The hotel is within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in Solvang, and the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We were pleased with the cleanliness of the room we stayed in - the hotel is an older one, but we appreciated the effort the staff put in to maintaining it. We stayed in a... More

The hotel is located at the edge of town, which is an ideal location, as Solvang is a small quaint town that can be enjoyed by foot without having to drive at all. There is plenty of parking within this facility. (both indoor & outdoor) Their front desk clerk Jessica gave us excellent service, that made our stay so much... More

The Hotel is located a short 5-10min walk to the heart of town with plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops to look at. A simple market store is located across the road suppling basic grocery goods and alcohol. The Hotel room was clean and spacious with a deck to enjoy the sunset.

Our room was very large and the beds were comfortable. The décor and room seemed a little tired with need of updating and some fresh paint.

We only stayed for 2 days but overall the hotel was very nice. It was right in the center of the town, giving easy access to the shops and attractions by walking. The breakfast also had a great and satisfying variety of food. This hotel is highly recommended

Stayed here in July 2014. The room was nice and clean. Quite spacious with a comfortable king bed. Shower was good. Breakfast is free and with eggs, sausages, pancakes, cereals, oats, pastries, especially I loved the fresh cinnamon rolls. There is parking available in the basement for the guests and also laundry facility. Recommended!
