After visiting Solvang off and on for some 40 years, we actually decided to stay a night there. Took a chance on the King Frederik and were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price (under $100 in the summer!), comfort and cleanliness. It's location is in the middle of town, so an easy walk to everything.

We stayed one night at King Frederik Inn, on the way to a get-away up the coast in Cambria. Solvang was the perfect stop-over for us and King Frederik was the perfect location at a reasonable price. Our king room was clean, comfortable, included a microwave and frig, and had a nice airy feel overlooking the pool. It was so... More

It was the best located inn at the center of town, but nothing else to recommend it. You'd think there would be a little fridge or even a microwave, but there is none. It was also a little bit noisy for Solvang, maybe the fact that it was in the middle of town. But, the staff were friendly as was... More

We stayed for 2 nights and were very pleased with the central location, the room itself was very basic, with no fridge or microwave. It was clean enough but pretty outdated, although it was quiet for sleeping. The pastries in the morning were delicious but if they would have included some yogurt it would have been at least a little... More

It has a great location, staff very friendly, rooms are adequate. The beds are beyond horrible. I have sciatica & could not sleep on that mattress. They need to get new bedding. My room had a shower which I don't care for but kept the room because it was a patio room by the pool. Pastries were great. I will... More

We spent one night here on our way from Northern to Southern California. When we arrived, we were greeted by the night receptionist who was very friendly. Our room was spacious (with a fridge) but on the dark side. Also, even though it was on the second floor and to the back, there was still quite a bit of noise... More

It's a perfectly decent place to lay your head for the night. Rooms were clean and neat, the price was right, and the location in the center of town was convenient to shops and restaurants. Beyond that, though, it's just a charmless motel with few to no amenities--not even hotel shampoo (there's a gym-type dispenser on the shower wall). An... More

Cute little fake Danish town of Solvang is America' s Disney version of a Scandinavian town. "King Frederik" Inn is a Motel like many others. Nothing particularly Danish about it, except for the name. First floor room was dark and a bit small for a double twin. Funny smell from the pool in the room. Friendly staff and reasonable price...

This place is NOT pet friendly. It was as clean as a hotel can get and had plenty of space for our four people. The room was a bit dated and sheets were rough but it was clean. Located in the middle of the town so walking is easy! It will do for a night.

We stayed at the King Frederik for the second time in a year to see one of the great musicals at the Solvang Festival Theater. Last year it was Forever Plaid, this year we saw My Fair Lady, both of which were superb. Nothing quite like sitting under the summer nighttime sky watching great performances. But the walk back at... More
