Day 144 - Last Day in Seaside - heavy rain so we sent to the "The Butler" - fantastic movie!
Day 145 - Newport, OR - we are staying just over the bridge at a marina. Beautiful location. Today we went in search of two lighthouses in the area. One is the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse (the shortest lighthouse in service from 18471-1874) and the Yaquina Head Lighthouse - still ...
We left Astoria heading down the coast to Newport. I had my camera camcorder and tripod at the ready.I was going to take wonderful photos and videos of the magnificent Oregon coast. It is a magnificent coastline but try to do the above with trees blocking the view is impossible. We did stop occasionally to take a few shots. We stopped at a Safeway supermarket to buy some milk and something for lunch. they make ...
We were on the road at 10:15 looking for museums in Newport. They all appeared to be closed on Wednesdays. We could not find the entrance to the Pacific Maritime and Heritage Center, so decided to head north on highway 101. Our first stop is back to Yaquina Head Lighthouse so Gene can take some more pictures. The interpretive center is ...
We had a nice visit with Paul, and his fiancée Alyssa. They live in a resort community along the Portland coast and rent a cute house right on the water along the bay, where the bay meets the Pacific Ocean. We had many nice meals, discussed wedding plans, went fishing, took hikes, met their dog (my first grandchild), and walked up a sand dune mountain to go sand boarding and ...
... for dinner. It was very tasty and the beers just what the doctor ordered. The sun was setting just as we finished dinner, so we left the dinner and walked to the edge of the beach to watch the sun go down. There were still lots of people on the beach, and there were a few groups settling in for the evening, with small bonfires or bbqs set up. With the sun down, it was back to our room to continue watching the Olympic opening ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ester Lee Motel Lincoln City
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.
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!
