We recently stayed at the Looking Glass Inn for a weekend. Service was great. The complimentary breakfast was great. Nice area for walking the dogs. Room was clean. There is no restaurant directly linked to the hotel. There is a Mo's Restaurant across the street, which is a super short walk. The view is gorgeous.

Room Tip: Get a room with a kitchen facing the bay, it is a real treat!

We visit Lincoln City pretty often and stay at various hotels that allow dogs. This was the nicest dog friendly hotel that we have stayed in in Lincoln City. The rooms are nice, they allow dogs of all sizes ( a huge plus when you have a big dog), and the rooms were clean and spacious. The only complaint that I had was that there were no ocean views. But the beach access was great and it is located in a great part of town.

We stayed 3 nights in Lincoln City and 4 nights in Cannon Beach during spring break. We had not traveled with our dog prior to this trip. The inn was very welcoming. The other guests were also friendly. We felt comfortable being there with our pet, more so than our place in Cannon Beach which advertised as being pet-friendly. The room set-up was ideal. We like eating in for some of our meals so having a full kitchen was a nice bonus. It was clean and looked to be recently remodeled. We like being right on the ocean and our room overlooked Mo's and the bay, which is why I stated satisfactory views. Overall, great place and would definitely stay there again when traveling with our dog.

Stayed there for 2 nights and received great service. The room was very clean and had all necessary amenities. Our dogs loved this place. We were right next the the ocean which made it great for quick walks to the beach.

Our goal was to have a room with immediate access to the beach and ocean, pet friendly, and clean. The Looking Glass fulfilled every single one of these requests. My children thought the bathroom was small; but, it served our purposes. I liked having the dispensers rather than bottles. I always feel guilty about those small little bottles and landfill avoidance. Smart move!

The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable. The staff very polite and friendly. I loved the pet area and provision of "doggy bags" and treats.

Good advice was offered for cleaning footwear. I'm not sure if I didn't see it; but a guest foot/shoe clean-off area would be helpful in ensuring carpets remain easy to clean despite beach exposure.

The laundry room had a plus and minus. The minus was access. Investing in key access might place less burden on staff and offer security as well. Plus, hotel provided laundry and dryer items for washing and prices for laundry were very reasonable.

Final comment: I underestimated travel time from Sacramento to Lincoln City. Staff was able to accomodate my late arrival. Only negative to offer in this regard might be an optional late checkout of 3:00 p.m. to complement late guest arrival and late guest checkout options.

All-in-all, the location and staff were wonderful. Rooms were nice and clean. If time, opportunity, and finance presents itself to be guests again, the Looking Glass is tops on the list.

Room Tip: 2nd/third floor with kids. If view is a premium for stay, choose west facing rooms with balcony to...
