The place is showing its age but was pretty nice for the money. We thought the pool was dirty. The breakfast buffet was not free and looked like a tornado had hit it. Stuff was spilled and the tables were a mess. The waffle maker was disgusting.

This is always our go to get away spot. I'm thinking of finding a new one. The shower was a trickle. Seriously the worst shower ever, and I spun it around and what not. The hair dryer was broken. Stained red carpet under the fridge. The coffee center was out so I told the front desk and she told ME...

Stated there over night to have a girls night out in Erie. Went to the comedy club down town and enjoyed ourselves. The hotel was amaze and sometimes we got lost trying to get from our third floor to the cafe and front desk. The breakfast for five dollars was pretty good and cheap ad the hotel staff was decent.

This hotel is older, and while still nice, it is a bit worn. The room was adequate, but the coffee maker didn't work. Basic room - nothing remarkable about it. The best part was the breakfast buffet - a hot buffet with eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, waffles, cereal, fruit - all you could want - for only $5.00 per person....

We stayed overnight to visit the Erie park area. The hot/cold breakfast was included and fairly good, no one was hungry. The staff was very pleasant. We were slightly confused as to how to get our room, but it too, was nice and comfortable. We had everthing we needed. Lots of parking. My granddaughter loved the indoor atrium pool adjacent...

Stayed at the hotel last night. The hotel is average. Nothing fancy . Room was clean . Hallway ceilings are kind of gross. My big issue is I forgot a special pillow that I brought with me. I called less than 2 hours after check out and was told they didn't find it. I know I left it there ....

Erie is becoming a tourist town now so hotel prices are on the rise. The clarion was a good choice for a mid priced hotel. Our room was clean and had direct access to the indoor pool. I specifically requested accommodation at the front desk and it was honored. Breakfast was served buffet style around the pool area. It was...
