The Econo Lodge in Erie, PA is a great value for the money. It's a budget hotel, with some pretty nice amenities.
My sister and I spent the night in a double room with comfortable beds, a mini refrigerator, microwave, and TV for $80. The bathroom only has a shower, but water pressure is great. My parents were in a "suite" that had slightly better decor and a jacuzzi tub. With their AAA discount, they also paid $80 a night. Breakfast is included in the price - cold cereal, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, waffles, toast, juice, coffee/tea. Wi-fi is free, too.
The hotel has a fitness center and a pool decorated in a faux-Caribbean style. It's competing with a Holiday Inn Express across the street that has a water park attached to it, so the EconoLodge has upgraded its offerings to attract visitors.
The upholstery of the lobby furniture could use a good cleaning. That's when I remembered it was a budget hotel.
All in all, a fine place to stay if you happen to go to Erie, PA.More
