Clean, comfortable room. Good location, but just about every hotel in Solvang is within walking distance of anything. The "fireplace" is not real but looks nice anyway. Pool is indoor and heated. Nice breakfast in the morning.

We've made Hadsten House our 'go to' place when going to Solvang, Santa Ynez and Los Olivos wine areas. With the included hot breakfast and courtesy wine tastings or two-for-one tastings it's well worth the room rate. In fact, one trip we actually 'made' money when we factored in the cost of the room versus the cost of breakfast/wine tasting... More

Front desk was great and very helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We like the idea that its walking distance to shopping, restaurants, cellars, etc. It's a great weekend getaway! It comes with free breakfast, shuttle to Chumash Casino if you like to gamble, free wifi, and few places for complimentary wine tasting in walking distance.

Stayed here a few years back and loved it so we decided for my 50th New Years Eve Birthday to stay again. We booked for 3 nights and all I really have to say is that our room needed a little more light. It was very dark even with the lights on. But otherwise, the staff was very nice and... More

My husband and I have stayed here many times. It's an old motel that has been beautifully updated. The dinning room is nice with a good spread of breakfast items, that come included in the price of a night's stay. There is an indoor pool, which is nice in the winter. There is also an outdoor hot tube, for hanging... More

So disappointed. Bland hamburgers for $18 and dry fried chicken for $28. The service was not so great, although our server Stephanie was excellent...she just needs more help. The persimmon salad was good. I've been here numerous times and I gave this place three chances. I won't be back.

The room was clean and pretty nice. The bed was hard and they need to get some new pillows. Staff was very nice. We didn't eat the free breakfast because we went to our favorite "breakfast " restaurant. No coffee in the room, but you can walk to their "bistro" and get some. The ice machine is outside in a...

I read rave reviews on this place and it was a return visit for my family. No one mentioned there is no elevator, bellman or even luggage cart in this hotel. This is a problem if you have any mobility issues. I could hear other guests struggling on the stairs at all hours with heavy bags.Yes the rooms are pretty... More

This place is comfortable and clean. The rooms have been refurbished. The bath room is spacious and has lots of space for your things. Comfortable bed, but low lighting so reading in bed is a challenge. The breakfasts are good and the coffee is great. Service is also great - very friendly.
