Great place, great location. Clean room, excellent service from
Check in to check out. I left my purse at the rooftop restaurant Oliver’s (which has very good food, beverages and service as well!). I didn’t realize it until early morning and a wonderfully positive and helpful hotel representative named Lindsey (and Halle who was working with her) found it for me. I cannot thank you enough Lindsey!! Five stars across the board, would definitely stay here again:)

This hotel gets good reviews for good reason. It delivers good value, is decently located, and can handle peak tourist season; which can include G-League basketball teams, hockey players, and outlet shopping groups. Staff are very, very friendly and helpful. There is plenty of parking, and there are stores and restaurants within walking distance. The pool and fitness areas are nicely appointed and kept clean. The room I stayed in was very large, with an excellent t.v., and plenty of room. Now for the negatives. The breakfast area gets very cramped very quickly, and options are pretty limited. Also, the same lounge/breakfast area was overtaken for two nights by a large group of women shoppers in the evening, so nobody else could access the space to enjoy the free coffee, save by the fireplace. Even worse - and this isn't just at this hotel - what is it about idiot hockey parents when they take their kids to tournaments? This is coming from a Canadian who avoids Canadian hotels in winter for this reason. The parents drink by the pool or in their rooms, while their children run amok in the hallways and other public areas. In our case, staff at the hotel did not do enough to curtail these shenanigans. They actually didn't step in until things became dangerous, as the kids were running outside to dive in the snow in their bathing suits and then run back into the hotel. Seriously. How does this behaviour get condoned? And I really liked the staff and Managers, at this hotel, but this was unacceptable to our group, who were disrupted constantly by the noise. I don't expect hockey parents to understand how they are disrupting other paying people, but hotel management needs to be proactive with these reservations, and make sports teams understand was is acceptable and what isn't. It marred what should have been a more positive experience.

We always stay at Hampton Inns / Hilton Hotels. Over the years we have rarely had any problems or complaints, they are always clean and you know what you can expect. We use the Hilton app to find best rates and most convenient location. This Hampton Inn is located right off highway and there are plenty of gas stations and restaurant choices nearby.

We stayed at this hotel last night. First impressions were very good. Clean lobby, fresh coffee and friendly staff. Our room was nice and clean, beds very comfortable. No complaints on any of the above. I guess what bugged me was that our room rate was over $100 and I had to go down to the lobby and ask for hair conditioner. Bathroom amenities were sparse, only one bar of soap and one small shampoo in the bathroom, not the norm with other Hampton Inns we’ve stayed at. Also, due to COVID there is no breakfast, understandable but we were given a bag with a bottled water, a pre-wrapped dried up stale muffin, an old hard orange that couldn’t be peeled and a granola bar. The “breakfast” was a real disappointment, especially for the price of the room. At the Holiday Inn Express the night before we were offered full bathroom amenities and the breakfast included an egg/sausage biscuit, yogurt, and a fruit cup and bottled water, all COVID friendly for basically the same room rate. It seems to me that the Hampton inn isn’t really trying to keep their customers during this time of COVID where the Holiday Inn is. I won’t go back to the Hampton Inn for that reason.

Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate your comments about our wonderful staff and rooms. We continue to maintain our high quality of guest rooms and friendly service during these times. We have opened most of our amenities including our pool, fitness center and business center. As you experienced, we do continue to offer the breakfast to go bags but hope that we will be adding variety in the near future. The front desk is stocked with a variety of extra items for our guests including conditioner, lotion, shower caps, vanity kits, toothbrushes, toothpaste ect. We are happy to provide these when requested. I appreciate that you have chosen to go elsewhere during this time but hope that you will give us another chance when we finally do open our breakfast. You certainly can not go wrong at Hampton Inn Erie South with the friendly service and guest room/public area cleanliness. Thank you

This Hampton is clean (like most Hampton's I've stayed at) and comfortable. The rooms are spacious. The staff was awesome, friendly, helpful and accommodating to your needs. It is located close to many restaurants including fast foods, sports bars and family dining. Walmart and other grocery stores are very close too. The Mall is a couple of miles away (and no sales tax). We were across the street from the Erie bank Sports Complex which made it super convenient for our AAU basketball team. They have accessible rooms, but no accessible bath tub chairs or seat. The accessible bathroom was very spacious with grab bars next to the commode and sink. The staff continuously sanitized, and they had sanitizing wipes at the elevator entrances and exits. Very nice stay.

We love when our regular guests stay with us again and again. Our guests feel like they are coming home and we are just as happy to have our "family" come visit us. Our Wednesday reception is definitely a nice treat especially for those that do not know that we have it. An unexpected delight. It is from 5:30 to 630 and we have beverages and a light snack (until the food is gone, so get there earlier than later). We hope that you will visit us again in the near future.

Excellent hotel in a great location, with friendly and helpful staff. My family and I stayed here for a getaway weekend in Erie and found the hotel perfectly suited for our needs. Our room was clean with a modern, efficient layout. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My son enjoyed the indoor, heated pool and although I didn’t use the gym, it seemed to have everything you’d need for a good workout, such as equipment, weights, etc. My family also appreciated the complimentary breakfast each morning.

The location is close to the main boulevard with the mall, restaurants and main shopping area, and a 15 minute drive to the Zoo and a 30 minute drive to Presque Island State Park. Driving in and out of the hotel is also very easy.

After spending two nights I have some advice regarding rooms:
1) Rooms on the first floor are convenient, but you may hear sounds from the lobby.
2) Rooms facing the front of the hotel will hear less noise from the highway nearby.

Overall we had a great stay and will choose this hotel again for our trips to Erie.

The room itself was comfortable and spacious enough; however, there were some issues. The door lock did not work with the digital key, as verified by the staff; physical keys had to be used (a minor inconvenience but slowed moving in). Strangely, at 5am there was no cold water in either shower or sink; only hot water in the shower, and a choice of warm or hot water in the sink. At 6:30am as we were leaving, both shower and sink had cold water available. The bathroom was spacious enough but there were no towel bars.

Stayed here for essential travel when moving from one state to another during the COVID-19 pandemic. Shelly at the front desk is absolutely amazing - the nicest and most hospitable hotel employee I’ve ever met (she should get a raise). She told me about COVID precautions the hotel is taking and gave me a very helpful directory of area restaurants and how they were handling takeout/delivery. My room was nicely renovated and very clean. After a long drive, Shelly and this Hampton Inn allowed me to get a good dinner delivered followed by a restful night’s sleep. Highly recommend!

When we were there it was floors 3 and 4, but I assume they will move down when those are completed. Not sure when they will finish but the hotel should tell you.
