This is our second time staying at this hotel on a weekend trip to Erie. The location is super convenient right off the highway but also because there are so many food options for both sit down and Doordash to the hotel. It’s a quick drive down to the water. Joyce is an amazing person to have at the front desk. She’s always smiling! Check in and check out were super quick. Our request for an early check in was easily accommodated as well as room preference. She was able to make recommendations for the area. Our room was super clean, so thank you also to the cleaning staff.

We stayed at this hotel while we were in the process of moving from Edinboro to Erie. In that process, we closed on our home in Edinboro before we could settle everything with our new home in Erie. We could not ask for a better experience while staying with this hotel. The staff was so helpful and friendly and yet very professional. We also had our dog with us during our stay. The hotel has a very nice area for walking our dog and we so understanding when it came to staying with pets. Housekeeping was outstanding. During our stay we had to make frequent trips to check on progress with our new home and details for the house. Members of housekeeping who were comfortable with dogs actually stopped in our room to check up on our dog and say hi to her. The head of housekeeping and RJ were such a friendly face each day, as well and the desk operators and the manager. It truly was a home away from home.

Over the first weekend in June 2022 our organization held a State Convention in Erie. The plans were two years in the making with the hotel location and amenities always a priority for our guests. We were truly not disappointed. The location was beyond convenient, with easy access to Peach Street and variety of shopping venues. Our group required a Hospitality Suite and the conference room they provided was beautiful, spacious and perfect for our meeting and socializing. The rooms were new, clean and very comfortable. The Director of Sales Darlene had been wonderful to work with and made organizing this portion of the event easy. A big thank you to Joyce who seemed to be the smiling face at the front desk for our entire stay. Her patience never waivered. The staff was great, always friendly and will to help meet our needs.

We picked here last minute as it had the best reviews. The reviews weren’t wrong. Alyssa is the star of the show. Last night, she cooked our dinner and served us. Best hotel dinner I’ve had and it came out fast as well. She anticipated our every need, never let our glasses go below half, and was just a joy to talk to. Her name tag said “Assistant General Manager” but she clearly wasn’t afraid to work with her staff and get her hands dirty instead of just sitting in an office like most managers probably would. I saw a review about how bad their food was and I can tell you there’s no truth to that. Our Turkey club and veggies wraps were great! Other people we spoke to were Joyce, Elaine, Quinn, Shawn, and many others. You can tell that Alyssa passes her love for her job onto her staff and treats them well. We will never ever stay at another hotel in Erie. They were packed last night and there’s no doubt as to why! I will recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone I can. We pass through Erie multiple times a year and will be coming back time and time again.

The Holiday Inn Erie is a newer hotel that still has that wet paint smell to it. It's the latest incarnation of the Holiday Inn design. The overall hard product is very nice. So definitely not the roadside Holiday Inn of your youth. The only issues? The soft product. Some missing amenities and the bar/restaurant or complete lack thereof. My guest room didn't a safe. Also missing were some of the usual toiletries: laundry bag in the closet, lotion, mouthwash, and a bottle of water. I went to the front desk and they said they didn't have lotion or mouthwash. They have a bar/restaurant without any alcohol because they don't have a license. How do you open a hotel without a liquor license? They can't even serve beer and wine. That's a huge issue. While they serve food, the food is awful. If I'm being honest, a frozen TV dinner from the grocery store would be better. So until they fix their F&B issues, this is basically a Holiday Inn Express. They aren't even competitive with the Courtyard a block away, as the Courtyard serves better food and has a full bar. I would have no problems returning or recommending the hotel once the F&B is fixed. But until then, it's a very poor value compared to some of the other options.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your dinner as we are always looking for ways to better serve our guests. We are looking forward to obtaining our liquor license and being able to provide that for our guests. Once again thank you for stay and we do hope you will stay with us again in the future.

Our stay here was great! The location is central to many amenities around the area. The check in process with Joyce was quick and amazing. She was pleasant to work with and she made the beginning of our stay wonderful! The room was clean and ready to go. The pool was a bit smaller than we thought, but it was clean and had a beautiful view of the sunset. I would recommend this location to anyone.
