Great place that will please your wallet. Lovely location where you can walk to many things around. Well taken care of here. Location here in Fish Creek gives a good base to travel up and down DC. Many places to eat near by also.

Mary and her husband were so sweet that it felt like a home away from home. They definitely have pride of ownership and look out for their guests best interests. The rooms were a great price and right in the middle of town! Everyone was so friendly that we felt like we had our own little community!

I believe that By The Bay is the best value in Fish Creek. This is a motel located right in the middle of town. You can walk to all of the restaurants, bars and shopping. The public beach is right across the street. The rooms are clean and the rear building rooms are especially airy. Walking distance also to Peninsula... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay at By the Bay. John & Mary maintain a very clean and comfortable motel. The grounds are kept up nicely with beautiful flowers, etc. The motel is centrally located so an easy walk for shopping and dining. Would easily stay here again. Price was right.

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
