The Glass Inn Erie PA was a great value

We were pleasantly surprised. A bit of the old and new with flowery wallpaper on accent wall, very well-maintained, very clean, family-run facility. Superb plumbing. Cold breakfast items including fruit at dining tables with shared jelly jars. Best part of travel to Erie is to enjoy Lake Erie and Presque Isle State Park which is a couple miles away, and great for birding, walking, biking, fishing, boat rentals, picnics, swimming (Memorial Day through Labor Day), etc., or just a 14 mile slow drive. Teenager, of course, loved easy internet connection. Let owners know ahead of time if you are arriving late. Check out the wineries along route 6 east of Erie if you've got time.

Glass House Inn - A nice little place

I chose this place for my girlfriend, her daughter and I. I was convinced by the reviews I read on various travel sites for this small, family run business. As other reviewers had written, it was a bit of a dated place, but that what gives it its charm. It reminded me of the little places I stayed at with my parents when we travelled as I was growing up, and I found it perfect for the same sort of trip with my new, young family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were only in town for the one night, and found the location great for a short visit to Erie. It was very close and central to everything. We were only minutes away from places, such as the Millcreek Mall, Presque Isle State Park, The Environmtal Centre, countless restaurants and grocery stores. And even a Tim Hortons close by (for those Canadians looking for a bit of familiarity)!! Coming in from Ontario, it was a great location as it was not far and easy to find from the highway. The staff were very polite and more than willing to help in anyway they could. The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate to get you on your way in the morning. I would definitely visit the Inn again anytime I stay in the area. I was there in November and would like very much to stay in the summer when the gardens are in full bloom and the pool is open. Overall, it was a great little place. If you are a rude, picky sort of gueast, I would recommend going elsewhere (for your sake, as well as the other guests and staff). If you are looking for pleasant atmosphere, good value, and the things you really need for a stay, this is a great place.
