I stayed at this hotel years ago and I remember having a nice view and a pretty good room. This time around, I had the ground floor facing the back with bushes and a side of a house. It seemed very dreary in the room. The parking can be a hassle if you have a large vehicle and it will... More

Super comfy beds, great shower water pressure, hot breakfast included. Everything we needed for our group of 40 high schoolers and chaperones. Convenient walking to everything in Solvang including the beautiful mission.

Within a pleasant stroll along the main street through town, hotel visitors can stop by the most enchanting part of Solvang. Along the way, there are plenty of restaurants, coffee and pastry shops. We also rode the bicycles for 15 minutes from the hotel to see the miniature horses and the two vineyards along the way. We had three bikes... More

The hotel is well located and the staff is very friendly. The property is very tired and needs remodeling. We got stuck in the elevator two different times, the staff acted promptly and got it going both times, so I think it is something that they are aware of?. Parking is free which is a plus. They also have two... More

Great Location in the center of Solvang, everything is walking distance so you don't have to worry about parking, no fee for parking and breakfasts was included, buffet/ continental style, save you some $$. Friendly and helpful staff .. Only thing didn't like is that check in time is 3:00 and staff really enforces the time. While in breakfasts they... More

Charming lobby with coffee and cookies waiting for us at check in. The room we were given was nearest the street and because of that we did not sleep. In the morning we asked for a quiter room.

We stayed at this hotel because it has the option of having a room with 3 queen beds. For a family of 5 with 3 teenagers, that was a great option. The room itself was a loft style with 2 queens on the 1st floor and 1 queen in the loft. The hotel is just ok, but met our needs... More

This hotel was a good option for us as we were traveling with our small children. Shops, wineries and restaurants in town are an easy walk. Nice breakfast at the hotel, although many better breakfast alternatives in town. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Overall hotel is dated, but works with kids or if you're on a budget. Central...
