Are you a drug dealer that wants chlamydia? Well then this is the perfect place for you! This hotel has several unique amenities that are typically not found in hotels. One that is particularly charming is the "fitted" sheet that has no elastic, which makes for a great night of slipping all over your bed (it also feels like sandpaper!) These sheets are found on the square trampoline in the middle of the room. The hotel personnel refer to this object as a bed, but I think they're just being silly. It was so much fun to jump on, and so easy to get some decent height too! The springs are phenomenal. Every time my husband moved, I would fly up in the air. Super exciting at 3 am! Another cool feature in your room will be the private swimming pool. You might get fooled into thinking that this is a shower and tub combo, but there is no way it is because it doesn't drain! I do wish they had added some chlorine though, because I did not think pools (or bath tubs as they call them) are supposed to have a lining of greenish brown stuff. I'm sure it's not harmful though. I mean, the staff probably clean it. They didn't while we were there, even though I called the front desk and asked. But they were probably just busy watching the broken security cameras that they proudly display for some strange reason. Some other notable things: there is an AC unit, and they wanted to make sure that you know it works, so what they did was put a jet engine in it. It's kind of fun seeing how loud you have to yell to the person sitting next to you while it's on. I never knew how charming sleeping next to an airplane could be! When it does turn off though, you will get to listen to the sweet lullaby of car horns, drunken hotel guests, prostitutes having sex next door, police sirens, more drunken shenanigans, and super loud motorcycles. Don't worry, this music never gets quiet at night, so you will be able to stay up all night and listen to it! There is some romantic lighting in the hotel room. It's so dim you can barely see, but that's ok because the bathroom light you have to turn on at 4 am to go pee will shine with the light of a thousand suns. If you are looking for a retro feel during your trip to Erie this is perfect because they clearly have not changed the linens since 1981. They must have really purchased top of the line bath towels to have them hold up for 33 years!! Oh and don't even get me started on the interesting decor! There were two, yes I said two!, of the same exact picture on the wall in between these big yellow and brown spots all over the walls. Even the ceiling was cool - part of it was falling down, but just enough to make it look neat of course, and it was a tye dye of sorts, all colors being part of the poop colored brown family. The bed spread was super awesome too. More of those weird yellow spots! Oh and you can bring pets to this hotel, but there's no need because you will probably find a few in the room when you get there anyway. I thought about naming them, but I just didn't feel a strong enough bond. Too bad we only stayed two nights. Now one last thing, this is in the heart of downtown Erie. And I mean the heart of it. I bet people are literally stabbed in the heart right near this hotel. That's the kind of safety you will feel there. And with those broken security cameras, nothing can possibly go wrong anyways. Be aware, this hotel has not come to an age where small fridges, working plumbing, lysol, or door locks had yet been invented. Have a super time!
(Seriously do not stay here. We had reservations at the Avalon hotel and when we saw how gross that was we moved here to see if we would have better luck and it was cheaper. It was the only place in town we could find a room. I wish we had just gone home. Do not stay here.)
