“Great the second time around”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

This was our second stay at Looking Glass Inn. Very pleased again. Room was spacious, clean and extremely well appointed. Front desk staff were great. Very accomodating. Highly recommend this place. Winter rates are very good. The continental breakfast was so-so. That was the only area where management needs to make improvements.

Room Tip: No elevator, so I you have difficulty with stairs, request a ground level room. Room #102 is great g...

This is quite a nice hotel, and just across the street from a good walking beach. The room we were in was quite nice, good view of the beach and bay. Clean, decently equipped, good service. One very small drawback from just this room was bad wireless connection, but if you moved from the table to the window, it was OK. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a quiet stay. This is located at the south end of Lincoln City, away from most of the restaurant scene and some of the other good beaches. I would avoid the restaurant across the street; but we found other good places to eat a mile north. Our room was a kitchenette, bedroom, living room & bath. Very nice!

Room Tip: It appeared most rooms had a good view. We were in a 'corner' at the far end from the lobby...

My wife and I started staying here 6 or 7 years ago with our golden retriever...... we have always experienced clean rooms and a friendly staff........ cant beat the beach access either. If we run out of things to do in Lincoln City, Depot Bay and Newport are a short and scenic drive away.

The two-bedroom room we booked was comfortable with a great view out the window. There is a parking lot in front of the Inn for the Inn, Mo's and the public but the bay is right out there so close you can see the sea lions rolling around in the water. The beach and public dock are steps away from the Inn. I'm not really a dog person and I knew that Looking Glass caters to dog owners. I saw more dogs in one weekend than I've seen in six months but they were all happy, well cared-for and well mannered. The full kitchen was well stocked. We were going to have delivery pizza one night, but with the great kitchen I changed plans and made Crab Louis and fettuccini Alfredo in the room instead. Overall great room, great weekend, friendly staff, ok breakfast stuff and we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms and higher probably have a better view.

The whirlpool tub was simply awesome. I loved this room for so many reasons. The bed was the most comfortable. You can see the beach from this amazing balcony. Right by Mo's makes it easy to have a nice dinner. Within walking distance to enjoy a fire on the beach! I loved it and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Whirlpool rooms have had no pets!

Very comfortable and convenient property. Beds comfortable, rooms clean, nice shower. Staff very helpful and friendly. While we didn't travel with a dog, they are intentionally welcomed at this property. And,,,it is literally steps from the beach.

I called late to book a room and they had a cancellation. unfortunately the third floor room they had was already spoken for so they put us on the second floor. Very nice room but only had a "bay view". Room was extremely clean and the staff were more than helpful. Will definitely stay there again!!
