Historical Traveler Reviews Holland Hotel Landgoed Hotel Restaurant De Oude Schouw Akkrum
We have stayed at this hotel for several summers... we love it! All the rooms have been recently renovated...it's close to everything...it's not the Taj Mahal but is a good value for hanging at the beach for a week...you could pay more but why?
Good location, that's about all
Stayed here with our granddaughter (11 years old) last summer. She's the one that noticed the mold on the ceiling first. Not much of a continental breakfast. Our rental car got keyed while parked there overnight. But it was fairly close to the beach (good thing since it's pool wasn't much to talk about) which was a good thing. Wouldn't stay there again, unless couldn't find a decent price elsewhere.
Great location Good price!
We have stayed at this beach for 12 years and have found it to be a great deal for the Pacific beach area. The staff has always been friendley and professsional. I would recommend this place for a family if you want to be close to the beach and do not want to spend $200. a night for a hotel room.Close to everyhting and the beach is right across the way.
Bad Service, Ok Rooms
We stayed here in Jan 2004. The room was clean, looked newly remodeled with furniture, paint, walls, carpeting. But, there were no hooks, towel bars, toilet paper holders, closet rods. It got irritating. The desk service was terrible. In the evening the electricity went out. The clerk said, "Don't use so much electricity". It went out again, and after more complaining, they did move us to a different room. I had a friend try to call me, but the desk said I wasn't registered. They spelled the last name wrong! And couldn't even figure it out! Pretty ditzy. The continental breakfast is a coffee pot in the office with some doughnuts and orange juice. The motel is very close to the walkway along the ocean, so that was convenient. We could walk to the store and to a few eating places. The maid service was excellent, no complaints. For the price, I'm not sure how much more you can expect.
Dirty, smelly, smoky, noisy rooms. Old mattresses and furniture laying around outside the rooms. Staff was surly and uncooperative. Worst stay at any motel/hotel ever! Beware!
Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in!!!
Disregard the review from the guy who said it was a great deal - his standards must be incredibly low! This hotel was totally overpriced, dirty, noisy and mildewed, just to name a few things. It needs to be completely restored. The inital exterior as you drive up looks nice, but once you step inside the "lobby" the same smell of pee is readily apparent. We had one washcloth for three people at checkin, asked for more and were told they were all out and we would get them the next day. The next day we came back to our room after maid service to find NO washcloths. The sliding door to the window was stuck shut, the screen door was broken and off the track, the room was stuffy and the a/c didn't do anything to improve it. STAY AWAY!!!!!
Ya know, for the price and the room, this is a great buy. The location is awesome (75 feet to the ocean) The service is friendly, and it stores your stuff when you're running all over San Diego. I mean, if you travel just to stay in your room the entire time, you have serious social problems. I spent 6 hours per day in my room. Yep, that's the time it took me to sleep and recover from my hangover each day. What else do you need? If you want to stay at a resort, then this is not your place. But if you don't want to spend a fortune, check them out!
We checked into our room and the smell of urine hit us in the face. The room reeked and was filthy!
We were transfered to another room which was not much better, plus we were told we could only have it for two days. Don't stay here.
Please don't ever stay in this hotel...
If you want to enjoy yourself in San Diego, don't stay here. It is close to the beach, only about half a small block. It's not worth it! Pay more money and stay someplace else. Our room had no air conditioning and no heating. It was smelly and damp. The controls to the air conditioner had been removed. We're guessing to save money on electricity. The front office said they didn't know what had happened to them. Also, the room was lit with 2 watt light bulbs, making a dingy place seem like a cave. The worst part was the bed. It sagged very badly in the middle. They had placed boards under the mattress, but they didn't help. They only stuck out so you would stub your toe on them if you got up at night. Even if you think you can stay here because you'll only sleep at night and spend the rest of the time at the beach, don't do it.
The hotel itself isn't terrible, but the surrounding area is noisy, crowded and full, full, FULL of traffic! Parking is difficult if not impossible. We quickly moved to the Island Palm on Shelter Island for a much more relaxing couple of nights at not much more money.

... to being super excited. It will be hard for a while. But once I start on my adventures, I wont have time to think about anything else. In addition to the nerves, I am still trying to take care of last minute details over email which isn't the easiest thing to do. Hopefully everything will come together before I get on the shuttle to the ship tomorrow.

... I am in the San Diego area. Wayne and Linda Woods, friends of my mom from their college days at the University of Wyoming, have graciously allowed me a crashing place in the backyard pool house. And yes a soak in the pool was first on my list of things to do and boy did it help relieve some of my saddle soreness. I have met Wayne and Linda just one other time before today (making them just sort of strangers) but they didn't hesitate to ...
... to see everything, at the beginning of the day when we got in the gates we tried to look over the map and see all the things we wanted to see and skip all the others. Overall the San Diego zoo wasn't as good as I was expecting, I'm not sure if it's because I had high expectations of it being the best in the world but I didn't agree and was a little underwhelmed. Some of the enclosures made it hard to see the animals which ...
