I stayed here with my family while my father was in the hospital. We stayed in the pet friendly section. The hotel did not smell of any pet odors but you could tell that it allowed smoking once upon a time. The rooms were clean, could use a little updating, and the bathrooms were also clean. The hotel offers free...

We always stop at Red roof inn in Erie when we travel from Vermont to Iowa. They have great rates, super clean rooms, and friendly staff. I was able to use ebates to get a percentage back on our stay. The highway can be a little noisy but if you put on some white noise on your phone/pad you will...

Every hotel is different and they range in stars based on room amenities, room size, hotel location, and hotel features. The one factor that we ask all hotels to make constant is that the hotel should be kept clean no matter how nice or dismal the room is outfitted. This is the reason why I gave my rating based on...

I am sorry that your experience was only good enough for that of a road trip hotel and not of a destination hotel. I can assure you your experience was not typical of what we strive to deliver to our guests. We encourage open conversation with all of our guests and do appreciate your honesty. However, I do hope that...

We needed a place to stop on our Thanksgiving trip and picked this place. I agree with those who say this is a nicer Red Roof Inn than typical. The beds were comfortable and I thought the desk setup was nice, although we didn't use it. I would stay here again if I ever found myself here. Only complaint was...

Nice value in Erie! Got a room with 2 double beds, very clean, very quick check in. Fridge, Coffee maker and flatscreen TV in the room.

Nicely updated. I believe all hotels should do away with carpet in their rooms in favour of laminate or otherwise, and they have done just that. Check in and check out was smooth. Checkout here is noon. No pool. No breakfast. Close to restaurants and shopping. Affordable. Very "no frills," but everything was clean and comfortable. We had a fridge...

Have not stayed in a Red Roof Inn in several years and we were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We had a King superior room and stayed Oct. 31st - Nov. 2nd. Honestly this room was terrific.
