Most of the parking for this hotel is down around the back and in a structure under the hotel building so you will need to walk from the garage to a nearby lower entry and use the elevator. The parking is free. This hotel sits out on the west edge of town but it still in close walking distance of the main part of town.
There was a mini refrigerator and microwave in the room. The room was clean and everything looked OK. Just the standard Holiday Inn Express type of place. The bed was comfortable. We only stayed one night but even though our room was out front (not too far from the main street through town) I did not notice too much street noise. The bathroom sink is located just outside the room where the toilet and tub/shower are located. There are other rooms that look out to the back and I would suggest requesting one of those if you don't like being so close to the street.
There was a complimentary breakfast that provided some hot and cold items. They have pre-made cheese omelets, hard boiled eggs, pastries, yogurt, bagels, fruit, cereal, coffee, tea and juice. It is probably good enough for most people but we like something a little more on the healthier side so we didn’t eat much of what was there. There are plenty of nice restaurants in town.
We use to live in Solvang for a few years back in the early to mid-1970’s and there are a lot less bakeries now and a lot more wineries. We were just passing through on this occasion and we came into town late so we picked the Holiday Inn Express rather than fool with trying to find something else.
