This is a newer concept of hotel as defined by a hotel front desk staff member. The location of the hotel is just down the road near Peach Street on Oliver Road near Splash Lagoon and the surrounding shopping center. This fact makes the location very accessible and a short drive away from many attractions. We were pleasantly surprised upon on arrival at the excellent quality of the hotel for the price, which for us was $170 a night for a Deluxe Queen Suite with Sofa Bed on the first floor. The room was IMMACULATE upon entry and included a kitchenette with a microwave, dishwasher, and even a sink. This rooms separate living area had a very comfy couch/sofa bed with a large HD 42" flat screen television also included in the bedroom. For the electronic savvy guest, this hotel provides free complimentary WIFI for your device which you can set on the movable desk with chair which both can be moved around the room.(there is also CAT 6 High Speed Ethernet ports as well) The bathroom was also excellent, with sliding pocket doors. Our only complaint about the bathroom is that the doors tend to slam easily. One of the doors also had pencil marks over part of it, but I can overlook that in my review because it is hard to notice. The bedroom has a comfy queen bed with two pillows, which may be a set back for some but the front desk could deliver some for you. The AC and Heat were great with two units in our room, which were able to keep the room at a QUIET 70 degrees easily. The saline pool is medium sized and the depth reaches 4 feet and 9 inches. The continental breakfast that Home 2 refers to is called Inspired Table, which offers a number of baked items, microwavable items, cereal, yogurt, waffles, and more. Overall, this is an excellent hotel, and I would recommend it to anyone staying in Erie PA.

Room Tip: TIP: Get a room on the first floor. Its MUCH easier to load your luggage through the side door rathe...

This is a nice new hotel. The bed was SO comfortable & the sheets were the softest I've ever slept in!! I may have to order some for home. Convenient location, right off rt90. Close to Resturants, shopping,Splash Lagoon. This hotel has a full kitchen that is really nice for families & they take pets too. Has inside swimming pool also. All the staff were terrific and very accommodating! Breakfast was good too.

We receive many great compliments about our sheets! They are a microfiber blend that is only made for Home2. I understand that several brands in the Hilton family are interested in getting the sheets for their properties too- but only Home2 has them so far! Please come back to see us soon!!

We stayed one night in this hotel on a Saturday. The hotel was very nice and very clean. The staff were lovely. The room was well stocked and very clean. The bed was super comfy and the sheets were SO soft. Best stay in a hotel I've had since vacationing in the caymans. We would definitely stay here again and again. A+ well done.

This is a new concept by Hilton, and the suite rooms are very nice. It leans more toward an extended stay hotel, with the full size fridge and kitchenette. Attractive, modern furnishings, efficient storage space, very nice privacy curtain between the bed area and suite sitting area. The rollout desk design is a bit clumsy.

We experienced 2 negatives during our 4 day stay:
-- The pool area furnishings are sparse. There were only 4 chaise lounges, made from an uncomfortable, slippery hard plastic material, in keeping with the ultra-modern motif.

-- the breakfast was a significant negative for us, such that we will not return. Hilton proclaims a "healthy" breakfast, using this as an excuse to strip the offerings down to bare minimums. Because they use hard plates and silverware, people do not clean their tables when done; each day, tables were full of dirty dishes, and it was hard to find a place to sit. The counter was a mess, and the floor was sticky.

Offerings are limited to 2 waffle machines (whole grain, tasted like cardboard), cold cereal, breads and toaster, and some deep frozen, microwave them yourself, cheese eggs. It took 7 minutes in the tiny microwave to cook 1 serving of eggs. Rather than a hot breakfast tray, one encounters an unappetizing frozen package, which one has to stand for a long time to microwave.

The breakfast appeared to us to be a rollback towards the continental breakfasts of 10 years ago, as a cost savings measure by Hilton. Our disappointment was politely brought to the attention of the manager.

For that reason, we'll pass on this chain.

Very friendly staff and the rooms are larger than normal with kitchens and sofas. The extra space was nice, since we were traveling with two young children. The hotel is only a few months old, so everything is new and modern. The complimentary breakfast is well done. The location is convenient to Splash Lagoon and many restaurants.

My husband and I have made short trips to Erie every year for the last 8 years together, and have never stayed at the same hotel. Since this one was new and looked fantastic, we chose Home 2 for our weekend anniversary trip. The desk staff were super nice and complemented each other perfectly. We were checked in in record time. One of the elevators was out of order, but the other was still useable. Our room was large, very clean, and comfortable. The bathroom was small, but clean. I really liked that there were body wash and shampoo dispensers in the shower. The kitchen area was small, but it noted that they had portable cook tops available at no extra charge. We did take advantage of the fridge, microwave, dishes and dishwasher. The large tv had a swivel so we could watch it in bed or on the couch. The couch was ok, but I shouldn't expect too much from a hotel couch. The bed was fantastic, with the softest sheets I've ever slept on. I just wish that there had been four pillows instead of just two. Out our window was a view of splash lagoon and some of the peach street eateries etc, so not a terrible view. The walls and floor weren't very sound proof at all, as we could hear people in the hallways and rooms around us. All in all, I truly enjoyed our stay at Home 2 and would recommend it to others!
