I was incredibly disappointed with our stay at this hotel. The reviews seemed to indicate that it was a nice place to stay and was comfortable, but I experienced quite the opposite. The room was okay, the gardens were pretty, and they let us check in to our room pretty early which was a nice plus. That's where comfort ended.... More

We only had one night staying here on a road trip down the California Coast. We would thoroughly recommend it. Our room (Chardonnay) was gorgeous looking out onto the wonderful gardens. Lovely breakfast and helpful staff. Everything about this place is peaceful and relaxing. We were sorry to leave.

3 night stay, basic room nice but a little cramped, beautiful bathroom, quiet except for the freak in house next door who liked to pick his electric guitar at full volume every afternoon. Good basic continental breakfast. Short walk to restaurants/shopping. Friendly staff, blooming gardens with comfortable tables and sitting areas in front and back (drought?) Exceptional value among local... More

The Solvang Gardens was pretty much what I expected from the pictures and reviews. Pretty property due to the gardens and the motif is very Solvang. Nice location, nice staff, parking very convenient. Room looked like the pictures but there were aspects about my stay that were annoying and I won't be back nor recommend this property to my friends.... More

My wife and I got married in the Solvang area and chose Solvang Gardens Lodge as our hotel for a room block. They were simply amazing- literally in every sense. PROPERTY: Within walking distance of the main drag in Solvang (3-4 blocks away). It's on the outskirts of town, which is nice too since it's not busy. It's a very... More

Solvang was our last overnight before heading home to Australia. We stayed at Solvang Gardens a very quaint Lodge just one street back from the shopping area, easy walk, the lady at reception was very friendly and welcoming. The room was just beautiful with a very comfortable bed (first priority when travelling). Breakfast was included, we sat in a very... More

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
