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...

This hotel is not right on the water but from some rooms you have a view of the ocean from across the street. We have stayed at several hotels in Seaside and Cannon Beach, right on the water, but you pay more than double the price of this hotel. The service is great and the housekeeping is excellent. They really...

Have to say I was very suspect that this hotel was rated number 1 in the city and number 4 on the coast before we arrived. The owners have taken an older facility and turned it into a great stay! We did enjoy it, had a balcony room over looking the ocean, great location, nice clean rooms. The staff is...

We received a gift card for Christmas for this little gem and used it this weekend. I will not stay anywhere else. They allow pets for 15.00 per night additionally and they cater to them. You receive a basket for your dog with food bowls, treats, towels to wipe their feet of sand, dog bed and a sheet to cover...

We booked on line on our way down the coast based on trip advisor reviews. Happy to report previous reviewers were correct. Took a view room which gave us a great view of the bay (2nd floor would be even better). Loads of room, clean and well laid out. Added bonus was the on site coin laundry and breakfast. Enjoyed...

I can't say enough good things about this place! From the polite staff to the comfy beds and beautiful ocean views, our stay here was better than we could have anticipated if we had planned it.
