We (including our Labrador retriever) love staying at the Looking Glass Inn, and our recent visit was great! We stayed in a ground-floor unit that accommodated two couples. The rooms were immaculate and had a wonderful view of the bay & the ocean. We love the easy access to the beach as well as walking to nearby restaurants and stores. Looking forward to another visit!!

There is no doubt we will go back to this hotel. The staff was very friendly at check in and in the morning at breakfast. This was our first trip with our Irish Wolfhound. I would suggest getting a room on the ground floor. The stairs are open and it confused our pup as she has no problem going up closed stairs. We spent a great deal of time trying to get her settled down but other dogs have been there and she walked around the room incessantly.

Thankfully the hotel provides sheets to cover the beds. It was raining and to our surprise the four legged one jumped on one. Saved us a cleaning fee having the beds covered.

The fireplace and view are nice to have when visiting the beach. The view from our room was across a parking lot and Mo's (separate review). We enjoyed being able to park at the hotel and take a walk down to the beach without worrying about parking on the street.

Thanks again for a terrific stay. It was so much better than our stay at another previous Lincoln City hotel (see our review history).

Room Tip: We would choose a whirlpool suite should we go again WITHOUT the dog.

This was our first visit to Looking Glass Inn and we really enjoyed our stay. Our room had a full kitchen and bedroom and was really clean. The furniture and bed was really comfortable. People at the front desk were great and very informative. The rates here are reasonable and they are dog friendly. They even have a grassy area just for your dog. Included in your rate is a very good continental breakfast with plenty of food. Overall, we were very happy here and would return.
The beach is a short walk and is really quite beautiful and goes for miles and miles. Mo's restaurant is right across the street.

My boyfriend Jason and I have enjoyed the looking glass inn very much. We have stayed at this hotel twice now, both for long weekends during both the spring and winter months. Every time the hotels are kept clean and tidy. We prefer the whirlpool suite, and it is worth the money. The tub is clean and soothing, the beds are kept nicely with comfy pillows and comforter. They do allow dogs at this location which gives it a really laid back feel. It is adjacent to Moe's Chowder House, and their food is delicious!! The only reason I am not giving 5 stars on this is because the 2nd time we stayed at the looking glass I had an unfortunate breakfast surprise. I grabbed cereal and milk from the lobby for the free breakfast and the milk was chunky and sour, I almost got sick! When I called the front desk to let them know, they said they had ALREADY had that report? So why keep the spoiled milk in the lobby? It wasn't the best way to end my trip. Other than that, this location is great, near local shops, boutiques and local restaurants & cafes. I would recommend this and have many times! Great value!

We were prepared to go to yet another Best Western but decided first to check reviews in TripAdvisor; after reading the positive reviews on LGI we drove directly to check it out - we were not disappointed! Even though we arrived without calling first, the receptionist was warm and welcoming. We were offered a superior suite with a kitchenette and a fabulous view at a very reasonable rate.
The suite faced out towards the water (a very quite road in front), the decor is updated beachy taupes n greys with white accents...very soothing. The gleaming kitchen has a 2-ring burner (set into the counter), full fridge, microwave and just enough plates/utensils etc to make a light meal; everything so clean it looked brand new. The bedroom was seperate, also 'hotel chic' with crisp white bedding.
The only "con" to note; the bathroom is on the small side (don't expect a big soaker tub) and much to my chagrin there was no source of heat in there. In the summer this would not be an issure but in March it was a shivery experience but having said that it was absolutely gleaming/spotless. Also, it may be time to replace the sofabed in the livingroom (OH forgot to mention the gas fireplace...nice!)
we would love to return one day.

Room Tip: ask for an upper floor unit, overhead noise could be an issue.

This was our first time to stay at The Looking Glass Inn. Their website was easy to access and understand. Very nice staff and their doggie basket is great! Room was very clean and comfy. Beach is steps away which was nice and there is trails to follow. Continental breakfast is included and they had a wide assortment to choose from. We will definitely be staying there the next time we go to Lincoln City.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 102 which was easily accessible.
