Great "motel" in the heart of Sturgeon Bay! Funky 50' motive and awesome owner who is just as funky and fun as you would expect. Impromptu concerts, year round Christmas Tree and retro furnished room make the Holiday Music Motel a must visit at least once!

Holiday Music Hotel is delightful. Clean, organized, customer friendly, free parking and wifi plus terrific decor! After spending the previous two nights in bleach-drenched chain motels, I was grateful to stay in a room without any obvious odor -- just clean. Price is more than fair. Great location. Don't miss out on a great experience.

Clean room, retro furnishings, small and very quaint motel. I am a traveler that prefers a place to sleep and spend my time doing business and exploring the area. This is the perfect place for me! The beds are great and our room was very quiet.

Roughly 45-minutes north of Green Bay - easy to find, ample parking - easy check-in/check-out. The location is right over the Sturgeon Bay bridge - walking distance to the waterfront or downtown areas. The owner or manager lives on-site. We were in room 229 - right at the top of the stairs. We didn't hear noise from others - there...

SUPER CLEAN and and cute. Really close to the harbor which had a great walking path. Also, really close to downtown which had a great brewery, bar and Corner Cafe. We loved the 50's retro feel and would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We very much appreciate the simple, clean rooms. To us, THAT is comfortable, not fancy over priced cookie cutter decor. Staff is very accommodating to all person's needs. (We saw a comment in a review that breakfast is not available til 7am, but they most certainly will prepare what you need if you request it - to us the bonus...

First with the positives... this hotel is very clean and the staff is very nice. Now with the things that were not my cup of tea.... I am not a fan of the retro 50's theme.. or the ugly green paint in the rooms. They do not have an elevator. The breakfast does not open until 7:00 a.m... which does...

What a pleasant surprise we had at the Holiday Music Hotel. The rate was very reasonable, the room was modern and well-furnished, the location is great, and the music theme was really fun. We sometimes experience disappointment when we shop for hotels based on price, but this time there were absolutely no disappointments. It is a fun, clean, convenient, reasonably...
