... 20 runs east through the Coast Range all the way to Boston at 3,365 miles and makes this the longest road in America!!
Again the scenery along this coastline is breathtaking and we are so pleased that we have been able to experience it first hand.
Enjoy our trip along the coast so far - more to follow, of course. Off to Florence, OR next.
... to the harbour, for you people who have a dislike for fish you wouldn’t have liked the fishy smell. we stayed down there until dinner time, of course we had to have fish for dinner. We both chose the Tuna Mignon it was delicious the photo doesn't do it justice. Bummer of the day the selector dial on my camera broke off. As usual I can't get a word in as Sylvia has said it all!!(Reg) He would say that wouldn't ...
... of course I have the fish tacos while everyone else tries the chowder. I tasted the chowder and it was very good. The tacos were also good.
Now we head north again on highway 101. First stop is boiler bay where we see whales spouting. Pretty impressive. Then a stop at the Ben Jones Bridge and back to Days Inn at Newport, Oregon
... tent time. (It really does not take that long to set up the tent but we always seem to do our best to move in ultra slow motion while doing it) Cabin is warmer and you can lock it with a key...how civilized!
We made a spicy Vindaloo curry for dinner that I think my mouth is still burning from. We chatted to a couple from Medford, OR. They had stayed in the cabin's before and recommended we use the spare mattresses in the cabin and double them up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Looking Glass Inn Lincoln City
I had stayed at this hotel before under several different managers - it was one of my favorites. For a while pets weren't allowed - but then the current management took over and opened it back up to Pets. I was thrilled and called way in advance to book my favorite room. The day of my arrival I called and confirmed and arranged for a late arrival as the desk closes and the manager leaves around 9 pm but they will leave a key for you to pick up when you get there. When I got there, my key was for a different room - seems that the room I had reserved was under construction and had been torn apart for weeks! (No one ever bothered to tell me this) - and I think the management justified not telling me because they thought that if they gave me the large apartment room which used to house previous live-in managers I wouldn't mind - and maybe that would have been OK - but it seems that before my arrival the management arranged for roofers to work on that part and so I was left with a Jacuzzi room in the taller building - and that might have worked despite the fact that it involved climbing 3 flights of stairs with an ice chest no less - but the room I was given was a wreck! The Jacuzzi was broken, half the lights didn't work - the gas fireplace didn't work - and the bed sagged about 8 inches in the middle more like an apron than a mattress. I have a bad neck and it was impossible to sleep. In fact, laying on that bed increased my pain. I tried to use the emergency phone to call the management but the person on the other end could only try pages and had no luck reaching them despite numerous tries - and I had to stand out by the phone waiting for a call back on and off for about two hours. I had to be in seminar up the road at 8 am in the morning and had a full day of activities planned. I was stuck sleepless and uncomfortable the entire night! (Not to mention my anger at the out and out dishonesty of being lead to believe that I would get the room I had reserved and had been promised when it was obvious that the construction had made that impossible weeks before my arrival.) The next day I was moved to the large apartment and not charged for my 1st night - but that did not make up for the lack of sleep and the pain I endured for the entire day. I called the owners and reported this horrible experience and to my utter shock, they felt that giving me a free night of horror was sufficient. I loved this hotel and the location but I cannot forgive being out and out lied to and then having my misery so callously dismissed. (The manager responded to my complaints that day after this happened with the attitude that she was doing me a favor by upgrading me - she had to have known how bad the room she left for me was!) These people were obviously more concerned with getting rentals than the well being of their guests during their remodel. I will never understand why when I called a few hours before my arrival and confirmed I was still not told of the switch! I'm sorry - but if you stay here, and there is anything wrong with your room or repairs or remodeling - don't expect the management to care about you, especially if you have a problem after the manager leaves at night.
This is a great spot. The location is wonderful, the rooms are large and well appointed the staff is super and a large breakfast is included. We just got home from 3 days at the beach and the Looking Glass was just perfect. The Looking Glass is pet friendly. We weren't travelling with a pet and wondered if the pet 'atmosphere' would be intrusive, but it absolutely was not. All in all a great stay.
Very family friendly!
The Looking Glass Inn located in Lincoln City's Taft Historical District is wonderful! We stayed in there in June 2005 and couldn't believe how great it was. Very good value for the price and family friendly. All units are recently updated, and the staff is very friendly. It is located on Siletz Bay, across the street from Mo's.
Best place we ever stayed.
Looking Glass Inn, in Lincoln City, Oregon. Right on the beach. Within walking distance of several great places to eat. Our room had a hot tub, fire place and all for 69.00 per night.
This hotel's location, price, Staff, beach view from the rooms, service, & room amenities are AWESOME--I cannot stress awesome to you more. This hotel is in an area called the "Taft" district. It's on a quaint and cozy loooking somewhat strip, that over looks the beach. Awesome! (If you want to go to Chinnook Winds Casino, it's only about a 5 mile drive away)...
It has it all
It was great to stumble upon such a wonderful beach hotel. We had previous reservations at a hotel with no view, so we thought what the heck, we'll check this place out. Al was fantastic getting us in the very next night at a great rate. We stayed in a room you could live in. A full size stove, mid size fridge, mini kitchen, a seperate bedroom with queen bed and a living area with a fire place, queen pull out and table.....one bathroom. Oh, and a view, a real good view of the bay and ocean. And you can't beat being across the street from Mo's.........What a find. We'll be back, perhaps in a few weeks. Thank you to the staff at The Looking Glass. Angela
The Best Service
My husband and I stayed here a couple months ago and we were very impressed with their service. They gave us discounts and were super friendly. I would defenitly recommend them, in fact we're going to stay with them again soon.
Dogs love it too!!
It's great to be able to bring your dog to the beach and find a nice place like The Looking Glass Inn to stay where they are welcome.They even have goodie baskets just for the doggie. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is very hospitable. I will absolutly stay again,my dog loved it!
We can see clearly now!
We visited Mo's this past 4th of July and couldn't help but see a run down motel across the street...we returned this past Valentine weekend to find that same motel with a name change, the exterior transformed into a welcome site to the Taft District. The inside had been updated to compliment the exterior. The room had every comfort of home; a fireplace, VCR/TV, refrigerator, coffee pot and even a blow dryer! We enjoyed our weekend away and would recommend the Looking Glass to others who can see clearly now the change!
