DO NOT STAY HERE! I so wish that I could give positive comments about this hotel, but it was awful. Don't waste your money like we did. We had a 'newly renovated room' which had a refrigerator that did not work and NO ONE was ever available to fix it. I had triple checked on the amenities through the front desk of the hotel before we checked in and I was told that we would have a microwave and refrigerator. We did not. The room was so hot that we assumed that there must have been a problem with the air conditioner. We were told that it's just an old system. It's a small, old vent on the one wall and the air coming out feels like a fan. The air coming out of the vent is warm to cool. It was so hot that we opened the window to sleep, even though there was no screen in the window and it only opened about 6 inches. Just be aware that all of the rooms are like this. HOT...and there is nothing you can do about it. Also, ask about parking because the parking garage that is dark and dirty doesn't have enough spaces for the hotel, so each time you leave, you are not guaranteed a parking spot. One evening we had to park on the street a block away. This is no exageration. Also, you will have to ask for extra towels because there were 2...for 4 people. The room, even though it was one of the newly renovated rooms...the hotels words...not ours...the drawer was missing from the desk; the chain lock on the door was so old and bent that we couldn't use it and you are in downtown Erie. Remember...the refrig. did not work and it was sitting on the floor. I could tell you so much more, but I am getting so angry just thinking about the money we wasted on that place! If you do take the time to read the reviews, you hopefully will take them seriously and find somewhere else to stay. We could not wait to leave. It was the most bizarre experience we have ever had! If you do make reservations, you'll see exactly what all these negative reviews are about. Actually, you will probably be writing your own after you leave. I read the reviews once we returned and I could not believe how true they were!
