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...

Simple, modest motel located on the bluff. Great views and quality service. We enjoyed our stay here, easy check-in and check-out. We easily reserved a room online and there were no issues with the room.

We enjoyed Thanksgiving at the Ester Lee, and I do mean enjoyed! Staying in Cottage 2 gave us a magnificent view of the Pacific during one of the Fall storms as well as easy access to the beach. The unit was spotless; the staff outstanding; and the entire experience wonderful. And yes, we will be back!

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.
