“Marriott Frequent Stayer...Overpriced, Partially Upgraded and No Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

I stay with Marriott, 90% Courtyard, throughout North America, an average of 3 days per week (every week!). A severe t-storm took me off I-90 and into this location. I was surprised at the price. Not commensurate with the area. The lobby had the recent "Bistro" upgrade Marriott has introduced, which was great to see, but the room was drab and dreary. The TV was an old tube model, the walls were barren and the bedding was average. I could have stopped at the Red Roof Inn and received the same level of service. This is the first Marriott that I've EVER given a bad review.

Overall a very clean and hygienic place to stay. We stayed in a room with a king sized bed which had great pillows and clean sheets. There was an L-Shaped Sofa that had the option of turning into a bed as well. To make things even better, we had a 3-sided fireplace along with jacuzzi. Closet size was great as well. Only negative were the children running across the hallway loudly with no adult supervision. As well as how crowded the pool could get at times. Other than that, we had an A-1 experience.

This hotel is also located conveniently. Close to many restaurants and shopping.

This is a nice hotel that is close to the casino and many restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful, although the hotel shuttle driver stopped to do some hotel business on the way to the casino. The room was clean but even at Orbitz lower rate was a little overpriced. The furniture was a little worn and TV was circa 1995. The bed was comfortable and room amenities were fairly standard. Lobby bistro was very expensive, $7 for a canadian beer. Overall a pleasant stay, but I wouldn't pay rack rate to stay again.

This hotel gets the job done. It's a nice comfortable place to stay. Has a lot of balcony rooms which are great. Service was great on all levels. The lobby has been redone but the rooms desperately need a complete makeover. Just a new hairdryer would be an upgrade!! Overall good place to stay just know the room might be a bit outdated.

We were here the last full weekend of August. We were on our way to Indiana to take our daughter to college and decided to swing into Erie to see our son who was already at his college. When looking on line for a hotel in Erie I was shocked at the prices for the rooms. After all this is Erie, not exactly a resort town. I think that there is some price fixing going on in this town. Anyways, I called the hotel directly and told them that I noticed on line that there was plenty of vacancy for the evening that we wanted. I told them what I was able to get at another hotel an hour away and could they match this? They were unable to match that price but did come down $40.00 off the AAA rate, so we went ahead and stayed here. The staff at the hotel was great and the room was clean. The hotel was conveniently located. What made this hotel extra nice was the bed. Super comfortable! Much more than most hotels. I would recommend this hotel, but really would like to see a reduction in prices at all the Marriotts and Hiltons located in Erie. Their prices are rather high for the area. Also, in my opinion, the breakfast at Courtyard should be included in the price. We opted not to eat here and went to the Cracker Barrel next door and had a better meal for what the Courtyard was charging for a breakfast sandwich. All in all a decent place to stay. Nice staff, clean rooms, nice lobby, and a great bed.

Room Tip: If you think the price is too high on the internet, call the hotel and negotiate.

I had a huge room with Jaccuzzi and king bed. Very clean room, it was lovely. The breakfast was not included which is dissapointing, but overall, I recommend.

We booked two nights at this Marriott. Price was over $200.00 a night. When, we booked our reservation. It was for a King Size. To our surprise it was a Queen size bed. We questioned it to the reservationist. She said it was standard for hotel regulations. The room
furniture in the room was very old. Coffee stains on the walls. Which, we asked them to clean up . Which they did. I was surprised that this Marriott Courtyard was to Marriott standards. They do have a nice lobby, but as soon as you get to the room. Disappointment! None of the ice machines really worked too. Had to go to certain floors to get ice. We had to go to three floors to get a half bucket of ice. We've been loyal customers for over 25 years with Marriott. This was the worst experience we've have.
