“Great value for Door County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2010

We were surprised to find that Sturgeon Bay has really made a comeback as a tourist spot in Door County. Our stay at this resort was a deal on price. Accommodations were very clean and the view from our balcony was spectacular. Breakfast at the white tablecloth restaurant overlooking the bay was excellent. The resort now has their own yacht, the Harbor Lady, which took us out for a two hour sunset cruise for $8! Wow... that was great. This resort is only a short drive to Egg Harbor and the middle of Door County where the room prices could be easily twice as much. Outdoor pool overlooks the bay. Only drawback: the lighting in the bedroom is very dim so no reading is really possible.

Beautiful location, clean rooms BUT SADLY aloof and nearly rude front desk staff, PLASTIC CUPS (!) in the rooms, not very good sound insulation, no individual controls of bed lamps so if one is on they're both on and a restaurant that doesn't open until 7:30 a.m. during peak season and no apologies about it. We really wanted to love Stone Harbor but so much travelers should take for granted a place like this just isn't here. If they stepped up their game even just a little bit it'd be so much better. But now it's not so great.

We'll grant you that this was a busy weekend at the resort, but room service trays at our neighbors' doors for our entire stay of 18 hours?! That's unacceptable. My stomach churned every time we approached or left the room.

Also, as an earlier reviewer mentioned, the bedding is uncomfortable. The room that we were in had a bed that retracted into the wall so as to give the room more of a condo feel. The mattress was sofabed thin, supported by thin matting. The sheets didn't fit the bed well, slipping on the shiny surface of the mattress to end up in the center of the bed by morning.

This is a large hotel, and I am sure there are other room configurations and more comfortable mattresses. With more attention to detail and comfort, this could be a pleasant stay.

It was everything we could imagine. We stayed in one of the premiere suites which was absolutely breath taking. The room was extremely clean and very comfortable. The staff at Stone Harbor Resort went above and beyond our expectations to make sure our stay was unforgettable.

The staff made sure to please my every request. Not only did they impress me with their service, but I was very satisfied with how polite and courteous they were to us.

The restaurant was amazing... Great view of the Harbor while we ate and the wait staff was right there at all times to make sure everything was perfect.

Overall, I am more than satisfied with our stay and will be returning very soon.

The hotel is right in downtown Sturgeon Bay, which was nice, very close to Red Oak Winery and Sage Restaurant. The room was clean, but left a lot to be desired. The walls were paper thin. We could hear our neighbors' conversations all night. And while this is a bit nit picky, the bath towels weren't much bigger than the hand towels. The restaurant on site is terrible. In the evening it was filled with smokers, and the breakfast was horrible. The stuffed french toast is more like a french toast sandwich with a cold lumpy cream cheese cherry mixture in the middle, the cappuccino is the gas station kind that tastes more like hot chocolate, and my husband's hash browns tasted like they had been deep fried in 10 year old oil. Overall a very average hotel.

We just returned from a great weekend at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay. They managed the unpredictable fall weather to allow for a wonderful wedding experience. We enjoyed the beautiful fall colors and Lake Michigan! The resort was exceptional with accommadations, friendly staff, great food and atmosphere. We are thinking another trip there to experience a guided fishing trip should be done!

Our stay here was less then great. From the time we walked with the poor customer service at the front desk and were told about the $200 fee to hold for incidents or the $50 in cash (which they never checked) to the small room with no microwave, fridge, sitting area and tiny TV. I would not stay here again. This is a hotel not a resort. I could have had a better stay at a Holiday Inn with a nicer room then this. Because we were disappointed in our room and the resort, we never spent time in the Pub or restaurant and took our money elsewhere.
I would find somewhere else to stay
