I stayed here one night with my wife a 4-year old daughter on my way to San Diego. It was one of the few places with available rooms and I was glad we scored it. We had never been to Solvang and it turns out we were in for a treat.
The hotel itself is very well kept. The room we had was very spacious, the bed comfortable and our little girl loved playing in the pool. It is located on the main road in Solvang, so everything is a reasonable walk away. As a plus, our room faced some woods in the back of the hotel, so it felt very private.
The room came with breakfast and I must say that the lobby and breakfast area were cozy and comfortable. My wife and I were planning on going out for breakfast, but when we saw the spread, we opted to stay. The buffet was well-stocked and fresh. As my wife checked us out, my daughter and I cuddled on the couch in the lobby in front of the warm fireplace. What a great moment!
While I will say this place is very much indicative of a chain hotel, it is definitely on the higher end and clearly the owners take pride in it. Having never been to Solvang, I can't speak for any other hotel, but for my money, I would gladly stay here again!
