... dunes. This one allows beach driving due to the packed up sand, but I didn't bring a big enough shovel to try that. Along the way between the capes are beautiful spruce forests and huge oceanside bluffs. The road ends at Pacific City and returns to US-101. Here we meandered south through Neskowin and Lincoln City. At a Lincoln City's Taft District along Siletz Bay, we stopped for a big dinner at Mo's, overlooking the low tide estuary surrounding the mouth ...
Ok! So we are in Lincoln City warming up for the Bumper Sticker tour. I've figured out what to do each day at Yellowstone...now to figure out the daily itinerary at Glacier. We will be watching music tonight and just relaxing. It is absolutely gorgeous here at the beach today. However, I am ready for a good nap...coastal coma has officially taken hold of my inner body!!!
We moved the short distance here this morning, got a nice pull-thru site with full hookups, and Zach and I took off to walk on the beach after lunch.
Despite it being a cool and windy day, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting and watching the waves, and walking through the surf, taking pictures, watching the kites being flown by others on the beach and talking. So glad we moved here for the day!
Last time I wrote we were in Oklahoma City and moving on West. Out of Oklahoma into the panhandle of Texas, drove through the stunning Grand Canyon-like Palo Duro Canyon, endured several hundred miles of barren, sandy scrub and stayed in Roswell, New Mexico, one of the favorite landing places for Aliens. We spent most of our time for several days on Interstate 40 which follows the exact route of the famous Route 66 - the first highway to connect Chicago ...
We decided to travel south from Lincoln City down the coast of Oregon. Along the way, we stopped to search for whales and also saw some harbor seals sunning and playing. We climbed the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon coast, saw the shortest lighthouse on the coast, and also visited the only ...

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!
