I have passed by this motel several times in Solvang thinking it looked good from the outside and conveniently located. I finally had a chance to stay over a weekend. A shame it was not as accommodating as it appeared from the outside. My primary disappointment stems from the room location on the bottom level at street level. The location made it a noisy room and very visible from the sidewalk.
The room was your styled like your typical US highway motel; bed, desk and office chair, TV, dresser, microwave, mini-fridge. A common complaint I have about mini-fridges is they are ineffective and/or noisy. This one was neither. The bathroom was plain with suitable amenities (soap, shampoo, conditioner). The under building parking was good but I wonder if it would
be a bottleneck on a busy weekend. It was too cold to enjoy the pool and hot tub.
A nice touch was the breakfast which although not expansive, better then just a coffee and a muffin.
The front desk staff were not memorable. The cleaning staff, however, were pleasant and helpful.More
