... This is a peregrine falcon. I once saw something on Nature that showed a Snowy Owl who lost a chick. She first mourned. Then she tore it apart to give to the other two starving chicks. In other words survival is THE most important on their minds. That falcon was either hungry (though his crop sure looks full) or it might have been a wayward bird in his territory that he had just killed. You are very lucky to have witnessed this!"
... we yet again struggled to find a campsite on a weekend night without a reservation. Finally, with a recommendation from a helpful park ranger, we headed up river away from 101 to find another privately owned campground. We passed a charred seafood restaurant swarming with fire trucks and wrapped in caution tape. The fire couldn't have happened more than a couple of hours earlier. We continued up the road and finally found the Chinook Bend campground, where ...
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!!!
... its majestic fog! It was crazy to see the fog flying by us and rolling down the mountain we just hiked up.
Now we hike back down to our car and find a place to sleep and eat.
We stayed in Lincoln City at a hotel on the ocean. This place is "cheap" but has a great view from our hotel room of the ocean and beach. The beach here is not all sand but rock and sea crustaceans. We went ...
... mentioned which awards it won over the years. It is quite impressive. As I could not make up my mind, I choose the sampler; 4 small beers of my choice. After eating my meal and sampling the beers, I was very impressed with the Chocolate beer. Coming out in the darkness of a late evening, we biked back to camp with full tummies, a little tipsy and with the precious help of our headlamps to light up our way ...

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.
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!
