“Remodeled and clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is an older hotel that has been remodeled. Rooms are okay but the lighting is totally inadequate for reading in bed. Apparently this is a common complaint as the front desk staff said we should have requested an additional. Frankly, that did not occur to me at 10 o 'clock at night!
Attached restaurant is great and complimentary breakfast was very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for an extra lamp or 2.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Room was spacious and tastefully furnished with quite a comfortable bed. The large bathroom was spotless and equipped with American and European type showers. The absence of a safe deposit box in the room was surprising. The hotel has a well equipped spa section with a heated indoor pool. Self-service breakfast is included in the price and included a variety of hot dishes and drinks. This facility is designed as a motel where cars can drive and park by each room door. Nonetheless the lobby area is satisfactory.

Stayed here in May for anniversary, nice location, friendly staff, easy walking distance into center of town, close to restaurants, Wine bars, and shops. Stayed here for 3 nights, wished we had a few more to stay. Charming rooms with fireplace, comfortable beds, great breakfast and restaurant.(very busy, make dinner reservations). Pool was nice but we ran out of time to use.

we didn't use the car our whole time here, we walked in town, sidewalks and traffic signals so don't worry about crossing the street, Took the community transit bus to Los Olivos for day to tasting rooms (didn't have to drive) and the wine tour the next day picked up at the hotel. At night took cabs to restaurants, hotel staff very helpful in calling and called our room when car arrived. If we took Amtrak and their bus connection to Solvang, we probably wouldnt even had to have a rental car.

Solvang is a quaint tourist town north of Santa Barbara. It is also close to many wineries. Hadsten House is a superb place to stay. We paid $103 for a large king room with gas fireplace and a very comfortable bed. The breakfast, included, was excellent. The hotel restaurant was outstanding. My wife and I ordered the pork chop. My mouth waters thinking about how good it was. There is an indoor pool. Finally, this morning the sky was a gorgeous blue - none of the LA fog we left yesterday.

Stayed at Hadsten House over New Years and it was very comfortable, clean and a good value. Breakfast could be a little better, but it is included with the room. Conveniently located to all the wineries in the area and Solvang. Also, close to Chumash Casino which I understand will be taking over this hotel. Will definitely stay at Hadsten House again!

Excellent accommodations. Breakfast buffet is wonderful. Good location for wine tasting. The staff is very friendly and service oriented. The restaurant on the property is very dark, but the food was good.

Thank you for your comments about our property and service delivery. I have taken your review and posted it in various locations for the staff to view; they get excited when they get it all right! Your comments about the dining room being dark are quite correct and I have hired a consultant to upgrade this part of our property so the accent lighting at each meal period will be enhanced. We look forward to your next visit.

We don't know first hand that it is the best, but it was the best rated on TripAdvisor, so we gave it a try. Not disappointed. Room is nice. Shower is great. Fireplace is nice touch. Breakfast was good in a nice restaurant that we also had dinner at. We took the tip to ask for their complimentary wine tasting and had a nice afternoon tasting wines for free. We agree with the other five star ratings.
