This hotel was indeed very clean and clearly well cared for. The owners clearly make an effort to provide a comfortable and friendly environment for travelers who like comfort but are not looking for luxury. The room thoughtfully had a nice microwave, mini fridge and coffee pot. We stayed at the motel in early October, and although we were assigned... More

I agree with the other reviews, that this place was very clean and comfortable. But that is all it had going for it. I'm sure you could find other motels, comparable. The property was strewn with "stuff" looked like storage of the owners. The pool and patio area, not very appealing. The owners where not very helpful at all,,,in fact... More

The motel is VERY clean. I felt safe walking around barefoot because the carpet was so clean. The room is simply decorated and very spacious (we had a queen bed, and another bed could have easily fit in here). The room has a small fridge, microwave & coffee maker. The lady at the front desk was very friendly, and we... More

Location, location, location nicely placed between Ephraim and Sister Bay. Room was cozy, clean, beds were great, front desk people were very helpful especially with finding restaurants. Heat worked well, frig. and microwave were handy. Breakfast was so so but I didn't stay there for breakfast. We liked the room (16)

Very clean and comfortable. The room was a little smaller than we would have liked but, for the price and cleanliness we would gladly stay there again. Continental breakfast was not to our liking, my husband is diabetic and I do not like sweets or oatmeal but, we went to Carroll House just down the street for our breakfast and... More

We found this place on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The rate was very reasonable, and the room was quiet and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. The "motel' is more of a "semi-resort' in that there were BBQ grills and picnic tables for those who wanted to cook out. Moreover, the resort is... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ephraim Motel in August 2014. Our room was clean and comfortable and in a quiet off the main road setting. Enjoyed having free bikes to use and walked the little hiking area on the property. It's close to good eating places and their continental breakfast was very nice too. We'd surely go back... More

Making a reservation went very smoothly. The room was an older style but adequate. When we checked in the desk clerk never mentioned there was a breakfast so we missed out on that. She also did not know much about local restaurants. It's clean and quiet. I can't rave about the place, just adequate for the price.

We arrived and the owners Julie and Scott greeted us with a warm smile and provided great information about the area. The grounds are well kept. In the front yard there are kids yard games and a fire pit with chairs to have a warm conversation with friends and family. The rooms are set back from the road so you... More

We were finishing up our vacation having taken the SS Badger across Lake Michigan and then drove up to Door county for a 1 1/2 day visit. This was such a nice change from the usual chains. First, our reservation process was very easy and done from the hotel website via e-mail beforehand. The owners responded very quickly with rate... More
