This was our second time visiting, we actually had a great room, and slept well. No problems there. However, steer clear of Rory, the manager of the restaurant. She's EXTREMELY unprofessional, and obviously has not had proper training in dealing with delicate situations. We complained upon check out, and we were told that they commonly hear that. So, get rid... More

This is by far one of the best breakfasts, that was included with the room price, we have had traveling. Fresh fruit, bacon, extremely good scrambled eggs, oatmeal and potatoes. Our room was very comfortable and quiet.

The room was well decorated; felt like old Europe. The fireplace was a nice touch. It's located on the edge of town, but that's STILL really within walking distance of everything. It made it nice to walk UP one of the two streets, and DOWN the other...town tour done! We got there on a Wednesday, which was the Wednesdsay Wine... More

Beautiful room and good breakfast, however the shower mixer in the bathroom didn't work so we only could have a bath. While reporting it at the reception I heard ohh I am sorry, but nothing was done about it. Also the hotel internal pool is useless as is too cold. No surprise there was no one there.

I am very sorry the pool was cold during your stay. Despite being and indoor pool, we do try to keep it heated to 82 degrees from 8am to 10pm daily. Unfortunately sometimes parts fail. Our pool maintenance is handled by the company that owns us and so while you may not have seen anything done I can assure you... More

We enjoyed our stay. The room was nicely decorated and clean. The jacuzzi area was fabulous. We ate one dinner in the restaurant and is was delicious. My massage from Linda was one of the best I ever had. We were there for a week and the breakfast food options were always the same which was disappointing. The coffee was... More

Travel a lot and don't usually write reviews, but I enjoyed this hotel so much, I decided I needed to comment. Stayed in room 231 and it felt like home. Beautifully decorated and great layout. Service, price and overall stay were great. We enjoyed this quiet Danish town.

I come to Solvang a couple times a year, and always stay at Hadsten House. They have clean, comfortable rooms (with a fireplace), free breakfast, a jacuzzi, restaurant, polite staff, and are conveniently located at the first intersection driving in from Buelton. They also offer complimentary wine tastings at several wineries in the area, so be sure to ask for... More

Let's be honest - this used to be a motor-inn type of venue. It's off the main strip, and you can hear traffic flowing. But, the little extras offered by this motel make it worthwhile to stay despite these inconveniences. The rooms are well appointed (although the bathroom is TINY). The old fashioned appearance of the phone is cute, and... More

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
