America's Best Value Inn Solvang

The name on the hotel sign is Svendsgaards Lodge. The lady at the front desk at check in and check-out was neither friendly nor informative in answering my questions. The free breakfast was Danish, cereal, apples, packaged oatmeal, milk, coffee, tea, and orange juice. It was monitored by an employee and you have tell them what you want and they'll give it to you. The room was very dated and had a musty smell. The bed was fairly comfortable. I'm glad I got this room with an Orbucks discount. It's not worth the full price. I wouldn't recommend this place nor will I stay here when we visit again. The location is at the north end of the Solvang tourist area.

Convenient location

This was the perfect location for several family members to stay for a wedding and mini vacation. Conveniently located within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Good parking access. Loved the pool! too bad you couldn't use the hot tub after 9pm. I would have loved a good soak after a night of dancing! The rooms could stand some updating such as new wallpaper and decor, but the bed and linens were clean and comfortable. The towels were a little skimpy, especially the pool towels. Overall, good. I would stay here again.

restful, relaxing and cozy. . . .we likely will return to THIS hotel

We loved the closeness to the shopping. The staff was quite professional and proficient. The ONLY slight flaw in the accommodations was that the TV reception was not always stellar. . . .with the fuzziness and (at times) limited reception.

Perfect location!!

I have always noticed this quaint little Scandanivian hotel every time I went to Solvang but never had the opportunity to stay there. This was the least expensive place to stay during the 4th of July weekend & it was absolutely perfect!!! Other than driving to the wineries we never had to move the car...wonderful! The hotel was safe, quiet, comfortable, pleasantly but slightly upgraded. Fabulous shower & comfy beds were inviting! No bottle openers for wine or other items so take your own. Amazing jacuzzi & pool! Just a really great place to stay! Enjoy!!!
