“Comparable for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2007

We stayed at the Dutch Colonial Inn as a get away for a weekend. We stayed in the Jenny Lind Suite, which has it's own private bath, king bed and a small jacuzzi tub. The room is decorated with very Victorian pictures, floral wallpaper, and lots of pink, even the toilet is pink!

The inn keepers were very pleasant on arrival and helpful in giving us directions on where to eat. The inn is located about 5 blocks from downtown Holland and is in a quiet residential area. There are many shops and some restaurants that the inn keeper told us about.

We had an OK breakfast, we sat with all the other B&B guests at 9:00 am, and the inn keeper did a prayer before the meal. I am used to more traditional breakfasts, (aka scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage links, or bacon?) and it was very different than what I had expected. I like being able to choose where I eat instead of having to sit altogether at one table. My boyfriend and I both enjoyed the fruit cup at the beginning of the breakfast, but were unimpressed by the rest.

We did have a young child crying in one of the rooms next door, So if you don't want to hear children crying, this B&B does allow small children.

We ended up skipping the breakfast the second morning, we'd rather sleep in :).The actual inn itself is visually an older home, but very pleasant. The floors are a bit creaky, but it the home and furnishings have that old world charm. The common rooms are very nice, and our room was very good, our only complaint was that the water pressure in the shower was very weak, and the jacuzzi tub buttons didn't work quite right.

Overall, for the price that we paid for the room, it's pleasant staff and it's close proximity to downtown Holland, the inn was a good deal.

My wife and I went for the tulip festival. The festival was a bit overated but our stay at the Dutch Colonial Inn was quite refreshing.
The Inn is within walking distance to downtown. The owners are quite gracious. When I mentioned I like de-caf coffee in the morning, they made a caraffe and left it on the common room. Everything was so clean and cozy. The breakfasts were awesome. I would recommend the Inn to anyone staying in the Holland area.

The Dutch Colonial Inn sits just outside of the main downtown Holland strip (a very cute area with great restaurants and shops). The house is in a quiet neighborhood and is beautifully decorated with antiques. It was spotlessly clean.

We stayed in the Tulip Suite, which is a two-story suite. The lower level has a TV, couch and chairs, gas fireplace, and full bath with shower. The upper level loft has a king-sized bed, TV, and full bath with a two-person jacuzzi. The owners have really paid attention to details, making this a very comfortable room and perfect for a romantic weekend. It was rainy and cool when we were there, and we were perfectly happy to stay in and enjoy the room.

There were cookies in our room each day, and there is a common room for guests which has a kitchenette stocked with soda, tea, and some snacks (popcorn).

The breakfasts were quite good: fresh fruit and yogurt to start, a choice of fruit juices, coffee and tea, and fresh-baked coffeecakes and muffins. There was also a hot main course, such as an egg and sausage casserole or pancakes.

The only negative comment I can make about this inn is the habit the innkeepers have of giving a Christian prayer before breakfast every morning. We didn't say anything, not wanting to offend our hosts or make them uncomfortable, but I wonder that they are not concerned about making their guests uncomfortable with this.

we stayed here two or three years ago for our anniversary. Our room was BEAUTIFUL. We initally stayed in a regular room and then switched to the Tulip suite. It's a two story suite (bedroom upstairs). It was GORGEOUS and had a two person jacuzzi tub, very romantic. Great munchies left in the room. Very clean, nicely appointed. THe breakfasts were scrumtous. The hosts were very warm and welcoming. Well worth a stay/visit!!

Bob and Pat are such gracious innkeepers. Their home is beautiful and filled with antiques, the rooms are spacious and the breakfasts huge and delicious! And the chocolate cookies waiting for us in our room in the afternoon was a wonderful touch!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dutch Colonial Inn Bed and Breakfast originated as a family residence. The initial structure, built in 1928, served as a wedding gift for the bride and groom. We offer beautiful guest rooms and elegant suites with king or queen size sleeping accommodations. All rooms have private baths with tiled shower, most with a double jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The inn's wonderful atmosphere is perfect for a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday celebration or just a getaway. Spacious common areas include a delightful wicker-clad sun porch and a living room on the formal side, yet cozy enough to unwind in. Warm weather permitting, the white wooden rockers on the open front porch invite you to relax and rock as the world walks by. Our delicious full breakfast pampers you, yet provides a healthy and hearty homemade feast. Awaken to fresh brewed coffee, the fragrance of homemade muffins, coffeecakes and ham/sausage egg casseroles. Close to beautiful downtown Holland and just a short drive from one of the most beautiful beaches in Michigan. ... more   less
