Hotel "management" actually broke into our room and snooped around for several minutes on the evening of June 17 at 7:15pm after believing that we a dog in our room (family members paid for a second dog friendly ADJOINING room). "Management" waited until we left for dinner and 15 minutes AFTER we invited them into our room to clear up this misunderstanding to enter our room without our knowledge or consent. We only know this because one of our family remained behind and witnessed and documented the incident through the adjoining chained door. We have already contacted our credit card company and will dispute any charges assessed by Lake Erie Lodge. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT STAYING AT LAKE ERIE LODGE COULD SUBJECT YOU TO LOSS OF YOUR PRIVACY!

This place looked nice in the pictures, but beware. The rooms are very dated and dirty. there were stains on the sheets and the showers didn't drain in more than one room. The staff that runs this place live in a mobile home in the back of motel and when they get up in the morning 700 715 730 they make coffee in the lobby. So you you never know when your going to get service for the so called complimentary breakfast. Also I think a good many rooms are occupied by permanent guest. Really a shady situation.

The good part is the person that we dealt with at the motel was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. She was very busy bouncing between front office, housekeeping, and we even saw her cleaning the pool. The bad is that our room was sub-par. The sheets were clean and fresh, however, the shower liner was moldy and had long hair on it. Thankfully, the rest of the bathroom was very clean, as were the towels. As mentioned in another review, the room was dark and the carpet was filthy. I could not wait to get out of there. This was probably the least safe I have ever felt in a place of lodging and I did not get a decent night's rest. If you have another option, you might want to consider it seriously.

There is no internet in the room. There is free internet in the lobby. The room is very dark and the carpet is filthy. My wife had white socks on and after walking around the room, the pair of white socks had turned to black color. Hot water in shower is good and hot. Had free breakfast only on weekend.

This hotel is not for the faint of heart, but it has a few bits of charm that almost balance out the really significant drawbacks. First of all - the hotel prides itself on being clean - which is possible if compared to other hotels in the area, but was iffy at best when we stayed; particularly the carpet which turned the bottoms of our feet black. (The sheets were nice and clean - and very soft!). There were a few milipedes that crawled out of the bathroom drains - and the drains were very slow to drain (But great water pressure!) The deadbolt on the door was broken as well. On the awesome side: the staff there is SPECTACULAR and hugely friendly - and are the only reason I would consider staying there again. Weekend bonfires near the really really clean pool - wow! The one other drawback is the owner - who refused to refund me a $45 late checkout fee even though we checked out on time. (His reasoning was that I made the reservation over the phone and all sales are final - what?!) Beware! Given all the drawbacks, I find it curious even to myself that I would actually consider staying there again....but I just might. It is a great location at not too crazy a price.

Have stayed every summer for several years. I know what to expect at the lodge. Not a 5 * hotel but defiantly good enough. Staff were pleasant and hard working. Pool is kept very clean and the bon fire is a fun addition to the trip. Close to many local attractions. Enjoyed our get away to Erie.

We had a terrible experience with the Inn down the road so coming to this place was great. Rooms were decent, pool was great and the staff was excellent! Friendliest place in Erie and the price was also great! Definitely will be returning customers!!

The most disgusting place I have ever been in my life. There is mice running around in rooms. There is mold inside the walls and they just paint over the spots so I definitely would say be careful with children it is not safe at all!. The offer free continental breakfast that's a lie they do not at all! They wouldn't barley give us new towels for our room, also was trying to make us pay for every role of toilet paper. Was compiling about us getting coffee in the office a lady took her creamer and said you can't use this because I pay for it every month. A health inspector needs to come out here these people are ridiculous!! Our bed sheets also had stains on them and a buddy of mine had like bites on his body so I definitely think they have bed bugs. Its just not healthy at all to stay there. I recommend you just keep going until you find the next hotel. A They also only have WiFi in the office no wear else

Very dirty, old, run down motel. Like something out of a scary movie. Carpets are all stained, chairs are stained. Bathroom is tiny and old. Wouldn't go back if you paid me. Worth it to Pay extra to actually sleep in a clean room somewhere else.

This was the worst experience of our lives. The owner does not know good customer service. How this place is still in business is amazing. They had trouble finding our reservation that we had a confirmation number for. DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL.. STAY AWAY. Cheap for a reason.
