Located at the south end of Lincoln City in the small Taft historic area, the Looking Glass Inn provides a great spot for a visit to the coast. Nothing extravagant but very clean and friendly and very reasonably priced. Nice continental breakfast. Great access for walking the beach. Barbecue available in small but attractive lawn area. My brief impression is... More

The hose out back was great for washing our dog off after swimming in the ocean. Lots of choices at breakfast, bagels, muffins, cereal, oatmeal, juices, yogurt, almonds. We stayed... More

This is a great location with water view and across the street from Mo's that has great clam chowder ect.. Room was very comfortable with nice fireplace. If you have a dog they had great Dog beds and a basket that looked like it had all you would need for your pet. I would return.

This was our second stay at the Looking Glass Inn, and it continues to be our favorite place to stay in Lincoln City. A sandy beach is just a few steps away. Our one bedroom delux room turned out to be a suite, with a full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. Wonderful! Light breakfast items are available in the... More
