The weekend started out bad when the hotel couldn't find my Priceline reservation. The woman at the front desk was unsympathetic about the problem and initially claimed that the hotel was completely booked and we would not be able to stay at all. Then when she realized I was not leaving, she finally checked and discovered there were openings. As... More

Upon arrival the Parkin garage was terribly filthy and when we headed to the entrance group of people who had the whole bottom lobby filled with smoke. When we got to the desk, the desk clerk didn't even acknowledge us and was too busy talking on her cellphone. Had to wait 10 mins for her to finish her conversation and... More

thid is an older hotel whose glory days are behind her. Great location in downtown Erie, Rooms were quieter that I had anticipated, but the furniture and bed were a bit outdated. staff was very good and helpful. The continental breakfast was not good at all. Still a good hotel that needs some TLC.

I stayed at the Avalon a few years ago and I had returned to Erie and stayed again and was very happy with the stay. They have renovated the guest rooms, which are rather spacious, earth tones. I asked to have a refrigerator and was not even charged. Lobby is very spacious with several sofas. Free parking and wi-fi. Nice... More

I haven't stayed here for many years and was extremely disappointed in the condition of hotel and untrained staff . Was there for an event in town with others (3 rooms total) and was surprised at how unprepared they were for us given the fact that this event was planned for several months! Hotel was not properly cleaned. Key cards... More

Stayed one night on a wine package and found that they sold us a general admission and not a VIP package. When asked they said I did not purchase the vip package even though there website said that vip ticket came with the stay. The elevators were not working well, no stairwell access from lobby so you couldn't take steps,... More

The management says this is a luxurious hotel, which seems a misrepresentation. Nothing here is first rate. Thin tiny scratchy towels, ancient tv and blankets, no hangers, safe did not work, door had pry bar marks, no do not disturb sign, limited toiletries, drains clogged, heater so noisy we had turn it off to sleep, complimentary breakfast was meager, cold...

My room was clean, spacious, and freezing, when I checked in and it took time to warm up. The furnishings are very old. The front desk staff was pleasant but did not try to help when questioned about the need to replenish anything in the breakfast area. Nice variety for breakfast if you get there early. Housekeeping pulled the covers... More

They served some expired food in the breakfast. The stuff unhelpful, nervous, careless and couldn't see any smiling. No privacy. You can hear everything in the room next you when they talk. I couldn't say any better to describe it.
