“Red Rood, Erie PA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

This is a great - affordable - place to stay. They are in the process of renovating the rooms and I absolutely love the fact that they've done away with the carpet!!! I also commend Red Roof for being dog friendly. It is one of the few places that doesn't charge a pet fee. :)

Room Tip: All rooms are now non-smoking, but I would suggest asking for a room on the back (away from the high...

Dear Nikki,
Thank you for your support on our new flooring! Adapting to a new design can be challenging, and it is always refreshing to hear that our guests approve of our new renovations. We pride ourselves on providing clean rooms for competitive pricings and strive to stay that way. And as for being pet friendly, we always have and we always will be!

Thank you,
John

The room here was fine, just like every other Red Roof Inn, and the free breakfast from the McDonalds next door was a plus. But the proximity to the casino meant that the halls were full rowdy drunks at all hours of the night which made it just about impossible to sleep. Plus the hallways stank of cigarette smoke, although my non-smoking room did not. If you are passing through Erie, I would recommend staying at a different exit, farther from the casino.

Room Tip: There's lots of road noise on the side facing the highway.

In response to your stay with us several months ago, I would like to apologize for the disorderly conduct and noise from your neighbors during the night. Since then I have made it a point to have all of my GSR's perform nightly security walks to ensure the peace is being kept on the property. Also I would like to mention we are now officially a 100% smoke free, newly renovated hotel. I hope that if you are to ever visit the Erie area again that you allow us another chance to earn your trust.

Thank you for commenting on our new renovation! We are always thinking of ways to make our hotel more pet friendly and I am glad that we were able to make your stay a pleasant one. Also it is great to hear that our McDonald's breakfast voucher is appreciated. We worked hard to get the vouchers so all positive feedback is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for helping get the word out about our hotel! My Front Desk staff is constantly giving their best to keep our guests happy and it is wonderful to hear from our guests when they are able to do so. As for our updated rooms, soon they will be even better! We are scheduled to receive new mattresses and flat screen televisions next month. I hope you will return so we can provide you with an even better stay with us.

Thank you,

We were only sleeping here and arrived after 6 pm - room was extremely clean, quiet and just what we needed. Breakfast at McDonalds was good as well:)

Thank you for your support of our hotels pricing. We strive to provide consistent prices throughout the season that our guest can come to expect. And also thank you for your comment on our rooms. With our recent remodel we are making sure to set the bar just a little bit higher for ourselves.

For a discount hotel, this spot is a gem. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was in much better condition than I was expecting, given some of our experiences with Red Roof Inn. We are traveling with our infant son, so we were very pleased that they had a crib waiting for us.

The only down side we experienced was a loud altercation in the hallway but that's the kind of thing you can expect at a discount hotel a stone's throw away from a casino. All in all, we were pleased.

Thank you for commenting on the cleanliness of our rooms. We make certain to inspect all of our rooms daily to make sure nothing is out of place. This year after our remodel, we are aiming at setting our hotel apart not just from other Red Roofs but from local hotels as well. We will continue to strive to be the best and we thank you for helping us get the word out.

Thank you,
