Maybe I didn't have too much luck.... I've read some reviews of the rooms in this hotel and everyone liked it.... But mine had only one bed, one small fridge, a table, a TV and an Ipod base. And that was it. Literally! The room 16 is the most simple room I've ever stayed in my tourist life, I have... More

The pillows were stained. The room was sparse and there was trash in the refrigerator from the last tenant. I tried to get ice at 8:30 pm but the office was locked and the only excuse the next day was "Oh, we had someplace to go." On the last day, we returned to our room from breakfast (well before checkout... More

Really enjoyed our relatively inexpensive and quirky stay here. Rooms clean and cool with the Denmark theme! Showers were fab and the drinks passport was a real bonus! Great that they had free bikes too - only wish we had longer than a night to enjoy them!

We recently stayed for one night as a couple during a weekend of wine tasting. Pros: great location, walkable to everything. The rooms had obviously been refurbished recently, with new paint and fixtures. Everything was clean except for the couch upholstery, which was stained. It was surprisingly quiet considering how near the main road it is. Bed and linen quality... More

I booked this motel the same day (midweek) to break up the drive from San Francisco to L.A. Normally I read reviews and look at pics on Tripadvisor and have had very good fortune with my stays, but this time I regret not having done my research. I booked it on the fly based on the price and the rating... More

We don't normally stay at a Motel but we had no choice because of our last minute planning. The place is clean, easy to access, has a small refrigerator, and most importantly air condition. This motel is directly across from Paul's Pancake house. If you're here for the 4th of July, you'll have a great view of their local parade.

Simple, clean room. There's a coffee maker and a mini fridge. The location is ideal in this adorable little town; there are several eateries and shops right across the street. My husband and I aren't looking for frills in our hotel - just clean sheets and a nice shower. We'll definitely be back.

Inn is well placed in the centre of Solvang - ideal for a visit to see this unusual bit of Denmark in California and close to good retaurants and wine bars. Room is decorated in a minimalist way - white walls, little furniture - but is roomy enough, has a comfortable bed and gives you that Danish feel. Staff were... More

Located in the centre of town and across the Street from Paula's Pancakes & Solvang Brewing, perfect for a drink at the end of the day and pancakes in morning. Anthony was a friendly & helpful host. The bikes are free and a quick and fun way to see the town. Easily forget you are in California, feels more like... More
