I stay at the Red Roof in Erie, PA every other week for work and have had nothing but great customer service every visit. One of the employees named Megan has remembered my last name and recently helped me sign up for the RediCard Rewards Membership. The staff are very welcoming!

Very nice rooms with super helpful and friendly staff. Vicky was super helpful even at midnight when I needed some help urgently. She went out of her way to make sure my stay was pleasant, She definitely need a raise! Megan checked me in and was super nice as well. I am very satisfied and will definitely stay here again.

We stopped here as a midway point on a trip to upstate New York. The facility was very clean and welcoming. But what stood out the most was the incredible service, especially Megan at the front desk. She went above and beyond to meet our needs, and was so friendly and accommodating. We were very impressed by her professionalism and... More

This place is perfect for a nice clean room with a breakfast. This is our second time here and we will be back. Joyce at the front desk was nice. If you need access to the lake, downtown, or the casino this is a good command post.

The hotel is easy to find, right off the highway and next to McDonalds. We arrived at 2 AM and the desk clerk was attentive and alert. Based on her positive attitude, you would have thought it was 2 in the afternoon. The hotel looked and smelled clean. The bed was comfortable. Negatives, breakfast was a voucher for the fast...

Can't complain about anything. Clean room and bathroom, comfortable king-size bed, good WiFi, free breakfast, helpful and friendly staff (kudos Leslie), and good free parking. Just off the highway so easy access. We would definitely stay again if we were in this neck of the woods.
