Super cute room with Simmons furniture. The room was impeccably clean. The bed was comfortable and of obvious high quality. Excellent location for exploring Door County. There was a small fire in the fire-pit every evening to lounge by after a day of walking. We will stay again!

With no previous knowledge of Door County, I booked a room in this motel for a "Girls' Sightseeing Adventure". So glad I did! Décor is mid-century modern vintage so don't expect large rooms, big TVs, glamorous bathrooms or expansive breakfasts. You will get a small, super clean room, small TV, small frig, and plenty of hot water for a great... More

We used to live in Sturgeon Bay, and we watched when this motel was being restored. So what a treat to actually stay there and to see what they've done with the place! We spent the night at this motel right after the Steel Bridge Festival, so I figured things might be a little disorganized. I was wrong. Everything was... More

What a fun little quirky motel in Sturgeon Bay. We recently stayed there one night on our way up to Ephraim.The room was very basic and met our needs. Being an older building I thought we would hear noise between the rooms. We only heard a little creaking in the floor from the people above us, but it was minor.... More

We had a weekend getaway from Chicago and chose to come up to Door County. When I searched for a place to stay, nearly every room was booked at every hotel. We really wanted to stay at Holiday Music Motel based on the many reviews we read, and because we have a sixteen year old who loves everything retro. I... More

We stayed here for two nights with our family. The room and hotel are unbelievably spotless, the service was fantastic and staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our beds were also very comfortable. We would highly recommend checking this place out. As someone else reviewed it is retro NOT out-dated and has wonderfully restored features with modern amenities.

We arrived early to Door County, so we decided to check to see if our room was ready. Since it wasn't, we spoke to the lady at the front desk about places to visit. She was very pleasant to talk to, friendly, and had amazing suggestions for us. We stayed on the first floor and heard an occasional creek from... More

We stayed here Friday and Saturday night. No detail left is to chance here and simple, thoughtful details make for an exceptional stay. The staff is friendly, approachable and professional. Every square inch is super clean, and we loved the clean, authentic retro styling. You can hang out in the lobby or at the diner-inspired breakfast area and be social,... More

This was my second time staying at Holiday Music Motel. It was quite a bit busier than my stay last year but it did not disappoint. My friend and I stayed three nights and it was wonderful! Those beds are like sleeping on soft, fluffy clouds. My bed at home is more firm for the back - no problems at... More

After reading reviews in TripAdvisor, I could choose no other hotel in Sturgeon Bay at which to stay. And I wasn't disappointed! A 50s-style, upgraded hotel, very conveniently located within a few blocks of the historic part of town. Reasonably priced, delightful staff, comfortable and quiet rooms. Memorable in all important respects.
