Well kept and tidy! Fast wi-fi! Great location, easy short drive to downtown and to bay area. Room was top notch, staff friendly and helpful. Will be staying again and passing the good news to friends and family! Thank you so much!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 February 2017

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 stayed here for 3 nights this past weekend. People are very friendly. The rooms were very clean. Close to everything but very quiet. Will definitely be back. We had a room in the corner with a little patio. Flowers were just starting to bloom. Very clean and pretty.

Led another birding field trip and most of the attendees stayed here again with me. the location, price, cleanliness and overall experience is always good for me. I think they do a great job here and would always return when I go back with either family or birding trips.

This was my first stay and had come highly recommended by friends. Check-in was very efficient and I enjoyed talking to the young staff. They were very upbeat and made us feel welcome right away. The furnishings were new and bed comfortable. The bathroom was older but immaculately clean. The room had a desk, table, comfortable chair, microwave, refrigerator. TV...

This motel was originally established in the 50's . Three generations of the same family have owned it and you can tell that they love it. It is reasonably priced and very clean. Don't pay those high chain prices. Support this motel and the hard working owners!

We went up to Erie to fish on Saturday, so we needed a quick place to stay on Friday night. The Glass House Inn was convenient, clean and well-maintained, with cute personal touches. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was enough to fill us up for a day on the water. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking...

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!
