Very clean and friendly. Nice and quiet and affordable. We will be staying here in the future for sure. Really enjoyed the stay and the retro decor is way cool. Very comfortable and familiar feeling. Kinda like being away but still at home.

Don’t judge by the outside appearance. The rooms are very clean and the 50’s decor is cute. The beds very comfortable as well. Was impressed with how quiet it was being it was located near a busy road.

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!

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 *****+
