We have stayed at hundreds of hotels over the last few years. Basically, this is a good hotel with all the conveniences and a good location in town with some flaws. The positives: clean room and breakfast area, good wifi, small HDTV with HD signal, fantastic water pressure in shower, good room lighting, comfortable bed, good a/c, convenient under hotel... More

August I am writing regarding my case with Holiday Inn Express on 1455 Mission Drive, Solvang, Ca. My complaint has to do with the fact that the manager of said hotel refuses to refund three (3) nights of room fees charged after I had to leave the hotel early. I work for a research company all over the US. There... More

Dear mapah2016, I have reviewed your reservation and found it was booked as a restricted rate, with a cancellation fee and pre-payment required. We operate our rates that make sense to our individual guests needs. If rooms are available for your travel date, we will always offer the option of booking either restrictive (prepayment requirements) or non-restrictive (can be changed... More

Plenty room for 3 adults, spacious, privacy for bathroom area. Clean, everything in working order, basic supplies. Microwave and refrigerator in the room. Walking distance to shopping, wine tasting, eating, etc in Solvang. Did not have the breakfast or use the pool. Would definitely would book here again.

Stayed here for the second time on a wine tasting trip. The hotel delivers what you'd expect. Check in was a little slow and our room wasn't ready when we got there, although we were there before check in time and they told us they'd call when it was ready, which they did about 30 minutes later. We ended up... More

We booked this hotel last-minute during our visit to Solvang. It was in a convenient location along the main road which we could walk to nearby attractions from.

Super hotel, Solvang is gorgeous and this hotel was in an ideal spot. Room was spacious and comfortable with an excellent breakfast too. Made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. Friends used the pool and said it was clean and warm. Highly recommend!
