A Great Place To Stay
Stayed at the Ester Lee for the first time the end of Nov., 2003 and absolutely loved it!! Very friendly staff, clean, great view, great room (allowed smoking which is a big plus when both of us smoke and the weather outside was a tich wet), the free firewood and morning paper were very much enjoyed. We have stayed at other Lincoln City motels and never found one that we wanted to return to. We don't need to look anymore, the Ester Lee will be our destination in future trips to the coast.
Homw away from home
I have stayed many times at the Ester Lee Motel and feel so at home there when I need a little R&R. The view is wonderful from all of the units. The rooms are clean, staff very friendly and helpful, the prices are great, and I just love it there.
We had our Honeymoon at Ester Lee 8 years ago this Dec. We`ve been back every year. Prices are great! People are friendly and the rooms are just really homey. Not to mention the memories and the view is spectacular. I cannot recommend it enough. This year I plan to propose to renew my vows in that same room.
Quiet & Peaceful week
My friend and I had a wonderful time watching the ocean and waves and walking on the beach in the evening watching the sunset at night.
Peace and Solitude
Cottage had unobstructed view of Pacific Ocean. Peaceful view with only the sound of the surf and wind. Excellent environment for romantic time with loved one.
Cottage was great! Loved the view!
Big picture windows with great view of ocean. Cottage was very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The price was very good. Can't wait to go back next year!
We spent 5 nights honeymooning on the Oregon Coast, with the Ester Lee as our home base. We found the room to be clean and comfortable.
Requests left for housekeeping were fulfilled propmtly. We enjoyed the ocean view and the sounds of the surf very much. While it was fairly warm most of our visit we did enjoy a fire in the gas fireplace one evening. While not direct beach access it is just a short walk down the hill - warning to those who may not be so fit - there is also the walk UP.
Easy drive to Newport and Depoe Bay. Lots of fine resturants in the area, but dont count on staff to give recommendations. We asked locals or followed our noses so to speak... Try Wale cove in and Pier 101 for great seafood... for a nice drive and dinner with a beach view the Pelican Brewery in Pacific City is highly recomended.
Ester Lee was a great value and we plan to come back next summer!
Lovely little hideaway
We just got home from spending a night at the Ester Lee and want people to know how pleasant a place this is. It is far from fancy (think beach cottage), but it is comfortable and VERY clean with a pleasant, helpful, knowledgable staff and outstanding views. We will definitely be returning.
Quiet and Value for the money
If you are looking for a nice quiet place, this is it. We had a motel room with gas fireplace which was really nice, you could sit in front of it and look out over the ocean. We also had a microwave & refrigerator. It is really clean, staff friendly and value for the money. Would certainly go back. We stayed here May 11-15, 2003.
A friend and I stayed at this motel a few months ago. It offers a gorgeous view of the ocean, and the gas fireplace added just the right touch! I couldn't wait to go back with my husband for a weekend getaway. It's not the fanciest motel, but very cozy and romantic. I will highly recommend this spot to anyone. The staff are very friendly and the morning paper was a plus. Thanks!

... Bay where we saw our first gray whale! Next we stopped at the Devil's Punch Bowl, a collapsed natural sea cave, where we viewed the gaping hole from the rocks above, and then hiked down to explore the tide pools and the cavern below. From the beach, we gazed out at the waves and watched more whales breech the water and spew from their blow holes. After a quick breakfast, we headed to the Yaquina Point Lighthouse, where we avoided the day use fee by parking at ...

The next morning Chris whipped up a much needed greasy breakfast of sausage and toast (aka sausage sandwich complete with English mustard) and we were on our way again...

... park said they didn't expect us tonight, so they 'fit' us into a great site with a bit of an ocean view. And because they mixed up the reservation and had to fit us in, they comped the night for us. From our sight we can only see the ocean over the top of a few houses and cannot actually see the beach so this evening we walked down to the ocean and guess what ... we actually saw our first Oregon sunset. Although cold and a bit windy on the beach, ...

Apparently this is the start of the bus season here with Valentines da and their wine festival coming up. That's a couple of weeks away and the streets look pretty much the same today as the did last night.
