Detailed Review

Overall Score: 3.9

The Holiday Music Motel invites you to step back in time to when everything had a bit more style. The retro stylings and music theme make this a really fun place to stay. Its convenient location in Sturgeon Bay and affordable prices keep loyal guests coming back.

The Holiday Music Motel was Door County’s first Mid-Century Modern style hotel, of the sort that can be found dotting America’s classic routes like Highway 66. It has been lovingly restored and revamped with a fun music theme.

The Holiday Music Motel even has a recording studio built into it.

The Holiday Music Motel is known not only for its style but also for its cleanliness and hospitality.

But, what really sets it apart is its great location right in downtown Sturgeon Bay, Door County’s only city. At the Holiday Music Motel, you are only steps away from great dining, shopping, the waterfront, and other attractions.

The Holiday Music Motel is light on amenities – no swimming pool, for example. It also doesn’t allow small children. This property isn’t right for every traveling party.

But, it fits the bill for many travelers and is a great budget option.

Here are some of the highlights of the Holiday Music Motel:

  • Cool, retro stylings
  • Fun music theme
  • Pet-friendly
  • Budget friendly
  • Extremely walkable

Location

5.0

See location on map.

One of the best features of the Holiday Music Motel is its location. Right in the heart of Sturgeon Bay, Door County’s only city, it is only steps away from great restaurants, the waterfront, shopping, and other attractions.

Sturgeon Bay has many conveniences that other villages in Northern Door County do not have, as well. But, you are not far from the tourist destinations of Northern Door in Sturgeon Bay, either.

On the other hand, this is a busy area of Door County. Some people might like to be in the heart of Sturgeon Bay’s bustle. Others might appreciate a more secluded hotel.

But, if you desire walkability in a downtown setting, this is a great hotel for you.

The facilities of the Holiday Music Motel really set it apart from lots of other properties in Door County. It is located in a lovingly restored Mid-Century modern building that hearkens back to a time when style mattered.

It also has a really fun decor motif – featuring period furniture pieces and musical themed decorations throughout the building.

It even has a recording studio built into it!

On the other hand, it is light on amenities you expect to find in lots of other Door County hotels. For example, it does not have a swimming pool.

But, if those sorts of things aren’t important to you, the Holiday Music Motel can be a great option for your stay.
