Rooms have been updated since we last stayed here. The updated shower head almost made it impossible for me to get out of the shower. Bedding has been improved and for a small motel's their tv has more channels than most chains have. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. Snacks and tea/coffee are plentiful in the office and a... More

It you need a place to stay with your family and your dogs this is the place to come. It's clean, the owner is friendly and she has snacks in the office at all times for you to get if you need some. To top it off the prices are reasonable to stay. She even has a crate if you... More

My travel motto is "you get what you pay for" and that definitely applies here. Super nice owner, dog friendly (no extra fees!) and under $100 which is probably unheard of in Door County! Comfy beds, free popcorn and snacks in the lobby. Yes, it's older but totally fine for overnight.

Nuttin' fancy. As Tom Bodet would say when you turn out the lights they all look the same. If you want small own hospitality the place is for you. They except pets and have more than a little strip of grass to take them out to. I love the faux waterfall and pond with the classic pink flamingo. Small fridge... More

We were in town for a family get together and needed a clean, comfortable place to stay which did not cost a fortune. The Edge of Town motel fit our needs perfectly. The owner is friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and had a small fridge, microwave, table with two chairs, and a desk with another chair. The decor... More

This is the third year in a row we stayed at this motel. Joanie and JR are the best hosts. They will go over and above to meet all your needs. The motel has very reasonable prices. Nice fire place and little waterfall in yard that guests can enjoy. Love this place!

Stayed here often and very happy with the atmosphere and the accommodations. Joanie and JR really went out of their way and made us feel at home. Definitely not a new, pricey and corporate hotel, thankfully. Price was right and will recommend and return.

My husband and I found the Edge of Town Motel on our unplanned drive to Door County. We arrived at around 9 pm and the owner, Joanie was SUPER pleasant. She was informative about the area and what we could expect from her and her son while we stayed. She pointed out the "goodies" that are always available and then... More

Put your feet up without feeling guilty. A bit quirky and eclectic, the Edge of Town is fun. Joanie and J.R. offer a virtual "open-door" environment including easy access to "goodies" in the office. Outstanding value for money! We'll be back.

“If you want a motel that is NOT clean, and has a driveway that is like walking in gravy when it rains, and no way to keep your shoe's from tracking it to the bad carpet, and beds/chairs that even a yard sale would throw away then you MIGHT like this motel. VERY POOR accomidations!! never again!!!!!!”
