“Favorite Spot on the Oregon Coast”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Very kind and friendly staff. We have a dog and he loves to sit by the fire after our beach walks. We have stayed in many of the pet-friendly cottages,and enjoyed every one.
Our favorite is the Crows Nest which sits above all on it's own. You need to climb a full flight of stairs to reach it.Once there you feel secluded. All have kitchens and fireplace either gas or wood,which is supplied.
If you want lodging that is comfy,roomy and a good location to area attractions this is the Motel for you.

Room Tip: Crows nest # 340 great for a couple and pet. there is a roll out sofa if you need another bed. Go o...

This was a spur of the moment trip for two girlfriends and it was great. No-nonsense check-in, fabulous view, comfortable furnishings, great price, friendly staff, nice walk to the beach and more.

Room Tip: We stayed in 201 which is a corner room with a great view!! There is no deck so this is better for...

The Ester Lee has everything to recommend it as far as I'm concerned. It has "character"; it has incredibly reasonable rates; it has incredible ocean views; it has whales swimming by that you can watch while eating at your kitchen table (during the migration times); it is incredibly dog friendly; the staff is the best you will ever encounter.

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...
