Our family loves to stay @ the glass house inn. It is about 3 miles from the state park. The staff is all very helpful and motel is always clean and well kept. The breakfast is always full of many choices and fresh fruit. We love the heated pool!!!!!

We stayed 4 evenings at the Glass House. The reviews I've read were pretty dead on. The room was clean and comfortable. Normally, I have a hard time sleeping elsewhere but was pleasantly surprised, I slept like a log here. Free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast rounded out our stay for a fair price.
Close to Presque Isle state park and enjoyed the fishing, didn't catch anything to take home, (just fished from a dock), but enjoyed the view and all the wonderful, friendly people we met there. I would stay here again, would much rather stay at a family owned business, than a corporate hotel.

Pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of Glass House Inn. Room, property and pool are clean and meticulously maintained. Staff are courteous and helpful. Free wi-fi and continental breakfast. Very close to Presque Isle and restaurants.

This is our second stay at Glass House and it was as enjoyable as the first time. The Inn is a classic motor court motel from the 60s. The rooms are refurbished and clean, facing the morning sun. There is a pool in front along with the patio and grill for your use. WiFi works well, and their is a light continental breakfast, which I wish had more fruit.

This is a family run motel making it a pleasant stay. You'll be disappointed if you prefer the larger up to date chain lodging.

Clean and classic motel. It was built in 1955. The motel still has the original tile and tubs but has been updated otherwise. I am the 3 generation owner and am very proud of our sweet motel! Thanks for staying with us and the review!

Pleasant family owned motel near Presque Isle with miles of sandy beaches. Flowers outside all over and well maintained. Popular, busy. We stayed an extra night and had to move rooms it all went very smoothly. We moved direct into a clean room at 9.30. Lots of flowery curtains and little messages inside. Swimming pool is located in front part of the parking lot right by the highway. It's gated though. We found it expensive at August weekend.
