I was in charge of a group on a tour that included an overnight in Solvang. The Holiday Inn Express gave us a very good group rate that was within our budget. Lisa Walter, in group reservations, was extremely accommodating and helpful. Check-in was a breeze as keys were ready in advance according to our rooming list. The rooms were... More

Room is acceptable but very average. Nice to have fridge and microwave and bed fairly comfortable. Bathroom needs updating. Building itself is old, dark, musty. Interesting pancake maker at breakfast. I used points which only has standard room option. Was with my wife and 18 year old nephew and knew it was quiet Monday in off season, so thought I... More

Dear Guest, I am very sorry for your experience. I quite simply do not understand as upgrading members is a common we practice for us here at Holiday Inn Express. I also apologize, that I was not contacted about this situation. Staff is instructed to telephone me if there is anything they are unsure how to handle. When assigning rooms... More

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
