We stayed here because I remembered a visit from long ago when I found the town to be very charming. It still is...in a way. Since we were only here for a short time I found this motel on line and decided to try it. It is clean, the bed was comfortable and it was quiet. The woman who met... More

This is a small, older motel with dated decor. The rooms are of good size and everything worked well, but it's definitely a two-star motel and nothing more. This motel is right at the start of Solvang, coming from the 101. There are many motels closer to the Danish shops.

Went to Solvang to visit family and came here. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and me feel like family. My room was surprisingly clean with a refrigerator and and the breakfast was great. For the cheap price I paid I will defiantly come back here if I'm ever visiting again.

We (my husband and I) stopped here as a mid-point on our road trip from Santa Cruz to San Diego. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and in lieu of a continental breakfast, they provided a coupon for a free coffee and pastry each at the Olsen bakery across the street. Our room was clearly older, but it had... More

This is a late 40s to early 50s motor lodge. My wife and I first stayed there on the last night of our honeymoon as we were working our way home. We were tired and just needed a place to crash for the night. It turned out great. It is located walking distance to everything in Solvang and was a... More

Used coupon and got a good deal for 2 days. They gave me breakfast coupons, wifi, a clean room with refrig... A good location, parking and everything within walking distance. Especially liked hands on style, owners(I assume) are very concerned that a good stay is important.

This place is absolutely amazing for the price. Johnny and Tracy were super friendly, they made me feel like I was family. It's located right in the middle of town, right across the street from the brewing company so we didn't even need to call a taxi after a night of drinking. For breakfast they give you vouchers for Olsen's... More

Stayed 2 nights during the greyhound fest. Room was shabby, dilapidated and filthy. At $160 per night plus a $15 fee per dog, this place was a total ripoff. The drapes were dirty and full of holes. The hanging light fixture looked like it hadn't been cleaned in at least a year. All the baseboards, moldings and bathroom door were... More

My husband and I made a reservation for two nights. On our first morning, I noticed that our receipt read that we would be checking out that day, so I went to the office to clarify that we'd be staying another night, then we went about our day. When we returned to the room that night, I immediately hopped in... More
