The Glass House Inn provides a clean, comfortable "home away from home" while visiting Erie, PA. Conveniently located close to Presque Isle, the Glass House offers comfortable rooms and a nice continental breakfast in a charming motor-court-style setting.

Our motel room was comfortable and clean with coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The owners made us most welcome. Although the decor is dated it added to the homely charm. We have been staying in 'chain motels' on our holidays and the Glass House Inn was a welcome change. I would recommend this motel for anyone wanting a clean comfortable... More

My husband and I decided to go on a last minute trip and I chose Erie Pennsylvania. After looking at other reviews I came to the conclusion that the Glass House Inn was the place to stay. Let me just say we were not disappointed the location was great and it had to be the cleanest hotel room I had... More

I first stayed at the Glass House Inn a few years ago. I found it to be quiet, comfortable, and very conveniently located for nearly everything I wanted to do in Erie. I've been back at least 5 or 6 times, and each time the visit has been consistently good. It doesn't have a lot of the frills of a... More

We went to Erie just for the weekend and stayed at the Glass House Inn. It was very close to everything we wanted to do in Erie.

This beautifully landscaped and quaint Inn has it all. A very convenient and surprisingly quiet location, a terrific staff, and reasonable rates. Our recent three night stay at the Glass House Inn left nothing to be desired. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about local landmarks and directions. The Inn is close to Presque Isle and many fine restaurants... More

I have not had many positive experiences with motels, so I was curious to read on Tripadvisor many positive comments about the Glass House Inn in Erie, PA.

Last year was our first vacation as a young family (daughter then 1 year old). When looking online, ratings and reviews were our only query criteria. We were going to find the best rated place and we're not worried about the price. Priceline had Glass House Inn as the number one consumer rated place to lodge in the Erie area.... 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.
