This place is quaint but that fits the town so how can you complain. The front desk staff was very helpful after a reservation mix up (my fault) and we enjoyed or stay. Good location that is within walking distance to many of the town's attractions.

Our recent stay at the Petersen Village Inn was quite distressful. The location of the hotel is great. After I complained loudly and clearly on this site, they responded with grace. But I want to warn you, that they are in the process of remodeling and most of the rooms are in desperate need of remodeling. When it is completed,... More

Over 20 years ago, we chose this hotel - a package deal with dinner, theater, and wine-tasting included - and it was... nice. No pool. But nice. Then whenever we'd go back to Solvang (for the theaterfest - or wine tasting packages - or just walking around) we would look for hotels and they'd raised their prices beyond reasonable. We've...

Solvang is a precious town! There are many hotels to choose from but they all pretty much look the same but NOT the Peterson. The rooms are original, comfortable and clean. I love the luxury bath products - mmm! We had a balcony which added to the unique feel of the property. My husband and I walked around the property... More

We had a great visit in Solvang, much thanks to Petersen Village. The location was right in the center of town, the rooms were large, clean and they had the best hotel toiletries I've ever had at a hotel (seriously, awesome shampoo). It is within walking distance of the center of town and even though its on the main drag,... More

My family took a trip up the coast recently. We were booked to stay at another inn in Solvang, but when we got there, the rooms were not suitable for our family. We stopped by Petersen Village Inn and secured the last three rooms. The rooms were very clean and were perfect for a family with 4 children as we... More

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...
