The staff were very courteous and helpful. The room was exactly as described. The room was very clean and well kept. There was some highway noise, but that did not matter as I was dog tired and went straight to sleep.

Room Tip: You get free breakfast at the McDonalds next door when you stay at this Red Roof Inn.

We aim to deliver honest transparent service to our guests when it comes to our rooms. I am very glad that our rooms lived up to your expectations and that we did not disappoint. Also thank you for complimenting of the friendliness of my Front Desk team. We take pride in our inn and also building relationships with our guests. As for the highway noise we could definitely remedy the situation the next time by placing you in a room opposite the highway.
Thank you, John

I cannot say enough to express how great this motel is. The office staff were kind, friendly and went out of their way to be of help. The location is perfect; plenty of restaurants, bar, casino nearby. The room was the best out of all the Red Roof Inns I've stayed at (I stay at RRI more than any other hotel chain. All the RRi use 'wandering wifi' which is the worst wifi of any hotel chain. This is the only thing RRI needs to work on. It works, but horribly. If you are going to stay in Erie pa, which is where I'm at right now, stay here at RRI before ANY OTHER hotel!!!!!

Room Tip: Ground floor, to me, are the best. These rooms have outside entrances.

We were sceptical about the hotel at first but booked it after seeing the reviews and obviously the TA'ers were right! The hotel was newly renovated, clean and although slightly on the small side, had everything we needed. The McDonald's breakfast made it all the more worth it.

While I am sad to hear that you were at first hesitant to stay with us I am glad that you chose us in the end and that we did not disappoint. I appreciate your honesty in your review of our hotel. Tripadvisor is a great way our potential guests can get an honest critique of our hotel. I think that our reviews speak for themselves in the level of commitment that we have to our guests. I hope that the next time you visit Erie we will be your first choice in hotel and we look forward to seeing you again!

Stopped here for one night in April.
Clean updated room, comfortable bed, vouchers for a free McDonald's breakfast, and a very convenient location, just off the highway. All for less than $50!

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back, not facing the highway

Convenient location, nicely decorated with new laminate flooring, flat screen TV, complimentary wi-fi, comfy bed, clean and comfortable. Stayed on the Saturday night of the Victoria Day long weekend, great rate including breakfast at McDonalds next door plus $7 casino money, like I said, great value! We will definately stay here again when travelling to Erie.
