Stayed here a week with family, ages ranging from 2 to 67, during 4th of July week. Had two first floor, 2-bedroom units. Overall we were pretty happy with the place. It isn't fancy, but it is great for kids and families. Details...
--Kids' stuff is really special here: 2 pools (indoor, outdoor), hot tubs, a ball pit and jungle gym type thing inside, another jungle gym outside, video games, and so on.
--Condo units were decent, nothing spectacular. If it were a hotel room, probably a 2.5 star level. But it is a condo, so it can have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, has a kitchen, porch, etc.
--Units were kept clean
--Location is pretty good, a block off the main drag in Egg Harbor and a 5 minute walk to the harbor and shops, etc. Maybe 15 minutes to beach on foot, 5 in car.
--Appointments were a bit chintzy, some lights and furniture in need of replacing or repairing
--In the 2-bedroom unit we had, the main area and larger bedroom had window A/C units (which are loud, but work OK), but the 2nd bedroom DOES NOT have A/C. It has a door, and it has a fan in the wall leading to the main area. So on a hot day, the 2nd bedroom stays a bit too warm.
--Beds are OK, nothing great.
One Suggestion to the resort if they are reading - get an inside bike rack to lock to, and that is sheltered! Lots of people take bikes, you don't allow them in the rooms, so... would be nice to lock them up inside somewhere. Or just add a small concrete pad and lock bar to the porches.
Overall, having stayed other places in Door County, for families, I'd recommend it. If you want a romantic weekend and/or a little luxury, this is not your first choice (but wouldn't be terrible). Just go in understanding these are rental condos, not hotel rooms.
