Beautiful garden, great staff, and very nice room. Location also fantastic, we walked to downtown in a couple minutes. It was quiet, and we took several beautiful pictures in the garden in front. They had parking right outside too. An easy ride to los olivos where we had a great wine tasting and olive oil tasting too.

Although this hotel is not cheap it is very pleasant and I felt like I got the worth of my money. The garden is simply lovely. We had breakfast at the garden and felt very relaxed, surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers. Definitely going to go back there.

Rooms were very nice, quaint in a good way. Bathroom was fantastic as it had a large shower. The gardens out back very relaxing. Great place to stay after wine tasting and yet visit Solvang. The only minor complaint is no fresh coffee until 8 am, though they do have small coffee maker in room with subpar coffee.

Our drive to Solvang was beautiful yet the land is so parched now everywhere. When we arrived at the Solvang Gardens Lodge, I was immediately impressed with the lush gardens in front with the waterfall and great seating options. The back gardens are a hidden treasure. We stayed in the Santa Barbara room which was awesome; it had a kitchen... More

Solvang Gardens has definitely improved since our last stay three years ago. Most notably the garden area is much more inviting with comfortable sitting areas and a cleaner, neater look. We had a very comfortable king room in the front and others in our party had queen rooms which adjoined the garden. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is... More

We stayed here last weekend and it was a beautiful hotel. The room was nicely decorated but there were little quirks with the doors opening into each other. The room had a nice sitting area with a mini kitchenette. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was off of the busy area but still a close walk to the... More

We loved this hotel as it had very nice garden and was very clean and unique. We had our own parking space by our room so that was nice. We were able to walk to the small town for eating and shopping. We liked this place because it is different from all the regular hotels.

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
