I've been coming to Solvang since I was little and have always wanted to stay a night. I see reviews saying this place is outdated. Compared to contemporary places, yes. However, people have to understand that most of the hotels in Solvang have been there for over 20 years. If you understand this, you will understand that staying at Svendgaard is a good deal. It's so close to everything. You start at one end of town and can walk to the other.
The front desk ladies were so sweet and kind. They pointed out different restaurants and let us know about the farmers' market. They informed us of everything possible having to do with the room and pool.
The room may be outdated compared to many, but it was clean and spacious. The sheets and towels were clean. I saw that they will be doing bathroom upgrades. That would make the rooms better. Yes, walls and floors are a little thin. Again, they've been around for awhile.
The pool and jacuzzi were relaxing and clean. Asking for towels was easy since the office was right outside the gates.
The breakfast was cute. It isn't buffet style, but it was nice. Both attendants were so nice and accommodating. The Danishes were not from Costco but from an actual bakery. The breakfast area was quaint.
If you want a newer hotel, Svendgaard is not for you. If you want to experience Solvang and its history, this is the place to stay.
