With so many lodging options in Door County, we took a lot of time figuring out what kind of accomodations we wanted. Not being B&B people we decided on one of the smaller hotels and the Homestead Suites offered a great deal for a nice room in the perfect location. The hotel is located right on Main Street in Fish Creek within walking minutes of the downtown area (which is loaded with restaurants and shopping). For this convenience alone this hotel was worth it and the bonus was... the room was nice too!
It is set up as one long building with the middle section being the reception area, the "dining" room, gym and pool. The dining room offers a free continental breakfast (blah) but good when you need an early coffee (because they forget to give you the coffee in your room) and some snacks.
We got a king room with whirlpool called the Spruce Suite. The room was located on the far left of the building so we didn't need to go through the main entrance to get in and out of the hotel. The room was long and large and the set up was convenient. There was a large whirlpool next to the bed. The other side of the room had a sofa and fireplace along with a door to a patio.
We only had 3 complaints with this hotel: The bed was horribly uncomfortable and resulted in a sore back every morning, the double headed shower was annoying not sexy, and the parking was difficult (although to be fair the parking is like that in all of Door County).
The whirlpool and fireplace made for very romantic evenings with a bottle of wine and some chocolates from the nearby candy store! Awesome location!
This place isn't luxurious compared to some of the more posh inns, bed and breakfasts, and resorts in Fish Creek and other nearby villages, but many of the rooms have a very nice view over the bay, everything is kept up well, and it's a good buy. If you're not planning to spend much time in the room and just want a good night's rest and comfortable accommodations, this place is the best--it's within walking distance of all downtown Fish Creek activities.
