Spent 30th wedding anniversary at the Inn. When I checked in the room there was a complimentary bottle of iced champagne in the room. My stay was outstanding. Great room and outstanding view and front office staff.

Oct 15, 2014. Stayed one night with my son and we both wished we could have stayed a week! We were spoiled upon arrival by being upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with an ocean view. The rooms were perfect--large, clean, bright, airy and comfortable. The service was friendly and warm with good suggestions on places to go. This is...

We stayed only 1 night last month, but this is a place you may want to linger awhile. It overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the only thing between the ocean and our room was a (busy) street. Our room actually was a kitchenette and had a separate bedroom. Tourists are everywhere and this is a dog lovers' paradise. We had...

My husband and I spend two nights at the Looking Glass Inn. I chose it because it was rated #1 Romantic hotel on TripAdvisor in Lincoln City. After booking the room, I received a call that they were offering to bump us up to the third floor so we could have an ocean-view. They also asked if we wanted sparkling...

We always love to go to the beach and The Looking Glass Inn is our favorite place. Sometimes we wait too long to make a reservation and can't get in and have to stay elsewhere. Not happy. Always treated with upmost respect and greeted with good attitudes and smiles. Love this place

We had a deluxe room with a view of the bay. Our room was huge, kitchen, living room, dining room, big bedroom, decent bathroom. Bed was really nice and the room was spotless, the price was also great. Not hard to see why it is number 1. We recently stayed in a hotel in Seattle that was $300 a night...

If it's a special occasion or just need a night away, the Looking Glass Inn is my first choice! The friendly, helpful staff always tries to accomodate my requests!

The Looking Glass in is located at the South End of Lincoln City in Taft-- Very Pet Friendly Hotel, clean and very reasonably priced! we had the one bedroom suite facing the Bay with small kitchenette and fireplace. I would probably request 2nd floor for better view, but being on the first floor makes taking the dog out easy ....

We made reservations on line and in the "comments" box, I asked for a room facing the bay since it was our anniversary etc. Upon our arrival, the staff began with a word of congratulations on our big day and when we entered the room, there was a very nice gift from the hotel. The room was nicely apportioned and...

We stayed just one night in a jacuzzi room on the top floor. Loved the room! Can't beat the price...less than $100 and we had an ocean view (distant), jacuzzi, fireplace and kitchenette. 2 minute walk to the beach. The only drawback was the rooms had paper thin walls and when the room next door turned on their jacuzzi, it...
