“1Night Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Nice location, clean, comfortable. Nothing to complain about. Staff was helpful and they even have adult refreshments for sale in the lobby. If we have to visit Erie in the future we would stay at this hotel.

Stayed here overnight, in the middle of Roar on the Shore and a local wedding. We got a 5th floor room, with small balcony. Everything was great in the room.

The only watch out - if you are here during the 'Roar' motorcycle event , be prepared for loud motorcycles late into the evening on the streets all around Erie.

We would come back here again.

I feel compelled to write this review since it was such a pleasurable experience. Two retired teachers were treated as royalty. Everyone went above and beyond to make our visit to Erie delightful. The staff that answered our questions, made reservations for us, arranged shuttle service, internet assistance in the lobby, and always greeted us coming and going with true interest and concern. Denise, Charity, Darrel and Mark were so polite, informative and so accommodating. We thank each and every one of you for making our stay truly enjoyable. We’ll be back!

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a balcony and our room was quiet.

Close to highway and shopping mall. Free shuttle from airport. Lots of things within walking distance including U Pick 6. Attached to Hilton Garden Inn which shares a restaurant which is so-so at best. Staff is very nice. I always enjoy my stays here.

Room Tip: Building is off the main road - all rooms work

This was our first time staying at the Courtyard in Erie, Pennsylvania. I have read the other reviews. Yes it does have a slightly vintage feel, light switches, power outlet placements, and tiny things. But I kind of like that. One of the things I loathe about recent ‘modernisations’ made to the Courtyard brand, probably the only thing, is the change to a cheap looking fast food backlit menu in the Bistro. I wish they would go back to small table/bar top menus. But none of that is this particular hotel’s fault. That is corporate.

Check in was smooth and extremely welcoming even though we were staying on points, which I always feel a bit guilty about.

Room, extremely spacious with a whirlpool. VERY fun and really needed as I am nursing bruised ribs from a fall and we had been driving for hours. Yes the tub took a while to fill and not all the jets worked but who cares? Room and bath immaculate and clean. Love the fact that the window opens. Yes it is right by the freeway, so of course there was noise but nothing too terrible. If you are sensitive to noise close the window and the curtains. Simple. Beds, towels and bedding all up to normal Courtyard standards. Could do with a couple of extra pillows on a king-sized bed. Just a suggestion.

Hubby used the well-equipped exercise room but we didn't get to use the pool which is a shame as it looked lovely.

The layout of the hotel is very quirky, which I also like. It meanders about with outdoor spaces that can be rented, lobby areas, banquet room and a kind of ‘walkway’ through to a neighbouring hotel which has a very nice restaurant which I will review separately.

Altogether I recommend this hotel.

Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great and in-depth review of our property, Carolyn P. We appreciate all your kind and generous words, and I wanted to take a moment to personally respond to some great points. We will take your input regarding our Bistro in our lobby into consideration during our next renovation, but you are correct as much of the decor and ambience is due to corporate standards. We do, however, try our very hardest to personalize your experience, and if there ever are any preferences or requests you may have, we will certainly try our hardest to accommodate you. Also, please don't feel guilty for staying on points! That is one of the perks of being a Marriott Rewards member, and is our pleasure to be able to show you how much we appreciate you. Thank you again, for your review and for your loyalty to our property. We are elated to hear how much you enjoyed your stay, and hope we are able to provide you many more great experiences with us here at Courtyard Erie.

Served purpose. The hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant. Could use more parking, larger vanities, and upgraded décor. They are putting in a new sidewalk and it looked nice. Overall, I would stay again.

I have stayed in more than a few hotels in the Erie area for mainly business travel. One of my favorites is the the Courtyard By Marriott. Close to everything, and I do mean everything. Pool, exercise room, balcony, hot tubs. Great atmosphere. Always neat and clean. Professional staff.

Room Tip: Tell them what you want. Some rooms have hot tubs, some have balconies. Ask for a room one of the hi...
