“Very sweet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We were on our way up from Ojai and decided to stay in Solvang for the night. We were so delighted in finding "King Frederik". The woman at the front desk was so nice and we got a great room by the pool. The room was very neat and clean, and comfortable bed. The only disappointment for me was the hot tub did not open until 9:00a.m. I love a hot tub in the morning with my coffee! Other than that it was a very pleasant stay!

We had stayed here a few times in the past and liked it but they have done some simple but very important updates. New beds, a.c. nice bathroom updates, double paned windows. This is very nice place in the centre of town, close to everything. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The pool and whirlpool are very nice and clean. Pricing is decent also. I can recommend this property any time. They have a nice variety of room types. One of the best deals in town. Very comfy. The beds are very nice. Great place to enjoy a little time of shopping and food. Our room has a very nice balcony overlooking the pool. Don't miss the Danish pastries and coffee.

Room Tip: Second story east wing is quiet.

We were on our way back down the coast and knew we wanted to spend our final night in Solvang. There were not many rooms left, and The King Frederik Inn was very affordable. The kids swam for a few hours in the afternoon. We also walked around the cute little village, and I fell in love with this town. You truly feel like you are in Denmark. All of the shop owners are very friendly, and I spent too much money in several of them! We will definitely go back to Solvang again, and would stay at the King Fredrik Inn. If you are planning on too going on a weekend, I would make an advance reservation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the pool and not the Main Street, also, ask for a patio.

This place is good for the price that we paid. I think we got a good deal by purchasing their wine package deal for 2 people with the hotel. It was well worth it and the tour guides picked us up onsite and dropped us back off. Wonderful since no one I know wants to get a DUI.

I stayed here the middle of June on my way home. I am a senior and am very fussy about where I stay when traveling alone. The Inn was in the middle of town next to the visitor information booth and you could walk everywhere. I checked out the room before I said yes and two of the things I liked was that there were no windows facing the parking lot and the large sliding door to the pool area had sheers under the drapes so as long as I did not have a light on I could keept the drapes open and no one could see in. Even though this room was on the ground floor (a no-no when traveling alone) I felt safe. The room had a fridge, micro, comfortable bed, tolietries and was clean. I did not use the pool but the hot tub was just the right temperature for staying awhile. The check in lady was very nice and helpful and the checkout lady was polite. The breakfast of coffee, juice and pastries was ok but by the time I arrived the pastry selection was limited. I thought it was a good value for $99 but I stayed the middle of the week and they raise their prices on the weekend and holidays. They also had a coupon for a discount at Solvang Restaurant. I had corn chowder and ableskivers and the chowder was good but with so many other good bakeries in town had I had better pastries elsewhere. My favorite shop was the chocolate store. I will definately stay here again even if I am not alone.

This place is pretty good for the price. The bed was comfortable enough for my husband and I. The restroom was clean and I liked that the sink and counter was outside the bathroom so I can put my makeup on while my husband was using the bathroom. The bars and restaurants were walking distance to the hotel so no need to drive anywhere. For one or two nights this place is fine.

Great location in the middle of Solvang. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was very good. Nothing fancy here but certainly adequate and reasonably priced. We enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it to others.
