“We had a fantastic time!”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

Everything was great, the owners, the pool, the continental breakfast, the proximity of the motel to where we were going, it was great and we would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: Ask for the king size bed!

Our first visit to Door County and we couldn't have been luckier than to find the Ephraim Motel in Ephraim Wisconsin. Exceptionally clean and comfortable rooms. Location is perfect for visiting the entire region. We stayed for 5 nights and it felt like home whenever we returned to our room. Scott and Julie took good care of us and went out of their way to help when we had a battery problem on our motorcycle. Our next visit will be easy to plan, we will certainly stay at the Ephraim Motel!! It's our home in Door County!

What brought us to this charming motel was the affordability and availability with a day rate. What brings us back is the cleanliness of the units, the family like atmosphere and the willingness to accommodate a few of my health issues.
Due to an asthma condition, I tend to seek out facilities that are greener and use less toxic, heavily perfumed detergents and cleaning products. This is the best of the best where it is super clean and not covered up with room deodorizers making for free breathing!
Each summer our family meets in Ephraim and we look forward to knowing we have a great place to stay. I highly recommend staying there, you won't be disappointed!

Best bang for your buck in Door County~ hands down. Clean, cozy, beautiful pool, beautiful grounds, quiet nights, great continental breakfast. But what makes it so awesome are the hosts, Julie and Scott. They are just wonderful people, plain and simple.

We go up to Door County every year and we always stay at the Ephraim Motel. The rooms are always clean and fresh. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. You can see they take great pride in everything they do. Everywhere you look is another delight - a beautiful crystal clean pool, colorful fragrant flowers, tasty continental breakfast, board games and a computer in the lobby and the list goes on and on. Need ideas of what to do? Just ask Julie or Scott - they have lots of ideas. The motel is super affordable and in a great location, central to everything we like to do while there. It feels like coming home every time we visit. You won't find more gracious and friendly hosts than Julie and Scott, and you won't regret staying with them. I can't recommend them more highly. Looking forward to our next trip up to Door County and of course, we'll be staying at the Ephraim Motel. When all is said and done, it's that "coming home" atmosphere that continues to bring us back year after year.

We are repeat customers of Julie and Scott's and we always have a good time when we stay at the Ephraim Motel. We love the facilities because it is off the beaten path of the downtown and it is right across from the world famous Red Putter. The facilities are always clean and well maintained. Every morning, we are greeted with a warm and friendly hello and when we need suggestions of things to do, they go to great lengths to offer up ideas that really seem to fit our mood for the day. Weather it is just having breakfast in the greeting area or laying by the heated pool, they have really worked hard to develop a warm and inviting atmosphere for our treasured vacations. We really hate to leave when the vacation is over. Julie and Scott really seem to make going to the Door much more special each and every time.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and neat.

This hotel is on the north side of Ephraim. It's very easy to get to anywhere in Door County from here. The hotel rooms are clean and the owners Julie and Scott are wonderful. The continental breakfast has enough to fuel you up until lunch somewhere else, even Washington Island. The room we stayed in had a queen bed, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. We ran out of coffee and they were happy to give us more. We didn't swim in the pool but did see it and it was very nice. Can't say enough.
