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

I was very concerned about staying here after some of the reviews. We had no concerns. It is on the end of Mission, but within walking distance of the entire town. Got a coupon for a complimentary drink and Danish at the bakery down the street. Free wifi worked extremely well, very clean, and ac worked great. Tracy was extremely... More

we stayed here in a last minute search for a room after being let down by another motel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Service was excellent, staff were helpful and welcoming. This was one of our favourite stops and we look forward to visiting again!
