This was out first stay at Looking Glass, but it will not be our last. The service was friendly and helpful. We did bring two of our dogs, and they made sure we had everything to make them comfortable as well. The room was large and had all we needed, almost like a mini cottage just for ourselves, and we...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Our first time here and so wonderful it's our new home away from home! Lincoln City is a busy town with festivities throughout the year, so call early to book this hotel. Bay and Ocean view rooms along with being pet friendly and across the street from Mo's on 51st street. Nice breakfast, newspaper, full size tv.s and nice furnishings...

I really like the Looking Glass. It is clean and comfortable and walking distance to the beach. The staff are very nice and friendly. But this visit was a letdown. I booked my room months in advance and specifically requested an upper floor. At that time there were plenty of rooms available so I am pretty sure my request was...

Looking Glass has been our favorite place to stay for years! The hospitality is great, everyone so friendly. I really like how dog-friendly the Inn is; with dog beds, bowls, treats, and a spot for the dogs to sniff. It is great for all ages to be able to walk right out on the beach. We have gotten to know...

We loved this cute Inn! The staff is all friendly--the rooms very clean--spa tub great and the bed was ver comfy!! There were cookies in the evening and coffee all day long. There are no elevators--but climbing 3 floors was worth it!

I was excited to try this place, as I work in Lincoln City often and stay all over town. The views, location and room was great - thats where my good experience ended. I stayed in room 208 with room 206 above me. I was in town to work overnight on a weekend, and since I stay in several hundred...

We are so sorry that you had difficulty sleeping during the day. After checking on the guests above your room there didn't appear to be an excessive amount of noise for daytime hours. If there had been an upstairs room available we would have been more than happy to move you to a different room. We hope you will give...

Nice rooms very well stocked. Great view as well . Staff was very efficient and friendly . Would most definitely stay again...

I've been visiting the Oregon Coast for many years. I stay here almost every visit. Wonderful staff, location, and of course pet friendly. The rooms are ALWAYS clean, detailed, and nicely decorated. Another plus - my dog has never left the hotel with fleas! They really do take such good care of the property. I've stayed in almost every room...

This is a great place to stay. We come to Lincoln City several times a year and always stay here. The staff is friendly and is right across the street from our favorite restaurant Moe's, which is a plus because it's like we have a guaranteed spot to park as its always tough to find a place to park out...
