It was our first visit to Solvang so we didn't know the area and though I read reviews, I just could not get the feel for the hotels. I was looking for something less expensive as everything is fairly pricey in Solvang area. First of all the staff was wonderful, very accomodating from the beginning on making reservations, helping us with a Pac n Play for the baby and just friendly. Secondly the location was perfect - walk to everywhere and in the heart of everything plus convenient parking onsite. I would try and get a room on the second floor maybe above the office area. The third floor was very quiet except for the young couple next door fighting til all hours (not my family). But the elevators do not go to the 3rd floor and getting there involved lots of steps and creaky ones too. The overall appearance of the hotel probably could stand some sprucing up - it seems to be rather old but it is quaint! Our rooms were large and clean though again new soft goods and carpet especially might help. We had a room with a large step in the middle of the room and husband fell off of it within 5 minutes of us checking in. He landed on his fat wallet and didn't hurt himself. I'm joking about the wallet being fat, but it saved his hip, we think. I just hope the ceiling plaster didn't hit the folks in the room below us. We luckily had taken that room instead of giving it to our son's family with the new baby. I had the mother's intuition that someone was going to take a tumble and didn't want the family holding the baby going down. If I had wanted to spend more money, I would suggest the "new" area or cottages. A couple of the cottages are freestanding and are situated around a lovely pond and gorgeous landscaping. As far as the inclusive breakfast, it was okay. Two kinds of cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, waffles, good coffee and lots of pastries. Solvang is a pastry lovers dream town. I'd go back but definitely would consider the second floor or the cottages.
