Decor is retro but neat. Beds were okay, too hard for us and pillows were way too soft, bring your own. Room and hotel were very clean. Breakfast was good but the coffee was terrible, we ended up walking to a nearby coffee house instead. The location in Sturgeon Bay was great, we walked downtown and to the water easily...

Thank you for your candid review! We are sorry that you found the beds too hard. They are brand new mattresses and we, too, were concerned whether people would like them or not but 99% of everyone we talk to--and we ask our guests on a regular basis--LOVES them! Even unsolicited, people are asking what kind of mattresses they are...

This place is worth the rave reviews. It is a regular motel with a twist. The furniture is comfortable, and authentic fifties. It is a lot of fun. The beds and comfortable, rooms are a decent size, it is centrally located and not too noisy. A cereal and toast breakfast is included. Service is great. I would recommend this place...

This hotel takes you back in time. It's decorated like 1950's or 60's. The rooms are decorated very cute. The staff was very friendly. If you like music you will like this hotel. Each room has a story to it.

Although I typically stay in a pet friendly chain accommodation I decided to follow the recommendations of other travelers and stay at Holiday Music Motel. Cleanliness is a top priority for me and this met my expectations. Pet friendly, but no dog smell like in other rooms we've booked. I appreciated the wall mounted soap, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers, the...

A cute 1950's designed motel. Staff was very friendly. Room was small and clean and decorated in 1950's furniture. It is a very nice not conventional motel. We were not able to stay for the breakfast at 7 am because we needed to leave at 6 am but we were invited to use the toaster and coffee maker for our...

A great find! This place has all the amenities we needed and wanted (breakfast, fridge in the room, free wi-fi, hair dryer, ironing board) with a fantasic retro decor. The room was super clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was within walking distance to many things.

We spent two nights in Sturgeon Bay and found the best place to stay! The rooms are lovely and the staff was super friendly. Thank you for letting us stay there! The motel is located in downtown, shops, restaurants and pubs can easily be reached by foot.

We decided to try a non-chain hotel. As we drove into Sturgeon Bay, and crossed the bridge, to our immediate left was a little hotel sign."Holiday Motel' also goes by the name of "Holiday Music Motel'. We booked only one night, just to be certain we would like the little bouquet hotel. We were so pleased! First, it is 1/2...

The 50s feel is awesome and while it takes you back in time, it's clean and not dingy, smelly or deteriorating. The room is small but accomodated our needs as we really only slept and got ready in the morning there. I would stay here again. The information history card on the bed was a nice touch!
