“Still Not Great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2005

Be careful when driving into parking lot because large pot holes could swallow small vehicle. Greated by friendly staff and comfortable lobby. Our room had a very large whirlpool tub. Unfortunately the tub and jets had mold on it. The sink had a blob of toothpaste with numerous black hairs. Called the front desk and the bathroom was promptly cleaned. Convenient location and friendly staff.

I stayed here earlier this month. I had a king bed, which was pretty comfortable. And, the front desk staff was very friendly and courteous. But my room smelled pretty stale, and I could get rid of the odor only by opening the window. That let in a lot of road noise, as the hotel is hard by I-90 (as is practically every hotel in Erie). Also, the bathroom wasn't as clean as it should be - I found a couple of stray hairs in the shower soap dish. The hotel is undergoing renovation - hope it helps, as I might otherwise be inclined to look for another place next time I pass through Erie.

Recently stayed at the HAmpton Inn Erie South with a bus tour, the rooms were clean and very comfortable, the breakfast was good and offered alot of choice unlike other hotels. Coffee is available all day I did not have any dealings with the Hotel Staff so I have no idea how friendly they were
The only problem I can think of that is negative is that you cannot really walk anyway unless you want to get run over. You can not walk to any restaraunts so if you are on a bus tour make sure you eat before going back to the hotel or you can order good from local restaurants.

I stayed here a month ago. It was very clean. It was right across the street from Splash Lagoon. It is down the street from Millcreek Mall. The breakfast was decent (nothing spectacular) few donuts, plain bagels, english muffins, 3 different brands of cereal, coffee, tea bags, hot chocolate mix, orange juice, apple juice, and some muffins.

Our room had a king-size bed and sofa bed with a jacuzzi tube. The tube was very huge (but kind of loud). The bathroom had a few areas that could of been cleaner. But it was still very nice and the staff was courteous and helpful.

Overall a nice stay for the family.

This is a case when a lower-end brand of Hilton hotels is better than an average Hilton itself. Nice and comfortable place to stop overnight, enjoy the swimming pool and complimentary breakfast. The only confusing thing is finding the entrance at night - you can clearly see the hotel from the highway but have to drive around the block to get in.
