A gem of a place to stay in SOLVANG, CALIFORNIA If you are in Solvang to see and experience Solvang this is the place. A resort it is not. A clean and well staffed motel, It is right in the middle of town. Super location. We so enjoyed the spa and pool and its location. Easy walking to all the restaurants, Call them for super deals during off times.
WE WILL BE GOING BACK!!!

Room Tip: If you enjoy spas or the pool ask for a room (and there are quite a few) around the pool area.

When in doubt about where to stay, I pick a Best Western. This one is Solvang is nice and clean. It's also walking distance to the outdoor theater. They have wonderful plays in Solvang in the summer time. They could improve on the continental breakfast - just coffee, juice, toast and danish. But, it gets your day started. I've stayed here a couple of times and have had no complaints. Rooms have a microwave and fridge. It's an older motel but it's kept up pretty good.

I just came home yesterday from 8 days in Solvang. The trip was awesome. We stayed at this hotel. I knew it was basic and affordable. The bed/pillows was really uncomfortable. I can say I didn't sleep very well while there. The pool was nice. A few chairs(6) no cushions. The location is great since you are in the middle of everything. Maid service was very good- the room was very clean. If you smoke be prepared to leave the property. We were spoken to about smoking in the parking lot. There were many people doing it. When the neighbors showers went on you could hear the water like it was in your room. Breakfast was nice in the morning. But there were many mornings where there was little or no coffee available. Don't for get to get the code for homebox. We called one night and there wasn't any answer in the office. Overall I would definately suggest Solvang but I would stay else where.

We were pleased with this hotel. There was nothing fancy about it, but it was safe, clean, and in a good location. A great place to stay on your way between Los Angeles and San Francisco! Be prepared, though: lots of shops and restaurants close early.

First the pros: Great Location! It is right in the middle of the Solvang town center so it made everything convenient. Great Price! It is an extremely affordable option. As a result of the price, you are not going to get any thrills, though they do offer a nice continental breakfast (read: danish) and let's face it if you are going to get hotel danish anywhere you are going to do far worse than Solvang. The rooms were nice and serviceable. Enjoyable as a whole, except...

and this brings me to my one con: The mattress was way too soft. I don't know if it was just our room or the hotel as a whole, but the mattress was way too soft for my taste and made my nights sleep less than stellar. Since this is the main reason for a hotel I had to deduct heavily for it.

I say that if they change their mattresses or don't mind soft mattresses then this place is a great and affordable option.

My family had two rooms at the King Frederik this week. Rates were very reasonable. Rooms were comfy. Beds very comfy! All expected amenities provided. Will return here again!
