At half the cost of a room anywhere else in the Ephraim / Sister Bay area, this place is perfect. It's cute and clean, the pool is amazing and so is the service. It lacks some things that other travelers might require - fast wi-fi (though it is free wi-fi), central air (though the window unit kept us comfy on... More

The Ephraim Motel is charming, immaculate, helpful and in a perfect location. It's in a touristy area, but far enough away that it's less congested. Close to the State Park for biking and hiking. They have a continental breakfast, which was more than enough to start our day. Loved our two day stay, and would go back if we visit... More

I recently stayed at the Ephraim Motel for 3 nights and was so happy with my experience. The motel is located just outside of the main "downtown" area of Ephraim and minutes from Sister Bay. It really was the perfect location - central to many of the towns in Door County and all the shops and attractions. Right across the... More

Easy to find, clean, well kept accomidations. The rooms were quiet, pool was clean. Safe, easy place to store our bicycles. Several areas for grilling available, close to activities. Kid friendly, relaxing place to stay.

The Bay side of Door County has a lot of action and people, so this hotel was such a nice place to relax after a day of tourism. Our toddler loved the pool and yard. You're within minutes of downtown Ephraim and Sister Bay. Very nice to have the good sized frig and microwave.

Easy access, great location, clean and quiet. This was a perfect stopping point on our tour of Lake Michigan. The pool is a highlight on a hot summer afternoon. The price is very competitive, and much more affordable than many other places in Door County. Breakfast is fairly standard, but that's no surprise. Would definitely stay here again.

Very clean facility and friendly staff, but the room was rather small. It is really inconvenient to have to move someone away from the sink to get to the bath area. Also, only one comfortable chair for reading. Had a table and chairs and good bed, but I would have liked a little more space in the room.

Quiet quaint motel nestled in a beautifully appointed grounds. The rooms are a bit small but who is staying in them anyway. We enjoyed the pool area when not at the beach and the kids played on the grounds. It was wonderful.

We have visited beautiful Door County annually for many years. Started out in a camper, moved on to motels and rentals by owner - and finally found the most charming place to stay....Ephraim Motel! What a gem! The owner and staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The lobby and breakfast area are immaculate....and the breakfast is a nice touch.... More

We found this Motel to be very well kept, very clean and at a reasonable (mid-summer) price. Location is norther half of Door County WI just off Hwy 42. Wonderful staff. My only MINOR negative is the breakfast is a bit meager for the rate, but there is plenty to eat.
