Basement floor drain

Recently discovered a floor drain in the basement that was covered by a carpet by the previous owners. It is getting really stinky and making the basement a no go zone. I need some ideas on how to deal with this. I have tried flushing the drain out with a hose pipe but it still stinks. I am thinking of capping the drain off, what is the best method?

You might have a partially clogged drain that is allowing backup to come to that drain.

Reason being that usually a good cleaning with a hose usually does the trick, most times.

You can cap it off with a twist-in plug so that it is not permanent; might need it if the basement ever floods.
