Sheer curtains do not provide privacy or eliminate street noise -- need to be changed! Breakfast okay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to town"
Hotel is built on a slope; one side on the main road and the other looking into to trees. Stairs or elevator are needed to get around and to underground parking. The best thing about the stay was the breakfast. It offered many choices and was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room with two queen beds was very spacious & clean. Continental breakfast was decent. Over all, I was happy with my stay at Holiday Inn Express.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too far from downtown area"
For overnight stay, it was just fine. Very convenient to the main area of Solvang by car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relatively reasonable and has all you need"
This Holiday Inn Express is a convenient, no-frills hotel that is close to many great shops, bars, and restaurants in Solvang. It is at one far end of the "strip" so you can venture around and get back to your room without having to backtrack. The hotel staff is friendly and their breakfast is quite good for a free hotel breakfast - will save you at […] least $20 per person per day, as the local breakfast joints are pricey.

"Seems to be fading over the last year or two"
We've stayed here before and booked directly. We've always requested a west-facing room and got it. This time, we were told that because we'd booked thru Hotels.com, we wouldn't get a west-facing room - EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE AVAILABLE! We got a dark little corner room with a dormer window about 10 feet from the room itself. Everything was a little dingy […] from the last time we were there. We've decided to stay elsewhere next time! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, not so nice breakfast"
Conveniently located and the staff was friendly and cooperative. We were first checked in to a room facing the street, when I asked for one facing the back because we wanted it quite, it was not problem at all. I choose this hotel partly because I had read in review that the breakfast was good. I would not agree with this. This breakfast was the same […] cheap food in most other motels. I had thought there would be real Danish pastry, with all the bakeries in town. However, it was the prepackaged mass produced king. I would stay in this hotel again, and just bring my own breakfast.

"Good for the money"
We had three rooms and 7 people. The hotel was clean and breakfast was good :)Kids enjoyed the pool! Maybe too much, haha We thought it was good for the money. Rooms were a little pricey but we did go on a holiday weekend so that's what we get. We will go back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little noisy during the day"
Apparently there were problems with tbe staircase to the 3 rd floor so they spent all day Monday pounding to remove it. That made it rather difficult to enjoy some rest during tbe day. Thank voodness it stopped at 6p.m.. Still, the best place we have stayed in Solvang. We have been there twice this year and will probably stay here again later tbis year, […] God willing. Best breakfast around! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to town"
The stay was very comfortable. The room was clean and the House Service was quick and friendly when we needed extra towels and supplies. The breakfast is a step up from the normal Continental style that other hotels serve. This is a big plus if you have kids. The front desk staff is the area that needs improvements. They acted like they did not want […] to be there. They need to work on their Customer Service attitude. A smile goes a long way. Overall, I would stay there again.

"very clean and good facility"
very goood....facility and nice continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was nice and clean and located in downtown Solvang within walking distance of tons to do. Also in close driving proximity of surrounding towns like Santa Ynez, Los Olivos and Buellton. The bed was kind of uncomfortable though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable & roomy room to our family. Complementary breakfast is nutritious or balance of meal.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good hotel for the price. Great location in Solvang; can walk right out the door to the shops and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I was only their 1 night, but enjoyed it. Breakfast was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was very big and comfortable, we could walk all over, would stay there in the future!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall is ok, but the aircon is really noisy."
Airconditioner's noise is horrible. We have to shut it down before go to bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, centrally located in Solvang"
We arrived late at night so didn't really spend a lot of time at the hotel. The room was spacious and clean and no complaints. The staff we dealt with were quick and courteous. Since we were there for less than 12 hours, it's hard to say a lot more. The parking situation was convenient, with the garage basically right beneath the rooms, so it was easy […] to ferry luggage to/from car. The pool was sparkling clean as was everything else. Clean is job 1 and they clearly understand that! Nice place Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than my spendy room in Las Vegas!"
All went well, staff nice and helpful, room comfortable & well laid out.Genuine Expedia guest review
From this hotel you can walk all around Solvang. In these warmer summer months it is nice to sit on the deck outside of our room. Our deck had not been cleaned since last summer. Spider webs hanging from everything. I enjoy sitting outside, but without cleaning the deck myself I could not have been out there. The room was nice and roomy but the bathtub […] should probably be replaced. It had deep nicks that took off the porcelain. The staff is very nice and friendly.

"One Nighter In Solvang"
One night stay - on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a 7 or 8Genuine Expedia guest review
A complimentary breakfast is included in the room rate. The breakfast is fabulous with numerous items on the menu. It has a small pool too which is great as when we reached Solvang it was 100 F.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed on a Saturday night and it was the only hotel showing available rooms, probably due to it's being a bit pricy. We wanted to stay in Solvang, however, and found it's location great, within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants. The room was huge, with a large private patio, and faced a quiet greenbelt with trees. Lots of towels […] (an unusual plus!), comfortable beds, and a nice breakfast area. Staff was helpful. Would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything in Solvang is within Walking Distance"
Hotel was in a nice location just on the edge of Solvang and within walking distance of everything. Covered parking under the building is a plus. Hotel staff was unattentive when we first arrived and staff seemed highly stressed and aggravated probably because they said they were fully booked for the weekend and anticipated being very busy? Refrigerator […] and microwave also included in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing we didn't like was our room was split level with narrow stairs - not good for older people. We would request a same floor room next time. The food was very good at breakfast and the manager was so nice, showed us where we could park our motorcycle trailer. Convenient location, walked everywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice convient hotel close to many sights in the Solvang center area. Most of the town is within a 5 minute for eating, shopping, sight seeing, and wine tasting. The city makes a good location for touring the Santa Ynez area and most of southern Central California. The breakfast buffet is nice. Simple but fills you up for a full day of touring and wine […] tasting. I really liked the free Wi Fi for accessing the internet for making dinner reservations and looking up addresses and the hours of the many tasting rooms in the area.

"Great hotel for a family"
Great location, surrounded by shops and restaurants. Short driving distance to vinyards. Free breakfast is a great plus. Will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Place to Stay in Solvang"
Room was clean, and very spacious. Hotel staff were very helpful, and very apologetic when a little "oops" occurred.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good deal & location for the price"
The staff was friendly. The location was right at the end of the "strip" which was great. It only took a few minutes to get to everything. The overall condition & hotel experience was a good deal for the price. We slept comfortably with a family of four - 2 adults & 9 year olds. We will definitely comeback here in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More than adequate for everyone."
This is an excellent value: clean, comfortable and good breakfast. Great for a family that needs a base so they can sight see during the day, not a luxury resort they intend to stay in all the time.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was clean and fine for our 2 night stay. Prices are high in Solvang and this is overpriced for an average motel. Room was missing a chair and a table. Walls are thin and we were on the road side so could hear the traffic. Other side of the hall is extra. Soccer tournament had many families here and we could also hear the running above us for most […] of the evening. Staff was friendly. TV kept cutting out and/or freezing up. Breakfast is fair, not great but convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Hotel for the price range"
An excellent hotel for the price range, clean, modern, friendly staff, and well priced. It's walking distance to all the sites in Solvang and centerally located for travel to Buelton, Los Olivos, and Santa Ynez. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"well suited for location"
Surprised no cofee in lobby at 6:00 am Used as a destination for points north but B fast was too late to use before departure suggest partical B fast be offered from 5:00 am to 6:30 at least coffeeGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, room and breakfast!"
This hotel is located in the heart of town. They have a nice looking pool and jacuzzi - but we didn't have time to use it unfortunately. The free breakfast buffet included pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits and more!!! An excellent deal if you consider what breakfast could cost for a family in town. The room was large, modern, […] and very clean. We will be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicer Hotel in Solvang"
Rooms very comfortable due to large size and up to date furnishings. Very convenient location since it is in Solvang and walking distance to town. One of the better complimentary breakfast with real hot food and not all packaged stuff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was roomy and comfortable. The only complaint is the air conditioning. Whenevr it rurned on, the vent in the room rattled.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was convenient if expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a nice hotel, however we got a room with a very small window and no view. I would ask for another room next time. The views are so beautiful in Solvang it is a shame I culdn't see them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was good, the pool was wonderfully warm, the room clean, the staff friendly. My only oops the whole time was the huge live cockroach swimming in the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good value for the moneyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay in Solvang"
We did an overnight in Solvang on our way up the coast, and this was a good stopover. Quick walk into town for dinner. Also, nice breakfast at the hotel. Great dealGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I'd stay here again"
Good overall experience, the room was very quiet and peaceful and easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars huge plus. The breakfast was just OK but it was included in the room, and the pool towels were really tiny which was just funny to me. Nice heated pool and hot tub always a plus. We payed way too much to stay here but it was a busy […] weekend, so I would try it again off season when maybe the rates were lower. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
