My wife and arrived on Tuesday without reservations, found this place located within walking distance of all activities within Fish Creek. Had a great room and decided to stay 2 nights as it as centrally located within Door County. The owners are on-site and are very friendly and helpful. Rates were great for midweek as well. I would definitely stay... More

Only spent one night but it was well located, well kept and priced right (off season stay). Walking distance to all there was to see and do in Fish Creek. Mary was friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

While the decor is rustic, this motel is clean & comfortable. The location is great being just across the street from a beach & within walking distance of shops & resturants in Fish Creek. The gardens are full of beautiful flowers & it is apparent that great care is taken in keeping this motel in good shape. We did enjoy... More

This was an awesome spot as far as location. Close to everything, across from the beach, next door to coffee shop, restaurants, shopping. Can walk to marina (2 blks) It was clean and quiet. My ONLY complaint is the mattresses were hard as a rock. Neither of us slept well because of it. I mean terrible. That would be the... More

This was our 4th trip to Door County and first time at this motel. This hotel is convenient to everything in Fish Creek. You can park your car and walk every where within town. I am not fussy about beds but this was the worst mattress I have ever slept on. I woke all 3 mornings with a backache. Also... More

I live in southern Door County and spent Halloween Saturday in Fish Creek. Needed a clean, convenient place to sleep as opposed to late night driving. I found the By the Bay to be very clean, happy to find a fridge in the room, friendly owner, easy parking, and best of all, it is in the PERFECT location convenient to... More

This motel is a little older, but very clean. The price is very much in line with other places to stay in Door County. The owners are very friendly and do their best to keep customers happy. The motel is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and bars. No driving necessary if you want to have a drink with your... More

Rooms are small, dark, and musty-smelling. They have not been remodeled in a long time. Also over-priced. My family and I actually got a great room just up the street at ParkWood Lodge. The rooms were cleaner, cheaper, and they have a pool, hot tub, game room and tennis courts.

Stayed at the By the Bay over last weekend for an anniversary get away. Rooms are very adequate and SUPER CLEAN!! The staff is very friendly and accomodating. We had a water view room and were just steps away from the beach. Shopping and our favorite restaurants were also within walking distance. It is not a fancy place and the... More
