This hotel is a scam. They charged my card and said manager is gone for a week and won't refund almost $400 they charged to me card!! Total scam. Reported to Capital One. Don't book here! They just give you the runaround and fraudulently charge your credit card!

The hotel is in a very good location in town and close to the local shops. The hotel itself was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast included cereal, fruit and rolls. We would stay there again.

I just love Solvang. It’s unique, and somehow manages to be charming without being corny. One of the best features about this place is that you can walk everywhere, if you start from the right location. Svendsgaard’s Danish Lodge is perfectly situated for your stay in Solvang. You are within easy walking distance of the Mission, restaurants, shops, and wine...

Thank you for your extensive review on January 19, 2017 of your stay from last October 2016. We apologize for the "not-so-good". After researching your past stay, all was remedied with the note you left housekeeping at the time of your departure which was than brought to the General Manager. We are presently room by room updating our bathrooms, fixtures....

Previously like this hotel. Checked in and told by clerk that my room was ready, next to laundry room, difficult to change since I was told I booked through a 3rd party and not directly with hotel. Apparently hotel favors those booking with directly.Then sent to a lousier room in the back with mold and parking lot street entrance. Good...

Check in was pleasant and friendly, room was in rear, second floor but comfortable and quite adequate. Continental breakfast, basic bagels, some danish (not great) cold cereal and the usual trimmings. Next time I'll get coffee and eat out. Location just about perfect, right on rte 246 and I block to main shopping and restaurants-what could be better.

We had a lovely time at this hotel on a 3 week road trip of Southern CA. Our room was large, homey and comfortable. It was the corner room with windows overlooking Solvang's downtown and this turned out to be wonderful as the street was decorated for Christmas . The location puts you right at the end of downtown so...

Located in the middle of Solvang, this hotel is a great find. The staff were friendly and made good recommendations. It had some nice perks like free coffee and tea on the 2nd floor all day long and free wifi. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom had 2 sinks - win! I would stay here again.

Room was OK. Needed remodeling. The staff was terrible. The girl that checked us in was RUDE, insulting and just downright unpleasant. She insulted my friend also checking in and totally ignored several questions I asked her. If I had her name (she would not give it) I would gladly post it here. The management should get rid of this...

We stopped in Solvang and we didn't know if we were going to stay overnight and I'm glad we did! We saw Svendsgaard's as we were walking around the town and decided to pop in to see if they had rooms available and they did. We got a ground floor room with access to the pool and Jacuzzi. The room...

The hotel looked unique, just like Solvang itself. The employees were nice, I had no issues checking in. The employee there asked where I was from and she gave me recommendations as to how to navigate Solvang. It was appreciated. The rooms themselves are a little dated, but I did not expect Four Seasons in the first place. It was...
