Nice room with Old Gold design! It feels like 1960's in this hotel. I wish I should stay more days! You'd love it when you stay. Best hotel in Erie area. Breakfast was nice! Wifi was speedy too. I like the wifi passcode name!

Not your modern hotel, but the room was very comfortable and had a homey feel. Internet service was good. Slept like a dream. Would've preferred a bit more variety for breakfast and an earlier start time, but it was the off-season so that might have made a difference. Looking forward to coming back when I have time to explore the... More

Recently stayed two nights at this motel. The check in was easy and the room was clean and a decent size. The décor is outdated but it was comfortable and the price was really reasonable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was included in a room off the lobby. It was very basic, cereals, pastries and some fruit.... More

We stayed one night in this quaint family run in with our family. When you drive in you immediately feel warm and fuzzy, it is your home away from home. The reception and rooms present well and the breakfast is the traditional American light breakfast of cereal, pastries and fruit. It reminds us of the old style hotels of the... More

Pleasant one-night stay. Very nice staff, room was just fine, no problems at all. I hear they have a light free breakfast but didn't try it. Overall, a good stay. (Blah blah trying to fill this out to 200 characters...)

Decided to stay in Erie and extra day so located this motel. Clean and friendly. Dont expect a large breakfast cereal, oatmeal, and danishes. Great price tho and very close to the park. Would recommend staying here.

A 1950s era place, very cozy and clean. Right on US 20 but quiet nonetheless. Great location for getting to Presque Isle, Erie, restaurants. Has a lot of old fashioned charm. Friendly staff, pleasant dining area for breakfast. Way more personality than the "chains".
