Loved this place to the max. So very clean, and welcoming and great beds. Would return anytime. Super value and we could walk to many places in Sturgeon Bay. Decorating throughout very retro, brought back memories.

Quite simply the best place to stay in Door County! Staff is friendly, helpful and treats you like family! Door County has changed so much over the past 20 years and this Hotel remains a landmark! Highly recommended!

We chose the largest room on the 2nd floor. We stayed at the Holiday Music Motel in the beginning of October 2016 for 2 nights. I was sad to leave and wished we had 1 more night. The employees are very accommodating and when you ask them a question, they are very happy to help you. The free breakfast was...

I'm simply writing a review to reiterate what others here have said and help out these decent owners. This place is a great value and a very cool old 50s motel, refurbished and well run. Nothing but good things to say about the experience from the friendly staff at check-in to the very clean accommodations.

We were leary of staying there because the rates were so low, but the reviews were excellent so we tried it. It was perfect for what we needed. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, and unique. The breakfast was really good and plenty for us to start our day. The people were very friendly too. We will definitely stay here again!

Many good things have already been posted about this motel, built in 1952, and I agree with all of it, the friendliness, retro decor, comfort, cleanliness, good value (especially in the off season--my room mid-week in December was only $49!), the breakfast (available until noon!), the convenient location. But beyond that, it is homey and casual and humorous in a...

Great "motel" in the heart of Sturgeon Bay! Funky 50' motive and awesome owner who is just as funky and fun as you would expect. Impromptu concerts, year round Christmas Tree and retro furnished room make the Holiday Music Motel a must visit at least once!

Holiday Music Hotel is delightful. Clean, organized, customer friendly, free parking and wifi plus terrific decor! After spending the previous two nights in bleach-drenched chain motels, I was grateful to stay in a room without any obvious odor -- just clean. Price is more than fair. Great location. Don't miss out on a great experience.
