“Winter weekend getaway”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We have been coming to Algoma Beach Motel for about thirty years for summer vacations. This time we tried a winter weekend getaway just to see what the area is like in the winter. We have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the rooms to be very clean and reasonable. Being located right on the beach is a big plus and the view is awesome. The Algoma location is close enough to Door County for easy access without all of the busyness.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the lakeside as the view is great and the sunrises are awesome.

We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation with us in Winter. You picked a great time to come because of the ice accumulation on Lake Michigan and the gorgeous icebergs that were created. Thank you for the great review. We look forward to seeing you in Summer. :)

Spent a restful night. Priced well, and had a very pretty moonrise and better sunrise. Clean and friendly. If you are going to the "Door" worth the time to spend the night on the way from MKE. Take time to walk the beach, and maybe a campfire at the waters edge(the motel sells firewood) with your " Honey"

Just returned from a trip to Algoma, Wisconsin, a small village nestled on the shores of magnificent Lake Michigan. Our lodging was at the Algoma Beach Motel which had recently undergone some sprucing-up and is under new management.

When checking-in, we were told the transaction for our stay would immediately be charged to our credit card which was a bit unsettling, but perhaps a slight adjustment in customer service skills would tweak this issue. The employee was sincerely friendly and most welcoming.

Being situated on the lake, we anticipated the room would have a slight musty odor, and it did. However, the mesmerizing panorama of Lake Michigan immediately grabbed our attention, and with the opening of the balcony doors, must was replaced with crisp lake air and the hypnotic lull of waves upon the shore brought instant serenity.

The room was freshly painted, clean and the bed was comfortable. Our one major complaint was that the stained carpeting needed replacement. Though we were told the carpet had a recent cleaning, the cheap quality and flat monotone color could not hide a few sizable splotches. The bathroom had undergone a basic update and though a bit small, met our needs. A coffee maker in the room would be a nice touch as would ceramic cups and glass beverage glasses.

We sincerely hope this family owned motel does well. With a million dollar view, friendly service and adequate accommodations, the Algoma Beach Motel is close to getting it right.

Room Tip: We had no one on either side of our room so no idea if noise would be a problem. Make certain to ge...

At first I was in shock by the décor and size-décor right out of the 60's, or 70's--the room was very clean, which is my main requirement--the bed iffy, could use new mattresses---but the view and the beach and fire pits, worth every penny. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake are small, but the view is worth it

We traveled to Algoma Beach in to see the colors in Door county over Columbus Day Weekend. Most Hotels were full or required a 3 day stay. The Algoma beach inn didn't have this requirement. We had a great time. The room was clean and even had a nice porch. It was a beautiful location litterally on the beach with a view of a boardwalk and lighthouse. I also recieved a discount for AAA. Everything was great and I would stay again.

We had stayed before and enjoyed it but last fall was weird. The room was very dingy and t?he bathroom was terrible in the one story addition. The deck and view were nice. The bed was awe full too. The room was just to much like a flop house for me. Maybe the newer 2 story is better?

Room Tip: Maybe ask for another room if it looks bad.

I am so sorry to hear this. You said in your comment that you stayed here last Fall.... If so we invite you to come back and see the many updates that have taken place since then. As always if any guest is dissatisfied we will do whatever it takes to change that around. We hope you give us another chance :)

Careful booking here cuz Manager will say one thing then clerk may do another. We booked four rooms on a Thursday night for "possibly 2 nights." Despite telling receptionist within four hours of check-in "we're leaving early next morning," Manager insisted on charging two full nights. We signed nothing defining a cancellation policy, approved no $915 charge, nor did we book via discount site...but Algoma Beach Hotel went ahead and double-billed our stay.
