I booked this hotel on another site and regretted it from the beginning. I booked it weeks in advance, then after realizing the reviews were probably correct tried to cancel my reservations and they refused. So we stayed because we didn't want to waste our money. The hotel is very old, we had 2 rooms one was decent and the... More

The Bayfront Inn is an absolute mess. Staff is the rudest around, the rooms are dirty and disgusting. I can't believe they are still open. I highly recommend the Glasshouse Inn on West 26th Street. They have always been our first choice , but unfortunately they were booked.

My friends and I went on a shopping trip and needed a place to stay for 1 night. We did not read the reviews for this place or else we wouldn't have stayed there. We were charged 3 times for 1 room. The crappy manager was rude and disgusting. The door was not opening properly, the WiFi did not work... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We have two small children and needed a grown up weekend. We settled on the bay front inn because it was relatively inexpensive and had an outdoor pool. We weren't expecting the Taj Mahal so the fact the place wasn't much to look at wasn't a deal breaker. We started... More

I reserved a king non-smoking room. I called to confirm that the reservation went through as expected, and the person on the phone (who I later learned was the owner), said there were no king rooms and no non smoking rooms. I said that's what I reserved, and then he accused me of making things up. When I said I... More

They were terrible and really rude. I will never go back, rooms were terrible and smelled. Says all children welcome but wants you to separate them if you have more than 3. Worst place in Erie!!! Very accusatory, called us liars because they claimed I didn't mention that I had five children when I booked( which I absolutely did) regardless... More

Ok, let's be real, people - this is not a 5 star luxury resort. If that's what you're expecting, then yes, you will be disappointed. If you're looking for an inexpensive, simple, clean, and comfortable place to stay, then it might be worth your while. No, this motel is not new. No, it does not have a fancy buffet breakfast,...

When we got here I gave this place the benefit of the doubt. Went in to check in and the place smelled to high heaven. Got our room and I wanted to cry. It smelled! The bathroom was awful. No shampoo, conditioner, towels were not soft in the least. This place is old looking and needs redone. We came back... More
