We just finished a one-night stay in room 21 as a couple but will definitely come back with our kid. The rooms are inexpensive, clean, charming, and we even have an extra "sitting" room we aren't using which could totally fit our child or a friend. Will definitely return.

The room was a bit on the small side, trying to look more luxurious than it was.(This is a converted motel, so no inherent luxury here.) The bathroom was very nice, and not at all small and with a marble walk-in shower. But the best part was the garden, cooler and shaded which was very helpful in this inland town.... More

I love Solvang so I go often. I like trying different hotels. I really thought I would love to stay here. Well I was given a room right behind the front office. I was very disapointed. Besides the room was so so small like staying in a converted garage aircond was loud. Front desk person (owner) laughed oh I'm parked... More

The brochure and website photos looked good and so my wife and I booked and stayed here in November 2012. But we found the rooms small and grossly overpriced. We were upgraded to a 'deluxe suite' which had dirty carpets, part of an extension plug hanging out of an electrical outlet, a broken toilet seat and a strange mechanical hum... More

We stayed last year & enjoyed the beautiful garden. This year we got the larger king bougainvillea suite. Our room had a little electric fireplace that we didn't use for heat but enjoyed the ambiance of the look of a lit fire without the heat. It really was lovely. Super deep bathtub for a bathers paradise. But again the gardens... More

The property is well located and out of the main drag hustle and bustle. Our room was very large and well appointed and comfortable. Although the property is older than many Solvang comparables everything worked including the large fireplace in the room. Because there was some exterior renovation work underway we were not able to take advantage of their spacious... More

We came in to town mid-afternoon and needed a place to stay for one night. The Solvang Gardens are off the main road, but an easy walk to the downtown area. The staff at the SG were super friendly and helpful. We decided on a room in the back, off the road, as I am a light sleeper. The room... More

We took two back garden rooms, selecting from four available when we arrived. A very delightful staff, Michelle, gave us the tour and her advice. Each room is different and right now they are in the midst of redecorating and redoing the rooms and infrastructure. Gardens both behind our rooms and those in the front were in great bloom, even...
