To be fair the Hotel is under new management and under renovations, however, this was one of the worst hotels at which I have stayed. The carpeting was ripped and torn, the ice machine was broken on the 2nd floor, the breakfast was the worst I have had at any hotel/motel I've stayed. The room size was spacious, and the... More

I booked this hotel for a 1-night stay with my family of 3. And I am so glad it was only for one night. The hotel is being renovated as other reviews have mentioned, but wow was I disappointed. Most particularly in our room. It reeked of cigarette smoke even though it is supposed be a "non-smoking" hotel. We are... More

We planned a last minute trip and booked a different hotel via a discount site. Since they don't tell you the name until after booking we had a failed find. The place we booked had nothing but negative and awful reviews. Wasn't about to take my cold there. Needed to find a room last minute and booked this one in... More

We stayed at the Solstice in Erie on May 13 & 14. The rooms were very clean. The hotel is being renovated. They have an indoor pool. Splash Lagoon is close by. Many restaurants in the area. We would like to recognize the hard working man that was working at the breakfast buffet on Sunday, May 15.

Beautiful hotel. Some of the other guests were very loud, screaming and fighting in the hall and smoking in their room, causing smoke alarms to go off in the middle of the night, which was dealt with by staff immediately. Stayed here about a year ago before it switched over, total transformation. Breakfast was hot and fresh. Room was spotless.... More

Getting into our hotel we noticed the hallways were dirty. The room was worse. Thick stiff visible dust on curtains and light fixtures. Corners of carpeting was never vacuumed. The couch had filth between the cushions - never cleaned. I asked for the GM the next morning to discuss the filth, but there was not one available. I was told... More

The empty parking lot should have been our clue. We never did get a remote control that worked, housekeeping didn't come, we had to ask for breakfast items, and coffee & hot water were never hotter than lukewarm. The staff acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us stay there. There are lots of hotels in Erie,... More

Nothing like previous Country Inn. The only plus was it was relatively clean...except when checking if we had everything prior to check out we found a sock left from a previous guest. The staff and management seemed nice but it couldn't make up for the need of repairs and renovations throughout the entire hotel. In my room, both bedside light... More

BEWARE- All 3 of us did NOT stay here. Refund was claimed to be guaranteed to be provided. Credit Card. The Best thing is do not trust the management at this facility. Its very unfortunate that a place like this can actually operate like this.
