Kayak, for whatever reason, listed the Hamlet Inn as a 4 star. The price, about $100, seemed high for Solvang, but the star listing seemed worth it. Well, that was clearly in error, as the Hamlet is basically a run-of-the-mill Solvang motel, but less comfortable. The receptionist was very nice, but told us the room we had booked was a...

Thank you for your review. Just this past week, we replaced all of our mattresses to give our guests a better night's sleep. We appreciate your feedback. -Jessy and Angie

We used the Hamlet Inn as a stopover between Monterey and Los Angeles. We had a very good sized double room with a good shower. We had a great night's sleep after a long day of travel. Nice and cheap too!

I just stayed in Solvang for a night at the Hamlet Inn. I was very pleased with the location of the motel. It is right in the heart of the town, walking distance to everything. The outside of the motel is very quaint and cute, but the rooms could use a little more attention. The bed was not that comfortable...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in late July and even tough the city is comical we had a nice night. Parking was right infront of the room. The room was spotless and the receptionist was very kind. We had booked online and booking.com said breakfast was included. I had to go back to ask the receptionist...

Great little hotel in the center of everything with free parking. Nothing was too much trouble for the man at reception. Including coming to our room with his phone as my mum was trying to contact me from England and lending us plates and knifes for our mini picnic !!

Love this little inn! It has managed to strike a balance between simplicity and abstractness with an innovative concept of room space. For instance, we particularly loved the Vers mini hifi in our room which we can easily plug in our music and charge our iphones. The bed was really comfortable, the stylish basin, lamps, etc were basic and functional...

This little motel is in a great location - not right in the centre (so good access) but easy to walk to the main streets. We found the service at the motel excellent. We arrived before check-in time but our room was ready so we could settle in. The guy on reception showed us places to go in the area...

Basic but quirky motel in "downtown" Solvang. Very clean. Quiet. Staff (owners?) were great. This is what I'd call contemporary scandanavian decor. Bed was perfect. Bathroom operated as expected (lots of hot water available). I'm a basic person who just wants a good bed, the bathroom to work and no problems. This fits the bill. Price was excellent for the...

We booked the Hamlet Inn on a very crowded weekend in Solvang, and there was very little availability in the town (Marathon and Mothers day…) . The location was great for walking everywhere, and was directly across the street from Paula’s Pancake House. The room was nice and large but I would not consider it a great value because the...

This hotel is very well located at Solvang´s main street. We´ve stayed for 2 nights at room 10 and found a very clean and spacious room with cute Danish decoration and free wi-fi. However, we had problems with noise. We could hear our neighboors talking all the time during all night. The front desk staff were really nice, since we...
