We came here for a couples weekend and the other couple selected this hotel. We weren't expecting too much because it's Solvang and unless you plan on spending $400/night you are not getting an amazing hotel, but this place does the job well! It reminds me of a hybrid, boutique inn and you can tell that they've put their own... More

Well, The Hamlet Inn is well located in Solvang. It's a nice thing to be able to walk to dinner or breakfast. The disadvantage to being on the main drag, of course, is that it was a bit noisy. Our bathroom window was facing the street. If you go here, maybe request a room further back. This room was sparse,... More

Stayed here two nights. The only really good thing was the location. The room was pretty depressing. Not much light because of the dark paint color. No headboard, no dresser. No counter space in the bathroom. When you enter the room your looking directly at the toilet. Everything pretty minimal. Would not stay here again.

We found this place to be very simple but nice and comfy for this tourist-laden village. The bed was very comfortable and the room sparse with furniture, but I would rather have a large, comfy bed than extra furniture we didn't need. The people in the reception area were pleasant. Continental breakfast is provided at the bakery across the street,... More

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.
