We have been coming for over 10 years for our girl's weekend and have always been delighted with the service and the views. It is close to all the things we like to do. We are talking about making it a longer stay because we don't have time to do all the things we would like to do. Keep up... More

We have stayed at the Ester Lee a few times - always because we are traveling with our dogs. If the dogs are not with us, we do not stay there. The rooms are large with nice amenities. The view out the windows is spectacular! It is always clean, even though many dogs have visited before us. They have sheets,... More

Very old school hotel and "cottages." Clean and serviceable, but definitely not the Four Seasons. For the price we would stay there again. Great views and a comfortable room that won't break the bank. We stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage that was straight out of an I love Lucy vacation episode, old school, not updated charm, Nothing fancy, but... More

Ester Lee is the perfect place for a few days at the beach. The view is wonderful, the beds are comfortable, and the rooms are very clean. It is an older place, but is well kept. This is our first choice when staying at the beach. We keep coming back because it works so well for us.

I have been coming to the Ester Lee for over 20 years. The place has been well maintained and is very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Stayed in a cottage this time and it was very cute. Had a full kitchen, notty pine walls, gas fireplace and a view to die for. Loved getting up in the morning to the... More

My best friend and I stayed only one night as the cost prohibited more. However, it was worth it. First, I had my dog and they really cater to pets (if you rent a cottage, as we did). From providing two sheets, a towel, and a blanket for my dog, to the adorable lawn area with the little fire hydrants... More

I picked the Ester Lee a few years ago because of the location; up above the ocean with a great view many miles out (feels safe from a tsunami at night). My grandfather and grandmother used to come to this spot many years ago; I understand the storage areas/garages across the lot used to be stables. It's a great spot... More

This motel was great !! The cabins (our group had 3 in a row) were very clean, very spacious and so comfortable. The staff (ALL) were very nice and so gracious. We felt like we were being invited into their home. The cabins were very retro, very cool. These were the cabins we remember when we went to the beach... More

I've stayed in several rooms and found them all to be exactly what I wanted. The retro look of the lobby is nice for cute pictures with out of town guests. Great parking, amazing views and wonderful beds and bedding. Five star look with a two star price. Always my first choice at the coast.
