Basic accommodations in a convenient location. If the elevators and the basement waiting area for the elevators were cleaned up it would make a positive impact on the experience. The free breakfast was basic but acceptable. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the washrooms were older but not anything that would stop a person from staying at... More

Attended the Erie Microbrew Fest and the Avalon is within a short walking distance of the venue. That is the only thing going for this hotel. The rooms are drab and questionable. There are beds, shower, toilet and tv; but nothing remarkable to say about them. It was a warm day and the a/c unit would not work. Called the... More

The Avalon has a great location right in the downtown area of Erie, P.A. but...... The hotel has supposedly been renovated but it looks old and drab. The "Superior" room we had was quite large but there was no place to sit except the taped up desk chair. There is plenty of room for a sofa or a comfortable chair... More

This is a dirty smelly place. Avoid at all costs! Wedding party arranged for guests to have the best and newly renovated rooms. Room 710 is supposedly the beautifully renovated room. As you can see from my photos at checkin the smoke detector does not have a battery or cover. The fire exit sign is missing from the back of... More

My friends and I booked a room for a bachelorette party. We checked in at 8 o'clock and received three keys to our room. None of them worked. We got them fixed and again, they did not work. So we were switched to another room that hadnt been cleaned yet. So we were transferred to another room and received 20%... More

We booked and PAID for a room in SEPTEMBER 2014 for a stay in JULY 2015. In the middle of April they called and cancelled our reservation. They said they were overbooked. It took them 7 months to figure this out!?! I think they're full of crap. So, needless to say, they weren't willing to refund me 7 months of... More

No A/C in any of the rooms was working, was told by staff to close curtains and hope room didn't get too hot....... Filthy rooms, poor service, elevator broke down twice while I was there. Continental breakfast was a joke...... Not worth the money I paid for the room.
