Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Many travelers commend the Looking Glass Inn for its excellent location near Siletz Bay and local dining, as well as its pet-friendly policies. The hotel's inviting atmosphere, characterized by cozy fireplaces and bay views, captures guests' attention, although a few note the rooms could use refreshment. The staff's warm welcome is frequently mentioned, but there have been some concerns about declining service quality. While the inn is generally considered a good value with its affordable rates, some guests feel that the level of amenities has diminished over time.

No where on the website or in person when checking in said that all rooms were pet rooms. So people who have allergies or sensitivities are left to eat benadryl and puff up like a balloon. It was just 10pm when we got back from having dinner ect. Couldn't talk to anyone until the next morning first thing. Please note. All rooms except the jacuzzi rooms are pet rooms. Also the breakfast area is extremely small, so when people all come at the same time, you get elbowed and crossed over. No one has manners anymore. No excuse me, pardon me, reaching next to you...NOTHING. it's a big nope for us!!!

We sincerely apologize your stay wasn't what you expected. There is always someone available after office hours if there is an urgent need and we are happy to move guests to a different room if we have one available. We are so sorry other guests were inconsiderate in the breakfast area. We truly hope you'll return and stay in one our pet-free Whirlpool Suites or we have a sister property in town, Pelican Shores Inn, that is completely pet free.

Hotel's Favorite
So nice to return to our absolute favorite place, The Looking Glass Inn. It never disappoints and we found it as we always do.Comfortable , clean , and welcoming. We enjoyed views of the bay while relaxing by the fire in between long walks with our dog Harbor. Terry and the others who work here are so kind and my dog adores her visit to the office to beg for treats . The breakfast and coffee bar are perfect for a nice quick way to start the day. The beds and linens are excellent and we always have a great nights rest . It’s walkable to many cute shops and restaurants too . We count the days until our next visit.

We used to love this inn, we have been coming here for at least 20 years, however in recent years it has gone way down hill. The prices continue to rise, yet you get less and less, for instance: no maid service unless you request it; very little in the way of coffee service like there used to be; and the continental breakfast is a bit of a joke (as there is very little offered)…nothing like it used to be. The customer service is also not like it used to be…the staff used to be very friendly, helpful, and communicated very well, but now not so much. This time, prior to arriving I had a request that I sent an email about and other than acknowledging that it was received, I never got a response to my inquiry. The rooms are not as clean as they used to be either…the carpets are filthy! I doubt that we will return in the future as they no longer live up to what we had come to expect from our past experiences. Very sad!

We are so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We strive to provide excellent customer service and we apologize if we fell short. We are always happy to provide daily housekeeping service. In the last year we upgraded the coffee to a rich, locally sourced blend, and we haven't made any changes to the continental breakfast. We are very sorry if you were expecting something different. We value our return guests, and we truly hope you'll stay with us in the future.

The location of The Looking Glass Inn is perfect. It is right across the street from the from a beautiful beach. Shopping, groceries, and restaurants are all within walking distance. The rooms are very clean and have all the amenities anyone wants or needs. We have two small dogs and being able to take them with us is a plus. We enjoyed the continental breakfast and the cookies offered in the evening. Staff are helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much!

The location is great. Close to the beach, some eateries and a great ice cream shop. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. My only complaint is that our room was on the second floor and there is no elevator. I don’t think that information was on the website.

We enjoyed our long weekend stay, great beach location! Close walking distance to coffee, restaurants and glass shops. The staff is super helpful and our room was clean and comfortable. They allow dogs and we’ve already re-booked for 2024!

If you are travelling with a dog, Looking Glass Inn is a wonderful option. They provide a basket in your room containing towels, bowls, sheets to cover the furniture (yea!), treats and poop bags. The office staff is lovely, and the property is well kept and fairly quiet. My only quibble is that the rooms are not air conditioned (which was a problem for one night of my stay) and the parking lot is brightly illuminated so that if you want to place a (motel supplied)fan in the window to cool things off, you'll let in too much light to sleep. Also, the motel is on a cul de sac across from Mo's restaurant and public beach, so there are trash and delivery trucks very early in the morning, and they are pretty noisy.

Nice if you need to be mid-coast. Guest assistants were very helpful. Decent continental breakfast. Bay view pretty. A few shops within walking distance. Area is well kept and room was clean. Some homeless around the area.
