“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This is an older hotel. However, it is well maintained, rooms are clean and comfortable, beds are comfortable and the staff is helpful and friendly. It is in convenient location within walking distance of downtown Solvang. The breakfast is minimal but it okay.

I would stay there again if I was to visit Solvang again.

Room Tip: I found that I liked the 2nd floor rooms on the backside. I think they are quieter.

Clean, great location, ok breakfast. Excellent value for $68 per night. If you are sensitive to noise the don't stay here. I pretty much heard all the neighbors coming and going and how great their bike rides were, etc.

We stay here when we go to Solvang. Rooms are cute and clean. We stayed at one other hotel and regretted not going to the Svengaard. Accommodations are dated, but the cleanliness and charm more than makes up for it. The staff is pleasant. It's located perfectly so we don't move the car hardly at all during our visits.

For under $100 a night, this is a great hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable and they even serve a complimentary breakfast with danishes, cereal and coffee, which is hard to beat. The hotel is also in an excellent location, right in the center of town, and there's plenty of parking. The only downside is that I took a lukewarm shower on our last morning.

Just don't expect too much other than a reasonable price and a location very convenient to everything in the small town of Solvang. Cleanliness was good, even though the fixtures and furniture are a bit old and in some cases run - down.
