SUPER CLEAN and and cute. Really close to the harbor which had a great walking path. Also, really close to downtown which had a great brewery, bar and Corner Cafe. We loved the 50's retro feel and would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We very much appreciate the simple, clean rooms. To us, THAT is comfortable, not fancy over priced cookie cutter decor. Staff is very accommodating to all person's needs. (We saw a comment in a review that breakfast is not available til 7am, but they most certainly will prepare what you need if you request it - to us the bonus...

First with the positives... this hotel is very clean and the staff is very nice. Now with the things that were not my cup of tea.... I am not a fan of the retro 50's theme.. or the ugly green paint in the rooms. They do not have an elevator. The breakfast does not open until 7:00 a.m... which does...

What a pleasant surprise we had at the Holiday Music Hotel. The rate was very reasonable, the room was modern and well-furnished, the location is great, and the music theme was really fun. We sometimes experience disappointment when we shop for hotels based on price, but this time there were absolutely no disappointments. It is a fun, clean, convenient, reasonably...

From the moment we arrived, it was apparent we would like the Holiday Music Hotel. The Christmas Tree in the Foyer (This was September) gave us a clue to the quirky nature of things and the receptionist said it was "Always the holidays at the Holiday Music Hotel". My eye was taken by the new looking dial up telephone on...

What a wonderful surprise to stumble upon this 50's style motel. We were skeptical about reserving due to the late notice and lack of research of the area for last minute accommodations. Friendly and knowledgeable staff (Jennifer) made us feel right at home. Rooms were themed right down to the transistor radios and dial telephone! We had a fun time...

Spent 2 nights, and we would definitely stay here again. Dog-friendly rooms available. Location is very good / across the street from Stone Harbor / where you can walk the waterfront. 2 blocks / 5 min walk puts you on 3rd, where you can walk either way. Many restaurants / shops / visitor center within 5 min walk of the...

This property is dated but that is part of it's charm. The staff was helpful in providing info on things to do and giving directions on how to get to places in Door Co. There was room to walk our little dog. A quiet restful place. We would stay there again.

Friendly staff and a cute breakfast area. Fun place to stay with good sized rooms. Half block from the harbor where there is a tiki bar on the water with lots of water traffic. Close to a brewery in a very nice downtown area. It is only two bock away. Great job on recreating the retro look.
