Overall, a good choice but some aesthetic updates should be made. Very clean & comfortable with good linens. Nice people. Room layout a bit odd with bathroom next to entry door. Wouldn't consider their breakfast offerings (all packaged) but at least they have them. There is a sign on a little refrigerator in the lobby saying the contents can only... More

Footsteps from the beach. Very nice staff welcomed us. Plenty of parking. Loved our ocean view room with an in room Jacuzzi tub. Only thing, if you do get one of the upper rooms with the great view, be ready for some steps. Didn't bother it's much though. Great choice

We stayed here 2 years ago and finally made it back. It's still a great place, but we weren't able to get a room with a balcony this time. That's not the hotel's fault, but it does seem like I can't quite stick the fifth star on this review because the room felt a bit more ordinary than the last... More

The staff was very helpful and friendly. We arrived at 3pm and were able to check in early. The rooms are roomy for a family of five and there are 2 bathrooms and a kitchen an added bonus. We definitely will be back.

We had a 3rd floor suite, with ocean view... altho that view also included the hotel parking lot and the beach access parking area and the Moe's restaurant traffic. So, not what we expected for a premium room. No elevators, so the walk up may be challenging for some guests.The staff was friendly & accommodating... and the place was really... More

The staff contacted me in advance to know when to expect us. Our room was clean and very accommodating. It was nice to have Moe's across the street. It was even better to wake up and walk on the beach!

I never know what to expect when renting at the coast, sight unseen, but our room was immaculate. The jacuzzi was large enough for two and soothed our tired muscles. The continental breakfast was very nice, along with cookies in the lobby each night. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were leery of staying in a "pet friendly"... More

Nothing but love when it comes to Maggie, Terry and the rest of the crew. This is the second year I have spent my birthday at The Looking Glass Inn and I wouldn't want to spend it anywhere else. The amazing views and beautiful friends!

Great layout, nice large rooms. Worked out really well for our family and our dog enjoyed it as well! Wish we could have stayed longer. It's definitely made our list of best places to stay at the beach!
