The Glass House Inn was clean and updated, but it is still a 1950’s motel. The staff was friendly and efficient.

This is a really cute and convenient place. No frills, but great extras. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot were welcomed amenities. The pool was clean, and they provided pool towels if we didn't have our own. Check in was easy and the receptionist was as friendly as could be. I'd definitely go back!

Of course we want all of our guests to have a wonderful stay at the Glass House Inn, so it's disappointing to see by this review that you were less than satisfied with your visit. Unfortunately you failed to specify where we fell short of your expectations, making it impossible for us to address the issue. Thank you, anyway, for reaching out to us. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Best, Nigam Bhavsar, manager

The room furnishings were lovely and very comfortable, especially for the price paid. There were technical issues with the television which we were told were not uncommon, but the staff were very helpful in fixing the issues when asked. The breakfast provided is minimal – cold cereal, small or individually-packaged pastries, and coffee – but fairly typical for a motel. Would definitely stay again.
