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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

After a long drive and not that great experience of a hotel from a night before, we arrived to this charming place pretty late at night. A nice desk person welcomed us. The inn has elevators, so it was easy with the bags. The room was spacious, clean and nice with it's own kitchenette, which was very nice. We got... More

My family and I are in town for a festival and stayed the weekend here. Very friendly staff, clean rooms with extremely comfortable beds and a great pool area. The complimentary breakfast has danishes from the local bakery and are amazing. Would definitely stay her on my next visit.

Our entire family are return customers to this hotel each year. Most of the rooms I've seen or stayed in are HUGE (except a couple of the rooms in the rear corner - Room #'s 16 & 36).

Svendsgaards Lodge, although built in 1969, has a well maintained exterior. The room we stayed in was a nostalgic trip to the 1970's. The room has a gas fire place, an eating room off of the bedroom tv area, and a vanity area. There is also a sink/vanity with the shower and water close area. Room 206 is a ground... More
