The Glass House owner was welcoming and helpful even before I arrived. She accommodated me even though I arrived late. The room was ready for me when I arrived. It was so comfortable, attractive, and had everything I needed right at hand. I slept very well in the bed. The room had many lovely details-even the heater was decorated. I... More

Stayed one night while in town for a college visit. Great value, clean comfortable rooms. Top it off with a nice shower and a decent breakfast and it's all good. One negative was I could here the tv from the room nextdoor.

This is my 3rd time staying with the Glass House Inn. We have 3 people and booked two double bed room. The room was very roomy, clean and tidy for us. The rate was very economic ($88 for one night). No complain at all! If you are arriving after 10 p.m,, make sure you call them in advance for arrangement... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Glass House Inn. We were pleasantly surprised how quiet and comfortable the room was. We typically don't enjoy staying in hotels as the beds are usually very uncomfortable but this was not the case! Definitely will be back when we want a "get-away".

Loved this place! Clean, cozy and fun! Need to check in before ten pm or call. Definitely a comfy bed, nice sheets and good pillows. Not modern, but in the best way. Cute decor and a wonderfully nice family. Support local and stay here! ...... : )

We had visited the Inn in October and were looking for a place in Erie for our February trip. This was the first place I thought of when booking lodging. With the feet of snow on the ground I was glad to see that the parking lot was plowed and I could get to the room without climbing a snowbank.... More

Thank you for your return visit and for the kind words. We actually have a WiFi hot spot right next to that room. We checked it out and it is working great on several of our devices. I am not sure why you had an intermittent problem. Maybe it was the sub zero temperatures:) More

My husband and I were in town while I took my boards. We were looking for something close to the testing location that was inexpensive and clean. We saw the reviews for this place and decided to try it. We love that it's family owned and still has older pieces; to us it was charming and fet like home. We... More

We live in Georgia and had a death in the family at Erie, PA. Being unfamiliar with local hotels, we contacted the funeral home for suggestions. The nearby Glass House Inn on 26th Street was their first recommendation. We were told it's an older bed & breakfast type of motel, not fancy, but very clean, comfortable and locally owned by...

We stayed last weekend while it was snowing and some of the coldest weather I've experienced. However, even with the exterior door the hotel room was quite warm. The bathroom was nice, but the shower's temperature was very touchy. That's a minor nitpick though. The location was convenient, I did not hear any traffic noise but the mounds of snow... More

We stayed at the Glass House Inn this past weekend during some of the worst weather ever, below zero and high winds. Our room was toasty warm and welcoming. The thermostat allowed us to cool it down for sleeping and warm back up quickly. I thought the mattress was super comfy and I loved the fluffy pillows. Wi-fi was excellent... More
