We very much enjoyed our overnight stay. A fireplace in the room and a window to see the ocean. Also very quiet even on the bottom floor. The price was right and the desk clerks were just so nice. Highly recommended!

We arrived late and where greated by a wonderful desk clerk. She was very nice and efficiant. She is defintley an assett to your buisness. We then went to our room. I was pleasantly suprised. This hotel was very clean. The view from our room was spectacular. I was able to open our curtain and look at the ocean views.... More

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Ester Lee Motel in Lincoln City Oregon. If you are looking for a nostalgic beach cabin that is pet friendly with fabulous views this is the place to stay. Beach cabins like the one's at the Ester Lee are quickly becoming a thing of the past as they are... More

I'd love to give the Ester Lee a better rating. The view is gorgeous. The staff was very friendly. The cottage was spacious enough. However the place is a bit rundown which is surprising since they are in a high traffic area which suggests a better-than-average income stream. Granted it was an older property, but I have seen older properties... More

This is an amazing little gem on the Oregon Coast. We love staying here and will continue to return any time we can. Being pet friendly allows spontaneity. The cottages are quaint, clean and comfortable. Fire places add to the coziness of being by the sea.

We have stayed in cottage #2 many times. We enjoy this pet friendly room because it sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean with no obstructions. From the street level, you must walk down several steps, which makes it somewhat difficult when you are carrying luggage. I like the entrance to the room. It is an enclosed porch where... More

My husband, dog, and I stay here for the Lincoln City Half Marathon (the start/finish is only ten minutes away) and we always look forward to returning. Somehow we always wind up in room 116, which is very spacious. You can't beat the view, and the doggie linens are a nice touch. It's an easy walk to the Inn at... More

The views of the ocean were beautiful from our cabin. It was wonderful listening to to ocean waves. As many have reported, the property is dated with very worn furniture. The kitchen and living room are very nice sized in the cabins. The room seem clean with an odd smelling deodorizer or cleaning solvent. The rooms are all dog friendly... More
