Holmberg House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 6 Norman B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We stayed at Holmberg House and received the best customer service from Gene & Lou. The food that Lou cooked was delicious for breakfast and generous. Our Cottage-was clean and exactly what we needed for an overnight stay. The thing that took them from good to great however was-after leaving my purse in the cottage they actually delivered it to my house! Customer service is their specialty!

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage that backed up to the alley of campus corner-so expect some music from the...

Needing a place to stay near OU to see a dance performance on campus, Holmberg House was the perfect location. We met my daughter and walked to one of her favorite restaurants and then on to the theatre. Lou and Gene were gracious and accommodating, even inviting my daughter to join us since the room sleeps three. The Holmberg House has a peaceful, pleasant atmosphere. Breakfast was individually cooked, unlike some larger B&Bs I've stayed in; no warmed up casseroles here! The living areas have shining hand crafted woodwork and are impeccably clean. Comfortable beds, pretty décor, large bathroom, and plenty of closet space. The only problem was the noise, but as soon as we turned on the A/C fan we slept well. Who knew the train went through Norman all night?

This is The Place To Stay in Norman, and we will return.

We recently stayed at the Holmberg house during a Winter storm in Norman. We needed a place within walking distance to campus. We were fortunate that Kelly could accomodate us. As the caring owner of this nifty inn, she pampered us with beautifully appointed quarters and the most delicious hot breakfasts, served in her lovely dining room. It felt not so much like a hotel stay, more like being welcomed and made comfortable by a great member of the family who happens to have a really nice home. As much as I'd love to keep Holmberg house a secret, I feel everyone should know about this wonderful lodging option when visiting OU.

We were passing through and didn't get to spend a lot of time, but enjoyed it while we were there. After passing through a huge porch, you walk into a living room with great wood, even the stairs.

Our rooms were on the second floor. The bed was heavenly and each room had a flat screen tv. Both rooms had private baths.Great bathroom amenities as well.

The host was a substitute but very gracious. The breakfast started out with fresh berries followed by waffles with a special pecan syrup. All of our requests were met without hesitation.

Location: it is just down the street from OU, making it very convenient. I would stay here again in a minute.

Husband and I stayed in the cottage, friends stayed in a room inside the house. We all had a wonderful stay. The owner is a wonderful cook and super friendly. The location couldn't be better - so close to College Corner, everything you could need is within walking distance.
