Although this hotel is centrally located in Solvang, there are other better options. The elevator is awaiting a part that must be manufactured. Check this as the two flights up to most rooms is unpleasant at the end of a day's travel. There is no in room ice or coffee service. The rooms are small and ours was very shabby... More

I have stayed here a few times throughout the years and during previous visits, had a more enjoyable experience. In the past, they had complimentary wine and cheese at 5 o'clock with entertainment and the restaurant was open for dinner. They had a very good continental breakfast. This last visit most of that was gone. While the wine and cheese... More

Stayed one night thru a living social deal that included 3 wine vouchers. Since we came in early, our room wasn't ready yet but let us know we could pick up our wine tasting vouchers and offered directions & a map. The service definitely made this stay amazing. Didn't spend too much time in the actual hotel, but it was... More

Good location in Solvang, needs some restoration. The toiletseat was broken and it was dusty at places in the room. The best experience was the breakfast with 5 Star service from a mexican woman ( don"t know name). Loved the Danish bakerys in the lobby in the morning.

Our family has been staying at the Petersen Village Inn for over 25 years and it is with great sadness that this will be the last time we stay there. Because they are getting ready for a major renovation of the Inn they have let the condition of the Inn get to the point where it is terrible. The Inn... More

We spent a comfortable night at Petersen's and enjoyed our spacious, clean room with antique furnishings, quaint and homey, which I associate with Solvang's old country charm that is well preserved over the years and luckily unchanged. The central location is convenient; our room did face busy Mission Dr but closing the windows muffled most of the noise. The buffet... More

This is an authentic wooden structure built to fit the style of Scandinavia and Solvang. May be it is a historic landmark of Solvang, it is definitely located on the main street right in the middle of everything. It is designed as a fairy tale. The narrow hallways, the dim lights, palaces to keep everything quiet, even the fixtures in... More

Petersen Inn is a mixed bag, but overall we had a very nice time. Located very close to Solvang’s central shopping and dining district, so you can leave your car in the lot and walk. There’s parking right next to the building, or you can use the motel’s underground parking structure if you want to protect your car from the... More

When in Solvang we usually stay at the Hadsten House. Since they were booked we stayed here and we were all pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very clean, beds comfortable and bathrooms were nice. Very out dated wallpaper on the walls, but overall nice. The front desk was very courteous. The continental breakfast looked nice, but we chose to pass... More

Loved this hotel. nice period room in walking distance to the main stretch of shops. Bonus of vouchers for local wine tasting meant that we were soon sozzled. Breakfast was a nice selection of cold foods that met our needs. great place.
