We stayed here last weekend for my birthday. It was kind of a last minute trip, so the only hotels available were this one and Motel 6. The Sideways Inn was $20 cheaper, so I booked it. I am so sorry I did! The ceiling was falling, the wallpaper was peeling off the wall, none of the furniture fit in... More

We apologize for your less than ideal experience here at Sideways Inn. As you may have noticed, we are in the midst of renovations that will ultimately provide a full range of upgraded rooms and facilities for our valued guests. It is a big undertaking and requires that the projects are split up in order to ensure that our amenities... More

This place used to be a Days Inn and there are still lots of things that have the Days Inn logo around the property. I needed a place to spend the night and I knew this part of California doesn't come cheap as far as room prices go. The room itself was spacious and in fairly decent condition. It just... More

I booked directly with the hotel to get the AAA rate. Nice staff on phone and in person. BUT - arrived at 6pm (3pm is earliest possible arrival for check in), registered and went upstairs only to find the maid outside our room talking to another maid, and room wasn't ready. Really? 3 hours after check in time? Went across... More

This place should not be able to call themselves an "Inn". Rather it's a really really bad,dingy , dirty motel. Everything is old, the door looked like child could kick it in. We had a one night booking. Checked in. Went for a drive found another place and checked straight out. If you have booked and can't find alternate accommodation... More

So I found this hotel thru the Expedia app and at a low price as well! What can I say the hotel was clean it's what you expect from a Place that charges you $80 a night. Don't expect a lot of luxury. My girlfriend and I got a king room and it came with a mini fridge and flat... More

Dirty, staff is a joke and if we could of found somewhere else to stay we would have left. Bathroom a mess and dirty walls and light fixtures. towels were paper thin and beds were old. We removed the bed cover and blankets and used only the sheets.

Room was large, clean, and comfortable. Basic hotel for right price. Continental breakfast with toast, yogurt, pastries, juice & coffee. 10 minute drive to Solvang. TV stations are limited with no access popular channels. I.e. Warriors championship game. Stayed 2 nights and would stay again.

Be careful and don´t trust the portier, if you are told you have booked a room with a 1,5 size bed and they tell it is good enough for two people. It is not! Perhaps we were unlucky with our room (don´t remember room number) but it is not acceptable to use such a bed in a hotel. The location... More

I thought the hotel was neat and clean and totally authentic to the way it looked from the movie , Sideways. The value of the hotel was good especially considering its proximity to wine country. The pool and bar was also nice. The hotel does show its age, but if you're looking for the true Sideway experience, it's perfect. I... More
