"Convenient hotel near downtown"
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.

"Nice hotel for the money."
The rooms are very basic, but very clean and comfortable. The breastfast eating area was awesome! The staff were extremely cordial and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Take a trip back in time!"
The Holiday Music Motel was adorable! If you are looking for high tech/modern accommodations this is not your place! As you pull up the outside sign and entrance is a blast from the past and the check in/lobby has a lot to look at in regard to nostalgia. The staff/service is excellent and very knowledgeable of the surrounding area. They even have a […] little self-serve diner attached for breakfast that is just like stepping into the 50's. They have done a great job of keeping their rooms clean and comfortable while still sticking with their theme. We had a full bathrooom with shower amenities as well as a queen bed, small LCD TV, mini fridge, desk, small seating table and a couple of chairs - all either restored or original to the hotel. It is located in Sturgeon Bay very close/waling distance to shops and diners/cafe's/restaurants. If you want to go to a cute motel with great service I would recommend this place, and the price is very affordable compared to most of Door County! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the decor! Clean, fairly quiet rooms with super comfortable beds/pillows. Would definitely stay there again!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the staff, very nice people. Chose this place because it is pet friendly and there are good places for dog walking very close by. Bed was over soft and we had a hard time sleeping. Every sound does come through the walls which is a bother. The place was clean and definitely has a funky vibe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved this wonderful little hotel!"
Tired of the same old chain motels and hotels? Do yourself a favor and spend a night in Sturgeon Bay at the Holiday Music Motel. It's got a wonderful '50s motif from the lobby to the rooms, that will bring a smile to your face. The dining area for breakfast is a retro diner, complete with Campbell's soup heater I haven't seen in 50 years! The Internet […] service was excellent, and the breakfast was delicious, although basic. If I was visiting this area again I'd stay here in a heartbeat! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable Friendly Clean"
The entire property dates in the 1950, the breakfast starts at 7:00 AM. Continental breakfast is very limited in choices, the counter seats about six and has one table for two. Very laid back and very simple format. The clerk was helpful in information about things to do and see in Door County. Queen size beds were better than expected. The motel lobby […] is decorated with musical instraments also a aluminum christmas tree with revolving color light wheel, They have cd's made by local talent to sell in lobby.

Very pleasantly surprised by the retro rooms. Was like walking into a set from the 1950's. However the bed was super comfortable and the staff was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. Good continental breakfast in the "malt shop" in the morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Distinctive "retro" hotel,"
I really enjoyed the 1950's "mid-century modern" decor. The room was small but very comfortable for this single traveler. It was my intent to explore Sturgeon Bay/Southern Door for this trip, and the hotel's location was very convenient for this. The coziness of the area for the continental breakfast was nice as it gave you the opportunity to interact […] with other hotel guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay. The room had everything we needed for our 4 nights. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. It was in walking distance to shopping, walks along the waterfront and good eating places. The staff was friendly. I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"stopping point for Door County"
The whole hotel had a 50's theme, right down to the dishes for breakfast but it was great. The welcome we received on check-in was great and each time we came downstairs they always asked if everything was ok or if they could get us anything. Quiet rooms at night for sleeping. GREAT HOTEL! Will stay again when we go to Door CountyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you want a motel that hits all the right notes"
The Holiday Music Motel is a fun and upbeat place to stay. Retro decor abounds, as does good cheer from the staff. Thoughtful amenities include recycling receptacles, affordable vending machines, and a homey breakfast area with round-the-clock coffee. We enjoyed the comfortable beds and the convenience of being within walking distance of almost anything […] we wanted to do in town. It was a welcome retreat from the more touristy areas of the Door Peninsula. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
When we found this place online I was skeptical. I was VERY impressed when we checked in, pleasantly suprised. The room was very clean and the RETRO furnishings were pretty cool. The bed was very comfortable and made for a good nights sleep. The young lady that checked us in was very friendly and quite pleasant and cute. I can only give 4 out of 5 stars […] because the "continental breakfast" was very limited but they did offer a breakfast. Some places don't. I won't be afraid to check back in sometime soon.

OLDER MOTEL, BUT VERY WELL MAINTAINED AND VERY CLEAN. FRIENDLY STAFFGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were there on our honeymoon, visiting the area to tour lighthouses. The staff couldn't have been more friendly, the bed more comfortable, or the room more inviting. Plenty of hot water, wonderful pressure... and in close proximity to shopping and eating. I have already recommended this hotel to a couple of my musician friends and we hope to make […] it back there for one of our anniversaries. Absolutely fabulous. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"a very charming place"
Staff was very friendly and helpfull, The rooms are comfortable and clean. This place is great for people who have an appreciation for things from the past. The interior is original from the 50s and 60s, so don't expect a super modern hotel. This is the first environmentally friendly hotel I found in the United States. Instead of producing mountains […] of plastic garbage, they provide proper Cups, plates and cutlery in their breakfast room.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Retro, fun atmosphere"
comfortable however small. If you're looking for someplace close to the beach, a five star rating or room service - Holiday Motel is not it. If you are looking for quaint, retro decor, comfortable bed, clean room and great staff - this is it. close to Historic Third Street of Sturgeon Bay, 2-3 blocks away from the lift bridges, close to shopping and […] inexpensive pubs with great food.

"Retro 50s hotel a charmer"
All decor has been retained since it was built in 1952. The breakfast area is smallish, but leads to intimate conversations as you sit at the breakfast counter or walk behind the counter to gather cereal, breads, or coffee. Friday night's MI Street bridge traffic was loud, but the other two nights were pretty quiet. Nice bed and shower in a great location […] for the museum, library, and Ice Age Trail.

"Wonderful in every way"
The hotel is a vintage dream, and the staff who own it are too. It's truly an engaging and relaxing experience, unique and clean and conveniently located. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. And they have cute Holiday Music Motel t shirts! ;)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very cool place to stay"
The overall appearance of the hotel and rooms was clean and inviting. The staff were so nice - everyone on every shift!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quirky, reasonable Door County hotel"
We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Music Hotel and appreciated the price. The decor took us back to our 1950s childhoods. Staff was very accommodating. A drain problem was handled as soon as we told them about it. Fridge in the room was helpful and the pillows were great! Our only concern was occasional noise from the rooms above and next to us. Those […] metal drawers do get a little noisy. The earplugs in the nightstand were a charming solution to the problem. We did end up doing a lot of driving since Sturgeon Bay is on the southern end of the peninsula. Would be happy to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great little motel"
From the outside the Holiday Music Motel looks alittle run down, but the inside is cute and kitchy.

"Just over the bridge in Sturgeon Bay"
We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Music Motel. The atmosphere is retro and very cool, a blast from the past. Old style phones (push button but look like rotary), awesome metal furniture in retro colors. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful, and the morning get together in the guest kitchen was just outstanding. Felt like you were staying at a friends […] house full of weekend guests. Not perfect but that is the charm. Very clean, comfortable. If you are looking for a little something different and not the normal motel/hotel experience...this is more like a bed and breakfast feel. Give Holiday Music a try and find out why "music" was added to the name! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We absolutely love this place. Fun, kitschy, clean simple place lovingly run by musicians. You wake up to a serve yourself breakfast as you sit and chat with other people who are just as happy to be there. We'll be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"loved the difference"
My boyfriend was a bit skeptical because he thought it looked way old but we were all super happy with the friendly service and how clean everything was. I loved the decor! My twelve year old daughter thought having a real key was the best! I would stay again, no problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff makes this a great experience. They really care about their guests. The air went out in my unit, and they bought temporary replacement unit and installed while we were out because replacement part would take one day to get. Also, the musicians that perform for free really make this a must see for anyone in the area. I plan to stop here every […] summer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Back in Time -- Retro Fun"
Loved it. Arrived on bicycle. Needed a late check out. Staff was very accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and friendly retro renovated motel"
Every part of our stay was positive. The owners have clearly put their care into The Holiday. The beds are awesomely comfortable and the breakfast set up is a better than average and in the fun mini retro diner . The motel is conveniently located near the main Hwy, the main strip of town & other surrounding services and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"50's style motel"
Nice lite breakfast, in a mockup dinner, near downtown and water front.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A unique experience. Back to the 50's!!"
Cozy room with retro 50's-style furnishings. Continental breakfast was very good, located in an authentic "diner" room with stools that spin. Everything was clean and well-kept. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history and uniqueness of the place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good as a Base"
The room was clean and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They use the old-fashioned room keys as opposed to card keys, which is a bit of a security issue. But the rooms open into a hallway, not to the parking lot so that helps. Amenities are minimal but as a base for exploring Door County it was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Traveling with Dog."
The motel allows dogs but they make you feel like you don't belong when you show up with one. The rooms are tight and there is little or no counter space in the room. The bath has no counter space. The motel has a 1950 theme but some of the effect look like it's run down.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In the heart of the city"
All in all I enjoyed my stay. The 1950's decor is really nice. The only issue encountered was a slow bathroom drain that the attendant noted immediately for service. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to family for funeral"
I liked the motel and we would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Great Visit to Sturgeon Bay and Door County"
Visited for a few days' getaway, wanted to stay someplace affordable, quirky, locally owned. Very friendly and helpful staff--it's clear this is a real local gem.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel definitely has a lot of old school charm. Looks like it is straight out of the 50's. Very clean and in a great location. Easy walk to restaurants and bars. Doesn't have all the amenities of a chain hotel, but worth staying here if the price is decent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff has a passion for service."
From check-in to check-out, everything about my stay was great. The staff is very approachable, and they all displayed an amazing eagerness to provide great service. They were very attentive any time we wandered within their sight. Also, the retro decor, from the diner area to the furniture in our room, was delightful. The next time I'm in Door County, […] I will definitely be staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kitschy 1950's hotel."
Hotel was fine, very clean. Two floors, no elevator for older folks. Room was nice and comfortable. I laughed when I entered. All the furniture was from the '50's! Nice location, two blocks from shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
Motel claim to fame is it's 1950 look which is interesting for one night but I would not stay more than that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
