Summer time could be great. Awesome views. Rooms were clean. the corridors were just ok. The bar is the only place to eat, not family friendly. but u can take out. No cell coverage. my GPS could not find this place, so took a bit of driving around to get there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Try another hotel--not a resort but Bates Motel"
TV didn't work in king suite which we paid for, transferred to a room with full size bed and smaller and musty smelling. Not a good experience at all. Would not recommend for anyone. 70's furniture scrapped up and old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was very surprised at the condition of the room...very nice!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok at best"
Like the title states ok at best. The room was large but the bed was well worn and the window was missing a screen. The bar on site made parking horrible and drinks were pricey and service was lacking. We stayed in sister bay the next night for almost 40.00 cheaper and way better room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really don't understand why the rating is low. For an older hotel/resort complex, my family and I thought it was okay. The staff was friendly and the view was amazing. The beds were as comfortable as any other hotel in this price range. If you want a pool or hot tub hotel, keep on looking. But, if you just need a few comfort features, this is a great […] choice. :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Watersports and Private Beach"
What a great find. Stary there and enjoy Green Bay with a tiki bar close by. Great people...a fabulous find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place with a good price"
I had a good experience here considering this location has a great value based price point. One thing to note: If you are expecting more than 4 people, at the last minute I had some out of town/country family, coming along. It may be a hit or miss with the standard room, although the description says "can accomodate up to 6". All in all, this is a […] great place if you want to just get away disconnect from technology and get back to nature. One thing to note, if you do want to connect to wi-fi or cell service, it is very spotty in this area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not good choice"
The hotel seemed to have permanent renters that were not a problem but certainly not what you look for in a vacation stay. Room was really dated and not well cared for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No cell phone service, shabby room and service."
Overall the stay was NOT A pleasant experience. The bathroom was in a very bad condition. No action was taken even after we reported the issue. The motel itself is in a remote area where cell phone service wasn't there. Our request to shift us to a better room was ignored, and we were bluntly told there were no rooms left. The walls were very think […] and we could hear the people in the next room. We payed considerable amount of money for the whole stay for such a shabby room and service and we REGRET that we chose this motel. We had to heavily depend on the free WiFi which was somewhat slow. We were not given accurate information by the motel staff and which costed us extra money on top of the original amount. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a resort, but still nice and clean..."
My fiance and I went to Door County for a long weekend trip. Our room was clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is on a lake, and I saw that they had jet skis and other water devices for rent. There is also a bar on the premises. I'm still not quite sure why it's called a resort, though. This place was like a clean, motel/hotel with […] a much more competent and friendly staff than those places normally have. It was conveniently located near the downtown area. Overall, good experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just okay - but the carpeting smelled moldy - ew"
Very quaint and older style. The covers were encased in duvets which was nice and the beds were clean. But when you opened the door, you were struck in the face by a very unpleasant smell, like moldy carpeting or moldy air conditioning. The bathroom really needs updating. The other guests were family types and very quiet. The staff need more lessons […] on upping their customer service skills so to make you feel more welcome. The beach, restaurant/bar and grounds were small and included a volleyball area, fire pits, lawn chairs and a nice sandy beach . On the plus side, there were free kayaks to use and floatation vests but they no longer rent out bikes to use. Another plus was you could walk to Potawatomie state park, and hike in about 2 miles and back with a stop at the campground store for refreshments. You can rent bikes at the campground store and gets a helmut included too. beautiful place to bike and just slightly hilly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was one of the worst stays I have ever experienced. There were ants all over the room, no soap/shampoo in the bathroom, the A/C stopped working in the middle of the night, and the shower head was missing. My stay lasted just 12 hours, before I demanded a full refund,.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for a family vacation"
The hotel was exactly as we expected...comfortable room with a small beach on Green Bay. The staff were great and very friendly. Breakfasts were fine with a good selection of primarily carbohydrates. Restaurant was busy at night with a good "local" atmosphere. Hope to stay there again next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is not a 5 star luxury resort, but Beach Harbor is a great place if relaxation and fun is what you are looking for. There is a beach and boats and plenty to do for kids and adults alike. Located in a beautiful area right next to Pottawatomi State Park. Would definitely return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was supposed to have 2 beds but did not. Front desk claimed it was Hotels.com's fault. Room was clean but poorly maintained. Very nice location on the water but overall the motel was disappointing. If you've been there before and liked it, great. Otherwise don't bother.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super friendly staff"
Everyone there couldn't have been nicer. The beds were clean and our air conditioner worked, as opposed to the rest of our group staying in the room next door. In 100 degree heat, you want the AC to work. The staff was very friendly and the drinks were a great value. I just had a problem with the room, really. And the continental breakfast could have […] been nicer I think. We had a chair in the room that was so stained, I didn't want to sit on it or even put any clothes down on it. The curtains were not long enough to cover the window, so the light came in in the morning. The windowless bathroom had an air vent that didn't work, and the lighting was so dim I had to come out of the room to put my contacts in. Also the water pressure in the showere was TERRIBLE. Luckily we were only there one night, but had we been staying longer I would have been at the desk trying to switch rooms. However, as I said, the staff was really really nice and helpful with other things, like renting a boat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach Harbor Resort-price is right"
Although the resort is not a newer or fancy resort the room was very spacious and nice. It was also nice having a bar/restaurant on the property. The staff educated us on the many sights to see, and helped us to get the most out of our time there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great room for the price. We would definitely go back in the futureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach Harbor Resort, Sturgeon Bay, WI"
This is a very quaint place. It is right on Sturgeon Bay, has a restaurant and bar adjacent to the motel. There are nightly specials at the restaurant and all food is very good. The yard is huge, with many lawn chairs to enjoy the water. Small beach for swimming. Rent jet skis. Adjacent to the Ice Age hiking trail and near a state park. Very quiet […] area.

"Laid Back, Enjoyable, Relaxing"
08/13/14 StingraysKill Mankato
We will return. The staff was friendly and accommodating, our pets were welcome, and we met another nice family from MN to chat with. The free kayaks and paddle boards were a bonus and we spent a lot of time in the water. We thought the amenities were just right, nothing too extravagant but not run down either. For a family business, I think they do a great job maintaining the resort and helping guests feel at home. The prices are right; where can you stay in Door County at peak season for $99 nightly and with a nice beach? Try to find it and let us know. Also you can rent a jet ski right there for $75 hourly or a 16' Bayliner boat for 100 for 2 hours. Those are excellent prices for water rentals. The location is close to dining and shopping in Sturgeon Bay, the largest town in the county and only about 30-40 miles drive north to other more costly and isolated destinations. Stay here and take day trips to Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, and Sister Bay etc. We stayed Tues - Fri in mid-July and it was quiet so I can't comment on the weekend but imagine it would be noisier with the bar/restaurant on site. They have a nice campfire by the beach with s'more ingredients provided. And the fish boil is very reasonably priced at 16.95 per adult.
08/04/14 Kim C Plainfield, Illinois, United States
When we pulled in it looked like a very under maintained apartment complex, stuff everywhere outside the patio doors of the rooms, very under maintained. The room we went ahead and took cause we were exhausted was very dated, the fridge was constantly making noise, carpet VERY worn and the bedding looked like something from a flea market. The noise level from outside the room was intolerable so my husband went to complain. While my husband was gone there was a knock at the door, I was laying down so it took me a few to get up. By time I got to the door someone was opening it up..NOT my husband but the owner! She stated she didn't know I checked in than back tracked and said she thought we checked out (within 2 min of my husband being gone) Needless to say we did check out, got our refund but they kept 25.00 as a cleaning fee! REALLY?!?!? Horrible service.
"Never got past making a reservation"
07/27/14 Tireguy7 Davenport, Iowa
I called to make reservations for the Labor Day holiday. During the initial conversation I found they have no rooms overlooking the water. Needed to check with the wife. We decided to give it a try since it is on the water. After giving the dates she said its their policy to only take 3 night reservations during the holidays and I was needing 2 nights. I know other resorts/hotels try this but they can be flexible. I asked the receptionist to waive this as I was coming from 6 hours away and I couldn't get the Friday off. She did get with a manager and called me a couple hours later explaining the manager would not waive the 3 day minimum. I think it's called GREED. The receptionist said they would love to have us any other time. I declined! Why would I want to give them my business when they didn't want it Labor Day weekend.
"good place to stay in sturgeon bay"
07/21/14 ejpandai Madison, Wisconsin
Fast & easy check in. King suite was roomy & clean. Appreciated the fridge & cable tv. We had an odd numbered room, with a view of the parking lot. There is a restaurant/bar on the property which always seemed busy but not my kind of food so we did not eat there. Beach is quite small, maybe 20 feet long, so it seems crowded if more that 2 groups of people are there. we dragged beach chairs across the lawn which was fine. Location is away from downtown, but within walking distance to potowatomi state park.
"Location, location, location"
We had a king bed room that was basic, but clean and comfortable. The price was very reasonable for the area. There was free continental breakfast which was, again, basic but the children there seemed to really enjoy it. The value of this place is in the location. It sits in a beautiful spot on the bay, just down the road from Potawatomi state park. Some of the rooms have doors that open out to a courtyard with picnic benches, which is nice if you have kids and dogs. They have a sand volleyball court, a sand bar and patio areas with no shortage of chairs. You can rent boats but they have little rafts that are free to use. Cyclists can rent bikes at the state park. There is a bar and restaurant on the premises with quite a bit of local traffic. I saw fishermen sail up to the dock to go there. The food is pretty good and we didn't experience the service issues some people have reported.The restaurant features a fish boil on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday that's worth the trip by itself. The bar has live bands and gets a little noisy on weekend nights. The crowd can also make finding a parking space a little challenging. If you're looking for a romantic getaway, by all means go elsewhere. If you have an active lifestyle and like kids and dogs you'll get great value for dollar. Use the money you save on the room to rent a jet ski!
"Nice spot, good value"
07/05/14 Mark K Round Lake Beach, Illinois
We had a king bed room which was dated but clean. There was a microwave, mini-fridge and ample towels. The mattress was comfortable and the bedding clean. The tv was old but had cable. A continental breakfast each morning was included. Any staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. We were touring the area by motorcycle so we didn't spend much time at the resort during the day but there was a small beach and boats and jet skis for rent. There was also a fire ring near the water which was a great spot at night. The site include a bar and grill (Waterfront Mary's, see separate review) with indoor or outdoor seating. If you want a five star resort this is not it, but if you want a good clean room at a very nice location at a fair price this will do nicely. Especially if you plan to spend your days away from the resort anyway (fishing, motorcycling, boating, etc.).
"Beach Harbor is one of our favorite places on earth"
06/23/14 MongoDingo Green Bay, Wisconsin
From our home base in Green Bay, Wis., we've travel a fair amount in the U.S., Asia, Europe and Latin America and loved it all. Nonetheless, one of favorite places on earth is practically in our own backyard -- just a 45 minute drive up the coast of Green Bay to Beach Harbor Resort on the Sturgeon Bay Shipping Channel. At least once a year we spend family time there by renting the Beach House, but my wife and I often drive up just for lunch or dinner at Waterfront Mary's. Great place to sit and relax, watching the activity on the Channel.
04/03/14 Mmmjmk Cadiz, Spain
We came with my 22 and 24 year old kids. My husband set up a guide trip to icefish and my daughter and I to shop. Coming into the property the water(ice) view was great! There was a lot of interesting activity on the ice. Moto racing, ice fishing...big ship coming from boat yard repair. The motel was very clean. We enjoyed a lunch and an amazing fish fry. I would recommend and hope some day our travels will bring us that way again. I saw kayaks and sailboats on the shoreline. I told they rent these I'm the summer . The location is perfect.
"Kids loved the beach!!!!"
03/21/14 Jess T Iowa City, Iowa
Went to Beach Harbor over the summer. We did most of our traveling North of Sturgeon bay. However, there was a beach at the resort and we spent a lot of time on it. Kids loved it and there huge rafts that were there for our use. Having a bar and grill there made for a good time for the adults too!
12/29/13 Christy1345 Neenah, Wisconsin, United States
My husband and I stayed at Beach Harbor Resort 12-27 thru 12-29. The room was extra clean! Very good rates for what they offer. The best in the area! The staff treated us like family from the start! The bar and restaurant had excellent food and very reasonably priced. Our stay was simply amazing and I recommend this resort everyone!! We will be going back in the near future.
