Unfortunately for us, we did not get what we paid for. My daughter was graduating in a nearby college. Therefore, all the hotels in the 1-hour radius jacked up their price including this one. We paid $191.00 for a motel that is basically a Motel 6. Yeah, this place is more like a $50.00 motel.

The place is located on the edge of Solvang downtown right on Highway 246. It has about a dozen rooms. The room is sparsely furnished but clean. If you are staying here, bring your own:

1. Towels: There are only a few towels and they are not very good quality.
2. Pillows: It does not look like they change their pillows often so they look sort old and smelly.
3. Sheets: The sheets also look like they are old. No bed bugs but it looks like there is a lot of traffic going through here.
4. Slippers: The hard floor is cold and you don't want to walk barefoot into the bathroom.

We only stayed here because the regular hotel we stay in was booked. We had a miserable stay. The place is infested with bed bugs. The whole place needs to be renovated and fumigated. I recommend you find another place to stay. It took weeks for my bed bug bites to heal.

It's a good place to stay if you are on a budget. It's in a great location. Nice and quiet, if you don't have noisy neighbors. The lady at the desk was sweet and friendly, but our first room smelled strongly of bleach and the toilet did not work. Had to get another room in the corner by the housekeeper's station. It was a little better. It is not the fanciest place, but it is decent. The mattress was a little too hard for us, but after a long day of sightseeing it did the trick. The bathroom was nice and roomy, but the hair dryer did not work. No microwave. No coffee pot. Just a tiny refrigerator. I will say though, the complimentary coffee and danishes at Olsen's were delicious ! That was probably the best part of our visit here.

We stayed in the Viking Hotel as it was the most reasonable in town. Although it was conveniently located, the room was not clean. There were hairs all over the wall in the bathroom and the whole bathroom and room was in need of a deep clean! The room was very tired. I would not recommend this hotel!

We came to Solvang to see the world class motorcycle museum and have some Danish pastries. As luck would have it we booked into the Viking because it was the only place with rooms available and we were so glad we did. A really nice well kept up motel in the downtown close to shops restaurants with a good mini market across the street. Most small independent motels don't honor AAA but the Viking does and gives a nice discount. We stayed in room A which was large and private. If we come to Solvang again we will definitely stay with our gracious host at the Viking

Room tip: Room A is large and private
