Nice little place, nothing fancy, which is ok. Just the basics. Across from the bay and Mo's. Low key, very dog friendly. Nice little breakfast. Clean. Sofa not comfy. Bed-very comfy. Good price. Wi-fi didn't work on our ground floor room. (seems to be a recurring theme). Full kitchen.

My husband and I ended up at the Looking Glass Inn as we traveled and explored the Oregon Coast. We had been moving a lot and camping and it the Looking Glass was our oasis in the coastal desert! We were offered a view king whirlpool suite and although it was on on the top floor (stairs only), once we... More

When searching for a hotel to stay at I noticed that The Looking Glass Inn was rated number one on Trip Advisor. I chose it because it was right next to Mo's and across the street from the beach. We stayed for one night in a whirlpool suite that also had a gas fireplace for a great price. The room... More

Our vacations plans fell apart and we decided to head to the beach. Had always thought The Looking Glass Inn looked interesting (when we were headed to Mo's for dinner on past trips!) We were not disappointed...from the cheerful welcome at the front desk, to the fresh cookies, super clean room and lovely soft comfy bed with high end bedding.... More

I recently stayed at the Looking Glass Inn just prior to the July 4th Holiday. The weather was perfect, and the location was as well! The bay is right out the front door, which is perfect for those swimmers that don't want to take on Ocean waves. And at low tide, a beach walk for sea shells is just a... More

I chose the Looking Glass Inn on the reviews from Trip Advisor. I stayed for 3 nights and it was great. The rooms were clean and comfy. We had a room with a gas fireplace, which was nice. The beds were comfortable. Great location, next to the beach. The assistant manager at the front desk told me the nearby spot... More

Super cute place in the historic Taft district. If you enjoy vintage looking cottages and street lights you'll love this area. The front desk staff was so nice and helpful. She got us matches to light a fire on the beach which is just steps from the hotel. We weren't able to bring our dog, but clearly a dog lover's... More

Once you stay here, you won't want to stay anywhere else in Lincoln City. Especially, if you have a dog (kid). You get a wonderful welcome basket with milk-bones, towels and bowls for your four-legged family member, and these guests are treated like "people" too! The lobby staff is the friendliest and always go out of the way to make... More

I booked a three night stay with my girlfriend at the Looking Glass Inn because of the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor and I can honestly say I am not sorry that I did. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and such a wonderful value for the money. Yes you're right outside of Mo's, which can be good and bad depending... More

The Looking Glass Inn is a very well maintained property that is a stones throw from the beach. The rooms do not have AC, but there is pretty much a steady ocean breeze that keeps the rooms at a comfortable temp. We had a second floor room with a balcony and were very happy with the view. The complimentary breakfast... More
