We needed to be in Solvang, CA on business for four nights and usually stay at the Hamlet as its in the center of things there for us. When I phoned for reservations, there was no room available for those four nights, so we booked at another hotel. They told us there were new owners and the rooms have been completely remodeled. Out of curiosity, we went on line and discovered the decor to be very different from the previous, or that of any other hotel we have stayed at. We dropped by to check out the rooms to see if we'd want to stay there another time. We have never seen hotel rooms that were less inconvenient than these; no nightstands, no credenza, no place for toiletries in the bathroom, no table or desk, just a board attached to the wall under the window and a couple basic wooden chairs. No lamps, just a couple dim bulbs hanging on wires from the ceiling at either side of the bed. We were told that the decor is contemporary Danish Modern ala Ikea. If you travel with just a small soft bag and a toothbrush, the Hamlet will work for you, but it doesn't work for us.
