“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

My mother and I stayed in a first floor room for $140 for the night. For this price, the room was a real disappointment. It was unbelievably small, the bed was terrible, the bedside lamp did not work, the furniture was in bad shape, and the tv clicker was not functioning. The shower drain was clogged making the shower really gross. The front desk staff was not very helpful. We asked for a hair dryer, as there are none in the rooms. The front desk did lend us a spare hair dryer, but demanded that we bring it back right away. The next morning, there was only the dregs of some coffee and the front desk staff did not offer to make any more for us. I have stayed at several other places in Fish Creek over the years, and I cannot recommend that anyone stay here.

My Mother and I stayed at Apple Creek in September, and will definitely go back. We had a first floor room in the back with a balcony over looking a grassy area with trees. It was so quiet and peaceful to sit there after a day of shopping. Our room was neat and clean, and the front desk people were courteous and helpful. The location was ideal for us -across the street from the ""Top of the Hill" shops and also the auditorium where we saw a play. The hotel was perfect for what we needed!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back with a balcony.

My husband and I stayed here over this past weekend, because they refused to refund our deposit. I now wish we had just eaten that cost instead of wasting an additional $292 for the great displeasure of staying at this dump. I can now understand why they won't refund deposits, as I assume they get very few repeat visitors. In fact, I feel so taken by this "resort" that this is the first review for accomodations that I've ever written. I feel an obligation to fellow travelers to save them from making the same mistake.
Here are the reasons for my poor rating:
1. The decor is severly outdated and looks like it was picked up on clearance at Kmart in the 80s. I could have overlooked this had this been the only problem.
2. They only give you 2 decent-sized towels for a room that sleeps 4 adults.
3. The couch was so gross that it looks like they found it on the side of the road. We took a picture so that people could see for themselves.
4. The floor was so dirty that my 11-month old son had blackened the tops of his feet within 5 minutes of crawling on it.
5. The microwave was very old and had a hand dial that was so worn we needed to time it ourselves. The dial was worthless on it's own.
6. The refrigerator was so small, and it barely kept the food below room temperature.
7. The microwave and refrigerator were located just where you'd expect .... the bathroom. Yes, that's just where I like keep my food storage/prep, 5 feet from where it comes out as waste. How disgusting!
8. We paid $200 a night for this! Never again!

I think the owners of this place should be ashamed of themselves. I wouldn't charge $40 a night for this room let alone $200.

The location itself was decent, but still nothing to justify the price they're charging.
The only thing redeeming about this place was the girl at the front desk. She was very pleasant.

Room Tip: Keep looking for a different place to stay; this isn't it.

We stayed at AppleCreek Resort on our first trip to Door County and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The hotel is located in a great place to see all of the sights in the nearby towns. Lynn (the owner) went out of her way to help us plan our vacation time and led us to some great restaurants and places to explore. The indoor pool and hot tub were a great relief after sightseeing and hiking at the lighthouses and the Penninsula State Park. You won't be sorry if you choose to stay here. Prices were reasonable and the fireplace in our suite was quite welcome when the temperatures dropped.

Room Tip: We had the king suite with the whirlpool and the fireplace and complimentary wine.

Lynn and her staff went out of their way to help 13 college friends have a great get-together. We enjoyed the pool and the proximity to shopping hiking , biking, and playing Bocce ball in the nice green space in back. Balconies were great for chatting and tables were adequate for playing board games. All rooms were clean , the beds were comfy and everyone just had a great time. Nice place to go back to.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a luxury suite there...We were given a jar of Door County cherry jam as a gift for our fifth anniversary there...our Whirlpool in our room worked fantastic to ease the muscles from a busy day walking in the nearby state park and accommodating the wife on her gift hunting trips...great restaurants were nearby including Sonny's pizza place...We will definitely come back here...

Room Tip: there are motel rooms at a modest price and luxury suites at a higher price...you have a choice
