The staff was very friendly...especially to our dog. The room was clean and near the beach. We have reservations to go back next month and we are taking friends with us. We are taking our dog. She gives them an A+ rating too.

We spent one night here on our travels up the coast. Wished we had booked two nights! Clean rooms, great service, comfortable beds and Mo's restaurant a few steps away. Beach access was right across the street and was a perfect place to view the sea lions across the water as well as a beautiful sunset. Continental breakfast was provided...

We traveled north on 101 and Looking Glass was a great way to end the trip before heading home to Redmond. We had room 205, which was quite large with a view of the bay. They don't just tolerate dogs, they pamper them. A couple things to be aware of - the rooms do not have air conditioning, so if...

We love coming here! It was our 7 year marriage anniversary and I wanted to take my wife on a little romantic weekend away.

We spent one night with our dog. The staff there was so friendly and the rooms were very nice. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. There was a welcoming basket for our dog that had sheets, towels, food and water dishes and 2 dog treats in it. The location was great too, being so close to...

We did not plan ahead, just showed up in town and started calling hotels to see availability. We had a large room with kitchenette, very clean and comfortable. Our room had an indoor hot tube Jacuzzi, nice set up. Bed slept really nice.

After a terrible experience with another nearby so-called " spa resort", we ended up here and we are so thankful that we did. Hilary was very sweet and showed me the largest room they had (we were traveling with our three kids) and we were blown away. Right on the beach, walking distance to Mo's and the IGA. Our room...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was clean and neat. Loved the area, the ocean view was lovely. We stayed on the second floor and could hear every step from the floor above us, but that was not a real problem

Spent 2 nights at the Looking Glass last week for the first time, and enjoyed our stay. Nice location. Clean rooms. Good price. Great shower. Only 2 small issues but they did not really effect the quality of our stay. One was that the wifi wasn't the strongest, if you were at the table by the front window you were...
