We stayed at this motel based on other reviews in TripAdvisor so we knew what to expect. It's an older-style motel but kept very clean. We did, however, have a misunderstanding. The remote control for the TV didn't work. I went to the front desk where a young lady was basically running the motel. I said I thought the batteries... More

We apologize for the misunderstanding regarding your remote and the room switch. We're glad that had an enjoyable stay otherwise and were able to visit Presque Isle and the Mall. You really can't be tax free clothes shopping in Pennsylvania. We hope that you choose to stay with us again the next time you're in Erie. Best, Tim & Laura,... More

My husband and I stayed there for a week end of Sept and beginning of October 2014. Built in the 50's, still has a quaint quality. The room was homey, comfortable and clean. The staff were all great and very friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

Each time we return, we are once again pleased with the consistency and quality received at the Glass House Inn. For the cost, you receive a comfortable room, a good nights rest, love the reclining chair and nice people. In the morning, enjoy juice, tea, coffee, cereal, bagels, small danish and company of nice visitors. Chains are chains; but, this... More

This is a very clean and comfortable inn. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. It was a nice stay and everyone was very pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area. It was also close to a great place to eat. Even though on a busy street it was very quiet.

Karlene- Thank you for your positive review about your stay at the Inn! We're glad you found things to be clean and comfortable. There are quite a few great restaurants throughout Erie, several of which are close to the Inn. We're glad you found one you like. We hope you'll choose to stay with us again the next time you're...

The staff was very helpful and nice. The property is very clean. The interior bath fixtures are a bit outdated. You'll hear the nearby traffic in your room especially at night. For an older hotel it's fairly well kept. My wife and I would go back if we have a need to travel to Erie again.

Steve- Of course we always love to hear that people were impressed by the quality of the Inn. We're equally pleased when our friendly staff is something that stands out to our guests. Thank you for mentioning that in your review. The next time you make the trip from Middleburg to Erie, we hope to see you at the Glass... More

I booked my room at the Glass House Inn after seeing it's website. It was all what it said it was. I was pleased with the selection of food for the continental breakfast.The close proximity to Presque Isle was plus too. I would stay there again if I ever plan another trip to Erie.

We stayed here as a family a year ago...and last week when I discovered I needed a place to stay in Erie for my girl scout troop this was my first and last stop. The building is obviously not new but it is well maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is unbelievable. The staff and... More

This is a nice and clean family owned chain. They take pride in their property. The room were super clean and the girl at the front desk (I believe the daughter) was very friendly. It has a good location. We were running a little late for the continental breakfast and they offered to pull everything out for us again. We... More

We stayed one night at the Glass House Inn in Erie. We found it to be a pretty standard motel. The main advantages are that the people who work there are very pleasant and accommodating and it is quite close (8 minute drive) to Presque Isle. The owners seem to want to present it as a boutique motel which it... More

We're glad you were able to take advantage of our close proximity to Presque Isle. It is truly beautiful throughout the park this time of year and a wonderful place to take in the foliage. Thank you for also noting the friendly staff at the Inn. We take a lot of pride in making our guests feel at home. Best,... More

Nice, clean motel. Friendly staff. Rooms were dated but very clean. Motel offered everything you could need including breakfast. Is centrally located. Felt we got more for our dollar than we do at some of the larger, more well known hotels in Erie. Would return.
