It is in a good location but very dated and smell of either cleaning solution and mustiness never went away. The linens need replacing and pillows are flat and hard. Overall I would spend a little more for a comfortable room to relax at night.

We really enjoyed our stay! Great owners, location was killer, clean rooms, A/C was glorious, and the memory foam mattress was amazing! Perfectly located across from Fish Creek's small beach! Central located and close to all stores, bars, and restaurants. A few minor things: toilet was a little worrisome at times, shower stream was a little weak, and rooms a little outdated.. but those are small things which we overlooked..we already booked for next year!

The location of this motel is perfect - across the street from the public beach amid all the attractions at Fish Creek. The room was quite small, but very clean. There is a small, but not private balcony as well as a front porch area for taking a break. It would have been nice to have a coffee pot in the room for early risers who enjoy Door County Coffee. The lobby has coffee, but not until it opens. Also would have appreciated an iron for quick touch ups. No breakfast or pool on site.

This older 2 story motel is centrally located on Hwy 42 in Fish Creek. The rooms are dated but nice. The walls are pretty thin and expect noise from neighbors. I recommend a second story room as the first floor rooms are noisy and chairs are often drug across the balconies above. Coffee in the Am only no breakfast. Great views of the bay and convenient walking distance from down town restaurants and shopping. Nice views of the bay although somewhat obstructed but they are just across the street. The front desk staff is super friendly and welcoming. Would stay here again.

Room tip: Second floor room recommended, south side would be quieter but you loose the bay views.

We had a girls weekend in Door County and stayed at By the Bay Motel. It was very reasonably priced and very clean. The view from the private patio was awesome too.
Only complaint is it needs some updates (wallpaper). But for being as outdated as it was, It was extremely clean! We will be back.
