My wife and I stayed at the Petersen Village Inn on a recent trip to California after a long day of flights and road travel. Things were pretty booked up in Solvang but we snagged the last room here. It was a bit more expensive than we would normally look at but wow was it worth it.
Even though it was only one night, I don't think we have enjoyed a stay in any hotel as much as this one. The room was very clean, comfortable, private and opened out onto a sunken garden area complete with a rockfall and pond. The complimentary breakfast was well above the standard fare (Mortensens pastries are to die for!) and the service was spectacular.
On that note, I'll end with an illustrative story about the "great folks" title caption I started with. We were almost a week down the road when my wife realized that she had inadvertently left a pair of her favorite earrings in the room at the Inn. We called in and they had found and set aside the earrings. They offered to mail them back to us free of charge and we were overjoyed.
But it didn't end there, the USPS inexplicably returned the package, even though they had properly addressed it, so, after calling to tell us what had happened and to confirm the address, they said they would take it to the post office and verify that it was good to go before sending it along again.
We were astounded at their kindness and 'can do' customer service attitude. Do yourself a favour - STAY HERE, you won't be sorry.
