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

This is a great motel, yes I said motel. This is a real sleeper, I would not have picked it out of a book, but the reviews were good from other trip advisors. It has large rooms, a bit old in design, but the view of Green Bay is spectacular. They have chairs and lounges right on the Bay,available only... More

Happily I was able to get a room for the holiday weekend and not be required a 3 night minimum! The view of the harbor was great, the private pier with chairs and a very clean updated room. $160 is more than I'd prefer spending, but with not much available for the holiday weekend, I was glad to get this....

We enjoyed our stay at Ephraim shores. The location was great for quiet walks, walks to shops and restaurants and relaxing by the water. Staff was especially friendly and rooms were comfortable and prices were reasonable. I would recommend it.

Was expecting more from this restaurant only thing going for it is the view of the water. My husband had the Ribeye Steak it was fatty and not all that good. The dessert was a joke you got a small dish of icecream that was scooped with a melon scooper it came with the dinner we thought we would share... More

Ephraim Shores is always clean and comfortable. Relaxing waterfront for watching boaters, kayakers, and paddle boarders. Great location for viewing the most beautiful sunsets. Convenient location. Staff is above and beyond amazing.

We have used Ephraim Shores Motel and Restaurant for many vacations over the past 20 years. It is an older but modernized place to stay. When one goes to Door County, Ephraim Shores Motel, right on Eagle Bay, gives an authentic flavor of the area--not a huge, anonymous newly-built monster resort. It is in the middle of Door County, making... More
