My husband and I stayed at the Petersen last weekend with mixed expectations...I must say we were very pleasantly surprised. The gal at the front desk was awesome, efficient, and kind enough to give us an early check-in & our room was in the detached building (think it was 312?).. We had a hidden little balcony which was so cute,... More

This must have been something when it first opened up. Four star styled from the 70's and reminds me a lot of some european hotels. It is older, but the staff were friendly and helpful, it is clean, and the furnishings and bedding are fresh. The location is fantastic, the breakfast tasty, and we enjoyed our stay in room 209....

The Hotel was in a good location in town. Easy walking distance to everything. Prices were fair. However, it is need of some renovation as it's outdated. The bed was not the greatest. Breakfast which was included was decent and the service was good.

Very clean, very outdated. May have been a 4 star in the 1980's but is a 1.5 to 2 star now. $15 each for the breakfast was outrageous, dried cereal, hard boiled eggs, some sliced deli meat. In addition to updating the rooms adding small refrigerators and room safes would be wonderful. There was no safe even at the front... More

My husband and I have returned annually for many years, and always enjoyed our stays. Over the last several years we could see the owners were having difficulty keeping up with maintenance and updates. Yet we really enjoyed seeing the familiar faces of the owners and their dedicated staff. We enjoyed the charm and feel of being in a removed... More

I stay at this hotel every year when I come to town for the Solvang Century (bike ride). Centrally located, very comfortable rooms and the guest service always very attentive. 4 poster beds and rich wood treatment throughout the hotel feels very cozy. No idea about the in house restaurant as we always go to root 246 or Los Olivos... More

This is a very nice hotel but they need to buy some new mattresses & use fabric softener on their sheets. We have stayed there 3 times & their beds are not comfortable (3 different rooms). They either need to buy some better, more expensive sheets or use a good fabric softener. If it wasn't for those two things,I would... More

The hotel couldn't be better located within Solvang. You can walk to everything and there are some great places to eat right across the street. The staff was very nice, the room a little dated yet exceptionally clean and although a lot of reviewers mention the beds being uncomfortable I didn't find that to be the case.
