I've had the opportunity to stay at the Ester Lee on several occasions. It is a wonderful combination of cottages and high rise. I've only stayed in the cottages because of the fantastic views of the beach and ocean. Very pet friendly, it was the main reason we stayed there, but the staff was super friendly and helpful and the... More

I stayed in cottage 114. It is situated on the bluff and has beautiful views of the ocean from the main room and the master bedroom as well. The unit was super clean and the staff always accommodating. They allow pets in most units, and even have bedding for them. My kitten enjoyed his stay too. Regardless of the unit... More

The room was very clean, beautiful ocean view and excellent customer service. The staff made me feel like a part of their family. The cleaning lady spent a few minutes with my puppy and made me feel I had the most precious puppy she had ever seen! I stayed in room 2 and will stay in this room again as... More

The retro cottages are clean & have all the amenities. Stayed over the weekend to celebrate a birthday, and the cottage was perfect for us (and our dog.) Very private & awesome views of the ocean. A great place to stay and explore the surrounding beaches/ attractions. The staff was excellent. Would definitely stay there again.

the hotel is situated on a high cliff overlooking about 15 miles of beach and the Siletz river estuary. The views are stunning and the hotel is within easy reach of many activities in lincoln city. There is even a movie theater across the street!

We spent our honeymoon at the Ester Lee 30 years ago so we came back to celebrate our anniversary. Nostalgia brought us back but we would definitely stay there anytime we go for a beach get-away. ps Bring your own pillows.

Fantastic place to stay. Room was great, ocean view, fireplace & kitchenette. Nice to be able to walk down to beach & enjoy the sunset, then had our coffee on the beach the next morning. Opened our window at night to hear the surf, so peaceful & relaxing.

We loved our stay at the Ester Lee. It is very peaceful and relaxing. The views from the room are gorgeous and the walks on the beach are wonderful. Found some agates and rocks that were collectable. It is close to the movie and places to eat. It is clean and well maintained but not modern. It is a good... More

We go to Lincoln City frequently for over 30 years and have stayed at a lot of places. This was a first for the Ester Lee. It is older but very well maintained. We took our dog and had a cottage. It was the most relaxed trip I think we ever took. The view was wonderful. It's a great place... More

The location may be nice but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. My room was old, dirty and had a 70`s feel to it. Bed was terrible and the bright porch light was left on all night which made it difficult to sleep. . Will not be back!
