I was quoted one price on the phone and was charged over this price as well as being charged even more the second night and not being informed of this. And when I brought it to there attention he told me that each night runs at different rates. They weren't very accomidating. The parking accomidations aren't the greatest.

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was extremely courteous, helpful and attentive to the guests. The breakfast was fantastic. The "breakfast cook" was a kick; she set a smile on everyone's face to start the day. You could tell she really enjoyed working at this hotel.

We stayed here for one night and it was great. We got a king size room and it faced the main street. We had no issues with any noises. The only minor complaint I had was that the room was a bit dark. The window was small so it didn't bring in much light into the room. The hotel is... More

Great location. Walking distance to everything in Solvang. Good underground parking. Room was HUGE...I think it might have been a handicap room but it was great. I would only suggest that you try and get a room away from the main street. It gets a little loud. The other side of the hotel has great views of rolling hills. We... More

Great Location, close to downtown. Park your car in the underground parking and try to get a room on the 3rd floor in the back (nice and quiet, open the window) front rooms will have some traffic noice. Great warm breakfast, good coffee. 3 star hotel, explore Solvang in 1/2 a day. MeuterMedia

The price is right for a clean room in Solvang. The staff is helpful and friendly. Nothing fancy but it worked out well for me.

Our second visit to Solvang, this quaint not to be missed small town of Danish heritage. Best to arrive after dark to experience the wow factor, the spectacle of fairy lights and 'gingerbread' properties. It feels like Christmas celebration every day! Most of its accomodation is on a motel style, we prefer hotel and therefore chose Holiday Inn Express with... More

We stayed for two night for a weekend getaway. We got in early and tried to check in and after wating in line the people in front of us were checked in and given water bottles and chocolates. When I approached I was told to come back later. A few hours later I again waited in line and watched as... More

Hotel front desk needs more training in writing clearly. Internet coordinates were illegible. parking is underground. Electrical outlets in room were loose and hard to put plugs in and keep them connected. Electricity in sink area went out. This is an older building, converted to hotel space. It is just ok, but certainly not great.
