This is an older motel, but is very clean. Our only complaint was that the cushioned chairs or carpet smelled very musty. Room wasn't huge, but large enough for 2 beds and able to move around. Bathroom was standard, had great water pressure. Check in/out was easy. Had ice in a freezer outside of the office. Coffee after 7:30 and... More

I spent one night here, great place if you're on a budget. I really liked the location; tucked up into the bluff off the beaten path. The place is really cute from the street and really dated (in a good way) on the inside. However My room needed some repairs- busted tiles in the shower, caulking falling off the wall... More

Took a July 4th vacation to Sister Bay for the first time. As I always do, I search for places to stay. I also search for good price. I found this neat little cottage. It is very clean, safe, and only walking distance to town. The price is reasonable. I would recommend this place.

We decided to do a day trip to Sister Bay, ending up finding this motel for the reasonable price and we could not have been happier. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. They have nice tables out front which were great for just have some drinks and relaxing. They also have a fire pit which looked nice. We did... More

From the very start, owners Nancy and Kurt were very kind and enthusiastic about their small, reasonably-priced motel and Door County in general. We stayed in their two-bedroom suite above their office. It has a full kitchen, two bedrooms, living room, bathroom and a "little room," as our kids called it, with just a small couch (great for meditation, by... More

This motel is clean, safe and comfortable. It is also reasonably priced. The innkeepers are friendly and accommodating. If you looking for a five star resort you should not stay here. If you are looking for a motel that is clean, safe, comfortable and an excellent value, you should consider this motel. We have been here twice and will try... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend in Door County and had plans for each day and evening so really just needed a place to sleep. This motel was one of the lowest priced and was centrally located. We also liked the fact it was off the highway and quiet. The room was just what we wanted, clean and... More

I have stayed here often as you can't beat the price or the location. The rooms are clean, the tables outside are a nice touch--my sister and I picnic or have an evening drink here often--and you can easily walk to everything in Sister Bay. You won't break the bank and you'll have money to spend shopping and eating while... More

In order to keep prices down, the Bluffside Motel has removed phones from the rooms. WIFI is also very limited to a few outside areas and rooms close to the office. The property is clean and the owner very accommodating. The mattress was surprisingly good for a budget property. On three unusually hot days in July, the very old and... More
