Ephraim is the town to stay because of the location and the expanse of strip along the water, seldom seen in other areas of Door county. This hotel is clean and bright and will meet your needs well if you know what to expect. The suite we stayed in was on the second floor over looking the post office restaurant and fish boil fire pit. The hotel staff did attempt to encourage us to get a "better view" for about $75.00 per night more, we were staying 5 nights so we stuck with our choice. We were very glad because in truth, there is no bad view at this place and each room on the upper levels have balconies with rockers that over look the water. Unless you absolutely must see water from every angle while you are in your room, then there really is no need to pay the higher rate because the water is there the moment you open your door. The kitchen was good but bring your own frying pan if you want to cook eggs because theirs is not non stick. We had our 11 and 14 year old with us and it worked great.The pool is clean and refreshing, the view is awesome and the rooms are all updated and comfortable. I do think that if you want the full experience, do not stay on the first floor because you will lose the view. Also, ask if your room is right in front of a staircase, those rooms appeared to be quite noisy when people arrive. Only criticism is that if you stay in the summer know that the air conditioning is in the living room only so the kids tend to freeze and the adults need to keep the door open and use the ceiling fan in the bedroom to be reasonably comfortable. It was record high temps when we stayed so it would not be a problem most of the year.
