This is a cool little 50s-style motel in Erie, Pa. If you want fancy rooms, plush beds, room service, etc. then you are probably not the type of person who can understand the absolute coolness of this motel. The owners and staff are super nice and the rooms are clean, hip and fun. Like I said, if you want the... More

Bench outside to have a smoke. I generated a lot of paper trash , since I was cleaning out old papers and memorabilia. And they took care... More

Stayed for one night, 2/23, and found the hotel as expected - wonderful. We often stop here on our way to and from Cleveland. Front desk always hospitable. Although on a busy street, we never hear the traffic. Not far from good restaurants for an evening meal.

I always like to support small businesses where possible, we arrived very late and our room had been left open for us, its a little dated but warm and comfortable...breakfast was limited but did the job, worth tracking this place down...

As we weren't going to be able to make it until after 10pm when the office closed, we were told that our door would be unlocked and it was. Comfortable bed with a table and two chairs in a small nook with a small fridge, microwave and a coffee maker. The bathroom was fine but I would suggest a small... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Glass House Inn this past weekend. We used it as a base to go skiing and shopping down to Grove City. We often stay at the large chains, but due to the great reviews we decided to give this motel at try. We are so glad we did. The location is close... More

I stayed there last fall and liked it enough to rebook. There are some dreadful motels out there and then there are cozy-cute ones like the Glass House. Plus, it's close to half a gillion restaurants, so you'll have fun deciding where to eat. Go, Glass House!

The Glass house Inn is clean and rather old fashioned. we have stayed here several times. Looking to book again this year. The only thing that really bothered us, is the loud partying, car running with radio blasting at all hours of the night into 3 a.m. Produced by the owners daughter. Very unprofessional. I cannot believe the owners let... More

glasshouseinn, Owner at Glass House Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for staying with us over the years. I guarantee you that we don't "let" something like that happen. That is totally unacceptable for anyone to behave that way on our property especially a family member. She does not live nor work at the property, so there is no reason for it. This is the first complaint I have... More
