Nice hotel close to everything in Solvang walking distance and it is clean with friendly staff. Downfall is we stayed on the first floor and could hear every movement above us so we did not sleep good at all the first night the people above us partied all night stomping their feet we called to complain and nothing was done second night new people didn’t party all night but still the noise is so agitating not relaxing there at all unfortunately

Very Clean

Although the hotel is "older", it is very well kept. Our room was very large and the furnishings clean. It even smelled clean and fresh. We had a corner room upstairs and enjoyed our view of downtown Solvang. We worried about street noise, but it wasn't a problem. The bed was softer than I'm use to, but I still slept good. Parking was very convenient and we were able to walk everywhere. Would definitely stay here again.

Overnight delight

We had just spent a week at Disneyland and decided to add a night in Solvang before heading home. We arrived late...11:30 pm...and the lodge staff had stayed over to check us in before heading home. The young man gave us excellent customer service. We went to our room and it was spotless. The lodge, although old, was being well-maintained. Same with the beds; not brand new but comfortable and with new bedding. We slept soundly and then had a nice continental breakfast in the lodge and checked out. My husband wanted to go for a swim but the morning was just too cold. Two things about this stay: the ice machine was CLEAN. Believe me...this is not always the case and that little detail shows the level of care the housekeeping staff puts in on this property. Second, as we walked in to our room there was a long table w/the microwave and a lamp. The table had rounded but still hard corners to it and it was right in the way of entering the room. Both my husband and I came home with some pretty black bruises from plowing in to that darn table on nighttime bathroom trips. I reommend that table be sold off and a new, shorter table be placed in its stead. Other than that table it was a lovely but short stay and we hope to return again soon.

Pleasant stay, friendly staff

Pros: very friendly staff. very clean. good value. satisfactory continental breakfast. Frankly our expectations were low due to having stayed at other "Americas Best Value Inns" before that have been quite bad but the price was very good compared to other places in Solvang so we stayed here. Try it was quite old and a few minor maintenance issues but given the price we were very happy. It was much cleaning inside and out than other places we've stayed at similar price level and the buffet was quite adequate (Bagels and Danishes you could ask for and they would even heat in the oven for you; oatmeal, cold cereal, bananas, apples, coffee, hot chocolate, & OJ). The room had coffee maker, refrig, and microwave, and flat screen TV with HBO. Although we didn't use it the pool and spa looked clean (although small). Front desk was very helpful and friendly. Good location at the edge of town (east side) which was walking distance to many tourist spots and park. The next time we go to Solvang we will definitely stay here.
Cons: The air/heater worked fine but somewhat noisy and you had to physically flip the switch to "hot", "cold" or off and then it would just keep running. They used the old fashion regular metal keys to get into the room which I guess was okay but $10 fee if you forgot to return one when you left.
Location: Good location east end of town. Only about 5 min away from Chumash Casino which is why we were actually there (to see country singer Scotty McCreery)

What is not to like?

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
We made our reservation way in advance and glad we did as the town was a buzz with a parade and Halloween events. The Svendsgaards staff is friendly and helpful. The room was clean and a big shower stall. The location of this hotel was great; we arrived and never drove our car until we left. The breakfast was great for us as we eat light and the coffee was great. We plan to go back and we will stay at the Svendsgaards again!
