I have stayed here a few times. I so appreciate the hominess of the owners, lobby, and rooms. The rooms are very clean and do not smell of smoke. The area is safe and very near cute little shops, large grocery stores, and many restaurants. The breakfast is self-serve and very satisfying. If you are looking for fancy, keep going.... More

My wife and I traveled from England to see friends in Erie and had a very nice stay here. The staff made us feel welcome when we first walked in the door and as we were leaving at the end. The room was very spacious with plenty of room to relax. They included a microwave and small refrigerator. The Inn's... More

This hotel/motel/shack is worth one star because everything was sub-standard. I mean everything. The room was incredibly basic and poorly equipped for the money. Breakfast was very poor and the dining area staff uninterested in the people paying their wages, US! The hotel staff on the day consisted of a lady who was far more interested in a relative or...

We have stayed at the AAA- rated Glass House Inn many times over the years on our visits to Erie covering 2-4 nights. It is a very comfortable, clean, and safe facility -- close to great restaurants, a variety of shopping venues, and landmark sites and activities. it is set back from the main highway, the noise protected by a...

We stayed here on a trip from New Haven, CT (picking up daughter from college at school year-end), doing a circuit up through New York and then home to Michigan. At the time we made the reservation (early April 2014?), they were allowing dogs, but I believe they discontinued that practice very soon after we reserved. When we arrived in... More

We found this hotel on Hotels.com. It was very nice - a clear family run business. The place is quaint, clean and comfortable. To eat breakfast at an actual dining room table was a nice experience! Felt like home.

We had a great stay at the Glass House. It is so nice to stay at a non chain accommodation. We had a queen room with a sofa which is so much more pleasant than sitting on the bed.

This was our first trip to Erie PA. We were looking for a local private hotel/motel with some charm and we found it at the Glass House.

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

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.
