“Charming and quaint, yet upscale!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I started this weekend in a chain hotel, but decided to extend my stay in the area an additional night. My original hotel was fully booked for the extra night, so I set on a quest to find suitable lodging. Due to location and time of year, there were not a lot of choices - especially if I wanted to stay in comfort. I actually looked at rooms at a couple of other locations and walked away (they just weren't acceptable for the pricetag). When I arrived at Royal Copenhagen, I was tired and basically decided I would just stay there even if the room was a little substandard. What a pleasant surprise!! The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was heavenly! I was a little concerned that the neighbors were all sitting outside talking and might choose to spend half of the night drinking, etc., but all were either respectful and went inside at a decent hour - or that bed wasn't going to let me miss out on any sleep!

Helpful, friendly staff both at check-in and check-out, and the location is very convenient to restaurants, shops, etc. downtown. Rooms have mini-fridge, wi-fi, desk-table, dressing area, large restroom, and plenty of space to get around. I noticed they also have a giant chess set on the grounds! The Dutch influence is enchanting...

The Royal Copenhagen Inn puts you right in downtown Solvang. We have stayed twice in one of their second floor pet rooms, and have enjoyed it both times. The room was clean and well-stocked: mini-fridge, flatscreen cable television, adequate wi-fi service, large bathroom and shower, and a small table/desk perfect for work or breakfast/lunch for two people. They have a fun little pool with a patio, lounge chairs, patio table, and lawn for dogs and kids. Continental breakfast is what you'd expect. But the best feature is the "hidden garden" in the back, a gated yard where you can take your dog to run about and "do its business." Price is fair, and considering the access you have to downtown Solvang--tasting rooms, restaurants, book stores, and the park up the road--a great value. If you have a dog, this is the place to stay. Currently they only have a half dozen or so "pet rooms," so make sure you reserve in advance.

We have been to Solvang many times and love the entire Santa Ynez Valley. This trip was to attend the annual Vintners Festival which was held at the Mission. We chose the Royal Copenhagen because of their reasonable weekend rate and the convenient location which is walking distance to literally everything in town. We stayed there two nights.

The decor of the exterior of the complex is very quaint and appealing. The room is pretty basic. I would say that it's only a small step above Motel 6 because of the dated decor and furnishings, but they did have an iron/ironing board, a hair dryer, a small fridge and a coffee maker, none of which are found at a Motel 6. There is also a safe which we wanted to use, but it was locked and the maintenance person was unable to open it. There's also a nice pool and a decent continental breakfast (no hot items other than toast and coffee).

We were unlucky in that there was a large group of loud and obnoxious partiers in rooms all around us, but when we called the front desk for assistance at 12:15am, we got a recording. We were told the next morning that we should have called the police, but I'm not sure we felt that would have been appropriate.

Pros: Friendly staff, clean, perfect location, good value.

Cons: Mattresses are terrible, needs an electrical outlet by the vanity, no management on premises after 11pm until 8am.

We would stay again because of price/location. We're hoping they'll have new mattresses by our next visit!

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Royal Copenhagen Inn. The room was large, clean, a bit outdated, but that wasn't really a surprise. The front desk was pleasant and accomodating. The location is great. We would stay here again.

Gave three stars due to dated decor and lack of window curtains. Had room 121 in a corner. Pros: King bed (comfortable) with warm duvet, chair, table and 2 chairs, flat panel TV, roomy bathroom, fridge, walking distance to many places, no street noise. Cons: room above was noisy one night, room had blinds but needed curtains badly to block night time and early morning brightness, shower was too restrictive (of course, isn't that the problem in so many CA hotels?), NO microwave. Also, outside the bathroom was a nice vanity counter area where one person could have been drying hair or doing makeup while someone else was using the bathroom--but there was NO electrical outlet near it!! Nor a stool/vanity chair to use with it!! Odd. There was a pool we didn't use but looked nice, and there was a continental breakfast that we also didn't use. We paid approx $119 on a Sat (holiday weekend!) and about $90 on. Sunday night. I might be off on those prices a bit. We used AAA, said that was their best rate. First night was booked via their site, second night we booked when we checked in. We'd stay here again, but bring some sort of window covering to pin up over the windows.

We traveled with 2 small dogs and the Royal Copenhagen was great place to stay with them. Many people here have dogs. Call ahead, because only certain rooms are allowed to have dogs. Lots of nice grass area around for the dogs.

Good continental breakfast, with danishes (of course), also juice, coffee, tea, oatmeal. Not a full hot breakfast - but plenty of options.

We did not use the pool, but some others did. Was very clean, just not so warm outside.

Room was clean and comfortable, some furnishings were a bit dated, but all seemed clean and functional. Plenty of hot water for showers.

Room Tip: Call ahead if you have dogs, they are only allowed in certain rooms

We loved this place. The staff were very friendly, the rooms as well as the property were very quaint and price was great. So close to the main shopping area of downtown. We would stay here again if stopping in Solvang.
