“Holy Cow!”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

We ended up here as a fluke, when we wanted to extend our stay in Door County and could not stay where we were.

It's a little hard to find, but so worth getting lost! This is a condo place not timeshare, where owners can rent their condos out when they are not there.

The building was immaculate and beautiful. The check in was easy. The Condo was exceptional. We had a 2 room suite, which had a king size bed, jacuzzi bath and shower in the Master Bedroom.. A tv with DVD player. A full size balcony, where you could eat outside at a large table with chairs.

The Kitchen had a big refrigerator, microwave, oven and stove. Toaster, blender, coffee maker and all the pots and pans, etc that we needed. (There is an economy foods 5 minutes away by car.). There was a bar to eat on as well as a dining table.

The living room, had a huge tv, with DVD player. ( you can borrow DVDs from the front desk.). A comfy couch, chairs, a gas fireplace, and air conditioning.

There was also a second bedroom with a queen size bed, tv etc. We were stunned at what we got for pur money, and would happily return there in the future!

There is no restaurant on site, you will need a car, but it took us maybe 10 minutes to find food.

The living room had a large couch, and chairs

Westwood Shores was just as pictured in their online brochures. We got the room we asked for, towards the end of the third floor and away from elevators and noise. The balcony was spacious enough for the two of us, and could have easily seated a couple more. We had a single bedroom with of course the king size bed. The kitchen was clean and well equipped. Housekeeping was taken care of early and they did a great job. One thing, we wished the couches and chairs were a bit softer, they were a bit stiff and uncomfortable. We enjoyed using the grill one night, and having the kitchen to prepare breakfast saved us time and money. We truly enjoyed the wonderful views and quiet setting. We hope to take our grandkids some day!

Room Tip: If you're a middle aged couple, you may want to ask for the quiet roomson 3rd floor, at the ends...

Stayed at Westwood Shore from Aug 4 – Aug 7, 2010. Very well maintained grounds, pools, and room. All the room appliances were new and clean, silverware look brandnew. The furnishings looked relatively new and were clean and neat. Best of all, it was quiet, never heard a sound during the night. The quiet could possibily be atributed to the room design with the bath and kitchen providing a buffer between the living and bedroom areas and the hallway. I would certainly stay at Westwood again and would recommend to friends or family.

Door County is fortunate to have a number of fine restaurants. Westwood Shores is located less than five minutes from Sturgeon Bay where you will find over 40 restaurants ranging from fast food to fine dining. We also have several delivery options available to us. Every suite is has a fully equipped kitchen and we are just five minutes frm three different grocery stores. Our complimentary property wide high speed internet service is something that many of our guests utilize. We are sorry you had problems getting a signal during your stay. We provide free local and long distance calls for guests who are unable to get a cell phone signal. We pride ourselves on excellent guest service and would look forward to an opportunity to have you as a guest once again.

One of the worst experience ever in vacation travel: There is not a decent restaurant in the complex or within 50 miles of the resort

Bring your own food cook, your own if you have some

WIFI service did not work: There is NO reception for cell phone

Personnel in front desk were unfriendly or incompetent, coud not wait to leave
Front desk personnel offered my wife a relocation if she wanted it

We just returned from a 2 night stay and we can't understand how this hotel received so many high ratings on Tripadvisor. We booked a 1 bedroom suite. The greatest aspect of this hotel is that all rooms face the bay and the view is spectacular. However, the hotel overall was not. For starters the hallways are dimly light and very institutional like. Upon entering our room for the first time I found numerous crumbs on the kitchen floor (yuck!). We were exicted to see the view so we immediately went out on the balcony. The view didn't make up for the thousands of dead bugs stuck in the patio door track and on the outside of the walls surrounding the patio door. Yes, it's summer but this could have easily been cleaned up with a broom or shop vac. To top it off to enter the balcony you had to duck or the patio door weatherstripping that had partially fallen off would hit you in the head.

If you decide to stay here bring your own pool towels because those provided in the room are a joke. The towel didn't even cover a 7 year old and was extremely thin & worn. Also bring your own hair dryer. The one we had in our room was so weak I'm not sure it would even be able to blow out a birthday cake candle. On the upside, the staff is very friendly and the bathroom towels (not to be confused with the pool towels) were quite nice.

Room Tip: All rooms face the bay so it doesn't matter which room you book
