We spent 5 nights in this adorable motel. I booked sort of last minute, and this was one of the few available accommodations anywhere in Door County, and was also quite inexpensive for the area, so I was a little bit apprehensive. When we pulled into the driveway I was pleasantly shocked. The grounds are gorgeous, with flowers and seating areas everywhere. The colorful buildings made me feel like we had driven right into a vintage postcard! Check-in with Audra was organized and friendly. There are 2 identical looking 2 story buildings and a separate building for the ofgice. Our deluxe queen room was on the second floor of the back building. The room was fairly spacious and nicely decorated with a cheerful floral quilt. It had a loveseat, desk, small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Everything looked brand new and spotlessly clean. The chilled bottle of cherry mimosas waiting in the refrigerator was wonderful! We really enjoyed the beautifully landscaped grounds, which include several gas and charcoal grills, fire pits, a garden swing, and numerous seating areas. A highlight is the pool, which is surrounded by grape vines and flowers and perfectly heated to a comfortable but still refreshing temperature. Breakfast is available every morning in the office, including different hot entrees every day, like biscuits and gravy, french toast, and breakfast casserole. Coffee and cookies are available throughout the day. Because of COVID there was no routine daily housekeeping, but towels, coffee, toilet paper, etc. were all readily supplied when requested. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. The motel is on a quieter stretch of HWY 42, between Ephraim and Sister Bay. It's away from the crazy traffic of either town but still within easy walking distance of Summer Kitchen, Red Putter mini golf, and a few shops. The Piggly Wiggly in Sister Bay is only a short drive up HWY 42. After busy days of sightseeing and hiking, returning to the motel felt like arriving at our own private oasis.

I recently stayed at this motel. I was forced to book for two nights when I only need one night. A two-night minimum is not uncommon for the area. When I checked in at the office, I asked if the second could be cancelled and they said no. I said fine. I got my keys to my room. The room definitely had a "moldy" smell but I did not say anything at that time. I went out with friends for a late dinner. Got back to the room at 10:30 and again got that "moldy' smell. I went to bed and after just over an hour in bed, I couldn't take the smell anymore. I packed my things, left the keys by the office and drove back to the Chicago area at 11;45pm. I called the next day explaining the odor and wanted to not be charged for the second night. They thought I was just trying to scam out of the second night charge. I explained that I would not drive five hours home on a rainy night to get out of the charge if the mold issue didn't force me to. They insisted there wasn't a mold smell in the room. THE ROOM SMELLS OF MOLD!!

Another trip to Door County has come to an end. We had another great stay at the Ephraim Motel! The grounds and room were immaculate, the staff is friendly and Julie and Scott make you feel like family. A side note: if you and your family like miniature golf - you can walk across the street the the Red Putter - a Door County institution! Can't wait to come back next year!

Nice place, very friendly staff, quiet, great location. It’s not real fancy but certainly does the job and is reasonably priced. Definitely a good value. Near Ephraim where our favorite restaurant Chef’s Hat is and near the Peninsula State Park.
