“Just the right spot to stay in Door County”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Rooms were very clean, the location was perfect as it was right on 42 and a easy ride to various vacation spots of Door County.,The motel was nicely landscaped with a very friendly staff. I would have given it a "5" if the continental breakfast had a bit more selection and hot food.

If you are looking for a quiet, squeaky clean, comfortable, affordable, well maintained "mom and pop" motel in Door County, look no further than the Ephraim Motel. Scott and Julie are extremely gracious hosts with a vast knowledge of the area and are ready with many helpful tips to make your vacation more enjoyable. There is even a small breakfast nook in their tastefully appointed office/lobby area where guests can help themselves to a continental breakfast. I haven't seen many small, independent motels that offer such a feature. In short, we found the Ephraim Motel to be the perfect place for my husband and I to vacation with my parents. I highly recommend this motel to anyone spending time in beautiful Door County.

On very short notice, we decided to go to Door County with our son's family for the 4th of July weekend. My initial inquiry call and the call to book the reservation were handled professionally by a friendly employee and by Julie, one of the owners. Julie went the extra mile to get us two rooms next to one another on the first floor. The property is immaculate inside and out. Beds were comfortable and I loved the quilts on the beds --- so Door-county like! The property is landscaped colorfully and the pool was sparkling. The only negative was the extra charge for a third person (three years old) in one of the rooms: I couldn't understand this because both rooms had two beds and three towels---there was nothing "extra" provided in the three-person room. However, this would not deter us from returning; and we hope to do so next year when back from Arizona!

We stayed at Ephraim Motel from June 27th to July 3rd. This was the best decison of our trip. Our room was clean, well kept and very comfortable. The motel itself was freshly painted and the landscaping was beautiful. There's a great heated pool and a very nice, inviting patio with tables and umbrellas to relax under. Breakfast wasn't fancy but definitely provided us with just what we needed to start our day. The motel is easy to get to and quiet. And most importantly, it felt safe. Julie and Scott, our hosts, chatted with us every morning at breakfast, asking what we had done the day before and what our plans were for the current day. They gave us great local tips on places to eat and things to see that weren't "tourist" driven. I see there was a bad review from the same time frame that we were visiting and can only assume that it was from some loud guests that were on the first floor and had a revolving group of people in and out. Thankfully they were only there a short time! This was NOT the norm for when we were there. I will recommend this motel to anyone and will be back to visit again.

Room Tip: We had a top floor corner room in the back. Great location.

We spent 3 nights here. It was a very relaxing vacation. The rooms were very clean. The pool and outside areas were also kept up very well. The continental breakfast was just enough to get you going in the morning. Scott and Julie are very pleasant people. It was nice talking with them, any time you saw them they would take time to chat. This is where we will stay whenever we go to Door County on future vacations.

We spent 6 nights of our vacation here. This was the closest thing we could find to a B & B but with more privacy. Scott and Julie are very helpful with ideas, directions and good conversation. Rooms and grounds are spotless and up-to-date, pool area is welcoming and the breakfast is just what you need to get your day started. I would recommend this place to friends and family and would stay here again myself.

Everything about our stay at the Ephraim was excellent. The room was comfortable and squeaky clean. It has a quiet and relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for vacationers to the area. Our favorite part of the stay at the Ephraim Motel were our personable hosts, Julie and Scott. They were genuinely happy to greet us each morning and took time to visit about our plans for the day. They are a wealth of information about the Door County area and had spot-on suggestions for venues to visit and places to dine. Thanks to the whole staff at the Ephraim Motel for making our trip so enjoyable and hassle- free!
