We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Solvang for one night (Saturday) while on our way to Disneyland. The staff at reception gave us a very warm welcome. We were concerned about our truck being able fit in their underground parking structure. The manager quickly came out and saw that our vehicle was too tall to fit, so he let us park in one of the few spaces that was by the lobby.
This hotel is in a great location. You can head out the front door and walk to any place in downtown. We booked a queen bed loft suite, which has 2 queen beds on the main floor and one queen bed in the loft area. There is a tv in the main room and one in the loft area. It was more roomy than I had expected, especially for the price. Also, the room was clean, which helped since my kids like to explore every corner of a new place.
The hotel was quiet for a Saturday night and we didn't hear any disturbances, even though we knew people were staying next to us. The balcony outside the main room opened up to a beautiful view. We didn't stay out too long as it was chilly. We also walked by the pool several times, but didn't get to use it due to the weather. It looked clean, but a little on the compact side. We would have used it had it been warmer.
There is a free continental breakfast that is served in a room right next to the lobby. We wanted to eat at Paula's Pancake house, so I can't comment on the HI Express spread.
Check out was very smooth as well. I would recommend this hotel to my friends as a good place to stay with reasonable prices.
