About
Description
The Viking Motel is part of the celebrated Danish culture in Solvang. It was originally built in 1920 by Danish immigrants and was called "The Little House." Over the years it has been a honeymoon cottage, a ...More boutique and a doctor's office. The palm trees in front of the motel were planted in 1922. Today, the historic Viking Motel offers comfortable, affordable accommodations with a flavor of old world charm. Conveniently located, the Viking Motel is close to many of Santa Barbara County’s attractions including Solvang’s Scandinavian Shopping Village, the Hans Christian Anderson Museum, the Chumash Indian Casino Resort and some of the Santa Ynez Valley’s finest wineries. Now under new management, the recently refurbished Viking Motel welcomes both American and International visitors to Solvang, California. Less

Lisa J K
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)
