About

Located in beautiful, historic, downtown Sturgeon Bay, the Holiday Music Motel is within walking distance of the best shops, restaurants, and budding live-music nightlife Sturgeon Bay has to offer. Built in 1952, this "retro-vated" boutique motel features pillow-top mattresses, high-quality bedding, Free Wireless Internet, Cable TV, picnic area on front lawn, complimentary continental breakfast, pet-friendly rooms 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 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!

Nice 50's retro

4.2 on August 21, 2014

Very cool throw back to simpler times. No dining at the motel but many places to choose from within the town of Sturgeon Bay.


Pleasant Surprise

5 on August 19, 2014

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.


We'll be back when looking for a hotel to spend the night in Sturgeon Bay

4.6 on August 19, 2014

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. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The included continental breakfast was better than what one finds in most hotels. My daughter savored the very fresh multigrain bagel she had.


Beds

Holiday Music Motel

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.


Overnight Fun spot

4.0 on July 21, 2014

The hotel is very well preserved and true to the times, except for the modern conveniences like air conditioning--thank you! Great service, very friendly and helpful. Just one suggestion. Need more hooks or shelves in the bathroom to hang towels and put toiletries. :)


Good value for money

3.8 on July 21, 2014

Nice little B&B, right in the heart of Sturgeon Bay. We spent 2 nights during the 4th of July weekend. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good in the morning. No complaints.


Always a nice stay
