This place was first built in the 70s and they are just getting around to upgrading the rooms. The lobby and restaurant are very old fashioned, wood paneling, top drawer feeling. We were upgraded twice and ended up in a very large 3rd floor room with a balcony and a really nice view. Can't say enough about the friendliness of... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Petersen Village Inn for a wedding in the area and I was disappointed in the room. My biggest complaint is that the courtyard view room was incredibly dark. I had to do my hair and makeup in the lobby bathroom, which actually didn't have great light either, but it was better than our room.... More

I bought a Livingsocial voucher offer for the Petersen Villiage inn, September 12th. I called them today to make a reservation to be told that they are completely booked out on Friday and Saturday from now until the Voucher expired - the best they could offer is a Room on Dec 5th, but I'd have to pay an additional upgrade...

This was a lovely hotel very well placed in the centre of things. The young lady that checked us in was very helpful and friendly. The room was very cosy. It did need some upgrading but it still had charm. The breakfast was a little basic but enough. We would definatly. Stay here again.

I love this hotel. I stayed here when they had dinner with the price of the room. But alas the Grand Old Lady has fallen to the presence of Weight Rooms, Swimming Pools, In room refrigerators, microwaves and coffee pots. Return with me to a simpler time when a hotel room was just that. Well appointed, clean and a comfortable... More

We were very disappointed. The elevators are closed, the room was shabby, wallpaper peeling off the walls, the comforter was dingy, the carpets were worn, there was no dresser for clothes, the TV was on a table that looked like it had been moved from the hallway, and the photos in no way represent the real rooms. The only bright... More

We were so disappointed with our room here! Do not stay in the garden room! It looked like a beautiful hotel from the website, but when we got to our room, it was so not like the pictures. First, it was so cold in there when we arrived and we couldn't find the controls. When we finally found it, they... More

The hotel is nice and well-maintained. It was comfortable enough. The staff was nice and the young Lady who checked us in had a great sense of humor and was a pleasure to work with. It is in the center of Solvang and within walking distance to pretty much everything. It is a little pricey though for what you get.

We stayed in a Courtyard View room on the 3rd floor. It was very quiet, with no traffic noise at all. The room was large & included a couch, chair and large tv. The bathroom included items from L'Occitane, which is really, really nice stuff! The queen bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked great. We will definitely stay... More

We have stayed at the Petersen off and on over 27 years. It is the only place we stay in Solvang. I like how pretty the rooms are, how quiet it is. My husband particularly likes the breakfasts - which is simple but with good pastries. It is always a comfortable place to stay. Staff is very helpful and the... More
