We planned a last minute Splash Lagoon trip for 1 night before a trip to Erie/Presque Isle due to the weather being unusually cold for late July. We knew swimming outside would be limited so decided on budget-friendly Econo for Splash Lagoon package. The hotel runs by itself close to $100 a night which is reasonable for the Erie area but for this hotel itself I think is over-priced.We stayed 1 night, 1 adults, 2 kids, Sun July 28th. There were a good many no's associated with this hotel/stay but its not the worst hotel or Econo Lodge we ever stayed at.This is an ok hotel for Splash lagoon and they provide a free shuttle over and back. If you are not doing the Lagoon, find another place. We also stayed at Days in 5 minutes down the road for the next part of our trip, it is $15 cheaper a night and seems better run, a little cleaner, better breakfast, outdoor pool...
"No" to maintanence! The indoor pool was closed. We were never informed of this when booking the day before. It really wasnt an issue because we were there to do Splash Lagoon Indoor waterpark across the street. Had we just ben passing through or staying there for another reason I would have been upset. We inquired about the pool and were told there were told maintance had all quit and there was no maintanance. If you are coming soon, check on this. It made me nervious if we had a maint issue who would have taken care of it?
No! to good beds, they were older and creaky, not a real comfy sleep.
No! to good neighbors. I know its not the hotels fault but that what you get at these budget hotels, we have stayed in them before. You get a crowd that has no regards for anyone else and scresmed, talked loud and slammed doors till 1:00 AM. i KNOW ITS A HOTEL AND i EXPECT SOME NOISE BUT THIS WAS BEYOND NORMAL NOISE AND WAS RUDE ON THEIR PART,
No! to a decent varitey of breakfast. I know again, its budget but after staying in all sorts of budget hotels, I have seen better variety of foods.
No! to updated rooms, they need some refurbashing and could be a little cleaner. Bedding does seem newer
* Access to Waterpark, interstate/Erie
* Staff pretty friendly
* Pool from what I remember 5 years was nice
