Very pleased. Beautiful scenery. Easy drive to get to most places. Front desk very helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Quiet and relaxing. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely stay here again.

We just got back from a 4 night stay and absolutely loved this place. The people at the front desk and in housekeeping were so incredibly friendly and helpful. It was very clean and quiet the entire time we stayed there. The sunsets were spectacular. The boys enjoyed the pool while I appreciated having a nice kitchen to cook all the wonderful things we found at the farmer's markets. Our only one complaint is that the internet service didn't work so well at times. Cell phone coverage is spotty but they let you make free long distance calls from your room. We hated to leave.

Our first impression of the one bedroom suite was good. We viewed the room and decided to book it for 5 days. The kitchen is nice and well equipped. A nice large counter top with 4 bar stools for dining. Not a large suite by any means. Bedroom had just enough room to walk around. Only one night stand due to small room. A nice LCD TV mounted in the living room and a smaller TV in the bedroom. Pull out couch in the living room was not very comfortable for sitting. Housekeeping was poor. Our first morning we noticed that there were corn flakes on the carpet under the dining counter and also on the living room floor. They were still there when we returned later that day after housekeeping had finished. We did not have cereal so obviously the room was not cleaned well before we got it. This prompted me to look under the bed where I found a discarded allergy spray bottle... also not ours. Blinds were very dusty. Looks like the minimum amount of cleaning is done. There is only one air conditioner and it blows directly on the couch in the living room. So loud on the lowest setting that you can not hear the TV. Because of the location of the air conditioner it does little to cool the bedroom. The info book in the room suggests closing windows and using the air conditioner in the evening because small gnats will get in... this it true and they do bite. So you either deal with the loud air conditioner or the gnats. The 2 pools are very nice and the hot tub is nice but a bit too hot (I'm guessing at least 105 degrees). Our balcony was just large enough for the two of us and not at all private. Overall I would say it is an OK place for one night, but I wish we had not booked for the full 5 days because I would have liked to try a different place while we were up here... and there is no refund if you cancel.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am so sorry to hear of your housekeeping concerns - that is not typical at our resort! We always like to follow through on that positive first impression and hope you will try Westwood Shores again the next time you are in Door County.

Westwood Shores had everything we were looking for. The hotel is U-shaped, and our room was sort of set back in the bend of the U, with the balcony tucked in the corner. I was worried the view would be bad, but as you can see from my picture, it was still quite nice. And the view from the living room window was completely wonderful. The place was very clean. There is an indoor pool, large hot tub, and outdoor pool. The pools are kind of small, from 3-5 feet deep, but adequate for the size of the property, and the indoor pool was nice and warm. The kitchen had a nice set of matching dishes, and they had the dish soap, dish towels, paper towels, etc, which we had brought with but didn't need!

We had a two bedroom suite. The master had a king bed, TV and DVD player, and around the corner had a large jacuzzi tub and sink. The toilet and small shower were behind a separate door. The 2nd bedroom was small with a queen bed, and the 2nd bathroom was off the hallway. Each of the bedrooms and the living room opened to the balcony, which was roomy with a table and 6 chairs to eat outdoors. The living room was great with a big TV over the gas fireplace. Everything was decorated quite tastefully with lighthouses, sailboats, etc. They also had dvd's and paddle boats to use.

The only bad thing was the drive each day to the upper part of the peninsula to do whatever we had planned for the day. But I didn't mind it, and given how much I enjoyed staying here, I'd probably stay here again for future trips to Door County.

Thanks for the positive review! Many people use us as a base and drive up and down the peninsula to see all that Door County as to offer. We find that our spacious, equipped suites are the best on the peninsula and that its fun to take the drive! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and will stay here for your next visit to Door County! Remember we honor 2013 rates for any 2014 reservations booked this year!

This was our first time in Door County and I have to say, "I am hooked". I had no idea how, lovely and quaint the towns are. We stayed in Sturgeon Bay at the Westwood Shores. We booked a 2 bedroom and 2 bath and the sofa had a pull out bed. Traveling with 2 teenagers can be a struggle and a fight for their own space. This room definitely had what we needed.
The hotel and pool were very clean and all the basic supplies for the kitchen were there. The people who worked there were friendly and helpful. We are definitely coming back.

We love condos and this one was another favorite. We had the end suite so we only saw water which was great but there was a big tree that blocked our view from a lot of the bay. You have to remember that this is a bay also so the waterfront is not as big as you would think. The sunsets were outstanding. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Two couples spent two nights in a two bedroom unit during the third week of July when the temperature was in the 90's. We were surprised to find that the second bedroom was not airconditioned. Made for a couple of uncomfortable nights that would have been intolerable had it not been for the ceiling fan.

Thanks for your review of our property. I am glad your enjoyed your stay! I am sorry that the second bedroom was uncomfortable during your stay. Typically the A/c unit in the living room and/or the bedroom is plenty of air flow to keep the room cool. We often rely on the breeze from the waterfront rather than the air conditioners - but during those few days in July when it went above 90 degrees, even in Door County, we had several comments about the lack of A/c in the 2nd bedroom. I am glad that the ceiling fan brought some relief and that overall you enjoyed the hotel and your stay in Door County!
