My husband and I just visited Solvang and staryed overnight at this hotel. The room was clean. The staff was friendly. They include a full breakfast, but we didn't wake up early enough to make it down before it closed. I would stay again.

We stayed for 2 nights in June. Good location right along the main drag in Solvang - everything is in easy walking distance. Check-in was easy; on the whole we found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Didn't use the pool but it looked okay. The property is older, and it is true, as other posts have observed, that...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, Only thing is that the elevator was out of order in the dining area, and my husband was able to take the stairs down stairs to the bathroom, other then that staff was very friendly and the hotel was great.

I am not fussy and can pretty much allow most businesses that fall short of a promise or an expectation. This Place does not meet even the lowest of standard. I give it a two star which I believe is generous because Spenser at the from desk was very nice and helpful. The facility is pretty run down. That was... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel once and have stayed at a handful of the other nearby hotels as well. In our opinion, you can find better value for your money nearby and find a hotel with more character. We liked our room and it was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was nice but not nearly as... More

It was a last minute decision and this was the only hotel that had rooms left for this evening. The front desk staff was nice but for paying 269.- a night one expects for the elevator to work.

Great location in town. You can walk everywhere and if coming by Amtrak/bus the stop is 5 min walk away. However for $270.- per night it's way overpriced but then everything in Solvang is overpriced. The bed was comfortable and room large, we had two queen beds on 3rd floor. It was clean but very dated and the carpet old.... More

We stayed for a couple of nights using the hotel as a base to explore the wine region. The hotel was a very convenient location but it is showing its age. Everything was adequate but nothing was much better than that.
