The hotel is situated a a good walk from the water front, but some good pubs are very close. We went to the Plymouth pub just up the street, would highly recommend it. The hotel is clean but desperately needs updating, but that is reflected in the price. Free parking, WiFi, and breakfast are a nice plus.

My husband and I stayed here with our toddler and I was very disappointed. Literally everything needs updated. Peeling wallpaper, moldy ceiling, water stained lampshade, fridge that didn't work, thermostat locked at 80 degrees, 40 year old carpet, drapes and bed spread... And tv. I did not find any bugs however. The parking felt a little scary. The sheets smelled... More

Should have read the reviews ....5 of us booked in for 7 nights left after 2. Unbelievable that somewhere like this is allowed to remain open, It was filthy with probably the friendliest and unhelpful staff we ever met. The manager was so uninterested she didn't even ask why we booked out 5 nights early.

We needed a overnight stop and took a "hot rate" price for this hotel. If I had known how pathetic the place was, we would have easily paid more for something even just a tiny bit better. No hot water, extremely outdated rooms, bathroom had not been cleaned from previous tenant and the beds were as cheap as could be... More

Stay away nothing nice about the rooms to say. It's a crack house or prostitution home. The Nastiest place I ever been to.. parking ramp it a dark dungeon and creepy. Doors to rooms for employees left open and look like a big party house.

This was the nastiest hotel I have ever stayed in. This was a quick overnight trip I planned for my husband for Father's Day and it was a bust. As soon as you walk in the hotel you're greeted with this horrible, nasty chemical smell that smells like they're trying to cover smoke or something. It was even stronger in... More

I wanna clarify my poor rating for this hotel. If you're looking for a modern, clean, convenient family lodge, then this is not your place. If ya wanna round up a couple of old friends and party like ya used to could, this place would be perfect.

On the way to Cleveland from Toronto, we decided to stay in Erie due to an anticipated visit to the state park. Upon arrival, I felt a little uneasy due to the fact there were only 7 other cars in the garage at 9pm. Hotel was very dingy and you are forced to sign your life away regarding extra charges...

What should have been a great experience for a friends wedding turned into an almost traumatic one. Upon arrival we were greeted with friendly desk staff. When I entered my room my bed was recently slept in, the remote on the bed and television on. Neither bed had a bed skirt on, showing the filthy mattresses. I called the front... More
