I really hesitated to book this hotel although Tripadvisor got great reviews because looked cheap and dirty hotel in pictures. However my family with kids stayed for 2nights while traveling Door County and it was very pleasant and unique staying experience. All decoration are from 1950's. The owner said furnitures are from that era. The staff was super friendly, super... More

Great original 50's decor. Amazed at how well maintained everything was. Friendly helpful staff. Loved the diner! The king sized bed was very comfortable. Very clean. Would give it a 5 if it had a hot tub. Would definitely stay here again!

As advertised this was a unique retro hotel conveniently located a block from 3rd Street (where most of Sturgeon Bay shops, restaurants and bars are located). Staff very friendly and accommodation and we enjoyed the breakfast provided each morning. Will definitely be back!

We stayed here on a Sunday and Monday and it wasn't busy. I just loved the decor. It is very clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is a good location and you can walk to shops and dining. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a 50's counter dining for breakfast. We will definitely stay here again.... More

This is a small independent motel with a retro flair just a hop skip and jump away from the water. There is a small kitchen area that is open all the time at the front of the motel, I snagged a couple much needed after hours bananas, plus coffee and donuts in the morning. The rooms were clean and well... More

Great Place, decorated in original or redone late 50's early 60's decor with modern touches like flat screen TV's and WIFI. If this was Disney's Madmen Hotel in Orlando you would play $250 a night. The rates here in Sturgeon Bay in are much better. Has dog friendly room no first floor though no dogs allowed on beds. Very clean.... More

Definitely a different experience. Brought back a lot of memories of when I was a kid. Loved the xmas tree decorated with memorabilia from that era. Room was very clean. Peach walls with light green tiles in the bathroom. Small cafe was reminiscent of a 50's diner. Staff was very friendly. Hotel is pet friendly but prefer your pets not... More

We found this place online and immediately liked the price and look of the hotel. It's a Cute little retro place in downtown. The room was clean and a little small but it was nice. The breakfast was good but sparse and the room was quiet and very clean.
