We have seen the city of Solvang in late summer before. Those who don't know about Solvang, I probably should add that it is a small city halfway between San Louis Obispo and Santa Barbara, established by a group of Danes in early 1900s to create a look and feel of Denmark in Central California. This time we decided to make a one-night trip to Solvang to see how its winter decoration looks like. Though the weather was bad (it rained torrentially on both days of our trip), Solvang didn't disappoint us. The heart of the small city is a street named Copenhagen Drive. It was lavishly decorated with beautiful Christmas trees and ornaments. Next day, while coming back, we stopped at Pismo beach (about 50 miles from Solvang) and enjoyed both the beach and the prime outlets.
We decided not to stay in Solvang proper (which has very few choices and they are mostly expensive); last time we stayed in Buellton and this time we stayed in Lompoc. The Embassy Suites was a great hotel. Very nice both inside and outside. Inside of the hotel has a fish pond and a small swimming pool. Every room has a king bed, a sleeper sofa, a large desk and a comfortable chair. The section containing the sleeper sofa can be isolated for the kids where they can enjoy their own TV set. The spacious bed room has a large closet and another TV.
As for location of the hotel, it is near the more vibrant section of Lompoc (H Street) and one can get all the shops and restaurants within 2 to 3 miles from the hotel.
One highlight of our stay was the excellent and freshly cooked complimentary breakfast that the hotel offers. The breakfast area wasn't very crowded and we got our orders back pretty quickly.
