I visited in the "quiet" season and stayed one Saturday night. My room was clean and comfortable and the entire place was charmingly decorated. The front desk staff were very helpful, although I did have to track someone down in the morning to give me a receipt for my stay (the staff is small and it seems the front desk doubles as housekeeping).
In the room, I had difficulty working the heating/air conditioning unit, but fortunately, they have the whole motel wired so that the staffers can control each room from the front desk. I called to say I was having troubles, and they fixed it for me remotely right away.
There were some guys staying just down the hall from me who were a little noisy, but I found that if I left the fan on in the room all night to create some white noise, it also drown out the noise coming from down the hall. Once I figure that out, I slept soundly and the beds/pillows were comfortable although the bed was a little softer than I'm used to.
I also appreciated that in the rooms (as well as throughout the motel) there were both trash and recycling receptacles. It's great to see they're making an effort toward a "green" atmosphere. It's rare in my travel experience to find a motel that even makes an attempt at recycling. They also use "real" silverware, plates and cups in the continental breakfast rather than relying on styrofoam and plastic.
Great place to stay at a more than reasonable cost. If I come through Sturgeon Bay again, this will be the first place I look for a room!
