This property is located nearby the main street with free parking. Rooms are clean and large, basic amenities as well as free continental breakfast. Convenient for staying one night on the way to southern California. Close to restaurant and shops.

We had room 32 which was huge and had a patio over looking the pool and part of Solvang. The room had a fireplace which was nice to sit by after a full day of wine and walking. The rooms are dated but everything was clean on our visit.

Thank you for your recent stay in room # 32. We are hoping to order furniture in the near future which will help tremendously in updating our rooms. Our rooms with the fireplaces are especially nice and are enjoyed by many of our guests.

Rooms REALLY need a facelift. Seriously stained carpeting; old fashioned shower head; stained easy chair upholstery, sagging mattress and bathroom fan that sounded like a freight train. Breakfast includes pastry, cold/hot cereal, bagels or toast. Fruit is a banana or apple. Location is this Lodges biggest plus.

Thank you for your honest review of your stay with us at Svendsgaard's. We have a plan in progress to update our rooms and have been remodeling the bathrooms one at a time.

We stayed five nights, for a conference and seeing the sights. It is such a good deal. We had #9 which had two recliners, I love recliners, this is my first hotel with a recliner! Some rooms had fireplaces, friends said. It took one night to figure out that the heating was on the wall and not coming via fan...

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!

Booking a room through Booking.com is NOT booking a room with the hotel directly! If you call and book a room with the hotel directly there is no charge of a commission or any special restrictions on your reservation. We are happy to refund and move reservations. When you choose to book a NON REFUNDABLE discounted rate that gives you...

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....

It is always a good practice to call the hotel directly if you have a preference to your room location and amenities. At our lodge all 48 rooms are different in size, lay out and type of bed whether it be a king, queen, etc. We do assign our rooms at time of booking. Thank you for your review.

Reviewed 22 December 2016

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...
