The Hamlet Inn is cute, and the counter in the office is tiny. That's the first thing I noticed, it's literally up to knee height. Checking in, we were given room keys that didn't work, and so we were moved to another room. I guess they couldn't get into that room anymore; so long, room. The room we ended up... More

Decor is very minimalist. Beds were comfortable and staff were nice. Clean, but room needed a coat of paint. Excellent location. Good value. Arrived late and staff called us to arrange accommodations.

Stayed here on our way to SF and was very pleasantly surprised how wonderful it was. The room and bathroom were both very clean and simply decorated (in kinda an Ikea way). The hotel itself if right in the middle of everything, so it was a great place to leave your car and just wander around the town. We highly... More

After arriving in Solvang, I cruised the Main Street and observed vacancy signs at ALL hotels. This was 6 pm on Saturday night. I chose The Hamlet due to proximity to restaurants etc. when I entered the desk attendant quoted me a price of $79....then asked "how many"? I told her "just one" after which she looked down at her... More

Stayed here with friends last year and didn't hesitate to book again this year. Great little hotel centrally located in Solvang. Rooms are large with large, comfy beds. Ac is a bit noisy but was very welcome on a warm day. Bathroom has large shower and is perfectly functional. Great location if you are planning a wine tasting tour.

Hamlet Inn is on Mission Drive, in the middle of all the action. It's a great area to stay in, right across from Paula's Pancake House and a ton of other eateries. There are ton of tastings nearby as well, so it makes for a perfect play to stay, location-wise. The Inn was very nice. Clean, the beds were comfortable,... More

The room was small, but quaintly decorated and clean. The property is pleasant, the staff are helpful, and the a/c is COLD. There aren't a lot of extras - but then, you aren't staying in Solvang for the hotel, I expect. It is CENTRAL to the town, an easy walk to virtually everything you will want to see - shops,... More

We stayed here on our PCH trip, last night before LA but I wish we'd stayed in Santa Barbara. Solving was plain weird and on an exceptionally hot day, was too hot to wander around. Come the evening when it was cool enough, everything was shut! The Hamlet was very basic: uncomfortable beds, rubbish shower pressure, no views or communal... More

I have stayed at several properties in Solvang. Due to some procrastination on my part, I was unable to book my favorite lodging on a very busy weekend ( the finale of My Fair Lady at the Festival Theater). I found the Hamlet Inn through a booking engine and we made a reservation for two rooms...not sure what to expect.... More

For the location, this hotel had a great rate and the room was clean and adequate. The woman at check-in gave us a card for discounted wine tastings throughout Solvang. Be sure to try Ebelskevers, there are a few shops that have them.
