3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The good:

-Rooms are large and fairly clean
-Beds were very comfortable
-Check-in/out were friendly
-Many restaurants/shopping very close by
-Seems like a safe area
-Close to I-90

The bad

-Seems to be starting to show its age
-TV is a bit small
-Called for an extra pillow and it never came
-Needs an easily accessible electrical outlet near the bed for charging laptops/ipads etc
-The alarm clock in our room was damaged and did not work, cord was damaged
-TV remote was not very good
-Internet was TERRIBLY slow, the busy hotel I am at tonight is VERY fast!

The ugly:

-Pool area air was like a chlorine gas chemical attack, we swim a lot and this was probably the worst ever pool area air quality we had experienced
-Someone had vomited a lot in the main pool and it was floating around in the pool. We told the front desk and decided to use just the hot tub. The pool should have been immediately closed and cleaned. No one came to deal with it while we were there...
-The pool area is so small and there is a lot of rust on the door area and ceiling, I know it is hard with all the moisture, but other places deal with it...

For what it cost, it was NOT a good value and next time, I think we will try somewhere else....

Room Tip: Stay away from end near interstate....

I am so sorry your visit was so subpar - especially the pool incident - I will review our policies with the staff today!

This is a nice, affordable hotel. This place has those extra touches that set it a cut above similar hotels in the area. The beds are comfy, the rooms are good size, and the a/c works well. The front desk and everyone who works here treat customers well. The breakfast is better than most, like real eggs, sausage, it varies a little each morning, and the coffee is good 24/7, and they have coffee flavorings, and some evenings they have a managers reception with drink and food. One night they set up popcorn. Just those little touches that set this place apart from the norm. The pool and hot tub area is well maintained. We will return when in Erie.

Room Tip: We always like the top floor of anyplace.

We travelled to Erie for the first time and stayed at the Wingate by Wyndham. The hotel was easy to find being fairly close to the highway. The room was a good size and came equipped with a king bed, flat screen tv, microwave, mini-fridge, hairdryer, iron and board, safe, coffee maker, and had free wifi. It was clean with a fairly modern décor both in the room and bathroom. Lots of clean thick towels and good water pressure. No complaints really about the room other than the oddly small pillows but there were plenty of them so it wasn't a problem. It was an incredibly hot and humid week when we visited and we were so glad the air conditioning worked well although it was a bit loud when it would start during the night.
We didn't use the pool or exercise room on this visit.
There is a free breakfast buffet in the morning offering a waffle station, scrambled or boiled eggs, bagels, toast, pastries, cereals, sausages, potatoes, yogurts, juices, coffee and tea. It could get quite busy at times which meant waits for some of the choices and the toasting oven.
We found the staff at the front desk were always very friendly and helpful. I have to comment also on how nice it was to get a thank you note from Katie (I think that was her name) in housekeeping hoping that we would enjoy our trip.
Our friends joined us on the second day and we all had a terrific time golfing for two days. It's a trip we would certainly do again.
