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

This was our first stay at Ephraim Shores. It's ideally located offering close proximity to several restaurants & shops. The front desk was friendly & attentive. Lana was so accommodating! We settled into our room quickly & opened up our door to the outside to feel the lovely breeze & look at the view of the water. The motel has... 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

We return here every year! The place is immaculate, the staff is very friendly. The 2nd Story Restaurant is very good and a great value. Request a room looking out at the lake for a spectacular view! Our only complaint about Ephraim Shores is that the pool is always extremely cold. My kids won't even swim in it and apparently... More

We loved our stay at this updated, clean, waterfront property. The indoor pool and hot tub were a perfect oasis after watching the sun set. We walked to several restaurants and loved the location between Fish Creek and Sister Bay.

We headed up to Door County for a quick weekend get away and stopped in at this lovely little motel on arrival. We were warmly welcomed and given keys to our requested king suite (with whirlpool) balcony room overlooking the harbor. A great rate as it was off season. Although the room might seem a bit outdated on first glance,... More
