Business Trip

My overall experience at this hotel was positive and I do recommend it because of its value. Also, the staff was very friendly. Pros: -bed was actually comfortable (I believe it was a pillow top) -clean room -friendly staff -room had a refrigerator -reasonably priced -room had clean towels and blankets -room was well kept and clean Cons: -pillows were too thick and uncomfortable (bring your own) -room didn't have a full kitchen (I travel a lot for work and prefer one, if this isn't an issue for you ignore this) -room was poorly insulated and the sound of cars passing-by could be heard all night -hotel isn't really close to any stores to shop at

Fine decent for the price.

There was enough room, and the room was clean and comfortable enough. Be aware that (at the time, at least), there weren't really any on-site eating options. The continental breakfast is very limited, and didn't offer anything we would normally eat.

Auld Holland Inn

Very basic accomodations, the two star rating pretty much sums it up. Room was clean and the employee who checked us in was super nice. I was only there to spend the night and this fit that need.

Needs some sprucing up

Cute older roadside hotel. Rooms need some updating, as well as the plumbing. Turned on bath water faucet and got brown water for a few minutes before it cleared. Antique chairs in room were cute but not functional. It looked like the room hadn't been used in a while as it was dusty. Mattress needed to be flipped or replaced due to a large hump in the middle of it. A/C unit needs to be replaced or repaired as it only stayed on for a little bit and then would turn off, and being in an upstairs room it got a bit too warm for a good nights sleep. Loved the Oak Harbor area and will be back, but not to this hotel.

Great Value, Quiet, Clean, But...

We were really pleasantly surprised at the value of this place. It was a very quiet room (except for the fighter jets flying over from the air base nearby) and very clean. I thought the cleaning staff did a great job on our room when we were gone during the day. The building is old, but seemed to function well. They have a no smoking policy in all the rooms and you're supposed to be 25 feet away from the building if smoking (per WA public smoking laws) and they let you know that on check-in, but then they have benches and ashtray containers with sand in them right outside the rooms on the balcony. This seemed weird. The only real bummer about this place was the manager/owner woman who was at the front desk and loudly correcting and shaming her staff (who were women of color). This lady seems like she'd be horrible to work for and it was inappropriate and made a negative atmosphere. Time for hospitality training, not to mention managerial training.

Auld Holland Inn

The staff was particularly nice and helpful. Hotel is very inexpensive, so don't expect 4 star accommodations or amenities. But it was comfortable and clean and an excellent value for the price. Highway noise was noticeable, but not terrible.

Don't Respect Privacy Concerns

When checking in, they asked to make a copy of my driver's license, and said that this was a new policy. I refused and said I did not authorize this. I had stayed at this hotel recently, and my information would still be in the system. I showed my license, but the hotel has no business making a copy of my driver's license. This shows a lack of trust, and it's like being treated like a criminal. I had already paid by Visa through a booking agency. The manager this evening accepted this and the fact that my information was already in her system. She said she'd make a note so they would not ask for a copy of my license again. I tried to stay the next night, but another manager this time told me that I could not stay there unless she could copy my driver's license. I explained that I had stayed there before, and that my information was in her system. She said unless I let her copy my driver's license, I couldn't stay there. So I left and will never use this hotel again. No law requires US domestic travelers to carry photo ID, and with concerns about privacy and identity theft, I think this is unacceptable. Are they expecting a fire? The story the hotel manager gave was that they would need my ID to identify my body in case of a fire. No thanks. This is not a very pleasing cover story. It's their benefit perhaps, but it's not good for me and my principles. This is America and one doesn't like to feel that one has to have "traveling papers" to stay in a hotel! The hotel is an old hotel that needs updating. It would be acceptable if you can get a very reasonable rate on the room and they didn't demand a copy of one's driver's license that is against many thinking and more cautious people's principles.

Not our favorite place to stay

Ok, finding a motel on Memorial Day weekend on Whidbey Island is not an easy thing to do. Would we stay at Auld Holland Inn again? No. Would we recommend it to our friends? Probably not.
