Door County hotel getting makeover from TV star


DOOR COUNTY (WKOW) --  A Door County hotel is getting a superstar makeover.

This week, the host of the Travel Channel's show "Hotel Impossible" is coming to Bailey's Harbor to revive Beachfront Inn on the program. Anthony Melchiorri has 20 years experience in the hospitality industry. He's known for being brutally honest.

The 20-room hotel is on Highway 57 in Bailey's Harbor and includes beachfront views. But business hasn't been great.

The hotel's owners, Tammy and Terry Bork, say they've put hundreds of thousands of dollars into it, but haven't seen a return on their investment, so they're hoping the show can help them out.

"It's just cost us so much more to remodel than what we, I think, thought it would be to try to get it to where we want it to be," said Tammy.

"A lot of times I work over the road to bring in an extra income just so we have profit," said Terry.

The episode won't air until August.
