Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Avalon Hotel and Conference Center is a Historic hotel located in downtown Erie across the street from the Children's Theater. I parked in the garage which is on the backside of the hotel and took the elevator to the lobby. Off either end of the lobby is where everything is at. One direction is the meeting space with foyer featuring Grand piano, fountain and small outdoor courtyard with seating; the other direction the Erie Room where Continental Breakfast (included in rate) and Benjamin's Restaurant that serves dinner. Other dining options and bars are also available within walking distance. Hosting an event, not a problem the hotel has a wide variety of menus to select from and up to 1000 guests with their flexible event space. Majority of guest rooms have been recently renovated with new carpeting, furniture and soft goods. This hotel is great while on business or leisure especially family reunions or weddings.

My reservation was from 05/7 checking out 05/9/21. I contacted the hotel few days prior to our arrival. I told them, we won't get to the hotel until the early Saturday morning, so the gentleman I talked to said that he is going to put a note. When got to the hotel that Saturday morning, we were told tha our reservations was canceled.

"Worst Ever"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
this hotel is filthy with no working air. showers don't work, water doesn't get hot, tub overflows. housekeeping comes in without knocking. had to switch rooms late and nothing was better. TV didn't work. it was like a night in prison and they only offered me 50% back but I have to do all the work of calling. will never stay here again or recommend.

"Was not what it was supposed to be, and one person ran the hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We asked for handicap accessible. Our room was not. The shower had a 16 inch high tub (a person in a wheel chair can not get into that). The first set of rooms were still not cleaned from the last people. When I went to the desk she said she was the only person in the hotel and there were no cleaning people to help. Their WiFi didn't work. They did not stand up to a four star hotel that I payed for. I paid for my mother and all. I paid extra for a four star hotel for all of them.

Testimonials icon
"Thank you so much for an amazing website. I had a very short time frame to manage a bus tour of 45. I needed hotels and banquets in less than 10 days. The destination was West Palm Beach - high season - and effectively sold-out. Within two hours I had responses back from three available hotels within my price range. I was able to sign a contract within 24 hours and manage the rest of the program. I continue to be impressed with your concept and will be a frequent user of your site." L.B. - Grand Rapids, MI
