“Looking Glass Inn and Lincoln City Half Marathon”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

We have stayed two years in a row at the Looking Glass in conjunction with the Lincoln City Half Marathon. It is close to start/finish area and they have allowed us to have a late check out following the race. Very nice office folks, clean facility and reasonable rates for Oregon Coast. And, beautiful sunsets!!

Room Tip: We stayed two years-one year my husband and I had a king room with jacquzzi and the second year, I w...

My husband and I stayed at the Looking Glass Inn with our dog recently, and all three of us had a great time. The hotel is really accommodating to people with dogs, they even give you a little doggie welcome basket when you check in. The hotel itself is not posh by any means, but it is very clean and well kept. The staff was great, as was the free continental breakfast in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fireplace.

The whole experience is fantastic. The rooms are big and spa-like. It was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Staff is very warm and inviting and the hotel is located in the historic Taft district. Also, if you look out in the bay-you'll see the cutest little seals!

My husband and I wanted to go on vacation on a budget and with a dog. Staying at the Looking Glass Inn helped us accomplish that. They have great rates, especially off season and not only do they accept dogs, they welcome them - with their own welcome basket! It was like having our own apartment across the street from the beach. What a deal!

Once a year, or twice, we take a mini Vacation to Lincoln City. We always stay at the Looking Glass Inn, dog friendly, but absolutely no sign in the rooms that a dog stayed there. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The Beds are the best! We always get a good night sleep. Get little snacks at night, and a breakfast in the morning. The Location is perfect being at the "end of the Road" with all the sea lions, and agate hunting you stay entertained at this beautiful part of the beach. I don't want to leave out the staff, They are so good to us! A big thanks to the Staff!

Room Tip: There are rooms over looking the bay that are not too expensive, and the bay is beautiful, if you wa...

My husband and I stayed a night at Looking Glass Inn for our anniversary. We go to Mo's all the time and when we drive by, I always think it would be nice to stay next to Mo's. Based on the reviews here, we decided to book a night. Our first impression was the staff is very friendly and nice. The lobby area is bright and clean. Our room is on the 3nd floor with a jacuzzi tub. Once we opened the door and turned on the light, we were impressed. The room is cozy, clean, also with a fireplace which I didn't expect. They also gave us 2 small bottles of champagne which is very nice of them. The bed is also very comfortable. The ocean view is very beautiful in the morning. We got some breakfast from the lobby then we took a short walk at the beach. It was a very relaxing stay. I am sure we will come back very soon.
