Holiday Music Motel

I ran across the Holiday Music Motel a couple of years ago after we started exploring more unique lodging, but we didn't get a chance to stay there until this month.
Located in Door County's Sturgeon Bay, WI, the motel was built in the 1950s and underwent renovation in 2008.
As we checked in, we were greeted by a wall of Route 66 photos and a cheerful front desk clerk who told us our room featured original 50s furniture.
The beds were upgraded and comfy, but the desk, nightstand and chair were indeed vintage and quite attractive with their green and white motif.
The bathroom had what appeared to be original tile and an appropriate-era wall sink, but everything was tidy and clean.
The main floor rooms were pet friendly and the second floor was for pet free guests. Being on the main floor with our dog, we did occasionally hear footsteps above, but not so much that it was bothersome.
I got a kick out of the counter style continental breakfast room with the low vinyl-topped stools. The breakfast room housed serve yourself coffee, cereals, pastries and fruit.
The motel even features live entertainment on the lawn, which we unfortunately were not on site for.
