“Quiet, comfortable and clean”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

We really enjoyed staying at this small Inn. Rooms were large and comfortable. We slept soundly with no noise to interrupt sleeping. Continental breakfast was spartan but quite adequate. Great view of bay from room with many sea lions to watch. Good access to long beach.Definitel would recommend to all and was very dog friendly for those with 4 leg travelers.

Room Tip: We iced the deluxe 1 bedroom queen suite with small kitchenette and gas fireplace. Great view.

The boyfriend, dogs and I LOVE staying at the Looking Glass! The staff is so incredibly kind and helpful (and they TRUELY love our furry friends - they supply dog beds if you are without!) the a.m. coffee is actually pretty great, there's a grocery around the corner, we sleep like babies in the comfy beds, the view is insane, and the access to the beach is the best in town! One downfall, but not a fault of the hotel, is there are only a handful of eating establishments close by (surprisingly, the bar Snug Harbor on US101 is your best bet, Tiki's for lunch). We will be back again & again & again...yes, it's that great!

This visit I had a lovely 2 bed room with glass storm door that had a marvelous view of Siletz Bay. Although it was off season it was very warm. I spend most of my time with my dog on the beach! Dinner from Mo's across the street made things very easy. I wish I could return much more often. Love this place. So does Cinnamon the blogging Coonhound!

Room Tip: Ask for a Bay view.

My husband and I have come to Looking Glass Inn a few times now. The service is great! Rooms are very accommodating! Right on Taft beach and the bay. Views are amazing. You can hear the ocean from your room. I cant wait to go back!

This place was a super nice pet friendly inn. The dog got a welcome basket! And there was a designated dog area with clean up supplies provided. The location is perfect. It is located in historic Lincoln City across from Mo's, so a nice place to go for a walk. The gas fireplace was nice to have. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. They have DVD rentals available. The staff are very friendly. There is a picnic/bbq area available. No pool, but the bay is across the street. We had the added thrill of seeing a whole herd of seals resting across the bay in the morning!

Room Tip: Upstairs for a view.

I've stayed at The Looking Glass Inn several times. The first time was 10 years ago. Since then they have remodeled and it is quite modern and clean and they still welcome your 4 legged family members. Canines receive a nice welcome basket. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable. It's location in Taft provides for great views of the bay leading out to the ocean and several great dining options within walking distance. Take a nice walk along the bay and beach then head back to the room to relax by the fire. They offer a complimentary breakfast in the lobby with pastries, fruits, juices and cereals. The staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend The Looking Glass Inn weather you are traveling with a pet or not.
