Having visited Erie a number of times, we've stayed in most of $100-$150 hotels here. For $60+, I think the Red Roof Inn is a real value. It's clean, easy to get to, and as quiet as any other hotel near I90 if you stay in the back.

As per red roofs, it was clean, comfortable, free wifi and no pet charge. Check in and personnel were great. An added bonus was free breakfast at McDonald's next door! Easy access to highway, food. The weather was nasty (snow and ice) but the property was plowed nicely

I stayed here with my family while my father was in the hospital. We stayed in the pet friendly section. The hotel did not smell of any pet odors but you could tell that it allowed smoking once upon a time. The rooms were clean, could use a little updating, and the bathrooms were also clean. The hotel offers free... More

We always stop at Red roof inn in Erie when we travel from Vermont to Iowa. They have great rates, super clean rooms, and friendly staff.

Every hotel is different and they range in stars based on room amenities, room size, hotel location, and hotel features. The one factor that we ask all hotels to make constant is that the hotel should be kept clean no matter how nice or dismal the room is outfitted. This is the reason why I gave my rating based on...

However, I do hope that... More

We needed a place to stop on our Thanksgiving trip and picked this place. I agree with those who say this is a nicer Red Roof Inn than typical. The beds were comfortable and I thought the desk setup was nice, although we didn't use it. I would stay here again if I ever found myself here. Only complaint was... More

Nice value in Erie! Got a room with 2 double beds, very clean, very quick check in. Fridge, Coffee maker and flatscreen TV in the room. No breakfast but they do give a voucher to the McDonalds across the parking lot. The only caveat is that some rooms are very close to the I90, which can be very noisy at... More

Nicely updated. I believe all hotels should do away with carpet in their rooms in favour of laminate or otherwise, and they have done just that. Check in and check out was smooth. Checkout here is noon. No pool. No breakfast. Close to restaurants and shopping. Affordable. Very "no frills," but everything was clean and comfortable. We had a fridge... More
