Country Inn and Suites is Erie's newest hotel. It is located off I-90 at exit 24 just 15 minutes from the beautiful Presque Isle State Park and beach, boating and fishing. Come and drive along the Bay Front highway and tour the bicentennial tower, which stands 187 feet and overlooks the city and surrounding areas.

Don't stay!

This hotel was the worst hotel we have ever seen....should not even keep their status! VERY dirty, pool was dirty, hot tub didn't work right, emergency phone in pool area didn't even work!Breakfast attendant didn't keep areas clean. Staff didn't seem to really care about guests needs! Everywhere you look it was falling apart! Dirt was not cleaned up in public areas for the 3 days we were there. Very bad place to stay! Maintence is definitely lacking as is housekeeping...must be bad management!!

Erie stop over

Wife and I stop here every time that we go up to Niagara Falls for an overnight stay. Hotel is located right off of the interstate and close to Splash Lagoon and only one exit down the road is the casino. Breakfast in the morning is always good. Standard amenities like free paper in the morning and pool. If booking, make sure to book the King Suite room, very spacious.

Attention to Detail

The hotel is in a decent location and convenient for me. But the hotel is showing some age and in need of some cosmetic attention. There were dirty dishes left in the hallway when I checked in at 7:00pm. The next morning when I went to the breakfast room, the coffee was cold, if there was any. A couple of times the carafe was empty and there was no attendant in sight.

Not what I was expecting

We went on a winter family vacation to Splash Lagoon. The Hotel was ok, but nothing special. Some cons to the Hotel was that everything we were hoping to use in the hotel room was broken down or very old and outdated. The pool is ok, but the jacuzzi was broken and I was looking forward to sitting and relaxing while the kids played in the pool after a very long trip in the car. They also had a business center with a computer that had a virus and did not have access to the internet. I needed to print out important documents and couldn't, do to no working computer. The beds were not comfortable in our room and sleeping on them was limited as you got very stiff after a few hours of sleep. The breakfast was not too bad, but the lady did an awful job at keeping things stocked during the high traffic time and acted annoyed when I asked her for things that were out of stock, she was quick to disappear when breakfast got busy. In fact many of the nice perks such as coffee and cookies seemed to always be out when I went to get something through out the day. The laundry facility was outdated as the washer and dryer looked like they were from 1980 and sounded it too, and I was even told by the front desk when asked to make change for my dollar bills, was sorry I don't want to run out of quarters. The pros was the location, right across the street from Splash Lagoon and lots of great things to do in the area to keep the kids entertained for a couple of days. I would probably not stay there again, but look into another hotel in the area as there were several all around us.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

I did save a lot of money by staying in a hotel right next to the indoor water-park Splash Lagoon and buying tickets separately compared to the price the lodge was charging for a room and tickets together.
