This was such a surprise.Svendsgaard's Lodge was one of the best motels that we stayed at during our recent vacation to the west coast. Although the rooms aren't cutting edge, this is more than made up for by the quality of this motel and its location.Solvang is a fantastic place which deserved more than a one nights stay.The kids loved...

This is a cute little place in a cute little town. The ladies at the front desk where very nice and helpful. The room was clean and pretty spacious. They offered a continental breakfast in the morning which was nice.

We love to visit Solvang, but had never stayed at Svendsgaard's Lodge before. This is our new favorite place in Solvang. The room was huge. We even had a small dining area that was separate from the sleeping/sitting area. The price was low considering all the room had to offer. We had access to the pool from our room. Highly... More

During a recent trip from Pasadena to San Francisco, my wife and I spent a very pleasant night at Solvang's Svendsgaard's Danish Lodge. From the time we approached the Lodge as we came up Mission Drive and viewed its picturesque Danish architecture until our departure the next moning, we greatly enjoyed our stay at this property. Our room was on... More

I would have liked to see more of the Danish charm. It looked out dated, especially the bathroom reminded me of a housing project home bathroom I got to see recently. I loved the price and it was clean, plus the pool was great. Plus they have a friendly staff. It was so charming on the outside, but the inside... More

Rooms are fairly basic, 2 star accommodation, a little tired looking but quite adequate and clean. They are all in a courtyard around the (unseated) pool, and parking is close by. Breakfast comprises cereal, fruit juice, tea/coffee and a Danish or a bagel, served on disposable picnic ware. It can be taken either in reception or carried back to your... More

This is a basic motel, nothing fancy. But, it was very clean, the rooms are good sized, free wifi, and there are fresh pastries every morning. There is a pool and a hot tub, which are both very clean. The hot tub was actually hot (not lukewarm like most places!) I go to Solvang every year and I keep coming... More

TripAdvisor, you really need to add the capability to give half stars! This quaint little lodge really doesn't deserve to be lumped in as "average" because there really were quite a few "something special" touches to this hotel, but, in reality, I'd stop juuuust barely short of "very good" (although I'm rounding up by the extra half star so as...

I stayed here for 7 nights for a business trip. It was a large room, large bathroom, and really comfortable beds and pillows. The decorations were kitchy and cute. The hotel is located at the edge of solvang, but it's still easy to walk to everything. The heater made a drip sound, so it was hard to sleep at night.

Best part of this hotel is the location, centrally located, not a bad choice if you are staying for just one or two nights. Don't expect much during your stay, everything is pretty basic. The property is a little bit old - squeaky floors, not very sound proof at all. I would definitely recommend earplugs for light sleepers.
