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!

We haven't been to Ester Lee in probably, 20 years, but were so pleased to find that the rooms and grounds are still extremely well maintained, the staff is friendly, and the integrity of the original "cabins" has been retained. So many of the motels of this era have been razed or "renovated". It's a major bargain, with fabulous ocean... More

We needed to get away for a relaxing vacation. What better way than to stay ocean front where you can walk down miles of beach. You can even walk to restaurants. The staff is friendly and willing to help. Appliances are older but everything works. Would stay here again.

Our family of 17 stayed 3 nights at the Ester Lee. The staff was very attentive, the rooms had a great view, and the price was quite reasonable. The access to the beach was very easy.I would definitely stay there again.

Cottage 4 is awesome. Try not to carry a lot since there are many stairs from your car to the cottage but well worth it. Very quiet, kitchen easy to use and a pretty comfy bed. Best view from a jacuzzi ever.

Cottage was very comfortable. The beds were a little high though since I am short, and the shower was a little small. It had just the right cooking utensils and dishes. Comfortable chairs and couch. I would have liked a plugin in the bedroom, there was none, I had to go to the bathroom to plug in hair dryer. All... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ester Lee on our journey up the Oregon coast. This was one of my favorite places. So cozy, clean and comfortable. Our queen bedroom had a gas fireplace with chairs beside the window with a beautiful ocean view. How relaxing to hear the crashing of the waves throughout the night. I wish we... More

My son and I had separate rooms her during our exploration of the coast. Rooms were economical and so cozy on a stormy Pacific day. They both had views of the raging surf, and gas fireplaces. Sat in a big easy chair watching the sea. Felt like a retreat. Rooms clean, comfortable and quiet. Wish they'd have had a breakfast.... More

This was the first time for us to travel to the Oregon Coast and in particular to be in Lincoln City. What a place to relax in, we had a spectacular view everyday we were there and the beach was only as short distance from our quaint cottage. We loved the little cottage,very clean, and with a fire place in... More

We celebrated our mom's 80th birthday by having a family weekend at the Ester Lee. Love this place, I know I've reviewed them before, because this is a place I've returned to over and over and over again. This time it was four generations of family in two cabins, ranging in age from 1 to 80. 8-) Our cabin was... More
