Despite its forbidding exterior, and bizarre location right at the mouth of the Holland Tunnel into Manhattan, the Holland is a pleasant, efficiently-maintained motel. You know the type: generic furnishings, generic painting of flowers on the wall, small bathroom. But a warm welcome, included breakfast and friendly staff making up for its lack of character. It’s about a 10-minute walk from the PATH train and you’ll be walking through a mall for five of those minutes.
