We stayed here on our PCH trip, last night before LA but I wish we'd stayed in Santa Barbara. Solving was plain weird and on an exceptionally hot day, was too hot to wander around. Come the evening when it was cool enough, everything was shut! The Hamlet was very basic: uncomfortable beds, rubbish shower pressure, no views or communal... More

I have stayed at several properties in Solvang. Due to some procrastination on my part, I was unable to book my favorite lodging on a very busy weekend ( the finale of My Fair Lady at the Festival Theater). I found the Hamlet Inn through a booking engine and we made a reservation for two rooms...not sure what to expect.... More

For the location, this hotel had a great rate and the room was clean and adequate. The woman at check-in gave us a card for discounted wine tastings throughout Solvang. Be sure to try Ebelskevers, there are a few shops that have them.

We stayed one night and needed two beds and were surprised to find one bed per room with a door between them. Only one room had a window unit A/C but it got both rooms cool. It was nice to close the door between rooms to block the sound of our snoring family member. The office has free bikes that... More

Stayed here for one night on July 3/4 weekend 2015. They charge (irrevocable) full amount to cc at checkin (which was somewhat impersonal). Cost for an average room in an average property was way inflated compared to (our discovery) nearby hotels/inns like Royal Copenhagen (which seemed a better, friendlier, and well maintained property comparatively).

Well it's a very cute place!! Very simple I actually like it better than most "normal" hotels. It's right on the main drag as stated above. The rooms have a bed, nightstand, TV, long desk, sofa, table, & mini fridge. Lots of natural light and the room is huge compared to most places. I love the space in the shower... More

Nothing to write home about. Sparse utilitarian rooms may put some off but clean and serviceable with all amenities within walking distance. Not the friendliest welcome but we all have off days. Would try another property if there is a next time.

Too bad we only stayed overnight, because I think we would love to spend more time at the hotel and the city. The beds were super comfortable and the room was quite big. The bathroom had a heating system, which was really good because it was quite chilly that night.

the room and bathroom are clean. Breakfast provided across the hotel. I like it because it was really close to the starting line, about 3 blocks away. close to shops, wine tasting, and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a repeat visit- we stayed here 2 years ago and really loved it so we thought we'd stay here again. The location of this hotel is really convenient, but then again all the hotels in Solvang are within walking distance to the town centre. The hotel is still nice, but it didn't feel as nice as last time.... More
