Good location (2.5 from the park), on a busy road but you can't hear any road noise in the rooms, outside has had attention, pool is great, rooms have not been updated in quite a while, went out to get breakfast both days as cereal and pastries are the only option, staff was friendly helpful. Price was midline for the... More

Well maintained, clean motor-court type motel, straight out of the 1950's. The Glass House Inn is a short drive (2.5 miles) from Presque Isle State Park, with friendly hosts and good rates. Our room was in one of the inside corners--very private and quiet. Even though the inn is located on a main street, there was no noise in our... More

Would my hubby and I return to this motel? That is a difficult question as there are pros and cons. The rates are good and the location is very good for Presques Isle and downtown Erie. However, the bathrooms have very low sinks and the water pressure is poor. It took a good three minutes to have hot water in... More

We recently stayed a few days at the Glass House Inn. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Erie. Also central location to most attractions...within 5-10 minutes traveling time.

The Glass house Inn is a very well maintained, clean small motel, which is obvious the moment you pull into the parking lot. The single story structure is surrounded by flowers and the parking lot is devoid of litter. The front desk staff were all pleasant and check in and out was took just minutes . Our room was clean...

This is our second trip to Erie this year from Pittsburgh and both times we stayed at our home away from home, the Glass House Inn. It was very quiet for how busy it was and as usual everything with the room was perfect (even the weather was nice in between the rain showers) and everyone was very friendly. This... More

My husband and I stayed at the Glass House Inn for one night earlier this month. We were excited about our stay due to the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. However, we were not pleased with our stay, and we're hoping it was just an isolated incident. I'll start with the positivies of our stay. The girl that checked us in... More

Loved this motel! Very clean and cozy. The decor wasn't modern however it was clean and in good repair. We made reservations for a weekend with another family. We were able to get rooms right next to each other. Landscaping and flowers were beautiful, and there was even a gazebo to relax in. Outdoor pool was clean and heated, the... More

We have stayed at the Glass House Inn 3 times. As before, our accommodations we great. Very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Had a little noise from the room next to us, air conditioner did a good job of covering it. I especially love the 50's look that is still in some areas..(pink tile in the bathroom). Front... More
