Stayed for the night on a road trip around Lake Michigan, the hotel is amazing. The only negative I could say is that the outside could do with a tidy up - but we didn't go there to sit out front & didn't detract from our stay! The rooms are just too cute with vintage furniture & even a working... More

This place has it all—excellent service, great location, adorable facilities, and great breakfast. My husband claims it was the most comfortable bed he's ever slept in. The breakfast is amazing, and the entire place has a perfect retro charm. None of it feels old or out-dated; the entire place screams 'perfect'. We were in Sturgeon Bay for a wedding, and... More

My husband and I spent the night at this motel before touring many of Door County's lighthouses the following day. We loved the hospitality we received from the moment we walked in the door. She even told us that we had picked one of her favorite rooms since it was one of the few where you could somewhat see the... More

Did a little vacation in the absolute middle of NON-tourist season late April ... 40s, rain, alone...almost! The lobby looks like Christmas all the time! The room was fine and the breakfast buffet really was a throwback to a 50s diner... only it was self serve! Tiney, cozy, comfy ... met one other guest in from Tennessee ... that southern... More

This place had a really cool feel. I work as a contractor, and stayed here multiple times. There are other options for hotels in this area like the Super 8's etc....my employer booked me here on my first nights stay, and upon pulling into the lot, I was like jeez...really??? I was certainly wrong. From the outside it looks like... More

The hotel has a retro feel with the original tile and furniture. Comfortable beds. Fun place to stay! Location is close to the bay, so we could walk in the downtown area or across the lift bridge right fro the hotel.

This is a small two-story boutique motel of the 50's era. The lobby is decorated with a Christmas tree, musical instruments and toys of that era. There are steep stairs to the second floor. The rooms and bath are small with very little space to put "your stuff" so living small is key. But, the experience is worth a few... More

Great rooms, great staff, very clean and lots of fun. Love the continental breakfast in the diner. We were sorry that we didn't play an instrument. Close to good eats and the steel bridge. This is a great starting off place to explore Door County and a great price.

Holiday Music Hotel got us with it's impeccable, art deco, boutiquey feel and design at a reasonable price, and it did not disappoint. Rooms are very comfy, nothing out of place anywhere, and every amenity of a big chain, with stylish feel. Thanks, MJ!

The room super clean!!!! The staff just rocked!!!! Priced perfectly. Definitely brought back the era of yesterday. No frills but felt comfortable like it was home. If in the area again would be a must stay.
