What a cute little motel, easy to find, so near the water, pet friendly, super comfy beds, very vintage 50,s furniture in the rooms and the décor is really fun! Made our own breakfast each morning in the little "diner" that was located just off the lobby. Friendly help, great destination motel.

Stayed: October 2017

I happened upon the Holiday Music Motel online when looking for a spot to stay overnight for a recent business trip. I was a little leery because I typically stay at one of the bigger chain hotels. However, the mid-range options in the area aren't spectacular, and this place seemed to be a lot closer to restaurants and such than other hotels. I read many reviews and decided to take the chance. I am very glad I did!

For a person who spends a lot of nights in hotels, this was a very welcome break from the typical bland hotel decor. If you travel a lot, you know what I mean. It was just nice to look at something other than beige walls and blah artwork. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the location can't be beat. I don't have photos to include, but will say the rooms look exactly as pictured on their website and in other recent reviews.

The management is very friendly and eager to help. I loved the binder with detailed info about the area and restaurant menus. Also, as a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and at ease at the hotel and on my walk to/from dinner.

I didn't take advantage of the breakfast since I'd brought something of my own to eat quickly in my room. However, I did visit the diner area to get ice and it looked very clean and well-kept.

I have already raved about this spot to my family and friends. I will certainly stay here again if in the area for business or pleasure!

My friend and I stayed at this hotel and weren't sure what to expect. The retro decor was so much fun to look at. There are quiet hours since the walls are thin. The only noise issue we had was the person in the room walking back and forth above us for a little bit. Breakfast was served in a diner type room. The owner made sure that everything was kept full. The hotel is only a couple of blocks away from the main street. It's in a location that's easy to stores and restaurants. I would stay here again, and have recommended the place to family and friends already.

This motel is so quaint, with extremely comfy beds and super clean! Love the decor, it truly feels like you have stepped back in time! Great location , within walking distance of the bridge, shopping , bars and restaurants. If you are visiting door county area, this is the place to stay! Love Sturgeon Bay as it is not as "touristy" as the other communities, yet you are close enough to drive for a visit if you choose.

We never did spend the night, we had to leave before we could. But I wanted to offer a couple thoughts. Teresa at the front counter is an extremely friendly, personable, and helpful person. She will take good care of you! And the hotel is just as advertised by every other review. The rooms are small, only queen beds, the bathrooms a little small and it is an older property. If you like the nostalgia, you will really like this place. If you like a Holiday Inn, then look for a Holiday Inn. Thanks again for working with us in refunding our money!
