Reviewed October 16, 2010

I had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Waterbury Inn in a 1 bedroom with loft condo.

On the plus side:
--the rate was reasonable
--the room accomodated our travel situation very well. I was traveling with 2 other ladies and I was able to get a condo with 3 beds. It would also be ideal for families with kids who can sleep in a loft with twin beds. There was only one bath, so loft sleepers have to go downstairs to use the facilities.
--The condo had a small balcony.
--It was well equipped with the basics...microwave, dishwasher, stove, frig, large table/chairs, sitting area
--The lobby area had complimentary coffees, a large screen TV and a public computer
--Ephraim is in the heart of Door county, so it is a good location.
--Friendly staff
--Free internet and parking

On the downside:
--There are no water views....but water views come with a higher rate
--The carpet was a bit soiled
--No elevator
--Relatively short hours for the fitness center and pool. The early risers may miss having access to the facilities.
--The condos are on the small side.

We stayed in one-bedroom, ground floor suite for 3 nights. Our room was musty and had an odor. There was a dehumidifier up against a wall that we emptied twice a day so there is a lot of moisture in the room. Plus had a window AC running continuously. I suspect there was flooding there earlier in the summer. Housekeeping doesn't show up until after 3P, by then we were back for the afternoon cooking dinner before going swimming. Awkward time to show up. Indoor and outdoor pools nice, grounds nice. Location was about a mile or so from downtown Ephraim on a busy road with quite a hill between the Inn and Ephraim. Makes bicycling to and fro difficult. I would look elsewhere if all they have is ground floor units available. Second and third floors were probably better.
