        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!

        Lovely Honeymoon!


        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.

        Wonderful Motel!


        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!

        ... jet ski action and events in the country. I decided I wanted to spend time observing the event, so Kevin headed on while I stayed to watch. After shopping in Lincoln, I met up with Kevin at Devil's Lake State Park, where he had found a lovely clearing at the hiker/biker section to setup camp. I shouldn't admit it, but I took a 20 minute shower that night in the unusually posh shower ...

        And, you may have guessed it, today being Tuesday, we spent the rest of the evening watching SYTYCD and blogging. What a great day, meal and evening. We win!

        ... prove we at least did something all these months not working.
        When checking in at the camp site I was slightly confused when the woman asked, "Snow Pets?" I weakly replied "no snow pets" then laughed realizing that I was so tired/spaced out from the long drive after a night of not great sleep and really she had just said "No pets?"

        We partially upgraded ourselves by booking a Camping Cabin. Much cheaper than a hotel and without the set ...

This is a rock formation which, at the right time of day, spouts ocean water into the air ... but we were there at low tide so no luck in seeing the spouting rock. We hope you enjoy ...
