Stay right downtown, surrounded by all the wonderful shops and eateries, and you can't go wrong in Solvang. The rooms are sparse and modern in that Scandinavian way, but you're supposed to be out enjoying the countryside, not holed up in your room. Beds are very comfortable, and everything is clean. You also get free breakfast pastry and coffee across... More

We stayed one night just for a visit to our favorite winery. We had never stayed in Solvang because our go to hotel was always the Marriott but that's a different review. This hotel was small but quaint and nice to be within the small cute town of Solvang. I'd recommend it for a night or two.

Great place at a great price and a great location. Wow, what a reception area, light, beautifully decorated with Danish designer furniture. Great welcome. Easy access, right on the main drag, and just across the street from a nice bakery and the brewpub, and not far from a lot of great vineyards. The room was beautiful, so Danish that it... More

I stayed at this hotel for a wedding happening right outside of Solvang last weekend and was hoping for a clean, hip hotel based on the photos I saw online. Upon checking in, I was greeted by a room that looked like it could have been a Motel 6 with a fresh coat of (badly painted) white paint. The room... More

We only stayed one night and had a great deal on a third party website. Convenient located at the beginning of Solvang and walking distance to main street. Room was clean with basic amenities. Only the internet had some problems but for one night it was not a major issue but could be improved. Otherwise nice stay and quiet. Easy... More

Hotel was great. Simple amenities, but very clean. The linens and the towels were high quality, very nice. Included in our stay was a coupons for 2 coffees and 2 pastries at the Danish bakery across the street, which was very cool and very delicious. I'd definitely stay here again.

Just a pleasant place to stay in simulacral Denmark. No frills, but relatively affordable with original styling. Good central location on the main road through town. And they have a boules/bocci court. It's across the street from a couple of good breakfast places, but breakfast doesn't come with the room.

Hotel was centrally located and a good value. Walking distance to everything in this small town. Beds were not very comfortable, only other furnishing was a counter under window with two chairs. We booked for price not amenities so I was ok with it

It is tough to find a reasonably priced room in Solvang. With that said, that's about all you'll get here. Very minimal furnishing, tiny bathroom, weird light fixtures. This place is fine if you don't plan on spending time in your room. One plus, there was a little fridge in the room which was great for leftovers.

It seems like every other place in Solvang is now selling or making wine, capitalizing on the booming wine tourism trade. Unfortunately, that has caused hotel prices in wine country to balloon, and Solvang is no different. The price for a room at the Hamlet Inn is steep for what you get, but pretty decent for Solvang. Our experience was... More
