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

We stayed here on recommendation from a friend who lives in the area and are glad we did. The rooms are spacious, clean and minimalist but with everything you need. The free wifi is faster than a lot of big hotels. The inn also gives you 2 for 1 wine tasting vouchers for the local wineries which was a big... More

Sure, the Hamlet Inn is not a luxury hotel, but that's the beauty of staying here. At first glance, the room is very bare. There are no head boards on the beds, no dressers, microwave or any other unnecessary add on in the room; it leaves plenty of space in the room to place your bags when you go shopping.... More

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.
