We tried this place on June 26 for an overnight package combined with tickets to the PCPA Theaterfest, featuring "Fiddler on the Roof." We had previously stayed at a competitor hotel. We'll return to the Wine Valley Inn. We went with three other couples, so we could share our experiences regarding rooms. We all love the place. Many of the rooms, especially those just a little pricier than the basic rooms, are different. We paid a little extra and were delighted. Our room was roomy with a sitting area separate from the bed area (just by space, not partition). Two comfortable chairs in the sitting area, not one as in many such places. No desk, however. Maybe people don't come to Solvang to work. Large bathroom with a large walk-in shower, at least in our unit. Another reviewer commented on the fact that the windows opened out to walk corridors, so this reviewer had to keep the blinds closed. Not a problem for us, since we weren't in our room that much during daylight hours. In any event, we could adjust the blinds so that we could get light without letting people see in. Our only negative about our room was the double- rather than queen-size bed. But the bedroom alcove would not have accommodated a queen-size bed in our unit. Free wi-fi without need of password, but my experience was that it was very slow. I switched to AT&T, and that worked fine. Good complimentary breakfast included. Basic complimentary cheese and crackers at cocktail time. Wonderful outside patio areas to enjoy the cocktail-time experience with those of your party and others. We met some new people. This is one of the first times that I can remember when staff members, from desk to service to maintenance, welcomed us and asked what they could do to help us.
