The staff was nice and helpful. The pool area was clean and updated. The rooms were very outdated.

Very good location, great bar and breakfast was delicious. Friendly people, comfortable beds

We stayed here with our granddaughters, ages 6 & 8, because of its proximity to Presque Isle and its indoor pool. The staff were very helpful, friendly, and cooperative, without exception. The pool area is clean and very attractive. The double double-bed room was small but adequate for quiet play. Some carpeted areas show wear. We were happy with our visit and plan to stay there again.

Myself and 2 kids just wanted to get away for the weekend. It was great. We swam pretty much all day and enjoy the restaurant on site for dinner. The staff is absolutely great. Every single person was so nice and approachable. They all seemed to always be smiling. It made the trip really great.

I paid the full fee at reservation. The next day I find an unauthorized extra charge. I stayed only for one night, absolutely did not break anything, not sure what is going on!

Real nice no parking fees good free breakfast room was great air conditioning was great close to presque isle come to them and you’ll like it

The hotel is definitely nothing fancy. The pool was pretty dirty and they did not supply any towels. The room seemed clean but had a very strange smell.. The sheets smelt like BO. The pillows are HORRIBLE so if you stay here make sure you bring your own pillow!!!

We had a great stay. The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. I did get lost trying to find breakfast but that's okay because breakfast was excellent! Will stay again.

Nice hotel and nice staff. The kids had fun in the pool. Easy access to the rooms. Hotel is clean and spacious.

I didn’t even get to stay with my family I drove 2 hours and 23 minutes and had to stay somewhere else. I was in a area I didn’t know of so I wasn’t pleased. And I spent way more money than I wanted.

This hotel needs serious renovations. My mattress is older than I am. Overall comfortable but not worth $100 or $60.

Decent hotel especially or price. Erie hotels run on the expensive side for some reason especially during the holidays. This hotel was reasonably priced.

Front desk staff was impatient and rude to us during check in. Also, when we went to the pool there were a few other guests in the pool so we got in. A few minutes later a staff member came to the pool and barked orders at everyone to get out of the pool. Every other hotel we have stayed at before when the pool hours are over the staff will at least let the adults stay in to enjoy the pool for a little while longer. The staff was extremely rude to everyone. If my husband and I are spending this much money to stay at this hotel, we should be able to use the pool for a little while longer. Tip: they charge you for breakfast at this hotel! But, the breakfast staff was very nice!

It was a very clean, and the in door pool was very nice. And loved that there was a sauna there too. Great location! I would stay again!

Great location good value no problems with check in/out. Would stay again.

The Good: Front-desk staff, housekeeping: all thumbs-up. The in-house restaurant was a giant surprise. Food, service, and atmosphere were lovely. And was even child-friendly. The pool is another wonderful surprise. Nicely kept up, decorated spacious glassed-in space with warm saltwater? pool and nice hot tub. The So-So: Room was moderately sized. Some wear to carpets, curtains. But no noticeable stains or dirt. For the purpose of a family stay for a decent price, this hotel is wonderful. We will definitely return. The pool, close location to the State Park, restaurant, (and did I mention the cool gem store directly across the street? Kids will LOVE it.)...these all MORE than compensate for a moderate room.

Just an overnight before heading to Edinboro for our son's college registration. Nice staff but hotel was old and really big. We had to park around back where lots of people were standing at the doors, smoking (at 11pm), which was kind of creepy. The lighting wasn't that great back there. If we had stayed, planning to do things in Erie, we may have had a better experience. The staff was very nice and things were clean but in need of updating. Location was about 15 miles away from Edinboro... highway was close, so not that bad of a trip.

We only stayed there one night but it was so close to the lake that if we did not had to keep going we would have stayed and enjoy the lake for another day. The room felt a little musty but it did not felt too dirty. It was a little dated but not too bad.

Everything was just as expected. The room was clean, staff was extremely helpful and the location was just where I needed to be. Overall a great experience and I will return on my next trip to Erie.
