We stayed in room 217. Pro's: Very friendly staff, including front desk folks and housekeeping. Clean, spacious, comfortable. Good kitchen facilities. Nice small view of the bay and tiny peak of ocean for sunset. Cons: noise, right on the street, lots of action even in the middle of the night. Footsteps from room above also noisy. Biggest con: smokers hanging... More

This is a great stay along the coast. What I enjoyed the most was a smiling face that greeted me when I walked in door. It's located on a bay that's near the ocean. Inside is a large room with a kitchen, table, pullout bed, and TV. There is a nice bathroom and bedroom as well. This is great for... More

I had a wonderful 4th. From management making sure we had the room We requested, to their hospitality of breakfast snacks, to even my doggie basket for Jake, my fantastic Retriever. I had spent July 4 here before, and it was so much fun. Too many people on beach but I got to watch fireworks from my room w my... More

Great spot across from Mo's in Lincoln City. Dog friendly room with bay/ocean view. Wonderful welcome basket with food and water bowls, treats and dog sheets to help keep rooms fresh. Very kind check in staff. Room clean and comfortable. We will be back.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Beds were comfortable, and staff was very friendly. My only negative would be the choice of breakfast items. Toaster took a long time, but the coffee was hot and the juice was tasty.

The best thing about the Looking Glass Inn is the location, right on the water. We enjoyed watching the people crabbing; lots of small groups around campfires as evening came. Our room was fine; clean and functional. Could use more reading light. The "breakfast" was disappointing--packaged pastry and coffee. Went to a restaurant instead. Staff was friendly and helpful with... More

We were greeted by a big smile and efficient service here at the Looking Glass Inn. The building was in great shape and the room was very nice. We had one of the Jacuzzi Suites. The bed was extra comfortable and we did sleep good! The room was really clean and had a nice little private balcony. If we would've... More

Long before it became the Looking Glass, this "charming inn" used to be a dumpy old beach hotel frequented by fishermen. We started staying there in the 70's before it became part of a chain. Prior to the Mo's expansion, there was a bait and tackle shop where we bought Charleston Chews and fish heads for our crab nets. I... More

This motel is located in a great spot close to the beach and a river outlet. People were doing crabbing from the rocks, and it's right across the road from a popular seafood restaurant, Mo's. Looking Glass Inn is the most dog-friendly motel we have ever stayed at. They had a basket of towels. treats, and bowls for our dog,... More
