We stopped here for a night in June while traveling from Chicago to Niagara Falls, and we found the Glass House Inn experience to be wholly agreeable. Even though we arrived for a very late check-in at 11pm, we were greeted with warmth and a smile. The lobby and dining area are charmingly decorated, and the inn has a very... More

Nice, comfortable Inn with a good continental breakfast, super clean swimming pool, ample parking, clean rooms, and comfortable beds. The Inn was busy and all the guests we met were courteous. Great location for Waldameer and Water World and Presque Isle and The Tom Ridge Environmental Center.

The Glass House is an older place, and feels it. The pool is nice, the rooms are clean if a bit dated, and quaint for a night's stay to get away. The bed's a bit stiff to make a week long stay in my opinion, and the AC unit was a little on the loud side, but I'd gladly stay... More

This is an ideally located hotel and reasonabley priced. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. A clean, outdoor, pool was a real bonus too. It worked well for me and my young family. It is, however, starting to show its age. The beds could use new comforters and blankets, as these were quite worn out. We were also stuck... More

We're glad that you were able to enjoy the pool, the friendly staff, and benefit from the Inn's proximity to some of the best locations Erie has to offer. That said, we'd like to apologize again about your room's bolt lock. Also, we appreciate feedback like yours about the ashtrays and amenities so that we can try to make things... More

This is a lovely 50s style motel and a very welcome change from US chain hotels. We arrived quite late so we appreciated the late check-in time. The owners were particularly attentive, taking time out of their no doubt busy morning schedule to give us thoughtful advice (which we took) about where to stay next on our road trip. We... More

My family and I needed a room at the last minute and we came across this place and we were extremely pleased with everything from the cleanliness to the friendliness of the staff. Would love to come back again. We had a great experience. And the pool was pristine. Loved it.

We were greeted warmly by the owners and happy to find our room clean. It was older as expected but the place was kept up well. We enjoyed the pool and the continental breakfast. This hotel is not far from the State Park and the Waldameer Amusement/water park. I would stay here as opposed to the run-down hotels right by... More

Thank you very much for sharing your experience at the Inn. We're glad you enjoyed the pool and continental breakfast. It really is tough to beat Presque Isle and Waldameer this time of year! We keep reading about the expansions they are planning at Waldameer, including the largest wave pool in the tri-state area, and can't wait to check them... More

Just completed our second stay at the Glass House and couldn't have been more pleased. Comfortable, quiet, and clean. Simple breakfast to start the day and convenient to just about everything! Easy in, easy out. Pleasant people all around.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Glass House Inn very much. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My 10-year-old really enjoyed the pool. Breakfast got us all off to a great start.

The room was clean and well maintained. Only had one small problem, the key was hard to pull out of the lock. As soon as I mentioned the problem, it was fixed. Although we did not have time to use it, the swimming pool was also very clean with plenty of beach chairs around it. The staff were very courteous,... More
