Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed at this lovely hotel during late October. Our mid-week stay allowed us to have a slightly early check in which was very convenient. We chose a room with two queen beds and it was near the rear of the building providing easy access to the off-street parking and quiet setting. This was our 4th stay at this hotel in the past 3 years and although I had high expectations based on prior visits, everything was outstanding. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. The room was above average in size and did not feel crowded with the 2 queen beds. The level of cleanliness and atttention to details on the maintenance is second to none. The convenient location makes walking to all of the Fish Creek shops and restaurants a breeze. We look forward to returning in the future.

Room Tip: The rooms to the rear of the hotel provide a quiet location when the Fish Creek activity is in high...

We always stay here and love it. Nedra does a great job of upkeep and it's great to be able to walk to breakfast and shopping!! The rooms are nice and the beds comfortable. There is a mini fridge as well. This room always suits our needs and the value is fair. Our favorite place in DC to stay!!!

The Main Street Motel is a true find in Door County. For about half the cost of a pricey resort, you can stay at this immaculate and cozy motel in the heart of Fish Creek and walk to shopping and dining.

Don't let the fact that Nedra, the welcoming and stylish owner, does not use the Internet for bookings fool you. This traditional motel has WIFI (although spotty at times), and everything else you need for a comfortable stay in Door County. The location is perfect: Near the Whistling Swan, the White Gull, Pelletier's Landing, Cooper's Corner, Bayside Tavern and a few other places.

We arrived on a Sunday and were given Room No. 1, knowing we would have to move on Monday because someone else had requested this charming room, which is tastefully decorated in shades of blue and lavender with a hydrangea motif. It was cozy but spacious, equipped with coffee maker and refrigerator. The bathroom was equally roomy. It's a great room, and you can watch the passing parade from the porch right in front.

After one night here, we moved to Room No. 3, just around the corner. We did not mind this room change, because it allowed us to see another theme room. Room No. 3 is the rooster motif room, and it has the feel of French Country skillfully blended with Early American, pale gold and black-and-white check. Very tasteful, not overdone at all. Having just come from a week in Paris in an equally charming but much smaller room, we enjoyed it.

Room No. 3 is in the rear of the base of this L-shaped building, and its location gets a fair amount of traffic from other guests. We did not find this bothersome at all, in fact, it was fun talking to other guests, all of whom seemed to be couples over 50.

The rooms include coffee makers and refrigerators; there is a general store that sells wine about a block or so down the street. We saw our fellow guests buying wine and deli items there. You can buy fudge and ice cream at nearby Founder's Square.

For those who like to shop, there are several clothing stores within walking distance, including one next door. Souvenir shops abound in the area, but you get that everywhere.

You can sit in one of the chairs or chaise lounges on the Cottage Row side of the motel. The grounds are very well maintained.

The only drawback was that my husband and I both found the mattress too firm. We are accustomed to a very soft mattress, and this minor detail will not bother most people. The warm and powerful shower - hands down the best I have encountered in a hotel - did a good job of taking my morning stiffness away.

The upsides outweigh any downsides here. You will not regret a stay at the Main Street Motel. Nedra is charming and her staff are friendly and upbeat.

Room Tip: Each room is a little different! Call early so you get the best selection.

We were welcomed very warmly.
Our bedroom (N°21) was spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated. All the windows had mosquito nets. There was a big fan on the ceiling and air conditioning. The bedroom had enough cupboards, a small fridge, two armchairs and a round table. The coffee provided in the bedroom was delicious and tasty.
2 chairs and a table were available for each room outside on the communal balcony.
Breakfast is not served in the motel but it is close to a grocery store and restaurant/breakfast room. We bought our breakfast at the grocery and had it in our room. The motel has no washing machine available.
We had a great time (5 nights) in this lovely motel. Highly recommended.

We traveled out this fall and went to a "fish boil" next door. Very clean, plenty of space in the room we had great service. Real family feeling. Close to downtown locations. Will stay again when in the area.

Kendra, the owner, and her family that run the place are terrific! Rooms are large, really nice, super clean and convenient. Excellent value. Best place in Fish Creek and so convenient. Although no wifi, we could catch other wifi signals. The drain was slow when we moved in and we didn't even have to tell the owner. She asked how long we were going to be in the room bc she wanted to fix it immediately.

For starters, once we met the owner, Nedra, we knew we were going to have a pleasant stay. She is beautiful inside and out and has some great stories. Our room (the rooster room, which was adorable) and the outside relaxation area was exactly that, relaxing. The room was clean and the service was very good also.

Nedra was very knowledgeable about the area and introduced me to my new favorite store, Blacksmith Clothing Co., where there was good service and great clothing, shoes and jewelry.

I highly recommend Main Street Motel - not only for the amazing owners, but for the clean and lovely rooms.
