I made reservation approximately 5 months prior to travel dates when hotel was still Country Inn & Suites. When I received confirmation 2 weeks out from travel day there was a note saying hotel was under renovation. After looking up info on tripadvisor.com I learned that the hotel had changed to Solstice. To ease my mind I called to confirm... More

We stopped here on a trip to Canada. I usually love Country Inn and Suites, but this was not the usual experience. In fact, this is converting to another brand, Solstice by Chase Hotel Group. I've never heard of this, but I'm not impressed. The hotel is still being renovated, and there is no sign or evidence outside of the... More

Stayed overnight during a long road trip. Clerk was less than interested in our request to have two adjoining rooms to accommodate the small children we were traveling with. On the two occasions that we approached the front desk she literally ignored us, seeming to be more interested in the conversation she was having on her cell phone. When she... More

If you are looking for comfort, DO NOT CHOOSE this location. The beds are Concrete SLABS. The Shower pressure was horrific, The drain did not work. The ceiling was failing in and was molded. The Carpet was stained. There was no Parking because of equipment for construction. The window was covered by dirty plastic so there was no view.

I stayed here on a quick trip through Erie on my way east. The hotel is right off of the highway and very easy to find. The room looks like it had been renovated and the linens looked very nice and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast buffet had many offerings including cereals, eggs, bagels and sausage gravy. I was... More

Great location not too far from the highway, close to tons of restaurants and not too far from Millcreek mall and other shopping opportunities. Good value for the price. Would stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Erie, PA again.

We stayed at this property in April, on the way home from Florida. It's in a great location, right off the I75 and within a very short driving distance to any one of a number of restaurants, grocery stores & shopping. It's a clean, well run property, with friendly, helpful staff. The room was a good size, with a comfortable... More
