We stay here every year now when we come up for our Door County weekend (and for the Door County Century). We really like this hotel. It is a modest refurb. on an older property. Well kept up, but don't expect the plastic touches of the expensive hotels in the area. Look for nostalgia and 70's in the decor, for good if smallish rooms, for a great breakfast bar in the morning. Look for the unique and whimsical decor, all related to the support this hotel brings to the local music scene. Great place to for downtown Sturgeon Bay. There is much that is pricier and finer with boat docks and the like, but the Holiday Music Hotel is always our choice.

I had such a great time visiting the Holiday Music Motel. The room was lovely and the staff was amazing, with such helpful suggestions. The bed was incredibly comfortable and clean. The breakfast was just down the hall and lovely. The best continental breakfast I've ever seen. And the cutest by far. The only thing I'm sad about is that I didn't pick up one of Walter's Dogs. But I'll be back soon, I'm sure!

We stayed at the motel for 3 nights in August. From the moment of check-in to check-out, the staff at Holiday Music Motel was friendly, informative and helpful (young woman with glasses upon check-in provided a lot of great information). The rooms are clean and remodeled to a retro style in keeping true to the motel's origins. There were 4 adults in our party, and we had 2 rooms. One room had 2 queen sized beds, the other had a queen and a full size. We were on the 1st floor. Each room has a flat screen tv, air-conditioning, mini-fridge, blow-dryers and motel provided soap/shampoo in those cool, old-fashioned dispensers. There was still plenty of space in the rooms with all the furniture. The included breakfast was plenty to get our day started - they had coffee/juice/milk/donuts & pastries/cereal, etc. A continental breakfast offering in a neat, retro-style diner area. If you needed anything, you only had to ask - they were more than willing to go out of their way to help you. That included recommendations on town events, dining, etc. I do want to point out that Susan was the desk-person for a couple of nights during our stay. She helped us understand some of the history of Sturgeon Bay, the significance of the bridge, the dark days/songs and how the Holiday Music Motel came into existence. She was a joy to talk to and we were glad to have her company as part of our stay. If you are not the type to appreciate a super-clean, remodeled motel restored to its former glory days, friendly staff and perfect location in Sturgeon Bay, you will not like this place. We will be coming back in the next couple of months - we really appreciated our stay.

Nice theme if 50's is what your into. I personally am into it and really enjoyed the trip back in time. Very clean in general both front of the house and in the rooms. Very comfortable bed and cozy. To bad the noise from upstairs is so distracting and kept we awake for a bit. Overall nice experience and a great way to see the upper part of door county as you are very close to it all.

From the moment we pulled into the parking lot until we pulled out the next day everything was wonderful. Check in was super easy and the young lady was super pleasant. The rooms were basic and very clean. The complementary breakfast was very nice all fresh and served in a cute little diner style. Another really nice thing was how quite it was we were not disturbed overnight by other guests coming and goings. We would definitely stay again.

I tried to stay here in 2013 but there were no vacancies when I needed. This year I booked earlier and got a room. It was like stepping back in a time machine but worked out well.

I loved this place! My girlfriend and I stayed there for one night. The continental breakfast goes until noon, and they serve coffee in mugs with a cute dinner counter. There's art in the hallways, a firepit outside, and cute musical themed lobby. It was close to cute antique shops and restaurants in sturgeon bay. Both front desk clerks were extremely helpful. And, when we forgot items in our refrigerator they held them for us while we were shopping until we came back. Adorable.

My mom and I spent the night here and shared a room. It was a great experience just much smaller than we expected.

If you grew up in the 50s and took road trips with your parents, you'll instantly recognize this place. It's a wonderful step back in time to the small, family-owned motels that dotted the country before the chains drove so many out of business. The room was exceptionally clean. It was small but not cramped. Breakfast was a continental breakfast served in the old dining area where the original counter and stools are still at work. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we're back in the area.

My husband and I stopped here for a night. Everything was absolutely adorable and very clean. Classically retro without feeling old or outdated! Cute little room with a nice set up. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Loved the location too, walked to a lot of local places. The only things that I missed were; having a fan in the bathroom or with the central unit (for white noise at night, we could hear people in the hallway and outside our window) and having a firmer mattress, but that is just me :) Thank you, hope to stop by again!

We stayed at the Holiday music motel for one night in April. The room was VERY clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast offered was very good and a very casual "50's kind of theme. The staff was very helpful and more than willing to offer suggestions for things to do in the area. The location is very convenient to everything in the area. park your car and walk to everything in the area. We did not get to check out the recording studio that is in the motel, but in the lobby area, there are all kinds of instruments that are there to use and play. We will probably go back again when the weather is nicer and check out more of the door county area.

As a small group of female photographers making a winter trip to Door County to photograph the snowy shores of Lake Michigan we wanted to stay in an economical and well located hotel for our weekend outing. We were looking for clean and comfortable accommodations but did not need the resort amenities. The Holiday Music Hotel was perfect for us. It is a quirky venue with a guitar lined lobby that looked more like a living room from the good old days. The silver tinseled Christmas tree gave it that "Christmas Story" feeling. The little diner complete with bright green stools (originals from 1952) and counter was perfect for us. We were able to help ourselves and felt like we were right at home. The original fifties era Simmons furniture decorating our hotel rooms was really fun as well. Even better the hotel was clean, the beds were so comfortable, and the staff was warm and welcoming. They were helpful and even checked to be sure we were okay when we laughed a bit too loud with our door open. If you are looking for a basic venue with a twist this is the place for you. We really enjoyed it.

The musical nostalgia, history and story of the Holiday Music Motel made for a very relaxing and enjoyable mid-winter visit. The bed was very firm and bedding very comfortable. The self serve breakfast bar/community kitchen was well stocked and had local items. The streaming steelbridgeradio.com in the breakfast seating area and lobby featuring music recorded at Holiday Music Motel and by Save the Bridge Festival performers was cool. The staff was extremely friendly, attentive to evey need as well as knowedgable and willing to pass along and share stories, history of the music recorded on premise. Would definitely recommend to others and look forward to returning.

Our stay was a pleasant change from the usual busy/noisy pace of Door County. Granted, it is "off season", but we visited on New Years Eve and were very pleased with our experience. The room was clean and comfortable, and the bed was VERY cozy. Like sleeping on a cloud. We were traveling with our young son, and the hotel was very welcoming. We were also impressed in the morning during breakfast. The diner was awesome, but I guess our one year old son did not agree, as he was not too keen on staying by us and enjoying breakfast. The staff at the desk quickly assisted and provided him with crayons and paper, and showed him the instruments under the tree in the lobby. The staff truly cares about their guests and made sure we were happy during our stay. I did notice that previous reviews stated that noise was an issue, but we did not notice any noise at all. There was even a very large party at the hotel across the street, and it didn't bother us one bit. Perfect stay at a very comfortable location.

The Holiday Music was recommended to us and we're glad it was! Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, good price, located in the center of town. This is not a fancy resort, just a place to stay, which is all I look for. I would definitely stay here again. (I rated the dining a 5-star, but there is none available on the property--just free pastry and coffee in the morning).

Warm, friendly, and helpful owners and staff; fantastic style; fun and interesting stuff everywhere. The really excellent music, recorded on-site, playing all the time was a very special touch. We loved this place from the lobby, to the dinette, to our room. The location was perfect for walks, shopping, and meals. It was everything I wanted it to be and then some. That won't be my last stay at the Holiday Motel. It's even fun to say.

The location, room, service was great. The history and what the musicians have done needs to be put on the walls of the halls and out where everybody can enjoy and appreciate the fact that this is a great place and needs to be a must stay for anyone in the area

The Holiday Music Motel is unique. It has everything you need in a motel: clean rooms, comfortable beds, pillows, and chairs, bathroom amenities, breakfast, and a reasonable price. But it has put its own stamp on things. The rooms are not only comfortable and clean, but furnished with vintage 1950s furniture that is in perfect condition. Breakfast is the basic continental, but you are encouraged to use the vintage breakfast bar to fix whatever else you might want (and, in our case, to turn on the coffee if you get up before everyone else). The "desk clerk" who checks you in might just be a talented musician featured in cds and videos made at the motel. Which brings up the only drawback to the Holiday Music Motel--periodically the place is booked full of musicians gathered by the owners for songwriting purposes, so you need to plan ahead to make sure it is open to civilians. Oh, and pets are allowed. Those who don't travel much may not appreciate how special this place is. They should stay in a generic room in a chain motel and leave the Holiday Music Motel for those of us who recognize its worth. We count ourselves lucky to have found it.

Everything was pleasurable about this establishment, keeping in mind that it is not a five-star hotel on the waterfront. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room and bathroom, while not large, were interestingly (retro) decorated and very clean. The bed was quite comfortable. The climate control worked well, and the room was very quiet during a three-weeknight visit. I particularly appreciated the wall-mounted dispensers with soap, shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom. The Wi-Fi signal was strong. My room was on the second floor, which I highly recommend. The continental-style breakfast displayed a great deal of variety, from boiled eggs to fruit to bagels and pastries. The coffee and other beverages were good. The motel's location is very convenient to Third Avenue, the main shopping street of downtown Sturgeon Bay. Everything there is within strolling distance, and a number of attractions and good restaurants on the other side of the ship canal are easily reached by walking or driving over the old steel bridge nearby. I'd gladly return to this establishment. For my purposes, it was a good base for exploring the rest of Door County over the course of three days.

Our group of friends (couples) booked 3 rooms at the Holiday Music Motel on the first Saturday in Dec. We were delighted with the service we received from Melanie, which included indulging in our group pic (complete with instruments that had around in the lobby area) and some great recommendations for restaurants and bars within walking distance. The furnishings in the room were retro and cool and the room was clean and fresh smelling. As other reviews I'd read have mentioned, this is not a swanky place. What it is is cool, affordable, hip and friendly. Dig? We did and would definitely go back. We didn't get a chance to check out the little "diner nook" that was tucked away for the continental breakfast, we opted for Mel's, but there were items (fruit) left out for snacking even during the aft/eve. Rock on, HMM, rock on.

I have stayed at the Holiday Music Motel several times and every time the staff has very friendly and helpful. When you arrive they make you feel welcome and when you leave they make you feel like they are truly looking forward to seeing you again. The retro styled rooms are always clean, and neat. The value is fantastic at $50-$60 per night it just can't be beat! Now...In the interest of full disclosure, I've only stayed here during the "off-season" (for deer hunting) so I assume the price goes up for summer. I would also say the the 5 star rating should not be compared to a 5 star rating of a Ritz-Carlton or St. Regis property. That being said, this place is fantastic if your looking for a clean and comfortable place to lay your head with a great staff to take care of you. I look forward to staying here again and again in the years to come.

Located just two blocks from the "Main Street" of Sturgeon Bay, 3rd Avenue, the Holiday Music Motel allows easy access to many of the great shops and restaurants of this quaint town. Furthermore, being located in the heart of Door County, the Motel allows for ease in traveling to any of the parks, vineyards, beaches, and other towns dotting the peninsula. Beyond the atmosphere and ease of the Motel, its cause is worthwhile enough to patronize. Seeking to bring live music and the arts to the community as well as visitors, the Motel hosts several live music events a year, encouraging song writing and expression as well as advocating for greater musical education. That's something you can't find in any of the hotels/resorts in the area!

My wife and I could not have been happier with our stay at the Holiday Music Motel. Yes, the rooms are on the small side compared to your typical modern hotel room, but these are not your typical rooms. Funky, well preserved 1950's furniture and fixtures throughout -- it's like a trip back in time. I travel a lot and there are two things that really, really irritate me about hotels: when rooms are not properly cleaned and being able to hear noises from the hallway and neighboring rooms. Our room was SPOTLESSLY clean in every way. Not one stray hair in the tub/shower (seriously, I always check). I had read reviews saying the motel was noisy and I was concerned about that, but I didn't hear a thing all night long, even Friday night when the place was fully booked. The bed (queen size in our case) was extremely comfortable. And the price per night -- what a deal!! The television was small, but we didn't really have it on much except to watch the news, so no big deal. Finally, the staff was so friendly and helpful! This was our first trip to the area and everyone was eager to give us tips about where to eat, what to see, and how to get there. It's a quick walk to the restaurants and shops on 3rd St. Thanks Holiday Music Motel, we love you guys!

Our stay met our expectations and we would stay again. The Holiday is an older establishment but very clean. Just the basics, no frills, no thrills. Staff are very welcoming and very friendly. We were staying only one night, so this worked out very well for us. One thing I would do next time, if possible, is stay in a room on the other side of the hotel. There is a large hotel and banquet facility across the street and late night revelers were quite loud.

Our first review, but my wife and I have stayed here many times over the last few years. There is no pool, no bar, and no fitness room, but if you're like us and rarely if ever have the time or inclination to take advantage of these amenities when offered, then the Holiday is for you. Simply put, the only time we ever stay anywhere else in Door County is when the the Holiday is full. Absolutely the best!

The management & staff are so very friendly. All areas are clean. Very cute rooms & breakfast area. Coffee is exceptional! Not much counter space in the room & no ironing board or in-room coffee maker but very wonderful place to stay. We will definitely stay there again. Week-ends are booked up several months ahead, so book early. We had to stay elsewhere on the week-end & here during the week. We highly recommend this motel.

Rooms were exceptionally clean! It was like walking into a time warp with a flat screen television and a refrigerator! Great location! The morning breakfast bar area is self service but it is handled very well by the staff. Where else are you going to get your choice of cereal, fresh fruit, oatmeal, milk, orange juice, bagels and donuts to start your day included! Teresa at the front desk and everyone we met all weekend long were exceptionally friendly and accomodating! We loved our stay at the Holiday Music Motel and we will be back.

We really enjoyed are stay at the Holiday Music Motel. Clean, spacious room, with a very comfortable king size bed and a new flat panel TV. Very nice space for relaxing after a day of golf and seeing Door County sites. Dinner and breakfast restaurant recommendations were spot on. We'll definitely be back.

It was everything that I expected - clean retro-styled room (bright green walls, 50's styled furniture), comfortable bed, nice breakfast area (self-serve with very simple options), nice staff, located blocks away from downtown (and the art famer's market) and a block from the Sturgeon Bay bridges - and all great. The Discount for being a AAA member brought the total under $100 (including taxes) made this also a very reasonable choice. Would I stay again - yes. Would I recommend it to friends - yes.

Aside from the yahoos loudly watching a Packers preseason game next door, it is a great place. Our "historic" room had been restored to 1950's splendor. The staff is fantastic. It was a real surprise to have paved road right outside of the main entrance that runs almost to Egg Harbor. It was a great bike ride. I really want to return for a concert. Follow them on Facebook!

Our whole family was very taken with the decor - very much like 1953 except much cleaner, more comfortable beds and without the cigarette hangover in the rooms. The staff is unfailingly engaging and helpful. We loved helping ourselves at the breakfast counter and the many conversations with the people we met over coffee. Lots of families when we were there, seemed they all had musical connections of some kind. Oh - and loved the dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower. Something usually only found in places way up the price scale.

We chose this hotel based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. I have to say the description was completely accurate. That being said, the room was a little smaller than we expected and the walls are SUPER thin. So, you may want to bring or purchase a fan or sound machine if noise bothers you. The location is perfect for walking to shops, parks, restaurants, etc... The dining/kitchen area is very quaint with an adequate selection of fruit, cereal, bagels, pastries, juice and coffee. All in all, if you are looking for a charming, clean, well-kept hotel, this will fit the bill. The price is great.

Excellent customer service. Helpful getting us directions to various places, recommending places to eat, making fish boil reservations. Quiet. Nice relaxing outdoor seating. This hotel is doing a great job of trying to leave a smaller eco footprint - recycling containers in room, soap dispensers on the wall so 1/10th used bars of soap don't get thrown away! Recommended to all. We were so pleased with our stay here, and felt we got an exceptional value, best price for very comfortable surroundings and great people. Unique retro decor, clean, convenient location. Thank you to the staff for all your help while we were there! Our first stay, but won't be our last! We'll look to stay here whenever we come back to Door County.

My husband and I spent one night at the HMM, and enjoyed the retro vibe. The owners have struck a comfortable balance between 50s-60s decor with modern comforts (like a smallish flat screen TV in the room.) Our room on the 2nd floor was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Everything in the bathroom worked fine, but lacked a countertop to spread out cosmetics - the only downside of keeping it authentic to the era. Appreciated the location with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Friendly staff. Free breakfast includes bagels, fruit, cereal, coffee and juice. A good value, and something fun and different from the chain hotels.

a gem! the owners have done a perfect job of restoring and restyling a classic '50's motel with added contemporary comforts. the Holiday Music Motel looks great and everything you need is there : immaculately clean, helpful and friendly staff, fast WiFi, pet friendly. a great place to stay for anyone; an amazing place to stay if you also appreciate mid-century modern design.

This is an adorable hotel. And more than that, it's affordable and clean. Rooms are small as you would expect...like living in a 60s dollhouse. I dare you to take a chance on this hotel. You won't be disappointed. (The only thing I was disappointed about is that they ran out of coffee cups for purchase; I'm always looking for a good "weekend" coffee cup.) I'm not sure I could stay here a whole week because the bathrooms are so small and there's not a lot of room to move around (although my make up and lotions fit just fine behind the medicine cabinet). But there was a refrigerator, so if you did stay awhile, there is a place for your beer. And I got the smallest room (a queen), so there are larger rooms I'm sure. Breakfast had plenty to offer and the coffee was good. WiFi access was superb. I would stay here again. (I read in the room booklet they take dogs, though I didn't see any.)

We stayed here on a Saturday night. We were going to a concert in Fish Creek and were looking for an inexpensive option that also didn't require us to stay more than one night. Read some reviews for this place and decided to give a shot. So glad we did! Loved the retro accommodations. Loved that the art in the hallway was original works for sale. Loved that we got a decent little continental breakfast included! The place was clean and quirky. The staff was friendly. The vibe was chill. And it has a great location in Sturgeon Bay where you can walk to many shops and restaurants. One of the best values I've ever found anywhere. This is the 5th place I've stayed in Door County, and the only one I know I will absolutely go back to (because unlike most other places, I can actually afford to)!

Very nice people, very clean, simple room, definitely worth the price. The staff and owners are very nice and it is a great location. Funky decor with clean room and sheets. It was noisy though, with the person on the floor above making a racket and walking back and forth for 2 hours starting at 5 AM, with the floor squeaking endlessly - they should supply ear plugs! The bed was too soft, woke up with a backache. It was very nice that they allowed dogs, but not allowed to keep them in the room alone.

We stayed at the Holiday Music Motel over a busy holiday weekend. Our King room was very comfortable, and extremely, extremely clean (as were all the public areas). Everyone on the staff we encountered was very friendly and helpful. Walls are a little thin, but the atmosphere in the hotel was quiet so this did not pose a problem even though the hotel was full. Just in case, the hotel thoughtfully provides disposable ear plugs in the vanity, but even a light sleeper like me never needed them. We loved the vintage furniture and decor. What a nice break from cookie-cutter hotels and B&Bs!

Had a very nice time. This started as "just find a place for Friday night" as a launching place for a weekend in Door County. I didn't expect it to become the highlight. Motel management was super-friendly, and I brought my rare rectangular cello for Melanie to try. The room was so retro-cool and the bed was very comfortable. I'm looking forward to a second visit and just stay all weekend. Highly recommend!

We stayed for 4 nights during my best friend's wedding. We also used the studio area as a doing hair and makeup room. Melanie Jane could not have been nicer or more accommodating. She went above and beyond to assure that we had everything we needed, she even put flowers in the room for the bridal party. It was awesome. The room we stayed in was really cute. I love the retro furniture and the fact that there was no bible in the room- it's the little things. :-) The only issue was the noise from the breakfast area. That said, there were earplugs provided for guests in the nightstand. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks, Melanie Jane, for being so awesome!
