breakfast is at the McDonalds next door. It wasn't hard to find from the highway but a little tricky getting into the parking lot because the entrance to McDonalds is so close. Beds were not too comfortable.

Stayed here for one night as part of a shopping trip with friends.
Pro's
Not a bad price, updated rooms, free McDonalds breakfast, clean, helpful front desk staff, left extra pillows and towells in the room, surprisingly quiet even though it is RIGHT beside the interstate.
Con's
Not the greatest location (there is nothing close enough to walk to other than other hotels, McDonalds, Arbys and a really bad country bar). If you don't want to drive or take a taxi for dinner you are pretty stuck.
Bit concerned by the security. Rooms aren't attached to the front desk and there are no locks on exterior doors leading to the corridors...kind of odd.
Overall, our stay was fine and I would recommend the hotel in a pinch. But next time I got to Erie I would probably pick somewhere else (and pay a bit more) to get more ammenities and better area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the interior hallways.

We were on our way to Boston via I-90 and needed a pet friendly hotel. I was not sure about the quality of the hotel since I have never stayed in a Red Roof Inn before, but I was pleasantly surprised! The other guests seemed to be families, couples with pets, or people like us on their way somewhere. I felt very safe in our room. Our room was certainly no frills, but was clean. The 'free' breakfast they offer is actually a MacDonald's voucher, which turned out to be very convenient for us. We will definitely stay her again!

Good place to stay if you want to be closer between Presque Isle and North East Pa. Nice staff and clean room and reasonable price. Near Presque Isle Down and Casino if you want to gamble. A 24 hour Mcdonalds that I truly appreciate. If you want to visit the wineries at North East area it is just 15 to 20 minutes drive, same as going to Presque Isle State Park .

Room Tip: If youre a light sleeper definitely not a place for you. A little bit noisy due to busy Interstate w...

Stayed one night, and booked at the last minute. Was lower priced than any other Erie hotels, and booked because of the good reviews and had stayed at Red Roof in other cities and they were all decent. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable, and less than 5 minutes from Peach Street and Erie's main attractions. I requested late checkout and got to check out at 2pm. I would definitely stay again in the future.

Made reservation online, check in went smoothly(the desk clerk was on the phone, could have acknowledged me while taking the phone call). We got in after 10 pm, and had to park in the back of the property, away from our room. Room faced the highway, you can hear the traffic, but not so bad as to disrupt sleep. Wireless internet was easily accessed and worked fine, although it is an unsecured network. The room appeared clean, had updated bathroom fixtures. The beds were uncomfortable and hard, linens were paper thin and old. The room had a funky fragrance to it, didn't smell clean, smelled perfumed.If you are looking for a bargain priced motel, this is your place. It was clean and cheap and served the purpose. The voucher for breakfast at McDonald's was a plus.
