“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2007

We spent five days here with our five year old Grandson in August 2007, and were very disappoinded in the following areas.

1. Houskeeping was poor, never changed sheets, vacumning
was very poor, failed to supply drinking cups daily. Cleaning
carts placed in front of elavators. Spider webs on window.
2. The water in the pool was cold and water in hot tub was
dirty and only partially filled, unable to use.
3. The room cardkey had to be reactivated ever two days,
unable to enter the room.

For a hotel that was recently renovated, things sure are in a state of disarray. The free wireless Internet was down the entire time we were there. The pool and hot tub were also out of service when we arrived. Then they reopened. Then the hot tub was closed again a day later. The elevators are scary. We decided early on we'd take the stairs. They smell like smoke and are prone to sudden starts and stops. The hallways are a mess, as well. Not sure that the new carpeting has EVER been vacuumed. All that's a shame because the rooms are actually quite nice. Pretty much everything -- linens, furniture, flooring -- was new. No noise from adjacent rooms, either. The free breakfast is pretty lame ... the only hot item is the waffles you can make yourself. Unless, of course, you count the frozen Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches they offer. Seriously. Other offerings include pastries, cereal, fruit, coffee and juice. Locationwise, you're right next to a major mall and tons of big-box stores, as well as all the major highways. All in all, this is a decent property that could be a great property with a little more TLC.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel because we were taking advantage of the strong Canadian dollar to do some shopping in the US.

There is not a lot of hotels in Erie particularly around Peach Street area and most were fully booked on the weekend we were there.

The hotel is located on the ground of Millcreek Mall at the back next to a closed down retail box store but we did not know that and there was no sign for this hotel on Interchange road, so we had a hard time find the place.

Once we were there we found the hotel were under renovation, there was some paint smell in our room and the room numbers were hand written. The carpet in the hallway has also been cleaned recently because some of it are still wet. But this is only temporary as they are almost done with their renovation.

On the good side, the rooms are huge and they had a nice indoor swimming pool and whirlpool. The breakfast has a lot of variety and you can make your own waffle. There are also coffee, tea and hot chocolate available throughout the day.

We might considered coming back because now we can find this hotel. It is close to all the retail stores we want and only an hour drive to the big Outlet Mall in Grove City.

Newer hotel in an odd part of town (behind the Millcreek Mall next to an abandoned superstore). Whichever CEO approved these floorplans must have been sleeping. The halls are narrow & the elevator is stuck in an an alcove that is so narrow two people cannot walk next to each other let alone get in/out of the elevator easily. Our room on the 4th floor was clean and bright with new carpeting thruout. The limited continental breakfast was served in a crowded area that was not efficient to serve the large number of residents. Pool is small and the same one you see in most hotels these days. This hotel was inhabited by many sports players and families this weekend and was noisier than would have liked. The A/C fan was running constantly to try and drown out the hall noise. Because this is a fully non-smoking hotel all the smokers converge by the front entrance making exits/entrances awful.

  • Liked — queen sized beds in rooms
  • Disliked — in a really odd part of town stuck behind a mall near abandoned buildings

We stayed at the Erie Farifield Inn recently for one night in transit. I have never stayed at a Fairfield Inn before, but have had exprieneces in the various hotels in the Marriott group before, so I believed I knew what to expect.

Overall the stay was OK, but we were disappointed as we felt that this hotel did not meet what I would expect from a Fairfield Inn-class hotel. We paid $100 for the night, and I have had significantly better experiences for that price range - in Erie and elsewhere.

In particular, the following disappointed us:
-The location was diffcult to find, even after calling for directions. Better signage at the main roads are needed.
- We requested a crib, and one was provided in the room, but it was not assembled, and no instructions were provided. In my opinion, this is equivalent to a hotel porviding bed linens, but not making the bed before the guests' arrival.
- The breakfast was not up to the standard I expected in a hotel of this price range and class. The variety was lacking, and the staff had difficulty keeping items in stock.
- The mattress was too soft and our backs ached after the night's sleep. Admittedlty we prefer firm mattress ourselves, but in order to appeal to the largest variety of sleepers, most hotels opt for mattresses that are neither too firm or too soft.

One thing I did aprreciate was that the entire hotel had wireless high speed internet service.

On our next trip to Erie, we plan to stay at a different hotel, unless the room rate is significantly lower.

  • Liked — Wireless High Speed Internet Access all throughout hotel.
  • Disliked — Mattresses and breakfast.

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved everything about it! We would definately stay here again next time we go to Erie for shopping.
Location: it is right at the Millcreek Mall.
Room: Clean, good size, very comfortable beds.
Extras: Nice swimming pool, although a little cool. Excellent hot tub, clean. FREE breakfast, about 10 different things incl. make your own waffles if you dont mind waiting.
There are restaurants nearby including Ponderosa but you're better off going up the road to the Golden Corral if you are looking for a good buffet.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Paid $68 a night plus tax using AARP discount. Facility was clean and well kept, room was neat, larger than most rooms, free wireless high speed internet. Bedding was excellent, no dusty, smelly, dirty comforter, a nice clean blanket surrounded by 2 clean sheets. Digital thermostat controls heat/ac, the included buffet breakfast has waffles, cereal, muffins, bagels, donuts, fruit, coffee, juice, the area is clean and well stocked and the staff was very friendly.
Shopping and a ton of restaurants nearby and if your willing to drive for a mile or so you will find all kinds of restaurants and shopping. there is a mall right along side of the property.

Hotel located about 5 to 7 miles from center city Erie, easy to get to Presque Isle, waterfront etc. Staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. Yes it is a tad noisy at times, but I have paid 2 and 3 times as much and had to put up with a lot more noise and dirt. I would definetly stay here again, it is right off I79 and real close to the other interstate (I think it is I90) All the major stores and chain restaurants are real close to the hotel. The hotel is located right behind a large strip center and adjacent to a major mall.

Clean, well kept and the price is right.
