“Great value in Santa Ynez wine district”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

We stayed at the Royal Copenhagen Inn in early January 2013 and got a very economical 'special' rate booking ahead via the hotel's website. Our room was perfectly fine and comfortable with all amenities as promised - good value accommodation.

The location has its pros and cons.

The Royal Copenhagen Inn and Solvang are a good location as a base to explore the wineries and other towns of the Santa Ynez Valley. There are a number of restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance, although the choices for evening dining didn't offer a lot that appealed.

While at first glance, Solvang appears to be a fascinating picture postcard location, it gradually becomes apparent that there is nothing in the town that is genuinely Danish or with any historical merit. In the end, Solvang township is a bit like experiencing the illusion of a themed hotel in Las Vegas - no casino, but instead a few pastry shops and a couple of fake windmills selling tacky tourist items.

So, we'd recommend the Royal Copenhagen as a good place to stay - just don't waste time in Solvang which has little to offer.

We have been going back to the Copenhagen Inn for several summers now. We bring the whole family: my husband and I, our young adult son, our elementary school age daughter, and my mother. The hotel has great accommodations for family. The staff is friendly and helpful. The pool is great. There is a barbecue area if you want to cook your own dinner. The serve a nice continental breakfast. The shops and restaurants are steps from the hotel. There is something for everyone in our family: toy stores, bookstores, knick-knack stores, shoe stores, coffee houses, and nice restaurants.
One year we were there for Fourth of July and we were able to walk to the sidewalk and watch the parade! A lovely time every time we go.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room request it away from the pool area. We requested to be right next to the p...

We were amazed to get a lovely room at the Royal Copenhagen for a pittance (lowest room cost on a three week trip). We had the pool to ourselves (end of Sept.) and enjoyed sunning. The room, while not spacious, was very comfortable.

Room Tip: We had an end room just before the entrance to the breakfast room but were not disturbed by any noic...

My husband booked this hotel for one night for a quick getaway weekend. I found an Internet rate of $109, which, given prices of other area hotels, gave me pause. Still, I decided that it was worth a risk, and I am so glad we tried it! While not fancy, our room was spacious and comfortable. The folks who manage the place obviously care about it. If you are particular about toiletries, you might want to take your own; those provided by the innkeeper are sufficient but not anything special. They serve a reasonably good continental breakfast, but if you're really a fan of the first meal of the day, walk down the street to Polly's Pancake restaurant.

We won't hesitate to return to the Royal Copenhagen Inn.

I always take my pup with me when I travel, which can sometimes be costly and difficult to find a hotel. My boyfriend and I trekked up to Solvang last year and stayed in this wonderful hotel. Our room was huge and clean and best of all didn't cost an arm and a leg! We loved that we had parking right next to us and a little area to let my pup potty. The giant chess set by the pool was also a nice surprise! The location is perfect on the main busy street (Mission) and it's walking distance to everything including a little place next door with AMAZING pancakes! I would definitely recommend the Royal Copenhagen Inn for an affordable, convenient, pet friendly hotel.

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend. We have stayed here a number of times over the years and it is always consistent. Clean rooms although a bit dated. Nothing fancy but a good value for the price. We got a king room for $119 + tax using their AAA/AARP discount. Solvang is small and this hotel is located centrally where you can walk everywhere in town.

Since we were taking our dog, they offer some pet friendly rooms. The room was huge and the only bad part about that is the TV (which is a flat screen) is far away if you're laying in bed trying to watch it. ;-) The place looks like a Danish Village with some cottages separated from other buildings. They offer free WiFi but it was spotty on occasion. The breakfast consisted of danishes, Coffee, Orange Juice, Milk, oatmeal, fruit and toast. It was just enough for us. They have a heated pool and there's an enclosed garden area where you can let the dogs roam. It was the perfect place to stay and the prices were reasonable. We've been to Solvang a few times and we'll stay here from now on.

p.s. If you take bicycles, do not leave them on your bike rack overnight unless you have a great lock. Even though Solvang has very low crime, their are still a few people who love free bicycles. It didn't happen to us but it did to another guest.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Mission Drive will be quieter.
