We travel with our dog. Staying at a place like the Looking Glass is a pure pleasure. The rooms are immaculate. The staff are all so very nice and right on top of things. The are around the Hotel is so clean and easy to be at. The view is amazing and the town is too. I was very impressed with that place and will go back every chance I get.

For our 50th anniversary, we elected to take a trip and see places we hadn't been, and planning accommodations can be difficult if you don't know the area. Fortunately, we chose the Looking Glass Inn. It was perfect for us; on the beach, good views from our room, very clean and comfortable. Staff was extremely cordial and went out of their way to make us and our dog comfortable. We hated to leave. Especially appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us in the room and the dog basket. Hope to go back again.

Thanks for a really relaxing extra long weekend at the Oregon Coast! The pet friendly room was clean and roomy. We especially enjoyed walking our dog Beck on the beach every day. The motel staff offered treats to Beck every time we stopped by the lobby. What a blessing to be in Lincoln City during some minus tides so we could explore the shoreline & find beautiful tiny shells & colorful rocks & agates. Since our motel offered a pretty good breakfast, we only ate out once a day. We highly recommend the shrimp salads at Mo's, clam chowder & shrimp Louie at the Sea Hagg, & split the captain's platter at Dory Cove. Amazingly, we saw two newborn seals & several whale spouts. We're already dreaming about our next getaway at the Looking Glass Inn. What FUN!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bay view, so if the weather's scroungy you can still enjoy the water.

Not only is the hotel in a great location but the staff is so nice!!!!! Rooms are huge and the beds comfy. We left our $200 Bose speakers on the bed when we left. We didn't really expect to get them back but when we called they said "yes, we have them and we'll mail them to you right away". Lots of integrity in my opinion! Their continental breakfast is plentiful and if you bring your pets they have dog beds and cute little baskets of goodies for each one. They even have a nice grassy area with a fire hydrant for the pets. Just a really cute hotel. Well maintained and very clean. I can see why it rates at the top of Trip Advisor. Make sure you walk the beach. There is a "clamming" area off to the left near the pier. Over to the right you'll see locals beach combing for agent rocks. We also saw a baby seal that was just born and mama was out feeding. They have volunteers that come to keep the people away. You'll see some pretty cool things like different tide formations, lots of seals, crabs, starfish,tide pools. Great beach hotel. It's right next to Mo's. We didn't eat there but heard the clam chowder is good.

We did not use trip advisory.com. but think its great they have it on there. The staff went above and beyond to accomadate our stay. The rooms are very clean, comfy. And they even treat our four legged freinds as royality. Will always recomend this hotel.

It was our first time staying and was only able to stay one night. Wish we could have stayed longer. I had read many reviews so asked for a third floor room so we would have a view and deck. Our room had a very comfy king size bed, gas fireplace, 2 burner stove and a whirlpool. I was really excited about the whirlpool pool but the jets weren't very strong. The room was very clean! There was only 2 minor down falls. 1) walls seem to be pretty thin so even on the third floor you can hear things. 2) we got there about a few minutes early on a Sunday before check in time and had to wait for room to be ready. Other then that we would stay here again.
