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

We stayed in the motel section. The room was spotless, had a nicely stocked kitchen (pots, pans, utensils, wine glasses, stove, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, etc) and a gas fireplace. The view was amazing and the staff were so kind and helpful! It felt very homey and I loved the close beach access. Is it super modern? No. But it... More

We normally do not give reviews, but since I did receive and email from the Ester Lee Motel, to rate them on TripAdvisor, I thought it was appropriate. The motel staff was very friendly and assisted whenever we asked. The view from the second floor motel room was great. With the widow open at night, the sound of the ocean... More

We live about 45 minutes from this hotel, and it's our "vacation home" on the coast. Several times a year we stay there when we want the coastal experience. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, and the view of the ocean is fantastic. It is about a 300 yard walk down... More

this was a great spot for us on our dog Jax. They are super dog friendly, there is a sheet and towels and a blanket for the dog, full on kitchen and of course the view. It was a great stay and wonderful walk on the beach. The fron desk people super friendly, would stay again.

Any time we head to Lincoln City, this is where we stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the views from the rooms just can't be beat! Beds are comfortable, and I'm picky because of suffering from fibromyalgia. They also have some pet-friendly room. Definitely one of my favorite hotels.

We stayed at one of the apartments in the motel. The view was spectacular! We loved the spot and enjoyed our stay so much. Sure the appliances are circa 1985 but they work just fine and the staff is super friendly. Free coffee in the office plus games and dvds available for rent. We stayed 3 nights in early August...

We stayed in one of the cottages, and parked right by the door. The place was nicely furnished, with large windows overlooking the ocean. The great view made up for a couple of shortcomings. The window in the bedroom had no curtains, only a set of well-worn mini blinds that weren't sufficient to keep light out. We saw no air... More

We really enjoyed our time at Ester Lee. The view was fantastic and the room was clean, neat and tidy with everything we could need. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the hotel was really close to the beach.

A few years ago while traveling the Oregon Coast, the Ester Lee was our first stop as a newly engaged couple. We enjoyed our stay and the quaintness of the Ester Lee so much that we actually got married here. Each year now we come stay for our anniversary weekend and they always put a congratulations on the reader board.... More
