“Excellent...highly recommend!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

My husband & I were very impressed with our quiet garden-level room.. The layout of the room was a pleasant surprise. The beds were very comfy and the room was well maintained & clean. The complimentary breakfast was also impressive. The staff was friendly & welcoming...will stay again if in the area.

The staff and the rooms will make you feel as welcome as can be. We stayed for a couple of nights on our mini-Minnesota road trip with our two smaller dogs. The room was super clean and so comfortable. Greta beds and amenities. Has the old style motel outside entrance to the rooms so it was easy with the girls. Had their included breakfast on Saturday AM which wasn’t too bad as those things go. Beautifully maintained landscaping and nicely updated rooms make this the place to stay when traveling in the area.

Room Tip: For a quieter stay, ask for the pool building but away from the pool...ask for room 30, an end unit...

This place is a dump! Nothing but a low-budget roadside motel that hasn't been updated - EVER! The employees are very friendly, but that is the ONLY good thing about this motel. If this is the "best" you can find in Detroit Lakes, then I'd choose another area entirely for my vacation. It is a poor reflection on all of Detroit Lakes.

holland_house_mgmt, Owner at Best Western Plus Holland House, responded to this review, August 8, 2012
Typically we thank reviewers for their feedback, for they help affirm things going well & help us identify opportunities for improvements. However, this mean, vague review makes us question the intentions of the reviewer & whether this person even stayed here. To state, “This is a dump & hasn’t been updated-ever,” is false. As a 3rd generation owner, I attest that we continually re-invest in this property which began as 13 units, has evolved into 56 rooms & will soon celebrate its 60th year! In May, 2012, all Lobby Bldg. rooms re-opened with totally renovated modern décor & new mini-suites (photos on Trip Advisor to verify). 4 years prior, all first floor Waterpark Bldg. rooms were renovated & new Bunk Bed Rooms were created. And, so on…. This award winning property is well appointed with many in-room amenities, an indoor waterslide, plus includes a free full hot breakfast; these far exceed “low budget”. It consistently achieves top % scores w/Best Western for cleanliness, maintenance & service. We apologize if “Our House” did not meet your expectations or needs for your vacation & hope you will choose to visit Detroit Lakes again sometime.

Very clean and well maintained inside and out. Nice and quiet. The staff is very helpful and if your lucky Katie will be there. What a helpful and nice young lady. Great breakfast in the morning.

Excellent value, clean room, great breakfast, front desk staff very friendly and helpful, especially Char, she went over and above anything we had ever experienced before in any hotel. I had forgotten my Best Western rewards card, and she printed out another one for me to have access to the number so I wouldn't have the same problem at another Best Western. I would recommend this facility to anyone in the area. My granddaughter enjoyed the pool immensely.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet.

Everything was excellent! Clean, spacious room, friendly staff, good value. The full breakfast was a pleasant surprise compared to the usual hotel breakfast.

We stayed here for 2 nights, and the kids really had a ball in the pool area. The water slide was closed at the time we decided to swim, but they really had a blast swimming and going from the hot tub into the pool. It was nice to have a pool a little deeper in one end, and still shallow enough for them to play in also. Rooms were a bit dated, but clean and very good for sleeping. We were able to park, and go upstairs with very little trouble. Good breakfast area in the morning, and very friendly staff. I'd stay here again, and suggest it to family and friends as well.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor, over-looking the stream in the back of the Hotel...would pick that room...
