Glass House Inn is the best place to stay if going to Presque Isle. It is easy access to and from 79. Two minutes from Presque Isle State Park. A great location!! I would definitley stay again and recommend to others. A very nice Continental Breakfast. I heard other talking at breakfast that they grew up in the area, and... More

This is a very quaint family-owned and operated, and CLEAN motel. It was homey and comfortable; to me, it felt like staying at Grandma's house. The pool is heated and open till 11pm, so my kids were able to swim and enjoy it when we got back from our daily adventures. I highly recommend this (if you aren't looking for... More

This was our first trip to Erie. After much searching online, we found that this was the only place that does not allow pets or smoking. This is very important to us as we all suffer from horrible allergies. After reading all of the positive reviews we decided to book for our stay. First impression was a nice mom and... More

We're so sorry that your stay at the Glass House Inn wasn't more enjoyable. Rest assured that we make every effort to be quick and efficient in solving any problems our guests inform us about. Our hotel's charm is in its original '50s and '60s touches, and we're very careful to maintain these vintage aspects. Most of our guests enjoy... More

We stayed for two nights for a weekend away. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. Everything seemed very clean. The only problem was the room smelled a little. Fortunately, the windows opened which helped get rid of the smell. Would probably stay again.

On a recent trip through Erie, we stayed overnight at the Glass House Inn. First of all, everybody in our family had a great night's sleep, which -- in my opinion -- is the most important component of a good hotel/ motel stay. Secondly, the staff was very accommodating with some somewhat last minute rearranging of our weekend reservation. We... More

Well based on reviews we thought we would give it a try. I don't think I would stay again. Lots of road noise & some issues with room. The door was so hard to open you practically had to put your shoulder into it! Couldn't get most of the windows to open so had to use small air conditioning unit... More

Of course we want every guest to have a wonderful stay with us, so it's disappointing to hear you were unable to fully enjoy your visit. Our motel's charm is in its original '50s touches, and we're very careful to maintain these vintage aspects.

Friendly staff, immaculate rooms, a prayer for peace and prosperity during your stay - what's not to love? You won't regret your stay at this family-run inn. A lovely experience. We would stay here again.

Sweet, CLEAN little motel with a pool and a light breakfast. Close to Presque Isle State park and downtown Erie. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would make this choice again. Nice change of pace from a chain.
