We loved our stay at Ephraim Shores. Very nice rooms. The restaurant offers a complete breakfast menu and was very good. It is in a great location. Very easy to walk around town. They have a nice area across the street from the hotel with comfortable sun chairs right on the bay.

This hotel was exactly what my girlfriend and I were looking for - a decent, clean room with an excellent location. The room and hotel itself was nothing too special, but it was very clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel also had a great view of the bay and was in an excellent location, within walking distance of... More

We stayed at Ephraim Shores for two nights in June. It was our first visit to Door County. The hotel offers very clean and nice accommodations in the picturesque town of Ephraim and we found it to be a very good value. The manager, Lana is wonderful and the staff very friendly. There are balconies and ours had a very... More

The manager Lana, is very friendly and eager to please her customers. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub was inviting after a long day of shopping. Conveniently located right on hwy 42. Would stay again.

As with our previous six stays at Ephraim Shores, the rooms and motel common areas were absolutely immaculate. This is bar none, the cleanest motel/hotel we have stayed with anywhere. Further, the staff are very friendly and helpful; the views of Green Bay are unequaled; and grounds beautifully maintained. Our reservations for next year have already been made and we... More

This was the third time we have stayed here. We always enjoy this friendly, cozy motel. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are clean & comfortable. The indoor pool & spa are a real plus, as is the restaurant on the second level. The view of Eagle Harbor is lovely. The only negative is the lack of an elevator... More

We really loved this motel. We requested a second floor water view room and received it. There was a balcony we could use (chairs included) and look out at the water. It was lovely. The room was nice and large; very clean including the bathroom. We had a refrigerator and microwave and made use of them. Staff was very friendly.... More

We stayed here for a quick weekend getaway with our in-law's and nephew. Though a bit dated, rooms were very clean with plenty of room. They have a refrigerator and a microwave should you want to bring anything with your for an extended stay and a nice pool for a swim on a cloudy or rainy day. The view of... More

Staying at Ephraim Shores has been a family tradition for us since the mid 1970's - that was prior to the indoor pool! My grandchildren are the fourth generation to enjoy their yearly visit and they are known and welcomed by the office staff every year. Why do we return - the friendly staff who treat us like we are... More
