We stayed at the hotel in early August. I fell down the stairs in our guest room as a result of a very loose stair railing. The owner was rude and they have refused any liablity. Stay at your own risk. If you get injured don't expect the owner to return calls, express concern or demonstrate any courtesy. Will never... More

Rented the "Loft" room and it has more than enough room. Came up here for business, but wife and daughter tagged along for a mini vacation. Everything is clean and the breakfast was great. When we come up here again, we will most likely stay here. I hear that the loft rooms facing the park are even bigger with balconies!... More

We have stayed in Solvang each year for the past 5 years and this was the best place for the value by far. Very clean rooms, good beds, newly redone bathrooms and a good breakfast that is included. We have found our home! We will be back next year and every year after!! The staff was very helpful and moved... More

Decent room at decent price. Nothing luxurious but clean and smell free! Great breakfast, not just cold milk and cereal. Only thing is I wish I had read the reviews here and asked for room facing away from the street. We stayed in the room facing the street and traffic noise was little loud. Othere than that everyone was happy.... More

The Holiday Inn Express had great prices for a one night stay. The location is close to everything without having to be on top of everything. The room and bathroom were very comfortable with a large private patio. We weren't far from the breakfast and pool area which was nice. We'd stay here again but most likely skip the free... More

We were expecting "Okay" but found it "Great!" The room was spacious, very clean, service was wonderful, the breakfast had lots to offer, and the location is perfect. The TV was even an updated flat-screen. All of this plus it was a very good mid-week value.

Comfortable room and beds with microwave, fridge, private balcony (not all rooms) and excellent breakfast. Easy access to Solvang. Best Danish breakfast was at the Danish Cafe--original recipe for waffles! Best Danish dinner was at Bit o' Denmark. Excellent meal, but pricey was Angelica's Cafe. I highly recommend the Solvag Theater and it sPCPA productions. Be prepared for cold weather... More

This hotel was just delightful. I got a room on the 3rd floor & facing the mountains, as requested. Front desk very helpful & friendly. Room was small but clean & had all the amenities. Lots of hot water in the shower. The carpet did have a quarter-sized hole in it and the toilet did not flush properly but these... More

Get room at the back of hotel, they have mountain views and you won't get main road noise. Front desk clerk can give you nice one page map of town listing shops, restaurants, etc..

I stayed here for one night in June and it was everything I would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. I had a nice room, facing to the back of the hotel, with a balcony which I was able to site on and enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the birdsong. The room was clean, the bathroom was... More
