The Ephraim Motel was a great place to stay. It was very clean and quiet. The staff was really nice and you can tell they take care of the Motel. The owners are on site and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back!

I booked our stay based on a price comparison, previous reviews, and that they have a pool.

My husband, teenage daughter and I stayed her for a couple of nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Scott and Julie are wonderful hosts, providing a continental breakfast (cereal, toast, muffins, sweet rolls, milk, juice and coffee) in the lobby, which also has games and computer available. The grounds are beautiful with well maintained flowers, lawn furniture and swings, a play area for kids and the wonderful pool, which was welcoming after a day of exploring Door County. The rooms are on the smaller side, but very clean and comfortable. Having a refrigerator and microwave was a plus. Beds are comfortable and the quilts are a nice touch. It was too hot for a bonfire, lawn jarts, lasso games, etc, but perhaps on a visit this fall? Grills available, quiet location conveniently placed between Ephraim and Sister Bay. Across the street from JoJo's Pizza and Gelato, (which has excellent gelato!) and a Putt Putt Mini Golf place.

Thanks for a pleasant stay.

Spent 3 nights here and really enjoyed our stay. It's away from the highway so it's very peaceful and easy to find. The owners were so friendly and helpful and we really liked their adorable chihuahua. The room air conditioners are loud and since we were there on the hottest day of the year everyone had their A/C going day and night. This made things a bit noisy but I'm not going to consider it a complaint since it was so hot the A/C was much appreciated.

The room was clean and comfortable but it was a little cramped especially in the bathroom area. Having a microwave and fridge were big pluses for this place. The outdoor pool was also great and the water temp was perfect. Their website along with the reviews here on TA do a terrific job of presenting this place truthfully, so there were no surprises when we got there.

With so much to do in Door County you really only need your lodging for sleeping and getting cleaned up and this place is more than adequate for those needs. I give it 5 stars as there really aren't any reasons to give them less in my opinion and the price is awesome for the area. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs request a room on the ground floor as there is no elevator.

My adult daughter and I stayed at this charming motel for two nights on a little get-away and were very pleased with our accommodations. The room was very clean, the landscaping was beautiful and the hosts, Scott and Julie, were very friendly. We especially enjoyed having morning coffee on the patio that was filled with lovely flowers and plants. The location is perfect, set away from the road and we will definitely stay again.

Very clean rooms, wonderful pool, beautiful grounds, DVD player in room a must with a toddler, but A/C is really loud! We stayed during the heat wave, so A/C was a must! Perfect for children and an affordable option costing around $125 including all taxes a night in Door County for Peak Peak season for 2 adults and 1 child!

We found the Ephraim Motel to be just perfect for our extended weekend in Door County. The property is lovingly maintained with comfortable rooms, beautiful deck for breakfast, and a sparkling pool. An added touch are the gardens and potted flowers everywhere. The rooms are cozy, but no one should be staying indoors in Door County! Why spend loads of money on luxury when the Ephraim Motel provides clean, cool, well-appointed accommodations? The location is also convenient,,,about half-way between Ephraim and Sister Bay. We will be back next year.

Julie and Scott were wonderful. No nonsense accomodations with great swimming pool. It was really nice to come back from our trips during the day and have the girls splash around. Owners were excellent. I forgot to bring charcoal and Scott set me up with his personal propane tank... a real lifesaver. Julie helped me find a local doctor when one of my kids needed some antibiotics. This allowed us to stay instead of heading home early. We were able to keep all of our bikes under the stairs (and out of the rain!). Continental breakfast helped us get a good start each day. Red Putter right across the street (walking distance). We were going to stay at one of the fancier, more expensive resorts. But, we decided to stay here instead and saved money for activites around the Door. Glad we did. Highly recommended.
