Sounded like a herd of elephants over head until 2 am. They need some sound proofing. We stayed on a Sunday night in April, and it was not full, but the noise was very annoying. Very clean, room was small, but so was the price. I would stay again on the second floor!

Great place to stay when working out of town. Working temporary at the Shipyard and needed a place to stay. This hotel is very convenient and clean which is what I was looking for. The owner and front desk staff are great to work with and very accommodating. The location can't be beat for everything you need when out of... More

This motel is unique. Liked the affordabiltiy and reservation process, not billed until arrival and no minimum night requirement. Great vibe, clean rooms, friendly local staff. Loved the breakfast diner. Walk to anywhere in Sturgeon Bay. Free bowling with room key at Cherry Lanes, same old vibe as motel. Brought back Sonny's pizza and enjoyed it in the diner. Could...

Was a nice stay. The rooms were done up nicely in the theme of the motel. The location was wondering default. Only negative thus was that the water pressure wasn't that great. But it was an all together pleasant stay.

If you are looking for a respite from the morass of everyday running around, a tasteful environment without pretence, clean, comfortable, homey, friendly, delightful, soothing, that's the Holiday Music Motel. Breakfast from 7:00 AM to noon. it is one of a kind.

Room 237, upstairs on the corner was very comfortable. The king bed was nice and everything was clean. Staff was efficient. Serve yourself breakfast in the dining area downstairs. You can walk to dining and the Maritime Museum. It would be a good base for a visit to Door County. We will return.

This is a great place to stay in Sturgeon Bay. It was very clean, quiet and had comfortable beds. It is also conveniently located close to the water and downtown. Staff were all nice and helpful. We enjoyed the Thursday open mic night next door. Our favorite part was the "diner" for breakfast. Go behind the counter to help yourself... More

I can't say enough good things about this little gem of a motel! The people that work there are always very friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect; easily walkable to restaurants and other conveniences. Rates are great and the rooms are VERY clean and comfortable. We live in Lake Country and stopped here on the way to Door County... More

nicely remodeled motel with a funky '50s ambiance. Clean, well maintained, in-town with easy walking access to shops and restaurants. Free parking, free wifi. Rooms are smallish--just like they were back in 1962, but a great nostalgic deal for visitors to Door county.
