“Great value in Door County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Door County for under $100 a night doesnt happen easily. This motel is located right in Sister Bay on Route 42. It's very, very clean. The accommodations are simple, but perfect for a budget conscious traveller in a pricey area. The staff is friendly and welcoming too.

We stayed at the Village View for 2 nights in July. The entire property reminds me of Swiss Chalets. Very clean.. quiet..walking distance to restaurants/bars/shopping (limited). Great bang for your buck. Quite basic but everything you need for a limited stay. Ideal for older folks.. especially if you stay in the ground floor units.

I spent 3 nights at this hotel and was only there to sleep, but I enjoyed my stay. The staff was extra-friendly and helpful and they are the reason I would return. The rooms were clean, the fridge was helpful, the bed comfortable. I was in one of the basic rooms above the lobby and I think they other rooms/cabins they have would be even nicer (mine was in earshot of highway 42, the little road that runs in front of the hotel). A better continental breakfast would have made this rating "excellent!"

Room Tip: Room 9 (where i was) was a little noisey but also cheaper! The rooms in the other buildings are pro...

If you want to get away from the big chains motels drive to Sister Bay and stay at the Village View. The lady at the front was awesome we only stayed for 1 night and it was real short notice,we drove up and they gave us a room. The rooms are super clean and very comfortable. The lady that checked us in (owner?) was great plus she had a friend there that was a Iowa lady that taught school very close to where my wife and I are from , so it was very nice talking with her also...... Thanks Ladies !!!!!!! Dave,Becky and Jamie from Bondurant ,Iowa

This was our first trip to Door County. We like to travel around an area during the day but at night we like to walk to restaurants and pubs and leave the car in the parking lot. I didn't see any big hotels in Door County but Sister Bay seemed to meet our requirements. I am so happy that we chose Village View. There are only 18 units (we had #3). I requested a ground floor room since we were on a long trip and had a lot of luggage. The rooms are basic but very clean. We did not partake of the continental breakfast, but enjoyed the Sister Bay Cafe for eggs, etc. The Mission Grill is across the street (tapas, etc.). We also enjoyed a dinner at Grasses Grille (it happened to be the first night they were open). We had a small refrigerator which was fine. The library is very close. There is a sports bar across the street and a bowling alley/restaurant down the street. If you need a water view you can find it on the walk to the Sister Bay Cafe. Also the shops were adorable! Since other people have posted pictures of the grounds, I thought i would include a picture of the lilacs, which were in full bloom!

We stayed at the Village View thanks to other good reviews here on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Someone else had mentioned a tip about getting a room in the back for a quieter room - definitely pay the extra few bucks and you will not be disappointed! The bathrooms are updated and the room itself was clean, spacious, and offered a few extra touches that just made it feel homey. Each room has its own set of lawn chairs and tables, perfect for winding down outside in the evening. They also have the windows of the rooms open nearly always, which is fantastic for getting the fresh breezes flowing!
Our only complaint is, at least in the room we were at, the bed seems a little dated - it was a tad lumpy with the noisiest, squeakiest frame I've ever encountered. When I first sat on it to take off my shoes, I was afraid it might tumble apart! I learned it just squeaks and otherwise seemed stable enough.
Our restful night's sleep was interrupted however, by noisy neighbors having a girlfriend getaway both nights we stayed. While this is no fault to the motel, it did impact our sleep, having been woken up two nights in a row at 2:30am and 2:00am when the ladies were loud getting back in their room. Again, this is not a reflection on the staff nor the motel, but was an unfortunate factor in making this an excellent stay versus just a very good one.
That aside, I would recommend this motel to others and would happily stay here again! The owners are doing this property justice, keeping up a great little affordable motel!

Room Tip: pay a little extra for a quieter room in the back, away from the street.
