I am a very regular traveller and I booked a stay here on a tip. This place is a total find. Most of the properties in Solvang look like old tired motels from the outside, and from the outside so does the Hadsten which is why I never gave it a thought. The entire Santa Ynez Valley is VERY pricey... More

We stayed here a couple of nights and we had a lovely stay. The ladies at the front desk were very nice. We were upgraded to a different room (thank you front desk!), the free breakfast was great and we even got a sheet of paper with wine tasting specials around the area. A couple of places where complimentary and... More

Great hotel! Clean and the rooms are quiet and beautiful decor! Awesome pool! Free breakfast! Great staff! Only sad thing is there isn't a lot of parking so if you come back late you might not get THE spot in front of your room. We've stayed here before and will stay again. AAA rate

My husband and I stayed on the second floor, in a quiet, clean room. We enjoyed using the pool and hot tub. Breakfast was very good. We were at the edge of the historic downtown, as close to it as possible without being in it. All in all, we enjoyed our stay in Solvang and at Hadsten House.

My Girl and I decided to take a last minute trip to Solvang. While entering the town, we had little sucess in finding a place to stay. We spotted the Inn and inquired within. The Staff was friendly and the room was clean and quaint. We had dinner at the Bistro and enjoyed the food and service. The following morning,... More

Not very well located if you want to explore the town: a reasonable walk from historic downtown, and – to make it worse – along the road. If you just want to stay overnight, like I did, it´s fine. Room and bathroom were spacious and clean. Breakfast was bad: not a lot of options, only toast available as bread (no... More

(I am using Google translate, so apologies if I read your review incorrectly) I am sorry the breakfast was lacking for you due to the absence of pastries as we are actually quite proud of our breakfast. Solvang is well known for its bakeries and especially it’s authentic Danish Pastries. Due to previous feedback we no longer try to compete... More

Over the years, my husband and I have stayed here probably 5 times and have always loved it. While it is a former motel, the updated furnishings, attention to detail, and superior customer service have always made it worth the higher price point. I'm a sucker for a cool, non-touristy boutique hotel, and this property has always fit the bill.... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. First, I am very sorry if you got a room that was not up to standards. I am working with Housekeeping and Maintenance to make sure we are not getting behind, however this time of year we can become victims or our own success. (More rooms sold also means more... More

The room was very clean, the bed quite comfortable, and plenty of space for 2 people. My daughter treated me for my birthday. I enjoyed a massage in the spa (on property) and she took advantage of the spa tub in our room! She loved it! The food in the dining room was wonderful! Outstanding lobster bisque. Highly recommend it!... More

The Hadsten House is a great place to stay in Solvang, I have stayed here several times for business always a great price. Solvang is a great place to visit, the Hadsten is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. I stayed here on this trip just over night on my way to Santa Barbara.
