This hotel provided everything we needed for our visit to Solvang and the surrounding area. The room was very clean and had one of the most comfortable beds we've ever had at a hotel. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was wonderful. We were within walking distance of everything in Solvang and the free parking was under the building,... More

We loved this hotel. Perfect location for a pleasant stroll in to Solvang, with many cafes and restaurants nearby. We had a large clean room, (room 136) nicely decorated, good quiet air-con and very fast free WiFi. Flat screen TV, iron and board and hair dryer. The shower was great. Its not technically a power shower, but as near as... More

This hotel is tired and needs updating, and is obviously mainly doing business as a result of tour parties and older visitors to Solvang. As a younger couple, it didn't do much for us in terms of the decor both public and private. The room needs updating and some time spending on the general ambience - it was very dark... More

We have come to depend upon Holiday Inn Express for its good service, free parking, quiet rooms, cleanliness, and better than average free hot breakfasts. The one in Solvang met all our expectations. The hotel is conveniently located at the edge of town on the main street. Actually it provided everything we wanted for our comfort.

We stayed for one night at this hotel. Is located on the outskirts of beautiful solvang, walking distance to everything there is to do at solvang. The facility is old and outdated but it is clean and the beds are confortable. The AC rumbled like a freight liner going down a hill!! The breakfast it's acceptable but very few choices.

We chose this hotel based on availability: normally we stay somewhere closer to the center of Solvang. It was a typical HI, same rooms, same free breakfast, good matresses. There was covered parking, but not many spaces and we did see hotel employees using the same lot. Staff was pleasant when spoken to, but no one at reception greeted anyone... More

This hotel is located on the western side of Solvang, easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and bakeries. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and clean. It offers free breakfast (HIE standard), and has a small pool. But stay here for the balconies. The rooms facing northwest, away from the road, have amazing balcony spaces.
