I recently stayed at the Glass House Inn in Erie, PA.. I arrived after the office closes for the night and my room was left open for me. I have stayed here in the past and have had a pleasant experience. Located on 26th St (Route 20). Even though its is close to the road I didn't notice any road... More

We stopped at the Glass House Inn for just one night on a cross-country trip and loved it. The room was clean and pleasant, breakfast was nice, and the staff were very helpful. We will definitely stay here again next time, hopefully more than just one night.

We went for a last minute girl weekend and my friend chose our accommodations. We were so glad we chose the Glass House Inn. We LOVED it! All was very clean and we felt like the old-time style and alot of beautiful flowers, added to the charm and warm, friendly feeling. The pool is so clean and nice to relax... More

Tim and Laura are great host. This inn is centrally located and we were able to get around Erie with ease. Very clean and the beds were comfortable. It has it’s age but it just a blast from the past. Took me right back to being a little girl spending time in Erie with my family. We will be back... More

Even though it isn't the most modern place in Erie, it is a retro inn full of charm. The rooms and motel are extremely clean even though the bathroom does need some updating. I will take clean & charming over updated every day of the week. The staff was friendly, kind, and helpful. The pool pristine clean and inviting. Thank... More

This place is surely a blast from the past! We absolutely loved it here. The Inn is impeccably clean and the pool was fabulous! We really enjoyed our stay in Erie. There is a festival for just about anyone! We would definitely stay here again.

This was our 3rd year staying at Glass House Inn for an annual family trip to Waldameer and Presque Isle and once again had a very enjoyable time! We love the size of the inn and the location is great. The grandchildren make good use of the pool and we enjoy having plenty of room to sit and watch them... More

Decided to take a trip to see Presque Isle and was looking for a decent place nearby, came across The Glass House Inn on Hotels.com and decided to go with it. It was a great choice. It was easy to find off the highway, close to Presque Isle, and had the amenities you would want in an inn. Staff was... More

My family stayed here while visiting in August 2014. In the one room someone had recently thrown up on the carpet - this was obvious by the sight and smell. Staff apparently felt putting a scented tree in the air conditioner vent would be an appropriate way to cover up the smell. Staff was discourteous and the motel was overall... More

We stayed at the Glass House Inn last year, and we were so impressed that we returned this year. The inn may look like it's out of the 1950's, but it's up-to-date with all the amenities you'd expect in a larger chain hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the grounds are beautifully landscaped with well-tended flowers. The heated... More

We're so glad you chose to come back and stay at the Glass House Inn again this year. Thank you for noticing the landscaping! We're so impressed by the beautiful flowers, we decided to highlight them on our Facebook page. The pool has been particularly popular recently thanks to the warm days we've had and we're glad you had a... More
