I honestly do not know why this hotel gets the ratings it does. This is a glorified Motel 6 with some mediocre attempts at dressing it up. The pictures look deceivingly good compared to reality. Rooms are very small and crowded. The lighting in the rooms is depressing. The floors appear to be poor quality laminate. The bathrooms have had... More

Good hotel but eat lunch and supper elsewhere. Nice accommodations and pricey but in line for that area. Very good breakfast but avoid getting there in the last 20 minutes as the food evaporates and is not, or grudgingly, restocked. One tall waiter, probably a fresh high school grad, was consistently grumpy and unhelpful. The others were fine. A bus... More

I stayed in 5 hotels on this trip, and it was by far my favorite!!! The kids love the indoor pool and the breakfasts! I loved how large the room was. Perfect for disabled guests. Can't recommend this place enough.

We had a very good nights sleep in this lovely Hotel. It was very clean, only a stones throw from the main town but not noisy. Breakfast was very good and lots of it! We did not sample the restaurant as we wanted to explore the town itself. Husband used the pool and I lounged around getting some sun. Would... More

This is one of those places which you would almost like to keep to yourself, but it is so well patronized now that that boat has sailed !! We've been there four times now, and I would never stay anywhere else in Solvang. First of all there is the excellent location. Hadsten House is on the main drag just as... More

BF and I booked this hotel based on reviews from tripadvisor, our stay was medicore until we returned home and realized we were missing a few items 1) BF's North Face fleece jacket, 2) my Oiselle running shorts, and 3) jewelery - 2 sets of earrings, 1 bracelet and a ring. We promptly conducted the hotel and were rudely brushed... More

Traveling with my niece and we both enjoyed our room. Very nice clean room with enough room for the two of us to spread out. Parking is cramped but manageable. You can walk from your room to downtown Solvang so that was good. That way you can do all the wine tasting and not drive. The breakfast was very good... More

While they did a nice job updating a motel, at the end it is still a motel. Rooms are reasonably quiet if small, and have nice new furnishings and a coat of paint. The water pressure in the shower was poor. The free breakfast was marginal, with warming trays of bacon, over-cooked potatoes, and scrambled eggs seemingly from a pre-made... More

Spent two nights here. Loved the decor, location, breakfast and an AMAZING AC system. Our room was well decorated, very clean, and the AC was rockin. Since it was a hot weekend it was nice to come back to a cool room after wine tasting. Parking was pretty good. We were able to park outside our room most of the... More
