We stayed 2 nights here. We were in a renovated king suite. Our room was huge and clean. The pull out couch was broken but still usable. Also the fridge did not work but there was a small beverage fridge in the room also that did. We had no issues and the guy on overnights(?) at front desk was awesome.... More

Upon check in customer service was pleasant and accommodating! The room is clean, the bathroom is clean, does not have flat screen TV's however that does not bother me. The location is great for downtown Erie. You can walk many places near by! Free breakfast, juices, cereal, coffee, hot tea, Belgian waffles, yogurt & pastries! I believe for the price... More

This was by far THE WORST hotel stay I have ever experienced. Upon entering our FIRST room (non renovated) we experienced cobwebs in the corners, big moths flying around the room, the windows opened all the way so that one could actually access the roof which would explain why there were dirty diapers and beer bottles out the window of...

I recently stayed at the Avalon while in town for a wedding. I went to college in Erie and people often made fun of the Avalon and talked about how bad it was. Honestly, it's not that bad. It's definitely not the best hotel I've stayed at, but I wasn't in my room much at all so I didn't mind.... More

I have stayed here on several occasions over the years due to the location. The hotel is near many bar locations so you need to expect that there are people that will stay there ready to party. I only had one out of numerous times where the noise from others was intolerable. I talked to management and they took care... More

This hotel was offered as the hotel of choice for a family wedding in Erie. The hotel staff was very nice, but the accommodations were less than desirable. When we checked in, we were sent to our room ( which was said to be ready) to find the bed unmade/uncleaned. We had to switch to a different room--which was on... More

When I arrived. I clearly went to the front desk to check in after circling the building to find a parking spot I felt safe to do so in. The woman at the front desk was ok.she was a bit rude. When I told her I had a reservation she said I hope so. I in return said I absolutely... More

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. Some rooms are more newly renovated than others. Parking is underground, and is included. If you are in Erie for events that are located downtown, this is the best place to stay, as most everything is within walking distance. The Warner Theater, Jerry Uht Ballpark, The Erie Insurance Arena, etc. In... More

We had a large group staying at this hotel for a recent wedding. I would not recommend this hotel in its current state of management. 1.) The line to check in was a long wait due to only 2 computers and a third woman trying to mircomanage the 2 staff members able to utilize the computers. 2.) The rooms were... More

Absolutely Beautiful Wedding! It was everything I imagined! Wedding was outside in the court yard. Erica was the best!!! I offered to come in and help set up and do center pieces and was told NO. Food was great!! Our suite was huge and clean beside the bathroom mold. One shower never got hot water but the other shower in... More
