“Best couple days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

We definately had the best couple days in lincoln city in a long time. Ester Lee had a lot to do with that. Being able to stay at a nice, clean and quiet place did the trick.

We love this place! Everyone is always friendly. The rooms are clean. Our cottage is very comfortable and the views from it are great, The beach is very accessible and there are plenty of restaurents close by. My wife and I have come here for our anniversary and her birthday for the last 4 years. We just celebrated our 40th anniversary here and will be back for the 41st.

This was our 5th year in a row with a 4 night stay and we once again enjoyed it whole heartedly. Great prices, great view and once again the staff was very friendly and in some cases bent over backwards to keep our stay enjoyable. We look forward to staying there every year for our anniversary. The rooms are very clean and the maid staff always does an exceptional job. I would recommend a stay at the Ester Lee for anybody that loves to sit next to a warm fire and watch the ocean roll in.

Room Tip: If you have wild children that love to run after being cooped up in the car all day I would recommen...

We spent one night as a get away with the family. The price was amazing and we had a great time. The staff was friendly and the views were amazing!! The only complaint We have was the noise of highway 101. That was a bit much, but great place to stay and we will return.

Room Tip: The lower rooms are quieter, but if you are disabled, they aren't even an option.

Always very clean and neat. Love the old fashioned decor....and updated new items too! They have done a lot of remodeling in recent years...only making a lovely place better. Friendly staff, and you can't beat the views. I always love to stay in the lower cottages where the view is even better than above, and noise from the road is minimal. Our dog is always welcome and feels at home here! The cottages are very roomy and can house plenty of people. Thanks Ester Lee for another great weekend.

Room Tip: The Grandview area is top notch for quiet and ocean views

My husband and I have stayed here twice and enjoyed it both times. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel is right above the beach with wide open views of the ocean and access to the beach. It is worth the return visit!
