If you ar in Erie, why not staying at this b&b. Reasonable price, in downtown, close to presque isle, why sleep at at motel ? We went with our friends and met nice people from indiana who were on their way to canada, the exact opposite direction then us, funny no?

At 10:55am we get a loud knock on our door with a shout "CHECK OUT IS AT 11!" "My god, is it even 11am?" I thought. I rushed to get my things in order and was zipping up my suitcase next to the door when I hear another pounding on the door: "IT'S 11:15!!!!" I open the door wide-eyed and... More

Close, convenient, cozy place to stay. My wife and I loved it. I highly recommend staying here and enjoying Erie! The staff are wonderful and it honestly is so quiet that you feel as if the house is all to yourself.

The booking process online was amazingly simple, they emailed directions, room number and security code all to us. When we arrived we parked in the large off-street private parking lot behind the house. The security code we were given opens both the street door to the house and our room. There were no check in procedures - just put your... More

Thank you for mentioning all the info that is provided in our confirmation email. We cover everything that a guest would need to know before arrival. And, you are correct about it being warm when the humidity is high. Our house was built in 1872 and has high ceilings that are harder to cool. Thanks for staying with us and... More

The George Carroll House is a very nice, quiet B & B in downtown Erie. It is convenient to the Bayfront, the Medical Center and many restaurants and attractions. It is a very simple historic property. Extremely easy to check in and out. The price was fair, and the room was clean with plenty of towels. They have off-street parking... More

Keyless entry to the house itself and room was so convenient. I loved not having to ever search for a key when returning. Off street parking is also convenient. The location of the house was close to everywhere we were going so that was also great. Our room was beautiful, clean and so comfortable. It was a little warm when... More
