“Quiet with nice beds...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Stayed here in early April. Was on bottom floor of this 2 story hotel. I had no idea what to expect except for the reviews, mostly favorable, on trip advisor and the pictures offered by the hotel website and those who had stayed there before. Let me start with saying my initial impression was, I can't believe I paid $200 a night to stay here, not including taxes... There are so many other comparable options for less and better options for the same price. It just felt like they had taken an old hotel, refurbished the bathrooms and paint, added crown moulding and new carpet and said, now we can charge $200 for a room that is worth no more than $130 a night. Hadsten House did this next door and it has a much better feel to it, although they require a 2 night minimum most weekends and we only needed a night. The good - bed was supercomfy, and room was clean and quiet with nice TV - could have slept till noon with blackout curtains pulled :-). The bad - room was dark with curtains open, no mirror except in bathroom - mirrored closet doors had been ripped off and not replaced, No screen on patio door to pool and power blew on GFI circuit breaker in bathroom while running blow dryer "only" and could not be reset. Friends in next room over reported the same issue... To be fair, I did not call and ask for assistance from the front desk, because we were in a hurry and just used the outlet in the entryway which worked fine. The ugly - nothing, lol. Skipped complimentary continental breakfast in morning so not sure of quality. Did get coffee and it was fine. Would have been nice if the cups were bigger vs. the styrofoam ones they provided. Had we stayed on the top floor, maybe things would have been better as far as brightness of room and I would have had a better opinion overall. I would stay here again, but not for $200 and only after I had exhausted other options of which there are many in Solvang.

Room Tip: Upper floor only unless you like a dark room...

We recently stayed here for one night. After I booked it, I read some reviews and they weren't exactly favorable. However, we had no problems with the staff or accommodations. The room looked new, clean and the bed was very comfy! Internet access was easy. We did have a room in the front but there are no windows that direction so the sound of cars driving by on Mission was not a problem. We didn't have the breakfast there, as there is a place in town that we like but we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I guess rooms facing the back or the pool would be better for some, although we didn't have a pr...

We stayed the weekend with some friends. We stayed a Friday and Saturday night with our room being around 159 per night. We were able to move rooms a few times and I'd reccomend that you stay upstairs over the downstairs rooms. The upstairs rooms have vaulted ceilings and they feel much more open. Breakfast is included in your room rate. They have a waffle machine, hard boiled eggs, bread/muffings/pasteries and fruit (apples and bananas. Really close to downtown. Beds are soft soft soft, but cozy

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms away from the street. i.e. 204, 205, 206 etc

I booked a stay for my in-laws through Priceline. Unfortunately, my in-laws needed to change the date. Priceline was very difficult about it and refused to refund my money, so I called the Kronborg Inn and talked to the management. The manager agreed to move the date of my stay at no additional cost. Thank you Kronborg Inn!

The Kronborg Inn is located just outside of the center of town. Its a great value, its clean,
comfortable, and convenient. The bed was great, the room had a refrigerator and microwave and
the breakfast was included. The TV worked well, the room was very quiet and we appreciated the request for a downstairs room at the back of the building. The staff was very accomodating. We will return.

Room Tip: Downstairs, away from the street

I stayed with my family at this hotel when travelling by California on January 2013, this hotel is very good in service, cleanliness, good breakfast, people is friendly at the reception, address is close to the best restaurants and bars like walking distance, I would recommenf this hotel and will certainly stay there again when visiting Solvang next time.

Room Tip: Choose a room that stays in front of the parking lot behind the building to avoid street noise.

Clean and comfortable room. Bathroom was spacious enough and had a tub with jets! We were on the ground floor, and had a sliding glass door that opened to the pool and hot tub area. The location is within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. No complaints.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have sliding glass doors that open to the pool and hot tub area.
