The Ephraim Motel is tucked away in the quiet part of Ephraim (off the main road for peace and quiet). Julie and Scott Barnes, the owners, are dedicated to continuous renovations and additions, so this place has continued to get even better and better!
In 2010, the wrap-around deck has been added, for example. On an ongoing basis, they are consistently remodeling and making the place better and better! We love when we see this – because it really shows how much the owners and managers care about your stay, to make it a unique Door County experience. This 28 room inn is quite a find not only because of its nice accommodations and the wonderful town of Ephraim, but this place offers some excellent price points as well. Wow - we toured the Ephraim Motel with Julie.
First of all, the common areas and grounds around the place are very nice. For example, in the main building, there is a sitting room or lounge area with tables, lounge chairs and a fireplace. This is a very cozy room, and here The Ephraim Motel serves a continental breakfast in the morning that includes cereal, toast, English muffins, Danish, muffins and more. And of course, coffee, tea and milk too! This is a great place to gather, meet your friends before your day out, or just to relax. We like touches like this.
The Grounds and Outdoor Amenities!
The surrounding grounds and building are well maintained. Again mindful of your enjoyment, BBQ grills are on the peaceful grounds for your use, as well as picnic tables and a sand play area for children with swings and more – yes, children are welcomed (but no pets)! The pool and deck are inviting, with unbrellaed tables and lounge chairs.
We also wandered around the back and took a look at the outdoor heated pool and sun deck! I can tell you, you get an awful lot for your money at this place – we were impressed with that is offered and at such great rates! Check their website for current rates, but you will like what you see!
The Rooms: even in peak season, most are under $100!! Great Value!
We headed to check out the rooms. Again, they offer 28 total rooms, 3 with king beds, 13 with queens, and 12 with double beds. We like when places offer a variety of options like this – it makes it handy when traveling with a family, couples, or with friends. All rooms are carpeted, have cable TV, air conditioning, a fridge, microwave, and a full bath/shower. Nice decorative and homey touches like floral sprays, framed art prints on the walls, and other nice touches abound.
Room 103 – this is a cozy room with double beds, wrapped in floral printed quilts, all the amenities mentioned above, and a nice bathroom – with the sink outside the main bathroom – again, this is quite handy that the sink can be available while the bathroom is in use when people are getting ready in the morning to head out for the day.
Room 114 – offers a queen bed, again with all the amenities and nice touches. A couple of cushion chairs complete the room offering added comfort.
The rooms are well kept, clean, comfortable and guests really like them. Guests generally comment about the price and value, the cleanliness of the rooms, the location (right in the middle of Door County really, in a beautiful town) and the outdoor heated pool which is always in use when it is open (from mid-May through mid-October).
