Yes we had many other choices of places to stay,but my family has always stayed at the ESTER LEE and have always enjoyed our stays there.For our lodging budget I know we made the right choice,the staff was very helpful,courteous and really friendly overall.They made you feel welcome and like you mattered to them,not just as a customer but especially as a guest.We will defineately spend several more week-ends with the folks at the ESTER LEE.A real 5 STAR motel.

Room Tip: No such thing as a bad view from any room

Upon reading reviews on TA we stopped here on our way north. We were not disapointed. Our room was a fair size, with a gas fireplace, ocean view and comfortable. Yes it was a bit dated but the price was only $63 for a double in April. We hiked down the steep road to walk on the beach which was wonderful. We could watch the sunset from the window in our room.

We just returned from a week of relaxation at the Ester Lee! Once again our stay was perfect! We stayed in a cottage and nothing beats the views. The staff was always friendly and helpful as usuall. We are planning our trip for next year already!

Cozy, clean and the best view ever. The Ester Lee is like having your own little beach house on the coast. . . .Or maybe you're at your Great Aunt's beach house. 8-) It's not the Ritz, but it's charming. Staff is great. Love that the Ester Lee has gone all none smoking. We cooked supper, drank wine and watched the waves from our living room. In the morning, whales and seals were up close. Ahhhhh! What you can see from The Ester Lee.

Great rates! Great views! Pets are very welcome! The Ester Lee has a large area to "walk" your dog. Very friendly, helpful staff. Will be staying there again! Took my 2 Border Collies, we had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: The cottages have a more "rustic" feel and decor. But, are very nice. Most have full kitch...

We have stayed at the Ester Lee for years and send all our friends and family there, too!
The people are genuinely super nice—on the phone and in person.

But it's the view and cozy cottages that make it all worthwhile; anytime of the year!!
PLUS, they have a sign out front that has YOUR NAME on it when you arrive!!
How cool is that?

The motel is a little dated but very clean. Sat in the comfy chairs over looking the beach and the waves crashing onto rocks ,what a view! Had a good sleep with no road noise just the waves.Very friendly staff. We had absolutely no issues what so ever. One more bonus is that you can walk right down onto the beach. A good place and a great price I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We had a ton luggage so request one of the rooms that you can park in front of with no stairs.
