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

We love this motel because the view is beautiful. We always go to Wilson's and get an ice cream cone and walk on the walk way along the shore line. Owners are always helpful and pleasant. This is not the fanciest one in town, but love the view and location. Also, like to come home to the "quieter" town after... More

The room we had on the 2nd floor was absolutely beautiful, with a sunset view that took our breaths away. The pool was big and clean, free bikes to use around Door County, and a spectacular staff! Definitely stay here if you're in Door County.

I recently stayed at Ephraim Shores and was very disappointed with their customer service. The rooms are fine nothing special. If anything they are a little moldy and outdated. But regardless, my husband and I can up for my birthday and when asked to switch to a less expensive room so we could have a King bed instead of two... More

Jolynn N, Manager at Ephraim Shores Motel & Restaurant, responded to this review

I am sorry you felt your stay with us was not what you expected. The waterfront room that you stayed in is a very popular room type with many of our guests. When a guest wants to switch to a different type room or less expensive room, we are happy to do that provided our housekeeping staff is still on... More
