Two of us are on tour through Wisconsin and th U.P., this is by far the best lodging we've had for our modest budget yet. An emersive oasis in 1950's functional aesthetic and character, run by thoughtful and caring people with the touch of an artist. This is the first place we've stayed where we haven't turned on the TV... More

My wife and I just stayed at this motel this past weekend and we loved it! We stayed in their largest room, a king suite. Comfortable king bed, a table and 2 chairs. hutch-desk with chair and mirror and a lounge chair, flat screen TV, small refrigerator and microwave. A lot of charm including the decorations, colors, pictures, original room... More

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!

Oh my goodness! How I wish people would let us know when there's a problem!!! More often than not, we can correct that kind problem very quickly... but we need to know that there's a problem before we can intervene to correct it. Yes, we admit that soundproofing is an issue here but normal conversation should not be disruptive and... More

We had a wonderful stay with MelanieJane, mom & pat at their 50's retro motel & music studio. we felt like family. From the comfort of the room to the breakfast area we felt very nostalgic. Loved it.***************

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
