Their highly competitive rates, attention to detail, friendly staff and unbeatable location makes The Holiday a prime destination for your lodging experience. With a 4.5 rating out of 5 on TripAdvisor, The Holiday Music Motel prides themselves in offering a unique lodging experience by providing all the modern comforts and amenities while retaining its 50s charm. The Holiday Music Motel was Door County's first-ever motel, opening its doors within only a couple of months previous to the 'Holiday Inn' franchise. Other historical highlights of the motel include original Simmons furniture in all the rooms, original tiling and fixtures, classic breakfast-nook 50s style diner, the iconic Holiday Motel Neon sign at the edge of the motor pool lot, original classic white stucco exterior with red awnings, and more... To add to the historical charm, the motel is seated at the foot of the recently saved Michigan Street Steel Bridge (the inspiration for the annual Steel Bridge SongFest, held each June). Owned and run by a group of musicians and music enthusiasts, in addition to being a one of the area's most loved lodging destinations, the motel has also become a songwriting destination and home-away-from-home for musicians and performers passing through Door County. The motel also boasts an in-house recording studio that has produced 100s of songs most of which can be found on various collections of CDs available for sale through the motel website!

Off the charts! Clean enough to accommodate my OCD for cleanliness. Warm and friendly staff. Comfortable bed and atmosphere. A good cup of coffee, OJ, and light breakfast in a 1950s diner. Perfect location. All this for a fraction of a Door County stay. We'll be back. Thank you Holiday Music Motel. Sue and John in Fond du Lac

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.
