“Best of Two Worlds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We are two adults who reserved the two bedroom suite for three nights here ($178 per night in October), sharing a vacation with a friend who has two dogs. She had a smaller suite in the adjacent building ~ very convenient!
Our apartment was huge ~ hers perfectly adequate. We met after breakfast (served in the office, but with trays so you could take it to your rooms) for walks with her dogs. From this wonderful location you can stroll to the left along the bay all the way up to the small park at 101 (great interpretative info in park kiosk)) then back, passing Looking Glass, Mo's, the pier and the salmon fishermen standing on the bayshore, to the ocean. A left turn there takes you along the beach to Inn at Spanish Head where you should have at least one dinner in their rooftop restaurant (early bird specials before 5:30). The rocks here at low tide have colonies of star fish that are spectacular. There is a great difference between the bay walk and that of the oceanside. Both fascinating.
This is a Westover Inn and so the staff is outstanding in service, the accommodations always sparkling clean, the locations near other attractions. We will be going back and so will our friend and her dogs!

Room Tip: We will take the upstairs suite next time because it has an even better view, and so we will not hav...

My new husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon stay at Looking Glass Inn. Jacuzzi everyday, cooking what we like in the kitchenette, watching the ocean tide from every window in the room and balcony, excellent room service, friendly staff. We love it there.

Room Tip: Corner suites are great, wonderful view of ocean and bay.

Not only do they accept dogs of all sizes but this hotel welcomes your pet with a basket with food and water dishes. Extra "dog" towels for the beach and dog biscuits instead of chocolates.

Many of us who are "dog people" find it hard to travel with our pets. The Looking Glass Inn makes it a pleasure. Located in the historic Taft District the Inn sits across from the famous chowder house Mo's. Easy access to a great walking beach that goes for miles.

As a person who spends half their life in a hotel I enjoy a place I can stay.....walk around and enjoy what the locals have. This is one of those places. A grocery store you can walk to and a room you can cook in. Free continental breakfast and a very friendly staff makes this place feel like home.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who travels with their dog. It truly is a "Dog Hotel" that takes Humans. Big thumbs up.

Room Tip: The rooms that are in the most demand are the ones that are just behind the reception office.

As always our stay at Looking Glass was wonderful. Service was excellent and the hospitality was great. Looking Glass is our favorite stay on the coast and we look forward to visiting again.

We've stayed at the Looking Glass Inn half a dozen times now and it truly is the best place to stay in Lincoln City. The staff and rooms are always wonderful and the location can't be beat. Great place to bring your dogs, pooch friendly all the way. We have stayed at quite a few other hotels in Lincoln city but we always come back to the looking glass, for the price, location, room and staff you'll have a hard time going any where else.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

this is the best place to go for the weekend, awesome view of the Siletz going into the ocean, great beach walking. We always stay in a room connected to the office. We love the accomodations, kitchen, accessories in the bathroom to use, the most comfortable bed in the world! A big screen TV to watch, a nice fireplace in the evenings, a nice view. The only thing I would change would be to get a more comfortable couch to sit on. You have a nice breakfast offered too. And a must is to welcome our weiner dog. We admire on how clean the room is and very sanitary. thank you

Jacuzzi tub and robes are nice for a relaxing weekend. The location and proximity to attractions in the area was nice too!
