After driving several hours on our return from San Francisco, we finally decided we had reached our limit and didn't want to deal with rush hour L.A traffic on a Friday night. The answer was a night in the great town of Solvang. We'd get an extra vacation day and I could visit my favorite breakfast restaurant Paula's Pancake House. With no reservations, we started checking local hotels. We found they were all booked due to this being a car show weekend in town. The only rooms available were at the Solvang Inn,so that's where we will stay. The lady at the desk was very nice at stated that we were getting a no smoking room. When we first entered the room I was struck with what smelled like stale smoke, despite the no smoking sign on the door. We were stuck with what seemed to be the last room in town. The room was extremely small and dark (room 101). I decided to take a quick rest before exploring town so I streched out on a most uncomfortable bed and nodded off. I awoke with an allergy like headache. It was a hot day and we had been running the AC. I wiped my hand over the AC grill and a heavy layer of dust fell off. This dust plus the stale smoke like smell which seemed to permeate the heavy old drapes was making it difficult to breath. We turned off the AC, opened both windows and left for a walk. The room seemed somewhat better after it cooled down. This is a cute motel, located in a great location, but it does need a DEEP cleaning. The owner needs to clean the carpets and must clean or preferably remove the heavy, smelly old drapes that retain the smell. If the manager reads this review they need only to inspect the room and smell the drapes to see what I mean.
