Before making our reservation I neglected to see that the hotel was "pet friendly". So when we checked in I requested a pet free room and was told that it was a pet friendly establishment and all rooms were pet available but cleaned with care. I have pet allergies and immediately upon entering the room could smell dog!! Free breakfast...

Thank you for taking the time to complete a Tripadvisor review! While I do wish that we would have been able to provide you with a problem free stay, I do appreciate the opportunity to address any issues you experienced during your stay. While it is true that we are a pet friendly hotel, we are also very people friendly...

My husband and I stayed there two night with our dog. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the room was very clean and comfortable. The rooms have been remodeled with laminate flooring and have no carpet which is awesome for people who have allergies and travel with pets. I would definitely stay there again and plan to stay...

This was our preferred overnight place when taking our son to & from his college. The staff is The BEST. This time we had the pleasure of meeting Mike, the overnight manager. Helpful, personable, and just fun to talk to. Extra towels, extra pillows, you need 'em, he got them for you.

The room was clean and recently remodeled. Remember if you don't use the in room safe you don't have to pay for it. Just mention on checkout to remove the safe cost. We have been staying at Red Roof Inns because they are inexpensive and pet friendly. No frills but the bed is comfortable.

Thank you for completing a Tripadvisor review! While I do wish we could have provided you with a problem free stay, I do appreciate that Red Roof Inn is your hotel of choice when travelling!

We overshot the entrance to Red Roof Inn and spent a few minutes before we came back to where we should have turned. The entrance is shared with McDonald's ... immediately north of I-90 on the east side of Perry Hwy. Lexie made the check-in experience a pleasure. She was again there for check-out, with the same result. We received...

Thank you for giving our hotel a chance while you were in town! I am glad to hear that you were pleasantly surprised by your experience with us! However, I guess this means that we have to work a little bit harder in getting the word out about our hotel! Tripadvisor has become very influential in improving our online reputation....

I like the new Red Roofs. They provide solid value with no frills (or costs). The only thing they're missing is a fitness room and a continental breakfast. The first I seldom use in a one night stay and the second is usually a pass in a bargain hotel. This unit has excellent staff, is very clean and convenient to...

My wife and I stay at this Red Roof 4 or 5 times a year. It is an excellant value. The rooms are always clean and quiet. On our most recent visit, Joyce checked us in and checked us out. She was very friendly and helpful. She asked if I needed a map of the area. At other hotels, I...

Have stayed at this Red Roof several times in past years when traveling through Erie with our pet and have always been happy. The experience at this Red Roof continues to improve.
