One of the most filthy Motels we have ever stayed at. No pride of ownership. Garbage around the front door, trash next to the vanity, peeling paint, dirty floors and much more. Avoid this place at all costs

Room Tip: Pick another place

I wanted a room that was cheap & clean. I got that. Only about a mile to Presque Isle, which is HUGE in my book. I just needed a bed, shower, AC and a TV, I got that. The AC unit was in the window which had drapes on it, so getting cold air into the room was tough at night, once I pulled the drapes, as it's all on ground level. Seems like a lot of fishermen stay there. As long as you don't expect fancy you are OK. Small fridge in room. Great people. TIGHT parking lot, if you are driving an RV or something...I don't know how you'd do it. The pool looked OK.... I just don't understand why you'd want a pool with the beach so close!

This was our first trip to Erie PA/Presque Isle and I can guarantee that it will be a yearly destination for us! We would certainly stay at the Riviera Motel again. I do not care about decor, matching bed spreads and curtains....I care about the cleanliness of the room, the bed sheets, etc. and the Riviera was clean. It is a little retro and has an older feel, but the rooms are quiet, the water is hot and everything was clean and worked. Plenty of room for the money. (We had 2 adults and 2 teens in our party). The heated pool and area was immaculate, the "front porch feel" is a great way to wind down after a busy day of running, beaching and doing what tourists do!!! Bottom line if you are interested in aesthetics this may NOT be the place for you...If price and a clean place to sleep at night, with friendly staff and a "neighborly" atmosphere is what you dig...check out the Riviera.

We go to this place every year, twice a year and we love it! It's quaint and has a neat 1970's retro feel to it. The staff there is very nice and they will help you as much as they can. It's also a nice place to meet some new people! We met some of our good friends there!

If you are a person who is easily pleased and likes a quiet, laid back place to stay, this is it. If you're the type of person who wants a free continental breakfast and all the amenities, then you should go somewhere else.

Room Tip: the rooms with two beds are more spacious and comfortable

If you want the feel of a cheap 1960s motel, the Riviera Motel is what you'll get...at a price that's not so cheap. Since it rained a good deal of our trip, we spent much more time in the motel than we had planned. And that was not a good thing. This was our yearly multiple-family vacation to Erie and we had several rooms rented. Many of the rooms had the same issues.

The rooms were not very clean. I wouldn't let my toddler play on the floor. There was absolutely no counter space in the room or bathroom...and a couple rooms didn't even have a dresser. A single room air-conditioner was retro-fitted into the wall and was rather noisy. Almost every channel on the TV was snowy. The room was lacking in outlets for cell phone chargers, laptops, etc... The bathtub shower/faucet knob didn't work properly in one room, and the toilet didn't flush properly in another room. Nothing was addressed, even after we brought it to the attention of the motel staff on our second day of the trip.

The front desk had our reservations mixed-up, and the motel staff in-general were not very friendly.

On the plus side, the pool was nice and It is convenient to Waldameer and Presque Isle, but we will definitely NOT be staying at the Riviera again.
