Was in town for a VMA reunion weekend and needed a convenient place to stay. Over the years our family has used the Glass House as our go to place for lodging. It's a lovely family run business reminiscent of bygone days- homey feel and friendly staff. It's location is convenient to all the local attractions and dining without the... 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.

We enjoyed our stay at the Glass House Inn, the room was clean and comfy. Only issue was we are not used to the noise of a room air conditioner so it was a little loud, but other than that, it was very nice. Staff was friendly, breakfast was just right, coffee could have been hotter, pool was great. Good... More
