We found this hotel very comfortable with great bed and other facilities. We only had one night and would have preferred to stay longer to see the town when the shops were open. We would certainly recommend this hotel. We travelled with a large group and as far as I know had no problems. Breakfast was also very good.

This was my second stay at the Holiday Inn in Solvang, Ca. I like it because it is affordable, the rooms are very clean, located at the beginning of town so you can easily walk to shops, restaurants and wineries and the complementary breakfast is better than most. I have already recommend it to a relative!

We stayed here one night and overall were quite impressed by the Hotel. Our room was spacious with a very comfortable bed and was equipped with a fridge and free wi-fi. The only quirk was the fact that the bathroom light was on a timer that had to be turned on entering. This was a bit of a nuisance as... More

Stayed here two night and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was very basic but met all our needs. Good water pressure, mini fridge. sufficient breakfast.

With the abundance of wineries in the Santa Inez Valley, the Holiday Inn Express in Solvang is really hard to beat for a comfortable, well-run retreat after spending your day tasting some of the best wines in Santa Barbara County. The hotel is also within walking distance of some of the best restaurants in town and yet it offers a... More

This hotel is a bit older. However, it is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Very large rooms with very large balconies. Free breakfast each morning. Hotel is on the main drag so you can walk everywhere you need to go.
