The Ester Lee is the only motel I know that has its own fan-club-in-the-making. I have never known a motel with such an avid fan base! There is a core group of people – and a pretty big group at that -- that returns to the Ester Lee (and ONLY the Ester Lee, in spite of a plethora of choices!) year after year.
And as a long-standing member of this group, who admits that she would be devastated if the Ester Lee weren't there, I can’t imagine why anyone visiting the Oregon Coast would stay anywhere else. And before you read any of these other reviews, ask yourself just WHY are you going to the coast?
I am baffled – and a little saddened – at the people who bemoan “weak wifi signals” and “older furniture.” Seriously?? When the Ester Lee offers a view to die for?! And at a price practically half of what some other places charge! Really people – if you haven’t stayed at the Ester Lee, you don’t know what you’re missing. The views – seen from HUGE windows that practically run the length of the rooms – are spectacular!
I've admitted I would be devastated if the Ester Lee were no longer there. How many places can you say that about? She is comfort. And blissful peace. Omigosh, such peace… You can pour that glass of wine (I bring cheap champagne and toast that magnificent ocean) and just sit and stare. All the basics are there to cook your own meals – but the Ester Lee is so well-located that great take-out is available, too.
I’ll admit to a certain bias for the cottages. Yes, I have dogs. But a lot of people who don’t have dogs feel as I do about the cottages, and book a cottage room for the nostalgia of it all. Because, you see, there is something TIMELESS about that place. That’s the beauty of it. You go there to get away – don’t you? To “DE-stress”?
And maybe this is the Ester Lee’s secret. Maybe you become a kid again, in a way. Life is no longer complicated. (The adult world of demands and obligations is such a noisy place). You get to play! And explore! And dream…
