Nice rental. Decently appointed kitchen, although no gourmet cooking to be done. 😉Right on the water, great view, lovely sunsets! Disappointed the outdoor pool was closed even though weather was still warm. Roomy 2 BR unit. Couch could use some throw pillows.

We rented a 2 bed/2bath condo here at Westwood Shores for our Girls' Trip. It was very nice. The condo was clean, kitchen area was well stocked and the balcony overlooking the yard, outside pool and the water was wonderful. They have great sunsets here!! The indoor pool and hot tub area is clean and well maintained. The unit was a good and the service was great. The location was good and it was very easy to get around. I would definitely come back!!

We paid a hefty premium for our owner-owned apartment but found it quite clammy. We felt uncomfortable during our entire stay. The carpet had a moist feel and the bathroom floors were sticky, though the latter were cleaned after our first night. No luck with that dated carpet, though. We wanted a place with a beautiful view but but our first floor unit was in a corner and the balcony was claustrophobic with a minimal view of the bay. This place was just not for this senior couple.

Thank you for your comments. This is certainly not typical of the the "beautiful views" that most of our customers have written about. All of the rooms have a view of the water so we certainly apologize if you did not care for your room. We appreciate all guest feedback and hope you would consider then a different room for the future. Come again.

Beautiful view of the Bay from our room! We came to Door County on a whim with no reservation and were happy we were able to get a suite here. Luke at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The suite was nice and clean, with a full kitchen and the shower had plenty of water pressure and hot water. I usually exercise very early in the morning, so I was disappointed that the gym doesn't open until 8 am. But I didn't ask if I could use it earlier, so maybe they would've let me. Free coffee in the lobby. Quiet, peaceful location.

We booked 2 bedroom 2 bathroom for 4 adults and 2 kids We had plenty of room and loved the balcony that had plenty of tables and chairs for relaxing and enjoying our meals as a family Kids slept on pull out sofa Staff were very friendly and accommodating I liked how each morning you just leave your towels outside the door and they replace them (pool towels, shower towels, toilet paper, paper towels, etc 2 pools were nice the out door pool was warmer than I thought because they cover it at night to keep it warm Indoor pool had a large hot tub and sauna Kitchen is a little small but has everything we needed with full oven, microwave, coffee pot, fridge, sink, and dishwasher There isn’t a beach area at the resort this was the only part that would’ve made it even better but plenty of beaches in the area to enjoy Jacksonport is 15 mins away and very nice beach with large sandbar to play on in the water We would stay here again for sure!!

Picked the right spot for our 1st visit to Door County. Our two bedroom suite was a great space with two teenagers. Plenty of room with two bathrooms, stocked kitchen, kitchen bar, separate table for doing jigsaw puzzles and a roomy balcony looking out over the Sturgeon Bay. Wonderful and knowledgeable staff. Resort is small enough to make us feel special. Loved and used the two pools and hot tub each day. View of sunset is a great way to end the day. Shower pressure on king suite side weak. Would recommend providing some oversized coffee mugs and a tray to carry items from the kitchen to the balcony. Highly recommend and would stay again.

We had a reservation for 3 nights from July 23rd, 2022, to July 26th, 2022 in a premium 2-bedroom suite. I called the front desk to request a room on the 2nd floor or higher if any were available. Bryan (the manager over there ) answered the phone: The first thing I was told was that he doesn't understand my English (an great way to greet and insult the customer right away). After Bryan started to understand my English, (without any change in the way I was speaking), he told me that most people like to stay on the first floor. Without waiting for a reply, he then proceeded to say that the hotel is completely booked and I can cancel my reservation at any time and 5 people will "jump" to take my spot. He basically told me to be happy with what I had or leave. Also, Bryan said that we made a reservation for 2 people, but since the 3 of us are coming we have to pay $15 more per night, and sent us a confirmation with the new, higher, amount right away. This room accommodates up to 6 people, so we didn't even pay attention to the number of people in our booking. Even if we had, online booking (directly from the hotel) doesn't reflect the difference in price for 2, 3, or 6 people. The price was the same no matter the number of people. When I called back and let Bryan know about that, he said that if I am really worried about those $45, he can waive the $45. Yes, I am really worried about those $45, I work hard to make every penny and I don't want to pay extra just because the service desk representative wants to charge me more. Allthourghout, his tone and attitude were highly unprofessional and dismissive. He seemed uninterested in listening to me and didn't treat me as a paying customer. I complained to the management about the terrible experience I had with Bryan. They offered me a mild appology, making sure to mention that they have many good customer reviews. Ok, then I just want to let you know, that according to the review from me, it is not! This is why when I tried to tell him that he is being rude and I didn't like the way he was talking to me, he refused to apologize. Instead, he said that "everybody likes him," and that I should instead accept it and deal with his tone and attitude. Also, I didn't get an explanation for why the manager from your resort was trying to get an extra$45??? In conclusion, even though it was a big inconvenience for my family, we had to cancel the reservation and change our vacation plans. Never again will I stay at this place. But, I am sure that neither Bryan nor his management cares about it. They have "5 more people who will jump into my spot" I just hope that Bryan will read my review, and will think before insulting other people.

We are sorry for the misunderstanding regarding your cancelled reservation. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service at Westwood Shores. We apologize for not meeting your expectations during our correspondence with you this time. As you know from your previous experiences staying with us that this is not typical. Our room rates are based on double occupancy (two guests) and there is a charge of $15 per night for any additional persons over 13 and is based on the data that is entered when the on-line customers enter the number of people staying in the suite. We agreed to waive the extra person charge prior to your cancelation. We value each and every one of our guests and hope you find accommodations during future travels that match your expectations.

We stayed 4 nights in late June and had a wonderful experience. The views were great and the staff friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. Daily housekeeping was not available but wasn't needed. The system for swapping towels and linens was easy and seamless. Any request or need was quickly addressed.

It is such a beautiful view of the lake. Everyone on staff was extremely helpful and kind. Nice amenities. We loved that they had both an indoor and outdoor pool since you can never be sure of the weather. We enjoyed our stay and we will definitely book here again!
