Stayed six nights. Great location in the heart of Solvang. Ample covered parking. The staff was welcoming, cheery and helpful. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Awesome shower! The mattress was the most comfortable we ever slept on including our own at home. Great expended breakfast. There is always coffee available in the lobby and in the afternoon there... More

Sometimes Holiday Inn Express locations do the trick. This was not one of those times. Lines at the front desk were long, and service was poor. Room was reasonably clean, but little things like a sink that backs up and drains slowly. I wish I'd paid more and stayed at a nicer place.

We had a terrific stay at this hotel! The room was large and bright, and clean. It had the most comfortable mattress of our entire trip. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. We were immediately made to feel right at home. This hotel is a great bargain and worth more than their price I will definitely stay here again.... More

We came up for a couple of days and were pleased with this hotel. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were large, and the breakfast is one step up over the usual chain hotel breakfasts. The TV in the room is small for the size of the room, but we don't really watch TV much, so not a big deal.... More

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
