Very good food decent prices. No waiting. Pleasant staff. Homemade ice tea! I got salmon which was great and the Santa Fe salad was great too! I love home made ice tea. Would return! Second story walk up. I don't know if there is an elevator. You could call and ask I suppose.

We have been staying here for the past 5 years. Their rooms are always clean and just recently put in new carpet, TV and dressers. The room we always gets looks over Green Bay and is on the second floor. They are very friendly. We don't stay anywhere else.

We have been coming to Door County since 1992, and have stayed at Ephraim Shores almost every time. Ahh . . . where to start . . . the hotel is always clean and facilities are always functional. But that is not where its charm lies. Its charm lies in the people. The same people are there year after year.... More

We spent several nights at Ephraim Shores and enjoyed our stay. The motel is in an excellent location--across the street from the bay and near lots of Door County attractions. The rooms are good-sized and clean. The decor is dated, but the carpet is new (some older reviews mentioned worn carpet). We had an upstairs queen room with partial view.... More

My husband and I decided to take a few days for a quick trip to Door County, WI. What a great idea! Ephraim Shores Motel was perfect for a great view of the bay. The little out door patio was a great place to watch the sun go down. The only thing I would like to see changed in the... More

Ephraim Shores is a perfect spot for your Door County trip. Located in the Village of Ephraim, it is within walking (or riding on the complimentary bikes) distance of charming shops and restaurants as well as the beautiful beach and vistas of Green Bay. Water sports (kayak, jet-ski rentals are available just down the street) and the hotel's private beach... More

My wife and I recently spent a few nights in the Door County Peninsula at Ephraim Shores Motel (1st time) which was very nice. The room was very clean and had an outdoor balcony to sit and relax. The motel is about in the middle of the town and in walking distance of several shops, beaches, and eateries. The motel... More
