The reservation process was simple. They even gave us a free upgrade and our dogs LOVED their basket of goodies. The place was spotless and the people were so so so friendly. The continental breakfast was decent. We cant wait to return to the looking glass inn!!

Great time had by all: parents, kid, and dog. Very dog friendly property, and less than 100 steps away you are on the beach. Very clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi was spotty at best, the ONLY bad thing. We will be back!

Been going to Looking Glass Inn for many years. They are always thoughtful. The rooms are very well kept. The beds and linens are very nice. I love the special basket they make for the guests who bring their dogs.

Great location to a beautiful driftwood beach perfect for night beach fires. Nice accommodations. Pet friendly. Friendly staff. We loved our stay. The only negative that I had was that you feet turned black over time if you didn't wear shoes.

We stayed here only on night on a cool, windy night. Am disabled so we had a downstairs room and the bathroom was well set up to ADA standards. Last major remodel was 10 years ago when néw building was added but our room was very comfortable and clean, something I am picky about being disabled. The bed was super... More

We were extremely pleased with the accommodations and would strongly recommend to others. The room was immaculate and the staff at the desk very friendly and accommodating. We inquired where to find the best seafood restaurant and was directed a few miles from the motel and it too met all of our expectations.

Looking Glass Inn is a super place. They are very dog friendly, even supplying dishes, treats and sheets for the dogs to sleep on. The view of the Siletz River and Bay is wonderful. Good access to the beach. Catch the seals sunning on the spit at the mouth of the bay. Close to very good restaurants. We enjoy staying... More

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... More
