I picked this motel based upon Trip Advisor ratings. I was disappointed. It is a motel on a busy road. Can hear traffic noise late into the night. Nightly room rate was nearly $200. No central air, window units. Rooms are basic motel style with somewhat upgraded furnishings. Fair amount of noise outside the rooms with patrons hanging around outside... More

The management of this hotel has done a great job of updating the rooms without losing the original charm. The rooms are quiet, well equipped and location is excellent. Don't miss the great Wine Bar as well!

I've stayed at the Hadsten House in Solvang a couple of times now. First time about 5 years ago, and the second this past weekend. Out of all the "motel" style hotels this is a good one. Nice service, hospitable staff. Easy to find location and within walking distance of things to do in Solvang. I would stay here again.

Hadsten House is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were clean. Breakfast is included and they serve a GOOD breakfast (bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc.) not that basic continental stuff. Located walking distance from all shops and restaurants.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your opinions, and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do like to think we serve the best included breakfast in the area. Pancakes are rare, only if we have a group with special needs, but fresh made scrambled eggs, bacon, handcut fruit, three breads for toasting and... More

While visiting santa ynez for some wine Tasting and some great meals I always choose this hotel. The rooms are always clean, staff always pleasant and the free breakfast is really good. Just a tip, and the biggest selling point on this hotel are the complimentary wine tastings you get when staying at this hotel.

My wife and I and our son and his wife and infant granddaughter stayed one night in two ground floor rooms. It was a more restful and pleasant experience than our previous two nights at the Hyatt in Monterey. We found the rooms to be tastefully decorated, comfortable, and mostly quiet. Very nice ambience that is distinctive from the Chains.... More

When we pulled up the place does looked like a motel. However, the check in area, restaurant and rooms have all been newly updated. The room we stayed in was room 100. It is located on the first floor and includes a Jacuzzi for two. The room is beautifully decorated. The only negative was the noise in the morning. You... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice now in the past year, and are planning another stay next month. The location is perfect if you have spent (or are going to spend) a day wine tasting in Santa Ynez. It's also perfect for walking around Solvang, with easy access to lots of restaurants and shops. But it also has... More

This motel is homey, homey - the rooms are so beautifully decorated in black and white with little home made items part of the ambience. The room even has a fireplace in it - perfect. The restaurant is fabulous and the complimentary breakfast buffet is excellent served in very pleasant surroundings. The Hadsten House is a great deal in lovely... More
