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

Stayed here Jan. 5 2015 for my boyfriend's birthday weekend and had a great time! This place had been beautifully remodeled ( sitting area, granite bathroom counter top, fire place to name a few). We had a second floor room and away from the main street and didn't have any problem with any outside noise. I am very particular with... More

The minute I walked in the room I knew I was going to like it...There was a fireplace...The rooms look like they have just been redone.. I would love to go here again... The restaurant has great food. The breakfast buffet is wonderful.

This is the first motel I've ever stayed in...I was a little skeptical at first. But the room was nice. The restaurant was great. Free breakfast in the morning. We went wine tasting and got so many free tastings just for staying at the Hadsten House. Such an unexpected bonus! In the evening, a free shuttle picked us up and... More

Thank you so much for your kind review, and for taking a chance on our motel layout. I know it is hard for many people, used to enclosed hallways, to give us that chance. The town of Solvang is very proud of its Danish heritage and distinct style. As with any small town, big changes are rarely welcome, and because... More

Been staying here for many years--quiet, very good prices, walk to town center, free parking. Restaurant has much improved--good menu, huge wine list, good prices. (Free breakfst buffet, also.) Decor is now about 10 years old. Still chick, but could use renewal. Still clean, nice fireplaces, cute rabbit lamps...

Hadsten house hotel is a hidden treasure set among many cheesy Solvang hotels. It looks like a typical roadside motel but with more class and comfort. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The complimentary breakfast is basic and provides the essentials to start your day. Coffee could be stronger and I would have loved to see some daily baked... More

We've stayed at some pretty luxurious places so in comparison I rate it average, however, it is still a very nice room with a comfortable bed. We go to the Central Coast wine country quite often and don't need to spend a bundle to have a good time. Hadsten House is affordable and centrally located to many great wineries. I... More

I've stayed at Hadsten House before. It is well located and comfortable. The inclusive breakfast should start service earlier since I've missed it whenever I've stayed due to an early start. On this trip the Guest Services Manager, Michael Hawk, proved himself to be an idiot, incapable of providing the simplest advice upon request, and covering his back when called... More

I am sorry I answered the email the way I did. As part of my position I answer hundreds of emails a week. I did badly mistake your email, but sometimes I have to try and give palatable answers to questions I don't have a good answer for, acswers that people hold me to in the future. Because of this...

We recently stayed at the Hadsten House and were very impressed by the room features, which included a fireplace and a very modern, comfortable bathroom area. The pool, spa and free breakfast were great.

Use to go here when it was the VI. Boy, what a change! Lovely rooms with a cozy feeling and all the bells and whistles thrown in. Staff was really nice and helpful. The indoor swimming area is nice in the winter time when it can get a little cold. Just far enough from the town of Solvang for a... More
