I stayed here by accident since we were too tired to drive home. I heard a siren and asked if it was safe. There is an ambulance service in the plaza next door and the fire department 2 blocks down. It was so cheap I expected the room to be bad. Surprise! Surprise! The place was clean and the bed...

Read this review and arm yourselves with knowledge: As a traveling musician, I've stayed in my share of slummy motels. (Note: this is not a hotel in the least. It's a MOTEL.) I'm not picky. But this dump... this one takes the cake for repulsiveness. My band's gig in Erie was totally unexpected. Consequently, all of the hotels in the...

The room was very clean, although dated. The hotel is in a great location, walkable to everything in downtown Erie. The exterior of the hotel was shabby, however if you can overlook that and the dated furnishings, the hotel offers a clean place to sleep when you want to be in a good location to explore the city.

What a terrible experience, I will never stay here again. When we arrived at the room there was a huge hole in the wall, and overall rundown. The "continental" breakfast consisted of a couple muffins in a bag, coffee, and toast. Worst of all, I was charged an extra $100 on my credit card 2 days later. When questioning about...

I litterally felt like I had walked into a ghetto when we arrived at our room. All the hotels in the area were booked, accept for this place. We asked a hotel clerk for instructions to the place and her simple yet bleak wqords were " no, don't go there, try comfort in up the road". We soon realized among...

We got there and the outside looked good until they directed you around back!!!!! The whole back of the hotel looked like it was falling down. The place was filthy!!!! I took one look in the bathroom and decided right then to get out. My 10 year old was having a panic attack and was crying if this is what...
