“It is definitely on our "will return" list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2011

Ephrain motel is an extremely clean and well maintained facility with beautiful grounds and friendly staff. We enjoyed chatting with owners Julie and Scott Barnes who had many suggestions to help make our 3 night stay more enjoyable. We are looking forward to returning and will make it a regular stay when we are in Door County.

Everything about this motel met our expectations except the bed,and that's the most important item we look for. We asked for a king bed ,but found it to be very firm and old.Really liked the location,cleanliness,ect,but need to upgrade their bedding.

DCinnkeeper, Owner at Ephraim Motel, responded to this review, September 2, 2011
Julie and I want to thank you for taking the time to review our motel after your recent stay. We are very sorry that all your expectations were not met. We are very proud of our motel and try our best to provide an extremely clean and restful stay here in the heart of Door County. We are sorry to hear in your review that your stay with us was not as comfortable as it could have been.

As for your mattress. All of our bedding is newer, and to keep it in top shape is flipped and rotated twice during the season. Our choice to purchase this style or firmness of bedding was made after discussions with mattress company representatives. The style and firmness purchased was shown to provide the greatest comfort to the most people. Unfortunately your comfort needs were not met by this bedding. Please accept our deepest apologies and know that we are using this information to improve our accomodations for those with special needs or requirements.

Thank You, Scott and Julie Barnes

This is the first time I have ever written a review. By chance last year I booked the Ephraim Motel because of the outdoor pool and location, but the whole package has brought us back again. My wife and I love this motel. You get a great place for a great price. It is the only place in the area that we truly love staying at. Great rooms, very clean. The grounds are awesome, with grills, seating and great landscaping. The pool is charming and is a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle that is door county. We will be back again next year and the year after that...

My wife and I spent a night at the Ephraim Motel while vacationing in July.
I have to say it was of the most relaxing stays I have had in a long while.
Our time was spent mostly near the pool sipping cocktails. The setting is very quiet,
the bed was very comfortable, and the room was very clean. We found the Ephraim Motel to be a great value.

Everything was really great. Staff are friendly, the rooms are extremely clean, the pool is great. I liked the grounds, the flowers everywhere were so pretty. It's close to the Summer Kitchen, a great place to eat breakfast (or anything else) and shopping. The continental breakfast is a nice surprise and very good. I would recommend this place and stay there again!

Room Tip: Clean and Comfortable

Pros: Very Clean, Free Wi-Fi, Free Breakfast, Central Location
Cons: No Beach Access

Motels typically carry a negative connotation to them, at least where we live. But the Ephraim Motel was by far the cleanest motel we've ever stayed at and the service was very pleasant as well. This is a true hidden gem in Door County and a great value if you're just looking for a place to sleep and relax. The only downside is there is no beach access from this property, but because of it's ideal location, it's only a few minutes drive to various beaches along the western peninsula. We highly recommend and would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you book during the week, there is a Trip Advisor 10% off coupon that can be applied.

I have stayed here before and will be back again. Easy location to go north or south on the peninsula. Nice rooms with refrigerator and microwave. Pool is a nice place to relax and nice sitting areas with grills.
