Seriously. This place is a rip off. Here's why: *Expensive crap internet -- $9.99 for normal internet, $12.99 for faster internet. #scam *No microwave in rooms -- my boyfriend had to go downstairs and charm the front desk ladies into letting him use their microwave after I called downstairs asking about where the microwave is in the first place and...

Checking in was a breeze! Thank you Yolanda! Yolanda gave us a little background on what there is to enjoy in the area. We arrived a little ahead of the official check in time & it was not a problem in fact we were pleasantly surprised to have gotten an upgrade to a suite. (Thank you again Yolanda!! How was... More

I should have read the reviews on TripAdvisor first! The first surprise was that breakfast was not included NOR was wifi. I think this is a bit odd when you are paying $329 a night. Our room was okay, but there were no cups for the coffee and only one soap in the bathroom. We had to share the soap... More

The Pros: good complimentary breakfast, very courteous service, nice amenities. The Cons: I've stayed there twice and nothing has changed, the rooms are run down and dirty. The bathroom was almost unusable because of a filthy bathtub and filthy floor tiles. Overall the room was aged in decor and should cost around $99 - $120 per night, NOT $230. On... More

The hotel is nicely situated for the area but is very outdated and worn. However, they are starting a major renovation which should be great. The restaurant has a excellent breakfast with great service but don't go there for dinner - not good. Look forward to the improvements!

The stay was comfortable. The hotel is clean. The location is decent and easy to get to from the highway. Issues that I had: 1. The breakfast is good but very expensive. 2. Service at breakfast was slow (Especially slow for the price). 3. The pillows on the bed were mostly flat. 4. My room faced the highway (the property... More

I only stayed here for the points I get since I'm a Marriott card holder, otherwise, I won't be staying here. If you're visiting Solvang, find a hotel within the area so you don't have to find parking and drive back to this hotel. The biggest drawback is the lack of cellphone coverage in this hotel. I have AT&T and... More

Definitely needs updating so think nightly rates should reflect the situation, but does not. All in all the rooms are comfy and bathrooms are more than adequate. Sign in lobby says hotel is in the process of renovating but did not see any signs of that happening. Staff is ok, pool is rather small for size of the hotel but... More

I thought this hotel was over priced for what it offered. It needs a revamp. It could be lovely but looks very tired with bingo hall carpets and the room we were in seemed a little ymca. The pool is nice and there is a fire pit. Breakfast was OK. To be honest if you can get a room I... More
