We came in yesterday. Room is really nice, clean and updated. We have a king bed with sleeper sofa. Bed is super comfy and pillows are great. Bathroom big with a big shower. Microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker in room with a flat screen tv. Staff super nice. Since it is Roar on the Shore weekend, They have a special spot just for bikes and a bike wash area with a hose and soap. Breakfast good. Waffles. Sausage. Eggs. Yogurt, fruit, cereal, bagels, bread, muffins, coffee and juice.
Only a few, minor down falls. There is no plugs by bedside tables. And in the shower, there is no place to put soap, shampoo, ect. The water was nice and hot in shower and about no comforters on the bed, is a real plus, hate those things. Some highway noise, but you are right along a interstate. I have a train behind my house, so I don't have problems blocking outside noise. I would recommend a stay here!!
The room was dirty, very dusty for my allergies. Many items in the room didn't work properly or didn't work well. You can here the other guests from your room...........would not want to stay there again!
Arrived on a Sunday Eve to an almost vacant parking lot with many apparent vacancies. Was told the cheapest room available was $129 despite the advertised rate of $64.99 on the digital sign. We were given a room on the third floor with ongoing renovations and the room smelled of smoke. The limited towels were threadbare, no coverlet, no conditioner, and the shower ( no bath) barely reached warm water at the highest point. The floor of the bath was filthy and looked like it needed a decent sandblasting. There were two beds (full size) that were so fare spaced from the side table that connected electronics would not reach. Lamps were unplugged and upon plugging in, the lightbulb didn't work. No DVD player but the refrigerator was at least on its coldest setting. All this after only 3 hours. Hopefully the light of day doesn't bring more issues. The positives ? It's very quiet since most of the rooms are unoccupied and right off the highway. The wifi is useless as others have noted. Did not venture in to the murky looking pool and would have loved the option of a bath.
We stayed at this LaQuinta in Erie as the last stop on our way back to Illlinois after a four week trip to Newfoundland, Canada. Our stay was very pleasant, the location was easy to get to and a nice place to rest before driving the last leg of the trip home.
We visited Erie this past week to go to Presque Isle Downs and tour the area. We chose La Qu7nta based on overall reviews on Trip Advisor. We travel quite a bit and the Advisor is my bible along with the US bedbug registry. We travel with 2 dogs and must chose the best or better among pet friendly. We asked for a room very close to an exit. Our dogs are well traveled but will bark if they see another dog otherwise they are well behaved and well traveled pets. When we arrived the room they were going to put us in room 117 was not ready. We were going to be placed in a room not to terribly far from the front desk. 103 I think. It would not have been good. I could imagine the possibility of other folks in our wing darting out their doors with pooch on lesh. Our Aldo would have shaken the roof with a bark. So we waited and about 45 min later our retreat of room 117 was ready. Perfect, perfect, perfect. It was 2 steps to the first interior door, another 3 to the exit door and there was the grass. Nirvana for pets and us. Nice quiet area behind inn to walk dogs. Other pet owners yield and we do so also. Very nice. Now for the room. It was nice and large and had tasteful neutral decor. There was a table with arm chair but the arm was broken and missing a bolt which we found under the table when looking over the room for any items left prior to check out. The room has some scuffed up wall paper here and there and along the edges of the carpet the carpet is whitish in color due to dust build up. The beds were comfortable but not amazing. The pillows were plentiful per bed but again only so so. The firms were way to firm, the soft not too bad. We just purchased a high end latex mattress so maybe it is not fair to compare but we do stay about 21 nights a year or more in hotels and the bed was on the low end but adequate. The AC unit was odd. It had to be put at 60 degrees with high fan in order to cool the room which i would guestimste at about 70. It ran nonstop and the room became uncomfortably warm from time to time. We kept the drapes closed to facilitate energy efficiency but it was still a struggle to really cool the room, but it was okay. I am very gery heat sensitive and I was comfortable. The bathroom was spotless. The only complaint is there should be a tras can in the bath. There was only 1 small can in the entire room. Now for staff. Everyone was very jice and helpful, from Maggie at check in to Sue on checkout. Housekeeping was super friendly. I had a pleasant experience in that the young asian woman in housekeeping had the most perfect english and understtod what I asked for. This is very rare and frustrating for both parties,
. Housekeeping who cannot understand the patrons make no sense and it can be a challenge at best just to get a bath towel without having to resort to animation and hand gestures. Final thought. We enjoyed our first gisit to Erie and our near perfect accommodations that we decided to stay an extra night. This La Quinta will be our first choice for repeat visits which we now know will definitely be in our future assuming the reviews on Trip Advisor remain consistent. It might be time to do a walk through of each room to check on broken furniture or marred wallpaper etc just to keep it really nice. Its much easier to maintain than to restore. A great stay, nice staff, amazing location stone throw from Interstate and a terrific pet friendly hotel!l
