Poor, keep driving
The room was very miminal and not clean. Sheets had sand in them, 2 towels (for a reservation of 4), no hand towels, tv volume did not work, and overall not worth your time/money.

6/10 Good

First checked us into a room that people were staying in. Got our room, new beds and were very comfortable. Had to ask for towels and didn’t receive them until next day. Someone’s old pizza crust was under the bed(yuk) and tv volume only has 2 options- all the way up or muted. Lady who ran the place was an extremely grumpy. However we were only there to sleep so it was fine. Not worth the cost but it was easily accessible to restaurants and attractions.

Filthy rooms
This hotel is filthy. Your feet would be black from walking across the floor in your bare feet. There were knats and flies all over the room. Completely unacceptable for what they are charging a night.

Beautifully remodeled inside. Convenient location. Only suggestion to have hooks in bathroom, hand towels (fluffy tools provided were great), hair dryer and iron. Fridge and microwave were good to have but would have liked coffee/tea provided too even if in lobby.

Erie lodge stay
Was not impressed at all. Paid $170 for torn curtains with staples, remote on the tv didnt work. Asked for extra towels and was told to being old ones back to wash and then they would replace them. Did end up getting one extra towel. Bed covers were stained. Bathroom was nice but no blow dryers.
