I love Solvang. Nice little town. Even if you forget the pastries and all the Danish stuff, the people here are really nice, super friendly and helpful. Everyone we met in the town - the guy running Jim's service station, the waitresses and bar staff at the Solvang Brewing Company, people in stores or just on the street - were...

Thank you for your review! " A little slice of heaven" is a great description of Solvang and the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley as a whole. This is just the reason we love to call it home. Please come again and visit with us at Svendsgaard's!

The hotel was really nice, room was clean and spacious with lots of parking. The pool area was nice and well needed as coming inland from the coast it was much hotter. A quirky Danish town. Very pretty with lots of windmills & lights. The only problem is that all but 3 places closed by 7pm so not much to...

Thank you for your recent stay with us in Solvang. Yes, a bit of a sleepy town as you are correct in stating the shops all close by 5:30- 6:00. Most of the restaurants stop seating at 8:00. It's best to arrive in Solvang early afternoon or plan on departing late afternoon or even better to stay with us a...

Love this Hotel. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast, Plenty of space in rooms with lounge chairs and some with fireplaces. We have stayed at Swendsgaard's Lodge for five years in a row and will be going back next year. Thankful for elevator when we had a room on the second floor. Very quiet and perfect area to walk to town....

This hotel is beyond cute! I was so excited at check-in because the appearance exceeded my expectations, I actually got emotional :) My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. The location is great as it is at the end of the main street so you can go explore on foot and easily return. Our room was a...

Congratulations on your Anniversary! Thank you for your review and we hope you will come to Solvang again and stay with us. The danish pastries don't just smell wonderful they taste even better, so you may just need to come back to have one real soon!

Last minute stay and we were delighted they had room, especially since it was cheap. We stayed in room #1. There was a queen and twin beds, a fireplace, 2 recliners, microwave and fridge. It felt like staying at grandma and grandpas. It was very roomy too. The breakfast was cereal, oatmeal, pastry, and an apple. Nothing too fancy. Pool...

We were on a long weekend trip that included my nephew's high school graduation. After spending a few days in the Orange County area, we drove to Solvang on the Friday morning of Memorial day. The traffic was horrendous as we live in rural Arizona and were not accustomed to it. By the time we got to the Valley for...

Thank you for your stay with us this past June. Graduation time is a very busy time on the central coast every year and traffic can be exhausting for sure. We are happy to hear you could spend some enjoyable time in Solvang!

This place is old school and charming much like the rest of Solvang. Fits right in and the location is perfect. Room: Huge room with a king bed, gas fireplace, kitchenette and flat screen. It hasn't been updated since the 80s or 90s, but I like the retro vibe. Amenities: Pool, hot tub and wifi, breakfast Location: Excellent. Very close...

good place to sleep - walking distance to historic solvang sites. Room was big and generally clean....nothing luxurious, but acceptable. Wifi was available and pool was heated. Breakfast was served in the lobby---mainly pastries and cereal.
