This hotel was great to stay at. The front desk staff was ver helpful and very friendly. The rooms were very clean and the bed were very very comfortable. The pool was very clean and it was great that it was heated. The breakfast that was included was amazing. Everything was cooked perfectly and I liked that you could make your own waffles. I also liked that we were able to have out dogs come with us. I would definately stay here again and recommend it to my friends.
We stayed here for two nights on our way back from New York. We were interested in spending time at Presque Isle State Park but didn't want to spend a lot of money after leaving Niagara. This particular Clarion was great for our short stay and we definitely would have stayed longer.
The hotel was a five minute drive (if that) from the entrance to Presque Isle, a minute from Waldameer, and maybe ten minutes from downtown Erie. There were plenty of bars/fast-food type places nearby and the restaurant on-site was decent. Since it was not too far from downtown either, I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to find 'finer' dining either - or as 'fine' as you'll get in Erie, PA.
The hotel was a bit older and had an indoor pool smell that lingered in the air but did not bother us. The room, like the hotel in general, was dated, but it was a decent size and the bed was actually extremely soft and comfortable. The rooms were spread out resort style with multiple entrances to the building. It was convenient as we could park closer to the actual room could come and go/get things from the car more easily.
Breakfast cost around $5 per person for a full hot buffet with pancakes/waffles/eggs/bacon/etc.
I was also very impressed with the sauna/steam room - not something that would have made a difference when booking a hotel room; however, it was clean and comfortable and relaxing.

My flight was late getting in but hotel staff said they would check me in if it got too late so I didn't have to worry about it. When I did arrive after a long day of flying I was happy to find what looked like a one bedroom apartment that even had a door for the bedroom and a dishwasher in the kitchen. It was very comfortable, safe and homey feeling. The staff always responded to any questions or requests I had. Family and friends that visited are planning a stay to be close to the mall for shopping and the hotel includes breakfast and dinner which I didn't realize. I had never seen dinner provided as part of the hotel service before. Dinner is only Monday-Thursday but it worked out great with my schedule. The breakfast/dinner room staff were friendly and were always doing whatever they needed to please. I didn't get her name but the woman on dinner staff was particularly accommodating even though she mentioned she was just learning that shift. Brad at the front desk also seemed to be the go-to guy every time I needed information or had questions.
We have stayed at many Residence Inns before, but this one was exceptional. The room was clean and roomy. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We asked about the Local Wineries and received all the information we needed to visit four of them and taste the wines. We purchased several nice bottles. The social's at night were very nice also. Plenty of food and drink and also friendly staff to talk to. We highly recommend this property to anyone interested in staying in Erie. Also the Splash Lagoon is connected to the hotel. Although we do not have children, it would be a very nice place to consider if you are looking to go there.
This B and B offers everything you can desire in a short stay- complimentary drinks, great quality homemade food (breakfast), large comfortable room, amenities galor, beautiful grounds, and perfect location- close to the beach, close to shopping and wineries. We had a marvelous time. Although we didn't find the owner overly friendly, the host was gracious and sweet and made our stay feel very special. We will definitely be going back.
