We spent one night here. We won't be going back. The hotel is undergoing renovations and is in a state of disarray. I totally understand that and was ok with it. What totally turned me off is the room next door had probably a dozen people/kids staying in it. They were out of control. They had little toddlers running down...

I think this place needs to finish updating before they rent rooms. Our room reeked of smoke. No hot tub. Lobby under major construction. We stop in this area often on road trips and will not stay here again, unfortunately. There were holes in the screen and the AC unit had particles from construction or something in it.

To be fair the Hotel is under new management and under renovations, however, this was one of the worst hotels at which I have stayed. The carpeting was ripped and torn, the ice machine was broken on the 2nd floor, the breakfast was the worst I have had at any hotel/motel I've stayed. The room size was spacious, and the...

I booked this hotel for a 1-night stay with my family of 3. And I am so glad it was only for one night. The hotel is being renovated as other reviews have mentioned, but wow was I disappointed. Most particularly in our room. It reeked of cigarette smoke even though it is supposed be a "non-smoking" hotel. We are...

We planned a last minute trip and booked a different hotel via a discount site. Since they don't tell you the name until after booking we had a failed find. The place we booked had nothing but negative and awful reviews. Wasn't about to take my cold there. Needed to find a room last minute and booked this one in...

We stayed at the Solstice in Erie on May 13 & 14. The rooms were very clean. The hotel is being renovated. They have an indoor pool. Splash Lagoon is close by. Many restaurants in the area. We would like to recognize the hard working man that was working at the breakfast buffet on Sunday, May 15.

Beautiful hotel. Some of the other guests were very loud, screaming and fighting in the hall and smoking in their room, causing smoke alarms to go off in the middle of the night, which was dealt with by staff immediately. Stayed here about a year ago before it switched over, total transformation. Breakfast was hot and fresh. Room was spotless....

Getting into our hotel we noticed the hallways were dirty. The room was worse. Thick stiff visible dust on curtains and light fixtures. Corners of carpeting was never vacuumed. The couch had filth between the cushions - never cleaned. I asked for the GM the next morning to discuss the filth, but there was not one available. I was told...

The empty parking lot should have been our clue. We never did get a remote control that worked, housekeeping didn't come, we had to ask for breakfast items, and coffee & hot water were never hotter than lukewarm. The staff acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us stay there. There are lots of hotels in Erie,...
