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.

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 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
