Our Dog Loved the Hotel and Location

5 out of 5
by from Boston
Posted Nov 13, 2016
Pros: Dogs are allowed and there are unlimited, scenic walking routes directly from the hotel.
Cons: Hotel rules for pets was signed/left at front desk. Provide guests with same instructions & locations of pet friendly areas in/outside hotel grounds.
Location: Location perfect for 70lb dog that loves the outdoors/long walks. Area is scenic/safe - walks could go on for miles. Short drive to Fabrizi Dog Park.
We plan to make this trip in early November every year and were happy to find out that the Sheraton Bayside allowed dogs. We drove the 9 hours to Erie from Boston for our dog's first hotel stay. He loved the attention he received from staff/guests and was even included in some photos at a wedding reception taking place. We will definitely plan to come back to this hotel each year. If possible, bring a dark blanket and dark towel for the dog. The room had a white comforter and white towels and there were a few instances where we were glad we were able to clean off his feet after long walks without getting a hotel towel muddy. After placing the dark blanket at the end of the bed, he was able to comfortably watch tv in the evening before going to sleep on his dog bed. I'm not sure where the area is that the hotel provides for dogs to relieve themselves so I cannot comment on that, but based on previous reviews we weren't planning to use it. We opted to walk him past the parking garage and across the street to the large areas of grass near the Maritime Museum so that he wasn't seen going on the flowers/trees in front of the hotel. If it's cold out that walk may be a bit far, especially with a small dog or a dog that likes to go out at 3am.

Peter, thank you so much for your 5 star review. I am pleased that you and your pet enjoyed the hotel so much! I will be sure to look into creating a larger and closer area for animals to use for the restroom as I agree, it would be a long cold walk in the winter! Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!

Location: We went off season, and we have a 12 and 8 year old, so we hit Peach Street which we drove too. There is food/drink in hotel & walking distance.
Ask for a view of the water. The hotel was super clean.

Pros: location, quality
Location: Dobbin's Landing, Erie Maritime museum, Erie Zoo, Victorian Princess dinner cruise, Presque Isle!
Room with view of bay but also of large brick wall that juts out from building. Good room comfortable beds. If we stay there again will make sure to request a room on the other end of the hotel, preferably in one of the sections that jut out.

Pros: The setting, the outdoor dining, the rooms over looking the lake

We try to stop here once a year. We love the hotel and the fact that we can have dinner outside with our dog. The setting is beautiful.
