“Inexpensive great coast view”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We spent two mid-week nights here. The location is good, the view is excellent. They have a web site that lets you see both the room and the view from the room. Some slight noise from the room above, so a top floor room would be even better. Clean, comfortable, homey.

Room Tip: Use the web site to preview the room.

This is our second trip to remember our wedding anniversary and have nothing but Thank-yous for the attention and care. Our names and anniversary were posted on their reader board at our request - an offer made when we made our reservations. The staff is just wonderful; rooms are clean, view can't be beat. From on top of the cliff, 4 windows in our room give a ring-side seat to the varying views of the ocean. The motel is where we stayed, but have stayed in the cabins also. We pieced together two jigsaw puzzles while watching the waves this trip (puzzles available for borrowing from the office as well as books at no charge). We have already made our reservations for 2013. Thank you again everyone at Ester Lee.

We have always enjoyed our stay at the Ester Lee. Staff members are friendly and helpful. If you have had a previous stay, check is very quick since they have the paperwork printed out and ready to go. Some of the rooms are a bit worn but very clean and all have a great view. We will return.

Room Tip: We always stay in the motel section. The views are great. Large rooms with everything you need to p...

Want to watch the ocean - in all kinds of weather - from a cozy, safe place? Then visit the Ester Lee Motel in Lincoln City, OR. The room is spacious, fresh-scented and CLEAN! The ocean is right outside the window. At 80ish feet above the surf zone, watching the waves and wind and weather can be done safely. There are 3 choices for meals: a kitchenette in the room or dining out at several close by, relatively inexpensive restaurants. Each room does have a fridge and microwave. And, of course, some places do deliver.
A cable TV and DVD player is in the room - your choice of inside entertainment.
The staff is very friendly and knowledgable about the area.
For other amenities, and a virtual tour, see their website.

This is a Class Act Motel with big time love of animals. They bend over backwards to make it comfortable for dogs and people. We went to sign in to our cottage, and they already had the paperwork on the counter because they recognized our dog, a big german shepherd! They have friendly and consistently wonderful service. Amenities are okay, but ocean side views and kitchenettes make up for lack of electrical outlets in bathrooms or small televisions (who goes to the beach to watch TV?) I would advise reservations way in advance to make sure you get the superior cottages which accept dog(s). Love this place and have been going there for about 5 years now.

Room Tip: Cottage 226 is and end view with huge picture windows and allows dogs and smokers, fireplace in the...

If you're looking for a wonderful time in a clean room with anything taken care of no matter what the circumstances or needs, this place is for you!!!! Wishing you many happy hours here!!!
