Extremely noisy rooms. Couldn't sleep all night both nights. Hotel is very old and right on the busiest street in town. Traffic noise continued all night. Complained...

We stayed here with family for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year's. It's a good location at one end of the town, so it's a little bit quieter, but just minutes from stores and restaurants. The morning of the day we were going to arrive, I called to request a crib for my granddaughter hoping it wasn't too late....

The rooms are nice & spacious. Comfy bedding. If you happen to get a balcony, its got a peaceful and private view of trees & a beautiful hillside. We needed a handicap room & got one, but our tub wasn't a walk in shower but we made the best of it. Breakfast is a great deal...Many things to choose from,...

This Holiday Inn Express ranks amongst the best in the brand. The location is excellent, just steps from the centre. From arrival, where we were asked if we need help with the luggage, right through to departure the staff were helpful. The building has a sympathetic architecture to the town. There is a small outdoor heated pool and whirlpool. The...

Clean rooms, friendly front desk people. Parking can be a little tough during busy times, but overall an easy place to stay. The ice machine and vending machines work well. Just steps away from great breakfast places.

I was driving down from NorCal with some furniture and had never been to Solvang. We just needed some place to sleep for the night. We were given a room that faced Hans Christian Anderson Park, which was nice since it made the room quiet instead of facing the street. There was also a small balcony too. Two queen beds...

Great location for walking to the downtown shops and restaurants, its not even a full 2 blocks from the center. Easy to get in and out of, the staff was very friendly. The room was good and comfortable but a little out dated in the bathroom (shower/toilet).
