We had a room in the back with no view but didn't plan to spend any time other that eating and showering in the room. A little musty but turned the air on and it got better. Great rate. Perfect location. We parked the car and walked to breakfast, waterfront, shopping, and fish boil. Also short drive to other coastal towns, brewery and wineries. Boat rentals, jet skies, boat tours and trolleys. It rained most of the weekend but we found plenty of things to do.

Room Tip: There are rooms in the front of the motel with a lake view and patio area if you plan on hanging out...

We enjoyed our stay in this conveniently located motel. The owners, Mary and John were friendly, the room was clean (Room 7 Top Floor Front Bldg), the bed was comfortable, the view was nice, good restaurants and shops were within walking distance and overall this was a great place to stay for hopscotching around Door County.

In addition John provided me materials to wash sand-flies off my car I ran into the night before while heading into Door county. I really appreciated this as the car was loaded with them. I strongly recommend you arrive to Door county before dark as the sand-flies coming in from Green Bay are terrible at night. Once to the interior of the peninsula there were no more problems.

Room Tip: Room 7, the room we had, was quite private. It was on the top floor front bldg. Second floor rooms a...

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 A few minor things: toilet was a little worrisome at times, shower stream was a little weak, and rooms a little outdated..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.
