“Great for extended families with pets”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

We booked the largest 2-BR with view for the bay and fireplace for three of us and a dog, but had the other 7 family over for dinner on Sat. Great location for teens to wander while adults chatted. BBQ on premises. Clean and convenient. We had a great time there. Will definitely return

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with another couple in August. The location was beautiful, right across the street from the cove and beach. It was removed from the business of Lincoln City and convenient to the beach.The suite was spacious for 2 couples and the pullout couch was comfortable. We liked the full kitchen for sandwiches and drinks.
All the staff was helpful. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Took my mom over for her 86th birthday and brought my chocolate lab! Got a first floor room with a view of the bay - absolutely perfect! Loved the dog basket we received, the continental breakfast was just fine with plenty to eat. The grounds are kept very nice, with a great "pet area" for potty breaks! Kitchen area was kinda small, but very workable - would have liked to have a jacuzzi tub, but mom couldn't do the stairs - maybe next time when I come with hubby! Will definitely come back because of the easy access to the beach and the fact that they take pets over 25 lbs, and for a reasonable price. Thanks to the staff who were very friendly and accomodating! Will be sending pictures of my dog for the dog blog! Excellent place!

Our Labor Day weekend stay was outstanding! Nice, clean 2nd floor studio with bay view and deck was spacious and very comfortable. The staff was so very welcoming, friendly, responsive and informative. Great location for beach walks and proximity to restaurants and shops. Looking Glass is very dog-friendly, as advertised, and our beagle loved it as much as we did! We'll definitely come back, and highly recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Nice variety of accommodations available. Nice to have bay/ocean view and deck.

From reading other reviews we expected a nice spot. It exceeded our expectations. Staff,hotel,ammenities,location(including VERY dog freindly) were top notch !
Our room faced the ocean and the activities were great to watch, without being noisy or disturbing.

Room Tip: Request an ocean view room.

We decided on a last minute, post Labor Day, trip down the Oregon Coast and booked the Looking Glass based upon a recent Sunset Magazine article. Looking Glass is one of those rare hotels that is better than their website pictures. With our late booking, we ended up on the first floor in what I think is the original building - not disappointing at all. Full kitchen, separate bedroom, huge window overlooking the beach and bay. Clean and tidy with a sort of Nantucket laid back cool. Next time we're bringing our Great Pyrenees! Loved the place. Staff is friendly and cheerful. They were very helpful in making last minute dinner reservations, and everything else, too. It's the kind of place you "discover" and keep going back. Go! You'll be happy you did.

Very nice room. Bed was very comfortable. Enjoyed the jacuzzi. Could see the bay and a little bit of the ocean. We engaged having the kitchen. The continental breakfast was OK.. The breakfast items were all pre-packaged, but there was plenty. Great place to get some R&R. we'll go back the next time we head to Lincoln City.
