Affordable lodging in Door County during the summer season is almost impossible to get, especially at the last minute. Most places either cost hundreds of dollars, require 2 or 3-night stays, or both. "No vacancy" signs are everywhere. So imagine our happiness when we came across this cozy retro family-owned motel, Rooms were available, the price was right, and there were no multiple-stay requirements. A young couple bought the motel about a year ago and

We are so glad we picked this motel for us + our 2 toddlers. It was the perfect landing spot for our time in Door County. The price was great (book direct!) and we loved the hotel. Booking was a cinch, and communication with the owner was great. After driving through the crowded towns to the South, we were happy to arrive in Ellison Bay, where things are much more calm + old-school. The motel's exterior was cozy, and we were excited for the public beach + playground across the street. As we entered the motel, we were pleased to see the 70's style lobby, with modern twists. It was so nostalgic! The owner was there to greet us + she gave us great dinner recommendations. Opening our door to our Bay View room, we instantly noticed how CLEAN it was. It was truly spotless. And everything in the room was in great condition. It just felt so comforting. The room was also HUGE! We did miss having a little fridge in the room, but our cooler and the hotel's ice did solve that issue. Our highlight meal from the trip was definitely the attached German restaurant. The beach across the street was perfect for us. We spent a couple evenings there, watching the sunset + playing on the playground. There is a little grocery store in town + a bar/grill. We enjoyed them both! . The owner went out of her way to make our 5-year anniversary special with a bouquet of locally grown flowers. When we visit again, it'll be a no-brainer to stay at Hillside Inn again.

Very clean, comfortable and quiet. Convenient location, exactly what we were looking for. Owners are very helpful with questions about things to do in the area and dining options. We stayed for four nights and would definitely stay here again. Great experience!

We enjoyed the homey feel of this family-run hotel. Very clean and comfortable. Walk to the water across the road out front. Parking outside the windows. In-house restaurant. Helpful, friendly service. It felt safe. I'd stay there again!

Wandering through Door County and found this excellent retro mom and pop motel. Love to see these old motels used. Young couple do it all. Everything was clean, beds comfortable, very reasonably priced and convenient to ferry. Highly recommend these folks.

What a lovely old-fashioned motel. We liked Room 17, with a view of the bay and a king bed. The room was super clean and although it is dated (part of its charm), it is comfortable and quiet. Super friendly owners. Try the restaurant connected to the motel called Hugel Haus—we had great drinks and hot pretzels at the bar.
