The term "motel" is not usually one that draws customers. Don't miss this motel! What a unique 1950 retro experience! No, the rooms are not as spacious as the chain hotels, but this place is clean, solid, well kept, and unique. The new bed and comfortable bedding was great. The coffee is good with real half and half! The1950s ambiance...

I don't go to Door County every year , but when I do ... HOLIDAY MUSIC MOTEL ! is my destination. Between enjoying quality time with the people and staff and great ambiance of the fantastic 50s decor , I tour the friendly city of Sturgeon Bay and love to take a stroll across the GREAT STEEL BRIDGE !

I will try to focus my comments based on the previous reviews. First, I agree with most of the reviews. I found the beds to be just fine. The breakfast hours are very generous. It's best to avoid a crowd since access to much of the food is behind a counter with a single aisle. It's one-way traffic. It is...

We visited Door County Wisconsin in November which is out of season. Still a wonderful time to visit, take in the county and state parks, many places are still open on weekends. Perfect destination for a long relaxing weekend. We drove one coast each day and came back to our home base each night. The guests and staff were very...

What a cute little place! Was greeted by a friendly person behind the counter who got us into our room long before check-in. The room was cozy, and the music theme is what really gives this place it's charm. Would love to come back sometime during one of their many on-site music festivals! We'll be back here for sure...great location...

We stayed here for 1 night but really do wish it could have been for 2 or 3 nights. The theme is straight from the 50's, including original Simmons dressers and cabinets. Comfortable bed and bedding. Clean room and bathroom. Despite the retro theme, there are some modern amenities; good Wi-Fi, and plenty of tv channels, if you are looking...

This little motel is a real "blast from the past". My folks had a small motel in Wisconsin when I was a youngster and I found lots of similarities! The staff here is great and location is perfect for getting around Sturgeon Bay - within easy walking distance of shops, breweries, etc. The motel itself has activities to enjoy and...

Done up to a TEE in mid-century (the 50's) but all was not good back then because the rooms were SMALL. This place is almost perfect in its execution and detail. It is also quality as in soap dispensers, not bars of soap or little tiny bottles or tubes, but dispensers on the wall. Breakfast is sparse, but will do....

Everything that is good about a motel can be found here. First and foremost, the motel was clean and spotless. Secondly, the employees and owner are very nice. I also need to mention that the place was very quiet at night even with every room occupied. Location was also great! This motel exceeded my expectations in every way. You rock!!

Decor is retro but neat. Beds were okay, too hard for us and pillows were way too soft, bring your own. Room and hotel were very clean. Breakfast was good but the coffee was terrible, we ended up walking to a nearby coffee house instead. The location in Sturgeon Bay was great, we walked downtown and to the water easily...

Thank you for your candid review! We are sorry that you found the beds too hard. They are brand new mattresses and we, too, were concerned whether people would like them or not but 99% of everyone we talk to--and we ask our guests on a regular basis--LOVES them! Even unsolicited, people are asking what kind of mattresses they are...
