"Has local charm, chain value"
This was my second stay at America's Best Value Inn in Solvang (though I like to call it Svendsgaards, as the sign says out front). This feels like a local cottage hotel, but its connection to ABVI makes it affordable. This time, we upgraded to a room with a fireplace, and we weren't disappointed. We also got a balcony overlooking the pool/jacuzzi and […] a beautiful view of the mountain backdrop of Solvang. You can walk to wonderful restaurants, bars, and tasting rooms, including a delicious breakfast at Paula's Pancake House. Then it's just a five- to 15-minute drive to the wineries from there. I've definitely found my Santa Barbara Wine Country accommodations from here on out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I probably should not tell you that this is. Y far my favorite hotel in Solvang as I allways want a room to be available when I visit but have to anyways so the place stays in business :) Nice rooms, good staff, great pool and spa, breakfast in the morning by the fire, what is not to love!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel shame about the town"
Lovely hotel though pricey compared to others on our trip down CA. Nice room fairly good facilities but new mattress and bedding - comfy to sleep in. Continental breakfast was very basic ... I don't like paper cups for my coffee but that is just me. But the town --- Oh dear --- Solvang closes at sunset and is permanently in Christmas mode ... very kitsch […] and very .... German (?) not very Danish. You cannot get a drink or anything to eat after 8:00pm in town and if that is the case why would you want to stay?? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Change the name!"
We had a difficult time finding the hotel even though it was on the main drag - the address is in tiny numbers and the hotel is NOT called Americas Best Value Inn except on a small sign below the big sign that says "Svensgaard Inn". We could not see the address numbers until we parked the car in a lot and walked around surrouinding places and ahd to […] ask where this hotel was and we were in their lot - you might let people know it is not the same name! I asked if the pool was heated and was asured it was - WRONG! It was way too cold to swim in and it was nice and sunny out. It is a good location and ok room. Do not eat at Italian restaurant named GECCO - not worth the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient, clean and cute"
Couldn't find it easily cause its a svengard name on outside! ABV in small print underneath. Was ez convenient room with my car steps away. Could walk to everything easily although far side of town was a little of a walk and this is at other end. Room big, plenty of windows, no tub like lots of others , continental breakfast was fair again like lots […] of others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place to stay"
A nice place to stay in Solvang. We went cycling around the Santa Ynez vallen and a bonus is the Bicycle Shop across the street. The room and service was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Did not answer when we checked in"
After having planned a nice getaway for the week-end, nothing could have been worse than not being able to check in when we arrived after 2 hours of driving! When we tried to check in, there was nobody at the front desk. After ringing their doorbell repeatedly, we finally gave up and tried to find accommodations elsewhere. After an hour of finding no […] vacancies, we came back to see if anyone could be reached. The lady at the hotel FINALLY answered us (it was not even that late...around 10:15 pm). We got a room, but only after wasting almost an hour of our time and adding frustration to our trip. We did not feel as if the lady even cared that we had booked the hotel online, and was unfriendly (as if we inconvenienced her for getting her out of bed). In spite of all this, the hoom was clean, the hotel was conveniently located to shops and attractions, and the breakfast the next morning was very good and served by a friendly young lady. They just need to improve their check-in policy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"love this place"

Beautiful location in lovely Solvang- Well cared for spacious rooms, with a great pool in the plaza. What more could one ask for? Relax a little with the breakfast! The meager choice and supply of foods was not put out, but meted out by a server in a window. Please, sir, can I have some more?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great experience"
We felt so comfortable here the one night we stayed. The lady who checked us in was very nice and accommodating. The room was very clean and had a fireplace! It was conveniently located to the shops and restaurants - we walked to them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were a group of six, three couples. When I made reservations a month in advance, I asked for three rooms, each with a king size bed. Two couples were booked at the same location and one couple was given a room further away. Also, your hotel served danish rolls as a complimentary snack, but you should have a sign posted that only one danish roll per […] customer, that would prevent an embarrasing situation.

Room was very plesant the staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitly will stay here again. The free breakfast was very good. Has a nice pool and spa. Close to all the sights in Solvang.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived late at night and the hotel was called "Svengaards" so we thought that wasn't it. We drove up and down the street, finally went to the office, which was dark, to ask directions. There was a room key with our name on it. Turns out "America's Best Value" is a tiny sign, low to the ground. Svengaards is the giant, lit sign. We mentioned that […] this was confusing to man at desk. He was polite but stated he doesn't think it is a problem. Room was clean but dated and unfortunately, we did see a cockroach.

"not much has changed"
We stayed here on the second night of our honeymoon 29 years ago. It is still quiet, rustic, friendly, homey and comfortable. I would smack around the housekeeping staff a little bit, as the rooms could be so much better with a little more attention to detail. Location is unbeatable. Really enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room was spacious and charming"
This was the second time my husband and I stayed at this inn. The outside is adorable--fits in well with the Danish village theme. Our room last time was spacious, but this time we brought our two children and it was like having a suite for the price of a double room! There was a kitchen table in a separate area with a microwave, a roomy bathroom with […] an exterior vanity and seat, a fireplace and flatscreen TV. The beds were clean and comfortable, too. And we had a sliding glass door that led to the pool. Continental breakfast in the cozy, lodge-like lobby included a fresh-baked Danish from one of the amazing local bakeries--and they'll heat it for you! A great place to stay for a terrific price! Also right near all the shops, bakeries, wine stories and restaurants in this cute Danish village. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solvang Americas Best Value Hotel"
Positives: Nice basic room with not a lot of frills at a good rate. Quiet location in downtown with easy walk to everything. Room had refrig and microwave, but I do not know if others did. Concrete building was quiet all night. Negatives: Bkfst was danish and bagels only, cereal would have been nice, and did not open till 7am on a weekday--very late […] for me! No fitness center either. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in tourist town"
Hotel was a stop off on tour of Southern California. Room was very comfortable, fridge and microwave were very useful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very impressed with room and all extras!"
Our room is HUGE with loads of floor space, a super king sized bed, two armchairs, table, large chest of drawers, two bedside tables and mini fridge, microwave and coffee make in unit. Plus a separate dressing area with counter, sink and mirror and also a large wardrobe! The bathroom is spacious with a largish shower, although the shower head is very […] low which proved a challenge for my 6foot+ boyfriend! lol The hotel even has a pool and a jacuzzi, which we enjoyed relaxing in until 9pm :-) Our room price included a continental breakfast, which we didn’t get to try as we had a very early start - even though breakfast started at 7am! We couldn’t get the Wifi to work on our UK phones which was the only disappointment of the stay :-( But the bed was comfortable and the air con worked very well and ensured we had a great nights sleep. The old lady behind reception was really lovely, a good laugh and very helpful - a real asset to the hotel and made us feel immediately at home. We paid approx £65 a night, which makes this hotel one of our best value rooms for our trip up Pacific Coast Highway. Our only regret is that we didn’t plan to stay longer in Solvang as it looks a delightful place to spend some time and this is a really nice place to stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good location with complimentary breakfast"
Comfy beds, old but clean room. Short walk to shops and restaurants. The reception lady had no smile. Free wifi not working in the room, only works in the lobby where the breakfast is. Good service and variety for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Svendsgaard's Danish Lodge is a good clean inn/motel for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location. Great value"
Great value hotel. Breakfast a little basic but the locally made pastries were excellent! Easy to find at end of main street. Large, clean rooms although decor a little dated. Restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Odd that cleaners were in room before we had fully checked out and refused entry to check belongings or use bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a great motel in the scenic town of Solvang which offers quality accommodation at a very reasonable price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cosy - Best Hotel Of Our California Stay"
We managed to get a very large room upgrade I think because we're members of their 'Value Club' scheme. It was really cosy. I wish we'd stayed here longer. Fireplaces decked out for Halloween. Separate shower/bathroom and kitchen areas. Massive, comfy beds and a little balcony overlooking the swimming pool and hot tub. Service was professional and […] you could park right outside your front door. It was a very short walk into Solvang town centre from the hotel and there's a windmill viewable from most rooms, which gets you in the mood for the place. Breakfast in the morning was basic but excellent, with a wide range of Danish pastries (not surprisingly), juices, cereal and coffee. We had a great time here and this hotel was the best of our trip.
