Love this place. We were here about 25 years ago. Old style Mom and Pop place, family owned. Furnishings are dated but the rooms are very clean and charming. We like to support small businesses..So nice to park right by your door. Local restaurants nearby.

This place was clean, but other than that I can't say much that was positive. It is out dated. The headboard was pretty but the rest of the decor was old, ugly and creepy. The microwave had dials. There is a train that runs multiple times a night right behind the motel. It is also located on a main road... More

The train tracks are 7 blocks north of the motel, not right behind it. Our airport averages about 6 flights a day with small regional jets. The microwave with dials is actually new. The furniture is American of Martinsville colonial style which is the theme of the motel. The lamps are new and include electric outlets to plug in phone... More

Quaint old time kind of motor court right off the main highway, wife and I did a long weekend there and really enjoyed it . Used it as a base of operations close to Presque Isle. Close to many restaurants, shopping, easy to get downtown.

Very comfortable, not fancy but attractive - especially with the landscaping around the property. Breakfast was simple but fine. I just wished they didn't use styrofoam bowls and cups. There are many cardboard alternatives that are cost effective and better for the environment.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and found the hotel to be well kept. Room was clean except for a spill on carpet. Bathroom was very clean. The downside...noise...from the traffic on a busy street and from the next room. We could hear conversation from next room and at night had trouble sleeping with street traffic. Room was... More

Clean, quiet “motor court”-type motel – we booked a Deluxe King bed unit for 2 nights recently. All communication with staff was professional & friendly. Bed was new and room was neat. Bathrooms are small, but clean and odor-free. Small fridge, table & chairs, and shelf area with micro & coffee pot. Right off the main highway; easy to come... More

Rooms are clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms have a vintage feel. Even though it's on a busy street, you can't hear the traffic unless the windows are open. Beds are very comfortable The wi-fi is free, but the signal is very weak causing it totally drop or pages to load so slow it's maddening. Breakfast could be a... More

There's a real sense of nostalgia pulling into the Glass House Inn. It's even stronger when they hand you an original key to your room, with the room number stamped into the keychain. This is a clean, pleasant place that's run by genuine folks. We loved it.
