Pros: Good continental breakfast with real Solvang Danish pastries, great location in central Solvang. Rooms with TV and working A/C. Good if you have kids and need a clean affordable place to stay. Cons: A little dated, smokers abound, parking can be an issue.

Let me preface by saying my lovely partner and I love staying at B&B's, they appeal to our sensibilities in most every sense. Solvang Gardens is not a B&B, although it is however listed in the B&B category on Trip Advisor. It is however a delightful little hotel. The most endearing part is the garden in the rear of the...

My husband and I were in Solvang over Memorial Day weekend. After hunting around for hotels and inns, we decided to stay at Solvang Gardens. The woman at the front desk was very sweet and helpful. My husband and I stayed in a Garden Room Queen. The room was clean and tidy with a nice bathroom that opened up to... More

Solvang is not a place I would go out of my to travel to but my wife and I were there. Looked at several places to stay on Trip Advisor and felt my choices were limited. Finally settled on Solvang Gardens and made the right choice. The place is not as nice as the pictures and the morning repast is... More

How did we overlook this charming Inn in Solvang for so long?? Beautiful rooms full of art and antiques and gardens that beckon you to sit, relax, read a book and drink that yummy bottle of wine you just bought. If you're looking for a quiet escape off the main drag but still in walking distance for shopping or dinner,... More

My wife and I spent a Saturday night here to attend a wedding and it was the perfect place the stay. The room was charming and spacious - it was a King room towards the front. We liked the fireplace and the timer made it easy to doze off to the flickering flames. The bathroom was clean and although a... More

We just had a wonderful stay at Solvang Gardens. Michelle (and everyone else we met) were friendly and very helpful. When our plans changed, she easily helped us reschedule for the next night. When we arrived she was able to upgrade us to room 23 (located next to the room where people check-in...sorry, I forget the room's garden name), which... More

Just checked out after spending 2 nights at Solvang Gardens. A very charming place with outstanding hospitality. We had a smaller room with a queen bed that I booked directly through Solvang Gardens website. From the moment we arrived, all contact we had with staff and the owners, was extremely friendly and pleasant. They were most helpful and it truly... More

Before I begin, let me remind you I did give this place a 4 on a scale of 5. I came to Solvang Gardens for a quick overnight trip with another couple - they stayed at another hotel in town (& no, we’re not swingers). I knew we wouldn’t be in the room for too long, but wanted a nice... More
