I needed something affordable at the last minute Labour day weekend and pulled in without checking reviews, though we have stayed in a knights inn before so were'nt under any illusions about standards. The outside needs a good sweep and paint, or the whole place demolishing and rebuilding, it is getting to 'end of life'. However, the room inside was...

Weary from a day of fishing on Lake Erie, we pulled into Knights Inn hoping for a night of rest. As we pulled our two trucks and boats into the parking lot, the residents of the place all came out to take a look and see what we might have to steal. In fear of robbery, we pulled the motor...

WORST hotel stay to date. Only reason we stayed was because my travel mate's GPS pointed us here after she navigated us a half hour past the hotel I had selected. Being desperate for sleep still didn't help. Broken glass on the walkways, stains on the wallpaper, holes on the sheets, and a general musty, moldy odour in the non-smoking...

Yes location was convenient to walk to Beer on the Bay,which is why we came to Erie. Pet Friendly but was fearful leaving pets in room. Some people seemed to be guests while others...

Reserved room at this inn for 1 night. Driving up to the office the property looked like it needed a face lift and total remodel. The room smelled bad, the carpet looked like it was not vacuumed in the corners, air conditioner sounded like a jet. The bathroom had mold on the tile and the toilet had a leak which...

Parking lot and stairs dirty but room ok. Close to theater downtown. No breakfast in am. No coffee until later but one block from McDonald's. Air conditioning fine. Quiet and on Sunday morning heard church bells. But for $89 we expected more value.

If I could give it less stars I would. My boyfriend and I honestly did not even last 20 mintues. We went to Erie on a quick weekend trip and picked this place because of the cheap rates. When we arrived for check-in at 2, we were greeted by a very kind lady behind the counter who explained to me...
