Really old and dated. Low popcorn ceilings, old beat up furniture, dirty windows, smelly drain pipes, small rooms. Kids running around on the floor above all hours of the day and night. Thump, thump, thump all the time. Couldn't wait to get out of there.

We had an excellent stay here. We asked for a quiet room and was not disappointed. The room was away from the road towards the park. Generously large, clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed only one night, the room was large, great king size bed, all the amenities you would expect from a Holiday Inn. Location was the big plus as you could walk to town. Continental breakfast in the morning was more than adequate. While these hotels lack personality, they work, especially for a one night stay

As a IHG Rewards member I have stayed in numerous Holiday Inn Express hotels. This one is much better than the average. Although the room is not overly large it was well appointed, had a lovely view over the H C Andersen's park and had a supremely comfortable bed, the usual flat screen TV, fridge, microwave and coffee maker and...

We arrived at check in time and was disappointed to find we weren't put in a room with a view since it was quiet/empty when we arrived at the hotel. We had booked long in advance and were there at off time (sunday-tuesday). However it wasn't worth the hassle to go ask and try to move rooms. The room had... More

Hello everyone, Kudos to the Holiday Inn Franchise. I've stayed at a number of Holiday Inns several years ago that were not that great and I just thought the brand was going down hill and would stay there. But this was a really nice Holiday Inn. Great rate, great location. The second day I was there, I got a brand... More

This is a nice hotel just a few blocks from the center of town. There is parking under the building and the Solvang Market across the street.

Front desk staff was friendly and welcoming and accommodating when I asked if I could see the room before I made a decision. (I'd been burned earlier!) Layout of hotel is odd. Up the elevator, to an open outdoor area, through a locked door, down the corridor, back outside, through another locked door to the room. Odd but secure. Room... More

Our family of 4 stayed here on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We had a family suite that had 3 queen beds, one of which was upstairs in a loft. It would have been better if there was a separate room with a door that could be closed. In any case, the room was nice, clean and quiet, and the beds... More
