“Stay Here”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stayed two nights could not be more pleased with this motel. We stayed in two rooms because we wanted the whirlpool suite one night. Both rooms were great. Ocean and bay views. Cleanest motel we have ever stayed in on any trip. Winter rates under $100. Rooms were large, beds very comfortable. Front desk staff was very good and accomodating. Could do a little better for breakfast. We will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator. Some rooms are on the third floor and stair ways are narrow. Office staff will...

What a relief this place is. Traveling along the coast and booking hotels by the night, you get some good but more expensive places, and you get some reasonably priced places, that could be better, but the Looking Glass is the rare breed that is both good and reasonably priced. Very well run by pleasant people, clean comfortable rooms with quality beds and linens. Coffee in the room, wi-fi, good water pressure and hot water. TV works. I was a little concerned since this place seems a bit over the top about dogs, but the room was clean and smelled fine. Our stay was unblemeshed. Good breakfast down in the lobby in the morning and I think they have cookies at night! Highly recommended.

When I called they were very pleasant on the phone, we reserved a room and ended up staying an extra night because we liked it so much. The view is very pretty especially if you have an end room. The room was very spacious and we had the one bedroom deluxe. It was like an apartment very big for a hotel. My husband and I enjoyed having our dogs with and playing on the beach. The service was awesome, and the rooms very clean. We will be back again soon! I will recommend this Inn to everyone I know!

Looking Glass is very close to walkable beaches and fun neighborhood shops. We enjoyed the whirlpool bathtub, fireplace and surroundings. We were visiting Lincoln City to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, and were looking for a couples weekend - mission accomplished! Enjoyed lunch at Mo's across the street, a long walk collecting agates and seashells on the beach, pizza by the fire, and the whirlpool bathtub.

My husband and our two fur children arrived on the 22nd. Which happens to be my birthday. The staff had decorated our room with Christmas Lights and had a bottle of Champagne and a Birthday card waiting for me. The attention to detail is exceptional. Presents under the tree hand chosen for the fur babies. Who could ask for me.

This is our 3rd. visit to the Looking Glass and we already have our reservations for next Christmas. Cannot think of a better way to spend the holidays.

Room Tip: Anything behind the office will have a nice view of the bay. But if you don't have dogs they hav...

We had a Christmas trip planned at the beach with our dog. They are always so friendly at the Looking Glass Inn. They had a tree set up with presents for the doggie guests which we got to pick out and put his name on. The basket with towels and sheets along with little treats makes coming here special. They cater to the dogs!! The beach and Mo's are right across the street and the rooms are always clean and fresh. A very good value.
