Our bike group stayed at the HIE in Solvang for 5 nights and rode the hills of the Central CA coast. The front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was adequate. The property is a little dated but the location was superb for exploring the town of Solvang and it's many shops and restaurants. The free... More

My husband and I are very into Pinot Noirs therefore we head over to the Santa Rita Hills area quite often. I can't say enough about the friendly staff at the Holiday Inn Express in Solvang. Their rooms are comfortable and clean. They are centrally located to rood restaurants. After a day of wine tasting it's nice to know there's... More

It's an older property, but well kept, free underground parking was a nice bonus. Staff was great! The town is small so you can walk anywhere, no car needed. There are two pancake houses just next door.

Maria is a wonderful front desk staff. With her beaming smile and prompt service, we were checked in without any delays for two rooms. She was always ready to help and advise! The front hot water was empty and she recommended I use the hot water from the breakfast room while she went to swiftly refill the empty flask. All... More

I stayed here for one night and booked 2 rooms for my family. The rate was very expensive probably due to the Mother's day weekend. I had limited interaction with the staff and they seemed courteous and I can't strongly have an opinion to give a yay or nay in a one night stay. They did seem a lilttle understaffed... More

This hotel has a great location, walking distance to the main street shops. The hotel staff is professional but not "friendly". There was none of the usual.. Welcome..Hope you enjoy your stay...pleasantries..they answered our questions but nothing more. This was from each employee. There are cookies on the counter for guests. Our room (King bed) was large but the ceiling... More

This Holiday Inn Express is a good step above others that we have stayed in. The room was spacious, very clean and kept up, and had a balcony that looked out to Hans Christian Anderson Park. The expected breakfast was well stocked with typical HI Express items - yogurt, fruit , cereal, pancakes, coffee. It also had biscuits & gravy,... More

I've stayed here a few times. This hotel is in an excellent location to serve as home base for a wine country adventure. It is your typical holiday inn express complete with breakfast. This property is split into two parts. I've stayed on the south side (where you check in), but not on the north like I did this time.... More

Solvang is a wonderful town and this hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to all the shops, parks and restaurants. We were just there for one night, but want to come back again for a couple of days to also check out wineries in the area. Hotel is very nice and fits in the area. The service was great... More
