking with a company called Lodging. they billed my credit card for all charges. After I checked out of the hotel, the hotel billed my card again. Extremely poor customer service and no one seems to want to rectify. I believe this may be a scam that they run on a regular basis.Watch Out!

    Paul's real motorcycles are in various stages of restoration back in Alberta and Ontario and he rides one of the ubiquitous scooters popular in the FtL area. It has been over 20 years since Paul and I rode together, I am sure we made quite the pair, him on his 100 cc scooter, myself on the 2300 cc Rocket. I did go against all of my own safety policies and rode sans helmet and leathers. You can give me **** when ...

    ... We all breathed a sigh of relief as we made our way back to the Avis drop off point, originally Heather and Tim were going to take the car as they had an extra 6 hours to wait for their plane but after the freeway fiasco and the fact that they wouldn't have Jane and google maps to help them they decided they'd rather hang around the airport. We said our goodbyes as they are heading off to LA to spend the week staying with Tims uncle and Rodd and I headed upstairs ...
