What more to say? SHEENA, the on-sight manager goes out of her way to answer any and all questions and is beyond helpful. Village-View is smack dab in the heart of Sister Bay; right next door is the bowling alley with, yes, bowling and great burgers; across the street is Husby's for late night musical entertainment; and shops abound.

I had a one bed room which was squeaky clean; bathroom in perfect order; flat screen color tv with many channels (sorry, it's not in HD which would be nice); mini-fridge in the room (no microwave, though; we always bring my own toaster anyway (sometimes even a toaster oven.....be sure to have it by a window with the window open or the smoke alarm may go off!!!). Sheets AND towels are 100% cotton!! Finally, a motel with an understanding of simple basics. Had a small table and two flat backed chairs; no upholstery, though. Be nice to have a lounger? (I can spend a good deal of time in my room; I don't care where in the world I am.....). Strong Wi-Fi signal with 5megs down but on an unsecured network...no password needed so anybody and their dog within range can log on with their smart phones to avoid data usage. Every room has a small a/c in it so if there are sounds one doesn't desire, simply close the windows and switch on the a/c. Yes, as is previously noted in another review rooms above the office are pretty much on Hwy 42 and across from Husby's bar which can get a bit rowdy at night, live music and all.....but we heard nothing when the windows were shut. Never heard another guest in the motel or even a car in the parking lot for that matter. (The only reason the room isn't getting 5 bubbles is due to their compact size; more than enough to NOT feel cramped, though. We never did).

Housekeeping is thorough and friendly; more than happy to provide extra towels if needed. Soap and shampoo provided by the facility. If you need/want an anti slip thingy for the bath, just ask and it magically appears. Grounds are immaculate and full of colorful flowers and super green grass; outside chairs for sitting.

Coffee and rolls in the morning.....need to go out for real food and there are a lot of places to go to get just that.

It's a great place staffed by great, friendly people. We'll be back and that's for sure. Thanks Sheena and staff.

Room Tip: The earlier one books, the more choices one is given. Simply phone and ask and they'll be open...

No frills, Simple, Clean Motel room. Enjoyed it. little noisy next to road. (4th of july though busy) closed the window turn on the air never had a problem with the noise after that. Walking distance for food and drink could not beat the location. Close to Sister Bay Marina where we had a slip for the boat. Price was great! Might simply stay there again! Good value for a simple place to sleep and take a shower. clean & simple

Room Tip: No frills, very simple, basic - nothing special but clean

We found it very clean and comfortable. Basic necessities. Owners were friendly and welcoming. There on holiday weekend, so it was very busy, we were close enough to everything in Sister Bay to walk. Delightful!

Stayed two nights at Village View in Sister bay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. There are a number of food and drink options in walking distance.The grounds are well taken of care of and the people working here are very nice. They even let us borrow a corkscrew and wine glasses, for that Door County cherry wine.When I go back to Door County this will be my first choice to stay,rates are good and they offer coffee and pastries in the morning.And they have a ice machine.

My wife and I recently spent some time in the Door County area. We stayed at the Village View Motel that is in downtown Sister Bay,Wi.. We have stayed here before and like it because it is within walking distance of several eateries and shops. Also close to the marina/park area. The motel is clean and well kept. There are no swimming pools and the like, but that works for us as we like to play golf and walk the different towns, etc. The owners are very nice and the staff friendly. We'll stay here in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms to the South or rear of the property are quieter as the motel is on Hwy. 42.

The Village View Inn was very clean, and the staff was very friendly! Nice customer service over the phone. Within walking distance of many of the Sister Bay attractions. The TV was easy to use! Exactly what I was looking for!

If you're looking for an afforable place to stay then Villiage View is it! It's not luxurious accomodations but it is clean which I appreciate immensely. It is close to everything which is good and bad- easy to walk to but traffic and bar noise made it difficult to sleep (this is coming from someone who lives in the countyside of NW OH- quiet!). The people in the office were very helpful in choosing activities and restaurants!
