“Wish I could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

My mom and I stayed with her dog in the two queen studio on a very busy summer Saturday. The check in was seamless, the staff very nice and relaxed. The amenities are perfect for this size room and you would think a hotel that has a very welcoming dog policy would be "louder". Not the case....quiet and lovely. For people that like to travel with their dog(s) this is a very nice choice as it is very close to the beach and there is a wonderful walking path. Mo's seafood restaurant is directly across the street and it was constantly busy so we ordered over the phone and ate in! Very good experience from start to finish!

Room Tip: An upstairs room might be better if you want to sleep in as footsteps are heard very easily early i...

Very nice place! Spacious rooms. Not right on the beach, but just across the street. No big deal. Rooms were clean and fresh. Nice Continental breakfast, friendly staff. Would stay here again. Highly recommend it. A big plus, although it did not apply to us on this trip, was that it is a very dog friendly place.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room facing the water.

My husband and I have been spending vacations at Looking Glass Inn for years. The location is perfect because the Siletz Bay is there as well as the ocean. The accommodations are always comfortable. We like to stay in a room with a good view of the the bay and the ocean. We enjoy watching the crowds that park and go to the beach. Every day is a good day; relaxing at Looking Glass Inn no matter the weather! Also there are a large number of Harbor seals that hang out on the peninsula between the bay and the ocean.

Room Tip: We like rooms there with a good view of the bay and the ocean.

We loved it! The location was perfect - walking distance to the beach, views of the bay and ocean, and walking distance to good restaurants. We had thought there might be some noise from dogs but it was quiet and peaceful the whole time. Either all the dogs were very well behaved or the sound proofing was amazing. :) It was wonderfully clean and well equipped. We hope to return again and next time bring our family and grand-dog!

My husband, 18 month old daughter and I stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. It was so nice having a full kitchen and a separate bedroom. The bathtub was huge and the price was fantastic for what we got. Right across the street from the ocean. Only small small complaint was that the wifi was spotty. No big deal though. We will return next summer for sure!

My mother was visiting from Indiana, and we wanted to do something fun, so we decided on the coast. I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it was rated number #1, I debated between this hotel and a few others, but ultimately chose this one based on the pictures and the proximity it was to the ocean (Bay). I am glad I decided on this hotel, this place was very welcoming and the staff was extremely friendly. This place is very accommodating for guests with dogs, fur guests are treated to a welcome package including dog bed, blankets, treats and some dog bags.Some reviews will say that you aren't on the ocean per say, which is true but it is literally a 2 minute walk across the parking lot (Which is really just a two lane road with some angle parking for people eating at Mo's) and Voila, you are at the beach (This is a whole lot closer than some of the other hotels which you need to drive or walk a ways to get to the beach). Lincoln City literally shuts down at 10 pm, so after that you can enjoy the sounds of the ocean. There are a few places to eat and a few shops within walking distance (Tiki's was delicious) and others within a quick 5 minute drive. Now to the rooms, the room we stayed in was 206 it was on the second floor, the rooms are quite spacious almost like a small apartment, it was clean and comfortable, had a fridge and a box fan (How many hotels have a fan). The only downside I will say is that the pillows they give you aren't very supported, I personally like a firm supported pillow for my head and neck, but these were like sleeping on air, you lay your head down and it fell right through it, and unfortunately I woke up several times during the night. All in all a GREAT place to stay, next time I will bring my own pillow from home.

The room was perfect! A kitchen with everything we needed, an incredibly comfortable king size bed, a private deck with chairs and table, a huge jacuzzi tub for two, and a fireplace. What more could we ask for. That doesn't even begin to cover the amazing front desk staff and close proximity to Mo's, the beach and the bay. What a romantic time we had. Loved our walk on the beach with our ice cream cones from two doors down. Wow, wow, wow!! Thank you for a wonderful night. How we wish it had been longer!
