Excellent experience. Easy to book online. Owner on site. Clean well furnished rooms. Cleaned room, fresh towels everyday (unlike places that just cleaned rooms of departing guests). Free breakfast daily. Large selection including hot foods eggs, breakfast sausage patties, Belgium waffles. Ample free parking near buildings. Balconies and patios with rockers, bistro sets and large deck with numerous tables. Nicely landscaped property. Excellent value. Highly recommend Scenic Shore Inn.

My husband and I have stayed in Algoma many times to visit nearby family. I have never stayed at this motel, and I can say that is has been a wonderful surprise. It is definitely the best place to stay in Algoma. I really can't say enough nice things about this motel.It is beautifully maintained and has all the amenities that a good motel should have. The owner is always available and is always pleasant. The beds are spotless and the bed covers are not only attractive but they are washable! The breakfast is very complete. We will definitely look forward to staying here again.

This was our second time staying at the Scenic Shore Inn, and certainly won't be our last! It's such a charming, quiet motel. Our second-floor room was spotlessly clean, with an incredible view of the lake. On the second day, the housekeeper surprised us by leaving a bottle of wine and an adorable picture frame as a gift for our honeymoon. Breakfast was delicious, with numerous options to choose from. The pool, sauna, and exercise room were especially appreciated during our winter stay. Prices are very reasonable, and the staff is always so friendly and helpful. Cannot recommend the Scenic Shore enough!!

I was excited by the reviews i had read but upon arrival in the middle of winter, i was placed in the "old" building with hot water heat that had a dial on the wall which did not work at all. I was not pleased with the accommodations at all. ADA shower and toilet which could better serve someone who really needs it.
So i stopped at the office prior to my second night stay and the lady upon hearing my comment about freezing all night gave me a room in the "new" building. Only 1 person was currently staying in this building a d why the man did not put me there from the start is puzzling. The new room was better and thougt with the ladies efforts, it would warrant another stay.

I admit, as a Lifetime Diamond Member with Hilton, I’m a hotel snob! Whenever I come across little towns that don’t have a name brand chain, I cringe. And “motels” yikes! BUT - I gotta give props to the Scenic Shores Inn. The two must haves when I’m desperate are clean AND plenty of outlets. Scenic Shores blew us away. Conveniently located for charter fishing trips out of Algoma. You can back the car right up to your room door. SUPER CLEAN; several trash cars (and recycling bin) in the room; AND 4 electric outlets & 2 USB ports behind the nightstand.

Although we didn’t use, we did check out the heated pool w/sauna; the back deck with picnic tables and a grill and multiple outdoor chairs. Friendly, helpful staff has coffee, tea etc in the lobby and lots of movie videos.

We already booked for another fishing trip in August AND it’s close enough to Door County that we’ll swing up there for a day too!

We recently stayed at the Scenic Shore Inn and really enjoyed our stay. Very clean and nice. Bob was wonderful and all the staff were so pleasant. We highly recommend staying here if you are traveling to Door County. Reasonably priced and a great value. We definitely will be coming back.

Very clean rooms, well maintained, friendly service, great continental breakfast. I recommend. I hiked in on the Ice Age Trail and this was very convenient. The motel also has a pool and an exercise room.

This property was one of the best motel experiences of my life. The staff was amazing! The room was spotless and spacious and the location was spot on. Their breakfast was almost restaurant quality. I would literally recommend this place to everyone.

Since my first 3-night visit here in 2009, I have stayed here on seven more 3-night visits. Owners Laurie, Bob & Kristina are still as kind as ever, always making me, my wife & my dogs feel very welcome! They have done some nice upgrades in the past 3 years, mainly carpeting & shower curtains. As always, the rooms at Scenic Shore are impeccable.

One thing I never knew---they will never recommend a restaurant that they haven't tried themselves (ie., by word of mouth.) For those who want to visit Door County, it is so much cheaper to stay here, and just drive to Door County for daily visits (or nightly restaurants.) Scenic Shore is only about 7 miles south of the Door County line!

The motel features 100% smoke free rooms, has free parking right outside your door, and there is a nice view of Lake Michigan right across the street. The air up here (NE Wisconsin) is the freshest that you will ever breath. There are restaurants all over the many towns nearby, ranging from budget to upscale, and everything in between. A very nice Piggly Wiggly grocery store is next door, and there is another very nice supermarket one mile into Algoma called Denny's.

On many occasions, daughter & co-owner, Kristina, shares some of her home made cakes with patrons---a very nice touch. This is a small motel featuring 13 rooms, so reservations are a must during the busy summer months. Algoma is a fishing capital in Wisconsin, so the fisherman enjoy staying here too. Situated on very nicely kept grounds of about 4-5 acres, Kristina can frequently be seen, keeping the lawn neatly manicured with her John Deere tractor mower. Pet friendly, kid friendly, family friendly, senior friendly & Nuclear Plant worker friendly! Just plain down right "friendly".

So, the next time you're up this way, stay in the cleanest motel you'll ever come across---well appointed rooms---comfortable Queen beds---slide open the window & enjoy that Lake Michigan breeze. Eat at one of the many nice eateries in Algoma or Kewaunee (about 10 miles south.) And, save some money with their decent rates! Always a pleasure................

The family that runs this hotel couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. We spent two weeknights at this hotel. The rooms were basic but comfortable. The bathroom fixtures and carpet were like new. Most importantly, everything was very clean. The table and chairs on the balcony allowed us to enjoy the cool breezes off the lake. The prices was reasonable - great value. There's plenty to do in Algoma, Kewaunee, and the rest of lower Door County without the crazy traffic and crowds seen north of Sturgeon Bay.

Room Tip: If you don't mind the stairs, the lake view is much better on the second floor.
