My husband and I travel extensively, from Montana to Maine, and stay in a wide variety of hotels/motels. We look for a reasonable price and good value, and realize that you get what you pay for! That said, we have certain brands we avoid based on our experiences, and Econo Lodge is one of them. However, this property got good... More

Female front desk clerk had major bad attitude on Saturday morning when I asked for more towels - she never did... More

Let me just start by saying this hotel is right across the road from Splash Lagoon, if you're unfamiliar with the area, that's the giant indoor waterpark Erie has become known for. This being said, the hotel is always packed with families and younger children. If your goal is to visit Splash Lagoon, this is a cheap alternative to the... More

If you are looking for a one night stay that is cheap and clean then this is the place. Clean rooms, good service and average breakfast. It does the job and I had no problems at all. Comfortable rooms and beds with a nice wake up call. Good place!!

Visited here March 14th-15th2015. Rates were ALOT cheaper than rooms attached to the water park. Had a terrific breakfast. Much more than we expected. Shuttle service to Splash Lagoon was great ! Well worth the savings to stay off site. Had a GREAT time !!

Great pool, sauna and hot tub. Good breakfast but long lines. Right across the street from splash lagoon and very close to many great restaurants and stores. Small rooms but they include a tv, mini fridge and coffee maker
