We spent 3 nights in September and loved the place. If you like retro and funky this is the place. very clean and comfortable rooms, great location for walking everywhere, cost effective and breakfast in cafe is included! The staff are very friendly, helpful and down to earth. We would stay there again!

Headed to Door County over Thanksgiving to get away and unwind. This place was perfect for that, we really enjoyed the cool retro vibe and the friendly staff. Our room (237) had a king sized bed (super comfy, the best sleep ever away from home), microwave and fridge with a sink/counter area that was perfect if you want to make... More

We booked the inn for a three-night stay involving a Packers game, dining and shopping. We saw the awesome Bears slaughterand had some great meals and shopping, even though some places were closed for the season. The inn was old but we loved the charm of it. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Location was perfect... More

I read that there was a music component to this place...but I did not realize what a fun place it would be! They have a building next door to the motel where song writers present their new works! We were invited in Oct 2014 to this "song night". . What talented people... The motel closes down 3x a year to... More

This place is great! It's an older place with older decor, but it's a place to stay to support the local music scene if you love music. The staff was wonderful and gave a great recommendation for a local restaurant. The value and price was amazing! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great place to stay in Door... More

I have stayed here several times, always great! I come up here twice a year for business. The staff is always very friendly. The décor is retro 50s. Very cool. The free breakfast is very good, feels like having a meal at home.

The Holiday Music Motel is a funky, friendly alternative to many of the touristy places in Door County. The establishment is known for its music-themed environment (its owners are actively involved in the arts and have rock music careers as part of their resumes, and Jackson Browne is a financial partner). But what really sets apart the motel is the... More

This motel is comfortable, clean and funky. Decor is fun, breakfast is basic (cereal, bagels, pastries, toast) but more than adequate. When it's time for dinner or drinks, do not go to the hotel/resort across the street by the bay. Service is absolutely dreadful and I had two servers who were both rude. Food is overpriced, uninspired and shockingly does... More

Stayed at the Holiday Motel in Sturgeon Bay, WI and loved the experience. The quirky 50’s theme was great throughout the motel. The lobby and breakfast area were throwbacks to times gone by. The room décor was retro, but functional. The rooms were small and the bed not the most comfortable, but the décor made up for these shortcomings. It... More

We stayed at the Holiday Music in late September 2014 and found it to be very nice. It was our first time in Door County and we wanted to have a centrally located hotel from which to explore. The hotel has a quaint 50's decor. The rooms were very clean and the bed comfortable. We also found the staff to... More
