This motel was quite satisfactory. Not fancy, but fairly clean (maybe the carpets could use a little shampooing). The breakfast was great ... much better than many continental breakfasts offered at motels. The office help were very friendly and helpful. Just down the street is the beach with a great view and across the street a very nice seafood restaurant....

This place is so great I almost don't want to share it. Visiting from Indiana and spent only (unfortunately) 1 night there. From the moment we walked in it was like home- only better. Incredible staff, very pet friendly, close to the bay. Clean, updated, and good parking. Room was very large and bright. Huge bathroom. Great view. Watched the...

My daughter and I stayed here one night on our tour of the Oregon coast. We had a nice stay and I would recommend the inn. The room was casual, clean and comfortable. We had an upstairs room and really enjoyed the view. We also lived the beach which was scattered with the most interesting driftwood or tree stumps.

Nice little place, nothing fancy, which is ok. Just the basics. Across from the bay and Mo's. Low key, very dog friendly. Nice little breakfast. Clean. Sofa not comfy. Bed-very comfy. Good price. Wi-fi didn't work on our ground floor room. (seems to be a recurring theme). Full kitchen.

My husband and I ended up at the Looking Glass Inn as we traveled and explored the Oregon Coast. We had been moving a lot and camping and it the Looking Glass was our oasis in the coastal desert! We were offered a view king whirlpool suite and although it was on on the top floor (stairs only), once we...

When searching for a hotel to stay at I noticed that The Looking Glass Inn was rated number one on Trip Advisor. I chose it because it was right next to Mo's and across the street from the beach. We stayed for one night in a whirlpool suite that also had a gas fireplace for a great price. The room...

Our vacations plans fell apart and we decided to head to the beach. Had always thought The Looking Glass Inn looked interesting (when we were headed to Mo's for dinner on past trips!) We were not disappointed...from the cheerful welcome at the front desk, to the fresh cookies, super clean room and lovely soft comfy bed with high end bedding....

I recently stayed at the Looking Glass Inn just prior to the July 4th Holiday. The weather was perfect, and the location was as well! The bay is right out the front door, which is perfect for those swimmers that don't want to take on Ocean waves. And at low tide, a beach walk for sea shells is just a...
