“Amazing Outstanding Service & Accomodations.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We booked online because in part they allowed our little dog. Once we arrived: 50 feet from beach access, handed a doggy basket of dedicated towels, water/food tray, doggy treats plus a dedicated doggy grass area. Amazingly Quiet, walking to restaurants or brew pub plus hiking ( dog friendly ) state beach. Fresh hot coffee 24/7, yogurt, bagels, cookies all complementary. A definite bargain for this pacific beach community. We will book for next year longer Rated AAAAA+++. David L.

Stayed here over the 4th for 4 nights; 4 gals. Got a room with 2 queens (studio). Very spacious and big bathroom too. Windows looked over bay and we watched fireworks from there as the beach was so packed! Fun walking on the endless mi. of beach, watching whales breach and lots of seals just across the inlet/bay. Wish they had a bit more choice for breakfast, but coffee good and strong! Lots of dogs but surprisingly quiet. Hardly heard a bark! No complaints! :)

Room Tip: room 206 (studio) just up a short flight of stairs and little deck to sit on (shared with room next...

Tripadvisor has been a great resource for finding good hotels and the recommendations from folks for the Looking Glass Inn were spot-on. We stayed in a smallish suite, room 112, with a kitchenette and small bedroom, and a pull-out couch for the kids. The setup was ideal for us as we didn't really need to cook, but could save a little on meals.

The rooms were nicely appointed and not cluttered with junky art, or unnecessary furniture. The couch, bed--all were very comfortable. The wifi signal was very weak in our unit, but not "take away a star weak", but weak. They should work on that. I had to contact my office and this was a little frustrating.

The location is key here, and if you want access to the beach, this place has it. Right across the street is the bay. The kids loved it and we had a great time. The only--and I mean only--downside to this is when people have bonfires on the beach you get some smoke in the air. Not a big deal for us, but if you have an allergy to woodsmoke you'll want to be on an upper floor.

The staff was excellent and the hotel provides beach toys for the kids. We loved it and wish we could have stayed longer than two days. Honestly, you could do so much worse than the Looking Glass Inn.

Room Tip: Second and third floors have the view. If this is important to you, get one of those.

We chose to return to Looking Glass Inn for our anniversary because of its proximity to the wonderful Siletz Bay Park and...to hunt for the agates which abound there! We had a 2nd floor room with a king bed (firm but not rock hard!) and big spa tub. The room was spotless and comfortable, with a small patio facing the bay (you could hear the Harbor Seals). We were up and on the beach shortly after 6am and hunted for agates for a couple of hours, coming home with some great finds ranging in size from "peas to jelly beans on steroids". The staff here is awesome, from reservation to check out they clearly remember your names and are among the most friendly we've ever encountered! Nice work, LGI!!! (Senior couples, remember there are no elevators here!)

Room Tip: Seniors...remember there are no elevators.

We love staying here and so does our dog. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are very nice. One of the most pet friendly places we've stayed; they give you a basket with treats and food/water bowls for the room.

We have stayed here twice with our big german shepherd and we love it!! Clean, large, nice rooms. Dogs are welcomed! Rooms don't smell of pets at all. Friendly staff. A few steps from the beach. This is the only place we will ever stay in Lincoln city!

Super easy check-in, comfy beds, cozy atmosphere, our puppy even felt very welcomed with her goodie basket! Only thing we had a problem with was it was so hot, even with the windows open and the fan wide open, that we could barely sleep at night. Such a rare thing at the Oregon coast though so we can't complain too much!
