“Memorial Day weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Right in the center of Solvang. The location is the best asset. The staff friendliness and professionalism were also great. The rooms small but clean with walls perhaps a bit thin. The Memorial Day weekend crowds made the ability to walk through the town priceless.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the 'end' rooms - too near foot and vehicular traffic

I stayed at the King Frederik Inn with my mother for a weekend. We booked this hotel at the last minute and we didn't have a lot of options. We read reviews on Tripadvisor and thought that it sounded pretty decent. Going in with reading mediocre reviews we weren't expecting too much, mostly just needed a place to rest our heads at the end of the day. I don't think this hotel exceeded our expectations, but we certainly were satisfied with our experience.

We were on a second floor room in the corner facing the pool. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed having our own coffee pot in the room. The light switches were all switched around so that took a little getting used to. I did find an earwig-looking bug in my bed the first night, but that was the only bug we saw the rest of the trip.

We laid out by the pool one day and we enjoyed the temperature of the pool and patio area for sun bathing. The hotel is right in the middle of the town so there is a lot of activity happening, and we enjoyed that while we sat and people-watched from the pool. At night there were some bands performing across the street and while they weren't super loud we could hear EVERYTHING because the walls are that thin. The rock bands felt like they were performing in the next room, not across the street in a restaurant.

I wouldn't stay here if you are expecting a high-class fancy hotel, but if you need a simple easy-going hotel this would be a great option. The convenience of being located in town is great!

Positives: Location, price, cleanliness, and continental breakfast.
Negatives: Nothing really, just older looking rooms.
Bottom line: If you're looking for a centralized spot and don't care about fancies, stay here.

My husband and I went to Solvang over the long weekend and stayed at the King Frederik Inn. We were pleasantly surprised! The hotel is perfectly located in town. The hotel isn't 4 stars but the rooms are clean, and the beds were really comfortable and staff was friendly. We will be staying ere again.

Located in the heart of Solvang this place is not extravagant, but the rooms are clean and a short walk to shops and breakfast spots.

If you're just looking to lay your head after a wonderful day of wine tasting, you can't do much better.

Room Tip: There are no elevator, so choose a ground room for easy unpacking.

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean. On the other hand, the walls are very thin and the furnishings are aging. However, the very best part of the motel is the location. Everywhere is within easy walking distance around town. I would stay here again.

Average room, I guess maybe a little below.

Coud use a GOOD renovating.

The check in clerk was very friendly and helpful which is always a BIG plus :)
Close to all the shops - also a big plus.

But rather noisy and this is never good for me as I am a very light sleeper -

we had a special to stay 2 nights get the third free but we only stayed the 2 .

The housekeeping left decaf coffee whcih we dont use-
UGH!!! however the lobby has free coffee and pastries which is very nice .

Room Tip: If you are a light sleep ask if they have a quiet room location
