We started our Oregon Coast adventure to the north in Cannon Beach, so I figured Lincoln City would be a good place to spend the night as we headed south along the coast. I chose Looking Glass Inn because of the good reviews I read on Tripadvisor. I was very pleased with this hotel. We reserved a third story jacuzzi...

My husband, our dog Dusty and I have been coming to Lincoln City for about 8 years. We've probably stayed in a dozen hotels, motels and B&Bs. But we have now found the only place we'll ever stay - The Looking Glass Inn. The staff were so wonderful and accommodating, the rooms were perfectly clean, the doggie 'welcome basket' and...

I was looking for a romantic getaway spot in Lincoln city and we had never stayed at the looking glass before, I decided to spend more to get one of the jacuzzi rooms but was disappointed by the noise of the tub. Not only was it ridiculously loud in our room but when the room next door turned theirs on...

We are very sorry that this guest didn't enjoy their stay with us. Our Whirlpool Suites do have bay or ocean views over the 51st street promenade. We strive to have clean, well maintained rooms at all times. We sincerely apologize for the miscommunication with housekeeping.

Loved the place and will return. Easy access to lots of beach. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is great and we liked that we could take back to the room on a tray. Our critters loved to be able to get on the bed with their people.

This is a very pleasant inn in a perfect location. It is right by the beach, with views of the bay. The neighborhood is very quiet at night. The room was very large, with a fridge/micro. They are extremely pet friendly; even give you a basket with sheets,towels, and doggie dishes. The employees are so friendly and helpful; a dream...

Looking Glass Inn is a right and proper DREAM! The location is ridiculous, right there on the beach and the bay and just across from Mo's. A great place to watch some seals waddle about, and have a fantastic fire on the beach. The staff was super accommodating and friendly. We had to move rooms and the staff moved all...

We reserved a 2 room suite last minute and it was HUGE! Very clean and all the amenities you need, full size fridge, microwave, oven, full sink, its more like an apartment than a hotel room. Management was friendly. The location is also great, just steps from the beach, my only regret is that we didnt stay longer!!

The stay was excellent, the staff was accommodating, and the room was perfect. The only complaint that I could have is that the water pressure and temperature was not reliable. Other than that everything was great. I really loved coming into the room and having a birthday card and champagne.
