Check in was pleasant and friendly, room was in rear, second floor but comfortable and quite adequate. Continental breakfast, basic bagels, some danish (not great) cold cereal and the usual trimmings. Next time I'll get coffee and eat out. Location just about perfect, right on rte 246 and I block to main shopping and restaurants-what could be better.

We had a lovely time at this hotel on a 3 week road trip of Southern CA. Our room was large, homey and comfortable. It was the corner room with windows overlooking Solvang's downtown and this turned out to be wonderful as the street was decorated for Christmas . The location puts you right at the end of downtown so...

Located in the middle of Solvang, this hotel is a great find. The staff were friendly and made good recommendations. It had some nice perks like free coffee and tea on the 2nd floor all day long and free wifi. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom had 2 sinks - win! I would stay here again.

Room was OK. Needed remodeling. The staff was terrible. The girl that checked us in was RUDE, insulting and just downright unpleasant. She insulted my friend also checking in and totally ignored several questions I asked her. If I had her name (she would not give it) I would gladly post it here. The management should get rid of this...

We stopped in Solvang and we didn't know if we were going to stay overnight and I'm glad we did! We saw Svendsgaard's as we were walking around the town and decided to pop in to see if they had rooms available and they did. We got a ground floor room with access to the pool and Jacuzzi. The room...

The hotel looked unique, just like Solvang itself. The employees were nice, I had no issues checking in. The employee there asked where I was from and she gave me recommendations as to how to navigate Solvang. It was appreciated. The rooms themselves are a little dated, but I did not expect Four Seasons in the first place. It was...

We have been to Solvang many times before and decided on this hotel because of its location to many shops and restaurants. The hotel has a nice appearance on the outside and the grounds around the hotel are very clean. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Pool and spa are sparkling clean with plenty of seating. Down stairs rooms...

Generous sized room. Location a short walk from shopping street. The staff created a warm and friendly atmosphere. The breakfast was uncomplicated and served at the reception area. Would have liked to be able to open window as the AC was too loud to use during the night.

This hotel is conveniently located to the Santa Ynez Mission & walking distance to all the shops in Solvang where they also have assorted wine tasting rooms so you don't need to drive. Also if you ask the front desk, they can tell you where you can pick up the free shuttle that will take you to the Chumash Casino...

Great stay at this hotel. My wife is disabled and we had a lovely large room with a little kitchen area, with table and chairs, fridge and micro. The main room had two reclining armchairs and a real flame mock fireplace. All very cosy and great value for money. Breakfast was in the main reception with all the usual choices....
