If you're looking for the lowest priced accomodations in Solvang, the Viking Motel is probably it. But be prepared. Our king room ($91 including tax) while OK size-wise, was showing signs of age and wear. When I made our reservation about two months ago (we were in Solvang on a Fri. at the end of May), I was told there was a fridge and micro; there wasn't. There was no in-room coffee and the motel does not offer breakfast. Since the restaurants in town are overpriced (IMO), the cost of breakfast is something you should factor in. The bed and pillows were OK; the sheets were threadbare. I had a hard time getting internet connected and once that was worked out, the internet was spotty and kept disconnecting and then re-connecting. The water pressure in the shower was good. We would probably not stay at the Viking again, but to tell the truth, Solvang wasn't really our cup of tea so we probably will not come to Solvang again anyway.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Viking Motel is part of the celebrated Danish culture in Solvang. It was originally built in 1920 by Danish immigrants and was called "The Little House." Over the years it has been a honeymoon cottage, a boutique and a doctor's office. The palm trees in front of the motel were planted in 1922. Today, the historic Viking Motel offers comfortable, affordable accommodations with a flavor of old world charm. Conveniently located, the Viking Motel is close to many of Santa Barbara County’s attractions including Solvang’s Scandinavian Shopping Village, the Hans Christian Anderson Museum, the Chumash Indian Casino Resort and some of the Santa Ynez Valley’s finest wineries. Now under new management, the recently refurbished Viking Motel welcomes both American and International visitors to Solvang, California. ... more less
