We stayed in Room #101 (King) for 4 weeknights - our friends were in the adjacent Room #103. Room #101 is a little larger - with a couch and table for 4 - we wanted more room to play cards at the end of each night (but we were always too tired to do that). There was a good-sized fridge... More

A very nice room with two queen beds, small kitchenette. Ephraim Shores is across the street from the water but a lovely view, private beach for guests of the hotel. A storm door in the room leads directly to a small patio adjacent to the room. All of the rooms facing the water have a door that leads to that... More

We have been coming to Dior County for 10-12 years and have stayed at many hotels. This hotel was the cleanest and friendliest. Great view!! Get a room facing the bay! It's worth the few extra dollars! We had a first floor view and it was perfect. Only complaint is the coffee is weak. Not much to complain about. We... More

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

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
