"Cool and funky"
What a great find! Not maybe what every traveller has in mind, but it has a wonderful breakfast and is in a great central location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yes! Give this place a go."
The hotel is older . . however, has cute 1950 - 1960s furnishings. Great price - for a decent place to crash and an ideal location - shopping, eating, pubs, marina all within walking distance. Neighborhood is good - no issues. Recommend staying here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
IT WAS A OLDER MOTEL, however IT WAS CLEAN AND FRIENDLYGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Clean and our stay was fine. Older building but well kept.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Retro Motel"
I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about booking this hotel. I was traveling on business and was not sure if it would be up to my conservative standards. I loved it. It was relaxing, the staff was excellent and the renovations have been completed very professionally. Now the only minor thing I would do is to work on the exterior. I am […] sure that's on their project list. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We all enjoyed the stay. Some of the guys went up for the Thursday night open mic in the studio room which was obviously a big scene with the locals.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked a few rooms for our guys while we worked at the Palmer Johnson Yacht company on a project. The motel was clean and comfortable. It was also the most unique place we've stayed at with an excellent vibe and friendly atmosphere. The retro "breakfast diner" was stocked everything and more you'd want and expect from a Continental breakfast. There […] was always someone new there to meet and talk to which was made possible by the communal area. And the 24hrs coffee bar was throughly used and appreciated through long hours I was personally working. The hotel staff was exceptional. Every single staff member was extremely friendly and attentative. We were very happy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Unique Little Motel!!"
If you are looking for a very unique and fun place to spend a night or two - this is it!! It a retro 1950's motel. In the lobby you expect Elvis, Jerry Lee or the Big Bopper to pick up one of the guitars and start singing. The Cafe (where breakfast is located) is totally 50's. This is by no means a luxury hotel, but everything you need is there!! It […] is clean, quiet and very comfortable. The pillow top mattress was very comfortable. It is located in the middle of Sturgeon Bay, close to shopping and the highway to the upper part of Door County. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Really clean, staff rocked, priced perfectly... Highly recommendedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Motel was old and oevery thingutdated tv was the smallest I have ever seen in a motel roomGenuine Expedia guest review
My room was neat and clean room needed some general work like paint touch up repair to poster frameGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, good service"
The motel is located right in the heart of where it all happens in Sturgeon Bay, the service is very basic but that allows travelers who do not require extensive service to have an affordable place to sleep with an above average breakfast very close to most to-do's and must-have-seen's in Sturgeon Bay. The bathrooms are a bit small and the fifties interior […] is something you have to appreciate but I liked it, I have seen too many modern hotels. The only modern amenity I miss is the automatic thermostat for the shower/bath. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Holiday Music Motel"
Everything about the stay was fantastic. We had a great time. Pat, Melaniejane and Theresa were all wonderful and helpful. We are looking forward to going back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Blast from the past!"
For those looking for uniqueness in their hotel stay, this is the place for you! It definitely has character! Everything is decorated as from the sixties. There is a decorated tree in the lobby (because it is always a Holiday at the Holiday Music Motel!). Staff was very friendly, beds comfortable, nice shower, hotel room very clean and free wifi worked […] great. I had a mini fridge and coffee maker in my room. If you are looking for 5 star hotel amenities, this is not the place for you. They do not have room service, but do have a little breakfast area (decorated nostalgically) with a free continental breakfast including toast, pastries, hard boiled eggs, coffee, milk, oatmeal and fruit. No gym, no attached restaurant. For light sleepers, it is a bit more background noise but they do supply ear plugs if needed. Downtown Sturgeon Bay is within very close walking distance of the hotel. Maritime museum is also very close by. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay."
My buddy and I took a weekend road trip to Door County for some hiking. I saw this place on Expedia and figured I would check it out. The room was $65 with tax and was worth every penny. The rooms were a throwback of something you would see from the 60's. It must have been an extremely tedious process to replicate the rooms from that time. The room […] smelled extremely fresh. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable and I was able to get one of the best nights of sleep I have had in a long time. It's been a while since I have been to a motel with an actual key to open the door. The staff was extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone stopping in Sturgeon Bat. Great stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice hotel with friendly staff"
I was in Sturgeon Bay for a quick business trip and arrived late the first night. The staff welcomed me after a long drive and set the stage for a nice visit. The breakfast area was great and I was able to meet a few folks during my short stay. The room was well outfitted and the TV mounted high on the wall was easy to watch from bed. Downtown Sturgeon […] Bay is also within walking distance and the hotel manager recommended a nice restaurant for dinner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
this hotel goes out of its way to make you enjoy your stay. Themed to the fifty's, very authentic and comfortable. I travelled a lot the last few weeks and this was the best stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
At first glance on the website I got a feeling of an older mom and pop owning this and a way to show off their decades of music memorabilia. I anticipated older rooms with that kind of grandma's house musty smell, but the reviews were great so we gave it a try. To the contrary this Hotel is modern retro motel. They managed to modernize the place while […] keeping a quality "authentic" retro feel. Oh and NO MUSTY SMELLS! The room had the old fashioned metal dresser and night stand, a reupholstered retro chair, a rotary type phone and authentic room lighting. The mattresses are new Sealy, very comfortable. Heat is digital, the carpet new. The bathroom has retro sink and medicine cabinet but a modern toilet and shower with soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers. The lobby has many instruments waiting to be played. The hall has modern paintings by local artists. The kitchen is an old diner. They provide rolls, hard boiled eggs, hot/cold cereal juice, milk, coffee and tea. From what I understand is there is a group of investors, a couple of them live on site. We spoke to one of the owners and she said she was a musician and informed us of the open mic night upstairs in their studio on Thursday night, it was very cool. It seems very popular and who doesn't enjoy some live music. Overall this was a wonderful experience, so much so it makes me want to invest in a similar property, it is a well executed idea and we will definitely return.

"Very unique and fun!"
We loved the unique character of the place! We can't wait to come back!Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was clan and comfortable. The bed was not though. It was way to saggy for me. The continental breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great retro motel"
Great retro motel with a friendly staff. Cleaner than many newer chain motels. Makes you feel like you stepped back in time when life was simpler. I don't often rate motels but this one impressed me so much that I did and plan on going back. And I have also told friends about it which I never do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An excellent value in Door County."
This hotel was very charming, clean and affordable.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is honestly THE cleanest hotel/motel I have EVER stayed in! The charm and character of the 1952 hotel was adorable! This is the place to stay for couples of all ages -kids would not appreciate it! Staff was friendly and helpful!--Birmingham's has great food thanks for the tip! The downtown shops were 2 blocks away and great! Loved the unique gifts […] and clothes..not the stuff you see at the mall or Walmart. Will stay again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't be afraid of staying at a non chain, super friendly staff, clean room, decent breakfast, internet is good as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Retro, clean and close to everything!"
This was our second visit to the Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay. We chose it for it's convenient location and the price. The service was friendly and personal and so accommodating to our early morning schedule-providing us with breakfast, knowing we were going to be up and out before their normal breakfast hours! The rooms are neat and clean and […] beds very comfortable. We stayed on 2nd floor on this visit, which was much more quiet than having guests in the room above us on our earlier visit. A great place to stay and such thoughtful service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun Hotel; Great Location"
My wife and I visited in early-mid November so we got there at the beginning of the "winter" season so a lot of places had closed. We were fine with that though since we didn't want the crowds that usually come with tourist destinations. Instead of spending all our time in Sturgeon Bay we explored more of Door country and took in some of the parks in […] the area. We were there during a bit of a cold snap but the area was still very pretty. Even during the winter we were able to find some nice establishments to eat at. Sonny's Pizzeria makes some really tasty deep dish pizzas and my wife tells me that I must mention their delicious desserts. There were some finer dining areas around but we decided to do this trip rather spontaneously and didn't have any decent clothes to suit the atmospheres (I didn't even bring a polo). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Holiday Music Hotel was a great get away place for us. Our room was cute, clean, quiet, and affordable. We were able to bring our dog with us. Located in the pretty harbor town of Sturgeon Bay, it was perfect for driving up the coast to the tip of the thumb! The only issue I had was that the compressor of the refrigerator in our room was rather loud, […] occasionally waking me. I would imagine this is not the norm for all rooms. I will definitely stay here again upon our return to the U.P.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Everything was great! (Just one suggestion...)"
Everything was perfect. Service, room, breakfast, accessibility, - everything! Only thing a bit hard to get used to was the A/C heater unit. We couldn't tell if it was delayed or a programming problem but when it was too cold and we turned the temperature up (~70 degrees) it would circulate a lot of hot air into our room. So much it would almost seem […] suffocating so we'd turn it down (60-65 degrees) and then eventually the room would become too cold again. Maybe a thermostat malfunction? Other than that ***WONDERFUL PLACE*** to stay. :) Highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"so nice we had to stay twice!"
After a long drive this was a great place to end our day.... actually went up and spent the day in upper door county and by the time we finished a late dinner we decided to come back and check in for a second night. A really neat atmosphere, fun décor, the music vibe gives it a personality all it's own. The breakfast bar is well done and the staff was […] as warm as the coffee. Thanks for a great 2 nites on the road... we'll be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, Convenient, Comfortable, and Cozy--not Corporate Cliché! (a real plus!)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have been looking forward to staying here. The lobby decor is unique and inspired. The room was small but comfortable enough, and was also decorated nicely. The breakfast was well maintained and well stocked. We would love to come back and spend more time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most comfortable beds that we have slept"
We were totally satisfied with everything. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The beds were great. The continental breakfast was very good--had lots of variety.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a relief"
It's so nice to stay at a place where the staff genuinely cares about the business and how much you enjoy it. I would stay at the Holiday before I'd stay at any other hotel in sturgeon bay. If I was traveling with kids, I'd stay at the Maritime, which I'm sure is the way everyone would prefer it :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find off the highway"
Held up to its 50's them. Diner has 24H coffee and tea. Love the 1950's items -- reminds me so much of the times when Life seems uncomplicated. Linda at the desk was very helpful in giving directions; even placed a call to one of the places where we reserved the evening for the traditional whitefish boil. It's about an hour drive to Ephraim but with […] all the great Fall colors along the way, it's hardly noticeable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend out of town"
Cool, funky place. Very clean and close to downtown stuff. A real throwback in time, comfortable and dog friendly! I would certainly stay here again. Small TV with a limited stations, but I was in town to watch the tube. Good little breakfast station and some cool artwork of dogs in the hallway!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay the night and enjoy the music!"
We stayed at the Holiday Music Motel for one night while visiting Door County. Our check in was quick and easy, our room was clean and the bed was comfy (we loved the 50's decor), nice to have a fridge in the room, just around the corner from some shops and restaurants, a block from the Steel Bridge, the continental breakfast was a plus and the staff […] was friendly and helpful. The best part of our stay was the "Writer's Night" Open Mic they had from 7-9 (Thursday). We heard some great musicians with their original songs and listened to some wonderful poets. We will come back and stay again. If you are in the neighborhood on a Thursday night I highly recommend you stop in for the Writer's Night Open Mic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
very nice was interesting to find out about the music connection to the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Places like this normally make me nervous that I will end up in a tub full of ice with my kidneys missing, but this place was far from that. The entire motel and room was spotless, the staff was accommodating and extremely friendly, the bed was comfortable, it was a very easy maybe 4 minute walk to the downtown area, and the decor was unique, fun, and […] very inviting. This was an awesome motel and a pleasant release from the big box hotels that are nothing more than a bed to sleep in. I can not recommend this place enough and will be sure to send anyone I know there if they are in the area. In summary, fantastic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I could walk to the restaurant and other attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
Cute, comfortable and pleasant hotel with retro décor. Everything was very clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Noticed little noise insulation but all was quiet after 10 pm. It was a fun and unique stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Is this the best value in Door County?"
This place is about as nice as you can get. Everything was spotless. Rooms were extremely comfortable. Service was as good as I have ever had. Continental breakfast was far better than competitors I have stayed at. The coffee was excellent, available all day. Just a 2-3 block walk to most restaurants on the main drag. We were on the lower floor and […] we could hear noise in the room above us. Not bad, though and there were earplugs furnished in the nightstand. Traffic noise was minimal.
