Holiday Inn Express is one of my favorite chains, usually a very pleasant experience, but not in Solvang. The entire property showed signs of wear and tear and in need of a heavy duty cleaning. The first room they gave us was very dark with one tiny window which made us feel like we were in a dungeon. We switched...

Reviewed 6 January 2017 via mobile

This Holiday Inn Express ranks amongst the best in the brand. The location is excellent, just steps from the centre. From arrival, where we were asked if we need help with the luggage, right through to departure the staff were helpful. The building has a sympathetic architecture to the town. There is a small outdoor heated pool and whirlpool. The...

The rooms were dirty and very dated. Also the main facilities were dirty and not at all well maintained. The hall ways smelled really bad. I would definitely not stay there again. Having stayed in several Holiday Inn's we were really disapointed in this.

We had a good recent start for 1 night. The check in was efficient. The good was today, clean and with very comfortable beds. There is a laundry on site and pool, which were jus for travellers in a road trip. Easy walking distance to the township of Solvang, which is delightful and worth the visit.

Booked a nights stay from Travelocity for a last minute day trip to the area. Was happy to find out my reservation including all fees, nothing like paying online only to be faced with more charges at check in. Found room to be incredibly large. In fact our 2 queen bed room included an extra full sofa so it would...

This hotel is located within walking distance of downtown Solvang and has free, underground parking. The check-in experience was fine, but not very welcoming considering it's located in such a quaint, wonderful town. We weren't given any information about town, breakfast, pool, etc. We really enjoyed the breakfast included and loved the view of Hans Christian Anderson park from our...

Stayed for a few nights in this great little town. While checking in we were greeted with a warm welcome and homemade cookies. Mike and Jen showed us the property and gave us some great tips for around town and a few of the local wineries We really enjoyed our visit the exceptional hospitality and would definitely stay again.
