Location - conveniently located near Splash Lagoon (practically across the street), near Target, Walmart and lots of restaurants, and a short drive to Millcreek Mall.
Room - large and clean. We had a king sized bed with updated, comfy linens (even a post-it note that said the duvet covers had been cleaned!), a couch with a flat screen TV, desk and chair, and a kitchenette with sink, microwave, fridge and coffeemaker. The bathroom was large too. It had ample counter space and the largest tub I've seen in a long time (which had the jacuzzi jet sprays in working condition too!). Took almost a half hour to fill the tub to a level just above the jets.
Amenities - a nice but small pool. Gym seemed nice too. But didn't get to use either.
Staff - SUPER friendly and eager to help. You can't beat this kind of hospitality. Even the breakfast staff came by every 5 min to clear the plates.
Breakfast - Free. There's cereal, oatmeal, toast, waffles, eggs, sausages, and yogurt. Not sure if the eggs were real though. Decent fare. Liked how the coffee urns were separated by decaf, regular and bold as my husband and I both like our coffee strong.
Now here's my complaint. We had room 402. High up and facing the I-90. I couldn't sleep due to the highway traffic, especially the heavy rumblings of passing trucks. However, the hotel did provide a pair of comfortable ear plugs and once I popped those in, I was fine. So I recommend getting an odd numbered room (on the other side where you don't face the highway) OR a lower level room so you're at least beneath the highway and it's not as loud.
To the hotel: ear plugs are a nice touch. You should really have 2 pairs available in each room, not just 1 if you know there's at least 1 person staying in the room.
Ask for an odd numbered room (that doesn't face the I-90 highway) or a lower level so you're...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the Hampton Inn Erie South. I'm glad your stay was enjoyable. We do understand that the rooms located on the highway side of the hotel are noisy and hope to have this problem resolved in the future. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.
