This hotel is in a very pretty part of the city, on a narrow one way street with old frame houses lining each side. I had to wait for the "innkeeper" since I had arrived late, but that was no problem since it was so pleasant to sit on the front porch swing! My room was very tastefully decorated in... More

We stayed at the Looking Glass to go to an event in downtown Indianapolis. Breakfast was delicious and promptly served. Nice to have time to enjoy the shared spaces -- read in one of two living rooms, make tea in the butler's pantry and then take to room.

Kathy, the innkeeper, was a wonderful hostess. We really enjoyed talking to her. We stayed in the Hideaway room, which is huge! After thanksgiving dinner with the family, we had the entire family up to our room for the evening and it accommodated 20 of us easily. With a kitchen right in the room to heat up leftovers and a...

Our stay at the Looking Glass Inn was completely pleasant. We were greeted quickly, shown around the house, and taken to our room. We were told were the snacks were located, how to enter and exit, where to park, etc. Our room was beautiful, and roomy. We had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious, and the dining room was gorgeous.... More

We found this gem when we were coming to Indianapolis for an event at the Lucas Oil Stadium. Such a wonderful alternative to a hotel room! I would always recommend booking directly with any bed & breakfast and not booking thru a booking website (i.e., Expedia). All of the contact I had with the manager of this bed & breakfast... More

I visited Indianapolis for a 2 day business workshop and stayed at Looking glass Inn for one night. I needed something close to Meridian street location and this inn was 1.5 miles from Childrens museum. I made my reservation through expedia and was informed this was a non-refundable reservation. Within a few mins of my reservation I received a call... More

My four sisters and I very much enjoyed our two nights at this inn. It was spacious, clean, quiet, comfortable, attractive, and within walking distance of many restaurants and activities. Continental breakfast was quite good, but not spectacular.

This Inn looked great online. We found it easily. The house was lovely and to period. The mattresses were in terrible shape and felt like they were very old and cheap. The bathrooms weren't well updated and had some low water pressure issues. Our stay was just OK.
