Stayed here on our way to SF and was very pleasantly surprised how wonderful it was. The room and bathroom were both very clean and simply decorated (in kinda an Ikea way). The hotel itself if right in the middle of everything, so it was a great place to leave your car and just wander around the town. We highly... More

After arriving in Solvang, I cruised the Main Street and observed vacancy signs at ALL hotels. This was 6 pm on Saturday night. I chose The Hamlet due to proximity to restaurants etc. when I entered the desk attendant quoted me a price of $79....then asked "how many"? I told her "just one" after which she looked down at her... More

Stayed here with friends last year and didn't hesitate to book again this year. Great little hotel centrally located in Solvang. Rooms are large with large, comfy beds. Ac is a bit noisy but was very welcome on a warm day. Bathroom has large shower and is perfectly functional. Great location if you are planning a wine tasting tour.

Hamlet Inn is on Mission Drive, in the middle of all the action. It's a great area to stay in, right across from Paula's Pancake House and a ton of other eateries. There are ton of tastings nearby as well, so it makes for a perfect play to stay, location-wise. The Inn was very nice. Clean, the beds were comfortable,... More

The room was small, but quaintly decorated and clean. The property is pleasant, the staff are helpful, and the a/c is COLD. There aren't a lot of extras - but then, you aren't staying in Solvang for the hotel, I expect. It is CENTRAL to the town, an easy walk to virtually everything you will want to see - shops,... More

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).
