4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Solvang is a town of motels, not hotels. But Hadsten House was a good motel option. It was clean, modern and convenient. You could walk from there to the other end of this small town without a problem. The free breakfasts were probably the best in our stay through California. We stayed there two nights but regretted only doing the... More

It is so sad to see a hotel that we have loved coming to for years, go downhill. When it was a family owned hotel it was just wonderful. Under the Chumash ownership, it has slipped in so many ways. Long hold times to call the hotel, less than friendly front desk staff, rooms not ready until 4, filthy carpets,... More

My family and I arrived into town around 2pm on a Thursday last week. I had booked a 3-room block online. When we tried to check-in, the front desk informs me that only one room was ready. Fine, I told them that we would walk around town and come back in an hour since they told me that was when... More

I just want to say I am very sorry about the condition of your carpet. It’s clear from your review there was a problem, but I do not have any notes showing you spoke to management so I am not sure what corrective actions might, or might not, have been available. Nor do I know if some compensation was given.... More

Great clean well kept hotel in the heart of Solvang, ca. Next to liquor store for all your after hour needs. Good parking and can walk to anything in downtown solvang, Highly recomended. Hotel offers various discounts so ask ahead of time. Rooms away from road tend to not hear road traffic.

We had never been to Solvang and decided to visit this summer. I simply picked the hotel based on other Trip Advisor reviews. It was a great hotel. It was easy to access the shops and restaurants in the area. The hotel was quiet, clean, and cozy. Our kids loved the fireplace in the room! The breakfast buffet was simple... More

Hadsten House was the perfect place to rest after a day of wine tasting. It's walking distance to the center of town, the rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. We'll definitely stay here again!

We've stayed in Solvang many times but this was the first time here. It is clean and inviting, quiet and the bed was excellent. Also, they have a (free) breakfast in their Bistro and it was very good. Not just the continental fare, but eggs, bacon, potatoes too and plenty of pastries (this is Solvang after all). We only got... More

We chose this hotel for its central location in the Santa Ynez Valley and its amenities. You get a lot of bang for your buck. In addition to several choices of room, there is an indoor swimming pool, a hot tub which is great to relax in after a fun filled day of wine tasting and full breakfast in their... More

We stayed here for only one night. I wish we could have had a few days. The outside is nice looking and clean, but once you get in your room you are blown away. The rooms are very clean, wood shutters on all of the Windows, refrigerator in your room. They have a beautiful indoor pool, with handicapped access which... More

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
