Great clean rooms. Free ice and breakfast! Joyce went above and beyond helping our group print fishing licenses. We stay at the Green Roof Inn for all our Erie trips. The fire pit was stocked with firewood and they continue to improve things. Was pleasantly surprised to hear they added outdoor heater to the fish cleaning station!

If you're looking for an clean, affordable place to stay then look no further!! Joyce and the staff at The Green Roof Inn do a great job in making sure your stay is a good one. This was our first time fishing Steelhead Alley and it certainly won't be our last.

I finally had a chance to stay at this place last week after hearing much about it. My fishing trip wasn't productive, mostly due to the unseasonably warm weather, but I still had a good time thanks in great part to this hotel. The location is great for fishing ANY portion of Elk Creek which you can reach within 15-20...

Clean, well kept and a great value. The staff was very friendly. The price was fantastic. One of the best kept secrets in the Erie area. If you are going for wine or Steelhead this is the place to stay. Will stay there again.

My wife and I were traveling recently and we weren't having much luck finding a reasonably priced place to stay in the area when we called this place on a whim. It was actually after closing time when we called but the desk person graciously gave us the info and waited for us to arrive. Once we walked into our...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Green Roof Inn. The staff was very friendly, our room was clean, and even with the max. pet fee of $50; we saved over $750 compared to the next closest priced competitor. We have found a new home away from home when we visit Erie, PA!

We truly appreciate when our guests take the time to review our motel. It helps us to see what we need to work on, but better yet, it shows guests who have not stayed with us that we care about our facility and how we treat our guests.

Clean, affordable with a exceptional staff! Ronda went above and beyond getting our room ready. Great selection of breakfast food in the morning and bonus covered pavilion with outdoor fire ring stocked with free wood! Combine this with free cooler ice, you have the best in class experience! I have paid 3 times as much and gotten far less satisfaction!

Sweet little country motel perfect for fishermen and folks with dogs. Our kitchenette was spacious, clean and fully furnished. Lots of grassy areas for the dogs. Lovely people and great value if you like the peace and quiet of the country instead of impersonal chain hotels. Continental breakfast included.
