"October 2014 Visit"
This was the first time I have stayed at the Holiday Music Hotel. I found it to be clean, reasonably priced, and the staff was friendly. My wife and I got a room with a full size bed. The room was pretty basic, just big enough for two people. The hotel and it's rooms have a retro 1950's theme which was amusing, except for in the bathroom where the 50's style of sink had no counter space to lay any toiletries or make up kits on and the fifties toilet does not have a seat that you can close and use to place things on when you are getting ready (that would be my one suggestion to the hotel, install toilet seats). The bed was comfortable and as mentioned earlier the room was clean and well kept up. There is a continental breakfast in a room that resembles an old diner. The selection was fine and the staff kept the food items filled up. The location is one street off Sturgeon Bay. There are ample restaurants and coffee shops that are within a 1 - 2 block walking distance. I would stay here again for short stays. Because of the size of the room, I might choose other accommodations for longer stays.

"Nice motel in Sturgeon Bay"
The motel is located very, very close to third street which is where all the shopping/restaurants can be found in Sturgeon Bay. Very comfortable rooms. Front desk staff are extremely helpful. Close to Door County Maritime Museum as well. Nice simple breakfast in the morning.

"Close to everything"
We stayed in Sturgean Bay as the rates were quite a bit less than Egg Harbor and Fish Creek and they all wanted a minimum of 3 nights. We drove a little to get to get to Egg Harbor and Fish Creek area but it was not a problem. Enjoyed the wineries.

"Vintage Meh"
I guess this is about what I should have expected for the cost of the room – tiny room, slightly decrepit, soap/conditioner/shampoo from a dispenser on the wall. Nothing was so horrible, but it was altogether meh; the hip vintage vibe that i was looking forward to was overshadowed by the rundown room and furnishings.

"A trip to the fifties"
A hearty recommendation especially for music and nostalgia buffs. The Thursday night open mic in the newly purchased Steel Bridge motel addition was a pleasant diversion - local artists performing their original music. No cover, just good music. Those who want Super8 or even the Sheraton may be disappointed. This is a very special place operated by investors who love authentic grass roots music and ambiance. 1950's decor very authentic, too.

"Location Location Location"
Okay, we are used to roomier rooms, but..... my wife and I both said we were okay with what we needed for this stay. Which was precisely a spot to walk around to see the area. I will use the word "quaint" for this facility. Everything was very clean, and as I mentioned, it was perfect location for walking around. As previous reviews said, the tv was small, rooms petite, and breakfast area tiny. So depends on what you need for your visit I guess. All said and done, we will probably consider this motel again if decide to visit the area again for the same purpose.

Location is one thing but the motel itself is awesome!!!! If you like retro (50"s style) you'll love this place. It's neat, clean, well decorated for retro and music is also one of it's themes. If you are looking for basic meet your needs fun place to stay this is it. You are also one block from downtown Sturgeon Bay and all of it's amenities.

"Love The Decor....But Oh, The Beds!"
My husband and I liked the decor and the staff was so friendly and helpful...even took a picture of us in the music room. We really appreciated having access to morning coffee to take back to our room and we liked that the owner promoted music fests around Door County. The corridor smelled a bit musty, but there were strategically placed air fresheners to counteract this. The drawback was the bed. We stayed 2 nights and we both had backaches each morning. I convinced my husband that the beds didn't date back to the 50s, but they were much too soft for sleeping comfortably.

"A convenient surprise"
I was looking for a room at the last minute and found this one. I took the king bed option. The bed was soft but we were comfortable. The room furnishings are spartan looking but in retrospect (literally) they fit the theme of the hotel and were quite cool, especially the combo dresser desk. The place was quiet. Now, for the cons:)the air conditioner was a bit loud as was the refrigerator. We turned both off. But remember a loud air unit is not just the province of moderately priced or older hotels. I have stayed in more posh places with noisy heat/AC units. In a nutshell, I would stay here again; it is close to the downtown which is quaint if not more diminutive than the flash of Fish Creek.

"Great room - such a nice place."
We arrived and were instantly impressed. The place looks just like they claim and it is so clean and well maintained. We have been to a few "historical" hotels that were not kept up - this was not the case here. The bed was very comfortable. The wifi was fantastic. We also got very good advice about places to try for dinner and things to do. The breakfast is basic - but was enough to keep us going until lunch, and the diner was a blast to eat in. We only stayed one night - but we plan on staying here again.

"Know going in it's a motel"
Nothing bad about this motel except maybe a bit cramped early in the cont. breakfast area. But it is a pretty cool dining area and it's open till noon so no rush. Friendly and talkative staff. Couple of blocks away from museum, lift bridge, and small town touristy Main Street. Decent enough jumping off point if you can get a reasonable price.

My fiancé and I wanted to go to Door County camp 1 night and hotel lounge the next night….SO happy we chose the Holiday Music Motel! The girl who checked us in on Sunday evening was very nice and seemed like she was passionate about the history of the motel and it's contribution to the music community of Sturgeon Bay. The room was very comfortable!!! The price is also a lot less than other hotels in Door County!

"WHAT A SURPRISE!!!"
This was the cleanest, homey, friendliest place we stayed in our 7 day journey. My 10 year old granddaughter loved it as well. With the 50's vibe, I was a bit worried how my family would feel when we pulled up. On arriving, my husband made me go in and "check it out". Upon leaving, he gave it a 6 out of 6 stars! the best rest we got, the best coffee, even the shower seemed to be the best.

Exactly what we expected. This motel was not my first choice but most places were full already as this was somewhat a last minute trip. It's a tiny little gem! It was extremely clean, cute, quaint and quiet. The bar and restaurant across the street at Stone Harbor Resort were convenient. For the price I feel this was a good choice! It's old but cute!
