“Best Value in Sister Bay, but Spartan!”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

In order to keep prices down, the Bluffside Motel has removed phones from the rooms. WIFI is also very limited to a few outside areas and rooms close to the office. The property is clean and the owner very accommodating. The mattress was surprisingly good for a budget property. On three unusually hot days in July, the very old and very loud room air conditioner did its job, but its noise made it difficult to sleep.

Reviewed 15 June 2012

This is a nice, clean place with friendly owners, allowed us to switch our dates around without any hassle. Location is great, pricing is very reasonable as this area can be ridiculously expensive. Sister Bay is our favorite area to stay, since more northern, less touristy, and also more of a "real town" feel as opposed to the more touristy towns to the south. Sister Bay Bowl actually has a great supper club type restaurant, and for casual food there is JJ's. Going north to the more remote beach areas is closeby for hiking, biking, birding, kayaking. Also, since your room wont break the bank it leaves money left over to stock your room with one of these 20 pound cherry pies from Seaquist Orchards (a few minutes away). Thank you Bluffside for providing a nice, quiet place at a great price!

This the perfect motel for the Door County traveler looking for nice clean general accomomdations at a resonable price. Close to Sister Bay restrurants. The cottage rooms are comfortable and well appointed.

Room Tip: Go with the cottage rooms if you can get them.

It doesn't look like very much from the website and the photos provided on the website, however, this is a decent place to stay if you're looking to save some money. The owners are very helpful if you want to get any restaurant or points of interest suggestions. The room was clean as well as the bathroom. The beds are pretty comfortable and the room includes air conditioner/heat, mini fridge and TV. You can also access wireless internet that they provide. Don't waste your money on a $150+/night place for just sleeping/showering - stay here and save that money to use on a nice dinner.
