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

I would like to thank you for your kind review and I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us. I agree that we are located in a great spot just down the street from the busy crowds in Solvang yet close enough to be only a five minute walk to all of the restaurants, shops... 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...

We stayed at Solvang Gardens on our trip down the Pacific Coast Highway. Solvang is not on the Pacific Coast Highway but we made a detour to experience the pleasant charms of this Danish town. My wife remembered the last time she was there that residents/store keepers were dressed in Danish attire. Alas that seems to be long gone as... More

We spent two nights here at the end of July and were quite pleased with the accommodations. The gardens in the front and back are nicely landscaped; the waterworks cultivate a calm state of mind. Some rooms in the back open onto a tranquil English garden (we would request one of these when we return). The room we did have... More

We stayed here during our road trip to visit the California Missions, so Mission Santa Ines was our ultimate destination. The property is located outside of town but within a short 5 minute drive. It was built in 1950 and was the first motel in Solvang. The rooms were nicely decorated with antique furnishings but our room was very small.... More

You get a bed and you get breakfast. Realistically it's an upgraded retro motel. The staff is brilliant in making you feel welcome and cared about. The property is clean and well-maintained. The wifi is marginal but the breakfast is good with some nice healthy choices. Good grief, they keep the cereal in the frige so it will stay fresh?... More
