Looking Glass Inn is a rustic, 1950ish inn with a friendly staff, special welcome basket for canine visitors and a more than adequate continental breakfast. Looking Glass' location make it a great jumping off point for exploring the Oregon coast as well as for checking out the beach and surf directly across the street.

We spent one night here on a recent quick coast trip with the dogs. Our first surprise came when we checked into our room and found that the dog room was a suite with a kitchen. We weren't expecting that, and it was nice to have the extra space. We didn't really use the kitchen, other than the refrigerator, and... More

To celebrate my husband's 70th Birthday, I made a reservation at this beautiful, cozy and VERY clean Inn across from Mo's! It was delightful to be so close to the famous restaurant plus our glass fusing workshop was just down the street! I enjoyed our stay so much that I made reservations for a girls getaway in October with my... More

This was the best place ever. Super friendly staff. Very clean room. NO smell of dogs, although a very dog-friendly place! Seemed very safe. Ideal location. Great continental breakfast choices. Could not have asked for anything better. We will be back!!!!!

We had the 1 bedroom which was very spacious with 2 separate bathrooms, 2 queen beds, separate living room with couch & chairs plus dining area. full kitchen, tv in each room for the kids. Very clean, can be noisy at times with dogs, people below or above you but that's pretty much any older hotel on the oregon coast.... More

I have stayed here for the past 5 years. The beach and Siletz Bay is astounding, as well as the accommodations.They are especially dog friendly, including a special doggie basket at the reception desk when you check in. If you like beach-combing, this is the place for you! Agates, jasper, shells, beach glass & fossils are all available on this... More

Great place to spend the night on the Oregon coast. Very dog friendly. Well appointed kitchen. It was nice to have our cocktails in real glasses rather than hotel plastic cups. Beautiful setting. Only downside was that the room had a bit of a funky odor. We would definitely stay at Looking Glass Inn again

Beautiful place near the beach and exploring. The room was very quaint and clean. Both myself and my dogs were well received. I would love to stay longer next time. I wish there had been a decent restaurant near by. I didn't feel like driving and Mo's across the street is horrible. Sorry, all fried and unhealthy. But it was... More

Nice place, clean and well maintained. All the staff we interacted with were pleasant and cheerful. Nice location for a beach stroll and sunset. Quaint and a quiet place. We saw harbor seals and an eagle on our walk. Staff was helpful and we'll informed of surrounding area. We felt well taken care of here.
