My sister and I had a two bedroom with a terrific view of the ocean. It was breath taking. The rooms were very clean. The fireplace was a plus and worked perfectly. The rooms were clean and well kept. They allow dogs which is a real plus. The staff is friendly and helpful. Forgot my dryer but they provided me... More

Did not allow a early check in. Wifi didn't work. TV was tiny and the aspect ratio was way off. Windows wouldn't open except one that couldn't be left open overnight so the room got pretty warm. Beach access is down a public street that is a very steep hill with no clear path through large rocks. Tiny bathroom and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ester Lee, in the jacuzzi cottage. I had been to the Ester Lee in the past, and have loved the experience every time. This was my husband's 1st time, and he loves it as much as I do. From the expansive ocean views to the quaint and comfortable cottages to the friendly staff,... More

Room (suite) has new mattress and wonderful linens. Kitchen is very adequately equipped with dishes, cooking pots and pans and was very clean. Appliances are quite old but in good working order. Carpet and furniture very clean and inviting but the view is the most dramatic experience. We always request Room 212 and the panoramic view is spectacular.

This is the 4th time I have stayed and it never get boring or disappointing. the staff is so friendly and if there is something that I need in the kitchen and it's not there they go and get it. Always clean and they keep the windows spotless. As for the views you can't get any better. Watching the waves,... More

We can start with very friendly, helpful people at the desk--always there with pleasant smiles, ready to make us feel at home. Built on a bluff, each room has a breath-taking view of the ocean. The cottages make you feel sort of like you have your own little place, and some of them are finished off with real knotty pine... More

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
