Have stayed here several times. Magnificent view, cozy rooms, full kitchen, and fireplace. Friendly, accommodating staff. Even have jigsaw puzzles and books you can borrow. Away from center of town which I like but close enough for easy access. Love it!

We love to stay at the Ester Lee in the cottages. It's like being in your own vacation cabin. Love the nostalgia of the place, and it's true that what you can see from the window is magnificent. Everything we need is right there. Staff is the greatest & will respond quickly to any reasonable request. If there was anything... More

We love coming to Ester Lee because we can get a cottage where we can drive right up to the door, and bring our 2 dogs with us. The staff is always friendly, and the room nice and clean. The one we stay in has a full size kitchen and wood burning fireplace - with complimentary firewood. We try to... More

Staying at the Ester Lee is exactly what we are looking for when we go over to the coast ~ a beautiful ocean view, magnificent sunsets, easy beach access, comfortable, well maintained units, and a cozy wood burning fireplace in our room. The staff is accommodating and friendly. With a check-out time of noon, we always have time to go... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The views are wonderful and the place is so clean. Great value and the best place to stay in Lincoln City. If you are traveling as a couple, cottage 116 has a wonderful view.

What a view!!! I am impressed with the comfort and cleanliness of my room. The staff were always helpful and up beat. My dog was welcomed with no problem and the amenities for my pet were abundant. The room was with a gas fireplace and there was no problem with keeping warm during my Winter 5 day stay. I highly... More

We've stayed here now 3 times and will continue to do so, every Christmas. The rooms are cozy and delightful - especially when you have a fire - with fabulous views any time of the year. Everyone of the employees have excellent customer service skills. We had small issue this year but it was handled beautifully by the manager. We... More

The Ester Lee is only a couple of blocks from Theater West, and is the only place to stay when you come to Lincoln city for some live theater. The staff is excellent and the ocean views are fantastic. The facility is a little old - but it is very clean and well maintained. I'm certain that the mattress in... More

For my 63rd birthday - the hubby and I, along with Mango the Cat, stayed at Ester Lee for two nights in the pet-friendly Room 121. Full kitchen and amenities for cooking anything and everything (no grills available), gas fireplace in a ground floor room with two almost floor-to-ceiling picture windows with a gorgeous and completely unobstructed view of the...
