While it is called a resort, it is an older two story motel. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. In door pool had a very strong smell of chlorine. Location is excellent, directly across the road from the bay, which is great for viewing the sunsets and in the geographic center of the County in terms of points of... More

The motel itself is nothing special at all. Small dark cramped rooms, the ceiling tiles were coming off a little, smelled damp and musty. Granted, we had a room that looked out over the parking lot. Next time I would get a lake view room I guess for more light and fresh air. BUT, the location is awesome. Right across... More

This our 11th year coming to Door County. This is the 9th time we've stayed here on our trip. The staff is always friendly and rooms are very, very clean. We've already made our reservations for 2017.

We spent a night here and we were very impressed for the price. $20 extra for the lake view was worth it, the balcony with chairs made it even better. Our room had a refrigerator, a little sink and counter space, very clean bathroom, nice big TV, clean and comfy beds. Pool, hot tub, and exercise room we did not... More

Very clean, new bedding, new carpet, freshly painted rooms. View of the lake and private deck to sit on. We didn't use the pool,but it looked very clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Walking distance to Chef's Top Hat and a couple of shops.

Very clean, comfortable room. It could use a little updating in the carpets, tile, and fans in the bathroom. Everything was very clean but outdated. A nice thing was the balcony directly off our room. I think every room in this hotel has a nice view of the water. The whole establishment is non smoking, and with my asthma, it... More

We had a whirlpool room. It was very spacious with a door leading out into a small patio with a beautiful view of the bay and beautiful sunsets. The staff was very accommodating. The rooms were very clean. You can use bicycles to ride around free of charge. There is an indoor pool a small fitness center and a game... More

This was a very affordable motel. A very spacious room with a mini frig, microwave, & mini sink. We were informed shortly before our stay that the restaurant above the motel had closed. So, we took our own breakfast foods & made use of the microwave. The only thing I did not like was that the bed was to firm... More
