“Awsome Place To Stay and Relax...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2010

This is our favorite place to stay in Lincoln City! The location is the best right next to Moe’s and close to great shops to get really cool locally made gifts. The staff is very welcoming and friendly to all especially your pets! I cannot recommend this place enough you will NOT be disappointed!

My wife and I needed a place where we could be comfortable and relax. We found that at the looking glass hotel. The room had everything we wanted from a great view to the king size pillow top bed to the whirlpool tub. Rooms were very clean and moderately priced. In the morning we enjoyed the continental breakfast and in the evening we went to dinner at one of the local restaurants. We will be calling again for our future trips to the oregon coast. Thankyou.

This little Inn is tucked away at the end of town on a dead end road where the ocean and the bay meet which makes it quiet and the views unique. The access to the beach is perfect, NO stairs or a walk down the block, etc. You are on the beach within a minute of leaving your room!

The rooms are spotless! I've been coming there for a few years now and the same staff seems to always be there. They are people that care, people that are geniunely happy to see you and they always sincerely thank me and everyone else for staying there.

Everything you need is there or near by, great restaurants, shopping, grocery store. I walked to a fabulous place for breakfast called the Beach Dog Cafe (even tho the hotel has a continental,) and I also walked to the grocery store as well as another great cafe for lunch called the Pacific Grind. It's nice to park the car at a quiet peaceful Inn and be able to walk back and forth to some places. LOVE that!

This is a special place and if you haven't tried it yet you don't know what you're missing. The Inn is not oceanfront but the location is so unigue that you've got to check it out. This is what I would call a true rest stop, a very stressfree enviroment and a great place to relax on a vacation for awhile.

I could say more, but checkout their website and photos and you'll get even a better idea of what the place is like.

We had a lovely stay over Thanksgiving weekend. The room was comfortable, clean with good amenities. Our dog was met with open arms and treats. Would stay there again in a heatbeat!

We've stayed at the Looking Glass Inn maybe 6 or 7 times in the past decade ; We always get the kitchen, because we like to be lazy and have breakfast when we finally get up.

This past trip was the best, I think, because unlike most times when we travel, this time we both slept well right off the bat.

The staff has always treated us very well, without seeming subservient, so there's more of the "family" feeling.

I paid top dollar as I am here over the Thanksgiving weekend. There is a special rate which is significantly lower and can be found when searching for a deal for Sunday thru Thursday.

I have paid 1/2 the price for much nicer places, and much more for worse.

The room was clean. I brought my own cleaners just in case the jacuzzi tub looked like it needed it but it is a new air jet tub, so there is no water collected in the pipes. The room is big. The inn is older and a wood frame construction. I could hear the odd person walking about during the day but at night it was very quiet. I did not hear the dogs of any of the other guests.

The rooms are non smoking. So are the balconies. BUT smoking is permitted outside the doors of the rooms on the walkway, ashtrays are provided. The door to my room was not well sealed and when someone smoked out there last night I could smell it in my room. The seal on the door lets the wind blow thru and it is cold. The fireplace has a small flame, but it helps keep the room cozy. There is also a heater along the wall. If the seal was fixed the amount of energy wasted to increase the room temp would decrease significantly.

The jacuzzi tub was welcome after a 7 mile walk on the beach. The air jets do cool the water faster than the old water pumps but it is cleaner. No previous users old water in the pipes. There is a sign warning you the jets will self clear but the first time it catches you by surprise. Loud!

The little kitchen area is great. micro, coffee maker and bar fridge. Dishes and toaster.

The offered breakfast is Sarah Lee muffins and danishes, bagels, cereal and fresh fruit. Tea, and coffee all day, and cookies in the evening. It is not as nice as some but better than others.

The view from my room was lovely as I am on the 3rd floor. The facility is a short walk from the ocean, but I thought it was much closer and I would be able to hear the crashing surf. It is at the south end of LC and there are a limited number of restaurants near by. It is NOT an easy walk from some of the main locals in town. The highway does not have sidewalks all the way, and parts are a bit sketchy for a single female. The beach is a lovely walk but a couple of points are tight at high tide. I did not see taxis or public transit. Nor could I find a tourist info centre (from D river to the Inn). The library had maps of the city and entry points to the beach clearly marked.

The staff are friendly and efficient.

A quiet and clean room with the most comfortable bed and bed linens.
Friendly staff and the beach location makes this a lovely place to stay.

The "Mo" sign a bit annoying, it stays on all night.
