I researched all my hotels before i pre-booked them either with Trip-Advisor or another source. Once again it was as we expected...Nice size room, a pool and jacuzzi and the Breakfast was really good. Located at one end of the main street.

The Lodge is next to the mission at one end of Solvang, which is convenient for the 495 route to Santa Barbara. The room was clean and spacious, bed comfortable. Breakfast is in the reception area and was continental in style. The items had to be requested from a server. So, "it does was it says on the tin". Simple,... More

My husband and I have satyed at this hotel for the last four years and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. If you are looking for an upscale, overpriced, modern hotel this is not the place for you. However, if you enjoy old fashioned hospitality, cleanliness, roomy accommodations and a good location then Svengaards's Lodge is the place for you!

Wifi was spotty had to move around the room to get the best reception. Spent most of our time touring the town and surrounding areas so was a ok place to spend the nite. Price was good.if... More

Checking the GPS on my car we saw a cluster of Hotels in Solvang. What a surprise to find a Danish community and town. The hotel was dated and the room furnishing reminded me of my apartment from the early 90's. It was very clean and the smiles from the staff added to the charm. The price was right and... More

I've been coming to Solvang since I was little and have always wanted to stay a night. I see reviews saying this place is outdated. Compared to contemporary places, yes. However, people have to understand that most of the hotels in Solvang have been there for over 20 years. If you understand this, you will understand that staying at Svendgaard... More

We have been staying here for over forty years and when we had our young children it was particularly great because many of the rooms have full kitchens with extra beds. With just the two of us I would now prefer a decent bed and pillows that don't hurt your neck. This place is clean but, in need of a... More

The lady who checked us in was very helpful and gave us good information about the area. Our room was nice and clean and large, and had a fireplace. We didn't try it because it was warm. But we will be back when cooler weather sets in, then we will try it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the price... More

Stayed here for 1 night in a deluxe king. The room (linens) were clean, though the carpet could have benefited from a shampoo. All the furnishings and fixings were very dated but functional. Couldn't complain for a 1 night stay, though fairly expensive but so is the rest of Solvang on a Friday night. I'd try somewhere else rather than... More

Hello, We are thankful for your recent review. Friday and Saturday nights in Solvang are the busiest time as I am sure you are aware. Many guests request our deluxe kings with fireplaces and are very happy and surprised at the size of the room. Yes, we have the "in style" linen of triple sheeting, bed scarves and no comforter/bedspreads... More

Svendsgaards does have a great location and the rooms are large and clean. However we had a corner room so we had streets on two sides. There is a surprising amount of traffic on Hwy 246 and it goes on until quite late at night. We thought this would be solved by turning on the window a/c unit when we... More

Hello, Thank you for staying with us at Svendsgaard's. Our quiet little town has seen an increase in traffic and we do apologize. Efforts have been made with changing out to a more sound proof type of window. The rooms in front have an amazing view of town and are requested by some of our repeat guests. However, if you... More
