“Peaceful”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

One stay and we were hooked. We've stayed many times each year since our first visit in 2006.
We always book our next stay upon departure. The rooms are always spotlessly clean; the staff is friendly and attentive; the views beautiful ; always peaceful.

Room Tip: Premier Suites get you closer to the water, but every suite here has a great view.

Stayed one night on friend's recommendation. Glad we did as we had a good view of the bay (from an angle). Full kitchen, large living room with fireplace, separate king bedroom and whirlpool bath. Clean with nice decor and very quiet. End of season rate made it a great value. Good location just north of town.

Room Tip: Stayed in 312, top floor, almost at the north end. Private balcony with clear, angled view of bay...

My wife and I are from Chicago and this was our first Door County area stay. We stayed here during Labor Day weekend as a last minute getaway. It's just really nice and quiet which was nice. It's right on the bay so you can get in some nice sunsets. We will stay here again.

This rental was great! Beautiful views from our balcony in 211, clean rooms, nice pool. The only things that would have made it a Perfect 10 are a good night's sleep and a restaurant on the premises. Every time I turned in bed the plastic mattress cover work me and my husband up. It was actually making a crunchy noise. I understand the need for a mattress cover, but there must be some out there that don't make noise. Everything else about the place was terrific.

Thanks for your comments regarding your stay at Westwood Shores. I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with the mattress cover. We just purchased brand new ones for all of our beds and specifically purchased the upgraded fabric to avoid this situation. The covers are definitely not plastic. We appreciate your feedback and will monitor this situation because obviously a good nights sleep is important during your hotel stay! Otherwise we were happy to hear you enjoyed your room, the view and our pool. We hope you return again soon!

This was our first stay at Westwood Shores and we were not disappointed. All of the rooms have full water views of Green Bay, all have balconies, and full kitchens. The property sits with in a few feet of the water between large residential properties. So it is very quiet, insulated from highway noise or other hotels.

Each unit has a separate bedroom, separate bathroom with jacuzzi tub, separate living area with full sized kitchen. The unit was in excellent condition, and was extremely well maintained.

The property faces the west so the sunsets are just spectacular !

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay in Door County I would highly recommend this property. Their pricing is not inexpensive but it is an exceptional property.

Room Tip: All rooms have full water views.

I wish that I could leave a bad review, but we never got past the front desk. We had made reservations for a Premiere Suite weeks in advance. This was going to be a special weekend for my husband and myself. Arrived at about 4 pm...a little after their official check in time. The woman at the front desk confirmed out reservation and pointed out on the map, the 2nd best room the offer. Not the premiere suite we had reserved and paid for. I told her to check again because we had specifically reserved then top floor end room...the Premiere suite. We showed her our reservation confirmation and she acknowledged it very clearly stated PREMIERE. She began clicking away at her computer, obvisously flustered and having no explanation...or so she said. Phones rang, calls were taken and we continued to stand there, waiting for a resolution for our missing room.

She then stated that they didn't have any Premiere Suites left and that all they had was the one one floor down and "near" the end....basically a spare broom closet. I asked her to get the manager on the phone, which she did. After being informed by the front desk clerk what was going on, the first thing she (the absent manager) asked me when I took the phone was, "how can I help you". Well it was clear that it was up to her as to how this should be rectified. Why must I tell a manager how to help me. I explained to her again that our reservations were made weeks ago, and that now we have no room. Her explanation was that reservations are moved around all the time!!!
Reservations MOVED!!??!! Whats the point of making a reservation if you can just walk in off the street and get any room you like???

Meanwhile, a young woman was asking questions about her room and how they could pay for it. I glanced at the map that was given to her and what do you know, she had our room. Apparently they strolled in and they gave that couple the very best room they have.....OURS!!!

My discussion with the manager got no where, and the clerk not the least bit helpful so we just turned around and left.

Don't stay here. The hotel does not honor reservations!!
The Management lacks either the authority or caring to make errors right.
Go someplace else.
For the almost $300 per night price tag, you could get alot better service even without a reservation.

We are surprised that you have left such a bad review since you never got past the front desk. Your review is very unfair and as you can see by the other reviews your experience was certainly not typical for a stay at Westwood Shores. I apologize that there was an error in the reservation process and there was not a premiere suite awaiting you upon your arrival - as we explained that was an error on our part. It is unfortunate that you did not even look at the suite you were offered, as it is our best 'standard" unit and very close to the water. Your description of the unit is unfair since you did not even take the time to take a look. The desk clerk was flustered as you described, but also extremely apologetic and immediately called a manager. She apologized, offered some other options and you hung up and stormed out of the property. We would have loved to have made the situation right but were really never given that opportunity. Your review is full of misinformation from the rates quoted to the service you received, we have asked to have it removed from TripAdvisor however, at this point we believe our other reviews show our true colors and do not want to continue an online battle - we are very sorry you were unsatisfied.
