We recently stayed at the Hamlet Inn with two other couples traveling together. My brother had called to hold the three rooms, and upon arrival the manager gave my brother a discount on his room, but didnt extend a discount to the rest of our party paying separately on each room. Just seemed really odd, and gave a poor impression...

During a 3 week tour of southern California, my wife and I stayed in 7 different hotels/motels, all of which were chosen primarily based on Tripadvisor reviews. While the Hamlet Inn was OK for the 2 nights we stayed in Solvang, we ranked it lower than the the other six places we stayed in. Re-reading reviews after having stayed in...

Take an old motel, clean it up, use creative minimalist fixtures and you will have the Hamlet Inn. We arrived after 6pm and did not have the opportunity to really enjoy what Solvang has to offer, but it was obvious that the Hamlet was in the best location when it came to exploring the town. The rooms are clean and...

Stayed here for one night and the motel is wonderful. If you are looking for a 4 star hotel, this is not the place for you. The rooms are in the Scandinavian style so are a bit minimalist looking, but everything is there and the rooms are quite spacious, very clean, and comfortable. We were there for the 3rd Wednesday...

Awesome, affordable, nice staff, great location. My favorite hotel ever! We got coupons for danishes - to the cafe across the street. Walked everywhere. Clean, comfortable, would definitely stay here again.

The Hamlet Inn is spotlessly clean and the simple modern room decor is a welcome change from the usual hotel bedroom. Friendly and efficient front desk made check in a breeze. Free bicycles to explore the town are a great idea. Being in the centre of town means restaurants and bars are close by, but also gives a bit of...

My niece and I had the opportunity for a quick little get away and we picked Solvang. Quaint little town and The Hamlet Inn was a quaint and very accommodating place to stay. We had lots of room and nice beds and bedding. The price of this hotel/motel was very reasonable.

This is a motel; not Inn. So if you're expecting the comforts and amenities of an Inn, you're going to be disappointed. The room was clean, which is most important. That said, it felt like a Motel 6 with a Danish sheet on the bed. In terms of CA motels in a tourist area, the room is not worth paying...

On a recent visit to Santa Barbara County wine country, we decided to stay at Hamlet Inn based on the clean design, value pricing, and convenient location. While some reviewers found it too spare, we preferred it to the many outdated floral-patterned or high-priced alternatives. True, it is mostly outfitted with inexpensive Ikea furnishings, the dimmable light fixtures were a...

The Hamlet is right on Mission Dr./Hwy. 246, across the street from Paula's Pancake House and the Solvang Brewing Company. We had room 4 which is located near the office and its window faces Mission. The shower had been recently re-tiled. The water pressure was good and the water hot. The sink was modern and sleek, but it was detaching...
