Hotel was centrally located and a good value. Walking distance to everything in this small town. Beds were not very comfortable, only other furnishing was a counter under window with two chairs. We booked for price not amenities so I was ok with it

It is tough to find a reasonably priced room in Solvang. With that said, that's about all you'll get here. Very minimal furnishing, tiny bathroom, weird light fixtures. This place is fine if you don't plan on spending time in your room. One plus, there was a little fridge in the room which was great for leftovers.

It seems like every other place in Solvang is now selling or making wine, capitalizing on the booming wine tourism trade. Unfortunately, that has caused hotel prices in wine country to balloon, and Solvang is no different. The price for a room at the Hamlet Inn is steep for what you get, but pretty decent for Solvang. Our experience was... More

The Hamlet Inn is cute, and the counter in the office is tiny. That's the first thing I noticed, it's literally up to knee height. Checking in, we were given room keys that didn't work, and so we were moved to another room. I guess they couldn't get into that room anymore; so long, room. The room we ended up... More

Decor is very minimalist. Beds were comfortable and staff were nice. Clean, but room needed a coat of paint. Excellent location. Good value. Arrived late and staff called us to arrange accommodations.

Stayed here on our way to SF and was very pleasantly surprised how wonderful it was. The room and bathroom were both very clean and simply decorated (in kinda an Ikea way). The hotel itself if right in the middle of everything, so it was a great place to leave your car and just wander around the town. We highly... More

After arriving in Solvang, I cruised the Main Street and observed vacancy signs at ALL hotels. This was 6 pm on Saturday night. I chose The Hamlet due to proximity to restaurants etc. when I entered the desk attendant quoted me a price of $79....then asked "how many"? I told her "just one" after which she looked down at her... More

Stayed here with friends last year and didn't hesitate to book again this year. Great little hotel centrally located in Solvang. Rooms are large with large, comfy beds. Ac is a bit noisy but was very welcome on a warm day. Bathroom has large shower and is perfectly functional. Great location if you are planning a wine tasting tour.

Hamlet Inn is on Mission Drive, in the middle of all the action. It's a great area to stay in, right across from Paula's Pancake House and a ton of other eateries. There are ton of tastings nearby as well, so it makes for a perfect play to stay, location-wise. The Inn was very nice. Clean, the beds were comfortable,... More

The room was small, but quaintly decorated and clean. The property is pleasant, the staff are helpful, and the a/c is COLD. There aren't a lot of extras - but then, you aren't staying in Solvang for the hotel, I expect. It is CENTRAL to the town, an easy walk to virtually everything you will want to see - shops,... More
