We will definitely stay at the Hamlet Inn again if we visit Solvang again. The room was very affordable, the bed was comfy (i know because I was sick and slept half the day there) the bathroom and shower were a nice size. The room was quiet. It did not smell (i've read other reviews about the smell of the... More

Although the rank is high, it is not as good as I think. The inn just means it is not so big, to some extent, motel style with better decoration. When I arrived, it took me sometime to find the check in counter. And the room still got some smell. I can hear voice from the neighbour. There are several... More

If your primary goal is to do Solvang on the cheap (And this is the cheapest place you can find, then this place is for you. The location is excellent - you are right in the heart of town, walking distance to plenty, plus they have free bikes - but the accommodations are lacking. The bathroom towels were like what... More

First I have to say that I loved Solvang! The Hamlet Inn is right in the middle of town, right across the street from the Solvang Brewing Company (which has great beer!). The staff at the Hamlet was very friendly and gave us helpful tips about wine tasting and microbreweries. They even microwaved our leftovers from the night before at... More

This is a simple, little L-shaped motel with drive-up parking in front. There's no pool or hot tub. A hot tub would have been nice. The room had stark white walls with IKEA type furniture and feel, in keeping with the Danish flavor of the town. There was a small fridge. Shower and no tub. We had two queen beds... More

There's not much to choose from in Solvang but this was a quaint little place. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was small and could use a little upgrading. Location is great and I loved that they had bikes that you can borrow to cruise around town. Oddly, although the room was quite spacious with a king size bed, there were no... More

For the price, this place is a steal. I loved the minimalist decor - especially the wool Danish flag throw on the bed and the Edison bulb bedside lights (but the staff should consider dusting these off more often as they are right at eye level). Two of my fave things were that all the lights were on dimmer switches... More

Room is clean, simple if not spartan. King bed was comfortable but the not much support on the sides so watch out, it's easy to slip/roll off the edge. Location was great. Easy walking to anywhere in town. It was hot outside, so the Room AC was running full time. Loud but not too bad. Room window faced the main... More

This quaint hotel was great! Very fast check-in, they even offered us a 'discount card' for about 20 local wineries that offer either free or 2-for-1 wine tastings! Bear in mind, there are only about 15 rooms total, so don't wait too long to book. Would definitely come back here next time!

The only minor complaint was not having a king size bed available since we are use to one at home and had the same problem in our recent stay in Germany...but on the positive side: 1. very convent access to walk to any place we wanted to see in Solvang... 2. really appreciated the courtesy shown by the front desk,...
