We stayed for two nights to attend a family reunion. The room was big, clean, quiet and nicely equipped. Everything we needed was within walking distance. Parking was no problem with plenty of space. In spite of several negative reviews, we did not encounter a 'musty smell'. WiFi reception must have been bad before, but it was excellent when we... More

Wish I had read back further in these TripAdvisor reviews because the current ones seem misleading. Upon entering my room after a long day's drive, I was overwhelmed by an odor of mildew so strong I wondered if something had died in there. This is not a place to stay if you have allergies or breathing difficulties. I had already... More

The Parkside Inn is about 25 years old, and I don't think any updates had been made to the room we stayed in (1st floor double). Having said that, the room was clean and had everything we needed, including a small refrigerator and microwave. My only real issue was the strong musty smell. Because the hotel is seasonal, I suspect... More

My wife and I spent part of our Honeymoon in Door County. We stopped at the Parkside Inn without a reservation. The man in the office was very helpful. He told us that this was the last night of the season(October 25th). The room was very nice. It was $69 for a large room with a fridge and microwave. The... More

At 25 years old, this is one of the newer motels in Door County. Located in a very relaxing part of the Door---Ellison Bay, up near the top. Away from all of the hustle and bustle of the lower towns, but close to the popular Charlie's Smokehouse and the Washington Island Ferry. Awesome rates at $46.00 per night, while many... More

We recently spent 3 nights there. My wife attended an art workshop across the street at the lakefront park while I explored northern Door County via bicycle. Good location. Clean. Management was very nice and very helpful.

It's a clean 3 star hotel. I wouldn't want to stay here for a week, but it was fine for a night or two. It was quiet and included a small refrigerator and microwave. Our room had fairly new carpeting. The only real negative that I can come up with involves the beds. They weren't what I would call comfortable.... More
