my girlfriend and i decided to drive up to solvang for our two year anniversary. i initially booked a room at another location but switched to the hamlet inn after reading reviews on a few different sites. the room (#2) was one of their smaller rooms, if not the smallest. it was probably half the size of a typical motel 6 room. whatever -- we LOVED it. it was totally cozy and the interior design was just adorable. there was a wall mounted 32" tv, essentially lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling as bedside lamps, chunks of wood as side tables, and a few danish touches on the bed, on the wall and in the bathroom. it it VERY minimalist design, but it really worked in our small attic-like room. there was an alarm clock that also doubled as an ipod/iphone charger (some hotels that advertise "iPod alarm clock" usually mean there's an aux cable hanging out the back; but not at the hamlet inn!) which helped because we both have iPhones and only one of us brought their charger (it wasn't me!). there's a small gazebo outside that we took advantage of when we were deciding where to go and they offer free bike rentals too! we rode our bikes up and down copenhagen, oak and other little streets and even made our way to the elverhoj museum. also by staying at the hamlet inn, you get vouchers for a free pastry and beverage at the bakery across the street. we used them to get a snack for later in the day because we just HAD to eat at paula's pancake house (YUMMM!!!!) across the street. there is literally a pathway going from the hamlet inn to the restaurant. (go there. you won't regret it.) anyway, they're really nice and sweet at the hamlet inn and we're looking forward to staying there again next time we visit.

We are glad you enjoyed Room 2. It is a very quaint room! And yes, Paula's is great. There should be a walkway from Room 2 to Paula's! We look forward to having you all come out again soon.

My girlfriend and I (26 and 23, respectively) were looking for something neat, kitch and affordable during our stay in Solvang. Looking through over-the-top expensive and not-worth-it hotels we finally looked at Hamlet Inn which fulfilled our criteria entirely, with a surprisingly open, welcoming and helpful staff (the friendly owners themselves), clean and cosy rooms with no shortage of space. A lovely atmosphere. And we hardly even payed for it.

The owners/management are really the best part of this motel. They are friendly, helpful and very pleasant people. Be forewarned that they collect payment in full when you check in. If you can get a price under $100/night, you might feel better about the accommodations, but honestly aside from being clean there were a few big misses for us. The parking lot is inadequate (we had to park on the street), there were no curtains on the bathroom windows (frosted glass is not enough), the adjacent motel has a courtyard right next to this motel and people can be heard loud and clear all night long (through closed windows). You can also hear very well through the walls. That being said, the bakery across the street really has a nice complimentary pastry and beverage offered by Hamlet Inn. You could actually go to Paula's Pancake House (next to the bakery) for a full breakfast (delicious) and then use the bakery coupon for a snack later in the day.

Room Tip: It seems less noisy closer to the front office. There are different (2 bedrooms or larger) room con...

We are glad you stayed with us. Your input is important to us and we hope to use your words to help us create a better experience for our guests. We will look into the bathroom windows and some of the other aspects of the room you mentioned in your review. We are hoping to work with the community to decrease the noise level during the later parts of the night to create a more satisfying sleep for our guests.

The Hamlet Inn is a great find.

The rooms are very spacious, with the bed covered in a Danish flag blanket which was a nice touch. There was an ample clean fridge in the room and an alarm clock with an iPod docking station on top. The room was large, spacious and very clean, you could see they have redecorated recently and the rooms are very well maintained with a modern shower room. This family really care for their hotel and their guests.

The room we stayed in was very modern so if you are looking for something quirky this won't fit the bill but was perfect for our stay. It is in a nice central location and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.

We received a voucher for a Danish pastry and drink at the bakery across the road for breakfast. There are bikes you can hire for free however we chose to walk around the town.

I would stay here again if I ever came to Solvang and would certainly recommend it to others.

The owner was delightful and was very helpful, telling us what to do and see in the area.
