Stayed at Red Roof Inn in Erie Pa. We had a short trip to Erie and had a great experience there. From booking to leaving we had the best stay ever. We also were given breakfast coupons for MCDonalds. next door. They gave us an upgraded room so we could be on the first floor.

Found this hotel and the price was great! Checked in and room was clean and comfortable. The stay was wonderful and quiet. I would like to acknowledge Joyce at the front desk for being so good to us and answering any questions we had. We will be back again for sure!

This was our first stay at the Red Roof Inn and I was totally impressed and would not hesitate to stay here again. We had our dog and everything was great. They did not have a breakfast but they gave free voucher for McDonald's breakfast.

We have become fans of the Red Roof Inns. They are always close to the highway and of course they love dogs! This hotel does not have breakfast options, so you get a coupon for McDonalds which is in the same parking lot. The rooms are big enough for dogs and couples. The rooms have fridges and microwaves, plus flat...

Thank you so much for taking to the time to write such a nice review! We are very fortunate to have a location that's so easily visible and accessible for our highway travelers. If the traffic noise is ever cumbersome, please let us know so that we might place you into a rear facing room which would provide a more...

Positive surprise, staff really made an effort that we enjoyed our stay. Everything went smoothly from check inn to check out and breakfast at McDonalds next door. Room was clean and it served its purpose perfectly as we were just looking for a place to get good sleep. Only minus was that walls were thin so we could here people...

The room is clean & the property well maintained. They don't have all the extras that higher priced hotels have, but have all you need for a comfortable stay.

Excellent value, very clean and comfortable. We had a room with king size bed. Room was large enough for us to be comfortable. We do not smoke but thought the area outside set up for smokers should be copied elsewhere. It had amenities to make people comfortable and by doing this it helps keep the grounds clean. Management here should...

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our property! We were very fortunate to be one of the first (that we know of) to have a pavilion built from the ground up.

We spent an evening here and were quite pleased at the clean modern room and comfortable bed. Our room was bit small with 1 king size bed, but it was plenty big enough for the two of us. It had some nice touches like outlets on the desk lamp base and outlets on one of the night stands. Other rooms...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Even though it is a simple gesture I can assure you it's a much appreciated one! We as well are happy that you would definitely stay with us again! For the size of the room, we do have a Superior King which I believe you would find even more comfortable!...

I rate this a 5 because we were so surprised at how nice it was. These lower price chains have a wide range of quality and cleanliness across their various properties. We were simply price shopping for a place to lie for the night and this was the least expensive place with good ratings. It surpassed, by a mile, our...

We checked in late at night and Joyce was just lovely. They had the room so we were lucky to receive an upgrade to a king bed which turned out to be one of the cleanest rooms we've ever stayed in.
