“Experience Europe Without Leaving California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We arrived mid week and were welcomed by the entire front desk staff. It has been over 15 years since I had last been to Solvang and one of my fond memories was Petersen Village Inn. I was not disappointed. Everything maintains the high level so fondly remembered. We were tired from a difficult drive and found ourselves enjoying a quiet late afternoon nap. We went out for dinner just to see the town, but eyed the dining room. It looked inviting. When going down for breakfast we both agreed that our next trip to Solvang would involve a stay at the Petersen Village Inn.

Room Tip: A very good location for the Summer Theatre events - a few blocks away. Close enough to walk, far e...

Stayed for two nights in March and felt like I was staying in one of the best hotels I could have selected. The front desk was very friendly and helpful from the onset as was the rest of the staff. Our room was beautifully decorated and well appointed for comfort.Service was first class from bellman,houseman,to wait staff in the restaurant. Continental breakfast was delicious. It included juice,coffee,tea,ham,cheese,hard boiled eggs, pastries and fresh fruit.Room service for coffee,tea and ice were always delivered quickly . We hope to go back to Petersen if we ever travel back to Solvang.

Room Tip: All room are 4 diamond !!

Any hotel with a facade like the Petersen Village Inn is worth consideration. We arrived in Solvang in the early afternoon and the Petersen Village Inn looked comfortable and inviting. The grand piano in the reception area bode well, as did the copious amount of paneling on the walls. The desk clerk was friendly; the uniformed bellboy polite and did not push himself on us. The room was very nicely appointed with plenty of space and exuded comfort. The sort of room one could spend more than one day. Complimentary breakfast was a treat, with orange juice, fresh fruit, coffee, cold meats and cheese, and freshly delivered pastries from Mortensen's Danish Bakery less than a block away. How often does one see a bakery worker walking a tray of fresh baked pastries, covered with a white sheet, to a breakfast room in a nearby hotel! The Inn is a bit on the pricey side but the memories are worth it to us. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the inner courtyard may be quieter but our room, facing away from the Main Street was q...

Stayed here for three nights midweek in February. Great clean room, super helpful staff (asked to upgrade to two beds as my partner was super sick and sharing a bed was going to mean no sleep for either. was shown two rooms to pick from, both of which were great and the upcharge was totally reasonable) and the location is great! Continental breakfast is a bit skimpy, but fine. Would highly recommend.

In all honesty, I wasn't all that thrilled with staying in Solvang, because I have always felt like, once you've been there, you've been there! BUT....we were traveling with friends that had gotten a great deal through groupon at a different hotel. By the time I tried to book a reservation at their hotel, they were all sold out. So, I took a chance at the Petersen Village in and from the moment I called, these people were so nice and top notch in the customer service department. I had mentioned that I missed out on a groupon opportunity and they basically made a special deal for me that was just like that of my friend's. And they upgraded our room for just a very little bit more $$. So, I was extremely pleased from the get go. The room was quite nice, spacious, very clean and had a lovely view and small balcony. Also, we were blessed to get the room with a fireplace.

Also, we ended up really enjoying our walk around town....way more than I would have imagined. The bonus was, we went mid-week, so there were zero crowds. All in all it was an extremely pleasant stay and I would definitely go back to this place.

Room Tip: Ask for the fireplace / balcony room. Also, see if they will throw in any wine tastings with your b...

We have stayed many times at this wonderful inn. It is always a treat. It has a beautiful old world charm, very comfortable rooms, wonderful service and a delicious breakfast. The breakfast consists of hard boiled eggs, ham, cheese, breads, cereal, fruit, fresh squeezed juice, great coffee and the best part: fresh-baked danish pasties. They also provide complimentary wine tasting at local establishments. This is our favorite place in Solvang.

Room Tip: Our room faced the courtyard and was very quiet.
