For the price, this place is a steal. I loved the minimalist decor - especially the wool Danish flag throw on the bed and the Edison bulb bedside lights (but the staff should consider dusting these off more often as they are right at eye level). Two of my fave things were that all the lights were on dimmer switches - I don't like harsh, bright light so being able to control this was heaven - and also the large shower with uber hot water. Best shower me and my beau have had in a long time. The bed was very comfy and I got a great night's sleep. The iPhone/iPod docking station allows you to charge your phone and play your own music at the same time. Two luggage racks were provided in lieu of a dresser, which is fine with me. I don't like putting my things in a dresser where I can forget them anyway. The inn is across the street from the Solvang Brewing Company, which has 12 beers brewed on-site. After a few, we just had to make it across the street to our room. We stayed in Room #6. I didn't experience any of the noise problems other reviewers have mentioned. We travel from Monterey to LA often, and I think this will be the place where we break our trip each time. Honestly, I don't understand any of the negative reviews about this place and I'm so glad I went with my instinct. The day after our stay I'd already recommended it to two of my friends. If you like hip, cool renovated motels with great rates, then this is the place for you.
