You won't find a better deal in Erie. Hotel is a short drive to Peach St and about an hour from the Grove outlets. Rooms are recently renovated and look very nice. The employees are always happy and helpful. We've been to Erie about 4 times now and we stay here every time.

This is a nice red roof, updated and clean looking. Since,Last time I stay they added some carpet to the room. The few things that buged me was. 1. The icicles hanging from the roof are danerous so keep an eye on them. 2. I stay in a lot of hotels, this is the first that has an envelope to...

Thank you so much for considering us such a nice and clean place to stay! After our initial round of renovations we did add two carpet squares in the entryway of each room so that guests can place or wipe their shoes as they enter the room. I also made a point to speak with our maintenance about the icicles....

Room and property was clean. Check in/out was friendly, and quick. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom door needed maintenance, as it scraped the floor when opening and closing. Room was quiet. Great access from the highway.

We stayed here while traveling because it was pet friendly. Room was clean enough...not perfect but okay. Free breakfast at mcdonalds next door. Very affordable and no added pet fee. Next to interstate but it wasn't noisy. The bed and pillows were not the greatest but, have had worse.

Thank you so much for considering us such an affordable place to stay in the area! We pride ourselves on being able to offer clean rooms and friendly service at competitive prices! I would like to apologize if the bedding was at all uncomfortable. We have new mattresses so I am sure that the frame itself must be the cause...

The Red Roof Inn in Erie PA is my 1st choice for a halfway stop when travelling from Albany NY to Chicago IL and back. It is conveniently located right off of I-90. As a RediCard member I get a very reasonable rate (better than on Trivago) by booking the room directly with RRI. I normally choose a room with...

We had a very quiet and restful stay. Emilly who checked us in was very attentive and made sure all our needs and questions were answered at check in. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. If passing this way again we will definitely stay here.

This was our second stay in a Red Roof in 6 months and both locations were a great stay. Renovated, clean,nice updates( just enough not to have to charge extra money).

I have passed this motel many times on our way to Ohio and never thought about staying here as I have my go to hotels in the area. This time we decided last minute to extend our stay and Red Roof had the best price. I usually do not like staying at motels and was a little wary of how...

We have been staying at this Red Roof Inn location for a number of years now. The front desk staff are consistently pleasant. The room is always clean. Generally it is a quiet place, although there have been instances when guests have let their children run around the hallway. Issues have been resolved quickly and efficiently
