We stayed at this motel for a couple of nights. It is an older property, but they have been updating all of the rooms. The location is excellent because there are several restauants just down the street and there is also a bar and grill located just across the street. We stayed two seperate nights so we had two different... More

We stayed here during a wild snowstorm. The room was big and comfy and the deck clerk was very friendly. The price was excellent and they had plowed the driveway before we woke up. The Oasis Pub was nearby for a bite to eat and some drinks. Not the best pub but any port in a storm! This is a... More

Went to this motel on our trip to Erie to install my daughter in college at Mercyhurst. Desk clerk would not let me adjust our stay after seeing the room, made me pay first. Beds like concrete, motel over flight path from Erie airport so loud even at night. No one ever in office for problems or towel-none in room,... More

Rooms are small but adequate. Shower in our room appeared to be new. Turned on a/c when we arrived to get rid of mild musty smell - smell was gone within 30 minutes. Small fridge, comfortable beds. If you want good location (around a few corners from Presque Isle State Park) and a good price, and you don't mind the... More

One of the most filthy Motels we have ever stayed at. No pride of ownership. Garbage around the front door, trash next to the vanity, peeling paint, dirty floors and much more. Avoid this place at all costs

I wanted a room that was cheap & clean. I got that. Only about a mile to Presque Isle, which is HUGE in my book. I just needed a bed, shower, AC and a TV, I got that. The AC unit was in the window which had drapes on it, so getting cold air into the room was tough at... More

This was our first trip to Erie PA/Presque Isle and I can guarantee that it will be a yearly destination for us! We would certainly stay at the Riviera Motel again. I do not care about decor, matching bed spreads and curtains....I care about the cleanliness of the room, the bed sheets, etc. and the Riviera was clean. It is... More

We go to this place every year, twice a year and we love it! It's quaint and has a neat 1970's retro feel to it. The staff there is very nice and they will help you as much as they can. It's also a nice place to meet some new people! We met some of our good friends there! If... More

If you want the feel of a cheap 1960s motel, the Riviera Motel is what you'll get...at a price that's not so cheap. Since it rained a good deal of our trip, we spent much more time in the motel than we had planned. And that was not a good thing. This was our yearly multiple-family vacation to Erie and... More
