Very hot room and very cold coffee

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 25, 2015
Avalon was unable to activate the AC so my room was absolutely stifling. I had to sleep with the windows open and the street was noisy. I indicated I didn't need clean sheets daily so the maid also decided not to make the bed. The breakfast is the same daily and is terrible. The coffee was cold. When I asked for hot coffee, the waitress said, That's as hot as it's gunna git honey. The honey thing only works if the service is good and you're being quaint. She said it sarcastically and nasty. That answer is so wrong on so many levels. I would never ever stay there again. The front desk people were remarkable nice.

Stay Away

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 29, 2015
There NOTHING positive about my stay at the Avalon. The decor was right out of the 60's. The bed sheets and towels would not even make decent rags. The mattresses had to be decades old and were on squeaky old box springs. Wall paper was peeling everywhere. Stains were all over the carpeting. The place was very noisy. This place needs to gutted and fully renovated. Heck I didn't even have a remote AND they charged me over $100. I could go on, but you hopefully you get my point.

Pretty average

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 21, 2015
For the price ($100 a night), this place is pretty shabby. Rooms are badly in need of updates, carpets are stained throughout and HVAC in room was below average at best (set thermostat to 50 degrees just to get air moving). Free breakfast was carb-heavy and no eggs or breakfast meats in sight--told the cook was away so just cold foods. I guess none of the three available wait staff knew how to fry up bacon....?

Just OK

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 29, 2013
I did not like the full size beds. The hotel looked like it had been very nice at one time, but it is in need of an upgrade.

Horrible experience

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 26, 2011
First when we arrive there was no one to help with our laugage we have to carryn everything w/o help from any of the staff. The picture from the web site was decieving the room is nothing like the picture. the room needs painting, the matress was torn they use safety pin to hold it together. the linen was not iron,it looks like some one just take the linen out of the dryer and throw it on the bed, the bed was very uncomfortable. If I was not tired from ttraveling, and the place was not close to the hospital conference I would have left the same day. the . Over price for its condition. They advertice for restaurant that non existent. My company recommended for us not to stay at this hotel but we did not recieve the list of hotel they recommended on time. I will never ever recommend this hotel to any body.

Only Stay Here For Location

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 9, 2010
Well from reading several awful reviews, we still decided to stay here because of location. This was an overnight girls getaway. Lake during day, Bars in walking distance at night. This hotel is in need of a MAJOR renovation. I think the maid only changed the sheets before we checked in. Candy wrapper on chair, stains all throughout the carpet, dirty shower, dust everywhere, greasy fingerprints on the bedboard, thin walls, mouldy window, No where to park as lot was full. They should not charge over $100 for a room. The only nice thing was the lobby area. Luckily we didnt spend that much time in the room!

Old and Run down

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 2, 2010
This hotel was pretty bad. It made me wish we had booked a cheaper room at the Red Roof Inn or Motel 6. The hotel is very old and it shows in the decor and facilities. My boyfriend said the room smelled musty (the only time I'm thankful to have a cold and no sense of smell) so we turned on the A/C in hopes it would help. You only get the option of on/off with the A/C despite a knob that might fool you into thinking you have control over the actual temperature. The towels were scratchy and cheap, though thankfully clean. There wasn't even a pen or notepad in the room. The telephone had instructions for a wake-up call but, when set, it went off an hour later than the requested time. Luckily the funeral we were in town for didn't start until later in the afternoon or it could have caused us big problems. When coming and going, there were quite a few rowdy fellow travelers and I wondered if the cheap price or the proximity to downtown bars and baseball field were factors in drawing some shady customers. Hotel staff weren't overly friendly but not rude either. I wouldn't choose to stay here again though it could have been worse. At least the bathroom looked clean. Plus we got a view of the fireworks after the ballgame. It's in the heart of downtown where local businesses are trying to revitalize the neighborhood. There are some good restaurants in the area. I'd recommend 1201 Kitchen for something different and delicious. The bottom line is this hotel was one of very few with available rooms to fit our last minute need. Back in its heyday as a Hilton, I'm sure this was a great place to stay.

Entertainment hint

There's lots to do nearby. You can walk to the Erie Playhouse, Warner Theater, SeaWolves baseball, convention center, Jr's comedy club and a bunch of restaurants/bars/nightclubs in the area. At the bottom of State Street (10 blocks down) is Dobbins Landing and the Bicentennial Tower with great views of the lake.
