“Average hotel with a cute Danish-style appearance.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

The hotel was fine. The standard room was kind of small but enough for two. The room and the bathroom were clean. The carpet was worn out and the bed mattress was old. It was not firm at all anymore and its springs were noisy. That is my main complaint.

It is. Nice to have the breakfast included. This was good. Better than the average motel, but not delicious.

Overal the room was a little overpriced and this is due to be located in a really touristy town, were even a Motel 6 costs $110 a night.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience you encountered while staying at Wine Valley Inn and Cottages. As you know, we take all feedback into great consideration, and from what you have just told us, we do need to change the mattress in the room that was provided to you, as the number one goal of every hotel is to provide all its guest with a worry-free, stress-free and a relaxing environment, a thing that did not occurred during your stay. Our hot and free complimentary breakfast is freshly made every morning and it is composed of scrambled eggs, danish which we buy from our local bakery, freshly brewed coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sausage, yogurt, waffles, cereal, fruits and many other breakfast related items. We hope that on your next visit to Solvang, we can be your preferred hotel of stay.

Sincerely,
Guest Relations Manager

I was looking for something low key and romantic and i found this little gem in solvang.
The room I got was very cute and full of class my girlfriend and I loved the location thanks wine valley inn. The only thing I would want to see here is maybe a later check out time but other then that it's great. It's a plus if you're military or AAA member.

We stayed at the Wine Valley Inn & Cottages for a much needed get-a-way from our lives as caregivers to our parents. What a pleasant surprise! Our room was so inviting, the grounds & gardens were well kept and so beautiful that we took lots of pictures. There were several pleasant outdoor spaces to relax with fire places for chilly nights. The staff were very courteous, pleasant and helpful. The Inn offers a breakfast buffet every morning with scrumptious Solvang Danish, eggs, sausage, hash browns, juice, coffee, etc.

The Inn is located within walking distance of all shopping & dinning. It was a pleasure and we will be returning for another stay very soon.

My only suggestion would be to not salt the scrambled eggs, for us they were inedible. Scrambled eggs do not need to be salted, the salt draws out the water from the eggs and makes them too firm and watery. Not to mention most people watch their salt intake, we can add our own salt to our individual taste.

We give the Wine Valley Inn & Cottages a "4 thumbs up" and will suggest this hotel to all of our friends!

We loved our stay here. We were especially surprised by the way the staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was everything we had hoped for. Katelin with guest services at the front desk was so helpful and accommodating. She went above and beyond to really make us feel welcomed and cared for as guests here. We have had the best stay here at the wine valley inn and will definitely be returning one day.

Lovely weather in March, plenty of warm blankets and puffy duvets with fireplace logs and decent accommodations, The dining leaves something to be desired. The Wine Valley Inn is lovely with a quaint Danish atmosphere.

The hotel is in a good location off the busy main road, and has a lovely garden with some cottages that I didn't get to see inside, so I can't comment on. There is a hodgepodge of rooms, some nice with updated bathrooms, others small and cramped and even on a third level with no elevator access. We were set to stay there 3 nights, but our first room had a perfume smell, and I'm allergic to scents, so we asked for another and were finally given a room where we could open the windows so we could have fresh air. Unfortunately, we could only have this room for one night and try as the staff (who were very understanding) might, I could not find a room where I was not bothered by the perfumey smells. We ended up in a local Marriott that had allergy sensitive rooms. I would have continued to stay at the Wine Valley Inn if we could have kept the first room we had stayed in. Only a couple of their rooms allow windows to be opened.
