We stayed at the Esther Lee motel. The view exceeded my expectations. The kitchen was stocked with dishes. Very clean. Full size fridge. The bed was comfortable!! We visited several glass studios. I highly recommend.

We stayed in room 229, a two bedroom cottage which has windows across the entire back of the unit. The view is truly amazing - looking south and west for a sweeping panorama of the beach and waves crashing against rocks. The motel is very cozy and the rooms are clean. REAL firewood is provided for the fireplace every morning, not presto logs. A nice touch and adds to the coziness. We had several sunny days where we enjoyed walks on the beach, and one very stormy day where we took a trip to Depoe Bay to watch the spouting horn (see picture) and spent the rest of the day in our room enjoying the awesome view.

Always a good stat. The cottages are the way to go. Great view, fireplace, and everyone is so nice. South end of town, but with a car, Lincoln City is not that big. Most places in town sre hotels. Nice to have a bit more space snd a kitchen.

I've been staying at the Ester Lee since the 1980's...like Goldilocks, I've slept in each bed in each cottage and larger motel and every unit is cozy and comfortable just like home! The beach views are magnificent with something new to see every day. The staff is receptive and helpful. Visitors will not be disappointed.
