“Beautiful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We flew to Los Angeles for the start of our American holiday with no plans in place other than to travel along the Califorian coast to Santa Barbara to stay one night, the hotel prices were very expensive for 3 star accommodation, we decided to travel Inland and were lucky enough to get a cancelation in Solvang at The Frederick Arms, we stayed two nights, it was clean, the welcome was great breakfast lovely , town was just beautiful and to make my husbands weekend, it was car meet! If you get the chance, visit Solvang, you won't regret it!

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

This is an affordable hotel in a great location in downtown Solvang. It is right off the main tourist streets in Solvang, providing for easy walking. It also serves as a great hub for exploring Santa Barbara wine country. It is clean and fairly bare bones, but very affordable for the location. The pool is heated allowing early morning and evening swims, even in cool weather.

Room Tip: Higher floor may be better as the rooms are right along the sidewalk/street.

We stayed for two nights over Labor Day weekend. The location could not be better, right in the heart of town. Solvang was packed, but we could just walk out the door to get where we needed to go. The room was small, but very clean, quiet and comfortable. They offer a continental breakfast of bakery danish rolls, coffee, tea and juice. We will gladly stay here again.

Stayed just one night - but got a good rate and hotel is located in the heart of Solvang, so didn't use the car much - walked to shops and restaurants. The room was large and had a small fridge...didn't have time to use the pool but it looked clean. Internet worked good too.

Situated smack in the middle of the main area if Solvang makes it a great deal. It's easy to start shopping and what's better than to stop in your hotel room and drop stuff off?! Great customer service, we were traveling with a baby and hoped to get a room early for the baby to rest and stretch out. The front desk staff accommodated us, we requested adjoining rooms and got them. Clean pool, clean rooms, smallish rooms, but nicer than I was expecting. Free breakfast includes those famous/infamous Danishes and coffee. Friendly staff, answered questions about area. Basic amenities were included. Parking is basically directly in front of you room. The hotel is split in two buildings, with the pool in the middle and parking lots on either side.

This is a very nice and clean place to stay in Solvang. We like the fact that once we park our car, almost everything is within walking distance. We usually try to stay on a Wednesday night so we can walk through the farmer's market that takes place about a block or 2 away. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We stay by the pool so that we can walk right out of our room and swim.

This hotel is very reasonable, located in the heart of town. It is very clean and has lots of free parking very near all rooms. The breakfast is scant, but there are delicious bakeries and breakfast places nearby. Very courteous and helpful personnel.
