We (my husband and I) stopped here as a mid-point on our road trip from Santa Cruz to San Diego. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and in lieu of a continental breakfast, they provided a coupon for a free coffee and pastry each at the Olsen bakery across the street. Our room was clearly older, but it had... More

This is a late 40s to early 50s motor lodge. My wife and I first stayed there on the last night of our honeymoon as we were working our way home. We were tired and just needed a place to crash for the night. It turned out great. It is located walking distance to everything in Solvang and was a... More

Used coupon and got a good deal for 2 days. They gave me breakfast coupons, wifi, a clean room with refrig... A good location, parking and everything within walking distance. Especially liked hands on style, owners(I assume) are very concerned that a good stay is important.

This place is absolutely amazing for the price. Johnny and Tracy were super friendly, they made me feel like I was family. It's located right in the middle of town, right across the street from the brewing company so we didn't even need to call a taxi after a night of drinking. For breakfast they give you vouchers for Olsen's... More

Stayed 2 nights during the greyhound fest. Room was shabby, dilapidated and filthy. At $160 per night plus a $15 fee per dog, this place was a total ripoff. The drapes were dirty and full of holes. The hanging light fixture looked like it hadn't been cleaned in at least a year. All the baseboards, moldings and bathroom door were... More

My husband and I made a reservation for two nights. On our first morning, I noticed that our receipt read that we would be checking out that day, so I went to the office to clarify that we'd be staying another night, then we went about our day. When we returned to the room that night, I immediately hopped in... More

Owner/Manager is very nice, but Motel is of last resort,not what you expect in Solvang. is close to the shopping and walking distance to everything. Free breakfast across the blvd. If in need I'll stay there again but only if nothing else is available.

This is a place I stay every time I come to Solvang. Older place but clean and welcoming. Owner/manager Tracy is so sweet and concerned for the comfort of your pleasant stay. Price so very affordable!

This seems to be the lowest priced place to stay in Solvang and has several positives going for it: very nice and friendly staff, clean, comfortable beds, good A/C, good shower, good wifi connect, clean smelling, quiet throughout a busy Saturday night, free coffee and pastry at Olsen's Bakery across and just down the street a bit, easy walk to...
