The blend of modern and vintage is seamless, this place is such a gem of door county. The beauty is really in the details here, everything was so carefully thought out which made for such a hospitable experience, from the recognizable Keurig options, utility towel, fresh white bedding and a little glasses ledge by the bed. This place was so much better than other hotel or Airbnb options around the same price range. And it was squeaky clean!

Nice location on the edge of Algoma, it's walkable to the downtown area and places to eat. Room was recently renovated and very comfortable. Small refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave in the room.

My room had one queen size bed had a writing desk with chair and one additional chair, it was smaller than you'd find in newer hotels but had everything that I needed.

Motel has been recently renovated.

It felt clean walking in, no off or bad odor. The check in process was simple, not like a traditional motel with a front desk person, it was a contactless checkin process. The only thing I would recommend to the motel owners is to put some hand soap or hand sanitizer in the bathrooms. I did book a motel room at this motel in June.

My husband and I were making a short road trip, visiting family and friends. We were heading to Door County for a visit and needed just a one night stay, which was difficult being it was a weekend. I was so fortunate to find River Hills Motel, and even more delighted when we arrived. Total contactless registration, the room was spotless, recently updated yet keeping the charm of the era it was built. The rooms are not large, but as we were only there for the overnight it was perfect. The motel was fully booked, we did not hear any excessive noise. We would certainly stay again if we are in the area.

This retro motel was wonderful! Even the young adults traveling with us loved it and commented how Clean it was. Set in mature shade trees, it was perfect. Obviously recently updated nicely too! The amenities were great, loved the. No contact check in, smooth instantly answered my call when I had a question and very kind. The grass was beautifully manicured and the sweet little buckets of ice were thoughtful for guests on a hot day. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Nice up north motel. Our room was very nice, very clean, and the staff was very accommodating. We forgot a toothbrush and toothpaste and they had complimentary supplies in the lobby. That was a very nice surprise for a motel like this. We went to the wine festival and algoma and it was a very short drive or a little bit of a walk either way it was very centrally located because we also went up into door county and then down into Kewanee.

The owner of this hotel asked us to leave before we registered! I had texted earlier in the day and asked if we could get an early check-in, as we were going to arrive at 2. He responded "we should be able to check you in early at that property. If you don't receive your text message before 2 pm please visit our front desk once you arrive at the property". When we arrived there was a note on the office door with a number to call. I did call, said we were there but no one was in the office.
I sat back in the car to wait for him to come. When he arrived he immediately started in on my husband. When I got out of the car he said that we would be better if we went elsewhere, as he didn't need attitude. Happy to say we were able to find very good accommodations for two nights at another hotel without difficulty, and they were happy for the business. We have traveled, quite literally, all over the world and never experienced anything like this. Quite the contrary, most facilities go out of their way to make guests feel welcome! Quite unbelievable!

We last minute booked a stay after a 10 hour drive. They were very accommodating, friendly and communicative with check in/check out. The rooms were clean, stocked, and, were up to date with a cozy, cottage feel. I love the lights that were lit up, it made it feel inviting. The area/neighborhood itself was quiet although some guests were loud getting back into their rooms. The rooms were perfect for a place to lay our heads. In the early morning we got up and rode our bicycles into the local bakery for coffee and some bakery treats for breakfast. After we rode to watch the sunrise at the lighthouse then rode a little of the Ahnapee Trail which was gorgeous. We returned back to the room to freshen up with 30 minutes left before checkout and they had restocked our towels and clean the room for us while we were gone. I highly recommend this motel for a short stay.

This was our first time staying at River Hills Motel. We stayed in a Signature Double. Their Signature rooms are rooms that have recently been updated. The room was very clean with a new bed, and new Roku TV. The room was very cute, but the lighting was poor, with only a light on one side of the bed, and the ceiling light did not give off much light. The only update in the bathroom was a new shower head. I wish they would replace the toilets because they are really low to the ground.

We received a text message with a code to do contactless check in. That worked well, but I have to admit we missed being able to interact with the owner. All and all we were happy and would stay here again, but would probably try to get a room with 2 doubles and a deck.

We’ve stayed at the River Hills Motel several times in the past. The new owners have made some impressive upgrades to the property. Our room was fresh, bright and cozy. The new décor and amenities were lovely! The customer service was outstanding too. We very much appreciated the knowledgeable communication prior to our visit. It was comforting to know our reservation was right on track. The contactless check-in and check-out was seamless. We would recommend River Hills Motel and will definitely stay there again!
