Upon check in on 8/15 in the early evening (5pm-ish) we were greeted by a not-so-friendly desk clerk. Not sure of her name, but she wasn't overly friendly as we had experienced on prior visits (we have stayed here multiple times). She was even talking down to an employee in front of us! She also complained about the new cable... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. All of the staff here at the Waterbury Inn are treated like family and we work together as a team. Some of our international students do have a language barrier and we sometimes need to go in depth or repeat things before they may understand what we are asking... More

My husband, myself and my son stayed in a two bedroom-studio room, the room was a little cramped but not overly cramped, the room had almost everything you could find at home!! The hotel facility was very clean, the owners are very nice!! The outdoor pool had nice outdoor chairs, and the grills were right next to the outdoor pool,... More

We used a 2 bedroom deluxe-plenty of room and privacy for two adults and 3 kids. Closely located to shopping, swimming, parks, etc. Very clean, wonderful on site facilities like grill area and pool. We loved it and will return.

We decided to branch out this year and try a new hotel (we've stayed in lots of different places in Door County, but tend to return to a select couple). We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was wonderful. The room was a perfect setup for us (2 adults, plus 2 kids - 4 & 6 years old). We had... More

We just returned from a three day scooter riding vacation in Door County. We stayed at The Waterbury Inn on a recommendation from a friend and I was thrilled with this property. The location is great, not to close to the busy "down town" areas, but close enough to restaurants, Peninsula Park, Washington Island ferry, shopping, etc. Upon check in... More

We checked in and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with nice view of the outside. We didn't have time to take advantage of any of the pools, but they seemed very nice and well maintained. There were a number of families enjoying them. Overall, a very nice experience for a reasonable... More

We just spent the Fourth of July holiday at the Waterbury and loved it! Every staff member was friendly and incredibly helpful. Traci was especially great! Our room was spotless and the view from our kitchen/living room made us feel like we were in a tree house. We will definitely be back to stay at the Waterbury.

While we liked the location, it was not the best overall experience. Wally was very nice, but Traci was rude to everyone. We were shocked at the way she talked to the guests. Also, our room was 90 degrees when we checked in, and it took a very long time to cool it down.

I am sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience during your stay with us. I did not have much interaction that weekend with guests as I did not work a shift. I was just back up for our front desk and maintenance personnel and had minimal contact with our guests. The only interaction I had with... More

I have made several trips to Door County, but this was my first stay at the Waterbury Inn. What a wonderful experience! The Waterbury Inn is north of Ephraim and is right in the middle of all the towns, so it is easy to go anywhere on the peninsula . I was traveling with an old friend, so we each... More
