One of the popular booking sites stated that there was one room left, and to be completely sure that there wouldn't be any problems due to it being a holiday weekend, I decided to call the hotel directly to reserve a room on the night before,...

This property is the very definition of Tired. Enjoy the mildew smell of the lobby and hallways between the front desk and the indoor pool. Fortunately the rooms are clean and scentless and smokefree. The beds may be original to the property. The layout is terrible and cavelike. Pluses: Cheap. Front desk staff is super helpful and very friendly. Location... More

great hotel to stay at. Very convenient. Employees are wonderful to work with and were very helpful. Clean rooms, nice breakfast set up (altho trying to find the breakfast area from the 4th floor elevator to the 2nd floor dining area was a bit confusing but manageable!)

My husband and I booked two rooms for a little family get away with our daughter and her family the last weekend of May.

We were there for a basketball tournament and will never return. The front lobby floor was filthy! Our room was in the back on bottom floor and the door would not lock properly and the door leading to the outside was broken so anyone could enter the building at anytime. Needed some more pillows and called the desk and was... More

Nice place to stay,rooms are clean and the staff is very nice.If you want quieter rooms do not stay poolside.The pool is open from 9:00am-10:00pm.Try Victor's for very good food and many specials daily.We always stay here when visiting Erie.

When I booked the room at such an affordable price I was skeptical of the marketing description provided by the hotel. I was actually surprised it lived up to everything stated. Lots of free parking, easy to find, super friendly front desk staff. The room was fine, nice updated bathroom and comfortable bed. Passed nice indoor pool on way to... More
