“Exactly what I expected from a Comfort Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2010

I chose to stay at the 12th St. Comfort Inn in Erie both because of the location (convenient to the things I would be doing) and because of the price. This is an old Hampton Inn, and I had stayed there before when it was the Hampton Inn. I have always found this property to be clean and comfortable. I don't eat the continental breakfasts at most hotels, so I can't evaluate the quality there, although they were doing some renovations in the lobby area to accommodate some improvements to the breakfast menu.

Because the weather was bad when I was there, I do want to mention that their parking lot can be somewhat treacherous. The pavement is uneven in places, and water collects and ices over easily. They appeared to keep the sidewalk clear in front of the handicapped parking spaces, but I had to walk across the parking lot to get to the sidewalk, and it was quite icy. There did not seem to be any effort to salt anywhere in the parking lot, although they did plow. It was even icy under the portico, and this is where most patrons would park to check in and unload luggage. The management should pay attention to this before someone falls and is seriously injured.

A girlfriend and I went to Erie for a shopping trip and stayed at the Comfort Inn. Although the hotel was a little out of the way, it was nice that we didn't have to deal with highway noise if we had stayed at a hotel closer to the malls. I was really happy with the complimentary breakfast and the service was great. I would stay there again.

We checked in, and the room had not been cleaned very well. The bed had not received fresh sheets and pillowcases, as evidenced by the body hair on the sheets and the stains on the pillowcases. However, the night manager made it right.
Unsupportive mattress, beware those with a back sensitive to this. Average free breakfast. Completely mediocre in almost every other way. I can't believe the number of five-star reviews. This hotel is worn, and could use an update, but what do you expect for Erie, PA.

Stayed 3 nights at the Comfort Inn on 12th Street. Easy check in, they had our room available even though we were there before normal check in time. Friendly staff. Earned a free night stay. Room clean. Furniture up-dated. Close to Presque Isle and other attractions easy to get around. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Super market with in couple of miles.

we got out of here within 5 minutes......the only thing the ac/heating unit emitted was a loud buzzing noise......the door handle/lock was jamming/sticking, heaven help the occupants if there was a fire......when we picked up the phone to call down to the front desk, it was all sticky and disgusting.....when we went to write down the address of the hotel we were switching to, all the papers on the desks, etc. were coffee stained.....as we were leaving we told the front desk person..why and that he should tell the manager, all he said was he didn't care, it wasn't his job

Had reservations. When we arrived the lobby was overflowing with pre teens in town for a hocky tournament. Would have cancelled and gone elsewhere but everything in town was full. Desk clerk assured us none of the group would be on the third floor - wrong. Kids ran up and down the hall until almost 11PM. Room itself was very nice, clean, well furnished. Location was quite a ways from I79, the mall area and the casino, but near Presque Isle State Park. Breakfast was adequate, seating area a little small. Depending on what you plan to do in Erie, this motel might be a good choice.

Stayed over on a Saturday evening after a day of traveling along the lake to the wineries and seeing an Erie Otters game. While it could use a bit of refreshing as far as furniture (a bit dated and worn), it is a very affordable, clean choice! We checked in very quickly with a friendly young man and headed right up to our room. Room was quite large. The king bed and pillows were comfortable. Bathroom was spotless! Even though there was a hockey team staying on our floor, it was very quiet at night. Breakfast the next morning was really nice for a Comfort Inn! Waffles, eggs, sausage along with cereal, fruits and muffins, etc. Good way to start our 2 hour trip home. Would stay here again anytime!
