We have stayed here many times in the past and this stay was as perfect as the prior ones. what can I say, this is a five diamond hotel and it shows it. the service is always excellent, and the staff are always most helpful. The morning breakfast is wonderful, with fresh baked pastries from a shop on the same... More

Rich wood paneling, old-world feel, elegant décor, and charming details throughout. Each room has it's own personality with nice details everywhere you turn. An excellent staff eager to serve. Free early evening wine tasting in the beautiful lobby (check ahead for hours), free coffee and tea service (and ice) brought to your room, a truly excellent free continental breakfast buffet...

Had a pleseant stay here. Staff was super helpful with any request, parking right outside the door that we could stay at after check out. Comfortable room and free wifi, though with a tricky air condition :) All in all a good experience in Solvang.

It was so odd that I recognized that the poor reviews and the excellent reviews I had read on tripadvisor were all true - I just didn't care about the negative stuff. The room is large, had a fold out couch bed with a broken hinge - I just left the thing open. With all the room there was no... More

I enjoy getting the theater package every summer. For a very reasonable price one gets a nice room, theater tickets, gourmet three course dinner and a continental breakfast. A coupon for free wine tasting is also included. It is a very good value!

We stayed here for two nights, since we bought two (1 night each) vouchers from Travelzoo. Each voucher for a one night's stay included wine tasting coupons (3) and a "box of chocolates." We did not receive a box of chocolates, just 3 pieces of white confection. Since we used two Travelzoo vouchers, we should have received "two boxes of... More

I asked for a quiet room and got one. But I hadn’t expected it to be so attractive and appealing, so I was delighted when I walked in. Later I ordered a steak dinner, expecting an okay meal: filet mignon is generally tender but not richly flavorful. This one was one of the very best I can remember. Everything on... More

We used a travel zoo coupon, so the price was great. However, were I to pay full price, I would have felt that the value wasn't there. The staff was friendly, I loved using the L'Occitane products, our room was very large and the canopy bed was fun. Though there was street voice, lots of trucks going by, we didn't... More

I like for hotels to do what they say their going to do, and, while this is petty, they just didn't do what they advertised, and that upsets me. I booked the Petersen Village Inn through Travelzoo for a fairly reasonable price, which was to include vouchers for three wine tastings for two, and a box of chocolates,an added value... More
