Have to say I was very suspect that this hotel was rated number 1 in the city and number 4 on the coast before we arrived. The owners have taken an older facility and turned it into a great stay! We did enjoy it, had a balcony room over looking the ocean, great location, nice clean rooms. The staff is... More

We received a gift card for Christmas for this little gem and used it this weekend. I will not stay anywhere else. They allow pets for 15.00 per night additionally and they cater to them. You receive a basket for your dog with food bowls, treats, towels to wipe their feet of sand, dog bed and a sheet to cover... More

We booked on line on our way down the coast based on trip advisor reviews. Happy to report previous reviewers were correct. Took a view room which gave us a great view of the bay (2nd floor would be even better). Loads of room, clean and well laid out. Added bonus was the on site coin laundry and breakfast. Enjoyed...

I can't say enough good things about this place! From the polite staff to the comfy beds and beautiful ocean views, our stay here was better than we could have anticipated if we had planned it. We just pulled off the 101 looking for a place to stay and found this gem. It happened to be our anniversary and they... More

We were doing some research online for a dog friendly hotel and ran across the Looking Glass Inn. It was a great experience from the beginning. The staff was really helpful and friendly and they even give you a little doggie basket with a few towels, bowls and treats! The room was clean and had great views. The bed was... More

We have been going to the Looking Glass Inn for several years. It is super dog friendly. They give you a basket of blankets, towels, bowls and sheets upon check-in. Of course the beach across the street is super convenient as is Mo's right across the street. We were there for three nights and for two of those we were... More

Only place I would ever consider. Staff is amazing. Great pet accommodations (wouldn't go anywhere without them). Beach access is right there. Plus can walk out onto the pier in the evening or early morning in your robe. It's perfect. If only Mo's would allow dogs........

Very dog and family friendly. Views of the bay and Ocean. Just take a right out of your door and a short stroll through a parking lot will put you on the beach. Lots of nice touches such as dog bowls, kitchen appointed with dishes paper towels etc and a fireplace! Writing this makes me want to go back.

I chose Looking Glass Inn because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and wasn’t disappointed. Not only the fantastic view from our balcony, a jacuzzi tub, robes, little mini kitchen and what a comfy bed. In fact we’re looking for a new mattress and I’m going to call and find out what brand mattress they use. The staff couldn’t have been... More

This was our first visit to Lincoln City. The Looking Glass Inn was recommended by a friend who has been visiting this location multiple times a year for many years!
