Quaint, family oriented, local motel. Exceptionally clean! Better than most of the local " chain" motels that we usually stay in. Staff was excellent. Close to Presque Isle, good restaurants, good shopping. Our new "go to" motel when in Erie!

I've been coming to the Glass House for several years. It's the quality of service & the personal touches that keep me coming back. It doesn't have all the frills of a big chain, but the hotel isn't where I spend all my time. It's a clean, well-kept room with a friendly staff at a reasonable price. I feel like...

We did not mind the drive into town as we had never been to Erie, perhaps 10 minutes. The motel is set back from a rather busy highway but windows were sound proofed. Actually we opened the door for fresh April air and it was not noisy. Would like to see their gardens as only bulbs were blooming. Beds very...

It's wonderful to hear that you had such a nice stay with us on your first visit to Erie. We hope that you're able to pay us another visit later in the spring/summer so that you can see our gardens in full bloom. They really are beautiful! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We loved this place! It was quaint, comfortable and clean. Has a 50's/60's vintage feel. The staff was very friendly. If your looking for the amenities of a big hotel chain don't go here, but if you want the comfortable atmosphere of staying with family you'll want to check this one out. They even leave a prayer for you in...

This place is recommended by a table tennis club! At first I am not interested in living in motel but after I read all the review and photo info I decided to give it a try- absolutely worth it ! We order a family room with three bed- the room and the bathroom is very clean and nice! All the...

Price = expectations. There are a few things that can't be changed, so I'll start there. I had a room with an adjoining door to another room, and it sounded like the neighbors were in my room. Thankfully they went to bed early. Also, the shower head is built for someone 5'6" or shorter. But, the problem for me was...

We want every guest to have a wonderful stay with us, so it's disappointing to hear you were unable to enjoy your recent visit. We apologize for the condition of your shower tiles. What you describe in your review is certainly not in keeping with our usual high standards for cleanliness. However, the housekeeper assigned to that area of the...

I just moved to Erie and needed a place to stay until I got a permanent home. This was a great choice. It is an almost retro hotel, with nice, older furniture and fixtures. It is very clean, and has all of the amenities you need. The staff I dealt with were very pleasant and helpful to me. I am...

Travelling across the Northeast, I was looking for a quiet convenient spot to rest for the night. Glass House Inn was convenient, clean, comfortable and friendly. I'd rather stay there than any chain hotel.

All the amenities of the time with the comfort of your parents home. The inn still uses actual keys to access the room so it was like coming home. The rooms are like stepping back in time. The inn is well maintained and kept and clean. Depending on where your room is the hot water can fluctuate.

I was a little hesitant to reserve a room at this motel at first just because I'm so used to staying in a hotel AND it was much less than all the other places I checked in the area. But I thought, "what could it hurt since i'd only be in the room just to sleep". I am so glad...
