I had heard that they had done a makeover of this place not too long ago and they did a great job. Everything is clean and modern. Two sinks in the bathroom and a nice glass shower stall. Wifi is good. Beds are comfortable. Staff is very friendly, helpful. The only negative was my sister's room, the bed there in a handicapped room is higher than the regular beds, unusual. She had a hard time getting up onto the bed.
There is a shuttle that runs to the local casino, I didn't use it but those who did were happy with the service.
The in-room coffee, Santa Barbara Coffee, was excellent, and there was coffee in the lobby in the mornings also.
Location is great, you're right near downtown Solvang, within walking distance of a lot of great stores and restaurants.
