The room was very clean, the woman who checked us in, Leslie, was very friendly, and the McDonald's breakfast voucher was nice. The only disappointment was that there was no refrigerator in the room, but other than that, everything was great.

Thank you for your review and for considering us such a clean and comfortable place to stay! I am sorry that you did not have a refrigerator in your room during your stay. We would have a Superior King bedroom available that has a microwave and a mini-fridge, as well as an extended desk area in the room! I hope...

I'm putting this one on my list of places to come when I make road trips through this area. Very pleasant and helpful staff, clean rooms, and pet friendly, including a pet area with baggies and a garbage can. Clearly a well-run place.

Another business trip to Erie, pa. Staying at the red roof inn on all of my visits to the area. Megan, the hotel clerk is always very friendly and courteous. She makes me feel like I'm home. The hotel is very clean and quiet. I recommend anyone to stay here when they are in this area.

Megan was working the desk when I checked in, and helped me straighten out my reservation, as I had unknowingly reserved 2 rooms. She also maps and information about the area, reminded me of the free breakfast, and gave me my bottled water for being a RediCard member. I'm always appreciative of Red Roof's pet policy, as I am almost...

I've stayed and always will stay at the Perry Highway Red Roof in Erie PA, when I travel to that destination. I love to see Joyce, my favorite person at the front desk.

Thank you so much for your kind words of praise for our front desk staff Joyce! She is undoubtedly one of the hardest workers that we have here.

I stay here 10-15 weekends per year, and wish I could stay at this location every time I went out of town. They know me by name, always have me in the correct room, and make me feel welcome. Megan has a great attitude and always has a smile on her face. Great job to the entire staff!

I have been staying at this Red Roof for several years. Megan, and all of the staff , have always treated me like I was a relative instead of a customer. The are the best. I stay at various hotel/motels 6 nights per month. None are as friendly or competent as this crew.

Wonderful Hotel... Friendly and helpful staff and Rooms are always clean. Back side of hotel is quieter than the front rooms. Lots of grassy areas to walk pets as well.
