We stayed here for one night after a fun day at the beach. Was not sure what to expect as the place seemed very empty for a July weekend in Erie. We walked in without a reservation and was greeted warmly by the receptionist. Pleasantly surprised by the clean rooms, bathrooms and hallways. Slightly outdated decor, rooms are large enough...

I booked this hotel as part of a wedding block. I assumed it would be a nice decent hotel but when we arrived I was surprised. It was old, run down, and worn. There was signage everywhere about protecting your belongings and "report suspicious persons or acts" "Never open door prior to verifying ID". There was a sign on my... More

When we checked in the gentleman was so nice. He told us about the hotel and all the amenities that go with it. How to get to our room and about breakfast. The room was clean and spacious. The pool and hot tub both were clean and at the right temp. Check out was easy with no waiting. Thank you
