My wife and I stayed here for a week, in a one-bedroom suite. I could sum this up by saying that next time we are in the Lincoln City area we'll be staying at the Ester Lee again.
I can think of only one negative regarding our accommodations, so I'll get it out of the way. I don't know where the water heater is, relative to our suite, but it took about three minutes of running the water until it got hot. Once hot, it was reliable. But three minutes can be a long time when you need it hot. We weren't really bothered by this, we learned to turn it on and do something else for a few minutes.
That issue may not be relative to other units, I just can't say.
That out of the way, I can say the accommodations, location, staff and rates were all very much to our liking. Furnishings are a little dated, but clean and comfortable. The mattress was firm and we slept like babies every night.
The desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful when you need them - wonderful people! Housekeeping was always spot-on, and invisible.
Our suite over-looked the ocean and beach and we had a gas fireplace and a well-stocked kitchen. It's on a cliff, so the beach is a short walk, but very handy.
This is the kind of place you wish you knew about ahead of time when you roll into a strange town. We'll be back!
