We stayed here on a spur of the moment roadtrip to Solvang because most of the other hotels in Solvang were booked up. It was clean, but everything is very old and maintained very cheaply. One of our towels was very obviously patched where there was previously a hole. Shampoo and conditioner looked like sample packages that come in magazines or newspapers. Good thing I brought my own. Sheets were clean, but mattress was lumpy and pillows were flat. TV is an old tube television.
At least it came with a danish and coffee from the bakery across the street.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Viking Motel is part of the celebrated Danish culture in Solvang. It was originally built in 1920 by Danish immigrants and was called "The Little House." Over the years it has been a honeymoon cottage, a boutique and a doctor's office. The palm trees in front of the motel were planted in 1922. Today, the historic Viking Motel offers comfortable, affordable accommodations with a flavor of old world charm. Conveniently located, the Viking Motel is close to many of Santa Barbara County’s attractions including Solvang’s Scandinavian Shopping Village, the Hans Christian Anderson Museum, the Chumash Indian Casino Resort and some of the Santa Ynez Valley’s finest wineries. Now under new management, the recently refurbished Viking Motel welcomes both American and International visitors to Solvang, California. ... more less
