Stayed 2 nights during the greyhound fest. Room was shabby, dilapidated and filthy. At $160 per night plus a $15 fee per dog, this place was a total ripoff. The drapes were dirty and full of holes. The hanging light fixture looked like it hadn't...More

Owner/Manager is very nice, but Motel is of last resort,not what you expect in Solvang. is close to the shopping and walking distance to everything. Free breakfast across the blvd. If in need I'll stay there again but only if nothing else is available.

This is a place I stay every time I come to Solvang. Older place but clean and welcoming. Owner/manager Tracy is so sweet and concerned for the comfort of your pleasant stay. Price so very affordable!

This seems to be the lowest priced place to stay in Solvang and has several positives going for it: very nice and friendly staff, clean, comfortable beds, good A/C, good shower, good wifi connect, clean smelling, quiet throughout a busy Saturday night, free coffee and...More

Hello, Viking staff and/or Tracy? I believe you know my friend, Tami Emry, who has stayed there recently. She has just told me of the upcoming reservations on Monday the 18th of Aug, staying through until Wed.or possibly Thurs. I am very pleased about this! The timing is perfect! Life has been very challenging and difficult (divorce/separation last 6 months in a 25 yr marriage, facing back surgery; I am having to use a wheel chair because of pain. Okay, so, enough complaining! Ugh! ; - D,) Tami also injured herself 2 weeks ago, broken/sprained ankle, fractured toes,toes, and all on her "GOOD " leg as she is disabled with the other leg! She desperately needs a bath and some quiet, clean comfort in a regular bed with TV, ect. Just a little TLC for both of us for sure!This is just what the DR ordered. I have a laptop and wondered about internet connection. It's not a huge priority, but just curious. Also, will there be a microwave available by any chance? I want to bring coffee to make and just need hot water avail. And, for Tami, she needs a bath and I hope you have a room available with a bath? It's a must with her as she can not stand and shower at this time due to her disability and broken foot. I , too need a bath as my back is bad and I have constant, horrible pain when standing too long. We are quite a pair! Money is tight, so we will bring snacks, drinks, water,and I wondered if the room also has a fridge? We both require ice packs, moist heat and elevation of our legs. I will bring extra pillows. I thank you in advance if you are able to reply soon, tomorrow or Monday early morning. Thank you. Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing on Monday. Sincerely, Lisa Juliette Katnic (805) 636-8894 (Tami Emry's friend, previous guest at your motel (805) 324-3505)

I found the Internet connection to be reasonably good when we stayed here - I spent part of the night watching Netflix and didn't have any problems. Our room also had a microwave and a small fridge, but no bathtub. Perhaps... More
