"Receiving the Chairman's Award from Best Western is not an easy task and is a tremendous honor," said third-generation owner Chris Holland-Mehlhaff. "Our management and team members work hard to achieve and to maintain this level of excellence.". 

In 2008, they completed an extensive room renovation project at Holland House that included completely renovating all décor in 22 rooms, installing granite countertops and updating bedding in all rooms by replacing bedspreads with modern turn down throws, creating new Studio Bunk Bed Rooms, installing 32-inch flat panel HDTV's and DVD players, adding clock radios with MP3 connections, and more.

"Guest feedback about the new modern décor has been fantastic," Holland-Mehlhaff said.
