This is such a special place … beautiful property with very friendly and accommodating staff right on the beach . My husband and I traveled with our dog and had such a magical trip that we did not want to leave . The room we had was spotless and very comfortable .We started each morning with coffee and breakfast provided in the office and would then walk to the beach and enjoy the day . In the evening we would enjoy the fire and chat with some very lovely people. We cannot Thank the front office enough for all the love and attention the gave our sweet dog. She decided to have several visits each day and was always loved up and given a dog treat. We cannot wait to return and spend more time at the Looking glass Inn .

We stayed for a couple of days for our 42nd wedding anniversary. It was very nice! The Inn knew it was our anniversary and had a gift and card for us :). The staff was so nice and helpful. We brought along our new little pup and she loved the walks on the beach that was right across the street. Moe's Restaurant also right across the street. Good food, comfortable room, and we even had a couple of nice days of weather. Thank you Looking Glass Inn for making this a memorable trip.

We really enjoyed our stay - nice quiet location at the end of a street - great place to bring a dog - stone’s throw from the beach. Super friendly staff…we plan to stay again and would definitely recommend!

I needed a place to relax, and chose Looking Glass Inn for their amazing amenities. I was particularly happy with the included balcony and fireplace, but the kitchenette and whirlpool bath right in the living room were truly over the top! Also over the top was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff (John carried my bags up to the third floor and two of the the amazing cleaning crew graciously helped me carry my bags down. Thank you!!!) The delicious breakfast and expansiveness of the property, including a gas fire pit to sit and chat with others also added immeasurably to my pleasure. The "Senior Discount" and "Best Available" prices were lower than on any other website, so I was very glad I had booked directly with the hotel. And did I mention the location? Directly across from the beach, from Mo's and from the historic pier! I'll be back!

The Looking Glass Inn was a phenomenal place for my 26th birthday getaway. The staff was great and even accommodated a late checkout for the occasion. A beautiful view of the beach from our room, wonderful jacuzzi tub in the room, and right across the street from Mo's. A beach entrance walking distance from the rooms and very close to Shucker's oyster bar, The Looking Glass Inn had everything and more I had hoped for. I will certainly return.

This is our 3rd time staying here. We enjoy it as the price is right, location is great and knowing that it is truly pet friendly, makes its very relaxing for all of us. You are given a welcome basket for your dog, there is outside green space for your pet with trash bins. The access to the beach is right there, just a short walk. We stayed upstairs in a 2-bedroom suite. We have German Shepherd and she seemed really happy with the space. So, we will continue with staying in the 2 bedrooms. We will definitely be back. Oh the staff is always friendly :-)

We've stayed here a few times. It is always a great stay! Great access to the bay and beaches. Set in the Taft District in South Lincoln City, so a great home-base. The service is great. They are always happy to help. Lots of amenities you don't get at other places. Free continental breakfast and evening cookies! We stayed in the King Bed with jacuzzi room. Rooms are updated and clean and large with a small kitchen and perfect views of the beach! You won't be disappointed!

Clean rooms, very friendly staff, good continental breakfast. We had 4 rooms booked. Each had a great view, one had a fireplace, and one was a spa room. All had comfortable beds and roomy bathroom . Easy walking distance to restaurants and a grocery store. Across the parking lot from a nice beach. This place isn't just dog friendly, it is very dog accomadating. You get a pet basket with dog towel, treats, bowls and a cover to put over the bedspread. There is a small, well maintained doggy area.
