What the owners have done with the Holiday Music Motel is so fun! It could almost be designated a working motel museum. The retro renovation has been very well executed with so many details left as they originally might have been but in a high quality refurbished presentation. The furniture is spot on and in good condition. We felt right at home in aqua tile bathroom. The location does not boast any kind of water view or lakeshore, but it is totally convenient for Door County activities. The room was a little small for those of us who travel as 4 people with too much stuff but would work really well for less people. Everything was very clean! Beds were pretty comfy, and it was great to have an easily accessible extra blanket. We enjoyed the real glasses and nice minifridge. One appreciated feature was the central A/C system that was much quieter and more comfortable than the typical wall units usually found in motels. Unfortunately we arrived later than expected and left first thing in the morning, but we enjoyed our stay.

Was amazed at the room cleanliness and the comfort of the pillow top mattress we slept on ! The decor in the lobby and rooms bring back my young adult and teenage memories of my music era growing up ! Melonie the mgmt. lives on premise and runs a tight ship. Everyone wears a mask inside lobby and hallways. Rooms are sanitized between guest's use, and are not available for 24 hours in between guests .You will not beat the rates here anywhere in Door Co.,nor the excellent care taken by Mgmt.
You are in walking distance of the shopping district,Shore fishing, and great dining , especially across the street at the Stone Harbor Resort !
This motel is a little gem in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin ! My rating overall is *****+

A one-night getaway to Door County with my Wife and my Aunt was complete with a night's stay at this motel. Me & and my wife have stayed here previously and it's always been a positive experience. I really enjoy the retro rock vibe of it, and I thought my Aunt would get a real kick out of it, and she did! The rooms have everything you would need (for example, a box fan in the closet). We ended up hanging out in the lobby before dinner playing a card game and it's just a neat place to hang out in and chill. We had a great night sleep, and breakfast was very tasty! The whole dinner vibe/breakfast bar is fun! Me and my wife can't wait to stay there again for our next Sturgeon Bay getaway!

Can’t praise this haven enough‼️ very cool👍✌🏻....I was transported to another, better era‼️ Clean, comfortable, convenient, congenial. The lovely woman who tidied up my room actually FOLDED MY PJ’s next to my pillow‼️‼️ And the extremely pleasant women at the front desk seemed like family. A DEFINITE place to reserve if there’s a fortunate availability‼️🥰

Super clean. Really friendly staff. Excellent housekeeping services. Nice little extras like real coffee cups. Even a wine opener in the room. Super cute cafeteria area downstairs you could eat take out or warm up left overs and they clean the dishes for you. Definitely a retro music theme but well done Excellent location for exploring downtown Sturgeon Bay. Would highly recommend.

Interesting little Motel with a music vibe decor. The rooms are very 50 and 60 retro and very clean. The owner Melanie is such a wonderful lady and helpful in every way. I loved the location especially. Just across the street is public access to a boardwalk or should I say nicely paved dock area for the boats. The perfect place to watch the Sunset on the Bay with plenty of benches to admire the view. Also you can sit and have cocktails or a bite to eat at the cafe outside the beautiful new hotel along the same boardwalk or dock area. Really loved this and so convenient from the Motel just cross the street. I wish I had photos to share of how nice this really is with the water and beautiful views!

We went for the largest room, which has plenty of space. It's a quick walk to restaurants, or there's a food truck on the premises too. The steel bridge is within walking distance, and the Holiday Music Motel is an excellent place to make your base for day trips up into the Door County peninsula, such as Peninsula State Park, Baileys Harbor and the Cana Island Lighthouse, and of course the Sturgeon Bay attractions. The innkeepers have put so much thought into the amenities -- there are even clips to hold the drapes shut for complete darkness if you desire. And the music memorabilia around the motel is fascinating. You can bring your own food and eat at the vintage dining counter, using the motel's homey real dishes and glasses.

Outstanding customer service from the owner's family. We decided to stay here because of the wonderful reviews plus location to the Harbor and downtown Sturgeon Bay. The positive reviews are all correct; actually I don't recall any negative reviews. This place is clean and perfect. The Harbor is across the street and downtown is nearby with quite a few restaurants.

When you first arrive to check in, the reception area is like a museum; loved it. Also, we appreciated the notes placed around the hotel and room to let you know where everything is or how to correctly operate something.....thank you for that.

We will definitely stay here again. This is a very unique hotel at its best; a return to the 50s and 60s and it is not "run down". There even might be some objects in the room or lobby that you have never seen before:)

Saving the best for last; Melaney was the best and so very helpful. Very professional and accommodating. We haven't seen somebody who runs/manages a business this great in many years..... thank you Holiday Music Motel:)

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful motel for the first time this past weekend. I cannot say enough good things about this gem of a place! The vintage decor of the lobby and rooms made me feel like I was experiencing parts of my childhood all over again. Everything had such a fun, nostalgic, comforting vibe! The beds and toilets were modern though, so we were able to enjoy the vintage vibe, but with modern comforts. The room was THE most spotless, clean room we had ever experienced!! I cannot give enough kudos to the housekeeping staff of this motel. The owner of the motel was warm, friendly, and so welcoming to us. She also has an adorable little dog that we enjoyed meeting ("Toad"). This is not the motel to go to if you want an indoor pool, fitness center, or oversized whirlpool tub, as this motel does not offer these amenities. However, if you want a great deal, a sparkling-clean room, a friendly welcome, and everything that you *really* need, this is the place to go. Thank you, Holiday Music Motel, for a great stay. While we are building our home in Sturgeon Bay, you can best believe that we will return. We will also be highly recommending you to others.

Cute and clean!! We chose to stay one night here and are glad that we did! This place has everything! A fire circle outside for a nighttime campfire, a shared dinning area for eating, amazing restored 50s style decor and period furniture in each room. Modern amenities like a tv and fridge in room, along with a hair dryer. Comfortable bed with clean bed linens and nice towels in the bathroom. This place is super close to restaurants/shops and easing walking around sturgeon bay. We can’t wait to stay here again!!!! Bonus 2 food trucks across the street. It was also surprisingly quite!!!
