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...

This quaint little motel is very old. They have the units in a horseshoe with a grassy area and patio furniture for the guests to enjoy the fresh air. The building has been completely repainted both outside and in. The room also had crown molding as well as fresh paint. The windows have all been replaced with dual pane to... More

If you're looking for the lowest priced accomodations in Solvang, the Viking Motel is probably it. But be prepared. Our king room ($91 including tax) while OK size-wise, was showing signs of age and wear. When I made our reservation about two months ago (we were in Solvang on a Fri. at the end of May), I was told there... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to go wine tasting for his birthday, but were put off by the expensive hotel rates in Los Olivos, Solvang, and the surrounding areas. After a lot of research, I discovered the Viking Motel. The Viking Motel is not luxurious, but it was a comfortable place to sleep for one night. The room was clean... More

After reading the comments, I admit I was a bit reluctant to book a room here. My grandparents and family settled in Solvang in the 1930's, and I generally have a free room. This time I was coming in late so I looked into booking a room. Aside from the most affordable option, the staff was extremely accommodating, arriving late... More

It was fine for what we paid. We got the very front room behind office on main street. I was afraid it was going to be loud, but once we closed the window it was ok. It smelled like smoke. A lot. (which is why they had the windows open I'm guessing) Room is small-ish, but if you're just going... More
