About

Located in beautiful, historic, downtown Sturgeon Bay, the Holiday Music Motel is within walking distance of the scenic waterfront, stores, restaurants, and budding live-music nightlife. Built in 1952, this "retro-vated" boutique motel features Simmons plush-top mattresses, high-quality bedding, Free Wireless Internet, Cable TV, picnic area on front lawn, complimentary continental breakfast, pet-friendly rooms (on 1st floor upon managers approval only) and more. 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, original 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).

Quaint and charming

4.6 on August 19, 2015

This was a great find! The beds were the most comfortable we've experienced at any hotel B & B, the owners/staff were very present and personable, and the location was great. We got excellent advice about area restaurants, enjoyed the charm of this place and appreciated the extreme cleanliness of the Holiday Hotel. Continental Breakfast is provided, and we found it an entertaining experience. The hotel has a little kitchen and guests are invited to wander through, help themselves and prepare what they wish. We were part of a large group, so were tripping all over each other - but laughing and appreciating this as part of the charm of the place.

Staff is super friendly and helpful, suggesting the Neil Young tribute band concert in the park a few blocks away, which was simply awesome.


Excellent people!

Very well kept rooms and friendly knowledgeable people with plenty of suggestions of what to do. Even specific to that time of the year :D


Surprising accommodations!

3.8 on June 10, 2015

Tried this motel out of curiosity and were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and comfortable. The decor was fitting. We particularly liked that staying at the motel supported the local music scene.


Always a treat

Whenever we're in the Sturgeon Bay area, we make a point to stay at the Holiday Music Motel. The service is exemplary, the rooms cozy and fun, they serve a lovely continental breakfast, and the staff and owners are always friendly and willing to chat. Perhaps my favorite thing about the Holiday Music Motel is that they are a local business who work with local vendors, play (and record!) local music, promote local attractions, and are always striving to make personal connections with their guests and their community.


Fabulous!
