“The only place worth staying in Solvang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Ever since we first stayed here 4 years ago, this is the only place we book in Solvang. Yes it looks like a motel from the outside but once you see the property you'll be pleasantly surprised! The rooms are nicely decorated and there even is a pool and jacuzzi. They offer a complimentary breakfast that seems better than most of the restaurants nearby so save your money and stay here to eat. The food is very good and is buffet style. The restaurant is surprisingly good for dinner if you don't want to venture out. The local scallops are wonderful! The service at this hotel has always been excellent. The rooms are clean and for this area this is our favorite place to stay. The pool is indoor and the jacuzzi is just outside the pool area which also has a nice fireplace. This a great place to enjoy your wines from wine tasting and grab some cheese from the local cheese shop. The location is great for wine tasting as you have many options. A must stop is Rusack just up the road as well as Roblar. Rusack is great if you want to have a picnic while tasting some fine wine on their beautiful patio and enjoy the view of all the vines. Roblar has a beautiful property as well. Last time we were there they offered wine pairing meals if you call in advance. This hotel is right on the main street (Mission Dr.) for this small town so walking to the shops is right down the street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away form the street. Property is located on Mission which gets busy. The king room s...

I really enjoyed staying here. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff was very helpful! THe hotel was walking distance to everything in the town. My only complaint would be that some guests seemed to forget that they were at a hotel and their voices could be heard by other guests. The front desk was very helpful in asking them to be quieter.

My wife and I really appreciated Hadsten House Hotel, it was very affordable, nice clean room, and breakfast included (which was surprisingly good), we stayed Sunday night on a higher room and it was a good choice because the hotel wasn't very crowded and you don't want to listen footsteps in a lower room.The hotel is located just two blocks from Downtown Solvang, we walked to have dinner (as I said very close to the shops and restaurants) and if you want to visit the wineries you'll be there in 15 mins. There's also a market across the street from the hotel where you can find water and snacks. We would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Hadsten House. This was a spur of the moment trip for my husband's birthday. I actually tried to book a room at two other hotels in the area, but they were all booked up. So then I remembered Hadsten House and sure enough they had a room available and they even had a special rate for the night, so I booked it. Again, the stay was great and even came with a complimentary breakfast. The food was even better than our last stay. Overall it was a great bargain at $99.00! This is a great place to stay if visiting the Solvang area....conveniently located to all the wineries and restaurants and the Casino!

This spot was a pleasent surprise. Although an Inn and not a five star hotel or resort, we felt that the people behind the Hadsten were trying to convice you otherwise. Very spacious, clean, quite, modern and well decorated. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding and we received incredible service from start to finish. Worth every penny! Also, everything is within walking distance from this place.

Kind of like a high tech motel from the old days. Very quaint and updated Inn that was a great last minute decision. Was up there price wise but was very comfortable and convenient. The kid at the front desk was great and made us reservations at the Hitching Post for a great dinner. I guess the best question is would we go back? If we did we'd stay here.

We spent two nights at this motel. Our overall impression is favorable. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable bed, very clean, with all the amenities. The breakfast was good, fresh and hot. Lovely gardens on property. Location is convenient as well. The negatives: towels so thin I would hesitate to use them for rags, stains on the carpet, a sliding bathroom door that was difficult to move and awkward to use, and noisy plumbing. This motel could rate 5 stars without these negatives.
