Booked a nights stay from Travelocity for a last minute day trip to the area. Was happy to find out my reservation including all fees, nothing like paying online only to be faced with more charges at check in. Found room to be incredibly large. In fact our 2 queen bed room included an extra full sofa so it would...

This hotel is located within walking distance of downtown Solvang and has free, underground parking. The check-in experience was fine, but not very welcoming considering it's located in such a quaint, wonderful town. We weren't given any information about town, breakfast, pool, etc. We really enjoyed the breakfast included and loved the view of Hans Christian Anderson park from our...

Stayed for a few nights in this great little town. While checking in we were greeted with a warm welcome and homemade cookies. Mike and Jen showed us the property and gave us some great tips for around town and a few of the local wineries We really enjoyed our visit the exceptional hospitality and would definitely stay again.

Stayed at this property for 2 nights with my wife. Horrible experience. Paid $ 700 for 2 nights and was hoping for a nice luxurious experience for a weekend getaway with my wife. Extremely noisy rooms. Couldn't sleep all night both nights. Hotel is very old and right on the busiest street in town. Traffic noise continued all night. Complained...

We stayed here with family for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year's. It's a good location at one end of the town, so it's a little bit quieter, but just minutes from stores and restaurants. The morning of the day we were going to arrive, I called to request a crib for my granddaughter hoping it wasn't too late....

The rooms are nice & spacious. Comfy bedding. If you happen to get a balcony, its got a peaceful and private view of trees & a beautiful hillside. We needed a handicap room & got one, but our tub wasn't a walk in shower but we made the best of it. Breakfast is a great deal...Many things to choose from,...

This Holiday Inn Express ranks amongst the best in the brand. The location is excellent, just steps from the centre. From arrival, where we were asked if we need help with the luggage, right through to departure the staff were helpful. The building has a sympathetic architecture to the town. There is a small outdoor heated pool and whirlpool. The...

Clean rooms, friendly front desk people. Parking can be a little tough during busy times, but overall an easy place to stay. The ice machine and vending machines work well. Just steps away from great breakfast places.
