The staff at Ester Lee are very friendly and helpful. This wonderful spot allows dogs and sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean - you can sit in your room and watch the most fantastic sunsets. It's clean and the studios with kitchenettes have everything you need.

We had a great visit! Like stepping back in time to a time of the 50s. Well appointed and such a lovely view! Great for families! The cottages are the winner! You will love it and fully equipped kitchen! Had a great time!

My wife and I have stayed at the Ester Lee several times in the past 10 years. We always try to make a trip to the coast near the end of February to celebrate my wife's birthday. The weather isn't always as good as it was this past weekend - but the people at the Motel are always friendly and... More

We have stayed at Ester Lee a number of times and can count on a good stay. It is a very good value for the money. My wife and I stayed there on a Sunday night for $70.00. We had our window open all night and listened to the waves crashing on the shore right below our room. Of course... More

We rented 2 cottages, #5 & 6 for a family gathering. The rooms were very clean although #6 had a lingering, musty odor that (even with a good airing out) did not dissipate. The beds are mildly uncomfortable. The views are amazing. #5 is wonderful with a gorgeous view from the living room and kitchen. All in all this motel... More

I love the Ester Lee. I have been coming here for over 25 years. Love the amazing ocean view, clean comfortable rooms and cottages, affordable rates. We stay here several times a year to enjoy the ocean.

Have stayed here several times. Magnificent view, cozy rooms, full kitchen, and fireplace. Friendly, accommodating staff. Even have jigsaw puzzles and books you can borrow. Away from center of town which I like but close enough for easy access. Love it!

We love to stay at the Ester Lee in the cottages. It's like being in your own vacation cabin. Love the nostalgia of the place, and it's true that what you can see from the window is magnificent. Everything we need is right there. Staff is the greatest & will respond quickly to any reasonable request. If there was anything... More

We love coming to Ester Lee because we can get a cottage where we can drive right up to the door, and bring our 2 dogs with us. The staff is always friendly, and the room nice and clean. The one we stay in has a full size kitchen and wood burning fireplace - with complimentary firewood. We try to... More
