Stayed 2 nights due to a snowstorm! Staff very pleasant and helpful! McDonald's and others very close, breakfast voucher at McDonald's. Comfortable, plenty of pillows. Quiet. Good local restaurants pointed out to us on a map from the front desk staff. No fridge or microwave though.

No frills but good clean rooms, comfortable beds, and friendly hospitality. The bonus is the morning with MacDonalds breakfast for you included. If you are there, try getting the rooms on the other side of the motel from the Interstate, nice and quiet.

In February 2017, my wife and I were traveling to Ohio. We had previously stayed at Red Roof Inn and the rooms were old fashioned and smelled badly.

My husband and I booked ahead of time useing Travelosity and arrived close to 11pm. Joyce greeted us and was very friendly.

The Red Roof Inn in Erie Pa is Clean, Quiet, and the price is right. Jessica does a great job keeping the rooms clean and I appreciate that.

Stayed her on Feb 27 for just one night, but I was thrilled with how friendlly and professional the front desk staff were, when I checked in this afternoon.

My wife chose this location as the first stop on the way to Florida and the last stop on the way back. The rooms were modern, well appointed and well ventilated ( no musty odour).

My boyfriend and I have travelled to Red Roof multiple times and would never hesitate to recommend. The superior rooms have been updated and are worth paying a little bit extra for.
