Very clean, and comfortable bed. Very clean room. Friendly staff. Excellent value for the price you pay. Includes breakfast at McDonald's and 2 bottles of water. You won't find a better deal in the area. Red Roof Inn is a short drive from Peach Street where you can do all sorts of shopping, with tons of restaurants to choose from....

My wife chose this location as the first stop on the way to Florida and the last stop on the way back. The rooms were modern, well appointed and well ventilated ( no musty odour). The front desk staff were efficient and courteous and were well prepared for our arrival. A continental breakfast would have been nice. But a voucher...

My boyfriend and I have travelled to Red Roof multiple times and would never hesitate to recommend. The superior rooms have been updated and are worth paying a little bit extra for. They have a desk area, a mini fridge and safe and the beds are comfy. Bathrooms are smaller but overall it is clean, bright very well kept. It's...

Thank you so much for allowing us to be you number one choice of hotel in Erie!

We are honored that your mother was more fond of our hotel than the pricier alternative one exit down as well! We...

You won't find a better deal in Erie. Hotel is a short drive to Peach St and about an hour from the Grove outlets. Rooms are recently renovated and look very nice. The employees are always happy and helpful. We've been to Erie about 4 times now and we stay here every time.

This is a nice red roof, updated and clean looking. Since,Last time I stay they added some carpet to the room. The few things that buged me was. 1. The icicles hanging from the roof are danerous so keep an eye on them. 2. I stay in a lot of hotels, this is the first that has an envelope to...

Thank you so much for considering us such a nice and clean place to stay! After our initial round of renovations we did add two carpet squares in the entryway of each room so that guests can place or wipe their shoes as they enter the room. I also made a point to speak with our maintenance about the icicles....

Room and property was clean. Check in/out was friendly, and quick. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom door needed maintenance, as it scraped the floor when opening and closing. Room was quiet. Great access from the highway.

We stayed here while traveling because it was pet friendly. Room was clean enough...not perfect but okay. Free breakfast at mcdonalds next door. Very affordable and no added pet fee. Next to interstate but it wasn't noisy. The bed and pillows were not the greatest but, have had worse.

Thank you so much for considering us such an affordable place to stay in the area! We pride ourselves on being able to offer clean rooms and friendly service at competitive prices!

The Red Roof Inn in Erie PA is my 1st choice for a halfway stop when travelling from Albany NY to Chicago IL and back. It is conveniently located right off of I-90. As a RediCard member I get a very reasonable rate (better than on Trivago) by booking the room directly with RRI. I normally choose a room with...
