The Looking Glass in is located at the South End of Lincoln City in Taft-- Very Pet Friendly Hotel, clean and very reasonably priced! we had the one bedroom suite facing the Bay with small kitchenette and fireplace. I would probably request 2nd floor for better view, but being on the first floor makes taking the dog out easy ....

The room was nicely apportioned and...

We stayed just one night in a jacuzzi room on the top floor. Loved the room! Can't beat the price...less than $100 and we had an ocean view (distant), jacuzzi, fireplace and kitchenette. 2 minute walk to the beach. The only drawback was the rooms had paper thin walls and when the room next door turned on their jacuzzi, it...

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...

The Looking Glass Inn is a very dog friendly hotel. We travel with our two dogs and we felt very welcome with them at the hotel. They have a very nice dog area and provide you with a doggie basket when you check in. The bay is just across the street from the hotel and the ocean is just at...

We had a great time at the Looking Glass Inn. Everyone was so friendly. Very clean. We will stay again if we ever make it that way in the future. 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...

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...
