I have stayed at the Holiday Music Motel many times and have always found it to be a fantastic value for the price. This is an eclectic, "retro" motel. It is very clean and comfortable, has a great "diner" with excellent coffee available all day, and a complimentary, serve yourself, breakfast. It is also very quiet! I have never been... More

If you like music, outstanding staff, and that 50's vibe, this is the place. Nice beds, and a 50's diner for breakfast, "Perfect"! Lots of entertainment in the area, Wedesday open mike nite is outstanding, Thursdays Writers nite is great for listening to new music. Just ask M.J. at the desk, where to go, all are within walking distance from... More

Am always skeptical when I have to stay at a place which has the word motel attached to it. But this one was clean! It had a very welcoming homely feel and the staff were very pleasant. And I loved the breakfast extended hours.

As 50 somethings, my wife & I found this hotel wonderfully nostalgic. The decor in this hotel is completely 50's & 60's from the lobby to our room. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and our room was very clean and very comfortable. It's a smaller place but we found that part of it's appeal. Upon entering our room, I... More

My wife and I came here for a weekend get away and were extremely impressed with the cleanliness and how everything "worked". Most motels/hotels have something broken in the room just because of the wear and tear which these properties receive but here, everything was perfect! Breakfast which was included in the room price was all good, all fresh. We... More

The term "motel" is not usually one that draws customers. Don't miss this motel! What a unique 1950 retro experience! No, the rooms are not as spacious as the chain hotels, but this place is clean, solid, well kept, and unique. The new bed and comfortable bedding was great. The coffee is good with real half and half! The1950s ambiance... More

I will try to focus my comments based on the previous reviews. First, I agree with most of the reviews. I found the beds to be just fine. The breakfast hours are very generous. It's best to avoid a crowd since access to much of the food is behind a counter with a single aisle. It's one-way traffic. It is... More

We visited Door County Wisconsin in November which is out of season. Still a wonderful time to visit, take in the county and state parks, many places are still open on weekends. Perfect destination for a long relaxing weekend. We drove one coast each day and came back to our home base each night. The guests and staff were very... More

What a cute little place! Was greeted by a friendly person behind the counter who got us into our room long before check-in. The room was cozy, and the music theme is what really gives this place it's charm. Would love to come back sometime during one of their many on-site music festivals! We'll be back here for sure...great location... More
