We stayed there in March 2017. The owners are nice and friendly. The place is old but clean and well kept. Breakfast was simple but enough to get you going. I assume it is very hard for independent businesses like this one to compete with big chains. It's nice to support small businesses when we can. If I ever pass...

Very nice property. Clean and comfortable. I'd defiantly stay again. Only negative was the coffee and breakfast could have been a little better. Great stay though.I would recommend it,easy to get to from the interstate and close to most attraction in the area.

60's ish, but very comfortable & clean. Great value ... would use their services again. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in ... including ours at home. Traffic noise was very minor & not really an issue.

We enjoyed our stay beginning with the young lady who over the phone took our reservation honoring a web discount I had seen online and accomodated our late arrival, to the sweet note left on bed and the clean room. We love that this place has been in their family for generations, you can tell they take pride in the...

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...

Loved this place, beautiful with a nice touch of feeling 'home'. The furnishing is a bit dated but that was perfectly fine for me, everything was very clean. At this place you get an actual key, you'll find these great 'old' telephones. Greatest plus for me, you could open windows and even the door with its fly screen. No need...

Stayed overnight at Glass House Inn while traveling through Erie and found it to be clean, comfortable and a great value. It was nice to pass by the larger hotel chains and feel the personal touch of a family-run place. Breakfast was also nice although selection was limited. Overall, were glad we stayed here.

Totally as described. Nice place, nice people. Reasonable to work with. In room coffee pot, microwave, and refrigerator. Pillows are very firm - I did have trouble sleeping because of this and the (moderate) road noise. Nevertheless, I plan to stay there again next visit - but I'll bring my own pillow.
