“Fun retro/musical motel”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

The motel is older and has been maintained very well in a retro-50s style. There is an area in the lobby with guitars and other instruments and when we went to check-in, my husband zipped over there to play them. They had a guest musician (bagpipes) play at happy-hour time and he did a fabulous job! The beds and pillows were fabulously comfortable and the rooms scrupulously cleaned. They had a continental breakfast in a little diner area that was well stocked as well. We will definitely be staying there again!

Nestled into downtown Sturgeon Bay WI. is a diamond in the rough. Holiday Music Hotel offers everyone a clean, comfortable inn that is high on character and service.

My wife and I arrived in Door County with reservations to stay at a local B and B. Coming a day early to spread out the drive time we found the Holiday to our liking on Sunday night.

Music is the theme and 1950's is the atmosphere. Greeted by a charming host and warm converstion we settled in for the night. Directed to a local Fish Boil that was wonderful we certainly felt welcome.

The crowning highlite was breakfast in the retro kitchen in the morning. Sharing with other guests in a self serve style we found hot coffee and treats for our miorning meal.

We will return.

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was cute and more than adequate. You have to remember that it is a 50's design and won't have every amenity. Enjoyed the decor and the fact that it is locally owned.

We chose this motel because it was the only place I found that you could stay one night. Most places in Door County have a 2 night minimum (especially weekends). Very friendly and helpful staff, very clean, cute retro rooms and nice breakfast options in the cute little diner area. Overall good stay, no complaints and would stay there again. Thank-you Holiday Music Motel!

Green Features: Good, recycling is an option. You also have the opportunity to reuse your towels if you choose. They also do not waste shampoo, etc bottles and instead have a refillable device in the shower. They seem eco-friendly.

This is a wonderful motel with a unique atmosphere and feel to it. It is so refreshing to find a place that is not one of the boring chains. Everybody was extremely friendly and welcoming, they have excellent coffee and we ended up sitting at the breakfast bar way longer than we had planned because it was just so wonderful.

a nice retro style motel, very clean, very friendly and helpfull staff, great beds, convenient location. You just have to realize, it is an older building, you do hear your neighbors. Really like the retro, looks old but it is not, and everything is very clean.
