Uncomfortable mattress and pillow

AC did not work and pillow and mattress were hard. Front lobby staff seemed to dislike job and we're not very friendly

Great location, nice staff, awful experience

This was a cute hotel visually & in a convenient location. The staff was very nice & did their best to be accommodating. The main problem we had was that the air conditioning unit was not adequate to cool the room. We stayed in the middle of July & it was cooler outside. The windows don't open so we had to leave the door open almost the entire night. The staff was kind enough to bring us a fan at 2:30am because the temperature in the room was sweltering. The first night, we stayed awake until the room finally cooled off so we could close the door. It was probably safe to sleep with the door open but who wants to chance it? We asked the staff to move us the next night because we were exhausted from the lack of sleep, but they were booked solid. They brought us another fan. We weren't interested in another sleepness night with the door open so we actually left at 8pm. The front desk clerk said she would e-mail us a receipt, but hasn't done so as of yet. Although the staff did their best to make it comfortable, it just wasn't. They seemed to be aware of the heat issue in the rooms and did not seem surprised when we told them the air conditioning was not adequate. I don't understand why they have not addressed the problem or at least include a warning that says the rooms are hot - very hot. It would have been more comfortable to sleep on their patio.

We loved this place!!

Very charming hotel with a perfect location just off the main street. We were in the king tower with a view of the hills behind Solvang. The room was wonderful and it was cool enough in the evening to use the freestanding fireplace. If we had to make any constructive criticism, we would say get a stand for the TP so someone doesn't wrench their back reaching for it and put some kind of caddy or shelf in the gorgeous shower for products. All was forgotten when I tasted the scrambled eggs at breakfast--the best I've EVER tasted!!

Great location!

It was a comfortable one night stay. We stayed Sunday night and checked out Monday morning hoping to avoid the crowd, but were surprised the next morning during breakfast to see so many guests. We stayed in room 102 which is right across from the breakfast area, so around 7am when they start serving you'll start to hear people chatting. But we didn't mind it too much because we wanted to get breakfast early too. Another thing was since our room was so close to the back parking lot we could hear people dragging their luggage to and from their cars during the morning and at night. The stoned walkway made it so we were extra aware of them. We enjoyed the cottage area with their little bridges and ponds. Great place to snap some photos.

Way Over Priced and Over Rated

You would be much better off going to another motel, either in Solvang, or 2.9 miles away in Buellton. The accommodations here were very mediocre, and the price was high. Solvang is a village that closes at 5:00 p.m. You're not missing anything by staying in Buellton, and driving in. The next day, I stopped at other motels in Solvang to compare, and they were nicer, for less.

Nice sized room

An excellent, tucked-away location that's still walking distance to all our favorite Solvang spots. Very large rooms and easy street parking.

Truely enjoyed our stay.

Nice clean rooms. Close to the main street where all the shops and restaurants are located. We would definitely go back there again.
