We had booked an updated Queen room with garden access 4 months earlier (and were surprised that the credit card was charged immediately after booking). Upon arrival we liked the comfortable room with tile floor (so much better than carpet) and modern decor. We appreciated the flatscreen TV, strong wifi and coffee maker. The gardens are a beautiful space to... More

Had a relative getting married in the area, and this was the hotel for many of the guests. When we booked the room, I thought the price was a bit high, and I still think that a little. The suite was large, clean and well maintained with a full kitchen, stocked with plates, glassware and silverware. We hardly had any... More

Solvang Garden Inn is a very nice and relaxingl place to stay, the staff is very nice and the continental breakfast is set up to make you feel at home.

This inn is close to the shops and restaurants in Solvang but far enough to be relaxing, cozy, and it's a great value. The rooms have nice bathrooms, comfy beds, new tvs, and a great continental breakfast. I would highly recommend a stay here.

The best part for us were the gardens...front and back. Unfortunately, it was raining and cold, so we couldn't enjoy them. It would be perfect for a glass of wine, having breakfast or just checking the internet. Our room was facing the English Garden (rear) which was very private. The room was small but clean...perfect for a short stay. I... More

on December 25th, 2013, I had a reservation here through booking.com. Something came up and we were unable to use the reservation. Having established a rapport with the manager, I called her and related my story. She asked if I wanted a refund and I said no-that sooner or later I would use the reservation and looked forward to meeting... More

We chose Solvang Gardens mostly based on the reviews that we read about the beautiful gardens, and I am glad that we did! Spending time in the front garden added a peaceful and relaxing experience to our stay. In addition, Sabiha provided us with friendly and helpful service. We stayed in room #4 (Edelweiss), which is a corner room facing... More

Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, walking distance to town, peaceful gardens. I would have rated it a 5 if there was a fridge and microwave. It was a bummer when we couldn't bring a doggy bag back.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights back in November. The staff were both efficient and friendly with a warm welcome on arrival. The hotel itself is set in beautiful relaxing gardens and it was warm enough to eat breakfast outside surrounded by flowers.

The Solvang Gardens is a small motel in Solvang. The location is excellent: you can walk everywhere in town, yet it is not on the main road, so it is very quiet. The garden is very pretty and the breakfast is quite good with fresh pastries and oatmeal, although the bagels are so-so... Unfortunately there is nowhere to sit to... More
