We were looking for something a little more central and not one of the usual chains. The Glass House Inn fit the bill perfectly. Although an older motel, it was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend it to others and stay there again. It's a short drive to Presque Isle... More

Had a reasonable price, simple continental breakfast and okay wifi. Would stay there again if passing through Erie. Room was clean. Sort walk to sub shop (Subway). Need to drive to other eating places.

On short notice when we could not get into a "chain" hotel they referred us to Glass House Inn. We were very pleased with our choice to stay here and glad that they had one room left! We slept better than we ever have at any "Hotel" The staff was very friendly. Location was perfect for the purpose of our... More

The Mrs. & I usually stay at the Inn at Presque Isle, and were disappointed to hear of its closing. When I asked that staff who their "biggest competitor" was, they recommended The Glass House Inn. Suffice to say that we weren't disappointed!

This is a place you might easily pass on. DON'T. Out dated but quaint, very clean & super friendly. Continental breakfast was good. Room was comfortable. Would definitely stay again. Outdoor heated pool. Close to Presque Isle and all the attractions, off strip pricing. +++++

My wife and I were quite pleased with the accommodation at the Glass House Inn. It was perfect for us, easy to find, very comfortable with its old charm that is not always found at other hotels. We spent three nights there (May 15-18, 2015) and would surely recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet place to stay, close to... More

Nice little motel at a great price! Clean rooms, attractive exterior landscaping, and a nice trip back to the 1970s in its interior design. Breakfast was minimal but sufficient. Could use carry cups with lids for the coffee. Near to U Pick 6 Tap House which is a plus if you like good beer and pizza!

We have been going to Erie for 4 years to drop my son off at college. Usually, we stay with friends. However, they both passed away, so we have looked for hotels. This place beats any chain we have stayed at, Clean rooms, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Second visit but not the last.
